One of the strangest things about Frank Lampard’s time in charge of Chelsea was how tough it was to determine if he was actually a good coach, but it’s starting to become clear that he’s not cut out for the elite level.
They keep throwing money at the team in an effort to give him such a strong squad that his tactical deficiencies can’t be shown up, but they’ve been thumped by a Covid-hit Man City team in the first half today.
City are simply cutting through the Chelsea defence at will and Lampard might even consider himself to be lucky that it’s only 3-0, so there will be serious questions asked about his future now.
Plenty of the Chelsea supporters have had enough at this point, and they are pleading for a change to be made:
Frank is tactically clueless.
Tuchel? Allegri? Favre? Sarri?
Somebody save this club! ??

It looks like the goodwill he built up as a player is growing thin and he could even damage his legendary status with the club if this goes on much longer, so it might be wise to let him go and bring in an experienced replacement who should be able to get more out of the squad.
