If Chelsea keeps this up, perhaps all will be forgiven for Rafa?

Stueps, let him lose a few and he will be the next manager out

So what going on with Frank Lampard and his contract with Chelsea?

http://sports.nationalpost.com/2012/12/30/frank-lampards-brace-keeps-chelsea-alive-in-english-premier-league-title-race/

Dec 30, 2012
LIVERPOOL, England — Frank Lampard proved his enduring worth to Chelsea by scoring twice in a hard-fought 2-1 win at Everton on Sunday, keeping his team on the fringes of the Premier League title race.

Having fallen behind to Steven Pienaar’s goal after just 63 seconds, Chelsea had the 34-year-old Lampard to thank for securing a fourth straight win to maintain the momentum under interim manager Rafa Benitez.

The England midfielder, who has yet to be offered an extension to a contract that expires in June, headed in a 42nd-minute equalizer from Ramires’ cross and grabbed the winner in the 72nd by turning the ball high into the net from close range after Juan Mata’s shot was saved by goalkeeper Tim Howard.

The double will undoubtedly increase speculation about the future of Lampard, a mainstay at Chelsea since joining the London club in 2001. Injury has restricted him to 11 league appearances this season, but Chelsea hasn’t lost any of them and he has now scored six times.

“I know there is a lot of speculation and talk but I just want to continue playing,” said Lampard, one of the most prolific midfielders in Premier League history. “I will always have Chelsea in me for life.”
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

That is the nature of pro-football. You know how I felt when Clive Burnett left Malvern for Colts. Or when Ken Ramdoo and Lenny Alfonso left Essex for Malvern. We "played for the love of the game". What about when all them guys leave they clubs to join Police, Fires and DF.

  I agree and totally accept that, but SWP, to me, was different.  He didn't leave Chelsea as much as he was forced to leave.  The man was ridin' high and playing very well in the league when we acquired him from mancity and then Jose decide to marginalize the man to being a bits-and-pieces player.  To this day, Chelsea still looking for our wing backs to provide attacking width ( a tactic that Ivanovic has fallen madly and, quite often, foolishly in love with) after we totally turn our backs on players that can truly provide that width we looking for.....one of the things that totally confuses me about my side.

At the time Chelski bought SWp they didn't need him and he was a "luxury buy" in order to keep him out of the hands of other teams who were showing interest. Hence the reason he ate bench. If you remembered they buying players left an right because they could affor to and also as a way to kep players away from competing teams. SWP ran for the money and he got what he deserved-if I remembered at that time one of the teams who was chasing him may have been Arsenal or even Spurs. Same reason a Scott Sinclair eating bench at Citeh.

I would have bet money that Ba was cup-tied.. and lose it.

Already up front ahead of Torres.

Edit: cup-tied for Capital One Cup and the Europa League.

Ba is quality... been that way from the first time I saw him at West Ham about two years ago.  I think his inconsistency this year has been a function of the rise of Cisse, and him being unsettled.

To me he was never inconsistent...he just wasnt being played at centre forward for the first half of 2012 when Cisse arrived. He has always scored goals as a centre forward. I've always been impressed by him too, since his West Ham days (ironically the first time I saw him live was the day Torres finally scored his first goal for Chelsea). Thank god we have a proper striker now, if Ba stays fit and Benitez is brave enough to bench Torres, this team will rip up.

I read he has knee issues sometimes............still it will be good to have a physical threat up top again..........steups, it will be good to have a threat full stop...........I hope this is the end of having to watch Torres not being in striking positions again.....either by force....or exclusion....which ever comes first...........but den he didn't raise his game when drogba force him out of first string last yr so............

The only positive to take from last night was that, for the first time in his useless Chelsea career, Torres was booed off. Perhaps he'll take the hint, there's still 20+ days left in this transfer window.

And as for Benitez.....if he thought the fans would eventually accept him, he must have realised by now that it isn't going to happen any time soon. Deafening chants for Di Matteo last night. We dominated the game but there was absolutely no excuse for not bringing on Ba earlier, the decision to leave Torres on had the crowd livid.

I tempted to go pull some of the posts from back then lol.  I remember a woman cussing me and telling me I have all kinda tabanca over Torres  LOL  Liverpool have to live with setting the transfer record for an English player when they grossly overspend on Carroll... but in the end is Abramovich money that end up in Newcastle coffers, and we even convince West Ham to chip in ah portion too  ;D

Nah, ability-wise Torres wasn't a gamble... the issue was his attitude.  He noticeably shut it down for Liverpool and give up trying.  The disillusionment started with Rafa's sacking, continued when he got hurt, then benched for the World Cup, where he was largely marginalized in favor of the better-performing, healthier Real/Barca players. 

He barely bothered showing up for Liverpool after the WC, ironically the double against Chelsea in November 2010 being the one notable exception.  He showed his quality on both those goals, the gather, then finish (hitting the ball into the ground as Cech rushed out) on the first, then curling it inside the far post for the second.  Pure quality.  But by that time he was little more than a selfish, pouting shadow of himself.  Two months later he forced a move hours before the transfer window closed, handcuffing the club and causing the desperate grab for Carroll. 

That is what I and most LFC fans despise him for... quitting on the team (and he admitted as much later on) then saying he was staying at the start of January only to force a transfer last minute.  Just be honest, let the club take its time and set up a replacement player and be gone.
