Frank Lampard cut a frustrated figure in front of the cameras at Cobham this afternoon as he delivered his latest press conference. However, the board has really disappointed Frank Lampard and the Fans for not signing new players in January.
The interview itself was the shortest I have every seen and ended rather abruptly, Lampard was giving short answers and was clearly frustrated to report that Chelsea’s transfer window was now 95% shut, despite remaining diplomatic.
However, Lampard has been quite vocal about needing to improve his attacking areas during this window, but he must now face the prospect of continuing his season without reinforcements as the Chelsea board have failed to deliver once again. But unless there are any late surprises, there will be no new players arriving at The Bridge today, and Olivier Giroud will also be staying.
Chelsea fans have been giving their reactions on Twitter and are naturally quite annoyed by the fact that the club can’t even seem to back a club legend at the helm.

@CFCExtra said: “Frank has been let down by the club. What a shame”.
@CFCDaily also said: “If anyone defends the Board over Frank Lampard our greatest ever player. You aren’t a Chelsea Fan. Lampard has the same expectations as when he was here & he’s just proven the standards dropped. He asked for Short Term (Loans) #FailedToBackFrank #CFC”.
