Who ever comes in is walking into a pile of shit anyway. 

Lost out best player 

Striker options are awful. 

Apart from Kante our midfield is very suspect. 

Back 4 aint too bad but does need improving. 

Theoretically it would be great to accept the state the club are in and use the ban as an opportunity to play a lot of the young players we have at the club and out on loan last season. We could build from there but I dont think Roman has the patience to wait 2,3,4 years until a new team is built and ready to challenge again. 

Although I hate them but you have to admire Liverpool for putting faith in Klopp. Look at the team he has built now and they play his style of play. Fair enough liverpool haven't won a league since the dark ages but maybe Roman needs to accept we arent anywhere near what we were. 

Miles away from catching City in the last few seasons. We haven't been competitive in the CL since our 2014 semi final exit. 

Throwing money around to get a good player in and expecting the manager to fit them in the team does not work most of the time. 

If you look at how good City are and the players they have, it really does show how far away we are from challenging. 

City, Liverpool, Arsenal, United, Spurs all could potentially strengthen this season. 

And I'm going to say it...

 

The only person I could see us getting who could grind us out a top 4 finish is Jose. It wouldn't be pretty though.

When Frank comes, he should have a clause that he can come on for the last 10 minutes for late runs in the box to score a classic Lampard winner

Brilliant mate :)

Nobody predict doom and gloom. I only explain what happen to Ole, and i can see similar thingwith lamp if we are going through rough patch because it will happen and in United case Ole is always blameless. 

Is there really a difference? You practically still predicted a difficult situation that may or may not happen.

For me, I don't get with Chelsea fans who want Lamp to manage us next season. He is a loved Chelsea legend, he can be our manager anytime he want. It is better for him to develop more as a manager and for us to have better squad where he can have better chance to be successful. 

Lampard is a riskier appointment than most at this point but at the same, he offers something new, fresh and brings a different level excitement, intrigue. If we were to go with one of the other managers mentioned - Allegri, Blanc, Gracia etc - it would feel like more of the same. Said it previously, we have gone with more experienced/successful managers in the past and gotten nowhere with it. Maybe going with someone up-and-coming, someone with fresh ideas might just be the thing that will help move us forward.

Plus, given the nature of this job, does Lampard really have much to lose? Past managers have come and gone and still gotten jobs elsewhere. If Lampard doesn't do well, he can point to the difficult circumstances. If he does well, it will only enhance his reputation. Obviously, we're in a difficult situation right now but since when has Lampard not loved a challenge and proved people wrong?

Also, success doesn't have to be about winning trophies all the time. With our current situation, if Lampard can rebuild the squad, integrate young players, lay the foundation for the future, then I think he would have done more than good and be considered a success. If we have to take a step back and suffer to take two-three steps forward, then so be it. It's about F time we press the reset button rather than trying to patch things up with a band-aid and play along without actually going in any direction.

Yep, and he knows well all the players more than anyone else. The promised will be, if we get a decent result, he got the full backup next season. Sadly, it is only daydreaming. 

I'm blue, so even if Kermit the Frog will be our manager, I will still support this club. So welcome, Chelsea Legend Lampard.

Derby remain adamant they have had no approach from Chelsea for Frank Lampard. 

“We have made it very clear to everyone - but most importantly to Frank himself - that we want to retain him at the club for the long term," said Derby owner Mel Morris.

"If Chelsea want to hire Frank, then it is in their gift to make an offer in pursuit of that. In the meantime, we will continue to put our best foot forward to continue with our plans for the coming season.

"We will work closely with Frank in that regard so that he knows how much he is wanted by everyone associated with the club.”

So it looks like Chelsea are not 100% sure on Lampard. They could be still looking at over coaches. Which is good.

But it's weird, they let Sarri go without confirming a replacement.

Why do people still believe every thing that is written in the media. :dunno:

I am sure the club has the replacement down who would join us at the apt time so that he does not need to miss any pre-season days with the players.

Just because we haven't made the approach, doesn't mean we aren't 100% sure on Lampard. Lots of reports stated we'll make the move this week. And besides, we just like to take our own sweet time...

Yes it does. They haven't approached Derby at all, and it kind of shows some disrespect to Derby as they need to know ASAP that if Lampard's going or not, otherwise this will disrupt their next season plans.

When was the last time the board did something in an efficient manner? They were likely sorting out the situation with Sarri and Juventus in past weeks and now that he's confirmed gone, they can move on to securing his replacement.

Conte was still our coach when we were dealing with Sarri. Conte was sacked, then a day later Sarri was appointed.

Chelsea haven't even approached Derby yet, and what if Derby and Chelsea have a spit over?

The board knew they were going to sack Conte back then and it's only the disagreement over the payout that dragged on till July. So it's obvious that they had needed to go for a replacement. Different case with Sarri, who the board didn't mind keeping but also willing to let go as long as Juventus pay up the compensation, which of course they did. Would have been awkward if Sarri to Juventus suddenly didn't happen and we still had a manager while busy chasing for a new one.

Unless Marina decides to go all stingy (again) with the compensation, it should be straightforward considering it will cost only £4 million to get Lampard and that's £1 million less than what we reportedly received from Juventus for Sarri.

Face to face? Is Roman flying over to the UK?

It takes no time atall to fly almost anywhere round Europe. They could easily meet in say Barcelona and Frank could be back home for tea time.
