  1. Ashley Cole

    Loads. It's why I think he's a better played to have than Bridge; if the keeper is off his line Cole is there. Guaranteed.
  2. New Kits

    I think it looks quite nice. Nothing fancy.
  3. Didier Drogba

    I'd be tempted to sell him; but only because of his (apparent) lack of commitment. If his form is good and he shows he wants to play for us then I'd keep him. It also depends on who we could get as a replacement. There aren't many players around could play the role he does so effectively.
  4. Salomon Kalou

    My my my. I have actually read through, thanks very much. I'm not a complete imbecile. I was expanding on the post which you called 'spam'. Reinstating the facts when a player is being unfairly (or not) criticised is a logical step to take. EDIT: It is also quite ironic on the back of your second post Hanuma, that both Kalou and Shevchenko have scored today.
  5. Salomon Kalou

    I'm glad you think so. And evidently what I said was backing that he is showing the promise to be good in the future. Or did you miss that bit. True also that it is speculation that Shevchenko would've skied it; would you have put money on him to finish it with as much composure as Kalou did? As for Makalambay, do we ever see him as being good enough, whether he gets playing time or not? The fact is those who could be good enough, Kalou being the topic of discussion in this thread, need to opportunities. Considering in pretty much ever other post you have said you have seen nothing of promise from him then this is quite a turnaround for the books. Maybe you weren't watching him close enough in other games. Isn't it just.
  6. Salomon Kalou

    It's hardly spam. The debate going on is saying Kalou's done this, hasn't done that etc etc. Kalou is doing exactly what is being asked of him. It may have been said before but many people overlook the fact he is young and, as yet, inexperienced; both in regards to the Premiership and in regards to big games. He (Chelsea fan forever) has every right to say that he should not be criticised as heavily when, as people have pointed out, he is making an impact and he is playing an important role in games. Would we have got another goal against Spurs if he wasn't on the field? Because I think Shevchenko would've skied it (yet again). Is Kalou good enough at the moment? Certainly you can't say he warrants a starting place in every game. He didn't, as some people have pointed out, do anything outstanding against City. But how is he ever going to improve to be good enough for the first team if he doesn't get any playing time at all? Look at Terry, the games he got as a youngster helped him become a fantastic player, and England's best player (I don't care what people think of Rooney and Gerrard, pound for pound Terry is England's best player and if you can't see that you're blind). Now the same could easily happen with Kalou (obviously with exception of him becoming England's best player) and unless he gets the games we won't know. Going to say this post is spam too?
  7. Salomon Kalou

    Why are people bringing Carlton Cole into a debate on Kalou? Kalou has shown promise for Chelsea, I don't think you can bring that into question. The goal against Spurs was very well taken. The problem is that after doing the hard work in many games he misses 'easy' chances. I'd like to see him play off Drogba, because I think that would work better than Shevchenko. He has pace and skill, and on many occasions after coming on has changed games in our favour. Can the same be said of someone like SWP? No. And seeing as you are discussing Cole; there was a time when he showed great talent. I remember a good few goals he scored. But someone made a bad decision with sending him out on loan and he never recovered his own dignity; being frozen out of the team after making a good impact in the previous season. He'd be a good player for a premiership club if they actually took a gamlbe, the way Big Sam did with Kevin Davies. All things considered though, he wouldn't have made it after RA came along. So it was better for us to offload him, better for him too. He just needs to take the opportunity.
  8. Ashley Cole

    Cole was immense again today and I feel he is definately worth the loss of Gallas. 100% effort, maximum performance, never let's you down. Nice work Jose.
  9. Didier Drogba

    Were you there? And that isn't the point, you can hear the booing and jeering, not the get ups, thus, the majority would be booing and jeering, there is no denying that.
  10. Didier Drogba

    I know, I was merely ensuring we understood each other.
  11. Didier Drogba

    Good point nona. The boos where merely out of malice and spite: there was no way they could have predicted that it was going to inspire him to improve, and that is, in my view, definately not what the booing was for. Booing your own team player is low. Any fan who does that/did that does not deserve to call themselves fans.
  12. Didier Drogba

    Yes luck does come into it. But this season most of his goals have been about his quality, not luck.
  13. Didier Drogba

    The one against Charlton may have been lucky, but the one against Liverpool certainly wasn't, nor the diving header vs Man City. I think saying he's "been quite lucky" is a little daft, don't you? That's just my view anyway.
  14. Didier Drogba

    So Drogba missed a lot of chances in the last few years; he scored some good goals, and more importantly some important ones when it counted. Couldn't hit a cows arse with a banjo? He could. Just not everytime. So though you may have had reason to state it at the time, it definately doesn't apply now. Coincidentally, how long ago was the post in question?
  15. Didier Drogba

    I'm sure if you bothered to read the opening post, cfc82, you'd see that he wasn't being classed as a player who can't; the topic starter was relating to a previous post by another member and asking whether said person has now changed his mind.
