Frank Lampard’s job as Chelsea boss is under threat following Chelsea’s recent struggles that could see the club miss out on Champions League qualification.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has been urged to choose the path of common sense and give Lampard at least one more year as Chelsea boss.

“Certainly, a place in the top four is under threat. But does this really surprise us? Lampard is only in his second season as a manager — his first was at Derby County — and was prevented by a transfer embargo from buying anyone last summer,” Daily Mail wrote.

“His team has contained a number of young players who have largely done well for him but whose form was always likely to fluctuate.

“Lampard foresaw these problems in January when he said publicly that he needed to strengthen his squad, particularly up front.

“That didn’t happen and now Chelsea are stuck in a downturn that their own manager saw coming.

“Common sense gives Lampard at least one more season. Common sense says a young, bright manager is given opportunity to plan properly in a way that few of his predecessors were.

“Common sense says Chelsea stick to the mantra they spoke of when they appointed him last summer. Common sense says Chelsea try to change.

“The alternative is a return to old Chelsea, zigzagging like a drunk — banknotes tumbling out of his pockets — from one shallow, late-night party to the next. Looking for real fulfilment but never finding it.”

    Frank should have another 2 year to build his man is legend and has chance to buy couple players. We will me in top in 2 more year.

  2. It is important to realise the urgency of the matter Lampard does not need another season. Chelsea should not be taken as training ground for coaches.

    Give him more time to rebuilt the team
    Frank is good

  4. Lampard is clueless with emotions crowding his vision. He keeps sidelining players for the slightest of disagreements. He has some growing up to do as well concerning his preference to English players even at their worst. I guess Marson is his cousin, nkt

    The Job of a Coach is not a easy one. LAMPAD is handicap in the area of buying players what can he do. All the Matches lost can easily be won if the players use their head. LAMPAD can not go in and play. We need serious players. Since William lost his mother, he has not regain his sparkling form with terrific shots all gone with his mother. Abraham was overwhelmed by his calls to England National Team and he may NEVER be recall again. Tomori was over excited for all the accolades and over praises he received from supporters and fade away. The only one serious players now are Zoma Capallaro the scorer of our last two goals. Who carelessly got a ban for just being careless. So tell me. Where is LAMPAD fault comes in here?

  6. The price of players playing for Chelsea is far much below other teams in epl let Lampard spend on his favorite players and fail to deliver at least to axed but he has done exemplary well under prevailing circumstance. Don’t listen to differences of you fellow Russian.Remember Frank is alengend in the club He wishes the best for the club.Let common sense prevail

    In all fairness Frank like many og jos predecessors is working with a team that he inherited (minus a few player’s). I agree, hove Frank some time to establish a name (not many have had that time)! If Lampatd is replaced (no matter how good (,on paper) hod replacement will take a good length of time to identify a workable Squad! Frank know’s the club the game & the League- place trust in him and I’m sure Frank will deliver!!

  8. Frank Lampard is a good coach. With him being a Chelsea legend, knowing the culture of the team. He fits in perfectly from my own point of view as a staunch Chelsea FC fan. He was doing well at Derby. And has managed to work with the crop of players at his disposal without any signing when the club was serving its ban. Thumps up for the legend. Let’s not be short sighted. Frankie did very well upto date. He needs time to prove critics wrong. He needs our support 💯.Give him a financial muscle to go in the market and buy players he wants. #myownthoughts

  9. If Chelsea sack Lampard I’ll quite. They will never find a better man as Frank Lampard

    I think it was not the right timing for Lampard to become a head coach for Chelsea, he should have been an assistant before….,for me selection of players for a particular match or replacing a player is a problem not forgetting we have injury players too,but Chelsea WILL MAKE TOP FOUR AT THE END OF THIS SEASON,BLUE IS THE COLOR.

  11. LAMPARD can do well if given more time at Chelsea. But his imaturity in handling players is a big setback. He has no selection techniques, that’s why upto now he has no first 11. He should however, be given more two years and with additional mature squad. There we can judge his performances.

  12. Are the people who posted these comments really as illiterate as their comments suggest?

    Lampard was a great player for Chelsea and country, we owe him that. But that was then! A string of losses (mainly inflicted at home, the Stamford bridge) in front of the entire Chelsea faithful sometimes by nondescript opposition has left us conflicted. Chelsea still has the some ofthe finest players in Europe. Lampard is taking his baby steps as manager with a young squad that requires mentorship. Sadly this is something he can’t provide. His heart is in the right place, no doubt, but he’s not yet ready for Chelsea. He should be let out to graze,acquire the relevant skills before he can be trusted with the family heirloom.
    We wish him well in his coaching career but the Chelsea boots are just too big for him at the moment

  14. Lampard is best coach ever but what he need now it is a support from Chelsea funs and he need fund for market
    Its my thought

  15. Lampard is doing good at the club but the sellection of players is letting done. And other thing they play thier game to much at the back i think they must also learn how to shoot if dont shoot u wont score.

  16. Lampard should change his mentality of promoting English players, that alone can make him succeed

  17. ChelseaFam | March 3, 2020 at 12:25 pm |

    Out with lamps. I bet you wouldnt be saying he should stay if he wanted 100 million of your money for signings after his showing. This not joke. Its business and he has failed to deliver. Its that simple. The honeymoon is over.

  18. Why give him another year when others never got the chance? You can’t eat your cake and have it. The decision is final, no champions league, football, Frank gets his P45. This is the worst Chelsea team with inconsistencies I have ever known. Lampard is a legend, not a good manager. Lampard OUT!!!

    He should change his mentality of following English player and also change the wrong sabsi
    tuations that he used to do

  20. First and foremost lampard should stop promoting english players someone like mason mount, odio,Barkeley and tomori and so on if he can do that he will succeed at chelsea and bring new players but if he fails to deliver then management need to sack him

  21. I think Lampard should drop Marson Mount if he want to be successful in Chelsea because Mount is not capable of playing for Chelsea. Frank Lampard need to be wise and make a right selection

  22. INUSAH IMORO ALI | March 3, 2020 at 8:37 pm |

    I think Frank Lampard did pretty well with the current players he is using he should be given another chance with they right players he think will bring quality to the team, let the technical bench take a critical look at the upfront and our defence i’m very 100% percent sure if this done Chelsea will surely come back to it fitness.

    Chelsea are 4th. Give the bloke a chance,or the management carousel will continue.

  24. Mucunguzi Innocent | March 4, 2020 at 10:26 am |

    Frank lampard has done all he is expected of ,thumbs up.but he truelly needs funding

  25. The challenge with this Chelsea of ours is the lack of patience by the top management. Every team/manager needs time to rebuild. Look at Liverpool/Klop, if they weren’t patient with him he wouldn’t have brought them this far. As long as this is not taken into consideration, our problem is will never cease to exists.
