Halfway through his Chelsea contract, Torres sat down with Chelsea TV's Ben Andrews to reminisce about the first two-plus years.

A few choice quotes (emphasis mine), although there's plenty more in the video.

"It’s the feeling that I have had from the first day. There has been the situation going on with the club, the way the team are going and then my own way. There has been an overreaction about everything. Overreact when I did that miss or if I have a red card or I hit the crossbar instead of scoring a goal. They never talk about the good things. More or less from the beginning to this day, it’s been the way I feel."

"The people are looking at me thinking I should do much better and it’s true. The reason you pay that money for someone is that he has shown in the past he is worth that. Now what you have to show is that you can have the same value or even more value for things you have done in Chelsea. I know I have many things to do at this club to give the confidence back to the owner. The amount of goals I scored last season should be the minimum. I want to ask that of myself but I have enough time. I signed a five-and-a-half year contract and I’m sure the future can only be better."

Watch it; it's worth it.
