Chelsea Fans Unveil 'Circus Continues' Banner On Stamford Bridge Gate After Frank Lampard Sacking
Furious Chelsea fans have unfurled a damning banner on the gate of Stamford Bridge in protest against Frank Lampard's dismissal.
The board wasted no time in replacing the club's leading all-time Premier League scorer by drafting in Thomas Tuchel who'll take charge of Chelsea for the first time versus Wolves tonight.

And ahead of their league fixture at the Bridge, a group of angry Chelsea supporters have erected a banner that reads 'circus continues' on the gate and let off flares in a powerful demonstration.
Chelsea fan account @WeAre_TheShed shared the picture of the banner attached to Stamford Bridge on social media, accompanied with the caption: "The board used Frank & Jody, discarding a long-term project for short term fixes again, this time at the expense people with a special connection to our club.
"No manager will ever be able to meet the ridiculous expectations of the board
"We [100 emoji] back Tuchel but #TheCircusContinues."

The Chelsea fanbase is pretty split on their message aimed at the likes of Roman Abramovich.

One Twitter user wrote: "Don't listen to any of the plastics reaction to this.
"The board need to be held accountable, currently taken the cowards way out and knew we weren't able to show our frustration anywhere else. Nothing to do with Tuchel! Well done guys, you're saying it louder for all of us."
Another argued: "This club belongs to Roman, you have no position to question his actions. He runs the most successful English club this century so calling it a 'circus' is just you being a blockhead."
A third added: "Even I'm hit hard by Lampard's sacking but nah this isn't it.
"Chelsea are one of the best run clubs in the world and have been since Roman came in. Imagine having owners like Arsenal or United have or a board as clueless as the one at Barca."
Lampard leaves Chelsea languishing in tenth-place in the league table with 29 points on the board, six points adrift of West Ham who occupy the last Champions League spot.
Will Tuchel get the best out of summer signings Kai Havertz and Timo Werner and help boost his new team up the table?
Let us know what you think.
