Should We Cash in on Lamps This Summer?

    • Yes - take the money. We've got a fantastic midfield without him. And besides, we can use the money to buy someone to take his place!

    • No - without him we'll be lucky to finish 2nd or 3rd in the EPL.

Given that Lamps has (apparently) turned down a VERY generous offer from Chelsea, and now looks set to happily go through the next two seasons until he can leave on a free...should we cash in on him for 15-20 million now, or use him for two seasons and just write off any transfer money?

How can I start a poll?

It needs to be

"Brian M's infatuation with finding and posting derogatory articles about Fat Frank at the moment, or starting polls like this one"

Is it

a) Just a jolly swagman, having a bit of fun?

B) Not very nice, turning on one of the clubs best servants in recent years?

c) Starting to get boring, given that NOBODY here knows WTF is going on with negotiations or offers, or

d) A way of jacking up the number of posts made to try to qualify for as big a number of balls as Gem?

How do I do that then?

Frank wants to stay: agent denies Lampard has rejected record pay deal

Last updated at 11:21am on 2nd July 2007

Frank Lampard's agent has denied the player has turned down a record offer from Chelsea and insists he wants to stay at the club.

It has been suggested the England midfielder had rejected a deal that would have netted him ?131,000 a week, making him the club's highest-paid player.

But the 28-year-old's representatives have insisted that no talks have taken place with Chelsea.

Agent Steve Kutner said today that neither Lampard, chief executive Peter Kenyon nor himself have been free to set up a meeting since the end of last season.

Lampard, who has been linked with moves to Barcelona and Juventus, will now join up with his team-mates in America next Monday but Kutner won't be going with him.

Kutner, however, is adamant there is no cause for alarm and said: "The three of us haven't had a chance to have talks.

"There has never been a time when the three of us have been free as Frank has been on holiday and Peter has been away. But nothing has changed. Frank has always said he wants to stay at Chelsea for the rest of his career.

"He will join up with Chelsea's tour next week and will be as committed as ever. Nothing can get sorted out until he gets back, but there is no rush."

It will probably have to wait until next month as Chelsea face friendlies at Feyenoord, Rangers and Brondby when they return from Los Angeles.

The club are also still trying to get Arjen Robben to commit to a new deal in the wake of interest from Real Madrid, and Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has denied he was told he could not spend any money to find a replacement.

The Stamford Bridge club have targeted Lyon winger Florent Malouda should the Dutchman secure a switch to Spain, although they will have to increase their initial bid of ?12million to ?17m.

So far the Blues have signed Steven Sidwell, Claudio Pizarro and Tal Ben Haim on free transfers, which is in stark contrast to the big spending the club have done over the previous three years.

"Nobody from the board said Jose you have to only bring in players on a Bosman because we have no money to spend," Mourinho told Chelsea TV.

"I think it's bad business if you only bring in players under the Bosman law and they are not good enough.

"If the only reason you are bringing them is because they are free, they become expensive. The point is to bring in good players."

At last a bit of sense on the matter

Somebody roger your wife when you were at work, Kev? Somebody steal your cornflakes? Just can't find your left slipper, maybe?

How in God's name is posting a poll that asks a very balanced question, in any way my slagging off Frank? No, please, enlighten me. I'm all ears.

If you'd take a moment to ask the misses why she felt the need to bump uglies with someone else in the first place. Or to buy a new packet of cornflakes. Or to just walk around barefoot for an hour or two until the other slipper turns up. Maybe then you'd come to the conclusion that Brian M (God, you've got me speaking in the 3rd person now) is in fact a big fan of Franks. Something I've posted in several other threads. My only proviso being, if he's going to leave the club he purports to 'love' over the odd 10,000 quid a week here and there, then he can jolly well sod off to Spain.

And, as can be seen by the split-vote, I'm obviously not the only one conflicted about the outcome of the Frank Lampard Summer Saga.

PS: I voted 'unsure'. But thanks for asking.

I voted no, but I don't necessarily agree that we would finish 2nd or 3rd next season without him.

I do think we would be immeasurably worse off if he did leave.

I'm astonished that so many people are happy to see him go. I seem to remember that there has been a lot of gnashing of teeth and wailing when other players, who couldn't hold a candle to Frank's achievements, decide to move on.

You'll miss him a lot if he goes that is for sure!

regardless of form, he remains the most important midfielder we have. including essien.

Lampard is integral to the team and I find it staggering that so many people are either in favour of cashing in on him or are even unsure if we should. There is not another player in our squad who could replace Lamps and contribute as much, and as effectively, as he does. Christ even if all he did was score the number of goals he does and create the number of goals he does then spend the rest of his time sitting around on the grass drinking bottles of Sol he would still be one of the most important players in the team!

Cash in on Frank? You're nuts!!!

I voted that NO we should not get rid of him. However, I fail to realize that without him we would finnish 3rd in the premiership. I think without him we would still have a aVERY good midfield. I would like frank to stay solely because he seems to love it here at the club, and has a close rapport with teh fans, players and amager alike.

However, should frank stall on contract negotiations due to not getting 130 grand a week, then let him go.

Leave me out of this you grubby little boy.

Same time next week, Mrs. Y? 169.gif

I just had a word with her Brian, she said it was so disappointing last time she's going to stick with her candle for next week, but thanks anyway, and she hopes you find the right man some day

Fair enough Kev, you're the boss!

PS: can you tell her I'm sorry I shouted out, 'Who's your daddy now, Ms. Diaz?' in the middle of it? I appreciate how that could be seen as insensitive on my part! icon_wink.gif

She has mentioned that that would be the only insensitive part. The part that mattered appeared to be extremely sensitive apparently.

Hang on. What's that dear? "Hair-trigger?" Will Brian know what you mean? Oh, OK!

Anyway, she also says that she thought you were trying to find the Daz, to get the unfortunate stain out of your trousers before it dried, so you are forgiven and forgotten

You're a funny man, Kev!

'Trying to Find the Daz' - can't you just see that as England's answer to the film, American Pie... 169.gif
