Today ah get in a heated argument with a man about this subject. He was convinced that Drogba was that person. You could tell he was a Chelsea man because he just wasn't hearing it and the brother was going down with he Drogba hook and sinker, With the likes of men like Eto, Adebayor and Amr Zaki Yuh just cah put the crown on Drogba head just so. Ah feel Eto wearing that crown with ease. Ah hope is just not me who feel that way. Ah doh mind putting him a lil second behind Samuel presently

Reticent to admit it...but I have to give it to Drobga right now. Eto'o have a more level head though.

If I had to choose one of those guys to put on my team, I'd say Eto...I have much respect for both players but I think Eto has more skill, is clever and is a better goal scorer plus he can create opportunities for others around him.

When you drop 7 and 8 men behind the ball and two and three men putting pressure the ball i ain't sure how much men could deal with that nah. So its fair to say that we cah just judge men on that one game. In the same breath I ain't feel Eto missing some of them opportunities Drogba get in that game. But then its just how I feel

Eto'o...

Drogba too inconsistent... a product of his temperamentality.  When he wants to he can be on top of his game, however when the focus isn't there and he'd rather engage in 'gamesmanship' looking for whistles he can be a detriment to his team... as he was yesterday.  He ultimately said it best "ees ah deesgwayce... ees ah f**king deesgwayce".


Zaki and Adebayor ent ready in my book... particularly Zaki.  Adebayor sandwiches moments of brilliance in between extended periods of mediorcrity... but I still think he's on the cusp of superstardom.

After Drogba and Eto'o, Frederik Kanoute is the best African striker at the moment. Obafemi Martins better than Zaki, and Adebayor anyhow..he just need to get out of newcastle...

Cyah go wrong with either Eto'o or Drogba....

But I'll give Drogba the crown.  Watching Drogba play for the Ivory Coast (WC '06) revealed how much more complete of a player he is for his nat'l team than he is for Chelsea... He drops alot deeper and actually distributes the ball in his role for the IC (at least last WC)...When he's on his game he's a freak of nature.  Other than his diving he's a coach's dream. 

Adebayor third.

Outside of striker Christian Romaric (Sevilla) is one of the better African talents I've seen in recent years.

While I agree with Kicker as far as Drogba's contribution to his National Team is concerned, (he is practically a GOD in IC and on that team.  All the players look up to him!) I also have to agree with what a couple other posters said about him as far as his club football is concerned and most of these guys play more club than international football.  He spends too much time for me being DDQ than Didier Drogba, football player.  Eto'o may have a bad game or two and look completely out of it (like he did this rounds against Chelsea) but otherwise, his work rate, skill and finishing puts him ahead of Drogba in my book.

Voting on the FIFA website has Eto'o ahead by a significant margin ... 42.39% of the tally. Talk done? And the winner is Eto'o?

Zaki and Drogba are neck and neck ...

I'm angling to see dem live in Angola.

i think drogba at his best better than eto at his best.

but eto much more level-headed and consistent and really doesn't involve himself in the histrionics drogba does. and drogba's antics does affect his play at times - e.g. CL final last year, earlier this season under scolari etc.

if i have a team, i prefer eto on it than drogba.

Yeah boy forgot about Kanoute, but I'm not sure he's all that much better than Adebayor though.  Adebayor had a stop start season this season because of injuries but on his day he's as good as FK in my opinion....As for Martins, it's tough to tell with him playing for a struggling squad....couple times I've seen him this season, he still has his qualities of speed, agility and work rate, but he looked to have left his scoring boots at home...

Interesting question between ETO and Drogba I guess the only thing you have to choose between is the
stats but even that is strange because Eto played more games for varying reasons and its two different leagues
In a big game and from an emotional standpoint Drogba can be detrimental  ...Eto may be a lil more consistent not too much to choose between these two ...just a matter of personal preference for their styles ..... darkhorse for me is Martins from Newcastle ....personally I think he is more talented than both but a bit handicapped by his unfortunate team so I can't rate him as the best (although potentially he can be).
