Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has now been listed as one of the favourites by bookmakers to be sacked.

Sack threats have since filled the media since the 3-1 defeat to Manchester City, and a number of Blues fans on social media have aired their bit of frustration.

However, fans at the Shed End have shown their support to the Chelsea boss and have insisted that they are solidly behind the Blues legend.

@WeAre_TheShed has taken to Twitter to reveal that a huge number of Chelsea supporters have come together to create a banner to show their backing for Frank Lampard.

A crowdfunder page has been set up to raise £999 so as to create the banner that could be unveiled in the FA Cup third-round tie at home to Morecambe this weekend, and the money has since been realised.

A statement was released by We Are The Shed, thus: “If Chelsea supporters were allowed in the stadium they would be giving Frank Lampard and Co. the backing they deserve.

“Whilst supporters are kept out of stadiums the narrative is more likely to be created from online accounts and media outlets, not those singing from the stands.

“Frank Lampard has the support of the real Chelsea faithful from all over the world and we want to show him that by creating this new, 15 meter large banner to be placed inside Stamford Bridge this weekend.

“We are in talks with the club and are hopeful that we will be able to have this hung in time for Sunday’s FA Cup match against Morecombe but at the moment nothing is 100% set in stone at present.

“The group members have already raised the bulk of the money, a total of £890, and just need the remaining £110 to cover the cost. One we have reached our goal please do not donate any further. There will be other opportunities for you to get involved in the future. Any additional money will be donated to charity or our local food bank.

“Donating any amount big or small is greatly appreciated. We know times might be hard for some at this time so, if you do wish to contribute toward this display, even 10 or 20p goes a long way.

“The cost of the banner is so high for two reasons, the size and the fact we are paying for it to be produced in time for the weekend. As always we will post the full receipt online for transparency.”
