We must keep Didier Drogba!

Premier League Chelsea
comment on the article

The only front men I've heard of being linked to Chelsea this summer are Eto, Villa and Adriano.

If you want my opinion Drogba is just as good if not better than all three AND is tried and tested in the prem.

Eto would be a good replacement but with reports of him being used as bait for Barca to secure the overrated Adebayor, he may not be an option for Scolari.

Villa would be a class act, but he doesn't want to leave Spain.

Let's face it Adriano's been rubbish of late (in Italy) and Jose wants rid so unless Phil can work miracles (hopefully he can) Adriano would be a huge risk.

So, for me Didier is vital and just like Scolari I want him to stay 200%.

What do you guys think. Should we try everything to keep him or is there somebody better out there that's available?

Drogba up front on his own or with his one of his multiple personalities is still one of the world's finest and he deserves more silverware at Chelsea.
He frustrates me but I hope he stays because there
isn't another sriker in Europe who has his mix of power pace and skill, many have the latter two, but all three? I think Scolari will provide him with the pscyhological support and reassurance he requires and surpass Jose's influence on Drog's... stay Didier your work here isn't finished.

A sharp contrast between Chelsea/Arsenal fans and Liverpool fans on evolution of their top striker.

Torres is GOD to Pool fans (justifiably so perhaps), but a large % of Arsenal fans don't rate Ade even half as good as Torres. Chelsea fans rate Drogba little higher but I see a quite of few don't think he is worth keeping.

Drogba to me is a monster! he is a big game player! FA cup winner against Man U, his goal in CL semi final against Liverpool, his two goals that brought Chelsea 2-1 win over us(Arsenal) that kept Chelsea in title hunt.

He is one of the mast hacked player IMO. Liverpool and Man U (Vidic, Agger and Cara) never miss chance to knee him from behind.
I am collecting a and editing videos of EPL defender practically rapping the guy and getting away with it; ( I will soon put in Youtube).

I don't blame him for every now and then wanting to leave Chelsea. Getting kicked and hacked by 3rd rate defenders and no protection from refs... who needs it.

true enough, Drogba is hacked time and time again by mucksavages pretending to be footballers. Refs need to be allowed to consult a fourth official for video evidence and protect against these savages and also spot the divers. It will improve the game sort out dodgy offsides and the best teams will win!!!

Deco is getting worried.
Lured to Chelsea to play with the "big stars", now he sees the possibility of Drogba going and Lampard has said he wants to leave, apparently.
Deco says "hey guys, don't leave me in the lurch".

Deco isn't worried he still has Ballack, Essien,
Cech,, Carvalho, and Joe and Ashley Cole . These are all top players not to mention the fact that if Drogs goes Eto is coming in. There are also very good team players throughout the squad and several very good young players in the ranks Kalou and Mikel being the most well known. Deco is far from being left in the lurch my deluded friend, he is simply being supportive of his manager...good for him.

Scholes st was probably Uniteds second best player last season, Drogba played well all season, Deco was Portugals best player, Ballack was Germany's and Senna was Spains during Euro 2008 and these were 3 of the best 5 player in the tournament.
Makalele has been the best defensive midfielder in Britain for four years and he is almost 35. Age is no barrier to success provided the players are fit.

Drogba is good but I would take Villa over him.
