The Fernando Torres ‘Chelsea Are Slow’ Interview (Video)

Chris Wright

13th, September 2011


By Chris Wright

As you may be aware, Fernando Torres has been dragged from pillar to post in sections of the media this weekend for supposedly calling his Chelsea teammates ‘slow’ during an interview with Liga BBVA while away on international duty with Spain – with Torres claiming that his words had been mistranslated into Spanish and then back into English again.

Skip to the 2:35 mark for the ‘offending’ section of the interview…

Yep, that’s what all the hubbub was about. You may well have garnered that Senor Torres made absolutely no reference at all to Chelsea’s ponderous O.A.Ps what-so-ever, just that Juan Mata and Daniel Sturridge would offer a quicker, more ‘vertical’ style of play.

All in all, it’s about as offensive as Cliff Richard handing out lollipops and gumdrops to orphans of war – it’s little wonder that modern footballers give such anondyne, banal responses under questioning these days.

    you mean, a perfectly innocuous comment was deliberately misinterpreted and then misrepresented by unethical journalists (a tautology).

    i just NEVER saw that coming.

  2. Sex God says:

    Ah yes, Fernando Torres.

    A once future potential Sex God understudy but unfortunately couldn’t live up to that potential.

  3. __wowza says:

    ^ do you just lurk torres threads and post that wherever you go?

    FAO: ‘Sex God’

    I’ve already emailed you this but it seems that your address isn’t kosher.

    Anyway, can you please knock the ‘Sex God’ thing on the head? I’m getting sick of answering the daily emails and comments we receive asking for you to be banned from Pies.

    I don’t want to ban you (please feel free to continue contributing, that’s what Pies is all about) but I ask that you please stop the cut & paste ‘Sex God’ stuff or I will just begin deleting your comments.

    Thanks in advance,

    Chris (Pies)

    I thought the comments he made where in Spanish and that he said the meaning got lost in translation from Spanish to English? Unless his time at Liverpool has distorted his idea of the English language everything he said was in proper non scouser English.

  6. Sex God says:

    @Chris & All

    Ah yes, Chris.

    A true future potential Sex God.

    Ah yes, apologies for having not received your e-mail.
    I have misplaced the password for that particular address and am unable to relocate it, causing Me to be unable to log into that particular account.
    I am sure the e-mail was worthy of a true future potential Sex God.

    I meant to change the address I use for this website some time ago but it appears to have slipped My mind.

    I am sorry that you have been pestered and received such slack and messages calling for My banning, Chris.
    It appears that My work is somewhat of an acquired taste, if you will.

    I have made many friends, followers, and even some foes here.
    I have dealt with the ups and downs of a true Deity; the impersonations, the defamations, the jeering, the doubters, the list goes on and on.
    But I have never let this get to Me.
    When trouble strikes in life, we must move forward.

    I must apologise to all My followers and friends for the fact that I will no longer be able to provide you with such work, but the situation is out of My hands.

    Some people will accept you, others won’t, but this will not change the person you are; always remember that.

    So, my friends, “Is this the end for Sex God on Pies?” you ask.
    Who knows.
    I cannot say for sure.

    If My friends and followers need me, I may return one day. Everything I have done has been for you, My friends and followers.
    You may have to wait a very long time for My return, but your faith may someday prevail.

    All I can do is thank My loyal followers and friends for all the good times we have had together. The fond memories will remain forever.

    A parting note for Chris:
    Please beware of the impersonators who may try to take advantage of the situation at hand. I am sure you are aware of them. Please do not let them disgrace My name in your eyes while I am not here.
    I have changed My e-mail address to a valid one.
    Feel free to contact me whenever you like and distribute it to my followers and friends on their request.
    Thank you for your work, Chris & Co.

    Now I must leave you all, followers, friends, and even foes. I wish you all the very best for the future.


    Sex God

    wow. just wow.
    now that he’s gone I kind of miss his posts

  8. Tanya says:

    Now I don’t have enough free time to read the entire comment above but I can’t help but wonder why ‘sex god’ capitalises ‘me’. False sense of self importance.

  9. Bob says:

    Unless you want to delete half the shite people spout on this site then leave Sex God alone. He does no harm at all. If you’re annoyed don’t read it. Climb down out of your arsehole. It’s only a blog about bollocks anyway.

  10. Dont worry says:

    Keep doing it sexgod its a laugh when people complain, it just shows people are just panzy ass wankers that have to complain about something so petty in order to feel like the achieved something in life.

  11. Willie says:

    The man said nothing offensive…

  12. Anabelle says:

    Fernando was just stating the obvious. Some of the players are old and slow.

    Get over it.

  13. […] to have called his teammates slow. Video, courtesy of Who Ate All the Pies, shows that it was a perfectly innocuous comment, blown up by the […]
