    Burnley pub renamed after Sean Dyche

    The team was more than capable of winning, bearing in mind we have a game a few days later I thought his selection was ok to be honest. I know, it’s just a bit of fun and if you got us in the cup this year you’d probably win! I would if the situation was reversed 😂

    If you can believe it loads of fans kept saying they wanted to go out as it might lead to our relegation - I just can't understand that mentality. I would swap relegation for an FA Cup, League Cup, Europa etc every day of the week. I can't imagine in 10 years I'll be reminiscing about the time we finished 14th in the Premier League.

    Who's lying? I got a trip to Aberdeen which was actually great fun and their fans were awesome, home and away - great banter in the pubs around Burnley when they came down too. And Istanbul was an amazing place to visit. Aye indeed I did - and (as you'll see above) loved it - proper football team and ground Aberdeen.

    The players and agents at a guess. I enjoyed our European jaunt - would have been nice to get to the group but cest la vie. Back to the day jobs now.

    So far we've looked poor defensively which is the biggest worry. Played very well last night but whether we can take that into the league, we shall see. Sundays game is a tricky one because United are a wounded bear right now. If the players want Jose out (as some are suggesting) then we might just sneak something but if they give a reaction could be a pasting - I think a better indicator will be the 4 games after Sunday which are all games where you would target points when the fixture list comes out (Wolves A, Bournemouth H, Cardiff A and Huddersfield H) you'd want 6 minimum and ideally 7 from that. But most seasons are likely to be relegation battles for us until we actually go down so it's no surprise to me we are where we are. On the posts above about some of the "Dyche" out type idiots. I can only assume they've jumped on the PL bandwagon because no one who enjoyed the 4th division days etc would come out with such nonesense. As for he's lost it, has he hell and for me if we are rock bottom all season I wouldn't dream of getting rid - if we went down and did a Sunderland, only then for me should we look to change. Oh and we did strengthen, spent about 30 million, thats still a lot of money for us, and we still have Brady and Defour to come back.

    Premier League Stuff

    Most fans are not overly worrying - our reality is most seasons we will be struggling near the bottom whilst we are in the PL. Anyone who imagines otherwise is a fool. Eventual relegation is inevitable for clubs like Burnley. So being financially cautious makes sense HOWEVER for all those (on here and on Burnley boards) should bear this in mind. In the last 3 seasons we have spent around 115 million on players, we have broken our transfer record every season. In addition as a result (in theory at least) of attracting better players our wage bill has gone up and up and, I understand, is now around 60 million a year. Add in transfer fees of aroun 40 million a season plus agents fees, rebuild of training facilities, ground changes to meet PL and Sky requirements etc etc and its easy to see how the money is swallowed up - and how easy it would be to bankrupt a small club like ours without a benefactor. Fulham I believe spent over 100 million on fees alone - Wolves not much less. We cannot do that and, thankfully will not try. So I'm not worried (though many more like Sunday and being around the bottom 3 becomes being in the bottom 3 for sure). The club are doing the right things and hopefully when that relegation comes (as it will sooner or later) we will be on a solid base and ready to compete in the championship.

    I imagine he's stayed because the right better offer hasn't yet arrived. In this country there are a handful of jobs currently "better" than Burnley for him. Here he has a largely free hand to do as he wishes, he earns (I hear) very good money and he's largely unsackable. So of course he's ambitious but change for the sake of it? Maybe he sees the Europa as shop window for European teams so he can go abroad a few seasons, earn a reputation and maybe would then be considered for a "top 6" job? Twas ever thus - Ask big Sam.

    The rest of the fans in Istanbul (be they Galatasaray, Besiktas or Fenerbache) hate Basaksehir. They are owned by their ministry of sport and most locals feel Erdogan is financing them with government money. They honestly could not have been more welcoming. Now its on to Athens. I can't make this one as it clashes with GCSE results day and so have to be here for my son in the event things don't go well. It's hard to see how our journey doesn't end here. Olympiakos have a real pedigree and I would expect them to have too much for us - shame as I'd have loved to get to the group stages and do at least one more trip.

    Nah - was just having a laugh about the attendance stuff - he’s a dick but provided a bit of mild ammunition for fun - we’ve got plenty of them of our own. yeah I went - I’m still here, fly back tomorrow. It was I thought a respectable turnout considering cost and distance - plus the Turkish reputation. They were technically pretty decent to be honest but couldn’t score - certainly not convinced we will win next Thursday.

    Tomphil mentioned it a post or 2 before mine. As for moral high ground - I would hope most Rovers fans don’t share his sentiment- hence the quotes around fan - animosity is one thing but wishing people stabbed? I wasn’t suggesting he represented most Rovers fans and if you thought I were my apologies.

    This obsession with our attendances really isn’t healthy lads. For the record no one got stabbed (I know a ‘fan’ of yours was wishing for that on social media the tool) as far as I know and a great time was had by all - but the game was poor. Still 0-0 away, mustn’t grumble.
