Will He or Won`t He?
It is a tantalizing question that is still doing the rounds!
Will Roman Abramovich do a u-turn and offer Frank Lamaprd a new contract or will Frank be allowed to just clear his locker, come May, and walk away from Stamford Bridge?
Now several of you will, no doubnt, be flinging your heads back and moaning about another Lampard article, but bear with me.
Sat here in the editorial chair, I`m of the opinion that what happens to Frank will be a clear signal of where the club is going.
If Frank is allowed to walk away, it, to me, signals that our club has become a production line, whereby players are treated as commodities that only serve a purpose. When that purpose is fulfilled then they`re dispensed with accordingly.
But, if frank were given another contract, it`d suggest to me that the club recognizes loyalty, rewards loyalty and has set it`s heart on creating a dynasty involving those who have been the heart and soul of our emergence as one of Europe`s top clubs over the last decade.
But, with Frank`s agent, Steve Kutner, remarking about the situation,
"Nothing has changed regarding Frank`s situation at Chelsea."
I fear that the former paragraph could well sum up the way our club us heading!
