Lampard Is Good!





Oh-Oh Frank Lampard, Oh-Oh.

Ah, old Frankie boy, a member of our hate section (and rightly so) but maybe, just maybe, we've all been giving him a hard time over the past few years for his performances on the pitch.

First, remember all those years ago when he was a fresh faced young (chubby) footballer meandering around the West ham midfield? He was pretty good then. His £11m transfer to Chelsea in 2001 put him further in the media spotlight but his good performances and great breaks into the box endeared him to the fans and even to me.

His performances since then have gone from strength to strength, scoring 20 goals a season from midfield, creating numerous goals and leading Chelsea to trophies.

So we all know why we hate him (buffoonery, pompousness, deluded) but, in light of his 4 goals against Derby, can we not just say "he's not bad, that Lampard, fella"?

Is it because he is so bad for England that people claim he's shit? That he nearly won European Footballer of the Year? That his father is Frank Snr, his uncle Harry Redknapp, his cousin Jamie Redknapp? That Stevie G is a media darling? That Frankie makes unfortunate comments to the media? That he gets paid too much money?
yes, to all those things but I say to one and all - lay off Frank. He may be a utter tool, but he's a good footballer.

i don't think anyone would dispute that that pompous buffoon Lampard is a decent player. He does regularly hit 20 deflected corkers a season.
His passing is average, his tackling about as good as a chunky thighed Shrewsbury winger and i'm not sure if he has headed the ball more than 5 times since euro 2004.
And he's just a cunt. Let's not forget that, ever. Or allow it to cloud our vision.

Will this long-delayed podcast be a classic? It better be. If not i will hunt ye down, i will find ye.

Im not threatening, just stating the facts, jack.

p.s. talking of facts its not about his footballing skills, its how much sun he blocks out, the jammy, deflecting, over-luncky - gold-watch showing offing, reflexive suit wearing lump of chelsea shite.

Looking foward to the podcast lads, remember you have a responsibility to your fans now! As for Lampard, a valuable midfielder he most certainly is but I can't stand the sight of his trap head.

anon - we do our best to get a pod out each week, sometimes with work, holidays, etc, we can't...

I kind of agree. I think he is a wanker, but he's also a decent footballer.

I think that he needs to leave Chelsea and go abroad to redeem himself, though.
