  1. Didier Drogba

    Even though Drogba is a proven striker and still quality, all I can say is that he is bad for the image of Chelsea FC. In the end, Chelsea's image is what will drive the team's marketability both from a financial standpoint as well as from an appeal perspective towards future signings. Drogba's attitude and general image nowadays in the football world is hurting Chelsea's and a wise decision would be to let him move on simply for that. Raise talent through the youth systems - that's what inspires.

    perhaps I might clarify. when I stated that Drogba leaving would allow for us to be more "well-liked," I in fact meant that we would be more well-respected following his departure. Everyone is entitled to their respective opinions but I as a Chelsea fan do in fact care very much how I and indeed how others look at our club. I feel that caring about the reputation of our club, not only as champions but as an example in heart and sportsmanship, moves our club in the right direction. I sure hope that RM does not believe that money and trophies alone will make Chelsea into the world-wide brand he envisions.

    Agreed. Great memories of Drogba's performances for Chelsea. But, his transfer should allow Chelsea to move in the right direction. We'll certainly be a better liked club following his departure!

    Can't see how Adebayor is worth 32m. Sorry, despite his goal tally, he simply does not impress me that much. He is good in the air and is a decent finisher, that's all really for me. No pace, no real quality on the ball or from range. He is a team-player that works well with a passing team like Arsenal but I can't see his abilities all-in-all being valued at 32million. Adebayor > Beckham? Adebayor > Shevchenko in his prime? No chance. If that figure is a real asking price, sounds to me like Arsenal putting a non-agreeable figure on Adebayor to stave off offers to buy him. I don't think Adebayor will leave Arsenal this summer. But I can see Drogba leaving for Inter Milan and Sheva returning to AC Milan (if Roman will allow it).

    It's not so much the fact that he's selfish on the pitch that I dislike about Drogba - it's moreso that he has an air of arrogance in the way that he carries himself in general. To me, he lacks the humility that makes him a likeable player. Drogba kind of reminds me (to a lesser extent albeit) of what I dislike about "sports stars" here in America - they are all money-rich and carry a diva-like attitude that I simply cannot support. One of the qualities of modern football players that I appreciate the most is their humble approach to the sport, their fame as well as the selfless mentality that they maintain when talking in regards to their team.

    Berlusconi wants Sheva to replace Ronaldo AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi has reiterated his desire to take Andriy Shevchenko back to the San Siro this summer, describing him as the 'ideal choice' to replace the injured Ronaldo. Brazil striker Ronaldo is likely to be sidelined until November after undergoing surgery on ruptured knee ligaments in Paris last month. And Berlusconi believes Chelsea's former Milan favourite Shevchenko can fill the void. He said: 'I think regularly about Shevchenko and I often speak to him. 'The fans would understand that this would be the ideal choice for us. He is a player who is ready to help and for us that would be the ideal solution. 'I don't think that (Chelsea owner Roman) Abramovich will have a problem in letting him go.' Shevchenko became Milan's second all-time leading goalscorer in a glorious seven-year spell which ended in the summer of 2006 when he joined Chelsea for £30million. However, he has failed to shine at Stamford Bridge, although his record of 20 goals in 68 appearances is still respectable.

    whatever. Shevchenko should go if Drogba stays at Chelsea - be it to AC Milan or wherever. I've always enjoyed watching him play and to have the former European player-of-the-year and one of Pele's 100 best players of all-time sitting on the bench takes away from the casual spectator who does admire his style of football. Chelsea will in all likelihood be all for selling Sheva if Drogba decides he wants to stay at Stamford Bridge (however, who knows on that?). Really - is there a bigger squad in the world than Chelsea? I can't think of another team (except perhaps Barca) that has as many huge names sitting on the bench. I do hope Chelsea comes out with a cup this year given the roster that the team has.
