Dyche: Finances mean Clarets don’t need to sell star players

SEAN Dyche believes Burnley are in a stronger position financially to keep star players like Danny Ings.

After Jay Rodriguez made a club record move to Southampton two summers ago and Charlie Austin was sold on the eve of last season, Ings is the latest to be tipped for a move away from Turf Moor, despite firing the Clarets to promotion.

His 26-goal season and emergence on the international scene with England Under 21s has made the striker the subject of interest from a number of Premier League clubs.

But Dyche hopes Burnley’s own top flight status, and financial rewards, will give the club a better chance of retaining their sought after players.

“I think the players are happy, I think they’ve enjoyed their season, I think they enjoy what we try to offer them on a daily basis and when they play games. I don’t think there’s a thirst for players to leave.

“If they do then it will be for the right reasons for the club.

“The main thing about Charlie was the board came out and made it clear that had to be done, it was just getting the right market price at that time.

“It’s different now. The finances are a whole different ball game than last season.

“The club are a lot more secure financially, quite obviously, so we have a lot more power with the contracts and the players we’ve got.”
Dyche acknowledged, however, that interest in his players was inevitable because of the success the Clarets had enjoyed.

MORE TOP STORIES:

“When you’ve got good players, the team does well, you win; when your team does well and you win you get predators. It’s as simple as that.

“It’s not so easy for people to be predators around, say, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea because they are so powerful they can keep players, the finances are so powerful they can reward them with huge contracts.

“We’re not there yet. We can operate in the market and secure players, but there are certain situations that go out of your control.”

But as regards the future of existing players – particularly the likes of Ings and Kieran Trippier, who both have only one year left on their current contract – unlike previous years there is not a necessity to sell to balance the books.

“We’re not in a position where we have to do anything now. We can stand a bit firmer on various different contracts and players, and equally on the ones coming in,” said Dyche, adding that he can now also look to a new market to recruit and strengthen his squad through having a transfer kitty for the first time since taking charge in October 2012.

“We’re in a healthy position to be allowed to align players who were probably out of our thinking a year ago.”

Burnley have been linked with Wolves defender Richard Stearman, but it is understood there has not been any contact between the clubs regarding the 26-year-old.

Stearman is out of contract at the end of next month, although Wolves are keen to agree an extension for their homegrown player after securing a return to the Championship.

However, manager Kenny Jackett is said to face competition for his signature from Middlesbrough and Celtic.

Stearman has made 186 appearances since joining Wolves from Leicester in 2008.

Dyche makes it clear they are in a stronger position, but acknowledges that it may not see of everyone.
That said, at least we won't have the worry of administration when the FFP rules kick in eh?
UTC - in the place where we belong, the Premier League!

lsn't it nice that our little club can fend off any cherry picking from the big boys for a change. All the squad look very happy and if Sean can use his usual expertise in signing some good young and experienced hungry players, l have every confidence we can be quite competitive, even in the premier league.

I'm not sure we can fend off the interest Dublin, if a big club comes in for any of our players they can offer 3-4 years at silly money. Whilst Dyche might be dead right about how happy this bunch are it's also certain that we'll lose players, the only issue is when.

I think we'll do a lot better next season than the media and the think, if we can add a bit of quality, get through pre-season without losing key players and then to January looking strong enough to stay up we won't have as much to fear, unlike Blackburn who thought that FFP was negotiable and are in for a major shock, and clubs like Leeds, who like Blackburn, were deluded enough to think they can defy all known rules of profit and loss. So yes there's a risk, Dyche as you'd expect is underplaying it. But the risks we face are nothing compared to the absolute devastation soon to be unleashed on clubs that have been run like a drunk runs a bar.

If we'd stayed down we'd expect to lose 3-4 of our players. We'd not have top flight football to offer their replacements. We'd still be trying to reduce costs. In short, we'd be Blackburn but without the axe of FFP waiting to fall. We should relax about losing players, I really hope we don't, but Dyche doesn't worry about things that are out of his control, we're in a great place, with a great manager and a great future. Of course if you were a Blackburn fan this would be rubbing salt in the wounds, but that club has been self harming for at least five years, what will be will be with individual players, we'll have rumours but let'ws see.

Why o why did they not tie them down on improved deals at Christmas, with improvements in wages if we went up and a get out clause if we didn't. Speculate to accumulate is not a language our board understands which was very evident with Austin.
On the positive side of things Mr Hoos tells us that the rise in season ticket prices will allow us to buy 2 players, how about giving Tripps and Ingsy the deals that secure their services at the Turf then. In any business there are people who contribute more to the success of the company and rightly they can earn more.

Unless you are a large club with huge gates and are well positioned, Arsenal and Liverpool for example, or cash injection junkies, like Man City, you can always pay more than the small to middling Prem clubs.

Ings is potentially a prime example of a player in the Burnley tradition. Bought for a fee or raised through the ranks, developed by the club and sold for a profit. He may well be no different.

What we know is the tradition will continue. Another will be developed to take his place. And this time we hit the Prem making a small profit. And the Prem offers £120m to us over the next 12 months.

These are good times. This manager will do his talented utmost to keep us in the top flight. With this board working with him, there is no way on earth that we will spend £120m in 12 months. We will retain a good deal of the difference between the £60m paid last time and the £120m we receive this time.

If we end up back in the Championship we will have around £30m to £40m to play with, self-correcting payment contracts for the players and £30m in parachute payments. Its not exactly hardship. That was the WBA model - up and down to accumulate cash reserves. Then stay up.

If we stay up, of course, its happy days. All good options.

Have faith Clarets. Stability is here and more beckons.

Sean Dyche is right about most things and his attitude about changing things you can change is right. There is no point in any walk of life worrying about that over which you have no control. He has no control over rich clubs with stupid amounts of money attempting (maybe successfully) to poach players, that is the case with most small clubs like us and Rovers etc. I trust him to make the right decisions and work his magic with whatever he's got come the new season. I believe we will keep everyone we want to keep, why would they want to go to sit on the bench at Liverpool, hoping for the odd game, when they could play regular prem football with us? Of course they could leave for the money, in which case we don't want mercenaries.
Our only hope of real success is that one day Sky will pull the plug on the money it gives to the prem and rich Arabs lose interest in football. Only then will sanity return to the game. I suppose it's just a dream but you never know.

House Claret, your last paragraph is the most salient and truth-ridden thing that's been written on here that i can remember (along with my writings of the same ilk, of course!😔).

The meeting that Bill Fox held with Jack walker in 1990 set off a bomb and the ripples are still ploughing through football's pond. Abramovitch, Sheik Mansul etc are the ricochet.

Rovers were once, for a time, a grass-roots traditional club. All this started with them. If, one day, the statue to Jack Walker is taken down and a replacement statue is erected to Bill Fox, then perhaps a new ripple well start.

I won't be holding my breath.

The article was dated then, however the speculation is still on going and I really think Ings is wanting to go where he can secure premiership football for more than just one season.

its a terrible shame that the club cant hold of players but I don't blame them for leaving to be honest, its never going to move forward as the dilapidated ground shows, its been like that since.......cricky a long time ago!!!

If you were to spend time doing some proper research you would find that we have 8 home grown academy players in our squad!! How many do you have?

Does it still hurt?

Is it still raw?

Can you still remember every painful and embarrassing minute of it?

Do you still cry yourself to sleep at night?

Do you still see us in our thousands bouncing in the Darwen End as Danny Ings scores the winner?

Do you still remember the moment your bowels gave way as the full time whistle went and your whole world imploded?

Blackburn Rovers 1 - 2 Burnley.

No matter how you try to present yourself via your online persona, we all know what you really are, holed up in your one-bedroomed Shadsworth flea-pit for months on end, bleary-eyed and pale-skinned, festering in your own filth, your urine-stained carpet littered with empty pizza boxes and cigarette ends, your threadbare Alan Shearer y-fronts stained with Pot Noodle and all manner of bodily fluids, the scent of defeat lingering heavy in the air while your nicotine stained ten-year old Dell churns away in the corner as you search the Burnley articles desperately looking for that one chink in the armour of the team that has ruined your life.

Console yourself however with the fact the intense pain you feel on a daily basis brings joy to all readers of the Burnley articles and your every comment on said articles purveys the agony of your entire futile existence in the wake of a defeat you believed would never happen. Each time you bleat out a desperate and jealous comment I simply feel only pity towards such a lonely individual and hope that one day you might re-join society in some way.

Chin-up.

No matter how you try to present yourself via your online persona, we all know what you really are, holed up in your one-bedroomed Shadsworth flea-pit for months on end, bleary-eyed and pale-skinned, festering in your own filth, your urine-stained carpet littered with empty pizza boxes and cigarette ends, your threadbare Alan Shearer y-fronts stained with Pot Noodle and all manner of bodily fluids, the scent of defeat lingering heavy in the air while your nicotine stained ten-year old Dell churns away in the corner as you search the Burnley articles desperately looking for that one chink in the armour of the team that has ruined your life. Console yourself however with the fact the intense pain you feel on a daily basis brings joy to all readers of the Burnley articles and your every comment on said articles purveys the agony of your entire futile existence in the wake of a defeat you believed would never happen. Each time you bleat out a desperate and jealous comment I simply feel only pity towards such a lonely individual and hope that one day you might re-join society in some way. Chin-up. Super_Clarets

Just a matter of playing the waiting game as it won't be long before the Blackburn Fan's only banter line is trotted out now their 34 year comfort blanket has gone:- 'Can't wait to watch you get stuffed every week on MOTD'

How embarrassing they are - we basically easily achieve what they have dreamed of all season on a fraction of the budget and have showed them up both on and off the pitch, and their bestest ever banter is all about us getting beat on the major footballing weekend show - a show that they will NEVER EVER appear on again.

Our only hope of real success is that one day Sky will pull the plug on the money it gives to the prem and rich Arabs lose interest in football. Only then will sanity return to the game. I suppose it's just a dream but you never know.
House Claret, your last paragraph is the most salient and truth-ridden thing that's been written on here that i can remember (along with my writings of the same ilk, of course!😔).

The meeting that Bill Fox held with Jack walker in 1990 set off a bomb and the ripples are still ploughing through football's pond. Abramovitch, Sheik Mansul etc are the ricochet.

Rovers were once, for a time, a grass-roots traditional club. All this started with them. If, one day, the statue to Jack Walker is taken down and a replacement statue is erected to Bill Fox, then perhaps a new ripple well start.

I won't be holding my breath.
Unfortunately, Rob, I am old enough to remember when football was a game and it was a fairly level playing field (no pun intended). I still love the game but what we have now is just a business-ridden thing which has become filled with greed. Of course there were always richer clubs and bigger clubs due to varying levels of support but the gap was never the absolute gulf that it is now. I can remember when Man United were just another fairly ordinary club with exceptionally huge support. But for many years we were the better side, winning the championship in the process. I recall the Aston Villas and Leeds Uniteds of this world being huge clubs, now Leeds are where they are and Villa are just prem survivalists. Because of the way the prem is arranged, financially, it just perpetuates the whole financial imbalance. You have to finish near the top to get the big bucks and you can only do that if you have the big bucks. Consequently the rich, as they say, get richer.
United recently stated how much they would "lose" by not playing in the champions league next season, because their budgeting automatically assumes that they will be in it every season. How predictable is that. Shouldn't that money just be a bonus and not a "given".
I am convinced that we will one day have a closed shop top flight with a handful of clubs playing for honours with the rest just playing a series of pointless friendlies with no fear of relegation.
THAT WOULD BE MY IDEA OF A FOOTBALL NIGHTMARE.

Where have you got £2 million from? Austin was sold for £4.5 million, the only lies on here are coming from your jealous fingers.

Please show me where it has been 'confirmed above' that Ings is set to leave, as I can see no such confirmation.

On the positive side of things Mr Hoos tells us that the rise in season ticket prices will allow us to buy 2 players, how about giving Tripps and Ingsy the deals that secure their services at the Turf then. In any business there are people who contribute more to the success of the company and rightly they can earn more.
The rise in season ticket prices won't even allow you to pay the wages of a mediocre Premiership player. Do the math. If you can.

AP4B full marks for your effort. While you try to point out that their beloved club has flown too close too the sun and them and their 8365 fellow 6-fingered deluded brethren cannot hope to establish themselves, let alone compete in the Prem, they have to sink to childish name calling. It'd be easy to point out they're seemingly a pair of fantasist fun runners thinking they're Mo Farah (suppose bit like thinking Burnley are any cop), but I won't.

Unfortunately for them, neither are true. Just give it time. Future turmoil beckons......

Have always been glad I'm not from Burnley and hence a Burnley fan but I would be terrified now, with that terrible squad spankings every week.
That article you link is dated 10th April. That's 6 weeks ago you shi.t-for-brains.

You would be terrified because you are gutless. And you judge it through your Rovers eyes too. You are a cash-injection monkey. Its your only answer. Its in your DNA.

We live in the real world. If we have to let him go, we will. In the Burnley tradition we will bring another through the ranks or make a judicious purchase. Then maybe sell them on too. Its called living and succeeding within your means. We are good at it. What division are we in you entrail?
Are you ok? Do you need a lie down? Be careful with your blood pressure there, that's a good boy.

The article was dated then, however the speculation is still on going and I really think Ings is wanting to go where he can secure premiership football for more than just one season.

its a terrible shame that the club cant hold of players but I don't blame them for leaving to be honest, its never going to move forward as the dilapidated ground shows, its been like that since.......cricky a long time ago!!!

If you were to spend time doing some proper research you would find that we have 8 home grown academy players in our squad!! How many do you have?

I rest my case.....bye bye little boy
Does it still hurt?

Is it still raw?

Can you still remember every painful and embarrassing minute of it?

Do you still cry yourself to sleep at night?

Do you still see us in our thousands bouncing in the Darwen End as Danny Ings scores the winner?

Do you still remember the moment your bowels gave way as the full time whistle went and your whole world imploded?

Blackburn Rovers 1 - 2 Burnley.

No matter how you try to present yourself via your online persona, we all know what you really are, holed up in your one-bedroomed Shadsworth flea-pit for months on end, bleary-eyed and pale-skinned, festering in your own filth, your urine-stained carpet littered with empty pizza boxes and cigarette ends, your threadbare Alan Shearer y-fronts stained with Pot Noodle and all manner of bodily fluids, the scent of defeat lingering heavy in the air while your nicotine stained ten-year old Dell churns away in the corner as you search the Burnley articles desperately looking for that one chink in the armour of the team that has ruined your life.

Console yourself however with the fact the intense pain you feel on a daily basis brings joy to all readers of the Burnley articles and your every comment on said articles purveys the agony of your entire futile existence in the wake of a defeat you believed would never happen. Each time you bleat out a desperate and jealous comment I simply feel only pity towards such a lonely individual and hope that one day you might re-join society in some way.

Chin-up.
Blimy did you get help writing all that or have you done it over a couple of visits to the job centre internet?

can't believe how excited your getting with one victory, but you are an angry little man (then again you do live in Burney so I guess its understandable) so I best lay off now otherwise there will be anther domestic violence case in Burnley and you will be spending another night behind bars after beating your wife (who is also your sister), then again it will be better than spending a night in your cesspool!!!!

Is it -
a) profits made from careful of the club or;
b) Jack Walker's cash injection

Ewoodlegend, Fake Villa etc etc

Your last period of success was, broadly, 1992 to 2002. The high-point was the Prem title of 1995. That's 20 years next year and 1995. That was 81 years since you last won it.

In those 81 years we spent 41 years in the top flight. You spent 39 years. We won the 2nd Division title twice. You didn't win it once. We were Champions of England twice. You didn't win it once. We both won the FA Cup. We appeared in 3 finals, you in 2. We reached the QF of the European Cup. You didn't. You stumbled in what was effectively Round One, with Trelleborg.

We can all pick periods and say look how successful we are. Who knows what the future holds. What we do know about the past is that Lawrence Cotton bankrolled your 1912 and 1914 Titles and Jack Walker bankrolled your 1995 title. We also know that Burnley won what they won without being bankrolled.

You talk about jealousy. We actually are talking about a level playing field.






1992 to 2004 is a hey were in the past. You often mention how we are going to be relegated and you lot are going to the Prem. You accept that there must be a future of some sort.

You make mention of the future sometimes. Usually it involves Rovers reaching the Prem again.
