  1. Michael Essien

    Essien sometime ago stated that he wants to ManYoo. Now we want to sign him and there is no news of any striker coming yet. I think we are heading to overloading our midfield yet again and ignoring the simple fact that we need a striker as Forsell and Kezman might be on their way. Doesn't sound reasonable to me.

  3. Ashley Cole

    There more reason for me to increase my hatred for those goofing Gooners. Lousy, confused and disturbed from no sensible payrise and now he is realising that he will never earn as much as JT. But at least Robert Pires said something sensible this week so maybe to every Highbury nutter, there is an exception. Silly Cashley Cole!
  4. Didier Drogba

    I want Drogba to stay and somehow got upset with his comments last week in the news. While he has not been awful as some express, he clearly should have done better. We need another striker just to remind Drogba of his responsibilities...
  5. Didier Drogba

    Maka the great one! For Jose to make him captain in Korea, there must a huge degree of trust and honesty including long balls. Drogba is yet to prove any greatness to deserve to be there... Homesick boys surely don't win many friends but solid performances do.
  6. Ashley Cole

    Tapping will hardly end in football but I hope we learn that one of the best or safest tapping zones/homes is my house. With PK and PZ arranging with me, I can guarantee security and latent pleasure. Unless they ban tap dancing, tapping will remain a continuum.
  7. Didier Drogba

    I think some people are getting some of us very wrong. We are not slagging Drogba off after all like I said earlier, I defended him stoutly on different ocassions and including this forum. But let common sense prevail... Drogba should talk/complain less and do the job and that will endear himself to everyone. Read between the lines properly and deduce accordingly. What does he mean that Marseille is still in his heart? Why all the talk of long balls? If it his right to complain about these things then we the fans have the right to complain about his performances as well. What he needs is focus and determination for next season! Such statements hardly reflect a focused head. If he really cares about Chelsea paying out £24m for his services, then he should think before he says certain things. The saying that to whom much is given, much is expected easily comes to mind. Ask Juventus that paid £12m for Zlatan Ibrahimovich from Ajax and they will tell you that he has done very well and he moved from the Dutch league where Kezman also came from and had to compete with Del Piero and Trezeguet. That Drogba won 2 trophies in his first season is a sign of better things ahead but he still has a lot to prove!
  8. Didier Drogba

    People are only opening their eyes and nothing more. I have defended Drogba at games, at socials and on the internet but there are certain things that players should be aware of. When you sign a megabucks deal, they come with privileges and responsibilities. Part of the responsibilities is adaptation! If you are not sure of where you are going, then don't bother. Simple! Ronaldo has moved from Holland to Spain to Italy and back to Spain and still creates some social atmosphere for himself. Weah left France for Italy and did the job. Sheva is still doing the job. No matter how I defend a player, I do not believe in blind obedience and issues like these by Drogba are uncalled for. Does the talk of the balls at his feet and his head makes any sense to anyone? What kind of excuse is that? I was at the West Brom game in Stamford Bridge and he missed loads at his feet! Same against Liverpool in Anfield, so rather than say such irrational stuff, he should be thinking of next season where he can prove his worth and stop falling threatrically on the pitch. Where the heart believes, it will find a thousands ways of doing its belief but where it doubts, it finds a thousand excuses...
  9. Didier Drogba

    I have supported Drogba through his good and bad moments with Chelsea but him saying that the balls where long rather than at his feet is arrant nonsense! How many times has he failed to dribble an opponent or waste balls at his feet through sloppines? He should rather concentrate on proving his worth next season than giving such daft excuses! If he wants to go back to Marseille, then good luck but Marseille have to pay at least £12m back. I'm fed up of defending players who turn around talk such crap...
  10. Didier Drogba

    There is a saying that Rome was not built in a day even though some might choose the quotation of making hay while the sun shines. All good but for everything in life, there is a time and season. Very few strikers have moved to big clubs and become instantly explosive and this includes the likes of Shevchenko (Kiev to Milan), Crespo (Parma to Lazio) and Jean Pierre-Papin (Marseille to Milan). Only Ronaldo, George Weah and Christian Vieri have defied this thinking. I still feel that Drogba needs more time to settle down properly, have a good pre-season and get over the price tag mentality. If you look at Papin's record with OM, it says something like 23 goals in 29 matches in Europe but he only scored 7 in 13 for Milan. Let's pray that next season, Didier will be the hit-man we all want and the goals rain in like in the early days of Hasselbaink. Fingers crossed!
  11. Michael Essien

    My sixth sense tells me, do we really need him? Should we be gunning for another one-season wonder? Shouldn't we be thinking of developing Tiago, Parker, Jarosik and Smertin? I certainly think that Van Bommell is a better player even though he may be Barcelona bound. Let's groom what we have and only bid for Zambrotta or Del Horno and Adriano or Gilardino. Too many cooks simply spoil the brooth!
  12. Didier Drogba

    I believe that with this honest self assessment, his best will come next season after a proper pre-season warm up and relaxed settling. The transfer fees got to him but I remember Zidane's first season with Real Madrid after a £48m move, it was quite laughable... May the real Drogs stand up in 2005/2006!
