Whose surname is similar to torrent... Whatever54 has understood the guess just fine.
Given the clue, I'm not sure it is El Nino actually. He's been getting plenty of action recently, if it were him you would think the clue would relate to him scoring
off the pitch in spite of him missing the target on it. There are a lot of people this could be about if we're honest. It might be someone who isn't playing much, doesn't seem to bothered about it.
