1 He is not Steve McClaren.
2 Even after a dull 0-0 bore draw with Israel, Ollie would still entertain us with his post-match interview. Whereas McClaren…
3 Ian Holloway could motivate a stone (although whether this is a big a feat as motivating a bunch of overpaid egotists is up for debate!)

5 He would have the balls to substitute Frank Lampard.

6 He’s not afraid to stick it to FIFA.
7 He wouldn’t be scared of picking David Beckham.

9 Imagine what he would if he won the World Cup…
10 He’s an all-round legend and we love him very much!

    no… without lampard you are even less of a team.. .its the manager and his tactics/formation that make the players look bad eg lampard…
    franks stats for chelsea eg assists/goals/passrate/tackles say everything… oh and compare them with a certain mr gerrard and then come back and see he deserves to be dropped

    Lampard is just a fat egotist,he’s an average player being made to look good by playing in a very good team,gerrard is a million times the better player
