Lampard Has More Goals In Him

With new Chelsea boss Rafael Benitez having admitted that club legend Frank Lampard may leave Stamford Bridge ­at the end of the season, the Blues could be losing a midfielder who has provided them with almost 200 goals in fewer than 400 games.

An absolutely astonishing scoring record for a midfielder, Lampard has a ratio of slightly better than one in three for Chelsea in the Premier League and almost a goal every other game for the club overall.

To score, or not to score?

After 6 clean sheets in our opening 10 games this season, Petr Cech has spent more time in the back of his net than ever before, which validates him praising new boss Rafa Benitez’s introduction this week.

20 goals had been shipped prior to the Manchester City match, in just 10 games; not quite the form you can keep up if you want to win games at this level.

Roman Must Tred Carefully Across The Bridge

Unpopular decisions make you an unpopular person. Fact. For the first time in his nine year tenure as the owner of Chelsea, he isn’t flavour of the week at the Bridge.

Hundreds of millions, and corridors full of silverware, aren’t everything to the Chelsea faithful at the moment, as 40,000 fans mourned the sacking of club legend Roberto Di Matteo, and to say they gave Rafa Benitez a hostile reception, may just be an understatement.

A View From The Bridge……. Manchester City.

Its certainly a Super Sunday today, as Champions League winners, and Premier League Champions lock horns at Stamford Bridge this afternoon. Whilst Rafa Benitez meets Roberto Mancini in the dugouts in a Spain v Italy clash that Rafa will be hoping ends similar to the Euro 2012 one this summer.

Eyes will also be on Fernando Torres, who looks to end another drab spell in front of goal, whilst opposition strikers Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero are having no troubles. 

New Gaffer Rafa Will Be The Form Finder.

Well, well, well. What a few days. Di Matteo is gone, rightly or wrongly, and ex-Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is in, until May at least.

He becomes Abramovich’s manager No.9, and will hope that the appointment can spark the Chelsea No.9 into life, who of course was brought to England during Benitez’s reign at Liverpool.

If you believe that is a coincidence, think again. Romans biggest investment at £50m, and he wants results from him, and I certainly believe he is the man to do it

Roberto Di Matte-Out

Chelsea legend Roberto Di Matteo became the sixth manager to fall in just five years as Abramovich issued the chop shortly after the 3-0 defeat in Turin last night.

The large majority of fans seem unhappy that he has been dismissed, but 6 months after guiding us to our solitary Champions League victory, and the FA Cup double.

Fernan-do’h Torres.

Fernando Torres started this season with some aplomb. But just one goal in seven games, coinciding with us winning just two from seven, means it looks like the bench may well be calling for the big clash on Tuesday night with Juventus.

Sturridge may be given a chance, more out of desperation than him forcing his way into the team, with Di Matteo saying “If I believe it is the right thing to do for the team, then yeah, I will leave him out”
