  • Happy Blue Year!

    Happy Blue Year!0

    The glum faces streaming away from the Emirates told their own story. With seven minutes remaining of Sunday’s London derby between Arsenal and Chelsea, the Gunners were comfortably in command. But when ref Craig Pawson blew the final whistle, it was Arsenal 1 Chelsea 2 – a last-gasp ambush that had manager Frank Lampard bear-hugging

  • Frank’s conundrum

    Frank’s conundrum0

    It’s the conundrum facing Chelsea manager Frank Lampard, and he knows it. When I asked him, at the most recent press conference at Cobham, for the answer to the ‘consistency’ mystery, he looked heavenwards and puffed his cheeks out.

Clubs have been reluctant to do more than window-dressing up to now. After all, a life ban on someone spending
