    Not sure we do really ! He popped up with a few goals last season including a " worldie " against Bournemouth, and has been in and out this season depending on formation, injuries etc , a 100% player, as all Dyche's signings tend to be, but yet to nail down a specific role, at least to these eyes ...

    Available Saturday, for the dubious pleasure of a 4th Round FA Cup tie away at Manchester City ..... I don't think I'm going out on a limb by saying that I don't think that's our top priority at present, though he might give RB some " game time " ..

    It won't surprise you to learn that I hope both you and " DE " are correct, after the first half of the season that we've had, every Claret I know would take 17th place every day of the week ! 😓

    ITV news now stating that French authorities have stated that he was on board ..... https://www.itv.com/news/wales/2019-01-22/french-authorities-confirm-footballer-emiliano-sala-on-board-missing-plane/ Hoping for more positive news, puts all the rivalry banter into its proper context ....

    Championship 2018-19

    Claret in peace as ever, Think you've had a cracking season so far, certainly better than I, and I suspect many of you thought possible .. The madness of the " Championship " seems to continue season after season with anyone capable of beating anyone else " on the day ", excepting maybe Ipswich and Bolton . 12 points currently separate West Brom in 3rd on 50 points and Stoke, lying 15th with 38 points ... Do you think you can carry it on for the last 18 games, or is the squad lacking in depth should you get a few injuries/suspensions ? Mowbray seems to be popular amongst my Rovers mates, regarded as a " safe pair of hands " after the revolving door years ! Can you come with a late run ?

    It's good to know who your favourite " Big Club " is ! Lights blue touch paper and retires !

    Would you take that particular roll of the dice ? I think so !! Deep breath and move on, especially in view of our last 4 league games ...... gulp !! 😁

    Fair point, I still think Cardiff will struggle eventually ... so I'm hoping there's one other side weaker than us !!

    It is now, phew, we needed those last two wins !! Fulham at home next, another 6 pointer !! PS: 63 games now without a penalty !!

    er... Dwight McNeil started the game, who I believe is of mixed race .... We also have no one on the field who has confessed in court to sitting in a chair pleasing himself, whilst a friend entertained a young lady on a nearby bed, or any players currently serving a community service order .... I trust you pointed this out to her !!

    Thanks for your good wishes, Gents !! Jimmy Greaves used to say the descent from the old road from Rawtenstall ( pre M66/M65 days ) into Burnley in the early 1960's, was like entering Brigadoon, as the town emerged from the Smog and mist ...... like entering another Country for those London boys !! 😁 Despite todays result, I wouldn't rule out the East Lancs Derby being resumed next year just yet !! Happy new year to one and all !!

    What Needs To Change and Where Do We Go From Here?

    Repayment of directors loans & other debt, long needed upgrading of our Training facilities and Ground, Players wages and into our Profit & Loss account ... He's doing fine, thanks !

    What Needs To Change and Where Do We Go From Here?

    I think a lot of League 1 / Championship Clubs would like the " handicap " of wealthy owners investing £399k a WEEK, by way of further share purchases ... If you know of another potential owner prepared to fund the Club to this extent, then please let us know ... Looking forward to next year's Championship Derby ....

    It isn't, it's an absolute disgrace ......you might notice how the so-called big 6 aren't so keen on contributing to this based on their League positions/earnings in the Premier League over the last 19 years ...
