"I have no clue how to react to this news seriously. No matter what form he is in. I still love him and miss him. YNWA Nando!"

"This is not the way forward. He has lost his pace and done very little at Chelsea. I would prefere Robbie F to put his boots back on."
29th Aug 2013 11:02
"I can see the stumbling block in his wage. Unless he agrees on paycut, FSG will not pay him to his current salary at the Chelskis. Wonder if he can be the same Torres again."
29th Aug 2013 11:08
29th Aug 2013 11:11
"no thanks ;-/ torres you deserted us so stay away ! "
29th Aug 2013 11:13
"Just for free, please.., and low wage"
29th Aug 2013 11:13
"Who cooks this up! Torres is done! He's too slow for the premier league....he would do well in leagues with lesser pace...maybe he should try going to Italy or something!"
29th Aug 2013 11:14
"GOD i hope not, if we are going to go for someone go for MATA, but think he may cost a bit more than the 3-4million FsG and IA are willing to pay, "
29th Aug 2013 11:15
"This is was not expecting and is probably way off the mark but imagine we could get Torres firing again with Suarez and Sturridge as a front 3. What are peoples thoughts on Torres returning? not sure he will ever find top form again? Eto'o going to Chelski should mean game over for Torres. Offer £7M."
29th Aug 2013 11:16
"Err no thanks let him rot at whaat he called a 'BIGGER CLUB' not the torres we had n e way something like 40 goals in 4 years no thank you"
29th Aug 2013 11:17
"Would love to see Torres back in the Red Shirt. But sadly don,t think it will happen.."
29th Aug 2013 11:18
"How true's that? and for how much?? El Nino would do a full circle with Karma does he chose to return and head many goals! Can't imagine though; He's in the box waiting to put his head to a suarez cross! or on the run waiting Coutinho to put a perfect through ball! If we manage to sign him/CB then Hell Awaits you EPL!!"

29th Aug 2013 11:30
"U cannot be serious? Why the he'll would we want him back. He is pathetic these days. Couldn't kick his way out of a wet paper bag. If we waist money on him and don't sign a defender, the Ayre and FSG should retire for good."
29th Aug 2013 11:30
"Bwahahaha rolling on the floor laughing my red nut sack off !!!!! As if this is gonna happen , pls give Brendan a wee bit more credit than this !! Still funny tho !!"

29th Aug 2013 11:35
"Torres has never been the same player since he left us and generally not in favour of ex players returning anyway"
29th Aug 2013 11:37
"would be great to have him back "
29th Aug 2013 11:37
"if this happens il be outside anfield tuesday calling for ayre to be sacked. shocking stuff. lies and more lies. cough up or walk lads."
29th Aug 2013 11:39
"I got no words to say but surely i really LOVE Torres & am feeling too bad that it hasn't work out for him with Chelsea. So to see him coming back, i would welcome him coz some thing is telling me he might come back to form with our incredible support we keep showing our players. YNWA"
29th Aug 2013 11:43
"bull.....what is happening to this club? ?????????????where is the marquee signing???? ian ayre out...f.s.g telling u..we goin nowhere this season. .we gonna struggle in the league also. .forget about champions league"
29th Aug 2013 11:48
"KINGY27 great comment had me in sches. Torres please no not only is he awful he is 29 age doesn't bother me but he wont improve or regain his old lfc form he was bad a year before he left"
29th Aug 2013 11:50
"It wouldn't be a totally bad thing if Torres returned to anfield for a cut price.I think that linking up with the likes of Gerrard and Coutinho and Suarez and Br managing Torres could return to his best."
29th Aug 2013 11:51
"i would lovetorres return he never disrespected our club whatever went on with his transfer and played well for us and with stevie g. stonecoldlc leroy clifton"
29th Aug 2013 11:51
"Unfortunately the number 9 shirt is unavailable, and he'd just about justify a squad number, so we could re-work his song like this: "Betrayed us once, but now he's back, Torres, Torres; And sure without his scoring knack, Torres, Torres; He was a legend but now he's poor, he should be playing for Trabzonspor, Fernando Torres, Liverpool's 44...""
29th Aug 2013 11:53
"Tbh this isn't such a bad rumour. I'd take Nando back as we're losing out to all our priority signings to the likes of spurs n chelsea. Another experienced forward to add to the team n a return to anfield I think the goals will be back aswell"
29th Aug 2013 11:53
"only chance fr him to chance fr him to come is via free + accepting a massive pay cut lol"
29th Aug 2013 11:54
"He will be welcome back, he is a top striker, Chelsea do not know his value. YNWA"
29th Aug 2013 11:55
"cool..lfc im equally disappointed with transfer policy but how are we struggle in league ? 2wins from 2 dont care how we got them we got them. when suarez returns we will be even stronger if gerrard says we are stronger & more confident than last year ill take what he says as fact"
29th Aug 2013 12:05
"what a load of manure,,, yeah the story and the player,,, why do yous write such !!!!!!"
29th Aug 2013 12:05
"Torres is better than he have shown at Chelsea..maybe it was their mistake,how to get best out of him and he wants to get fit again at Pool.I think welcome Fernando..with lower price,he is still young."
29th Aug 2013 12:09
"Torres will not come back to Liverpool. He's all about image and #9, the number 9 jumper has been taken. "
29th Aug 2013 12:09
"Strange one this. Mixed reactions all over. The Liverpool players would welcome him back no doubt but would the fans?"

"The style of play at Chelsea is sooooooo . A bit like what we played under Roy hodgson. It was never going to suit nando. If we get a loan deal I think he would flourish. We play the game to suit him. World cup year ahead and a player trying to prove a point. Loan with option to buy please. Win win"
29th Aug 2013 12:14
"lol now that as gotta be a joke ,and besides hes to tall we dont have tall strikers "
29th Aug 2013 12:15

29th Aug 2013 12:18
"Someone's making stories!! Why wud he want to come back to a "small" team?? Nah give me another option. Fed up with these stupid rumours now. When is L/pool gonna make a singing that wud make da fans smile?? "sad face""

"Lol we have become very desperate as none of our big targets want to join us,never mind I'm sure Hughes of derby county will make the supporters happy lol "
29th Aug 2013 12:31
"I hope this is not going to happen. Basically Torres was never technically gifted. He had speed and agility. He had injuries and needed to rely more on technique and he has now been found out. Torres is not the same player and going back for a striker who has hardly scored in 2 years does not make sense."

"Please be true!!! He would do great with Luis all he needs is confidence!!!"
29th Aug 2013 12:43
"Sturridge is on fire and with Suarez to come back we don't need a washed up Torres. The midfield and CB are the positions we must strengthen before the TW windows. "
29th Aug 2013 12:56
"Doubt it, he is a flop.."
29th Aug 2013 13:02
"We need a world class CB not a fking judas!"
29th Aug 2013 13:06
"As bad as this is to say, Torres played really well at the Confed Cup, and I would be happy to see him back at Liverpool. Didn't think I'd say this back in 2011!"
29th Aug 2013 13:08
"Part of me wants him if he can find the net nut the other part says for his price go get someone else like Welliton or Damião"
29th Aug 2013 13:11
"Why LFC media kept this Transfer Speculation site on. The only news I want to hear is that FSG are trying to sell LFC and excuse theirselves for the lies they said to us over & over again. American Owners = LIES LIES LIES LIES LIES LIES"
29th Aug 2013 13:11
"We don't want him back."
29th Aug 2013 13:13
"No thanks!Ian Rush is faster!!"
29th Aug 2013 13:34

29th Aug 2013 13:42
"This could be good business, financially isn't going to cost what he was sold for. He would try/work hard for world cup and to make amends with the fans.Footballers do not loose skill / understanding only confidence and pace. Bit of confidence and effort from him and surely when he started scoring people would forgive."

"I always said I would love to see Torres and Suarez play together up front. Yes his form has dipped of late but I believe BR is the right man to get it back. Can you imagin a fit and inform Torres and Suarez up there together? Deadly is not the word. Do it BR and FSG. "
29th Aug 2013 14:43
"Front 3 of Suarez, Sturridge , Torres would terrify any defender. Especially with Gerrard and Coutinho feeding them. Then Aspas, Alberto, Borini, Sterling as support. Great attack!"

"Its a great news tht torress is coming back 2 liv. He will once again b d star wit liv."
29th Aug 2013 15:43
"Only liv know how 2 use torres skill. He mde a big mistake once by leaving liv but I hope tht this time he will stay for good. It will b a lesson 2 all d othr plyrs who left their club like liv..with a huge fans."
29th Aug 2013 15:47
"Like 2 see torres n suarez in actiom 2gether.."
29th Aug 2013 15:55
"Definitely not the traitor. May he continue to decline forever to serve as an example to ls and others who may wish to go down that rotten route. anyone remember the comments he made when he got to chelsea? over our dead bodies"
29th Aug 2013 16:00
"We would rather spend money on a young promising striker like Muriel who can double his value in a couple of seasons and is not coming to the end of his career rather just starting!"
29th Aug 2013 16:11
"buddha, you dont seem to be saying much these days. i miss your comments. please lets have your views on this punk."
29th Aug 2013 16:14
"I know hes split the fans saying oh hes crap now and the others saying he could still do a job we miss him, well this could be a pretty good move if it was to be pulled off, i know it might be all balls but i think he could only ever do it for liverpool and atletico, chelsea was more about ambition and money not loyalty that he has for L and A"
29th Aug 2013 16:22
"Let him cm and warm our bench"
29th Aug 2013 16:24
"well i hope he does not come back. they can keep the traitor.YNWA "
29th Aug 2013 16:29
"Now this is very interesting , for me it was the likes of Gerrard who brought out the best in Torres and with Gerrard and cotiniho providing that kind of service and support I believe that Torres can be close to the best he showed when at Anfield before,And Suarez yet to come back from ban LFC would be forgiven for the lack of Marquee signings.Moses on loan ,Toby for defence."
29th Aug 2013 16:35
"chelea have signed Samuel Eto on 1 year deal ,so LFC should make their move for Moses on loan and Torres who I'm sure if an offer was made Chelsea would let go at cut price."
29th Aug 2013 16:42
"He said "more ambitious team". Have any of you seen anything this transfer window that says he's wrong? Chelsea have signed quality, we haven't even signed quany....Why would he come here?"
29th Aug 2013 16:43
"quant ity what a crap website"
29th Aug 2013 16:44
"quant ity what a crap website"
29th Aug 2013 16:46
"He would come back because he wants to play football and be loved. He wont ever achieve this at Chelsea now, all the LFC Torres haters would quickly change their tune if he was scoring goals for LFC again."
29th Aug 2013 16:47
" about no?"
29th Aug 2013 17:02
"He is not welcome here at LFC. We would have been terrific if he had stayed and combined with Suarez. Top 4 and CL would have been secured every season then. ... you betrayed us at the 11th hour ... we don't need you. "
29th Aug 2013 17:14
"have Liverpool bid 20m for yarmolenko? no mention here. chelsea would expect too much for torres. he has not got the form."
29th Aug 2013 17:18
"Maureen says he can go for £20.5Million so get IN there Mr Ayres ..... Ian! .... Ian?! .... Wake up, Ian! Come one Man get a GRIP! "
29th Aug 2013 17:21
"Torres should never have left us...and his career would have continued to be great at LFC! What a waste...Chelski really ruined it for him...always a fan...but sadly don't think we need him back now."
29th Aug 2013 17:27
"LOL what a load of tripe, will have to wash my eyes now"
29th Aug 2013 17:29
"the truth is he shouldn't have left to go to Chelsea, KD's original intention was to pair him up with Saurez but because he left at last minute we were forced to settle for Carroll who never was worth 35 mil. imagine if we had Saurez pairing up with Torres back then ... His best days were here with Gerrard & Alonso midfield providing those through balls "
29th Aug 2013 17:39
"I can honestly say I would welcome this move. Think he would flourish when put back with Gerrard. Throw in Sturridge and Suarez & that would be one of the best forward lines we have ever had regardless of what form he is in."
29th Aug 2013 18:12
"If we signed another forward of his profile at a reasonable cut price, I'd have faith in BR and say go ahead. This guy would be dying to relive YNWA memories at an age juust after peak(he's a professional that'l have a slow decline after last ESPN"2012/13 Season Totals 56GamesStarted,27goals without getting into detailed stats.PLUS passion and style of play,equals good."
29th Aug 2013 18:12
"Come on BR go and get Yarmalenko and a top defender. Stop pussyfooting about as you have done for the last four weeks. Kolo & Ali are injured and Alberto is one for the future. There is only Aspas and Mignolet who are in the first team. We have sold Carroll, Downing, Shelvey, loaned Reina, Assaidi. Carra has retired. Your pet Allen is injured.We need at least three more players.."
29th Aug 2013 18:20
"abeshg- hahahaaaaa, I mean jajajajajaaa!"
29th Aug 2013 18:42
"Absolutely incredibly BS. If captain fantastic says YES, then I would support our captain. I doubt Torres can out-pace SG even at now."
29th Aug 2013 18:59
"only if he gets to do the work on his speed. Otherwise no way!"
29th Aug 2013 19:08

29th Aug 2013 21:45
"It wont happen. We'd have to pay at least 20 for him and I'm happy with our strikers. Just really want to get a cb and a winger in. Torres has had a mare at chelski but I'd still have him for free!"
29th Aug 2013 21:50
"Torres was a hero in a red shirt when he first joined Liverpool, but he was poor for the last season and a half and hasn't done any better at Chelsea. Why would we want a striker who has done nothing for almost five years now?"
29th Aug 2013 21:51
"would have him back in a heartbeat, steveie an nando again would be unreal, steveie would get him going. We still need to get some one for CB aswell"

"Strong attack frontline: Coutinho, Suarez, Torres, Sturridge with support from midfield leading man Gerrard.....what a year it would be. "
30th Aug 2013 1:22
"for 8mil at the most, yeah id have him back, he'd be another option. The thing is tho our strike force is way better than Chelsea's so if he cant get games there he will hardly come here to sit on the bench. Off back to Spain id say. "
30th Aug 2013 1:26
"What do people think about Kaka??? He wants out of Madrid...sure he is not the player he once was, and is 31, but Stevie and Kolo have shown still lots of life in 30 somethings. I think he would be a good addition to the squad, still has the quality, great experience(a leader/captain) for our youthful attack, and surely he would be available for quite cheap. "
30th Aug 2013 2:03
"matc9482, that's brilliant. Laughed so hard. Almost wish we sign him and give him the 44 number just so we can sing that song! :-p To be honest, I am quite torn on whether I want him back or not. I'll never forget how much sulking he did in his last days here, not to mention the 'I'm moving to a bigger club' jibe."
30th Aug 2013 2:08
"LOL,,,,now this should be a joke of the month,,,,,"
30th Aug 2013 2:26
"I would love to see him back! Would it be the right thing to do though? Probably not considering how he's performed at Chelsea. But he's been one of my personal favourite strikers since I first saw him in the Euros 2004, second only to Raul."

30th Aug 2013 6:55
"sure, sure, like FSG are going to bankroll yet another "experienced" player. I think toure showed why FSG put their faith in youth. The most ridiculous thing about this story is the clowns writing it said we are going to trade torres for suarez plus looks like those guys got hold of wengers crack pipe hahahah"
30th Aug 2013 8:24
"No thank you, I'm done with him. Apparently Kaka wants to leave, worth a shot I think. But defenders first and act fast! "
30th Aug 2013 9:09

"so he is willing to swallow his pride and join lfc again. the club he threw away. because he has dropped way down the pecking order at chelskis. all bcos he wants to play in the world cup. he deserves all the treatment he is getting. if lfc brings him back, then we are stupid for getting a player totally out of form."
