Didier Drogba in The Chelsea Forum Posted October 11, 2005 · Report reply quote:Originally posted by Blue JockMaybe I have missed something here, as I have been away for a few days but, to my mind, Drogba didn't improve against Liverpool. He's the same player he always was (and for avoidance of doubt, I have not been a big fan). What happened was we got him to play differently. For a year, he has been trying to be a big target man. This shows him at his weakest. Poor control among other things. However, at Anfield, we got him running in the channels for just about the first time since he arrived. Every one of his goals came from him running in space at the opposition from a wide position. He drew the sacred Carragher and Hyppia (who looked as if he was pulling a caravan by the speed he was doing) wide and into places where they were not comfortable and he looked like the player we bought from Marseille, rather than the one who has been playing for us for the past year. His challenge is to keep doing that. And for those who think he became a striking God at Anfield, just remember the swipe he took at the ball for the third goal when he sclaffed it into Joe Cole's path. Same as it ever was.id="quote">id="quote">Your beautiful post simply connotes what some of us have been saying on this thread. One good game and some are singing his praise to the high heavens as if he scored a hat-trick in Anfield. Form is temporary while class is permanent!
