Drogba`s Swan Song?

Drogba`s Swan Song?

Against Blackburn, Drogba came on as a sub today for young Lukaku, who was having himself a good game I'm pleased to write.

But the sub itself was noteworthy for a reason that I'm sure is obvious to all of you: in all likelihood, it was a final goodbye gesture from arguably our greatest striker ever at Chelsea.

I don`t want to be too presumptuous, but the idea of no Drogba next season—well, I'm really sad about it.

Drogba's age and the presence of Torres give ammunition to those who want him gone. I'm not interested in starting that debate because there`s really nothing to add that hasn`t already been expressed ten times over.

I simply want to applaud Drogba for an absolutely unbelievable Chelsea career.

Watching him play over the years has brought me great joy.

It has been a privilege, Didier!

If he is to leave it will be very sad it was a privilege to have Drogba play for us.

I hoped he'd retire at the Bridge. Nothing more, nothing less to say than this : L.E.G.E.N.D.

Think @Mq might be happy to see the back of him, but I think he's proved this season that he can still cut it at the highest level. If its your last game at the bridge then good luck on the final part of your playing career. As FrLamp said L.E.G.E.N.D

I'll really miss his Wembley goals, his goals against Arsenal and more and more of those important goals he's scored for us. I'll also miss the time-wasting and bullying of opposition defences. LEGEND. You will be really missed. I want to see him sign off with a bang by scoring in the UCL final.

Drogba will always be remembered, if he is leaving in the summer, I hope he goes out with a bang, helping us to the Champions League. Go Drogba!

The Champions League gold medal will be a fitting high-point for Drogba's career. He deserves nothing less especially in view of previous heartaches and controversies in the Champions League. Hope that negotiations between the club and him will result in an extension to his contract.

I've got nothing to add, everyone has covered it. What a man, what a player, what a legend. The best striker we've ever had, the spearhead and cornerstone behind all our success under abramovich, now let's send him out with the biggest prize of them all next week. God bless you didier drogba, should this indeed be your final hour in a Chelsea all I can say is thank you with all my heart.

It will be a painful goodbye really, will always remember his screamer against everton and tottenham that was really unbelievable goal. Really hope we win in Munich to give him a very grateful goodbye for what he has done for Chelsea (if he truly leaving)

If Henry gets a statue at the Emirates, I can't fathom why Drogba shouldn't have one at SB!

What a complete stupidity it would be to let Drogba go. He should get a one year extension right now! He's still got it and with Torres still in bad form it is very risky. He's a big game player and a true legend.
