Boss Dyche wants his Burnley side to be remembered

Lancashire Telegraph: Michael Kightly celebrates his winner on Saturday Picture: CLIVE LAWRENCE Michael Kightly celebrates his winner on Saturday Picture: CLIVE LAWRENCE

SEAN Dyche does not want Burnley’s season to stop at promotion as he targets a 95-point campaign.

The Clarets secured a Premier League place with a record points return of 89, and bettered that through Saturday’s 1-0 win over Ipswich Town to bring a fitting end to their home fixtures with a 15th triumph at Turf Moor.

It brought an end to Ipswich's play-off hopes, while Reading – Burnley’s last opponents of 2013/14 – remain in contention.

But ahead of Saturday’s trip to the Madejski Stadium, Burnley boss Dyche has gone from a ‘one game at a time’ message to ‘one more win’ to cement his side’s place in the club’s history books.

“I told the group we’re part of history and we want to rubber stamp it and chisel it in stone. We want enough points on that board where people for 100 years will be saying ‘What about that team!’ and people can’t catch it,” said the Burnley boss, on the day that the Clarets honoured the 100-year anniversary of their only FA Cup win.

Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy had expected Burnley to be off the boil just days after securing second spot, as they looked to sneak into sixth.

But Dyche did not want promotion to become a distraction.

“Mick’s been down this road before so he’s wise enough to know that it can happen where a team don’t quite retain that edge, I’m pleased that our focus was clear.

“It’s important to show signs of what we’re about, what we’ve been about all season,” added Dyche, “My main mentality is winning is key, whatever you’re winning for.

“I spoke before the game, I felt it was very important to go about our business in the correct manner. I never doubted it for a second if I’m honest.”

why is that then ? is he going somewhere ? why would anyone remember a team who just gets to a higher division ? !!!! you need to win a title at least or a trophy like the F A cup,or a League cup,when was the last time you had one of those ? one thing you really do need is a bloody ground fit for the premiership,,would you not say ?. you may be in the premiership division but your facilities are draconian,ARTE ET LABORE 1875,,a proper club,cheerio.

Ah, a football snob I was talking about in a previous post. I don't care what a ground is like (ours or anybody else's) or how big support is. The really weird thing is I believe that football is about what happens on the pitch. It's quite a radical idea, you get rewarded for winning games and playing well enough to achieve promotion/win trophies. We used to get jibes about having the best ground in the 4th division, an honour I don't want ever again. I appreciate you are having a go out of the usual jealousy but you really must get away from the mine's bigger than yours attitude. You were fortunate enough to have a benefactor who built you a decent (not great) ground and buy you a little success for a while but the golden days (sic) are gone now and you will have the best ground in the lower divisions soon once FFP kicks in.
Deal with it.

All your promotions are listed. You guys remember them and are proud of them. So are everybody else's. Why would it be any different for anybody else? The highest points for first and second are remembered by recording them in the history books. Dyche wants a record score of points for second place, so that it goes into the history books. So what's wrong with that? We won a trophy on Monday. You won one when you scraped through the playoffs to get into the Prem way back when. Is that not listed as an honour? Do you disown it now?

What has the state of a club's ground got to do with whether they enter the Prem or not? Provided it meets the criterion laid down by the Prem authorities, what's the problem?

Our current team is Prem standards and that makes us a "proper club". Your team isn't so your not a proper club.

funny thing is though l dont have a problem with Burnley getting promoted you deserved it but it really is time you upgraded the place,, if you had a genuine supporter of the late Jack Walker,s class with all the money in the world at the time then you would be able to bring your ground up to date,,get it sorted,

some good points but it does not get away from the fact that your ground needs to be brought into the 21 century and then maybe away supporters will call you a prem club of the highest order,,now would,n that be nice ?

Divvy57, you are fast becoming the serial name-changer of the Blackburn Apologista. ALL your comments above centre on the straw you are desperately clutching at; the ground. That really is the answer of a desperate man. Burnley prefer to put their assets on the field, not have expensive structures from which to watch mid-table dross. Since Burnley live in the REAL world - not the Fantasy Island world of the super-wealthy taking care of all the fripperies of life - then they have to apply the harsh realities of the real world; cut your cloth accordingly.

What Peter tells you about Paul tells you more about Peter than about Paul so what you're telling us about you in all the above does you absolutely no credit whatsoever.

ALL your comments above centre on the straw you are desperately clutching at; the ground. That really is the answer of a desperate man. Burnley prefer to put their assets on the field, not have expensive structures from which to watch mid-table dross. Since Burnley live in the REAL world - not the Fantasy Island world of the super-wealthy taking care of all the fripperies of life - then they have to apply the harsh realities of the real world; cut your cloth accordingly. What Peter tells you about Paul tells you more about Peter than about Paul so what you're telling us about you in all the above does you absolutely no credit whatsoever. Chris P Bacon

Incidentally I think the Turf is a decent ground. Half of it is new, a quarter of it is okay and the only pile of pants is the away end and I don't care about that. Away fans complain about the state of our ground when they only have experience of the one dodgy part. I would sooner have money spent on the field of play rather than making away fans comfortable.

Most said Burnley would be relegated, they were wrong. The season has not started, who knows how it will play out, PL clubs have their own FFP to work towards. As for the state of one stand, if it passes a safety inspection, fit for purpose. I go to watch what's on the pitch, that's my passion.

you may be premier league for a season but after your flirtation with the big boys it will be back down to earth with a bump,,get your ground sorted and people may take you serious,
What about the wooden seats at Anfield. Or it that Club / Stadium not a 'proper club' or up to Wowvers high standards?

The deciding factors as to weather or not a team is taken seriously is how they manage their affairs and compete on the pitch.

I rest my case!

Noddy, wind your neck in pal.

We beat you.

We're promoted to the Premier League.

We stopped you from reaching the play-off's.

Our ground is perfectly fine. And should we choose to make improvements we have the finances available to do so.

You have nothing left.

Money spent on away supporters facilities or money spent on away end improvements? No contest. No argument. As I've gone on about for ages and some on here totally agree, it's what's on the pitch that matters. I used to be a Longsider and would gladly go back to those cold and drafty days (with a much better atmosphere) if it meant the difference between the Prem and League One.
Let Rovers enjoy themselves in the lower divisions for a few years, visiting grounds that would not look out of place in the sixties, then have home matches in comfort with no atmosphere against the Doncasters and Rochdales of this world. I don't give a toss if Burnley do no ground improvements this side of doomsday. Football is, or should be, a man's game and if you need comfy seats and carpeted steps stay at home and watch football on tv.

........ and beaten at home by Burnley FC, who then went up to the Premier League and prevented Blackburn from scraping into the play-off's.

Once of a day you would have said that was a Burnley fans wet dream, well if it is its just come true.

Luck wont be necessary, we have Sean Dyche. Mid-table is where we're heading while you circus clowns edge ever closer to the joys of administration.

Enjoy getting turned over by Brentford next season!
