So, Didier Drogba has finally undergone surgery on that nagging groin injury of his and it means he’ll be out for three weeks. Fan-bloody-tastic.
I mean, we can cope without Benayoun seeing as we’ve never had him anyway. We can probably just about cope without Alex although having Cech out given the way Turnball played the other night is a bit scary. But Drogba missing the start of the season as well? It doesn’t exactly sit comfortably does it?
And I think what irritates me more than anything is why he didn’t have this op sooner. Why not straight after the World Cup? Why would the club let it be delayed til now when it means he’ll definitely miss the Charity Shield, against United and won’t be available for our opener against West Brom?
Does it make any sense that the club clearly knew we’d be letting players go, they also knew with our players getting ever-older they’d have to factor in injuries and then they let our main striker hang about for an op ahead of the new season.
Anyone think they’ve got something else up their sleeve in the transfer market?
