Frank Lampard

So you join their direct rival? This isn't a fucking factory job, it comes with responsiblity, the emotion, the fans, and the professionalism that it entails.

As Zola said, the players move on, the board moves on, even the stadiums move on, but the fans are a constant, and you don't lose that responsibility when your contract breaks. Lamps did just that, he took the memories the Chelsea fans had of him, and pissed on them, and is now causing death by a thousand cuts just to rub salt in the wound.

He never even signed a contract with NYCFC, it was a transfer to City dressed up to decieve the fans that he 'had no other choice' and that's how it got through the PL board so he could play in the Sunderland game.

Face it, we may have retired him, but he's decided himself to set up our own hanging.

I highly doubt after this that Frank will come back and coach now. Didier for sure. Terry for sure. I'm sure if the time came for Cole we would do the same for him too. But after what Frank has done to us? I'd be against it.

Well this is life in the 'big world' - he's no longer here and we let him go.

You can be childish about it or mature - your choice.

But I won't turn my back on one of our greatest ever players and I know many fans who also won't - thankfully

Let's stay classy as Ron Jeremy says :)

Not really, footballers are in a different stratosphere to real world employees, there isn't 45k seater stadia around fryers at Burger King.

Lampard profited commercially from the legend status we gave him, he never shied away, it was part of his identity. When you are regarded in such a way, you'd expect a well balanced person to have a moral compass and leave with class like Didier & Ash.

Manuel Pellegrini has suggested Frank Lampard could extend his stay at Manchester City beyond this season after the player’s precise status with the Premier League champions was thrown into confusion and he came under fire from supporters of New York City “outraged” by his decision not to join the Major League Soccer club, as agreed, in the new year.

Haha people call us fans bitter but Lampard is probably the most bitter individual of all. We didn't give him his £200k per week to sit on the bench, so he wants to win the title for City at our expense and will inevitably stay on next season if that's what is required.

Now that Gerrard is leaving wouldn't it be funny if Lampard still plays for City next season somehow and we get Gerrard on loan? That would be epic mega LOL... :ph34r:

Turning his back on New York is surely over the line, fans there have bought season tickets to see him play for goodness sake! I think beating City to the title will be even more rewarding, just hope the team rallies and stop messing up at the back!

Can't say I'm not hugely annoyed by him scoring important goals for them, sickening actually. Though I think some here are still acting like sensitive teenage girls, would hate to see them betrayed in real life.

Was told by a visiting friend from London that the home fans in general still love and support him. But that was before the loan extension, not sure about now.

He don't had respect for the fans and for this team, going to the direct rival for the league, and don't hurt him score goals that complicate the way for us. So we don't should have respect or empathy for him.


You can go to Hell, Judas.

Honestly, every time Lampard scores for City, it's like a stab to the heart. Three of his five league goals for them this season have got them 5 extra points, FIVE! :doh:

and one of them also took 2 points from us, 7 points won for City just from Lamps. He is a disgrace.

1 vs us. 2 vs Leicester. 2 vs Sunderland. 5.

@Jason Actually Niclas is kinda right. Lampard's goal vs us gave City a point while taking 2 off of us. Lampard's goal cost us 3 points gap wise with City.

So without Lampard's goals there would have been a 7 point gap now between us and City.

Once again Mourinho decided to let the player go saying he wasn't good enough for the team enough. Lampard decided to go to City to show Mou a lesson and did. Whose fault is this again?

The person who let a world class midfielder go on a free. That's who.

And when did Jose say this? Or by not offering him a new contract he said this? Your assuming, right?

Gerrard leaving Liverpool, said he won't go to a rival. Class act. Loves HIS club.

Cheers Frank.

Ok - none of us actually know what was said between Frank and Chelsea - chances are we never will.

My view - and just my view - is along the lines of - Frank we don't think you are worth what you are asking, you are free to move on.

So, I put myself in Franks position - I FEEL (important part) like I have just been shafted by the one club I gave my playing career to, put my body on the line and gave everything and this is my reward!

So yeah - he's going to go out and prove it was wrong to write him off - and guess what - it WAS!

Loyalty is a two way street. Whilst he was at the club he was a top bloke and let's not bring 'private education' into things - my wife was privately educated, whilst I wasn't - does that make her some kind of untrustworthy / classless person? No - she was lucky enough to be born into a family where her Dad started with nothing, built a business and wanted to invest in his children - so that has nothing to do with it!

I do find some of these arguments borderline pathetic and sensationalist

We let Frank go, we fucked up and we are now reaping what we have sown. There's a fucking useful life lesson right there !!! I, for one will be less quick to write people off in the future as a result of this.

As for 'Class' etc - If Drogba had knocked us out when playing for Gala - would it all be fine? I seriously doubt it with the 'fickle' loyalty and respect being shown here.

I've said all I'm going to say - you guys have your opinion, I have mine - I won't convince you to change it and vice-versa.

Cheers :)

Pretty much my sentiments - I just think he must be pretty bitter as well. He must know the divisions hes causing within Chelsea fans, and just highlights how its only fans in the main that have loyalty. To the employees of the clubs/brands its just corporate business and nothing else.
