I never understand why people in England hate Lampard so much(beside Chelsea fans off course), is it just because he was never

good in the national team like he is in Chelsea, and becuase he's a Chelsea player? or there is something else?

It’s actually worse than I thought.. Drogba wrote ‘Blue Till I die’ on the dressing room white board and left the country, Ashley Cole rejected Liverpool and left the country. Frank Lampard, the man

He looks like a muppet now. Not winning anything at City while tarnishing his status over here and making New York fans angry. Well that was some decision Frankie.

Genuinely can't believe people are defending him going to our direct rivals for the league. He's going there to train? Yeah because he can't run in America right.

^ I never got it either. It's ridiculous because he's a model pro on and off the pitch. They just love Stevie Me so much and can't admit that even though Lamps has never been the same for England, he has always overshadowed Gerrard who has been shit all along yet no one says anything. Plus during Jose's time, everything related to Chelsea was viewed with complete hatred so that didn't help him

I could not care less about nationality.

It's different for the English fans, it means more to them to see an English player playing for the team, it means alot for the team as well. Just look at the English back bone we had in 04/05.

I think that goes for any nationality not just English.....

But those who want to see a better game, and don't care about such silly things, would look past this.

I love the sport first before a club, or national team. So as fan of this sport, i want to see better game all the time.

I was speaking from the point that he is from America but he's a Chelsea fan. But of course we wouldn't choose a player to be in the team just because he's English if we have a better foreign player in the same position. That would be stupid.

Lamps time maybe drawing near, but its ridiculous to doubt his commitment to the team and its cause...

Quote:

" It was the first time in eight years that Lampard found himself fit but not selected for a Premier League game as Chelsea brushed aside Swansea.

Reports Lampard stormed away early after failing to come off the bench were wide of the mark.

He spent more than half an hour after the game warming down on the pitch and came back drenched in sweat.

Most of his team-mates were already showered and heading for home. "

Rest of the article

Too much is being made of him not starting against Swansea, he is a 33 year old man who had to play 120 minutes just a few days before the game, I'm sure even he knew he should have not started.

If anything being subbed at OT after 45 minutes was infinitely more revealing about his place in the team rather than some random start about him not missing a PL game since 2003.

You're right, but apparently he was seen walking down the tunnel after the final sub was made. It led to media prompting headlines such as "Lampard future in doubt" ect.

he didn't play 120 minutes, but otherwise you're right

I don't believe in any media saying Lampard stormed off, he wouldnt do that. He's a smart, he knows that he cant play as much as he used to.

He may not have "stormed off", but he certainly left for the tunnel.

Hes done nothing now for 2 years, about time someone noticed

The reason nobody has noticed is that it's bollocks.

2009 2010

51 appearances

27 goals

2010 2011

32 appearances

13 goals

Compare that with Stevie Gerrard

2009 2010

49 appearances

12 goals

2010 2011

24 appearances

8 goals

So who has done nothing for two years?

Keep the faith in Franky ;) Good performance, nice goal. He got rested and dropped and immediately upped his game in my estimation. Hadn't scored for a while from open play, so that goal should do wonders to his confidence (apart from Torres, I felt Lamps was/is low on confidence too).

That FK was also nice. It's been quite some time I've seen him shoot at goal from a fk :P

Super Frank! :)

This is because of Drogba and i feel Drogba has more to offer free kick wise as he has a better technique than Frank , i think Frank just goes for power and hopes for the best sometime. Fantastic to see him score though. Still has his part to play this season.
