    Lampard

    Assuming he does go to Chelsea, will it be a cheery wave or two fingers raised high from y'all?

    For me, the former. He did what we all wanted team wise, and did his best to replace age with youth. Some of the football was lovely, not enough but I'd sooner watch us than Stoke or Middlesborough. He kept our hopes up to the bitter end. And if YOU were offered a higher profile job at many times the salary, at a relatively benign time for the place you currently worked at, don't kid me you wouldn't take it.

    DCFCA? Anybody?

    One of DCFA's hands will be giving a cheery wave, and the other hand will be flipping the bird

    A cheery wave from me.
    I think he achieved above anyone’s expectations and if he does go maybe get first dibs on some of them Chelsea youngsters

    A cheery wave...if he makes his mind up quickly.

    Can’t blame him for going when such an opportunity arises and if it’s all on good terms we might benefit from future loans.

    Don’t want it being all drawn out though...if Jokanovic is no longer a possibility then one of Hughton, Morris, Wagner, or Monk needs to be appointed asap, imo.

    Mixed feelings really. He gave us some magical moments of good football and idem ditto results. He brought a fair few of our own into the matchday squad but we had a couple of months, with Blackburn away being the worst, of some awful games. Extenuating circumstances are that those games were mainly without 4 or 5 of our better players.

    I wish he had come out and said Yes, I want to manage Chelsea one day but I don't yet have the experience....... he hasn't and I still hope he stays.

    What a neanderthal you are! His wife is a professional in her own right and has more intelligence in her little finger than you have.

    As for Lmapard, well its likely to be a bad move for him , he hasn't the experience to manage Chelsea but then maybe they get someone to do the difficult stuff and he will be the figurehead, good to see and english manager in the prem, but there are better english managers who don't have the name and the connections. My prediction sacked by Christmas!

    Yes I am tending to agree Mista, it's dragging on too long and they are quite possibly using Frank as a smokescreen to obscure their preferred target. Benitez? That said they may still want FL as his assistant with a view to elevation in a couple of years....

    Agree with that Geoff. Think mista first mentioned the Benitez link which does make sense.
    Only thing against it is that Benitez is not famed for playing the sort of attractive attacking football that Chelsea fans prefer, but then virtually all fans are fickle enough to be won over by success over style.

    Believe FL is on holiday at the moment, as I suppose are many of the football fraternity, so that may be another source of delay.

    Benitez's last Chelsea stint, albeit as interim manager, saw him play 48, win 28, draw 10 and lose 10. Win % of 58.3%

    Extrapolate that and you get 74 points over a 38 game season. Two more than this season under Sarri. He wasn't all that popular with the fans IIRC.

    When he was there before(and did a pretty good job) Chelsea fans never really accepted him because of his Liverpool connection so it's debateable if that will have changed?? Taking Frank has Assistant (as Heir apparent) might smooth things but I am not so sure, a few bad results and the 'get rid of Benitez and move Frank up' chants will start!! Still who knows with Abramovic??

    I reckon the delay is as reported in some sections of the media - compensation for Derby losing Morris and other key backroom staff as part of FL’s departure. It was written in FL’s contract on compensation level to release him but probably not so clear cut with the others.

    I just want it sorted ASAP..... just in time for Chelsea will be JTFL for us!!

    Conversely, lampard could be scrapping it out at the bottom of the championship with us in 6 months, getting sacked and becoming a 2nd tier journeyman manager.

    I'm surprised they are considering him, but then given what Manure did is it surprising? Chelski is a poison chalice and doubt there would be much sentiment if he doesn't get them in the top 6, given they have a transfer ban its not an easy job to take on.

    Whilst for Lampard it must be tempting, IMO he would be better served staying with Derby and getting more managerial experience and hopefully taking us up.

    Yes I agree he would be in very dodgy ground going there Few bad results he's out ,could be his last managerial job
