Will Drogba Cut the Mustard?
Back at Stamford Bridge, for a second spell, it`ll be interesting to see if Didier Drogba can hit anywhere near the form he displayed in his first spell.
Will Drogba`s presence put the fear of god into the hearts of Premier league defences, will he continue to score crucial goals in big games and, more importantly, will he have Arsene Wenger running for the hills as he demolishes the Arsenal defence in his usual fashion?
Back in training it would appear that Jose Mourinho has no qualms about bringing the 36 year-old Ivorian back to Stamford Bridge with the gaffer remarking about the legend that is Didier,
"Didier still has the technique to score and his physical strength and presence is still the same."
"Mentally he is unchanged. Every training exercise, his desire to compete and to win is always there. He will be important for us."
So the omens look good but I suppose the acid test will come when he first steps onto the pitch in a competitive Premier League game.
What is your opinion, will Didier cut the mustard and how many games do you see the ageing striker starting?
Your thoughts would be most welcome.
