Is it just me or is this whole Frank Lampard thing just getting a little tedious.
"I want to stay, this is my home" says our Frank. "He told me he wants to stay for many years" says Big Phil .... but within minutes the agents are in saying that the situation is far from resolved.
What's the problem ? Sign the contract and put the matter to bed. Oh no its never that simple - apparently ! Its all about 4 years vs 5 years, £130K pw vs £150k pw, one year extensions vs contract commitments. So what price loyalty, what price sticking with the club and fans that stuck by you - clearly this is out of place in the modern game and frankly (sic) we shouldn't be surprised.
Personally I'd like to see Lamps stay but I doubt it will happen

Within 20mins, Big Phil had the world's media eating out of his hands and dispelled any doubts we might have had – this guy is definitely the real deal. Now if can handle the dressing room egos the way he handles the press we should be in for something a bit special .... and to that precise point he was asked "are you a special one ?" The reply was an immediate "yes".... quickly qualified by saying he was special to his family, friends and his country – and only 'so-so' as a manager. Somehow I doubt that !
