I'd just like to get the opinion of the rest of the people on the site with regards to Leto. Yay or nae? I know he's young but I wasn't very taken by him when he last played. Good to see Lucas getting a start I think he'll be a cracking player for us in the future.

he done some good things but also some bad but that is to be expected i think anyway, great game by the boys tonight torres well what can you say but simply great

Your Manager is a bloody idiot. Does he value the CC higher than PL? Why would he not play Torres against Brum?

michael105uk, Reading were playing at home, and much more likely to attack than Birmingham, who were playing away, against a top four club. Reading left a lot of space for a pacy striker to use, Birmingham didn't leave much space, and played with ten players behind the ball. That's why Rafa left Torres out of the Birmingham game and played him in this one, it had nothing to do with resting him. Rafa isn't an idiot, it just didn't work out for him against Birmingham.

Torres is head and shoulders above any of your strikers in class the gulfs so big its almost embarrassing

Leto - a lad with a lot of ability, who just needs time to settle. His pass for Nando's first was perfect. Leiva also looked promising, but for me the standout performer on the night (aside from the obvious) was Sissoko. Looks twice the player he was a year ago, more mature, a better passer, and not diving in as much these days.

Some of the criticism of Rafa over that last week or so has been so over the top, but also not surprising. Liverpool still remain unbeaten this season and yet to concede any goals other than penalties in the league. The media berate Benitez for not wanting his captain to be risked further injury playing for England, an injury from which Gerrard is yet to recover from, going by current form. The same time slag him off for trying to use all of his forwards and not just relying on Torres. While the medias love affair with Maureen has now been cut short with Alkie Ferguson now being their single focus of affection, notice how much they're fawning over Wenger again. There is no mention of the rotations at Arseole, MFUC or Chelski, yet they concentrate on Liverpool with injuries to Gerrard, Carragher, Alonso, Mascherano etc. contributing to the rotations are all conveniently forgotten. Jeff Stelling had to comment on the treatment Torres received. With the cloggers at Portsmouth and Birmingham it's no wonder Benetiz tries to protect the 22 year old kid who has only been in the country for 6 weeks. It is significant and a credit to Torres how he has remained unfazed by the attention dealt him by defences like Terry and Co, managing without the dramatics of Drogba and Ronaldo. I am sure he will have a special season as long as the refs keep an eye on the cloggers.
