There's none so blind as those who cannot see...

What is it with some of our so called 'experts' that they cannot see quality when it's smacking them in the face?

I'm referring to Drogba and Cristiano Ronaldo. Drogba has been the subject of intense scrutiny ever since he arrived in West London, and quite right too given the fee. But I've never understood how people like Andy Gray and even some Chelsea fans cannot see what a great player Drogba is. I'm not referring to just this season, because he's impressed me more or less every time I've seen him play.

Jose Mourinho doesn't often make mistakes where it concerns big players, and make no mistake for Jose, Drogba is a very big player. The 'experts' told us 'all that Chelsea needed was a goal scorer'.... enter Shevchenko - only to be outscored by the big man from the Ivory Coast, the Ukrainian star has been largely in his shadow.

And what about Cristiano Ronaldo, even some United fans wanted him out this summer, following the media witch-hunt. What do they think now following his performances this season? Some United fans are never happy.

It remains to be seen what lies ahead for both players. Many in the media are taking the revisionist view, praising both stars, while at the time trying to justify these revised opinions... Drogba has been called a cheat for diving and rolling around on the deck, 'doesn't Johnny foreigner know we don't do it like that over here?'..

Drogba has a long way to go to catch up with 'Lee Won Pen' (AKA Francis Lee - king of the bog rolls) formerly of Manchester City. In '71/'72 Lee scored a record 15 penalties, most them earned by himself!

IT's a pity the fans cannot pass judgement on the hacks. No need for revisionism here, most of them haven't got a clue!
