Progress pleasing for Turf boss Dyche

IN just over three months as Burnley boss, Sean Dyche is pleased with the progress the Clarets are making, but the message for the rest of the season is “there’s more to come”.

With no game at the weekend because of Huddersfield Town’s involvement in the FA Cup fifth round, Burnley were reliant on results elsewhere preventing the gap to the top six increasing from seven points.

Tomorrow night’s opponents Middlesbrough’s 4-1 defeat at Crystal Palace ensured there was no change.

And having made his mark on the side since his appointment at Turf Moor in late October, Dyche is confident of taking the opportunity to make up ground on their play-off rivals.

“The thirst for wins and thirst for points is never ending, and that’s what we’re looking to do, get more and more points,” said the Burnley boss, whose Turf Moor tenure could best be summed up as ‘so far, so good’.

“It’s hard to put it down in short sentences, but I’ve enjoyed it for sure.

“The biggest thing I’ve been pleased with is the work behind what you see.

“There’s so much change - not radical, but just change, and the flexibility of the players to buy into the changes, the staff, the fans and the media, it all adds into a positive environment to go forward.

“There are no guarantees, so it has to be a work in progress, continually looking for the extra bits that make it even more successful against the obvious challenges of changing finance and the market outside of our world.

“There’s a lot going on, but I’ve really enjoyed it so far.

“We’re working to improve and go further.

“There’s more to come is the way I look at it.

“There’s no guarantee with that, but that’s the plan.”

That plan has unfolded over time after Dyche admitted he came into the job with an open mind.

“When you come into the club it goes from one interview to the next one then speeds up quite quickly and before you know it the whistle’s blown and your first game’s there,” he said.

“Now and again you get the chance to pull your head out and look around a bit and go ‘right, where are we at?’.

“It’s fair to say at these times when games are called off it’s a good time for us to have a bit of reflection.”

He added: “I don’t really know what I imagined it to be.

“I knew when I came in there was a decent group of players and I knew about the history and the way that people valued what they do here.

“I felt there were things we could affect, and I’m pleased we have with the work ethic, the structure of the team and the structure behind the team.

“There are a lot of changes with the processes we’ve put in place.

“I’ve been pleased with that.”

I think that record would have been a lot better had we had the rub of the green. Trips sending off was harsh and marney's rescinded whilst stock was sent off for mistaken identity. Add to that ipswich's dodgy goal. With luck on our side we could have been 10-12 points better off.

We also outplayed the scumbags from deadwood (words from their ex player). I think he is doing a good job.

10 to 12 points better off ? Are you deluded or is your name Steve Kean.
Admit it, you lot are playing out of your skins and are in a false position.

We could easily have been 10 to 12 points better off. On our day we can beat anyone but then so can Peterborough! We lost against charlton, Ipswich n brum due to poor decisions when we were by far the better team. If luck had gone our way instead of against we could have been right up there.

Wouldn't you be better off taking your personality disorder for a walk in a different park?
