Eden Hazard: Feels constant criticism of Fernando Torres is unfair

Since completing a £50million move to Stamford Bridge in January 2011, Torres has found his every move dissected in minute detail.

His ability and desire for the game is questioned every time he fails to find the target, with barren runs in front of goal blown out of all proportion.

Torres has conceded in the past that he has found the going tough at times, but he has never shirked away from the challenges put in front of him.

Hazard feels the Spaniard deserves a lot of credit for the manner in which he has conducted himself, with a healthy goal return this season suggesting there is not too much wrong with his game.

"I believe he is the most criticised player in the world," Hazard told L'Equipe.

"As soon as there is a bad match, it is his fault.

"He has missed opportunities, just like everyone else. He is always here trying. He has always got over blips and scored goals. That is really impressive.

"He is quite a reserved guy. He is in his own bubble."

ithout doing any research I would have to say that Richard Wright is the singular most successful ex Ipswich Town player I know. Yes, thats what the kaleidoscopic whirlwind of highs and lows feels like supporting the Tractor Boys. In other exciting news I saw two, count them, TWO squirrels today. What a start to August.
