Please guys, dont be childish and suggest things like putting down any of our players banner because you want other players banner to be hanged.
The Torres banner should be taken down because it has the Shankly Gates logo on it. Whoever put it up just bleached the Liverpool one from red to blue. fucking embarrassing
Are they just called flags or is there another name for them?
I love Didier Drogba for everything he's done for the club, perhaps more than most. I remember being extremely excited when he first arrived because I remember seeing him in Marseille's UEFA Cup run. He was brilliant and I thought we'd signed a real talent. I wasn't wrong! But my point is this - Didier is just one of a quintet of players who are perhaps five of the greatest ever men to pull on a Chelsea shirt. I'm referring to John Terry, Petr Cech, Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard and of course, Didier himself. Any of the five would be worthy of being immortalised forever in stone, but there are men like Gianfranco Zola who have never been given the honour of being put as a statue.
Maybe in 50 years. Think how long it took for Osgood's statue to be commissioned and then sculpted. A statue should be a posthumous honour, in my personal opinion!
Disagree to that. To me, and I'm sure others will agree, Drogba is on par with Lampard in terms of legendary status. I'm sure that's the general consensus?
Drogba is to Chelsea something like Etoo was for Barca, but Lampard to Chelsea is something like Messi is to Barca.
Lamps won everything possible on club stage, what is most important, in times when Henry and Ronaldinho played (2005), Frank was for many best player in the world and certainly among top 5 for all people. He came with a little transfer, for small money and become legend. Something I hope Kdb will become in 10 years.
Im sure somehow you can replace scorer for Drogba, but its much harder when you have to replace playmaker who was playing for over 10 years. I guess Barca will never replace Xavi or Messi, while it was easier to replace Etoo, despite it looked impossible.
