Frank Lampard sighting at Galaxy game fuels speculation

Not all the chit-chat and buzz Wednesday at the Home Depot Center was over Omar Gonzalez, the vital defender who returned from winter injury.

There was also a significant flutter about a certain England international who watched the contest from the AEG suite, alongside David Beckham (who was suspended for Wednesday’s loss to Philadelphia):

Frank Lampard had the Twitter monster a stompin’ with his surprising appearance in Southern California.

The 34-year-old midfielder has been linked to the Galaxy for some time. He may not be quite the midfield presence of the Chelsea squads from a few years ago,  as he made a record 164 consecutive Premier League appearances for the Blues. Still, he’s a quality midfielder who can still do the business in one of the world’s top associations. That means he could surely get the job done in MLS.

Trouble is, one of the Galaxy’s three biggies (Landon Donovan, Robbie Keane or Beckham) would have to leave in order to absorb the longtime Chelsea man (who is no longer an automatic starting selection at Stamford Bridge, which is one of the reasons he may be in for a change of professional addresses.)

    What? He can’t find a pub league he fancies in England?

    The wonderful MLS will find a way to bend the rules… Player and allocation money to a team for one of their slots… Domestic players not returning from abroad don’t take up a DP slot

    Lol does anyone have a feeling that the MLS is moving up in terms of competition? To say someone can get a job done automatically is just ….. I don’t see Robbie Keane lighting the scoreboard up. He does look like a great player but as a Striker wins and goals are what matter. Something the Galaxy is having issues with.

      I edited your comment. If you can add to the conversation without reducing the level of discourse, great. Otherwise, I’ll edit or just delete. Thanks

        You shouldn’t be so picky, I think you need all of the page views, comments and clicks you can get.

    Landy gone? That’s what I’m thinking.

    I think Landon may be off to Everton. If LA can get 12 mil that goes a long way in paying Lampard’s salary.

    Stay at Chelsea Frank. The MLS isn’t very good and you will be bored.
