  1. Didier Drogba

    I really don't think we should tarnish what is essentially a thread of good feeling with squabbles about who loved who before. The people that have slated Drogba have a right to cheer him now, although those that booed him (for whatever reason) do have a cheek. Nevertheless, they know who they are and I have no desire to see them backtracking or otherwise on this forum. Btw, I have been talking to a French football fan who reckons this sort of performance was common place for Marseille and that he has under performed since joining us. Do you think he has got over a mental barrier (or that his injuries are fully healed), or was it the result of the system where less pressure was put on him. I suppose the idea that it was 'just the system' can be countered by the fact that he has had equally good games as the lone front man for both Marseille and us.

  4. Salomon Kalou

    I like that idea a lot.
  5. Salomon Kalou

    Kuijt seems a likely purchase even if the following reasons are spurious; 1. Jose's purchase of Kezman shows a respect for the Dutch League 2. Arnesen knows the player very well 3. He plays in a 433 a lot (well I have seen him there every time I have seen Feyenoord) and is very good at linking the play. I would be all for having a look at Kuijt.
  6. Salomon Kalou

    Thanks for the heads-up. To me he looks a more complete Robinho, but that is no good thing. Jefferson Farfan is someone we were allegedly involved in the transfer of...in your more learned opinion could he play as the central striker of a 433 or not (certainly we know he can play on the wing)? And is he good enough for Chelsea?

    quote:Originally posted by BazzablueTo be expected, I guess.

  8. Didier Drogba

    I wonder what would happen on here if Drogba actually finished up with 20 goals this season. Only needs 7 to do it....quite possible.
  9. Gianfranco Zola

    Surely the fact that I only mentioned Chiesa implied what you just said.

  11. Didier Drogba

    The abuse he received was utterly absurd and quite frankly more disgraceful than any diving or posturing ever could be. There is no excuse for it, no reasonable explanation and in the fullness of time I have no doubt the majority of people that did it will feel thoroughly ashamed.
  12. Gianfranco Zola

    No...Chiesa did. But you have a point...Allthough Eidur is good enough to be the link man and, tbh, you don't need to be that clever to get it to Crespo, just put it through and he will be on it.
  13. Ashley Cole

    quote:Originally posted by JSLO22Oh, and I vote that we do whatever it takes to pry Zambrotta from Juve. id="quote"> id="quote">Which, of course, is pointles....because we will fail.
  14. Ashley Cole

    I personally can't see it happening and would agree with Michael and his back 4; Ferreira Terry Gallas Bridge. Birdge is not so far off Cole at anything, Ashley perhaps having that little bit more about him....but we don't know how these injuries have affected Ashley, whereas we pretty much know from his performances for Fulham that Wayne is still the same player he ever was: A great crosser, great engine and a very hard worker....the next Le Saux.
  15. Didier Drogba

    Marquez is a cheat and an average centreback. We have enough to destroy them on the counterattack.
  16. Didier Drogba

    Fabulous performance....a performance Carlton is admittedly not yet capable of.

    quote:Originally posted by Richard RedmondI hope you're not right. I still retain asperations that Robben will cut them to shreds, though like you, I'm not too hopefull of anyone else doing it at the minute. In any event, nice to see Barca knocked out of the Spanish Cup last night by Real Zaragoza! id="quote"> id="quote">I am absolutely convinced that that will happen...we didn't have Robben against them last season and their fullbacks leave a great deal of space in behind....Robben and Joe v Messi and Ronnie....should be amusing.

Are you kidding? The famous English sense of irony at work? Admittedly, Carlton had a good game against Everton, but there's a huge difference in class between those two. Hold on, let me anticipate your counter-arguments. A) Carlton's as good as Drogba was at his age, maybe even Henry, and will become equally good with just the right training. B) Carlton's not a "bitch" like Drogba. id="quote"> id="quote">There isn't a 'huge difference in class'...Drogba is better and more experienced, but for the job that he would be asked to have done I don't think he could have done THAT much better than Carlton. No Carlton isn't better than Henry was at his age....he is better than DD was and I have faith that he will go on and be at least as good as DD is now, but that is totally irrelevant.
  19. Didier Drogba

    It's hard to say we have missed him that much....It's not like he could have done a great deal more than Carlton...I spose his experience makes him more valuable in situations like we had against Everton and Charlton.
  20. Frank Arnesen

    All reasons why Jose would like him and why he would fit in with us. Saw some highlights of his game at the weekend, scored one and was involved in 2 more....very unselfish, very intelligent.
  21. Frank Arnesen

    I think he is good, he has a good scoring record, has the qualities essential for leading our line...I'm not convinced he is world class, but I think if someone like Van Basten says he will be then you can't really argue. Van Basten has dropped Van Nistlerooy to accomodate Kuyt too.
  22. Frank Arnesen

    Nevertheless his alleged relationship with Kuyt would lead me to believe that he is a distinct possibility for the summer.
  23. Didier Drogba

    Had a 24 million pound game v West Ham....he has too few of them, but when they come it's superb to watch. He did noticeably less back chat and moaning too.
  24. Chelsea Reserve & Youth Team

    Very impressive performance from Michael Mancienne in this match. He looked so composed. Him and Scott Sinclair both look like super prospects.
  25. Didier Drogba

    Ii am a believer in Forssell...Drogba is an excellent player to have around and with improvement he can be a top player for us. I dont want another striker at the club and I dont think we will get one for a while.
