'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Lampard Can Only Count To Three

After admitting that Chelsea performed admirably in the second half at the Grove on Sunday, we've been inundated with Chelsea fans wittering on about recent success.

Well it appears Frank 'Ginsters' Lampard is now determined to get in on the act.

For some reason Lumpolard has it in for Arsenal and has thrown a few digs the Gunners way in the aftermath of Sunday's game.

Determined to mask his pain (must have been listening to Merlin) the chuby chubster claimed....

'Chelsea have got history!'

'Our short term history is better than anyone else and our long term history is one laced with great players, medals, cup competitions and leagues. Arsenal`s short term history isn`t very good so they can shout about it as much as they want.'


So apparently, according to Frank, the 'short term history' is that of three years. End of chat, no arguing.

I wonder why?

That wouldn't be because if you went any further back then his claims would look a little silly.

Since 2002 both Arsenal & Man Utd have won the same amount of titles as Chelsea, and whilst Chelsea have added two league cups to their list the Gunners have lifted three FA Cups and completed an unbeaten season and Utd have gained an FA & League cup victory.

So when you look at it, it's all a matter of how far you can count.

Or want to.

LOL rocky, I love the title. I read that along with his other comments. Simply shows a lack of class from him.
prits
From the look of his face in that picture I'm giving him far too much credit.
Rocky7
"Ooonnnnnnneeeeee, Ttttttwwwwoooooooo........that's all I know sir"
Rocky7
He really should just get bummed by terry and stop talking...
Goofle
I can still hear his characterless manboy drone wittering "The S*n - we love it", makes Beckham seem like Chomsky, chavvynob.
nikolaijns
Right you are Frank, and our 2003-4 history is better than anyone else, and our long-term history is full of trophies and class.
Andy-bayor
Right you are Frank, and our 1997-8 history is better than anyone else, and our long-term history is full of trophies and class.
Andy-bayor
Totally forgot about our 2001-2 history Frank - better than anyone else, and our long-term history is full of trophies etc etc...
Andy-bayor
Did he play on Sunday?
Little Dutch
the only time i saw him is when he took out cesc and when he cryed on john terry( also his lover according to the gay chelski video)
gunnerkid107
To be honest, I have to refute the suggestion that Frank can't count past three. I saw him in Abra Kebabra last week and he was ordering in quantities far in excess of three.
Little Dutch
Don't be too hard on him LD, he was tired as he was busy brushing up on his history the night before.
Andy-bayor
If he wants to learn how to count to ten someone should number each roll of flab under his moobs.
iceman10
Well if Abramovich leaves this summer Lampard wont have time to count past three before chelski have a winding up order in their hands.
Ashburton Gooner
It's like the husband who has a history of wife-beating, but it's ok he was a good husband because he's started doing the washing up in the last few days.
Andy-bayor
If he learns to count to 4 then he can talk about how many league cups they have won. But if he sticks with 3 then that allows him to talk about league titles & FA cups. He really is a bit simple isn't he. Why did he leave west ham again?
Ashburton Gooner
but you've won feck all in the last two years :-)
merlin
I can see the class oozing from Arsenal if this site is anything to go by. Such wit. Such casual homophobia also. Sickening.
EuroBlue
Yeah Euroblue your site is so incredibly classy you've recently been pulling articles off because they were so deranged and hate filled, go away you hypocrite.
iceman10
And I tell you what none of our fans talk about Hillsborough or Hysel to score points in an argument what a horrible little hypocrite you are. Terrible.
iceman10
see merlin, fortunately, us football fans have a slightly longer memory which goes beyond 2 years. I can understand if thats a challenge for Lamps though.
prits
players taking after managers it seems first obi then lampard soon drogba will be saying if you look at recent history im a better striker than henry...
mish
Looking at recent history, I wrote three articles yesterday. That makes me more prolific than Tupac Shakur.
Little Dutch
Can I add that I chatted up a gorgeous blonde this afternoon, does that make me more of a player than Hugh Heffner?
iceman10
Depends Iceman, did you tell her you had a bigger 'club' than the competition?
Andy-bayor
Hes Scored 21 Goals and has 20 Assists sofar this season....not bad for a fat bloke eh?? Hows your season coming along? LOOOOOL!!!!
Blue is the colour
All that and he got dropped by England and performed like an 86 year old without his Viagra at Anfield!
iceman10
She was gorgeous Andy, better than any girl ive ever seen (like Angelina Jolie mixed with Jessica Alba), I took her out for dinner and brought her a couple of drinks.....cost me 350 million but at least now I can say im a bigger player than Hugh Heffner.....can anyone spare a tenner!
iceman10
^hahahahahahHAHAHAHAH LMAO.
Youngest in Charge
Chavs trying to give us a lecture about class!!! Priceless.
Rocky7
History, history, history. That's all you Gooners talk about. Well, a well known scholar once wrote,"That is because, in some sense, "history is for losers," meaning that only when a place has passed its prime does it begin to be concerned with its past." Face it, as little as we won, your still losers this year (and the past 2!) You'll be no better than 4th next year and you can vbe voyeurs like AW when we win the quadruple next year !
USA
The guy is an idiot. The reason why he says things like he does is cos he cant read or understand anything except what John Terry says. Which normally is F**k Off you stupid fat T**T. Frank takes that seriously.
themadafrican
Why is it that all english footballers are so ******** stupid. they come from a country with much better education than the likes of Brazil, Argentina, Nigeria or the Cote'd Ivorie but compare the intelligence of Terry to Kolo, Ashley Cole to Clichy, Carrick to Gilberto, Joe Cole to Rosicky, Owen to Martens, Beckham to anyone anywhere, Gerrard to Xabi Alonso. These footballers are all illiterate, Joey Barton is the worst case scenario but all of these blokes Fat Frank and Robbo included are just as much white trash but with less balls than young Joey. What is wrong with them? at least Eboue has an excuse for his stupidity.
Ozi Gooner
I forgot Rooney, both Ferdinands, Defoe, Jenas, Dyer, Bowyer, Pennant, both Nevilles etc, you get the point.
Ozi Gooner
USA, do you understand the meaning of the word history? Fat frank decided to open his mouth yesterday, well as far as I'm aware chelski didn't win any trophies yesterday at all. That means all chelski's achievements are also history, so who is it that actually brought the subject up? Lets face it anyway, wherever we finish next season or the season after will be achieved, wherever chelski finish will depend on how much cash the manager is given. Says it all really.
Ashburton Gooner
We cant compare Frank's role to Henry at arsenal, to Ronaldo at Mancs and Gerrad at Liverpool. The are star players who can win any game and this Frank ******* is a useless crap who should move on to rugby. Arsenal have a better history. Besides the last two titles when last had Chelsea taken it.
Zimbolicious
For sale: 1 Ikea plastic Trophy cabinet, 350 million.....any takers?
iceman10
I have some history for Klump Lampard: No team in English football history has ever spent 75 million in the close season and failed to win either the champions league or premiership. That outlay makes them the biggest losers in English football history. Previous to this it was Manchester UTD who in the season they purchased Veron and Van Nistlerooy won neither of the big pots at a cost of around 50 million. Congratulations Chelsea, good luck with that guard of dishonour tonight.
iceman10
"short term history" surely thats a bit of a contradiction?
Jacky B
I will be solidly behind the Mancs in the FA cup final. And the big spenders will marvel at the Carling cup in which they beat our youngsters. Stupid losers
Zimbolicious
Jacky B, not as big a contradiction as using chelsea and long-term history in the same sentence :).
prits
USA - history is ALL we talk abt? Man, u chavs break me up. This article was only coz Lamps brought it up, and last time I checked, he was still a chelsea player. So unless, he defected to arsenal and no one knows abt it, I suggest we aint the only ones talking history.
prits
Lamps should just shut up and concentrate on assisting the mancs on a lap of honour tonight. What a shame - helping others celebrate the title when you splashed all those millions
Zimbolicious
Lamps wants to move to Arsenal now we have a Michelin star chef in the new canteen.
hatespur
hatespur, I think you'll find he's more into cans of corned beef
Andy-bayor
or better still as a ball boy
Zimbolicious
i hate lampard, i think he is quite the dirty little fella on the quite.. there seemed to be alot of bad blood between him and cesc on sunday and lampard was moaning, doing sly challenges and my respect for him is now around the 1% mark.. is just goes to show how fickle the boy is and how little he has between his ears. even beckham is coming across as more intellectual now !
PUREGOLD
Bummybumbummerbummy!
Goofle
Yes PG I've noticed how sly he is too but I was happy to see the way Cesc refused to be cowed by him. Frankie was always more of a 'driver' than a 'skill' player anyway, so I rated him that highly. Like him or not, I felt that Gerrard was always a superior player (unless of course you count pin-ball type free-kick goals as skill).
Andy-bayor
Lets hope Fabregas can add up to 3.. 2 league goals, + 1 league own goal...3! :)
JCFC
I hope so JCFC becuse at least then he'll be able to count all the League titles that your club has ever won!
flv
I'm not a fan of Myles Palmer's, but did you read this on ANR?
THe Police have interrogated Frank Lampard about the burglary at Reina's house. It appears that Lampard doesn't have an alibi between 7.30 and 9.30 PM Tuesday night!
Gaga
No Jacky B, short term history is a contradiction, but the proper term for it is an oxymoron. And it's funny you noticed; a bit bright for a Spud, I say!
Gaga
frank "WOODCHOPPER"lampard the most overrated footballer in the world your a Hack and you have the brains to match, C list midfielder who can learn a thing or 2 from the maestro cesc PINBALL FREEKICK SPECIALIST give me a break!
