Boos greet Burnley defeat

THERE were boos at the final whistle at Turf Moor as Burnley became only the second Championship side in 18 games to lose to Huddersfield Town.

The Clarets had the better of the first half but a low shot on the turn from Keith Treacy was the only time Terriers goalkeeper Alex Smithies was tested.

And Burnley were made to pay the price 10 minutes into the second half as James Vaughan poked home from close range, after Lee Grant could only parry Adam Clayton's initial shot from the edge of the box.

Dane Richards came on to make his home and Football League debut in the 15th minute, following injury to Dean Marney.

But the Jamaican international was substituted on the hour for targetman Sam Vokes, who went on to steer a header against the crossbar.

Danny Ings came close to snatching a stoppage time equaliser after being sent clear by Danny Lafferty. But it was the only time Smithies was called into action after the Clarets conceded, and he answered the call.

After the defeat Burnley boss Sean Dyche said: "That was unacceptable and we've made the players aware of that. We just weren't ourselves tonight."

I agree it was a great Burnley defeat but a terrible Rovers one. Two poor teams tonight.

I agree with you there chap, obviously I didn't get to the game living In Portsmouth but I listened to the game on player.

I have to say we were not only poor but dire too. But if I'm honest the season is panning out just like many other seasons past .

Did you get to your game or listen to it? Tuff place to go!

Let's hope when we play at your place the teams hit form and have a cracking game .

The derby is looking more and more like a dire affair between two struggling teams. All the 4 north west clubs were scraping the bottom of the barrel for managers. They are all ordinary with not very good players to work with.

I've made a few comments over the last couple of months regarding Burnley's form. Against Huddersfield they were the better side on paper, but to struggle against a lower-placed team the way they did, only vindicates my past comments.
A lack of real passion and inventiveness from the players, and an absence of tactical strategy from the manager is costing the Clarets missed opportunities to advance. They will certainly not make the play-offs this season, and to be honest, wouldn't deserve to do so.
They are away to Charlton on Saturday, with Charlton edging the form chart, but only just. Even so, I expect Burnley to lose there, too, and that is not me simply being cynical.

Rovers had the tougher game being away to Leicester, and I called it right, but the score was over-emphatic, which means Rovers truly under-performed. They should fare far better on Saturday home to Peterborough, and extend their lead over the clarets to four points.

The early promise of Sean Dyche's reign seems to be evaporating fast, naive tactics or players not giving their all? Maybe the team are around their true level in the Championship? On paper we have a decent side but clearly some peoples faces don't fit. Edgar was considered good enough to feature regularly in Swansea's promotion side yet always seemed to be the last to be picked and Stanislas is also slipping down the pecking order! Sadly a mid table Championship side seems to be the limit of the directors (and managers?) ambitions.It is ridiculous that Brian Laws took the team to its highest position since relegation. Not good enough, little wonder attendances are dwindling. Another 33 years before we get back to the top flight?

Getting promoted to the Premiership was I think deserved (Rovers Fans) just my opinion.

We had very good League and FA Cup runs and had a good run of form to get into the playoffs and yes I know there is luck getting through the playoffs but you still have to win the games.

I feel there are only two managers in recent times that have moved the club forward Stan and Owen.

Stan because he cemented the club in the league we are currently in.

Owen for taking us to another level that possibly came too early but gave the club hope in that we got to the Premiership all be it for one season but has shown that with the RIGHT manager we can do it again.

Have we got the Right manager that can drive the club forward ? I don't know myself. Have we had a manager since OC that can move the club forward again?

My opinion is no we haven't. I just get the impression that the club are very happy to be cemented in the Championship and hope on the off chance we may have the odd good season.

Can I throw out a question to Rovers and Burnley fans alike.

Within reason who do you think would be an Ideal manager for our respective clubs.

Just a little bit of football fun for both lots of suffering fans.

Ideal or ideal from who's available? Ideally for rovers mark Hughes or Gary Neville in his first job. I would also have liked Salvador maybe with Tugay. With venkys in charge though none of them would work at rovers. Realistically then maybe McCarthy.

I think Steve Cotterill did everything that was asked of him by the board at the time maintaining the status quo. OC perhaps did work a miracle to get Burnley into the top flight. Wonder whether he feels he made the right decision leaving Burnley now? Who would be my pick for manager? Someone who would be able to work with one hand tied behind his back and regard Burnley as a major step upwards. Rules out most of the boys with Premier League CVs. Burnley have a good track record of looking after their managers so got to stick with SD and see where he has taken us by say October and then review

Hi there chap.

I agree that SD should be given time and maybe a full pre-season and full season under his control could set the platform of taking this club forward instead of treading water.

As for who i would like as manager well it is a hard one really and wouldn't like to be in the boards shoes but I had Billy Davis in my mind.

I know were on a bad run but it just seems to be the same old story. Not consistent enough, give away cheap goals and don't score enough. We can't seem to pull results out the bag against teams on bad runs or those struggling at the bottom. This seems like it happens year in year out.

I guess ideal realistically who ever we could stretch the boat out to take the club forward lol . Its a hard one because there are very few clubs that can do it on a shoe string budget.

The clubs that have done it have invested lots of money doing so , look at Wigan . Not being disrespectful to them they aren't as big a club compared to Rovers or Burnley in terms of support but the owner has spent money, although they are in a dog fight each season they manage to stay up there.

To get to the Premiership and stay there a club has to spent money and take that gamble instead of taking the money gained in one season in the top flight to use the money to clear debts and line pockets.

We had very good League and FA Cup runs and had a good run of form to get into the playoffs and yes I know there is luck getting through the playoffs but you still have to win the games.

I feel there are only two managers in recent times that have moved the club forward Stan and Owen.

Stan because he cemented the club in the league we are currently in.

Owen for taking us to another level that possibly came too early but gave the club hope in that we got to the Premiership all be it for one season but has shown that with the RIGHT manager we can do it again.

Have we got the Right manager that can drive the club forward ? I don't know myself. Have we had a manager since OC that can move the club forward again?

My opinion is no we haven't. I just get the impression that the club are very happy to be cemented in the Championship and hope on the off chance we may have the odd good season.

Can I throw out a question to Rovers and Burnley fans alike.

Within reason who do you think would be an Ideal manager for our respective clubs.

Just a little bit of football fun for both lots of suffering fans.

Ideal or ideal from who's available? Ideally for rovers mark Hughes or Gary Neville in his first job. I would also have liked Salvador maybe with Tugay. With venkys in charge though none of them would work at rovers. Realistically then maybe McCarthy.
I guess ideal realistically who ever we could stretch the boat out to take the club forward lol . Its a hard one because there are very few clubs that can do it on a shoe string budget.

The clubs that have done it have invested lots of money doing so , look at Wigan . Not being disrespectful to them they aren't as big a club compared to Rovers or Burnley in terms of support but the owner has spent money, although they are in a dog fight each season they manage to stay up there.

To get to the Premiership and stay there a club has to spent money and take that gamble instead of taking the money gained in one season in the top flight to use the money to clear debts and line pockets.
Wigan never get the criticism rovers got for attendance even though they had lower gates . It's clearly a rugby town. They never fill a stand at the DW. Still, wish we had Dave Whelan at rovers instead of Dumb, Dumber and their bossy sister

I Know Rovers take a lot of stick about JW buying the Title but there was a guy who loved his football and loved his club.
He had a dream and made it come true. If only Burnley had there own JW I don't think any supporter would knock that if every he did was beneficial to the club.
