So basically Lamps is only negotiating joining them in 2015. I knew there was something wrong with the reports of him leaving immediately.

Yeah same with David Villa. Reports say he'll train with Man City in the meantime. Lampard will probably do the same with us

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.

And it's not that he was a mere squad player last season. He had 40 appearances, scored 8 goals, 7 assists. Not too bad stats for a a 35 year old playing in DM. At least better than paulinho. I am sure he will have a role to play, if he stays.

Nyfc is man city.

Correction..Nyfc share the same owners..its not like he's pulling on their sky blue jersey, although if it makes you happy there are rumors about him playing for City for a few months before heading to the US

Most of his appearances were in the first leg of the season, but he was dropped in the 2nd leg, when Mourinho realized he was far from a good player in the pivot. He ended the season behind Luiz in the picking order to play in the mid. Imo in he ended the season as a mere squad player.

I'd give him half a season give him a proper send off. He's going to the World Cup as England vice-captain after all, he's not quite on the scrap heap yet. When you see who's interested in him and Cole, it makes the decision to part company look even more questionable.

"An alternative would be to join Harry Redknapp at newly promoted Queens Park Rangers on a similar half-season arrangement."

I must admit I'm disappointed, I expected by now at least one media outlet to say that the real reason Frank has rejected a contract renewal is because of the imminent arrival of Fabregas...

Give it time, I'm sure that's exactly what the Daily Mail is about to write up :lol:

get it over with. move on. no more. don't need him next season; CFC need to move on.

only reason he gets in England this year is his outlook/experience, leadership, and for someone who can knock a goal in with 10-15 minutes left as a sub. But Paul Scholes is correct on the England squad: none of them can play the Gerrard role if Steven gets hurt, so why was it not Carrick instead of Lampard in there? Guess it would be Henderson.

Huddlestone would've been a better choice than Milner, but yeah generally agree for the majority of this.

Pretty amazing how Carrick went form hero to zero ins one single year. Last season when utd were doing well he was the master mind behind it all and was nominated for PFA player of the year, this season when the team is struggling and Moyes tactics left him isolated in midfield, he doesn't even get picked in the squad. The life of a defensive midfielder, I guess...

With Villa signing, New York City looks serious to throw the money as well as strengthen their team. I would not be surprised if Lampard or Cole join them.

Dont forget the agents role in this. Its probably the agent trying to get the best (and you cant blame him) and most money out of the club for his client.

JT took the offer, Cole did not, Lampard may or may not - But the club's approach is entirely sensible to me.

What makes less sense is why they didn't sort this all out in January and therefore have a conclusion before the end of the season where we all knew where we stood.
