Lampard’s ghastly Mooro/Terry comparison


Chelsea-v-Basel-Frank-Lampard_3005627Sorry everybody – I just can’t let this pass!

Here’s what Frank Lampard has had to say about the great Mooro and his personal bestie John Terry.

“It’s not easy to compare to Bobby Moore but in terms of the ability that they have on the football field I think the closest you could get would be John Terry in the modern day.

“He’d [Moore] take a moment and kick a ball about like I always used to do with my Dad at the time. I remember stories from my Dad telling me ‘this is the type of player you want to be, but also more than that this is the type of man you want to be’.”

I think the clue is in his Dad’s words: “the type of man you want to be’.”

I won’t go into details because we all know enough about Mooro’s lifestyle and Terry’s to merely say: “Shut up Frank and talk about things of which you actually have some knowledge because you were far too young to ever watch the great man.”

For the record Lampard was born in 1978 and Mooro played his last league game in 1977 – enough said!

Disgraceful comparison which makes Lampard a laughing stock!

    Agree. I think even the ‘great’ John Terry might be a tad embarrassed by his mate’s comments.

  • bubs says:

    Bobby was the greatest reader of the game, the only thing Terry was better than Booby was his heading ability, when you think Lampard played with Rio who had far more in common with Bobby he still was no where as good,
    The problem with comparisons is the time and the depths you look Bobby would have been able to work out how to handle players like Messi he had to with players like Best around,
    Terry would never been able to control the likes of best,
    Then there was the heavy ball the footwear and the state of the pitches.
    He was a genius but never looked anything but carm and this passed on to the rest of the team.
    Never forgotten no equal Frank no equal

    The type of man you want to be, certainly rules John Terry out then

  • Doughball says:

    Comparing Terry with the great Bobby Moore is like saying Nolan is as good as Pele.

    • sparrow says:

      Not really Doughball. Nolan may be past his best but he seems a decent enough chap unlike that amoral thug Terry.
      There can be nothing more insulting to a gentleman of the standing of Bobby Moore than to have a hooligan and chav like Terry compared to him. Terry is not fit to wipe his boots either as a player or a person.
