The Lampard effect

Yes, get it done. I was praying he’d stay and this has just brightened my day. The impending arrival of Frank but more poignantly Jody has breathed new life into the academy prospects and given real hope that they’ll get a chance to prove themselves in the prem.

If he does, this is like a 40 million pound signing. Highly rate him.
