    Do you think he's world class ?

    Reasons for him being world class ...

    He scores a ****load of goals from midfield 203 to be precise.

    Hes been instrumental in chelsea winning the premier league and f.a cup ...

    Assist record aint too shabby either

    Reasons for him not being world class....

    Most of his goals are either deflected shots,tap ins or penalties .

    Only once or twice have i seen him dominate or do anything special against a big team .

    When comparing him to other world class players like xavi and iniesta he falls short
    of being world class


    Hes playing in an average league

    IS he? no.

    WAS he? Yes, i believe he was. On the 'outside' of world class, but yes he was there imo.

    At his best, easily. People forget just how good he was under Mourinho and Ancelotti.

    At his best definitely. He didn't play well for England but he was never a true CM, playing him alongside Gerrard was never going to work. Neither really does the job of taking the ball from defence and distributing it, which is why we've had years of hoofball imo.

    He was second best in 2005. At his peak, and that was only behind Ronaldinho.

    Who decided this? So we can't have more than two world class players at any given time at a certain position?

    So by your definition, at least one of Cavani, Ibrahimovic, Falcao and Van Persie are not world class?

    Your definition is stupid because there's often an abundance of great players in certain positions. Throughout the 00's there was a ridiculous number of great attacking midfielders and at his best Lampard was among the best of them.

    He's an intelligent guy who knew to be in the right places at the right time and that self interest took first place before team interest would make him seem better than he is.

    Well, it's always going to be based on opinions. However, in his day (Under Mourinho/Ancelotti) I think he was unstoppable sometimes, and his stats show it, regardless of what type of goals they were. However, is he world class now? No. He's still decent, but not world-class. (May be slightly biased as I support Chelsea.)
