Young Luke, leaving he is

Sounded promising at Coventry last season and now we are going to offload for 1.2m, are we broke? or is he not worth the time and effort to give him a shot this year, seems a little strange to not even give him a tryout. I for one would not mind seeing him as we seem a bit light at his position, or is this more paper talk with nothing behind it? and I need a change from Lamparditis.

If deals are being done maybe that could be seen as reassuring. You would have thought that if there was turmoil ahead then we would wait and see what the new manager wanted to do. But who knows? Maybe the plan is to continue with the plan until such time as Chelsea come calling. Nobody knows whether Lampard is Chelsea’s first choice to replace Sarri, or just one on their list of possibles, or not even that. Nor do we know what the outcome would be if they said they wanted him. He’s a smart bloke and I imagine he would want to know what the expectations would be if he took up the job. What would be an acceptable season for Chelsea with no Hazard and an embargo? Top half? Top six? Champions League?

We’re not paying near £1,2m. Might end up that with loads of add ons.

No matter who is in charge at Chelsea, or what state the playing staff is, the aim is always top 4, with a view to winning silverware.

Well that’s what would be in Lampard’s mind if he got the job Jorv. Would he be considered a failure after a season, get the boot and that end up being his one and only shot at managing Chelsea, with the odds stacked against him achieving success? Would he believe any guarantee they might give him that he would be allowed time to build something?

The "will he won't he" with Lampard should be the last thing on our minds when BJ is looking like a shoo-in for PM, (not that we can do much about either though)!

It looks as if Lampard is going too according to Sky News.

I think we all knew deep down that he would leave. Who do you want next Ramdini? My choice is 1 Jokanovic 2 Adkins 3 Monk.

Annoying distraction at the start of the season. We need someone with a bit of charisma who can attract decent players. That would definitely rule out Adkins.

I still wonder if Wenger might be interested in the challenge for a season. Not an upcoming manager, but likely to work well with the youth setup, teach them some valuable lessons and if he can get us up, leave us in good stead for a crack at the Premiership.
