Drogba lends dose of reality and goals to Premier League opening

I love the opening day of the PREMIER LEAGUE season.
It's like opening day for baseball -- at least for a short while, every club has the possibility of being champions.

BLACKPOOL supporters must have had that impression, after Marlon Harewood scored twice as the Tangerines opened their Premier League account with a 4-0 away thrashing of Wigan.

Later, Jill, the girls and I watched live on television as reality set in quickly: CHELSEA 6-0 WEST BROMWICH ALBION.

West Brom might be the top-flight's poor relations, but Chelsea certainly looked like champions fully capable of repeating the feat.

Didier Drogba scored a hat trick and Florent Malouda added a pair of goals to light up Stamford Bridge.

So, after the first day, a familiar name sits atop the standings -- Chelsea.

There's still some romance, though, thanks to Blackpool, the thoroughly unfamiliar name in second.

I predict Drogba will be the highest scorer this season meanwhile Rooney will have a 'mare.
