Is Torres the Man for the Job?

Much like the life of an acid fiend, Torres' career at Chelsea has had its up, its downs, and the out right ridiculous. When Torres arrived I know the expectations of many people were sky high, but we all know that reality did not agree with those expectations. It became clear very quickly that the Torres that came to Chelsea was not the same man that scored two goals on us earlier in the season for Liverpool. After his showing towards the end of last season and at the Euro's it seems that Torres has regained his form. So far this season he has played very well, even though there are skeptics who say he should be scoring more goals. Now there is no denying that we need another striker, Torres can not play every game and after loaning out Lukaku we are left with only Sturridge, I don't know about you but I don't think Sturridge will be able to get the job done. So with all the rumors of this past transfer window still floating about, will Torres continue to be our main man in January? The only player that comes to mind that was rumored to come here that eventually made a move somewhere else is Hulk, and I may be wrong about that. Still Cavani and Falcoa are constantly being linked with us, Falcoa being linked more often lately. If we aquire one of these players, what does this mean for Torres? We've had a great start to the season, the counter attack has looked dangerous, ball movement has been sublime, and the defense has played well for the most part. Torres has been vital for us this season, constantly creating problems for defenses and even sticking a few in the back of the net. But has he done enough to keep his position if we aquire Falcoa or Cavani? I believe no, despite the fact that he is working harder than I have ever seen, it still is going to come down to his goal tally, he needs to finish more to keep his spot. A big move in January is happening, we need it to happen, we need another option up front. but if Torres wants to keep getting his time he needs to start producing more. Love me or hate me, I don't care, this is merely my thoughts, I am in no way an expert. please comment and leave your thoughts as I am interested in hearing perspectives of other people.
