Lampard hopes to work with club for a 'proper' goodbye to the fans

Gareth Copley

How do you even begin to say goodbye to a Legend, to a man who's practically become synonymous with Chelsea Football Club over the last 13 years?

It's a question many of us are pondering at the moment, I'm sure.  And it's a question that Frank Lampard himself is apparently pondering as well.  Knowing the character of the man who's given the vast majority of his professional career, all his heart and all his dedication to us, that's hardly surprising.

If you're unfamiliar, cfcuk is the unofficial fanzine of Chelsea, available on matchdays outside of Stamford Bridge, by mail, or online, and there's little reason to doubt the veracity of these comments.  Not to mention, I want to believe that Chelsea will have a proper sendoff for one of our all-time greatest players, and not have things end with just a story breaking on Sky News.

The last testimonial match we've held was for Gianfranco Zola, in August of 2004.  If nothing else, I believe it will soon be time for another one.
