One thing about Drogba he always turn up at finals and big CL games 

Of course, but all fans need to get used to the fact that a player who scored as many goals in finals as Drogba will never be seen in that beautiful shirt again.

Imagine Barca fans comparing whoever ends up playing in Messi's position to Lionel himself.

It took me seeing Lamps in that shitty blue shirt to realise that the majority of players purely see football as a job and the team he plays for as just another company.

And like us when we switch jobs we have a couple of mates we see now n then but we do our best for the new boss and guys we work with.

Its just us mug supporters who stay with oine team our whole life. Its us who use every emotion going when our teams doing good or bad.

So now tho I do get upset having to think a top,much needed player will go (whether its his choice or the clubs) its summet we gotta accept and hope we can replace him with someone even better.

Me I'd like Diego to stay and us to get Rom or Sanchez up on RW and use the top 3 as roaming strikers.

What we going to say about Eden in the summer when RM make a firm push for him and it turns his head?

Personally I would think that every player we had would stay this next year at least to see if Conte could make a go of us in Europe before jumping ship. They are starting players in the best team in the PL, supposedly the toughest league going.

Players do genuinely love fans and will do their best to win games.  But when the 90min is over, they focus on their personal future and family. 

Nothing wrong with that.

But they wouldn't mind where or who those fans were that they were doing their best to win games for and I couldn't care less.

Just as long as while they are with us they're totally 100% Chelsea and they play their heart out for us. After they leave we just gotta say ta and thanks for the memories.

Unless a player comes thru the academy from a 8 year old to being a part of the furniture in the 1st team a normal player will just think about moving,family conditions,practicality etc. Unless hes a young up and coming guy in the media spotlight who will be thinking about different things like using clubs as stepping stones,regular starts,having his ego stroked. Loadsa diff things depending on character..

We cant give Diego stick for being homesick and wanting to be back around people who he knows and loves. Id never blame anyone for wanting that. Done it myself. But hes still scored goals for us so what more can we ask of the lad?.

In this interview he seems like he's keeping his options open for a move to China 

 

So he admitted it. He can now fuck off for all I care, thought he was different but is really a big baby. It's not like he's making it hard to let him go either with those shit shows he's been putting on this year. Have a feeling Lukaku will replace him.

I think it's between lukaku or morata we will get to replace Costa 


I personally hope Conte goes all out for Belotti. Probably a cheaper option than them and he would fit our team perfectly.

People are also forgetting that Drogba wasn't just a goalscorer, but he was a leader. Turns up in massive games that mattered. His final season with us, while played s*** most of the time, showed leadership on that pitch and in the dressing room. Which Costa lacks at the moment.

Drogba didnt fight with his manager? Scolari. Anyway, i wouldn't take any "fight" a player has with Conte seriously, I mean we are talking about the same man who called Buffon a halfwit.

Point is Costa may have wanted to leave and didn't get what he wanted, yet there was no problem in the first half of the season and even since China gate when hes supposedly been awful hes still scored 3 in 6 and hit the woodwork I think twice (I know for sure vs Arsenal but swear there was another time too). If Torres had a run like that the be a national holiday declaring him back to his best

 

Oh, I forgot about the terrible Scolari. Anyway.

Actually he scored 4 in 11 matches (10 matches if we don't count Brentford - came in as sub for 15 mins) that he has played since the China gate. FA Cup games are just as important as the PL games since we should be aiming to get a League Double. 

Hitting the woodwork counts as a shot off target, so it's nothing special. Do you know how many times Torres has "hit the woodwork?" Hitting the woodwork unless rebounds to a Chelsea player and scores doesn't do jack for us. Might as well shoot over the bar. I'd rather he shoot towards the goalkeeper and pray the keeper makes a mistake.

Costa has a lot (and I mean a lot) of work to do to consider him around the same caliber as Drogba. Him bragging about wanting to go to Atletico before doesn't do him or us any favours and him saying that makes me think he is not happy here.

We seriously need a replacement in the summer, especially when CL returns to our schedule.

Drogba was a big game player in cup finals and no one will probably match his record in them, Costa however is a bigger flat track bully and that's why his record as a lead striker at big clubs is 2 titles in 3 years and likely to be 3 in 4 very soon. Drogba only ever won 1 title being the main man up top (04/05 and 05/06 he shared the role with Eidur then Crespo). Yes he's got a lot to do as it stands to match Drogba, but ten years ago Didier had a lot to do to match Hasselbaink.

4 in 10 isn't the most disastrous run in the world, and I'm sure he did but I can't recall Torres ever hitting the woodwork.

We need another striker to compete with him, but id be careful about selling him despite his flaws.
