Clarets celebrate promotion with parade

Lancashire Telegraph: Clarets celebrate promotion with parade Clarets celebrate promotion with parade

LARGE crowds are expected to gather in Burnley this weekend in celebration of the Clarets’ promotion to the Premier League.

A public celebration event will be held on Sunday, May 4, when a Civic reception at Burnley Town Hall will be followed by an open-top bus parade through the town centre to Turf Moor.

Burnley FC manager Sean Dyche and his players will appear on the balcony of the town hall at 2pm, where there will be short interviews with the stars.

This will be followed by an open-top bus parade to the club’s ground.

The route will start at the corner of Grimshaw Street/Manchester Road and follow Red Lion Street/Centenary Way/Yorkshire Street and Harry Potts Way.

The Mayor of Burnley, Councillor Frank Cant, said: “I remember five years ago when Burnley went up to the Premier League what a great day that was. I’m sure this Sunday will be even bigger. The whole town wants to celebrate the Clarets’ marvelous achievement in gaining automatic promotion.

“Burnley truly is a premier town and now we have a premier club again. Burnley is going places in so many ways and now the Clarets are back on top I’m sure we’ll be attracting many more visitors to the town who’ll be able to see how great Burnley is, not just at football but in many other ways too.”

Burnley FC joint-chairmen John Banaszkiewicz and Mike Garlick added: “We feel it is right and fitting that we celebrate the club’s success with our people. The Premier League is back in our town and back on our Turf and we look forward to another special day with the townsfolk of Burnley and our supporters from further afield.”

The town hall car park will be closed to the public all day and there will be some disruption to town centre traffic and bus services.

The following roads will be closed from 6am: Manchester Road (Finsley Gate to Grimshaw Street), Saunder Bank, Elizabeth Street, Yorke Street and Ormerod Street.

The following roads will be closed from noon: Hargreaves Street, Grimshaw Street and Parker Lane.

Centenary Way will be closed to traffic (between Red Lion Street and Yorkshire Street) from 3pm but open to pedestrians to watch the parade pass by.

All roads should be back to normal by 6pm.

If you actually were a Burnley fan (not that you've even come remotely close to fooling anyone) then you'd know we actually got presented with a trophy last Saturday against Ipswich.
You know I really do believe your all consuming bitterness will eventually be the death of you, and I can't see there being too many tears shed on here, not even by your fellow Rovers fans who must cringe every time you post.

Noooo absolutely zero envy from any Blackburn inbred on this site is there? Because of course you prefer to compete in the lower reaches of the Second Division, you definitely do want to go into administration, you love having a boring monotone no-mark bib and cone man as your main manager, you just can't wait for Jordan Rhodes and Grant Hanley to be sold, and you are massively looking forward to your upcoming transfer embargo - of course you are.

I mean, who cares that your bitter rivals have smashed all teams this season and have achieved everything that you wanted to happen for your team?

Not you, you have absolutely no envy whatsoever have you? How can a side that after this Saturday is a league above you, possibly be inferior to you - please tell without resorting to things that happened 20 years ago.

Burnley are a superior team at the moment - fact.

However, based on whatever criteria you wish to adopt over the history of our two clubs, be it trophies won, years in the top flight, victories over one another, average attendances/level of support, quality of stadia, international caps etc etc, I think you will find that you are indeed inferior- FACT!

It would probably take you 34 years to change at least some of these points, but of course that is never going to happen. I wish you all the best after a great season, but envy? Not ever.

You can stop at that because that's all that matters, not who won more FA Cups in the 1800's when football was played by men in top hats smoking pipes.

Jack Walker is gone, the Walker Trust is gone. All you have now are Venky's and when they decide to withdraw their support you are well and truly up sh!t creek without a paddle. It will happen sooner than you think.

I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I am not completely sick with envy. Of course I wish we were in your league position but were not, because at this moment in time we don't deserve to be.

You have had one unbelievable season with a Manager who, like Owen Coyle, should have a statue erected in the town centre as acknowledgement to the miracle that he has worked with no money, poor crowds and 2-3 half decent players.

Short term, fair enough, but medium to long term I wouldn't swap places with you guys for all the chickens in India.

The future for Blackburn Rovers is just about as bleak as you can imagine for a club run by Indian chicken farmers who have found themselves completely out of their depth and now dare not even show their faces at their own club for fear of being pelted by missiles by the locals.

Deluded with your head in the sand, you are simply one of many no-dads who won't accept FFP until it's de-panted you, bent you over, and given you ten of the best.

The transfer embargo is the tip of a very big iceberg.

Terrier Man you appear to have a modicum of sense, unlike the majority of your gurning Blackburn colleagues that post on the Burnley articles, but did you really just say 'but medium to long term I wouldn't swap places with you guys for all the chickens in India'?????

So do you honestly think that medium term-long term your future is better than Burnley's, really?

Even though you are in massive debt?

Even though your wages-turnover ratio is almost 140%?

Even though you are going to be forced to sell your highest earners to bring down your crippling wage bill (And this included Rhodes)?

Even though you are going to have a Transfer Embargo in January?

Even though your manager is possibly THE dullest, uninspiring bore that I have ever heard speak?

Even though you are STILL going to be playing Chumpionship football next season?

Even though Burnley are playing in the Premier League?

And are rich?

And are going to be actually spending some real live money on players in the summer?

And are looking forward to the cash injection and extra sponsorship that being in the Premier League brings?

And will be playing in front of full houses all next season?

I think that, despite your protestations, you definitely would rather have a local board of directors that are all Rovers fans, that keep a tight rein on the finances, and that have appointed potentially the best young English manager in the game, and you DEFINITELY would rather be playing in the Premier League than the Championship.

And are going to be actually spending some real live money on players in the summer? And the turmoil begins............

And are looking forward to the cash injection and extra sponsorship that being in the Premier League brings? What about the extra spending - did Burney not post a loss on return after the last comedy Premier campaign

And will be playing in front of full houses all next season? Not difficult when you have such a small house

Terrier Man you appear to have a modicum of sense, unlike the majority of your gurning Blackburn colleagues that post on the Burnley articles, but did you really just say 'but medium to long term I wouldn't swap places with you guys for all the chickens in India'?????

So do you honestly think that medium term-long term your future is better than Burnley's, really?

Even though you are in massive debt?

Even though your wages-turnover ratio is almost 140%?

Even though you are going to be forced to sell your highest earners to bring down your crippling wage bill (And this included Rhodes)?

Even though you are going to have a Transfer Embargo in January?

Even though your manager is possibly THE dullest, uninspiring bore that I have ever heard speak?

Even though you are STILL going to be playing Chumpionship football next season?

Even though Burnley are playing in the Premier League?

And are rich?

And are going to be actually spending some real live money on players in the summer?

And are looking forward to the cash injection and extra sponsorship that being in the Premier League brings?

And will be playing in front of full houses all next season?

I think that, despite your protestations, you definitely would rather have a local board of directors that are all Rovers fans, that keep a tight rein on the finances, and that have appointed potentially the best young English manager in the game, and you DEFINITELY would rather be playing in the Premier League than the Championship.
I was actually being tongue in cheek. I am deeply concerned about our finances and what the immediate future might hold, but I will support my home town club untiI I die.

Can't knock you there Terrier Man, fair do's.

I would like to wish you good luck for next season, but obviously I would be being insincere.
