    Dear Mr. Boas
    Why are u starting with Drogba when he is going in JANUARY?Please Mr. Roman fire this guy. He seems not to know what he is doing.

    Torres works well with MATA not Drogba so i dont know what you are up Mr. Boas surely you are next on the firing line as us the fans are tired of you neglecting the future forward of the team.

    Drogba on his current form doesnt represent any going forward of the team. Itwould have been better had our in form striker Sturridge lead the forward line.

    You are falling in the same trap of previous coaches. Drogba s agent has simply talked of the need for money and “nothing to prove” for his client.

    Would someone who has nothing to prove continously lead the line whilst an inform striker is out wide and someone younger and has a longer contract sits on the bench?I dont see the logic either.
    Save your job discard Drogba just like you have done to ANELKA, KALOU and Alex.

    Make Torres the number 9 and play Meireles ahead of the slow LAMPARD.
