To celebrate Didier Drogba scoring 100 goals for Chelsea, the club have nominated today as DROGBA DAY!
What this basically means is that Chelsea TV will spend tonight celebrating Drogba’s time at Chelsea. There will be a showing of ALL of his first 100 goals (he now has 102), and various other shows from his time at the Bridge.
Drogba now stands in 9th in the all-time Chelsea scoring lists, but is still 33 goals behind Frank Lampard in fifth, and a whole 100 behind Bobby Tambling. To be fair to Drogba, Tambling played around double the games that Drogba has reached so far.
The Full list of the Chelsea “100 club”
Bobby Tambling 202 goals, 366+4 games
Kerry Dixon 193 goals, 413+7 games
Roy Bentley 150 goals, 367 games
Peter Osgood 150 goals, 376+4 games
Frank Lampard 135 goals, 418+23 games
Jimmy Greaves 132 goals, 169 games
George Mills 125 goals, 239 games
George Hilsdon 107 goals, 164 games
Didier Drogba 102 goals, 182+45 games
The main event of the evening on Chelsea TV will be a phone-in where fans can put questions direct to Didier from 7.15 pm, followed by all the goals and shows.
If you don’t want to phone in, you can email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Did you know that Drogba has scored more goals against Arsenal than any other team? He has scored eight in five matches, and Chelsea has won every time he scored!
The only other team that comes close is Liverpool, who has conceded seven goals from Drogba. But we do play Liverpool more often than any other team!
