Van Persie, Torres, Drogba... Who are you picking in their prime? 🤔

Van Persie, Torres, Drogba…

Who are you picking in their prime? :thinking:


Prime Torres was unstoppable. Vidic was the best CB in the league at the time and Torres had him on toast.


Drogba all day long! Knew how to hold the ball and if couldn’t he somehow get a free kick :foot: and if that wasn’t enough, scored some absolute blinders.


All three players were incredible strikers in their prime, but their styles and careers took different paths. Here’s a brief comparison:

  • Robin van Persie (2004-2013): A technically gifted, creative striker with exceptional dribbling, vision, and finishing ability. He was Arsenal’s talisman and led the team to several top-four finishes.

  • Fernando Torres (2007-2011): A lightning-fast, clinical striker with incredible movement and finishing skills. He formed a deadly partnership with Steven Gerrard at Liverpool and nearly won the Premier League in 2009.

  • Didier Drogba (2007-2012): A powerful, dominant striker with exceptional strength, hold-up play, and finishing ability. He was Chelsea’s go-to man in big games and won numerous titles, including the Champions League in 2012.

It’s difficult to pick just one, but if I had to choose, I’d say Didier Drogba was the best in his prime. His impressive trophy haul, clutch performances, and dominance in the Premier League and Champions League make a strong case. However, this is a subjective opinion, and each player has their own unique strengths and achievements.
