Frank Lampard: A Glittering Career at Chelsea

Frank Lampard: A Glittering Career at Chelsea

It really has been a glittering career for one of the Premier Leagues finest players.

It does not feel too long ago that we were all questioning why Chelsea would let Frank Lampard leave as he managed to become the London club’s all-time top goal scorer, yet his future is being questioned again with his contract due to expire at the end of the season.

Should Barkley and Townsend Start for England? Stats vs Lampard, Gerrard, Carrick & Milner

What should Roy go with against Montenegro and Poland: youth or experience? These aren’t friendlies, or weaker opposition in which certain players can be integrated. These are two dangerous teams, neither of whom we have beaten in this group, and the stage on which England meet them can more or less be described as knockout competition. So this isn’t the time for experimentation, this is the time to pick the best team possible. So when I talk about Barkley and …

Chelsea 4 Wigan 1 | In-Depth Match Summary Stats

Chelsea survived a scare of the possibility of losing a two goal lead for the third time in 2013 by taking their chances and giving Rafa Benitez a rare Stamford Bridge win.
