    Mowbray: Stay or Go - A Poll

    In peace .. what's his salary ? I'm sure I read on here at one point it was £2,000 a week + Bonus ? Can't be right surely ?

    Not sure about Rigg's involvement in those signings ... Obviously, I'd go for the best manager available, fans were muttering " Sean who ? " when the gravel-voiced wonder was appointed, and look at us now ! To be honest, I don't know must about Foreign football to express a view. If he does go, whoever comes in knows they'll get time, Eddie Howe left for personal reasons, Coyle went off to Bolton, Cotterall was by mutual consent, and Stan Ternent's contract was not renewed ... only Brian Laws has had the dreaded " meeting without Coffee " since June 1998 !!

    I'd be sad to see him go, obviously ! I can understand both points of view, Dyche wants the investment to progress on the field, whilst Mike Garlick sees himself as the " custodian " of a historic Club. He remembers both the " Orient " game, and the " ITV Digital " fiasco, both of which nearly saw Burnley FC go under ...He's also seen your little " difficulties ", as well as Bolton, Bury and Blackpool's problems, which will have influenced his thinking .... Ben Gibson was signed for £15m but has now been banished from Gawthorpe ( 1 EPL appearance, 5 in the Cups ), and is now training with Middlesbrough ! The view of most fans is that Rigg needs to start producing and pronto .... other signings like Brady and Gudmundsson have sparkled in patches, but are injury prone. Where would Sean go where he could have such an imprint on a Club ? You can rule the " Big 6 " out, I suspect .... Everton, Newcastle and Wolves think they are " above " his perceived brand of Football . I'm told he's on £3.5m p.a. ( + Bonus ), so I suspect if Aston Villa go down, that may be a possibility. He and Ian Woan share a house near Whalley during the week, whereas he could commute from his home near Kettering, in under an hour to Villa. They are a bigger Club than us, and have infinitely wealthier owners. Replacement ? The heart says Paul Cook or Michael Duff, but I honestly don't know .... the names slung around by the media, Alan Pardew or Mark Hughes would be unacceptable to the fans, that's for sure ...

    As a Burnley fan, what is this " Colour " TV of which you speak ? I had to listen to our 1 - 0 win over Crystal Palace this evening on the Home Service ! Just looking forward to the " Daily Sketch " tomorrow, to see where we are in the table ! 😉

    I'm sure I speak for all of the Claret & Blue persuasion in sending our best wishes to " @pk1875 ", and indeed everyone else affected by this horrible virus. Keep safe, one and all !!

    They played for both ....

    If I recall correctly, didn't Chris Sutton fall out with Glen Hoddle, after being asked to play for England " B " ....... I know the notion of Chris Sutton falling out with someone will come as a surprise to us all ... 😉

    Hmm .... Collymore and Sutton ? Four England Caps and zero goals between them, more " Vin de Table " than " Vintage " imho ...... 😎

    I think that completes the Nine, not Ten, David May never got a cap !! Adam Blacklaw FL Career 1956 -1970 3 Scottish Caps Andrew Cole FL Career 1989 - 2008 15 England Caps John Connelly FL Career 1957 -1973 20 England Caps Gordon Cowans FL Career 1976 - 1997 10 England Caps Shane Duffy FL Career 2009 - Present 32 Eire Caps Alan Mahon FL Career 1997 - 2010 2 Eire Caps Andy Marriott FL Career 1989 - 2010 5 Welsh Caps Steven Reid FL Career 1998 - 2015 23 Eire Caps Paul Robinson FL Career 1998 - 2017 41 England Caps Unless of course, you know different ! In peace as ever !

    Well played, Sir !

    They played for both ....

    Jay McEverley won 3 Caps for Scotland, played for both, but his career has not, as yet, spanned 3 different decades of appearances in the Football League ... With two to get, here's a clue for each ... a) Developed in Blackburn's Youth system, he played his first League game for Rovers, and his last for Burnley in Stan Ternent's last game in charge ... b) This player had much more success with another " Claret & Blue " Club, than he ever did at Turf Moor ! I think that should do it ! 😎
