Sometimes you just come across something in the media that leaves you exasperated.

Today, lurking in the pages of the Telegraph, is a strange insinuation relating to our midfielder Danny Drinkwater.

Drinkwater, now 28-years-of-age, has yet to feature in any of Chelsea’s matchday squads this season, seemingly totally out-of-favour.

The common conception is that, come the January transfer window, Drinkwater would be looking to move on.

However, according to our source, that isn’t the case.

Apparently, Drinkwater is in no rush to quit Chelsea, seemingly quite content to see how his situation unravels, obviously hoping that something will change, and he can edge ahead of Loftus-Cheek and Barkley in the pecking order.

Now, I find that strange.

Whilst it must be a wrench for anyone to leave our fine club, I’d have thought that the chance to play football on a regular basis was the reasoning for being a professional footballer.

I sincerely hope I’m wrong, but I’m beginning to get a few of those Winston Bogarde vibes when it comes to Drinkwater.

How about you?

  • In the last couple of decades, when a player has won all he’s likely to win, the objective in the latter years of a football career is probably to make as much money as possible. What incentive is there for Drinkwater to leave? He’s not good enough to be on a trophy winning team so why would he take a pay cut and go to a lesser team?
