Frank Lampard Quotes
"A lot of things happened when I left there, and to be fair they treated me really bad, and now I have to play against them so I don't have any feelings for them at all." "Barcelona are my favourite team in Spain, let's put it that way." "But to be fair, Arsenal are a quality side. They're not were they are by chance - they are not top of the league and unbeaten because they are a bad side." "But we have the players and, as we have shown against good opposition this season, we're an extremely difficult side to live with at home." "But what club wouldn't welcome the chance to strengthen their side, what club would turn down the resources Chelsea have?" "Even with the quality of players that we have, they're an extremely hard side to break down and once they get on top of you, you find it difficult to stem the flow of attacks." "I admit I was somewhat concerned when we started to sign so many players - naturally you are going to worry about whether you can retain your place in the side." "I can't stress the importance of working hard enough, work on all aspects of your game. If you does that and you have the ability, you'll come through." "I come from a football family which has really helped." "I do want my girl to be bilingual, and Ellen wants her to speak Spanish and be in touch with those roots." "I don't know how we would have done with Ranieri, it's a hard question to answer, but I think we have moved on since we changed manager." "I don't know if we'd have been as dominant as we were last season. The new things, the new ideas the manager brought in everyone took them on board so well. He is special." "I fancy our chances at the European Championships." "I get asked that a lot and I really don't." "I learnt for a while and then I stopped, and now I'm picking it up again. I practice with the Spanish lads and with my missus indoors." "I never relax on the year before. Every year I want to get more out of myself so I use it as a driving force, rather than a pressure thing." "I think as far as kids go, you just have to work hard. Work on your skills, keep focused." "I think at times he has taken some unnecessary stick, but no matter how much money you spend things just don't come together overnight." "I think every player enjoys praise and I have had to work extremely hard on the training ground to bring my game together." "I think I work harder on the pitch, I cover more ground and my passing is more accurate." "I think it was in Moscow last year and I got changed for training the day before we played Moscow, but the fact is they actually wanted to do John's, me and John were next to each other and they did mine by mistake. John had done them I think. So yeah it is true." "I think we have proved to people that we are a very good side - all that's missing is a trophy." "I think when you have spent the money we have, it's bound to bring its own pressure. The players have shown that they can handle that though." "I'm happy here, and why change when you love the club and the club's in a really good position right now." "I'm really happy here. I think anyone who knows me well, and the fans too I hope, they know that I love the area, and the bond that I've had with the fans has been fantastic." "If I could have anyone in the world, it would be Ronaldinho. He's fantastic, I love watching him. He's a player the players love to watch. He can create, like he created here, out of nothing. If I had the choice of anyone in the world, I'd probably pick him." "In a way, I've thrived on the competition, perhaps it has made a better player because of it." "It has been helped by the exceptional coaching staff at Chelsea and a very supportive manager in Claudio Ranieri." "It would be nice to think that we can bring the unbeaten record to an end and at the same time, and more importantly, close the gap on them at the top." "It's a great opportunity for us to gain revenge. I don't think a game against them so quick has been more welcome." "It's bad enough when you go out of the competition but to the same opponents four seasons in a row is a bit hard to stomach - you wonder whether we're ever going to beat them in the FA Cup." "It's difficult to describe words to describe how good Henry is. Not only does he have outstanding pace and a great eye for goal, but it's difficult to know how to mark him and work out where he's going to be on the pitch at any given time." "It's gut-wrenching." "Living in London, English will come very easy for her but we do want to make sure that she keeps up with the Spanish." "More than I could ever imagine when I first came here. I came here basically as a West Ham boy, and I'll leave here as a Chelsea fan for life." "Most strikers, or good ones, are exceptional at certain parts of their game, but Henry seems to have the lot. In my book, he has probably been the most outstanding player of the season so far." "Naturally, you would expect Thierry Henry to be back in the side and that's a frightening prospect." "Obviously, it has taken time to work with the players around me and with so many new faces coming in the summer, in a way it's been more difficult." "Of course it is going to be difficult for any player to get in the Chelsea side no matter who they are." "Of course, there will be few people who are sympathetic but you don't become a great team overnight, no matter how much money you have at your disposal." "People talk about France, our opening opponents but I would be surprised if they weren't slightly nervous about meeting us." "Ranieri would get quite loud, quite vocal, and he (Jose) can do that too, but he's more to the point. Rather than standing there shouting, he'll sit down and at half time he'll stand up and say his bit." "Remember, every team wants to beat Chelsea, probably even more than Manchester United and Arsenal because they believe we have had an unfair advantage." "The advantage does lie with us because we're at home and if we can't motivate ourselves for this match then we can't motivate ourselves for any match. I think the crowd will be up for it as well." "The history and the players, you know, when you're growing up there's always a team abroad that you like and I always liked Barcelona, but no." "The second that ultimately knocked us out of the cup, I think we could have done better. But that's life - no point sulking, you just have to get on with it." "There's so many kids out there and it's such a cut-throat world. I've seen a lot of my mates, you know, who were better players than me at a certain age, and they're not in football now." "They cut my pants." "They're a very offensive team and even without Thierry Henry they can still do you damage all over the pitch." "To be fair to Chelsea, there was nothing we could have done about the opening goal - maybe we stood off Jose Reyes and allowed him room to take a shot but the goal was exceptional." "To be honest, it's a game we can ill-afford to lose at this stage of the season. If we start losing sight of them now, it will be extremely difficult to make up the points." "Training's completely different now. It used to be a lot of running and work without the ball. Now it's all with the ball, which any player loves." "We are still competing for the title, we are still in Europe and at this stage I think it's extremely unfair to be too critical of the manager." "We started well enough, with a good goal from Adrian Mutu, but we just seemed to fall away when we should have really pushed forward looking for a second goal." "When I came to Chelsea from West Ham there were certain parts of my game I felt I needed to improve and I like to think that I have now shown dramatic improvement." "When you are playing with world-class individuals, when you are on top of your game it makes it look even better."

"When you look at the calibre of players in the England squad and their ability, why should we go into the tournament fearing anyone?" "When you take a lot of stick you want to ram it down people's throats." "There is such a belief in the squad that we could really do something. [On Euro 2004]" "Having grown up watching Barcelona, Elen gets a bit annoyed watching me if I don't do flicks and tricks like Ronaldinho. I have to explain you can't do that all the time in a game!" "I bought Luna two Chelsea kits, snuck them into the house and put her in one. Elen laughed but took it off and they haven't been out of the drawer since." "There's a few ugly ones. Carlo is probably the best looking [on chelsea players]"
