UF Quick Throw: No Didier at Southend tonight

The Chelsea fun continues as Drogba gets omitted from the squad, although this smells like one of those media efforts to drum up controversy and intrigue where there isn't any. You know how they do that, right? Was he really going to risk his precious Ivorian body in the chill of a lower-league stadium?

That said, when your manager keeps being so gung-ho about the notion of losing his job, the media doesn't really need the help.

Maybe no game at Southend at all...postponed says Soccernet. But the BBC says the fog is lifting...might be on after all.

Oh, and one other thing. COME ON WIGAN!

"Didier Drogba has been sensationally axed"

Soccernet: quality, class, integrity, and vehemently pro-united

TFA--"No Didier at Southend tonight"...sounds like a lockerroom prank was prevented.

Sad to watch on the DVR. I was all about rooting for the Shrimpers, especially after that beautiful capitulation by Chelsea's defense early on, but knowing the end result doesn't make me want to watch much more. Ugh, I'm calling it off for tonight...
