Carlton Cole: “This is the year of judgement for Lampard”
“Lamps is a very good morale-boosting manager for his teams.
“I think he has a good support network around him obviously with Jody Morris, and his mate Joe Edwards as well. That will be important this year as he has had money to spend.
“This will be the year that he is judged. I know Frank said there was a lot of pressure on him last season, but there will be more now because he has spent money now which puts him in with all of the Premier League big boys in terms of managers who have invested in the team. I hope it goes well for him.”
