Well, not exactly; more like "borrowing" an old but still functional squirt gun that your little brother picked up for free from a garage sale, and using that to annoy its previous owner in every way possible for an entire year. Here's my quick pre-apology to all Manchester City fans, and to Frank Lampard for bringing up events involved around him so often in this blog.

New York City FC is becoming an embarrassment to Major League Soccer and themselves. Six months on after announcing to the world that they had signed former Chelsea star to a two-year contact we hear today that Lampard has never signed for NYC FC. That his contract was with City Football Group.

Lampard's current stint with Manchester City was initially described as a loan deal from the new MLS franchise he appeared to join after he left Chelsea last summer, but it emerged on Thursday that he had not put pen to paper on any agreement with the New York club.

NYCFC is coming along as the second team in New York, and with all the blue, it's looking very Chelseaish to go along with NY Red Bulls and their Manchester red vibe.

Other than LA, which I guess won't count any more for a year or so, this now creates the first intra-city derby in MLS.
As all MLS teams do, NYCFC partners up with adidas for jersey and logo stuff, which is going on sale soon, apparently.

LAMPARD SCORES FOR CITY AGAINST CHELSEA - SUCH A WEIRD FEELING.

A Chelsea Fans Blog for Chelsea Fans at related • 0 views

When Frank Lampard scored yesterday I will be honest, I didn't know how to feel despite being against us to make it 1-1. Of course I was disappointed that we conceded a sloppy goal that cost us two points, and if it was anyone else I would feel like I normally do when goals go in against Chelsea.

Frank Lampard could feature at some stage against Chelsea tomorrow at Stamford Bridge and the focus will be all about him. Despite the fact that there is a game to be won, the media and press will focus on the fact that arguably Chelsea's greatest ever player, could return and severely dent our title push.

Listen, as with every single one of you Chelsea fans around the world, I love Frank Lampard, respect him as a man and as the greatest Chelsea player of all time (in my eyes).

Chelsea took a point from the Etihad this afternoon as a late strike from Frank Lampard (of all people!) levelled the scores after Andre Schurrle had given Chelsea the lead. On the whole, a draw is the right result.
It was always going to be a tight, tense game with the stakes being so high, despite it being this early in the season.

Frank Lampard has announced that he is to retire from International Football with England this afternoon and ends an International career that I personally believe has been underrated and unappreciated.

Lamps finishes his England career having made 106 appearances, scoring 29 goals for his country with his last appearance being in last summers World Cup in Brazil against Costa Rica as he captained the side.

Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed that Frank Lampard is set to join Manchester City on loan this week until he moves to America in January. I just wondered how you the Chelsea fan reading this post feels about Lampard's move?

If I am honest, the move has been expected ever since he signed a deal to join City's NYC franchise the New York City FC.

Frank Lampard – still proving them wrong

It looks like Frank Lampard will have to do it all again. An action that has become synonymous with his career, as much as his goalscoring feats.

It is of course silencing the critics and proving them wrong. It's often said that David Beckham did it better than anyone else in football, but Lampard's own dishing out of humble pie is equal to, if not more devastatingly delivered.

It's important to remember that by all accounts, Lampard wanted a two year contract (which he now has at New York City FC) but Chelsea insisted that he has a one year rolling contract.

With Yaya Toure likely to leave Man City during the busy holiday period and throughout January for international duty with the Ivory Coast at the African Cup of Nations, Man City would be left with just holding midfielders, Fernandinho and Fernando.
