Frank Lampard: Legend.

Recommended Posts

Its funny we talk about SFL having a 6 month renaissance with us but if we spoke about stevie G (2 years younger) playing the rest of the season at the scumbags we would call them desperate or worse. Maybe we are all too close to have an objective opinion about it being a good idea.

You could of course argue that SFL unlike StevieG is a serial championship winner so would add value where as slippy Steve just cost championships.

Agreed, we must not let hearts rule heads. Although Sheringham went on for 5 years longer, albeit with West Ham. Some exceptions prove the rule.

Not sure Sheringham played until 43? But either way, playing for a side with very different ambitions.

I say bring him back in January, as a player. Lets just call his absence a loan.

would have to be as a squad player, I am against bringing in older players with a limited future as it stifles other talent with a longer future

I say bring him back and play him as he might get nearer to the 222 goals I predicted in the thread that asked how many would Frank score for us.

Edward Paul "Teddy" Sheringham MBE (born 2 April 1966)

After leaving Manchester United at the end of the 2000–01 season, Sheringham re-joined Tottenham Hotspur, where he was a losing finalist in the 2001–02 Football League Cup. He spent one season at newly promoted Portsmouth, scoring the club's first Premier League goal, before joining West Ham United, where he helped the club gain promotion from the 2004–05 Football League Championship. The following season, Sheringham appeared for West Ham in the 2006 FA Cup Final, becoming the third-oldest player to appear in an FA Cup Final.

Sheringham is currently the ninth-highest goalscorer in Premier League history with 147 goals, and is the competition's 19th-highest appearance maker.[6] He holds the record as the oldest outfield player to appear in a Premier League match (40 years, 272 days) and the oldest player to score in a Premier League match (40 years, 268 days).

Sheringham was capped 51 times for the England national football team, scoring 11 times. He appeared in the 1998 and 2002 FIFA World Cups, as well as the 1996 UEFA European Championship.

Sheringham retired from competitive football at the end of the 2007–08 season with Colchester United, at the age of 42.[9] Having been appointed as the manager of Stevenage in May 2015, he registered himself as a player at the club in November of that year, aged 49.

Frank is 38.

Lampard coming back as a player would be embarrassing. Unless we want him in as a 'body' on the bench. But if that's the case, we can do better. He should hurry up and retire and get back to the club as a coach.
