On Saturday with his fantastic four against Aston Villa, Frank Lampard took his goal tally for Chelsea in all competitions to 151 and became Chelsea's 3rd all time top scorer. He is the Premier League highest ever goal-scoring midfielder with 124 goals and is 3rd in the Premier League's all-time assist table with 149 and counting. He has been described as the best midfielder he has ever worked with by Jose Mourinho and World Class by the other managers he has worked with. He is a true Professional, a Chelsea Legend. He truly is "Super Frank"

Lampard signed for Chelsea for 11 Million in the Summer of 2001 and it was a transfer that raised a few eyebrows at the time. Lampard had featured for West Ham but due to circumstances at the club decided it was time to move on. With Gus Poyet coming to the end of his time at the club Lampard was seen as an ideal replacement. At the time Gus' shoes were going to be hard to fill as in his time at the club, Gus had become a free scoring midfielder.

Lampard became a main-stay in the side in his first season under Claudio Ranieri and although was moved around positions in the midfield cemented his place in the team.

His first two seasons saw Lampard find his feet at the club and become comfortable with the calibre of players we had at the club. With 7 goals in all competitions from 53 appearances in his first season, and 8 goals in all comps from 48 appearences it was a solid first couple of seasons from Frank. Little did we know what the following seasons had in store for Lampard and for us all.

It was in his third season at the club that Lampard finally found his feet. With 15 goals from 58 appearences in all comps Lampard became the box to box scoring midfielder that we had all looked for to take the mantle on from Poyet.

His fourth season 2004/2005 saw Lampard hit the net 19 times in 58 appearances and scored "those" two goals at the Reebok that saw Chelsea win the League for the first time in 50 years. Lampard was a once more a major part in the Chelsea side the following season as we won back-to-back Premier League titles. He broke the 20 goal barrier for the first time with 20 in 50 appearances.

The following three seasons 2006-2008 Lampard scored 20+ goals with 21 in 62 2006-2007, 20 goals from just 40 appearances 2007-2008 and 20 goals from 53 appearances 2008-2009.

This season has already equalled Lampard's best ever season with just under two months of the Premier League still to play. He has scored 21 goals from 42 games so far which means he has scored 20+ goals in each of the last five seasons which is an amazing record which Strikers would be proud of.

Lampard has scored (to this point) 151 goals in 470 appearances which is amazing for a midfielder.

Lampard spoke of his achievements at Chelsea and said:

"I wanted to get there this season and Peter Osgood and Roy Bentley are two absolute legends of Chelsea history.I didn't expect to actually go past them on Saturday but I am very proud to do so and I will try to keep motoring on and scoring important goals I am very ambitious and try to drive myself on week in, week out but it is not possible to score that amount of goals unless you have good players putting some of them on a plate for you. I have certainly had that at Chelsea so I am very fortunate".
