Chelsea

New striker option for Chelsea

So Chelsea continue to search for another striker. The market seems inflated despite the economic downturn in Europe and The Blues may find themselves paying over the odds yet again. The other problem with purchasing a high profile goalscorer is that it may well destroy the new found, but still fragile, confidence of Fernando Torres.

So why don’t Chelsea get Didier back in the short term? If stories coming out of China are to be believed then the Ivorian may soon be returning from the the Far East after infighting at his current club.

If Drogba does become a free agent again then surely RDM will have a think about him as a short term solution. It may not be a coincidence that Torres’ form has improved since Didier’s departure. Drogba was such a huge figure at Stamford Bridge that his shadow eclipsed Torres for long periods. But, even at 34, few teams would turn down the chance to work with this born winner.

Drogba could be used sparingly, in much the same way as Giggs and Scholes at Manchester United. He wouldn’t start too many games but his experience could vital in a stupendously skillful but less experienced squad than in times past.

If Chelsea don’t succeed in signing a new striker in the next day or so, they may just turn to Drogba once more.

    You’re kidding right? Bring Drogba back now? NO! He can come and coach in five years time. But right now he needs to play somewhere else, for the good of both parties. It would be a disaster to bring him back now.

    no his gone if he comes back it could disrupt current states and future developments-rather go for a long term project.-Drogba has left in victory and so it should stay

    He have served Chelseafc, so he is always welcome back to Chelsea, so that they can forget about Hulk/Cavani sag and will create chance for our young promising Romalu Lukaku

    We don’t need him, we need Cavani, Facao, Shurrle, or Jovetic. Torres į̸̸̨n̶̲̥̅̊ į̸̸̨§ form S̴̩ȍ ðȍ nut let Drogba distract his attention S̴̩ȍ γ̲̣̣̥ȍΰ pple should rethink… Blues fǿя̩̥̊ life.

    what about Piazon?is it not right time RDM give him opportunity and confidence like he gave to Betrand?

    I think bringing Drogba back to Chelsea is nt the isue. I think Hulk or Cavani can try there best in dat roll.

    Why don’t we just get falcao. There is no denying the form that he is in now. But yeah drogba would still do us good

    D.D Is very gud and strong striker, but i knw d tym he leave chelsea it is a right tym 4 him. But 4 him 2 come back it is just as if he want to destroy d gud record and a great name he has build in cfc. It will be so gud if he can 4get dreamin of comin back 2 cfc in orda nt 2 spoil his gud name and record

    Pls nd pls let call spade a spade D D had done great things at chelsea why cant we just build the trust in Fernado. He has developed a great confident in himself and style of playing right now is superb. Let leave Drog out this issue

    Please RDM should just forget about cavani,hulk.shurle of a thing go and sign papi cise of newcastle or 40 goal striker Rhodes of huddersfield town at a more economical prices, please sir Emenalo. Thank you

    Bringing in Didier back 2 stamford bridge will never add any good value 2 chelsea squad rather it will only cause disaster 2 upfront players such as fenerdo. Pls RDM shld think abt dis very well, Drogba has done it for chelsea and we appreciate that.

    my take here is this, if chelsea shld go 4 falcao, 4get abt hulk n cavani, if they cnt get falcao then they shld promote piazon to senior team. If non of d above, then drogba shld come back. Lets not rely on torres n that SELFISH sturrige only

  44. vincent okpe

    I will love to see Drogba back again in chelsea, even for laon; couse we love him.

    torres is not a threate to any difender we need to sign two strong strikers.
