Cork Relishing Chelsea Return

Cork Relishing Chelsea Return

Jack Cork has said he's delighted he now has the chance to face Chelsea having spent over a decade at the club as a lad.

Speaking to saintsfc ahead of the FA Cup tie, Cork said.

'I'm just looking forward to playing against them really as I never got the opportunity to play with them whilst I was there. I'd love to play, it's a shame it's not at Stamford Bridge, hopefully the gaffer will pick me.'

Cork has no real regrets from his time at Chelsea and harbours no ill will despite not making a competitive appearance, he just looks on it as a very good place for him to have learnt and developed given the players who surrounded him on the training pitch.

'One of the main things that sticks in my head was Didier Drogba pulling me aside and giving me advice on how to play against him and bigger players, so just having people around like that who have done so much in the game was great and has been invaluable to me. They're players you can look up to as great professionals so it was good to be in and around them.'

Talking about Drogba in that way shows great respect for him, but also shows how influential senior players can be to youngsters learning their trade.

It is quite possible that Demba Ba could make his first start for the blues.

Cycle isn't it, passing down the knowledge and experience, and in turn then passing it on to youngsters when you are considered the senior.

Rafa has confirmed I believe that if the paperwork all goes through, Ba will be in the squad at least from what I've just read. Hopefully it'll be a debut to remember for all the wrong reasons if he does start.

They'll be out for a response that's for sure, but I can't believe how Rafa changed the team around for QPR Too cocky or a sign of how seriously he's taking the Cup?

If not sure he's that popular anyway given how Vital Chelsea welcomed him to the club :-)

Didn't help with the comments he made about Chelsea while at Liverpool. Perhaps we could help our friendly Blues fans get rid of him by winning. Or is that asking for too much. :)

Going back to Jack I hope he plays a blinder against his old club.

He ain't gonna be able to do it on his own so hoping whoever gets the nod steps up to the plate for us. Maybe a special from would cheer us all up.
