Frank knows the score…

The papers and blogs have all got excited at the news that England (and Chelsea) hero Frank Lampard has confessed he is a Tory. It is quite unusual – although not unheard of – for footballers to be so open with their political opinions but in a way I feel less surprised than some when they do. Football, like politics, is very tribal – you support your team when they up, and when they are down and as a supporter of both the Conservative Party and Spurs it has been a heartbreaking at times! I am glad Frank has come out as a supporter – it is nice to know that premiership footballers do think about more than just football, being a celebrity, or fancy clothes. There is an excellent article on football and politics HERE and well worth a read.
