John Terry or Frank Lampard: Who's the Bigger Chelsea Legend?

Michael CummingsWorld Football Lead WriterFebruary 26, 2013

John Terry and Frank Lampard have served Chelsea for more than a decade. Both played influential roles in the title-winning seasons of 2004-05, 2005-06 and 2009-10. Both have won awards and collected accolades, both have legions of loyal fans and both are living legends in the eyes of Chelsea supporters.

Question is, who’s the bigger legend?

Chelsea fans refer to Terry adoringly as “captain, leader, legend,” and it’s not hard to see why. A central defender, Terry was immense during the 2004-05 season in which Chelsea allowed only 15 goals. For his work, Terry was named PFA Player of the Year.

That same season, Lampard was named the writers’ Premier League Player of the Year, and at the end of 2005, he finished second behind Ronaldinho in the FIFA World Player of the Year voting. With 199 career goals, he is closing in on the club’s all-time scoring record.

It’s a tough choice, but in this clip, B/R world football lead writer Michael Cummings gives his opinion on which player is the bigger Chelsea legend. After watching the video, make sure to add your thoughts in the comments below.
