Of course, Lampard has a couple of reasons for hating AVB: the attempt to relegate him prematurely to the reserves; and the fact that Uncle 'Arry was given the elbow so the Portuguese Unspecial One could land the job.
Frank slams the appointment, sings the praises of Redknapp, and finishes by saying, "AVB didn't do well at Chelsea but it was not for the want of anyone trying."
"He wanted to succeed, he wanted to do it his way. But it just didn't work. Not because of any battle between me and him, there was a lot more to it than that.
"He had his plans for the team and that meant me not playing as much as before. That was just one part of it, the problems were far bigger and broader than that.
"But as a player you learn off every manager whether they are good, bad or indifferent. I definitely learned in different ways from Andre. It was an interesting time."
The trouble is, Lampard and Terry know quite a few of the Tottenham boys, and they will be dropping poison in their ears at every opportunity. Get ready for a player revolt if the season starts poorly! AVB had better tell the sulky PMT VDV to FO ASAP if he doesn't want a premature P45!
