Re: Drogba scored double figures and won the league in his first season. nt
Ten league goals in his first season was hardly the influence and prolific sort of return he'd offer in the following seasons though, was it?
And it wasn't just his goals return in season one, he also frequently looked as though he was struggling to find his role in the team.
Impossible to say without the benefit of an extended stay at the club. I guess we'll never know.
That said,the Premier League has certainly seen some high profile players miss the mark in season one then go on to much better things in subsequent seasons once they'd adjusted: Didier Drogba being a prime example.
Exactly. The English game was too fast and too physical for him. He could have been here 3 seasons and he would never have found his place at Everton or any other English club
I can't think of an English team where he'd have been effective and up to the task.
