Drogba asked Torres how his goal record has come along since he left. Torres did not find that question amusing.

To the guys saying this is a bad idea, who would you have as our 3rd striker?

We're in the middle of the season playing a key match and Costa is injured. Lukaku is on but so far it's not working. The manager looks at the bench. Would you prefer him to see Drogba or Ba?

Yes he is 36 years old, but then again so is Klose.

If the only argument against getting him back as 3rd choice striker / coach is the perfect way he left the club the first time around, then I'm not sure I understand. If Mourinho thinks Drogba at 36 to be a perfect candidate for the player-coach role because he won't complain about the lack of playing time yet can still contribute massively when called upon then why not get him?

Also who's to say his second farewell wouldn't be even more legendary, for example after a treble winning season? ;)

Like someone said before his final kick against Bayern should remain his final kick with Chelsea. He left in a brilliant way and Didier is a legend but we have to move on. We shouldnt be bringing him back at 36 years of age. Not supportive of this idea at all and hope there is no truth to it. I would rather us discipline Lukaku and keep him along than get Drogba back.

It's pointless, doing it for the sake of doing it. On this, we might as well retain Ba for another season, I doubt Drogba's wage demands have dropped considering what he got paid in China and then Gala.

Reckon he's no longer good enough to be second striker though. He can be 3rd and more coach than player, but not second. The way Costa plays, very physical, he's bound to pick up injuries.

I don't want it to happen. But then i do. I'm so conflicted. How great would it be to have our player coach come in with 5 mins to go to beat Arsenal though.

Thank goodness it's only the Daily Fail reporting it. We must be crazy if we think a 36 year old Drogba, Torres (who is one of the worst strikers in the league) and new to the league Diego Costa are going to rival Man City's fire power of Aguero, Dzeko, Negredo and Jovetic. Vast difference in quality and the problems of last season remain.

If we're serious about winning the league or champions league, the least we can do is do everything possible to keep Lukaku or sign a suitable quality striker to challenge Costa's place in the team.

No one really wants our back up strikers to Costa to be Drogba and Torres.

But if we have Costa and Lukaku, who would people rather have as a third choice out of the two?
