Our new Drogba in what way?

What made Drogba so special was how consistently he rose to the big occasions, Ba hasn't really had a big occasion to rise to in his career yet (or at least not compared to a cup final). Only time will tell if Ba can be the hero that Drogba was.

He would need to make an impact in Wembley before any such comparisons are drawn. 


Drogba was never a stop gap striker - he was here and provided far more than just goals in his first two seasons and he had players like Crespo/ Anelka/ Sheva/ Torres to content with all those he out performed and became the main man at the club. Also his leadership qualities in big matches and capability to raise his games when needed are things that made him stand out and become a legend at the club.


Best of Luck to Ba trying to emulate what Drogba managed to achieve at the club but such comparisons at this time are just disrespectful.

Never, for one he will not be given the opportunity to start on a regular basis and lead the line

he is a stop gap signing, a punt by the owner as back up to FT just in case

if FT continues to stiff through May a 'marquee' striker will be signed in the summer

the board's stupid srategy is so transparent

If he transitions well and shows the type of form he did at Newcastle, I don't see anything preventing him from becoming our new... Jimmy Floyd.




At a stretch.


Tall order, etc, etc, etc.


Seriously, to even entertain his name in the same sentence as Drogba's at this stage is just silly.
