I think the difference is Lampard, Gerrard would likely have gone further down to start with (or have atleast been smart enough not to publicly state otherwise) if they had too whereas Giggs made it abundantly clear he wouldn't.Funny how any link of giggs to a decent job was met with so much anger, venom and dare I say hatred, but similar appointments or links such as Gerrard, lampard, bellamy, arteta are met with balance. Not always agreement but no screaming about 'entitlement' and earning ones stripes. And no this was not just re the United job. We seem to specialise in fans with a fundamental dislike of our team, ex players and even a 'tactically limited' Ferguson.
Anyway rant over, a surprising appointment but for some reason I think lampard will do well and will be clever in who he surrounds himself with coaching wise. John Terry is looking for a gig if all else fails he can get uncle 'arry on the ol dog and bone
