The Wildcard - Divock Origi

Amidst a congregation of voices and accumulation of opinions regarding the way in which Liverpool tackle the upcoming 2015/16 season; one which looks increasingly difficult with every rival reinforcement, much disputation has been given to the area up the front of the pitch, the one where Liverpool fans have both been spoiled and agitated in the likes of Luis Suarez, Fernando Torres, Andy Carroll and Andriy Voronin. The reader can assimilate the names to either the former or the latter; …

As you can see, I am a huge fan of Torres; a Torres fanatic would sound a bit more apt though.
