Is this how we treat our legends?
A little part of me thinks what, if the facts are being reported correctly, makes the antics of Ken Bates when he ostracised former players appear almost charitable.
Toda I`ve awoke, after a heavy Christmas night on the ale, to the news that not only, if the facts have been reported correctly, are we set to wave goodbye to Frank Lampard but the legend has been told that he should start, actively, looking for a new club in January!
Staring out at me, from the pages of a tabloid are the damning words of a club source remarking,
"Frank is absolutely distraught."
"He wants to keep playing for Chelsea but they`ve told him to find another club in the January transfer window. He can`t believe it. All he wants to do is play for Chelsea. This club means everything to him."
"Frank worships the club - and especially the fans - and would happily have seen out his career at Stamford Bridge."
"After everything he has done for Chelsea, he cannot believe the way the club are throwing him out so callously."
"Anyone who saw his performance against Aston Villa will know he should be the first name on the team-sheet."
I have to say, if it is true, it`s left me stunned at how a legend that can still bring so much to the table is about to be shoved out the door, shame on those in charge!
