    I like Frank, but the other two could control games. Yes, Lampard is a more consistent goalscorer and as pointed out a few will be penalties, but he could never dictate the game through his own talent, only his goals on occasion.

    Don't think Defoe can cut it against the best anymore and Theo's pace and improvement of goals scoring has earned him the chance.
    I'd play 4-5-1 but that's me.

    Something involving penis pleasing or spooning would have fit right in too

    As Steve pointed out, Lampard has 40 more goals, a lot of which would have been penalties or free kicks, Scholes has never taken free kicks or penalties on a consistent basis, Gerrard has, but still to a lesser extent than Lampard. I think if you looked at assist stats, both Scholes and Gerrard would probably top Lampard.
    With that in mind, I wouldn't say that Lampard is quite at the level of Gerrard or Scholes.

    I'd firmly put him in 3rd though.

    I like Frank too, he's done great things for Chelsea. But like you said, never been a dictator of play.

    4-5-1 could work. I'd still have Theo up top.

    I don't trust Theo enough, he's not strong enough to lead a line on his own, especially internationally.

    He'd be crushed by Thiago Silva.

    Let's not forget Gerrard takes penalties aswell. I would definitely put him on the same level as them. Then it becomes a matter of opinion on the style of player you would want in your team

    But if I was to rank them then:-

    1. Gerrard
    2. Scholes
    3. Lampard

    But all 3 are on pretty much on the same level for me.

    I'd give him a chance in a friendly.

    Would of been good to have Sturridge in this game, he's been on top form.

    Would you go with Rooney then?

    Yeah I'd have liked to see Sturridge.

    I'd say yes, but I'd prefer to play Rooney just behind the striker, much like Dortmund did with Reus in the CL Final and allow him to operate there.

    Lampard has since 2002 though. And Gerrard didn't until a few years after. Once Murphy left really Even then, some games Gerrard wouldn't take them, like v Milan or Everton etc.

    It definitely does but when it comes down to ability, I think Lampard is edged out by both.

    I also agree with your ranking.

    I'm the same with Rooney, I don't want Defoe to play, I really think he's on his way down.
    And that's our only options due to injury.

    True, I'd probably play Welbeck if he was fit. I just prefer Walcott cutting from the outside, it's still where he scores all his goals even when put up top.

    I'd have shifted a load of players out by now anyway and only played 4-5-1, but tonight I'd probably stick Rooney up top.
