Sorry for my english :clown:

Your English is fine! Lampard gets too much stick on this forum. He was one of our best players last season and the team clearly missed his presence when he didn't play. He is not going to be around forever, but he is still one of Chelsea's key players (and the best player in Chelsea history).

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.

His contract expires this season, no?

Time to let him go, I think. Finish off his career with a lol about America/Qatar/UAE/China.

Hell No, he wants to end his career here, let him end is career here, even in 2 years time providing he keeps fit which he will, he is still a great player for the last 10 mins of a game.... IMO, Lampard is still a great player and his criticism comes due to his age. He hasn't shown anything to make me think he isn't still one of our best midfielders and the man with a lot of experience, especially compared to Raul meireles and essien etc who are also experienced.

175 k a week for someone who plays sporadically is awful business, even by our standards.

We'll soon see if he loves his club more than his wallet- few in today's football world do. Ashley Cole surely won't.

Of course Lamps wants to finish his career here, but we'll just see how much he really wants to. That is, is he willing to take a HUGE pay cut and accept a smaller role? I honestly doubt it. But the important thing is that he is a Chelsea legend and where he finishes his career cannot change that (Unless he chooses to finish it at QPR :Goober: )

Time to burn those shirts then. :Goober:

Thought Frank had a good game.

agreed, I thought he was our second best player in the game. Well he usually plays well when he is involved in the team build ups and spread the ball around like today, problem arises when he pushes forward and try to be in the end of attacks like what he has been doing for most of preseason.

meh Sometimes i think he is more interested in scoring goals, then doing what is best for the team.

Actually, if you look at Lampard's average position for the game, it's right where it should be. He was ahead of Mikel and behind the front 3 midfielders. Lampard is not a defensive midfield and he's not supposed to be in this formation. He is going to make some runs and Chelsea will be better off for it.

Yes but like it or not, in that double pivot he's playing, Lampard needs to be more discipline and curb his attacking instincts. He showed it last season and why can't he continue it? And it's not like we have to chase the game and push more men forward either. He can't always go wandering further forward and leave the team exposed especially when we can't even keep the ball properly!

He still has to make some runs, he just has to time them well and be smart about when he makes them. I think he only made a few runs against Reading and he certainly wasn't shirking his defensive responsibilities. I think calling the system 4-2-3-1 confuses some people (not saying you, just in general). The deep-lying midfielder is not a defensive position. They do have to provide cover but so does everyone except possibly the striker. It's a creative position and Lampard has creativity in spades. The position also does not requires incredible speed. Players like Alonso and Pirlo are fantastic deep-lying midfielders and neither has particularly blazing pace. Long-term, we will need to replace Lampard as a starter, but I see no reason to believe he can't continue to be a very effective player for us this season.

Roberto: I will fight for Frank

ROBERTO DI MATTEO wants Frank Lampard to stay at Chelsea.

England star Lamps is in the final year of his contract — and revealed this week he had not yet been offered a new deal.

Am I the only one that thinks Lampsy takes best free kicks in Europe? They ain't pretty or really accurate, but they somehow always get in.

If you think he takes the best free kicks in europe you seriously havnt seen many free kicks.

No. He always go for power and more often than not, he hits the wall or it goes out for a goal kick. Hardly any techniques in his free kicks. Quite annoying really.
