Maybe a mistake, but think both have become victim of the system that works around our best player, rather than a lack of quality of their own. Torres on his own with 3 attacking midfielders behind him has worked well, especially the understanding between Torres and Gerrard. Neither Crouch or Pennant fit into that mix however, even though I still rate both highly.
One thing for sure, you can probably pick the team for these games yourself and not wonder if he's going to rest toress,Gerrard, Babel etc.
.Maybe if he had done that more often you would still be fighting for the Prem?

You do know that is the biggest falacy of the season don't you? Do you know how many league matches Torres was rested in when he was health to play?
Answer is 2, we ended up with draws in both those matches, so if he'd actually made the difference the most we'd be better off is an extra 4 points. Would have guaranteed 4th (maybe 3rd) but not a real threat on the title.
