The Return of Drogba

The Return of Drogba

Is it a case of no smoke without fire?

The drum-roll heralding the anticipated return of a certain Didier Drogba is getting louder and louder.

Numerous news sources are inferring that Jose Mourinho is very keen to bring Didier back to Stamford Bridge and that the Special One feels it is something that could very well happen.

Apparently, Drogba will be offered a one-year playing deal with the option to move into a coaching role next season.

It`s reported that having lost the influence of Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole, Mourinho is looking towards the inspirational qualities that the 36 year-old Ivorian possesses.

However, it should be mentioned that there are other offers on the table from other clubs.

But like I said, is this a case of no smoke without fire?

I agree that the Drog should not be offered a playing contract at CFC.

For sure, he will feature in only 5-10 games this season, maybe a dead rubber in Champions league Group stage or where the Champions league game going to follow with a Difficult League game. Its a good initiative as he is going to move into coaching role and needs to have certain linkup with the squad as well. P.N. : Here the Coach and the management and the board knows better that all of us..!!! So Be happy with what we are getting !

don't be mistaking guys drogba is coming as a back up for our strikers nothing wrong with that, @36 he can still peform well who knows? Look @ pirlo he is still performing good with the confidence he has so if the coach and the board decided to bring him back we should just wait and see. To bamford even if drogba comes he can still have some playing time.

welll i don't fancy the Drog coming back again as a player in any capacity.. However i can't but help think of a scenario when we are chasing a game and the opposition defenders look up and see two changes... Drogba and Lukaku coming in to support Diego Costa upfront.... Is it only me that can see the quaking knees and the " We are fuuucked" comments.... lol....

Agree with THEBREEZE. If we have him as our third striker, we will NOT win the league. Missed a trick not signing Remy. Go for Bony instead of Drogba

@dwonder thats so hilarious,i wonder how pessimistic i'll be about stopping a goal from going if i were to be one of the defender facing those three bullies. But his arrival doesn't have anything to do with bamford though as he will be loaned out again since he is still behind costa,torres and lukaku,how do we then expect him to stay and have playing time.

Drogba has already agreed to return to Chelsea. They are just dotting the i's and crossing the t's on his contract. It is definitely going to happen.

Silly season I know, but this has the ring of truth to it. Could be as an occasional fourth striker, so let's not jump to conclusions about the impact on younger players. He can only be a positive influence. Lukaku for one has a lot to learn from him!

It's a very dicey thing the returning of Drogba to the bridge. The board and jose seems to have struck a lightbulb and more clarification is needed to see what the idea they have up their sleeve is. Until it becomes clearer what the concept is and how our striking department would end up as, i remain on the sideline.

Ideally if we can offload Torres, Drogba would be a good fit for the third striker slot. Lets face it. he would be behind Costa and Lukaku without hankering for starting shirt every time. he can afford to concentrate both Lukaku and Costa on the EPL and CL assault while drogba can help out as the case arises.( injuries or fatigue) he would get to start in some games like the fa and carling cups with Lukaku been second striker and Costa rested for other games. Ideally, we need someone with the mien of Demba Ba but equally deadly when called upon to do the business. Drogba ticks all the boxes. Young Bamford can go on a year loan and come back to take Drogba's spot next year.
