Cech`s Not Given Up Hope!

Cech`s Not Given Up Hope!

The list of those who know their football and their view son the future of Frank Lampard grows by the day.

Everybody seems to be in unison with regards to Chelsea being prepared to Chelsea not offering Frank a new contract come the end of this season.

There`s an air of disbelief that somebody with so much to offer is being allowed to just walk away from Stamford Bridge.

However, Petr Cech, who returned form injury to take up his customary place between the sticks at the Britannia Stadium, on Saturday, hasn`t given up hope of Lampard staying, remarking to the media,

There is still six months to go until the end of the season and we will see then whether he stays or not."

"If he keeps playing like that then obviously he will keep asking about an extension."

"He`s been here a long time and seen bad and good times. That shows the loyalty of the player."

"The team changed, his age changed, but he is still important for the team."

"He might not play every game but when he does play he shows his quality and his experience. This is something that is great to see."

Can someone grab the board by the balls and point out that Lampard does still have something to give our fine club!

Honestly this has become a joke. I can't understand why we won't keep Lampard on. It is still very clear that he is capable of playing for chelsea at the highest level. This guy has given ALL his talent and heart to this club. I've read how some of you fans go on about how we should move forward. You guys are blind and ignorant! Look at united and what Fergie, Giigs and scholes still has to offer and look what happened to arsenal when they got rid of all their ledgends....we NEED Lampard here. Nobody said anything about playing him every single game, but for as long as he can play he should be at the club where he helped create success. I rest my case.

Treatment of Super Frank is ridiculous to say the least! I don't know what the thought process of the board not to keep frank, but if they'd offer him a one year rolling contract with a third of his pay I'm sure he'd seriously consider it. But, if that's the way they want to treat their history making scoring midfielder I'm sure he'd love the sunny LA and that 6.5m/yr deal.

lovely christine doesn't want to leave britain.

Hope is a good thing, and we should never give it up
14/01/2013 18:16:00
If the players got what they wanted, we'd still have Mourinho as manager, or at the very least Carlo, or RDM. You get the idea, I'm sure. I'm not optimistic about Frank. I certainly think he'll go no matter what reaction the players or the fans have.

When Roman Abramovich bought Chelsea Football Club, he overnight became a worldwide name as the club became a major player accross the globe. His credibility soared again in Russia when they were nominated to host the World Cup. His time at Chelsea has been dogged by poor decisions, ridiculous sackings and the regular disposal of players, where he often took a massive financial loss. Winning trophies yes, but more failures than successes have been the regular pattern. If he can`t thrash out some sort of deal to ensure that Frank Lampard extends his contract, his recognition around the world as a credible owner and individual will be viewed simply as a wealthy man but absolutely no sense whatsoever. Listen to the world Roman, not the idiots around you.

@radio, if so then, all of us should support the man to end his career with us,with a bang. Im still hoping though, keep believing

This lamps and legend issue will destroy chelsea.every writer is lamps as topic,he has overshadowed every player who do more than him ie hazard's goal,ramirez workrate and even scaring potential managers.when will the funs stop this ***** as its making the club to be dreaded by good players.4 christ sake lamps is finished,all he knows is to use the fans clapping as he is the owner of cfc.if i were benitez ill put him vs oscar to see who contributes more to the team.
14/01/2013 19:02:00
Gaban: we should be supporting him regardless! No player is above criticism, but the way people here attack Lampard is absurd. See, for instance, mzee69's comments. Lampard certainly still contributes, and to say that he's "finished" is to blatantly ignore and/or devalue his contributions. It's all or nothing with people like mzee, who suggest that Lampard must go because his presence stifles the progress of players like Oscar. What nonsense. There are top clubs all over the world that use their older players as models for the younger ones. Lamps is a model professional and a great role model. No is saying he has to start every match, but I'd like to at least have the option of giving him a start. I think at his age Lamps has come to accept that his role in the club is changing. All season long he's handled himself with dignity--and yet he's still attacked? Pathetic.
14/01/2013 19:28:00
And mzee's statement that the Lamps issue will "destroy" the club? Good god, have a little common sense and try, just once, to avoid hyperbole. It doesn't suit you.
14/01/2013 19:29:00
yes no manager will take cfc job with the sentimental fans and deadwood we have.mou and pep will never tolarate funs and player dictating a club.ive never heard a legend begging 4 contract except cfc.just a disgust for a players subotaging managers and claimed to be legends.
14/01/2013 19:43:00
we will regret letting him go the sameway we regretted letting ballack go. we will become like arsenal next season unless a certain special one comes back...
14/01/2013 19:46:00
Sentimental fans? Are you kidding me? What fans aren't sentimental, first of all? Secondly, just because you don't rate Lampard doesn't mean that everyone should agree with you. You can be sentimental about days past and simultaneously evaluate a player's current level of performance. Well, I can. Who knows what you're capable of.
14/01/2013 19:58:00
All I have to say about it is : I do not think there is one team in the Premier League that wouldn't like to see Frank in their team. Need I say more?

I think lamps is willing to take a huge paycut to see out his career at chelsea, what made me think so is the quotes I saw today about christine bleakley* that she is a homebird and don't want to go to LA, it gives credence to the claim that lamps would take a pay cut to stay in london, but the truth is he won't get the contract, if we were gonna offer him a contract, we would have done that by now, sadly RA doesn't want him here anymore, all we can hope for is that he should atleast signout of the bridge by topping bobby tambling network
14/01/2013 20:16:00
Record* if he leaves he'll should leave with his head held high
14/01/2013 20:20:00
The lamps media darling has stopped saying,cfc dont loose if lamps play.and is a penalty worth the hazard goal to brag lamps as motm.benitez even ignored praising one player running everywere exposing the back 4.can not wait 4 modric to come and will be back to the bench.

0 all times..its always good to be objective even in criticism, I think you have taken this rant about Lampard too far...your opinion could be that Lampard is no longer needed which is fine (since its your opinion)...but then a none football follower reading your posts will think you are talking about a really poor player, egoisitic, proud and one who thrives amidst unrest....Lampard is none of these and deserves a bit more respect to say the least....from any fan who has followed the club from tha last decade...I have also criticized Lamps in certain games...but your posts are skewed and do not show a sense of fair judgement...Infact more recent displays from Lampard clearly shows he can bring somthing to the table in footballing terms...I know there's probably a lot more behind the scene why the club might not wanta offer him a new contract (the scenario is not normal, not even Didi was treated this way)... such as FFP, The rumoured AVB saga e.t.c but I think objectively the facts for Lampard being given at least a year rolling contract far outweighs those against it....Roman is very very stubborn...I do hope he changes his mind this I think he is the one directly behind this...the other 3 amigos (like GabeU'd say) not really appear to have a say in this matter....still hoping for some sorta looks remote though...

No one said his penalty was better than Hazard's goal. In fact, that particular goal has been repeatedly praised. We need more of that from Hazard. On the upside, thanks for reminding me of the futility of trying to communicate to someone who can't even present a remotely coherent argument. Funny how it's those people who are always the most inflexible in their opinions. Time-waster this is.
