Shine the light - on - Didier Drogba

Postby specnur » Mon Aug 17, 2009 4:10 am

I have been driven to create this thread ,because this will probably be the great man's last really big season with chelsea due to his age. I'm predicting him to have a massive season for Chelsea ,not in those superficial goal tallies ,but meaningful goals tallies. THis weekend we saw him do what he has done on many occasions for Chelsea as you can see in my previous post. yes some here think that i have a love affair with Drogba
So unlike those of you who look the other way while a parent beats their child in front of us as we do nothing,i will make this thread to shine the light on the man who will be the integral part of Chelsea's most successful season to date.

Not captain courageous Terry or Lampard, who the nationalistic Morons on the Chelsea terraces and those in the media , who would have you believe are the driving force behind any success cHelsea have had. BUt Drogba who's efforts will not go unnoticed ,because of threads like this.
So therefore i will Shine the light on this incredible player who's personality still overshadows his performance with the less sophisticated of football "fans".

Chelsea 2 Hull 1
Drogba ties the game ,then scores the winner with a goal of incredible finesse and vision. Yes, it was Hull City and not man u liverpool or Arsenal this time ,but it was a game that if Chelsea had lost would have put a massive dent into the confidence of a team hell bent on winning the league and Champions league.
I wouldn't usually make a lot of a win against such a team ,but every team wants to start on their best foot so Chelsea played the best Hull there was to offer.
An impeccable start to a very tough but fruitful season for the Blues.

The goal he scored was shear luck. Drogba himself said it was a cross.

This is ridiculous.

Shall I start a new thread on the goal that Vermaelen scored the other day?

You can't create a whole thread on a player scoring two goals.

I think the purpose of this thread Stan is that specnurs putting a line in the sand now saying Drogbas going to have a massive season, especially in big games.

This thread will be used by him to keep track of it during the season.

The second Drogba goal was fluke. Admission or not it clearly was one.

Drogba is strong performer there's no doubt about it. One that has been a part of actually winning the title. I wouldn't want him to play for United though. He's antics on the field and his cheap shots remarks when Chelsea have difficulties are not needed. He knows he is an influential figure at the club and has used it at times to get attention.

However, there's no doubt that if he stays injury free and the midfield gives him the service he will pile on goals.

Fair enough then.

I thought it was simply for that one game.

Fluke or not, Drogba does these things all the time, winning games when needed in difficuklt situations. The first goal was great enough wasnt it?

Not all the time. When Avram Grant and Scolari were in charge and facing hard times he didn't lift a finger to help them out. Ancelotti isn't going to be pushed around like that though so Drogba must up the ante once again.

I agree specnur - Drogba is a fantastic player. an old fashioned all round centre forward. the kind i admire.

however, to say 'then scores the winner with a goal of incredible finesse and vision' when he himself admitted it was supposed to be a cross is stretching it a bit.

Sorry I got the wrong card out.

It should have been a yellow one!

Back on topic

I wouldn't say that Drogba was that brilliant in this game and he missed a number of chances.

It was a great goal the first one he scored from a free kick but he has admitted the second goal was a fluke.

I do think though that he will be a big game player again this season but it will be the last before he moves else where.

First of all, Mr Hill did not play The Race Card. Hes just being a racist by insinuating all blacks smoke crack. There is a key difference and you sir failed to see that and have disgraced the race card.

Good day to you.

that is what i dont get when people talk about meaningful goal tallies .....when does a goal not mean anything ... :lol: If you score 30 goals in one season they are all meaningful ....it is ludicrous to suggest otherwise .
