Lampard said: "If you play with two of those holding type players in there it would give me more freedom to get forward.
"If you play with one, there will be more responsibility to be involved in the midfield and maybe try to get a grip of the game rather than get in the box so often.
"Why have I not done myself justice in recent matches? I don't know. I'm coming up to 50 caps now and it is never a case of having a clear run when everything is going great.
"Sometimes you have to play an important part for the team, sometimes the ball doesn't go in the net for you, like at the World Cup, and that is part and parcel of being a footballer.
In experience of reading footballers talk b*llocks week in week out, this has to be the mother of all quotes. A midfielder heralded as the 'second best in the world' actually telling you that he needs two people behind him before he can go on and do his stuff.
Essentially, it just means that other than attacking and scoring goals, he doesn't do anything more than that and is afraid to get his shirt dirty. Oh how wonderful is that! Yet again this has proved my theory right about Lampard based on the article I wrote about England last Sunday. He's a technical player that does what he is taught well but other than that, he's basically sh*t and doesn't know anything.
Which also means that in the future if England plays a 4-4-2, Lampard will be out of equation because he needs two defensive midfielder which 4-4-2 doesn't provide.
The most ridiculous thing I've heard in a long while, hands down.
