With 211 goals and more than ten years experience, a Frank Lampard testimonial would be a fitting way to thank our record goalscorer and an icon of the most successful period in the club’s history.
Lampard left after not being given a new contract, he did not get a chance to make the emotional goodbye that others have had.
Even if we do sing his name during almost every game it is not quite the same.
At half-time of today’s game against Swansea, Lampard came on to say thank you for the fans having felt he did not have a chance to say goodbye.

This was a touching moment and our fans gave him an incredible reaction. Yet his accomplishments were so grand that anything short of seeing him with a Blue shirt on again during a Frank Lampard Testimonial against an iconic club feels like a letdown.
We like many Chelsea fans would like to have seen him pull on a Chelsea shirt one more time so why not let him do it.
Frank Lampard Testimonial or A Joint One?
Chelsea have been lucky to have had a spine of players that arrived just before or after Roman Abramovich bought the club that fired the club to glory. However, even those entitled to one that have left have not got one. If the club baulks at one for Lampard why not one for the players at the heart of Chelsea for nearly a decade.

A game to celebrate legends such as John Terry, Petr Cech, John Obi Mikel and of course Lampard, players that had a huge impact on the club winning trophies. It could be a game of nostalgia bringing back any players from that era that want to take part.
The purpose of a testimonial to raise money for a player in retirement has changed, but the sentiment attached has not, it is time that a Frank Lampard testimonial or similar was arranged.
We would be the first to try and buy tickets!
