Chelsea team bus attacked by fans

 

Lampard left West Ham for Chelsea in 2001

Frank Lampard has revealed that a brick was thrown at the Chelsea team coach as it arrived at Upton Park for Wednesday's game against West Ham.

The Blues midfielder said: "The window got shattered. It made a huge bang. But that's football - it happens because there are emotions.

 

"There isn't too much point on dwelling on it as long as no-one gets hurt."

 

Emotions ran high as Lampard and team-mate Joe Cole returned to their relegation-threatened former club.

 

A Chelsea spokesman also played down the incident.

 

"It was a rock of some sort and it cracked a window of the coach. But none of the players were injured and none of them were sat by the window that was hit."

 

Lampard was booed by the home fans throughout.

 

He said: "It inspires me. It doesn't bother me, I enjoy it. It was a bit of banter and there are no hard feelings."

 

 

Shoot me if I get that sad!

He hates it! Especially this time because Cole got a good reception.

Had a move lined up, before his Uncle got the sack.

 

Gave his reason for leaving as the way his family had been treated (Harry, Frank Sr)

 

Critisised West Ham's coaching methods weeks after leaving, and bigging up how great it was at Chelsea in comparison.

 

Conveniently forgetting of course that his was his Dad and Uncle who were directly responsible for those training and coaching methods. (Either a total idiot, or somebody who doesn't stop at belittling their own family, you decide)

 

Completely exagerating the abuse he received when playing for us (Harry used to get grief for not substituting Lampard, no matter how poorly he was playing - it was a small section of the crowd and aimed at the manager mostly, not Lampard)

 

Using the 'abuse' as an excuse to have a pop at the club in dozens of interviews since leaving. The club incidently that first gave him his chance in football.

 

Stating that he'd like to score the goal that sends us down.

 

Stating that the reception he gets at Upton Park hurts, because his Dad's West Ham.

 

(try and reconcile those last two)...

 

Claiming in his biography that we cheered when he broke his leg at Aston Villa, whilst playing for us. A gross lie, but not untypical of a number of his others.

 

'Going Down' hand signals from an ex-player right in front of you also tend to stoke a reaction.

 

Basically he's a liar.

I've always though he comes across as a d?ckhead, personally.

don't mind frank meself, but then he's never done owt to upset me

 

thought he was living on his name at west ham, being bulled up my the press as well, cos he was a world cup winner

 

at chelsea he's grown to be one of the most effective midfielders in the league

 

if we're talking gary nevilles, his chum redknapp beats him in that race, imo

Casino - on the playing front, I wouldn't argue with any of that. Never underated his effectiveness as a player, and see how he's progressed at Chelsea (although his World Cup performances were poor, but Frank doesn't like that getting mentioned, even by journalists).

 

Put it this way, they'll be Bolton players who've left, and you read what they've said when at another club, and you know it's twisted and packed with lies. You know the ins and outs, but unless you're talking to a fellow Bolton fan, it'd be difficult to explain it to anyone else.

 

Lampard (rightly) has it in for West Ham, because of the treatment of his Dad and Uncle. But he should have directed his anger at the people responsible, the Chairman and the Board. Instead of which, he takes it out on the easier target of the supporters, through the press. We don't get the platform he does to answer back, even though we know a lot of it is exagerated and/or lies. I think that's a bit cowardly.

 

If as Frank makes out we're bitter of his Chelsea move, then I'd like to hear his explanation of why Joe Cole gets a round of applause.

 

If it's success, then likewise with Rio Ferdinand.

 

There's a clip doing the rounds, where that Spurs idiot takes a swing at him. Leading up to it, and in the couple seconds after, Lampard cowers and skips away in a semi circle. As soon as he realises the bloke is restrained by stewards and his fellow players, his whole body language changes, raised fists and the big "I am".

 

That clip sums up Frank Lampard to me.

 

(well you did ask!)

I think you'll find a funnier clip when Fabriegas knocks him flying during the CC Cup Final. What a girl! I must admit, I do think he's a bit of a cock who stuggles to hit a barn door with a banjo whilst wearing his England shirt. I say 'his' as it appears he has a God given right to wear it.

Indeed.

Come to think of it, where was he for the majority of his 50+ caps.

 

England play far too many international matches these days. It's far too easy to get a large number of caps now than it was in years gone by.

Slag him all you like folks, we'd all want him in our teams.

A free-scoring midfielder? They just grow on trees, don't they?

 

I don't particularly admire El Hadji Diouf as a person, but he's had a great season.

That's the main reason I formed my low opinion of him as a person.

 

He came across as arrogant, dismissive and petulant when the world cup performances were questioned.

Speak for yourself

 

You are hopeless at this aren't you. You're claret n blue brother in arms Chim Chiminee posts interesting and informative stuff that's worth the effort whilst you post stuff that would get laughed off a playground.

Say something interesting or get f?cked.

I am.

You're obviously delighted with the likes of Mullins, Dailly and Boa Morte playing in midfield.

What's that got to do with it? Judas was a ragging good midfielder too, better than a lot we had at the time, but i wouldn't have wanted him back for all the tea in China.

 

I'd rather watch my club in the conference that win the league with people like that in the side.
