THOUSANDS of Clarets fans have lined the streets of Burnley to welcome Sean Dyche's promotion heroes.

The manager addressed the crowd in Manchester Road from the balcony of the town hall, where his players and staff were given a civic reception.

The town centre was awash with claret and blue balloons, flags, and scarves as the entire squad stepped out to greet the sea of supporters.

An open-top bus is set to make its way through the town to Turf Moor at 3pm.

It's 'you're' not 'your' in the first instance so there won't be many giving any credence to the functionally illiterate belly-aching stit'shirrers (Sp) of this world. As for that 'jam tomorrow' gobshitery, your optimism strikes me like junk-mail addressed to the dead.

you bite every time and so you should do but the lesson in Grammar was a bit low,more to the point your team made the top 2 because over the season you were one of the better teams and no one is arguing that but from a personal point of view that does not change a thing when it comes to my intense dislike of your club,and you may think what a bad loser l am well the truth is l have been a bad loser all my life but l love to have that competitive edge because without it l don,t function and you can think what you like, l love Blackburn Rovers and detest Burnley but at the same time l respect the job your excellent manager has done,and l would not mind having him down at Ewood,,,would you kindly pass on the message ?
