How many does Drogba have this season? 8 in all comps! id="quote"> id="quote">Who cares about Van Nis? Given that he plays for a far inferior team, one would expect his goal tally to be fewer. quote:Originally posted by dooberAfter looking at the chance the other night against Betis, Drogba maybe should have kept it down, but on the other hand I thought the pace of the cross gave him little chance-he was always leant too far back. Besides he struck it on his left. That's always a good excuse! id="quote"> id="quote">Give me strength. It wasn't a case of "keeping it down". It was a case of sticking his leg out at the right time. All that was needed was a touch and he fluffed it. As for the pace of the cross, anything slower and the keeper would have got it. A cross is supposed to be hot firmly for God's sake. Do you honestly think he would have scored the goal that Crespo did? id="quote"> id="quote">I do believe he would have scored it. He has scored 1 header already this season-okay only one, but better than none. In fact looking at the goals he has scored for Chelsea he has netted 5 headers out of the 24 goals he has scored in his Chelsea career. Oh and the Ruud comparison. Who has started more games this season? Ruud has started every game for United in all comps-Drogba hasn't for Chelsea. Although you may think that matters little-Drogba has started four fewer than Ruud and has actually scored two as a sub. Think what he may have done had he have started the game? The chance on Wed' night against Betis was not as easy as you say. When looking at the cross, it was already in the air at some speed and with Drogba already being held back, leaning away from the ball. Has he got to virtually twist his whole leg around to tap it with his instep of his left foot? It would have probably ended in the Shed Uppper!
