    Favourite Kit Manufacturer

    Got to be Kappa, Asics were good though. With a couple of exceptions I've found the Umbro and Nike efforts to be quite dull. I suppose this season's grey kit at least is something different although given how often we've worn it not really worth doing. Next I'd be happy with Hummel as i love what they've done with the Coventry kits. I also like Macron efforts. I suspect we are shackled to Umbro for the forseeable.

    Leeds April 3rd.

    Unless I'm being blind or stupid the only home game on sale as an individual match is this Saturday v Bristol city. Personally I'd have them all on sale now. Then again I'd try and get as many home fans in the ground as possible which doesn't seem to be on the agenda here. I suspect quite the opposite for the Leeds game.

    Leeds April 3rd.

    I went on Rovers' website last night and unless you buy the 4 game bundle there are no tickets for sale for the Leeds game. It really does sum this operation up that whilst we are able to produce and send tickets to Leeds for them to sell out within an hour we can't even get ours on our website so that Rovers fans can buy if they want to go. Talk about priorities. Then Waggott will wonder why nobody bothers going. How about get tickets.on sale?

    Away shirts

    Says who? Waggott? I take what he says with a pinch of salt.

    Away shirts

    I dont understand the commercial angle to the 3rd strip. They only released it as the season was starting and only had extremely limited stock to sell. So even if it had been the most popular away shirt in history it wouldn't have sold many units.

    Away shirts

    Ok, pet hate time. I hate it when we wear an away shirt rather than our proper blue and white halves. There is no need for us to wear a changed strip at places like Middlesbrough, Charlton or Bristol City. This season we now have 3 kits, our '3rd strip' for some reason being blue with white trim and shorts and our '2nd strip' being a horrible grey. The only away game we have worn our proper kit is at Hull. We've worn the blue shirt 10 times in 20 away games, and only worn the grey shirt 9 times. Whole thing absolutely pointless. Made more silly by the fact that the blue shirt was only revealed at the 11th hour and very little stock was available for purchase. Whoever is running this needs replacing. How hard can it be. One away shirt, worn when playing away at sides with blue or white home strips. Rest of the time we use blue and white halves, like we always used to up until about 5 year ago.

    Its not all about the money. Apparently we are in the play off race so why would we hand over half our ground to the opposition? We are already too generous with away crowds. Nobody else offers nearly 8000 seats to away fans. I wouldn't be surprised if Waggott had looked into it. Wouldnt be the first time home season ticket holders have been moved from their seats to accommodate large away followings. Hope those 'marginal gains' achieved by sticking 400 fans up in the gods aren't going to be missed by having 8000 Leeds behind the goal.

    To make matters even worse it seems the stadium and training ground are still owned by the previous owner. So now they are in a real mess with the club owning no real assets and looking set for relegation. Always had a whiff of something not right.

    Academy & U21s

    Burnley usually play reserve matches at Curzon Ashton. The odd part is that they've already tried having it at Morecambe and Oldham. Things get even more complicated when you consider that tonight we are playing Wolves in the knock out stages of the competition, before completing the group stage 3 days later. So if we lose tonight we are out of the competition, but then have to prepare for our final group game v the dingles. Mental.
  12. Richard Sharpe will stick up for his mates at the club who feed him stories and make him cups of tea every Thursday pre match conference. To be turning up two games running supposedly chasing promotion with no defenders on the bench whilst our promotion winning vastly experienced former captain sits at home collecting his wage is simply inexplicable. You must be born yesterday if you think there isnt more to that particular story, sadly it seems the majority were born yesterday judging by the number who happily lap up the nonsense.
  13. They have a good home record. But going there happy to get a point is an issue. We don't have plenty of games left. After today we are down to 9 - 27 points up for grabs. A draw today puts us on 54. We will need at least 20 points after that to get into the top 6. Two very tough home games against the top 2. Then away games to come against the relegation threatened sides and then against rivals in the pack Cardiff and Millwall. All those games will be labelled tough and folk will settle for a point in them. But it won't be enough.

    Signing lots of players to replace lots of departures doesn't mean that there is a big or good or decent budget. It is filling a self created chasm with frees and loans. Trying to spend money or talking about spending money are different to actually spending money. We seem to be good at it until the money is needed.

    Bottom 3 are the 3 who came up last season. Interesting.
