Lampard believes Chelsea must get on with it!

He has just come back from a lengthy injury and is once again trying to find his match fitness and sharpness, Frank Lampard believes that we need to get over the disappointing result at the weekend and us the defeat to reignite their Premier League title bid.

The lads were stifled by Corinthians in the final of the club world cup and in the end the Brazilians came out 1-0 winners, in a game which wasn’t very entertaining or exciting to see.

And because of that fact we have now become the first champions League winners in the last six years to not walk away with the tag or world champions.

It could have been argued that the Brazilian outfit wanted the crown more, that it meant a lot more to them than it did us. Which is probably the case as many European clubs see the competition as a hindrance, but Lampard, captain in his first start for almost two months after injury, denied the Blues had treated their mid-season trip to Japan lightly.

‘It was certainly a meaningful competition,’ he said. ‘It’s been meaningful from the minute we got here. And, as a club, we wanted to win it.’

He added: ‘There were a few echoes of [last year’s Champions League final] Munich but sadly it didn’t end the same.

‘The game’s about scoring goals. We had chances throughout the game.’

Sadly we left Japan without the silverware that we all wanted, and many expected. But the fact that we have a whole bunch of games between now and New Year’s means we cannot dwell on the disappointment and we need to focus on what is to come.

    Wy is frank lampard talking? After a poor run of form, the younger members of the team suddenly pick up themselves, put together a couple of victories scoring some goals. Then lampard comes into d starting line up and all of a sudden the whole team is disrupted and we lose. Wenever terry is out injured, we are better off without a leader on pitch than with lampard as stand in captain all in the name of so called experience. His inclusion in the line up disrupted our game play and ultimately costed us the match. We lacked leadership on pitch and there was no winning spirit. Who would drive the team when the so called stand in captain was the most useless player on pitch who couldn’t lead by example? Since d beginning of this season we haven’t won any big game where lampard played. He’s a legend who was good for chelsea but presently he’s nw more of a liability n the young chelsea team plays better without him than with him. We really need terry back.
