You can imagine the scene. John Terry, Ashley Cole and Didier Drogba sit around a table at Frank Lampard's house, plotting intricate movements of personalities; tactics and the timely sacrificing of pawns in their game – how to topple a king in as few moves as possible. However, they are obviously bored of that activity now, because Lampard has decided to sell his ornate chess set with matching stools. "Beautifully decorated from top to bottom," says the auctioneer. "This must have been a very expensive piece when new. Would grace any grand home with a touch of Premier League style!"
