    I heard he has won some championships and awards, but he nearly 40 years old. Hopefully he can still keep it up?

    His best days are long gone - was very very good at Chelsea, but can drop like a sack of potatoes at the slightest breeze from a defender. Played in China for a bit - so his bank balance is healthy. Since the MSL is a European retirement league - I would consider this move being put out to pasture. The only other couple of players more annoying are Joey Barton and Nicolas Anelka - who are both talented but total pratts. The latter no longer plays, the former is annoying Burnley fans at the moment after screwing up at Rangers (Glasgow). However, I digress - Drogbas move is akin to being a player/manager in League Two in Scotland or there abouts :)

    This.

    Football in North America has always been a place where foreign stars come to spend their final years.

    Pelé. Beckham. Drogba

    There are some great players from OS playing - including the Wright-Phillips brothers , I just don't see Drogba as an Ambassador for the game, in the same way as a Gerrard or a Lampard type of personality.... but who am I to know being just another opinionated aging football fan. :)

    Beside Drogba and Omar Bravo, Phoenix Rising FC does have one of the brothers playing for the team Shaun Wright-Phillips.

    Official: Didier Drogba joins Shaun Wright-Phillips at Phoenix Rising FC - Once A Metro

    I don't know anything about these players, but I guess I should at least check out one Phoenix Rising game as long the weather is still nice.

    For those who came in late:

    Mario


    Interesting to see his value roller-coaster, and his contract is up at the end of June. Give the man a t-shirt deal and he is yours. :)

    I would go to see Shaun play - he is one of the players that fits into the "play until I drop" class - or was the last time I saw him play. He was good a Man. City - but went off the pace a bit for EPL
