Thomas Tuchel has justified Chelsea’s decision to sack Frank Lampard



Cutting ties with club legend Frank Lampard in January was pretty much the most controversial thing Chelsea could think of doing.

Results and performances were pretty dire, but this was Super Frank. He’s synonymous with Chelsea and was brought in as the man capable of rebuilding the entire culture around Stamford Bridge. Offloading him was always going to spark a civil war among fans.

Despite club owner Roman Abramovich’s rare statement thanking Lampard for his work, that civil war is exactly what we got, and things escalated to a new level when former Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel was named as his successor.

A divisive manager himself, Tuchel’s appointment was one which needed to bring success. If you’re going to bin off Lampard, end the long-term rebuild project and return to the hired-goons phase, you better see significant improvement immediately.

To both Chelsea and Tuchel’s credit, we have seen exactly that.

Since Tuchel’s first interview as Chelsea manager, the optimism towards him has been growing. The German seems to have all the right answers to every question and has a knack of making you buy into what he is saying.

Lampard had a similar approach in the media, but what sets Tuchel apart is we are seeing results on the pitch as well. It’s not just empty promises with a call for patience. Chelsea are genuinely good at football again.

In Tuchel’s 11 games in charge, Chelsea are unbeaten. That includes wins over Tottenham, Atletico Madrid, Liverpool and Everton, as well as a goalless draw with Manchester United. These are Chelsea’s direct rivals, and none have got one over on them.

That’s perhaps the biggest contrast between Lampard and Tuchel’s Chelseas. Lampard did not manage to beat a top-ten side before his season was brought to an end in January, whereas Tuchel hasn’t lost to one.

Not only are Chelsea winning those games, but they’re doing it in style. The Blues are defensively resolute – something Lampard’s side never figured out – and are passing their way through teams with devastating efficiency.

They’re not the finished article yet. The creativity isn’t always there and some of the bigger names – Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech – all still need that patience Lampard was begging for earlier in the season.

However, with Tuchel it feels like that patience will be rewarded. There are clear signs of where Chelsea are going these days, and results on the pitch are showing that.

Down in tenth towards the end of Lampard’s reign, Chelsea are now flying high in fourth, and most rival fans would agree that they look like sealing a spot in the Champions League. Teams around them are faltering, but the Blues are just getting started.

Tuchel has addressed almost all of the weaknesses in Chelsea’s game and has offered us the progress which Lampard promised we would see in phase two of his plan.

Lampard insisted Chelsea wouldn’t be title contenders this season, but they would show signs of blossoming into a genuine contender ahead of launching an all-out assault on the trophy next year. Super Frank didn’t get that far, but Tuchel has.

Every Chelsea fan will admit seeing Lampard’s empire tumble around him was a painful sight, and if you asked supporters whether they would rather enjoy this kind of success under Lampard or Tuchel, the club’s all-time top scorer would win by a landslide.

However, reality got in the way of that dream. Chelsea needed a change, and Tuchel has brought that. It wasn’t the easiest decision to make, but it could not have been a better one.


VIDEO: Bullets rent air as hoodlums attempt to overrun police station in Orlu



Despite the build-up of security in states in the South East, hoodlums whom the federal government claim to be members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and its security outfit – the Eastern Security Network (ESN) – seem to be more endearing.


In this video monitored by, the hoodlums stormed a police station in Orlu, one of the biggest towns in South east Nigeria, engaging the officers on duty in a gun duel.

Breaking: What God told me about Sunday Igboho, Nnamdi Kanu – Primate Ayodele



The Leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has revealed what God told him about the Yoruba Fighter Freedom, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho and the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.

The cleric said that God revealed to him that Nigeria will break up, but not through Nnamdi Kanu or Sunday Igboho.

The cleric said some powerful forces like the spirit of Nigeria’s nationalist; Abubakar Tafawa-Balewa would lead to Nigeria’s peaceful break-up, Daily Post reports.

He warned that if Nigerians fail to appease Tafa-Balewa’s spirit and these other powerful forces, the country will break up peacefully.

Primate Ayodele, however, urged the government not to ignore the cries of IPOB and those agitating for the Oduduwa Republic because that would also lead to the country’s disintegration.

According to Ayodele: “The spirit of Igbo is no more in Nigeria, and since their spirit is no more in Nigeria, the country will break peacefully.

“Some people like Tafa Balewa were killed, the spirit of Tafawa Balewa is fighting, why will we not appease his spirit? Instead, we say Nigeria should be in unity; we can’t be in peace or unity again.

“Nigeria will just be facing one problem to another. There will always be problems and that is the fact.

“We need to realize that Nigeria needs many prayers to survive this situation and for sustainability. The moment we ignore God, then the country will collapse.

“It’s not this IPOB, Oduduwa, that will break Nigeria. There is a powerful force that will break the country if we don’t appease it.

“If we don’t do what is necessary, Nigeria will break. Many people don’t want it, but when you go to the divine realm, do you know what is going on there? Many people have died as a result of injustice in Nigeria, so what is going to happen is that Nigeria will break peacefully without fighting or making noise.

“IPOB are making points, the people of Oduduwa Republic are also making points, and if the government neglects these, it will happen suddenly.”

“Nnamdi Kanu is not the person who will actualize this, not that he will die, but the thing will happen in a surprising way.

“Everybody will keep quiet, but some forces will stand to be fighting it, saying no. Two things are involved: either Nigeria is restructured, which we know will not favour many people or break up. It’s either we go back to true federalism, or we break up; any of these issues is going to be better for the country, so said by God not by man.

“Another thing is that only God can stop Nigeria from breaking up; the pathfinders of this country are tired of our co-existence.
