He's got a lot to learn. Let himself down badly in the incident with Klopp. The guard came down and he ended up acting like a big kid.

I don't mind Lampard, though I dislike Chelsea.

However I didn't think he did that good a job at Frank Lampard's Derby. They finished in the same place in the league as they did the previous season with one fewer point.

Furthermore, he didn't seem to be building anything: their success seemed to depend on loan signings from Liverpool and Chelsea. I think this showed in Derby's poor first half of the season.

Of course, if he'd have won the playoffs, it would be a different story, but that match has a fine line between absolutes.
Agree completely.

'potential with Derby?'..... He finished in the same (or similar) position to Rowett who was sacked.

It's not like he inherited a poor side. They also had Mount and Wilson arguably two of the best loans in the champo.

Doing a decent job at Chelsea, but his season with Derby was much like any other season for Derby.
They're usually in and around the play-offs.

I don't mind him though, good to see young English managers at top clubs.

I think he will be pleased with the season, and the fans too. Due to the transfer ban there were few expectations and a champions league finish and a cup final, and the champions league last 16. (Which incidentally they have been in far longer than Liverpool who were knocked out way back in March ;):p).

I think he comes across well, but exactly as stated above let himself down with the Klopp incident. Spoke well after the cup final defeat, and arguably a lot went against him in that game.

His Derby spell I agree with everything Frozen Horse said.

He is a fraud - but he gets an easy ride from the press coz he's inglish.

What happened with Klopp?
