Well I hope Lampard flops massively. Never liked him.

I have always quite liked Lampard. I don't really have a problem with Chelsea either. I save my bile for Small Heath, Manure and Liverpool in that order.

Can anybody confirm if Frank Lampard has left Frank Lampard's Derby to be appointed head coach of Frank Lampard's Chelsea?  Haven't seen it mentioned anywhere.

The lack of due diligence in football management recruitment is brilliant. In what other industry would you employ someone with 12 months experience to fill one of the top positions in the country...

I think Frank Lampard is going to need all the luck in the world to succeed at Chelsea .Lets face it,he failed to get Derby promoted so how is he expected to succeed at Chelsea minus their best player and a transfer ban

I've never liked Fat Frank, I was one of the few who stood still as all around applauded when he broke their scoring record in our ground. I admired the achievement but it's their business and he was our opponent.

I have to say he acted with great professionalism in his first managerial role and I was very impressed but his switch to Chelsea sees me wishing him nothing but bad luck, misfortune and downright misery in his new role.

Itís like if JLR decide to appoint the nearest KwikFit manager as their new CEO😂

However in my traditional mind Derby are a same size club as Chelsea.

Thatís too difficult as no one has mentioned  it but great news is SSN keep showing John McGinn goal as Frankís biggest achievement😊

I applauded Lampard that day. As a season ticket holder in the McLeish/Lambert years it was a rare opportunity to applaud something apart from the half time entertainment and the announcement of the attendance.

Fair play to Lampard, securing a 3 year contract. Nice big payout after the Chelsea fans hound him out in less than a season.

I remember a game, around 10ish years ago, when he came over to take a corner in front of the Holte. It was soon after he split with his Doris and we all started giving it "where's ya missus gone", he looked up gave a big smile and nodded. I always thought he were alright after that. I still hope he's another pundit on telly come Christmas though.

Don't mind Lampard.  Never have.  Seems untouched by a lot of the arseholery that afflicts so many footballers.

Nwver disliked him and think heís been one of, if not, the best midfielders of his generation. I think this is a mistake for both Lampard and Chelsea...even though I can understand the reasons why both have made the decisions they have.

Penny for the thoughts of Howe and Dyche this evening.

Its ridiculous Solskjaer and Lampard have gotten the opportunities they have. Moyes is little more than a meme now but he did at least have to earn his chance at a champions league side.

Nothing against either man but I sincerely hope they both fail spectacularly. Honestly think Guardiola and Zidane have convinced chairmen everywhere an ex player is the way to go.
