Pellegrini could learn something from Frank Lampard

West Ham could learn something from former Hammer Frank Lampard junior. A photo of Frank’s non-nonsense player fine system has gone viral on social media this week.

Despite Lampard being in charge of Chelsea for his first season, he has implemented a hard-hitting fine table that hits first-team players hard in their pockets.

The fines include £2,500 for reporting in late for training and a further £2,500 for every further 15 minutes they are late for reporting for training at their Surrey base.

Miss the start of training itself and it will cost you a cool £20,000!   Lateness for any team meeting is charged at £500 per minute so oversleep for an hour it will cost you £30,000.

Failure to report an illness or injury 90 minutes before the start of training or a day off will cost players a fine of £10.000.

It would be interesting to compare the Chelsea fine system to West Ham’s own internal fines system but from previous leaks it doesn’t come close to this regime

  1. Lampard is making a mistake if he thinks being dictorian will bring success . Chelsea are doing remarkably well at the moment and hats off to Lampard . But the wheels have a habit of coming off at Stamford Bridge . I believe the best approach is to be human and understanding . But at the same time not too soft . Having said that , Pelligrini’s decisions are very hard To understand , if not absolutely incomprehensible . I can’t believe that dropping players has anything to do with discipline . It’s just pure stubbornness and a totally misunderstanding of what the fans want . Heavy fines would only serve to create an even worse atmosphere in the dressing room . Mark Noble is a player I have huge respect for but he should not have come out and openly criticize the managers tactics . It was only a short while ago he was singing Pelligrini’s praises . I think that criticism has injected doubt in the team over the manager . And thats apart from the doubts the fans have . Maybe his injury has come at the right time and lends opportunities for others to impress . That is of course if the manager lets it happen .

  2. I think it’s spot on with Lampard.
    All the fines are fair & realistic and just asks players to do what they are paid for or cough up !
    Sure the monies go to worthwhile local charities……….
    Modern foootballers up their own backsides far too much and get away with murder.
    In the real world, if you were late for work regularly you would be given a written warning and if it persisted, be dismissed !
    Well done, Frank !!
