Surely the same could be said about several other players in the squad I could name.

Course it would! Were a fickle people, a fickle media. He'd be God like if he put a few away in the next game to take us through, guaranteed.

You what!? Rooney!? When has he had a shot on goal!? Crouch!? Again, when!? Gerrard may have scored but he's not had that many other shots.
Point I was making was not goal threat, but threat of 'shots'. Lampard has had tons more shots then any other player, just a pity he's f*cked them all up!
Im sorry mate, but if you think that makes him a threat because he has tons of shots and missed them all then im not sure how to respond. I suppose its monkeys and typewriters in that situation!
Crouch has already scored this world cup hasnt he? Someone who scores goals is more of a threat than someone who f*cks them all up!
Lampard has played in all matches from start to finishes hasnt he? How many goals has he scored from how many 'shots'? In my opinion someone who can belt the ball all around the goal but in the back of the net is of no use to us. He might as well be skipping and picking flowers for all the good its doing us.
But on a serious note, you cant actually believe he is a threat, can you?
BTW I'm not defending Lampards performance this World Cup, its blatantly obvious that along with several others, he's underperforming. However, I will defend the fact he is a great player, and the facts and statistics prove that.
Like i said i dont watch or follow club football, so i cant comment on that aspect. But i do understand where your coming from with your arguments. But look at it from my/other point of view. If you had not seen Lampard play for Chelsea, and had only watched his World Cup matches, would you still think that much of him?
