  1. Didier Drogba

    After all the denials, finally, the truth emerges. SHAME! Confession

    Thanks for that, Harry. Now that the smoke is clearing, why the miserable little.... #*&@#*!!. Considering the circumstances, what DD said was spot on: "I have therefore decided not to be part of the vote for the next African Footballer of the Year award. I feel that the contest has lost its worth. I regarded it very highly."

    LOL, can't resist it, eh? But seriously, it seems that Essien went and picked up his award. The counter to DD's assertion would therefore be, if it's possible with Essien why not him? Read This

    Not sure it this has already been posted, but if it's true, then, shame. Any comments? Read this

    Hmmm, was he yellow-carded for sharing a happy moment with a fan?

    Essien's injury looks bad. Check this out: Click here.

    This episode throws up two things: Essien's need to curb his dangerous way of tackling and UEFA's blatant inconsistency. The lad should count himself very fortunate to escape with such a lenient punishment while UEFA should congratulate themselves for successfully smearing their own reputation. One act is just as stupid as the other.

    I looked at the tackle many times and came away convinced it was a horrific tackle. Two such tackles within a couple of months show the lad needs to be taught a very hard lesson. Obviously he didn't quite get it the first time round. Of course, the tackle didn't result in ending Hamann's career. It only caused a very bad bruise. But what is horrific about it is that this sort could be career threatening. Essien's fortunate that no leg has been broken thus far, however if he continues to execute this sort of tackle without due regard, sooner or later he's going to end someone's career. Intent or no intent, man's game or not, nobody should be allowed to charge in, stamping recklessly. UEFA might be inconsistent and even Chelsea haters but if we didn't commit any outrageous foul to begin with, there's no reason for them to act against us. At the end of the day, it wasn't UEFA that pull Essien's strings as he went in, it's the lad himself. I'm afraid that even JM's attempt to take the heat off the lad and divert it onto himself (what with all those important games coming up) couldn't save him from facing the music this time.

    Yup, Malaysia just popped the bubble.

    He may be a bison or a bruiser on pitch but the lad's camera-shy. Did anyone notice how he dropped his head away from the camera at the post match (Betis match) interview? JT had to put a reassuring hand on him every now and then. The lad's totally ill at ease when asked to give his opinion. I may not understand a word he said, but I love his talking on the pitch to bits, lol!

    What a performance the lad put in against Betis. After last night's game his escape is indeed a God-sent, lol.

    Thanks Scott for the info. Time to move on.

    From the euphoric heights of making it to the world cup to the blatant display of basement footie, all within the space of a week, it must have been quite a learning curve for the lad. One minute he was among Ghana's heroes, airlifted in presidential style, and then a vilified cheat the next. What a contrast! I say, regardless of the media's scrutiny/prejudice (comes with the title, I'm afraid), he should take the rap manfully and learn from it. And as for the fans, let's admit that it's a bad foul, and be thankful that we do have able replacements on hand. Let's move on. Anything more is paranoia.

    Interestingly, that bit of him was acknowledged no less by the man himself. To help you all recall, read this. So far in the PL, JM seems to have the upper hand in harnessing that madness. But by what was seen in the last game, he still has some way to go.
  15. Didier Drogba

    Yeah, I remember tearing my hair out watching him play last season. He has received stick from me somewhat, but this season he seems to have turned things around and if he continues to impress, he's going to be our top striker.
