Richard Redmond posted a topic in The Chelsea ForumFrank Lampard's last season with the club can see him eclipse Bobby Tambling's 43 year old Chelsea goal scoring record of 202 careeer goals for this club. Such a feat would be simply outstanding. Whilst acknowledging that players play more games nowadays and that both fitness and medical provision are vastly superior to what they were a half century ago, the fact that Frank has always played in midfield, and not as a striker, is sensational. Frank is a Chelsea legend, in the true sense. We can do our part to help him reach and pass the record by our continued efforts to cheer and encourage him on to the record at every game he plays in during 2013. Frank deserves the record and we deserve to be able to crown him as our best ever goal scorer and, to put it simply, to acknowledge him as one of the finest box-to-box midfielders ever to have graced the English game. The stats currently are (after Southampton away in the FA Cup 3rd Round) : All-time top goalscorers - Competitive, professional matches only 1 Bobby Tambling 1959–1970 202 2 Kerry Dixon 1983–1992 193 2 Frank Lampard 2001–2013 193 4 Didier Drogba 2004–2012 157 5 Roy Bentley 1948–1956 150 5 Peter Osgood 1964–1974 & 1978–1979 150 Note re Appearances : Frank is also in line to take over 3rd place in the all time appearances stakes this season.
