Yeah Torreira’s a defensive mid but not in the traditional sense, he’s kinda like a cross between a destroyer and a deep lying midfielder.

The only downside to his game is that he’s only 5’6 so he’s not gonna win that many headers but tackling wise he can go toe to toe with the best of them. He’s literally bodied both Ninja (Nainggolan) & Kessie this season and they’re both tanks.


And on top of his ability to break break the lines with his passing, his tackling & his technique he’s also added goals to his game this season too.

You might be able to tell but I love this little guy, he’s my favorite Cm in Europe this season (outside the top teams) just ahead of Ndombele & Mlinkovic-Savic.

How do you watch so much football? I hadn’t even heard of Mlinkovic-Savic until now haha.

Haha Twitter’s key, I don’t Tweet but my timelines basically full of football (and abit of boxing) so that keeps me up to date nicely.

Youtube helps alot aswell with following certain players, so say if I miss a game I can easily catch their individual highlights online when I’ve got abit of time to kill on my break or whenever.

I’d say what really helps me the most is being able to kill two birds with one stone by having a pc in the same room as my treadmill, bench press & that so I can stream games while working out.

This is why I want someone like Thomas Tuchel so we can fight fire with fire.
