Ahead of England's European Championship qualifier against Wales this weekend, the press have decided alot of the attention on our Chelsea boys. First of all it was JT getting the Captaincy back and now it's a possible end to Frank Lampard in an England shirt.

For me and I know some people will not agree with me, Lampard has been stifled in an England shirt and we haven't really seen his full potential. We all know Frank has been a 20+ goal-a-season midfielder in a Chelsea shirt but we haven't seen anything like that playing for England, which is shame really. I know for your national side you are playing with the other best players in the League and the constant debate of Lampard/Gerrard and can they play together has rumbled on and on.

If I had been the England manager then I would utilise the players at my disposal playing to the best of their ability which would be in a 4-3-3 formation with a holding midfielder that allows Lampard and Gerrard to push forward to support the front man (Rooney).

Of course England have fantastic youngsters coming through to the first team and to see the older players replaced is only natural. If Frank Lampard is dropped from the England set up (which I would find hard to believe at the moment) then it will only prove to be a fantastic benefit to Chelsea and if anything could extend his career at the club.

I said not to believe the reports of Chelsea getting rid of him yesterday as I believe Frank has a couple of seasons left in his legs yet.

He still is one of the best all round midfielders in the game and is still a very important part of the Chelsea team!.
