Drogba = Idiot

Drogba = Idiot

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba, famed for admitting live on telly that he is a diver only to later deny what he'd admitted, honestly believes he is better than Thierry Henry.

Drogba has found some decent form this season and his scoring rate is second to none, I even admitted earlier in the season that the Ivory Coast striker has turned his career around after it appeared that his Premier League career would be cut short after his own fans boo'ed him.

However, Drogba has mistaken form for class.

Thierry Henry has unquestionably been the most consistant striker in EUROPE for the past five years, and you don't have to take the word of an extremely biased Gooner, go check the record books, go on, especially you Chelsea fans I know will be visiting.

Drogba leads the Premiership scoring charts with 8 goals compared to Thierry's 6, which, lets face it, is not much of a gap especially as we all know Henry does his best work after the new year.

'I relax when I play football computer games. I have fun playing as Henry and shooting wide of the goal! I'm kidding.' he said.

'It just seems my virtual copy doesn't play as well as the Henry character - although in real life, especially this season, I'm better than him. I hope the game makers take note of my comments and make changes to the computer programme.'

I'm not sure which makes him sound more foolish, him complaining about a computer game (maybe he's just crap at it) or the fact that he thinks he is better than a man who has won more awards for his goal scoring feats, than Drogba has taken dives, which is a massive amount.

The guy is a joke. The very fact that he thinks he is better than Henry calls his sanity into question. Perhaps it's time to up his dosage?

A bit of a silly comment isn't it Merlin? One of your players reckons he's better than Thierry Henry and you think we're not going to comment? What I have noticed however is that you're not exactly rushing to defend him or agree with him. Speaks volumes.

Whilst I have to admit Drogba is on fire at the moment,he has to somehow realise form is temporary,but class is permanent. CLASS=KING TH14!!! 'Nuff said.

Drogba is a better player than Henry. That's why Chelsea beat Arsenal last year by 3/3. Drogba was the hero of these three games that Thierry Henry played and was a shadow of himself. So he is right to say that, as most of Drogba performances are always premiership winning games(Chelsea vs Arsenal, Chelsea vs Liverpool, Chelsea vs Manu). As opposed to that, our TH14 often shy away from these types of games that matter; as against Manu, this current season, he was "sick" when we played Manu. He is "sick" against when we are going to play another difficult game. But interestingly, he will be fit on Wednesday against Fulham. How useful are his goals if constantly he can be sick when Arsenal are to face difficult games that count double in premiership table decider? This is becoming too much regular.

Rocky - He wa sspeaking about a PC game. I wonder if when I select Henry in my XI, it'll come up with a message saying - "Not available for trips to dark Northern towns"

He also ACTUALLY said he was better than Henry THIS SEASON ... any independent fan would probably observe that this has been the case this season

U gotta be kidding right? How can Drogba be anywhere near Henry. He has played world class football for 1/4 of a season in a top league. Please tell me how that rivals Henry who deserved a hat-trick of World player of the year if it wasnt an advertisment for football (r10 smile won the award). Drogba is a clumsy player and doesn't have Henry's finess.

one good start to a season, and this because shevchenko comes along and takes all the heat off drogba, leaving him with more time and space. Henry has been playing, for the past five season, with every defender in the beady gaze of every defender he pays against, being paid THE closest attention in every game, yet still comes away as the top scorer in the prem. This is what drogb must do. If he can do it ifor the next 4 years,consistently, then we'll talk about him in the same breathe as a footballing great such as henry. If not, he'll be the chelsea clive allen. »»Arsene Knows««

Actually Sir Harry he said 'Especially' this season, which means he thinks he was better thn him before and even more so this year. And Vitdanet you are also judging Henry v Drogba and the basis of three games, thats just not right, if he can comeback in three years and he's kept his scoring rate up he might have an argument, but as it stands at the moment, he's just being a little bit thick.
