Do we want drogba to stay after this?

Recommended Posts

surprised it's not got a mention on here already, unless I missed it...stuff from didier's autobiography that is about to come out and his constant desire to leave...even considered going on strike after jose left...great striker, will always appreciate what he did for us, although will never understand why he thinks chelsea has been such a nightmare considering we helped him win major trophies and made his profile even higher...hope he has one last good game and then he can see if the grass is truly greener

drogba as stated his desire to leave many times in the past

and i like many other chelsea fans have mixed feelings about him

1 minute you love him to bits and the next your asking yourself why's he still on the pitch

i would love him to stay, but think he will go

Personally I can’t wait to see the back off him. I hate his attitude when playing football and the way he has constantly moaned about the club. Also does anyone not remember his first 2 seasons?? Total crap, couldn’t hit a barn door, has only come good last season and has been very hit & miss this season.

Time to get one back on the Shevchenko deal - if we can get £20-25 on him that would represent, for once, some shrewdness on our part.

However, I fear the timing of this is very deliberate and timed to make sure Chelsea cannot negotiate from a strong position so he can be assured of a transfer out regardless.

He was as upset as the rest of us when Jose left, which was understandable, but has still given his all in every game since.

He's been a great player for us, but if he wants to move, it's a shame but we have to let him go.

I think the same as Tim, great player on the pitch, too out-spoken off it.

He said he's going, we know he's going, I just hope he gives us a goodbye present v Utd

Dont see a big problem with that piece in the Getsworse

His 'thoughts' are probably the same as all the other players at the time of the JM turmoil.

Not sure it does any harm to air them now - but does he really need the money from a ghost written autobio?

I want him to stay, he needs a manager to manage him better.

But if he goes to Italy i can see him failing.

i feel the same way, about drogba failing in italy. Maybe he could adjust to the style of play, but going to a team like AC Milan, he'll be playing alongside Kaka/Pato/Inzaghi(?) and be used as a team player, not a sole striker. Argh it's hard to explain.....

Absolutely nothing new in that article in the Express. Drogba has never hidden that he's been unsettled for much of the time since he was sold by Marseille at a time when he was happy there and didn't want to leave them. The bit about him thinking of refusing to play against Valencia came out at the time, when he said he'd decided to stay for the season and then seek a move.

So it's bollox for the paper to write:

But Chelsea fans will be shocked to learn he even considered boycotting the Champions League until the night before their group match in Valencia.

because it's not even news.

I don't have a problem with him thinking that now's the tme to go, after 4 years here. It would be great if he decided that he's happy to stay after all, but he's made his position clear. He's served us brilliantly for most of the time, despite his off-field whingeing and on-field histrionics, and he'll be a hard act to follow, but it may be that we've had his best years.

I can't see him succeeding anywhere else apart from the PL tbh.

Hate his attitude, and imo his an embarrassment when he wilts on the floor.

But when his on strike... his unstoppable, but yea, an offer in region of £30 mill + would suffice.

Drogba wants to go, so he has to go. Simple as. No good keeping a player who doesn't want to be there.

Can we replace him? No. We Can't. Certainly not with a "like for like" forward. He is unique. He is capable of winning the game on Wednesday night on his own. There is no other forward in the world who is that good. Our loss will be someone else's gain and he will be just as devatating playing for a top club in Serie A or La Liga. In fact, probably more so than in the EPL, because he will most likely be paired with another forward alongside him rather than the usual isolated, lone striker role he is shackled with now.

Morning Just.

If he goes to Jose's team, what makes you think Jose will play another forward alongside Drogba, when he didnt do it at Chelsea ?

He'd be crazy to go to Italy , the game there is f**king awful and its as corrupt as the The Vatican.

I'd have to say though , who's going to replace him because lets face it, on his day he's world class and has so many qualities as a player . I'd be sorry to see him leave but i think his carry on at times embarasses the club and the fans .

Adore him for all the goals he's scored for us and a nice winner on Wed would be a graceful goodbye and he'd leave on good terms with me anyway.

I think it is time for him to move on, I do not want him to go and I think we shall miss him a lot if we do not replace him with a top striker. However he has done the business for us and I think this is the right time for him to leave, he also seems like he wants to go so just let him.

I've always been a big Drogba fan, even in the first 2 years, defending him on this site when many on here were slating him.

However, if he wants to leave we can't stop him, so let's just hope Kenyon negotiates a good fee for him.

Yes he's irreplaceable in many ways, but look on the positive side... We often moan about our style of football, but part of that is due to Drogba's enormous presence up front, meaning that we often resort to the long ball. Maybe different strikers next season will change our style of play for the better!

Best striker in the world on his day IMO. But I honestly can't see us getting anymore than 20 million pounds for him. In fact, I think his more likely to move for around 15. I feel sorry for the people thinking we will get 30+ million pounds for him, because I think they are likely to be left very disappointed.
