    Arsenal fans will be happy. One less team to worry about.

    A presenter on 5Live yesterday described her time at Derby as “extraordinary”, which is ridiculous. No more extraordinary than Steve McLaren.

    Lampard set to integrate the Chelsea Academy and First Team squads, sharing facilities and having flexible training schedules.

    That's just taking the Chelsea women's game to ridiculous extremes.

    Don't get why they have done it, failed at derby and let's not forget was given 2 of the better loan players from the pl to use.

    He could do ok but certainly doesn't deserve the job

    I think it's madness. I know Rafa isn't popular down there, but he's exactly what they need right now. Lampard has no experience on the European transfer market and hardly revolutionized football at Derby last year. Next summer is going to be huge for them. If they don't finish in the top 4 this season, it's going to be even more difficult to recruit top players. This could set Chelsea back 5 years or more.

    They aren't going to recruit any anyway if their transfer embargo stands. After 2 years of that it will probably take them about 5 years to get back up.
    Look what happened to Liverpool and their recruitment after their ban following Heisel.

    Re: Lampard

    Has Lampard officially taken the Chelsea job yet?

    Is it a done deal or just what everyone expects?

    Phillip Cocu lined up to replace him at Derby according to this:

    They've already got loads of talent in their Academy, but they've never used it. This could be a great move by Chelsea. Just to give some perspective, Sarri never watched a single Academy or U23 game last season.

    I think they're nuts.
    Slated Sarri for finishing 3rd and winning the Europa League, same people are now saying it would be a fantastic achievement if lampard could sneak into the top 4.

    Have to feel for Gary Rowett

    Achieved exactly the same position with Derby as him but quit for the sh1thole of Stoke whilst Lampard gets Chelsea

    Good work by derby to have someone lined up so quickly, they must have been tapping up Wales bales for his top secret inside information

    Yeah, I gave them Phil's number. I'm glad to see it all worked out well

    I wonder if they feel like they've got a better manager out of it too

    Didn't Rowett get bombed out of Brum as well do doing a good job ?

    Think the lad has a talent and could do a job at a decent club if given a chance

    He was given a decent club in Stoke. He failed.

    It's a revolutionary, not evolutionary appointment. Definately worth a gamble IMO.

    Great news for Ampadu too. Whether he stays or goes out on loan to Villa for the season, Lampard will do what's best for him (and Wales).

    Re: Lampard

    All I'll say is that what Lampard has done since he has stopped playing does not justify him being put in charge of a club that was winning Champions Leagues not too long ago - definitely an appointment for the fans and possibly one for a notoriously fickle dressing room.

    Re: Lampard

    Imo, Derby played by far the best football in the championship last season. Problem was, they could only sustain it for short periods in most games. They only just missed out in the play off final, and had Villa under the cosh in the last 10/15 minutes. We, as City fans know only too well what that feels like.
    Maybe the transfer ban at Chelsea prevented them attracting a big name manager. I think Lampard could well prove the majority in this thread wrong.

    I have to agree.
    This transfer umbongo has come at exactly the right time for Lampard. He already has excuses in abundance upon failure and he has the security of knowing he will have much more tume than most.
