    Does the club name now change to “Frank Lampard’s Cheatski” in media-speak?

    Not really much experience in this back office team if it goes tits up

    Jody Morris, another former Chelsea midfielder, has moved from Derby with Lampard to take up the assistant coach role at Stamford Bridge.

    Ex-Blues coach Chris Jones returns to the club, while former Chelsea midfielder Eddie Newton and under-23s coach Joe Edwards will also join Lampard's backroom staff.

    Former goalkeeper Petr Cech, who played for Chelsea between 2004 and 2015, returned in June as the club's technical and performance advisor,while Lampard's former team-mates Didier Drogba and Claude Makelele have been linked with returns.

    Jody "9-11" morris as his no.2, this has car crash written all over it, getting all his inexperienced former mates to help him out, managers who have been around the block take time to pick and choose their backroom staff, Lampard with his very limited time as a gaffer only knows who he played with, I actually feel a little sorry for him.

    I don't. He's a part of the same machinery that's football's greatest fault - jobs for the boys, "Have to have played the game" culture. The same culture that got Alan Shearer and Tactics Tim jobs.

    He may be intelligent by footballer standards, but he's still significantly sub-normal by average population standards - even more so when you filter to those in elite positions in multi-£B value businesses.

    He is above average when it comes to IQ level.

    Have you measured him?

    I've heard him talk and thinking is clearly not his forte

    Oh, I had just paid attention to his actual score. Hearing someone talk is clearly a much better measure of their intelligence.

    In fact, you have just touched upon the most common misconception of footballers, and the cause thereof. When we, as humans, assess intelligence in other people, we tend to do this upon the level of eloquence and vocabulary in the other person. Since most footballers don't have much of a formal education, their vocabulary can be limited and they are therefore often perceived as being less intelligent.

    Where did you get his IQ score from and what was it?

    I don't judge the intelligence of footballers by their eloquence, I judge it by what they say.

    In our world it's more important how and what you say rather than what you do, that's why so many trumperyers get to the top.

    ???? Even on here, sorry if my use of "trumperyers" mystifies some, but lessons have been learnt and we need to work together to ensure a better service for all our valued readers in the future, as our primary concern is their satisfaction.

    I read that. That same doctor measured John Terry quite highly too.

    I've met John Terry a handful of times and if he's significantly above retarded I'll be amazed.

    The only article I found on John Terry's IQ states that Terry was in the top three of the Chelsea squad. So I guess Lampard was quite the outlier.

    Doesn’t Gerard Pique have a ridiculously high IQ too? He took the mantle from Lampard as ‘most intelligent footballer’.

    That does not say much when competing with the likes of Joe Cole.

    That’s why he needs a special parking space and doesn’t understand social etiquette

    Frank Lampard pinpoints where Chelsea struggled after manager's reign begins with draw
    Frank Lampard took charge of his first game as Chelsea manager on Wednesday but saw his team stutter to a draw

    Frank Lampard admitted it was a 'tough' start to his Chelsea tenure after seeing his side limp to a draw against Bohemians in their first pre-season encounter of the summer.

    The Blues were held to a 1-1 draw in Dublin on Wednesday night as Michy Batshuayi’s first-half opener was cancelled out by trialist Eric Molloy’s strike a minute from time.

    There were a host of other familiar faces on show alongside Batshuayi, with midfielders Danny Drinkwater and Tiemoue Bakayoko also getting run outs as Lampard played two different XIs in each half.

    But it was a sour finale after Molloy's late strike earned a draw for the Irish hosts and Lampard, who has returned to the club where he is considered a legend, is aware of the challenge ahead.

    He said: "It was a good run-out, we had good support and thanks for people turning out. It was a tough first game for us as we have not been back for long.

    "We've only been back just a few days so there had been some pressure on the lads and we have been working them very hard. I am pleased with the outcome.

    "Fitness was our issue but I wanted to stretch them a bit and put them under pressure.

    "This is what pre-season is all about and the quicker we get there, to the level we want, then the better. We wanted to win the game as you always do but it is not about that."

    The Stamford Bridge legend, however, praised his squad for their attitude since he took over the reins and is looking forward to welcoming Christian Pulisic to his squad.

    He added: "It is about individuals getting fit and pushing themselves to the limit and I thought some of the performances – particularly from the younger lads – was really good."

    "I have been really happy. We have high standards and we have bought that in. We need intensity in our game and I am pleased with the way their have worked and their attitude.

    "This game was very early but the other players are back other than the injured boys and Pulisic is not with us yet but you will see some of them at the weekend."

    It was Batshuayi, on the fringes under Antonio Conte and farmed out on loan by Maurizio Sarri, who hit the first goal of the Lampard era after just eight minutes in Dublin, lashing the ball home from close range after Kenedy’s shot was blocked in the box.

    He’ll be hoping there is more where that came from - and that Lampard will give him the chance to provide it.

    The home side were left happy, however, as trialist Molloy was rammed past substitute keeper Jamie Cumming to finish off a sweeping move in the 89th minute.
