Frank Lampard: Do Chelsea Fans Really Want #LampardOut After Pre-Season Game?

Published

Frank Lampard

Wednesday marked Frank Lampard’s first game in charge of Chelsea, six days after the club legend was appointed manager of the Premier League side.

His debut saw Chelsea draw 1-1 with Dublin-based Bohemians – and by Thursday morning, #LampardOut was the top trend on Twitter in the UK.

Yes, really.

So, why was it trending, and how does such a hashtag gain momentum? BBC Sport takes a look…

The first mentions
Cast your mind back to April, when Lamps was still manager at Pride Park.

The first time the hashtag #LampardOut was used was after Derby were charged by the Football Association for failing to control their players during a 3-3 draw with Brentford – on 12 April.

A little over two weeks later, the second mention came courtesy of a Chelsea fan who claimed giving Lampard the Blues job would “tarnish his legacy and everyone will be #LampardOut”.

TwitterFurther mentions appeared on Twitter, with 199 tweets between the first use and the announcement of Lampard as Chelsea boss on 4 July.

One fan was optimistic with his six-month prediction; it only took six days for the hashtag to gain proper momentum.

TwitterOthers backed the appointment, adding they would “stand with Lampard” when the predictable tweets came…

TwitterWednesday’s team announcement

There were 257 tweets using the hashtag between Chelsea’s announcement at 09:00 BST on 4 July, and 19:25 BST on 10 July – when the team was announced for Chelsea’s pre-season friendly against Bohemians.

A further 12 tweets appeared between the team announcement and kick-off, with a dozen supporters wading in on Lampard’s team selection.

Confusion ensues

If its inception was clearly tongue-in-cheek, there there were still some fans who were genuinely perplexed by the top trend.

The aftermath of a pre-season draw

Those who might not have seen the result of Wednesday night’s pre-season friendly were genuinely confused as to why #LampardOut was all over their timelines.

But some Chelsea fans appeared genuinely unimpressed about a 1-1 draw in Ireland…

The playful trolling continued, with one fan even going to the lengths of creating a ‘Lampard Out’ Twitter account. Others suggested fans of rival clubs might have been wading in to help the hashtag trend.

And one fan attempted to change the narrative, calling for a #LampardIn hashtag.

No matter how well the new boss performs this season, it’s likely that we’ve not seen the last of the hashtag.

Asamoah Gyan

Former captain of the Ghana Black Stars, Asamoah Gyan, has recently ventured into the acting business. This comes as no surprise as he recently revealed that he would no longer play with the Blacks Stars in any tournament.

It would be recalled that a few years back, Asamoah Gyan ventured into the music business but that proved unsuccessful after his musician friend Castro underfaya went missing.

Via his Instagram handle he announced that he is starting a new TV Program titled, “The Adventures of Asamoah Gyan Baby Jet”.

He wrote; “Something new cooking oooo Just subscribe on new YouTube channel on my Bio. Subscribe ooooo, yoooo”.

We are anticipating the project of the footballer-musician and now actor. We just hope the movie would’nt be riddled with substandard acting that would make viewers cringe. Fingers crossed.

Policeman Dies 2 Weeks To His Wedding

Published

on

42-year-old Lance Corporal James Yaw Appiah a.k.a “Antoa Cupers”, left his family heartbroken following news of his death which came two weeks to his wedding.

The policeman attached to the police unit in Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region, Ghana, was found dead in his tent at a police duty point near the Bawku Government Hospital on the last day of a monthly rotational police operation that had sent him to the town.

His death came a few hours after having a chat with his cousin and gospel musician Lady Prempeh. The deceased’s family, however, suspects that the police authorities are withholding the truth, as the corpse of the deceased had bloody bruises to the right side of his face down to the shoulder, suggesting that he might have struggled with his assailant.

Head of the family, Nana Dr. Kusi Appiah Osraman in an interview with Kumasi-based Angel FM said, “Police in the Upper East Region is being economical with the truth in the circumstances that led to the death of his nephew and suspects that they have a hand in the matter”.

“They are deliberately keeping the body at Bawku so that it would get rotten in order to conceal the evidence that could be adduced from the postmortem”, he said, accusing the Upper East Regional Police Commander, DCOP Ampofo Duku of conspiring to get his nephew killed, because he told me to “do whatever I want or please myself” when I threatened to make the matter public.”

He is reportedly survived by two kids from his previous relationship, and his fiancee he was to get married to.
