Drogba has been a fine player for Chelsea since he signed in 2004, but the time is right for him to move on. Chelsea MUST start thinking of the future, not cling to the past. Drogba represents the past and the present but not the future. I'm not talking the next season or two but over a longer period. The future should mean in five years time or more not in the next two years. Chelsea desperately need freshening up. They WERE the best side in England from 2005 to 2008, but since then United have caught up and overtaken Chelsea. Chelsea therefore need to grab some initiative and respond to the gauntlet United have thrown down at their feet - by buying not just more players but YOUNGER players. Chelsea need to plant the seeds of a new side, they need to show faith in their existing youngsters by calling them all back instead of loaning them out, but they must also buy more young players......players like Neymar, Falcao who represent what Chelsea should see as potential stars of the future. The side also needs an injection of pace and some 'zip' which has been lost over the last three years. Chelsea must respond to United's current dominance otherwise next season will just be a procession for United - and this is boring for everyone else. No one likes an uncompetitive league where there's one team head and shoulders above the rest.......that's why last season was vintage (yes, really). People remember a season when two or three clubs went to the wire, they quickly forget (unless they are fans of said club) a season where one team stays at the top after christmas, until the end of the season. Roman now needs to put his money where his mouth is and close the gap that has begun to open up between Chelsea and United. Drogba also probably needs a new challenge as he has nothing to prove to Chelsea fans - he is already among the greatest strikers to have played for the club.
