Frank Lampard in the Champions League

Chelsea fans woke up with a major headache yesterday morning, as a result of their team going down to a late Newcastle winner in Saturday evening’s Premier League match up.

Blues boss Frank Lampard, the coaching team, and the players will be suffering similar aches as they totally threw away a game that looked a dead cert three points.

Chelsea were all over Newcastle, who’s game plan was to heavily defend, close their eyes, and hope for the best!

As frustrating as it was, it was up to Chelsea to break down a defensive low block, but they had no answers and as always this season, looked entirely clueless as how to break it down.

With The Blues dodgy defence looking especially vulnerable from crosses this season, there was always a good chance that the home side could nick a goal, and that they did, painfully, right at the end of the match.

The look on Lampard’s face at the end of the match said it all, he is a man that needs help, in the shape of better attackers and new additions THIS MONTH, none of this wait until the summer rubbish.

Nobody can tell me that there aren’t players available right now who can come in and improve this team, because there absolutely is.

Make no mistake, Lampard will be knocking on the office door of Chelsea Director Marina Granovskaia this morning, with the pair needing conclude a number of new player signings within the next 11 days, otherwise run the massive risk of losing out on Champions League football, and all the financial rewards that it brings.
