Record label executive, Jude Okoye killed any hopes anyone might have had of popular defunct group, P-Square getting back together ever again. The group, during their time together, made serious waves across the continent and even globally as they consistently sold out shows and tours. […]
When he came on board at the beginning of the season as manager of the club he served for over a decade (Chelsea) many said the shoes were too big for him to wear.

He was knocked severally by the ever vibrant English press for bringing on rookies to play in a big club that won the prestigious UCL in 2012. Building a very young team and handing most of the kids first team shirts attracted more foes than friends to Lampard from among the fans of the club.
But after 10 EPL fixtures and three UCL games, it has dawned on all that Roman Abrahamovic made no mistake to go the way of other top clubs like FC Barcelona and Real Madrid who went for their ex-players like Pep Guardiola and Zinedine Zidane to build the clubs.
Today, Frank is living his dream as one of the young managers likely to return the sport to glory days by ensuring that young boys take up the mantle of leadership. Recall how Louis van Gaal built AFC Ajax in the mid-90s to a world class team. That tradition has continued with the Dutch giants till date.
Lampard surely is attracting huge attention to Chelsea and hopefully if he wins a trophy at the end of this season then, critics will eat their words as he will be taken more seriously. He is building a team for the future and by the time he is done, there will be no doubt that a new manager and maestro of the sport has stepped in to continue from where the likes of Sir Bobby Robson and Sir Alex Ferguson stopped.
Today’s away victory over Burnley builds the confidence of this team and confirms the foresight and tactical ability of Lampard. He may be leading Chelsea into a new era and reign as champions!
