New Contracts For Everyone!

Recommended Posts


Well we seem to have gone contract crazy now.

Essien, Paulo, Cech, Bridge...

Are we actually seeing some long awaited 'long-term-ism'?

i think this has to be a good sign, unless Drogba gets a new deal... :proud:

We all know that Drogba had a pretty awful season last time out, but Scolari is well known for bring ing out the nest in people and not taking any moodyness and complaining. Keeo Drogba to see how he does under Scolari, if he's awful, please, continue to slate him :lol:. But, if he's uberly amazing, guess who'll be eating there words with me looking onwards with a very, very smug face?

Do not care how well he looks playing.

My missis looks pretty good, but if she told me I 'disgusted' her and flirted with other suitors alll the time I would get rid. Chelsea should have enough respect for themselves to get rid.

I can never cheer him again.

The 'disgust' comments by DD need to be cleared up. He left Marseille after a year of phenomenal success, when he'd made the breakthrough from unproven and unknown player with talent to a real hot property. He loved the club and its fans and wanted to stay there.

Chelsea offered mega bucks that Marseille couldn't afford to turn down and he was sold against his wishes. Nothing against Chelsea, he just wanted to stay where he was happy. He felt used and exploited as they'd sold him as a commodity and not respected his wishes.

That was what disgusted DD - not Chelsea. You are twisting his words.

It took him a long time to settle at the club and he got terrible stick, from his own fans as well as the media. Jose stuck by him and knew he was a fantastic player who'd come good, although DD had his doubts as he'd only really had one good year in his career - he was a late developer.

IMO he's never really settled in London and has always intended to move on - sacking Jose made that desire pretty firm.

He'd go if he got a good offer from a big club, but if he doesn't and the club make it clear we want him I think he'll be happy to stick around.

RBJ, if the "disgusted" comments were so maliciously twisted, then why did Didier take so frigging long to come out and disavow them in the media? Seems to me that only after 8-10 months, and a Champions League final that may yet be his career epitaph, he decided maybe he was a bit harsh and came crawling back for love.

Its clear that between that, the stories of him crying when Jose left, and the comments about the team being "broken" he was Jose's player and not Chelsea's. That was a time when we needed professionals, and all Drogba did was wallow in misery and rip the club in the press. He clearly couldnt be arsed to give the fans any of his consideration, so forgive me if I am short of it when making excuses for him.

Have truer words ever been spoken on this forum? Hats off, Jim

This is what he said:

http://itn.co.uk/news/108df6fb03ea6a67ab4818fae2b384ad.html

He said: "I said to myself 'I couldn't give a damn' (that Marseille have accepted a bid). Maybe that's going to shock supporters of Chelsea, but I didn't want to leave. I even did some things that were almost absurd, in order not to go to Chelsea, such as during the medical.

"Going to the hospital in Paris, I was praying they would find a problem with my knee, or a problem with anything so the move would collapse."

He added: "I was disgusted. I realised that signing for Chelsea was disgusting. It's hard to explain. It's hard to understand because most of all, people see the financial side, or even the sporting side. But I simply wasn't happy."

The 'disgust' was never directed at Chelsea but at the fact that he'd been sold when he didn't want to leave.

He's never had to disavow them because he was just saying how he felt at the time (4 years ago).

Sorry whatever way you want to interpret it (and while I disagree with your opinion I respect it :D ) that statement just sticks in the craw for me. A club I have loved, worked to keep in existance, gone to see despite hooliganism and racism - that if you were not there in the 70's and 80's you just would not understand. He feeling in the air was indescribable for this old Shed End boy.

I have cheered this guy on when he has played badly, as I did Lamps in his first season, Fleck, Sutton etc etc. - Hell I even cheeered on Kezman when frankly he couldn't have scored in a brothel with tenners wrapped around his todger!!!!

All I ask is that they do not take the piss.

With his comments and constant statements that he wants to leave, I feel that Drogba has not only crossed the line he has vaulted over it like Jonathon Edwards at his best, the line is now so far back it is a dot to him!!!!

I just do not want him associated with something I love. Soppy I know, but there you go. Frankly i do not know what I will do if he wears the Lion Rampant again...

Hopefully No new contract for SWP, Malouda, Pizzaro, Sheva etc.. I do believe the contract extension for those players is a good sign, the last thing I want is for a new manager to clean out half of the team and bring loads of new faces. As fo Didier, unless he put his mind to the game, we really should get rid of him. However the problem is we seemed to be priced him out of the market by putting a 20+ millions on his head. :D

its good to see essien, bridge and cech sign contract extentions

this will hopefully make lampard realize which side his bread is buttered and the grass is not quite so green on the other side

as for drogba

if he plays like he did against liverpool in the CL semi, week in week out, repeats the 06/07 season and bangs in another 30 odd goals, i'm sure most would forgive his previous misdameanours

unfortunatley i cant see it happening, his desire to leave chelsea has been well publicised, even before mourhino's departure, drogba has always thought him self bigger and better than he actually is, he likes to shoot his mouth off on and off the pitch, with his rolling around in agony antics, and still thinks he's the greatest player in the world

and thats probably why at this moment in time no one is banging down the door to sign him, not even jose

That is by far and away the best post I've ever read and sums up my feelings perfectly - I don't want to have to defend him against opposition fans any more.

Blushing now.

Thanks guys.

I understand that some will feel differently, but does a good performance really wipe out everything else. If so then I hear Joey Barton is looking for a club. I just want our players to be ones that want to be there and will appreciate us us much as I appreciate them.

Oh and...I also tire of defending in indefensible.

The thing is that interview was taken in Nov 2007 just after Jose left and the press had a major witch hunt into who would follow him out of Chelsea. They trawelled through previous interviews and came up with this, DD even admitted his words were taken out of context (not for the first time.) Drogba was more dissapointed with Marseille's decision to sell rather than disgusted to sign for Chelsea. Another journalist trying and suceeding in turning Chelsea fans against their own players

Essien urges Drogba deal

Essien is hoping that does not prove to be the case and has urged his team-mate to stay at Stamford Bridge.

"Hopefully things will work out for Didier because we need him to stay," said Essien.

"If he can make up his mind it will be good for us. He knows what he wants so it is up to him."

Kenyon has told that we are only going to bring in one new player so we can't really lose Drogba if the new player is lets say Robinho.

He needs to make up his mind

The thing is, I don't think it is up to Drogba just to make up his mind. I think that the fact is that given the opportunity he would leave, but the reality is that there aren't any clubs who are currently in a position to put in a 25+ million pound bid (plus 100k+ per week in wages) for a 30 year old striker.

And, if you believe Kenyon, Robinho (or a Robinho-type player) will be our last purchase of the summer. Meaning we are not expecting to buy another striker, as we are not expecting to lose Drogba.

So, we all need to come to terms with the fact that we are going to have to put up with at least another season of the whinging-whining-diving-chelsea hating-champions league losing one (who also happens to be the best striker in the world at the moment by a country mile, and has played massive parts in winning the trophies that we have won in recent times).

An on form Drogba is something i'd rather see playing for CFC than against us. I too cant stand some of the crap he's reported to say at times, and as for his diving well sometimes its just embarrasing.

I would have thought that with a new manager coming in it was time to clear the decks of anybody whether its Drogba or even Lampard who does'nt want to be there for whatever reason.

Then i think about times in the last few seasons of playing without those 2 in the team, and whether we would have won any of the trophies we have without them and can see why the club/manager would want to keep them.

Its the same old question though, is a player the same player if his heart is elsewhere? (which at times it clearly was with DD)

We dont have anybody who can lead the line like Drogba and i think Deco has only signed a 2yr deal, not ideal if it takes him a season to settle so i think they should both stay.

One things for certain though Drogba must be gagged of the pitch and given a big Phil kick up the arse on it, or sell him now and replace him because as i said on his day he's up there with the best i just could'nt stand another season of his antics.
