Chelsea will hope to salvage something from a rollercoaster year on Wednesday when they play Benfica in the Europa League final at the Amsterdam ArenA on Wednesday night.
The Blues won the Champions League on a dramatic night in Munich one year ago, but since then they have sacked their manager, appointed an unpopular temporary replacement and they have had to settle for playing in the Europa League rather than continuing to feature at Europe's top table.
Club captain Terry is a major doubt for the game with an ankle injury, meaning Lampard is likely to lead the team out in the Dutch capital.
Terry missed last year's final through suspension, but it still did not stop the defender turning up in his full kit to lift the trophy with Lampard - an act which led to some derision of the former England skipper online.
There has been no discussion as to who will have the honour of lifting the trophy this year though, should Chelsea triumph.
"Before the game I don't think it's something to talk about," Lampard said.
"I don't like to tempt fate. I haven't had a conversation with anyone.
"I don't think you should do. We will see. We win together so it doesn't matter who picks it up because they will be one of the staff and we're all the same."
Lampard arguably deserves to be the man who has the honour of lifting the famous piece of silverware if the Blues beat the two-time European champions.
The 34-year-old has had a stellar season, finding the net 17 times on his way to breaking Bobby Tambling's all-time scoring record, which had stood for 43 years.
Given that he is yet to extend a contract which runs out in the summer, it may well be his last European final for the club too.
Speculation mounted following his record-breaking brace at Aston Villa, that Chelsea would push for the midfielder to remain at the club despite a claim from the player's agent that Chelsea had told him that the England man would not be offered fresh terms under any circumstance.
