There are times when old enmities go out the window, and this morning is one of them. Nothing matters more in life than the health of your family, so Frank Lampard’s race to be at his mother’s hospital bedside last night – thereby missing the Wigan game for Chelsea – was not only totally understandable, but laudable. The Lampards are a very close knit family and if you’ve read his autobiography, you will know how close to his mother Frank is . Mrs Lampard, according to the papers this morning, has conracted pneumonia and is in a very serious condition.
I hope all readers of this blog will join me in wishing her well and sending the whole Lampard family our best wishes.
