It isn't only me who's saying it (Carlo and a whole host of other media pundits are saying it too) but isn't Didier Drogba's recent form AMAZING?!
Obviously he has always been a key players for us, ever since he played so brilliantly against Manchester United in the first game of the 2004/05 season, causing their centre-backs to have real problems, and sending us on our way to our first title in years, but at the moment he is looking so sharp, quick and clinical that its no wonder Carlo is swooning over him.
"I want to keep him and I wouldn't change him with another striker!" said Chelsea's Italian coach Ancelotti.
In the aftermath of another match in which Didier had led us from the front, and practically scored both goals on his own, Carlo Ancelotti was struggling to think of a better striker. And he will continue to struggle, because Didier is simply the best in the business. He is great in the air (as proven last night), and has the ability to create space for himself, allowing him to make cool finishes rather than erratic swipes at goal.
Who could possibly take his place? Van Persie looks good at Arsenal but is lightweight. United fans bang on about Wayne Rooney, but I have yet to see him grab a game by the scruff of the neck and lead United to victory. Yes he runs hard and tackles, but then so could I!
Yesterday's display of power, pace and finishing has led us to the top of both the Premier League and Champions League groups, and much more is yet to come from our Ivorian hero!
Apologies for the lack of posts recently - I have been suffering from swine flu (I'm sure that will keep a few of you happy!)
Come on you blues!
