Double deal creates perfect blend for Burnley boss Dyche

BURNLEY boss Sean Dyche believes he is getting the right blend of players for the Premier League, after completing a double swoop for Marvin Sordell and Matt Taylor.

The deal for Sordell was finalised more than a week after the striker was due to make his £500,000 move from Bolton, due to a hold-up in the administration of the 23-year-old’s Wanderers exit.

Former West Ham United midfielder Taylor’s free transfer went through smoothly, meanwhile, to double the number of Burnley summer signings, with winger Michael Kightly and goalkeeper Matt Gilks the first through the door.

Dyche expects Taylor to bring the benefit of his top flight experience, while he is excited at the prospect of Sordell rekindling his career at Turf Moor.

Sordell blossomed under Dyche’s watch at Watford, first as a youth team player before progressing to become a £3million-plus signing for Owen Coyle’s Bolton in January 2012 on the strength of scoring 25 goals in a season-and-a-half at Vicarage Road.

The price tag proved tough to cope with for the former England Under 21 international, however, and he spent all of last season on loan at Charlton Athletic.

But Dyche believes he can bring the best out in Sordell again.

“He has had a tough couple of years over at Bolton after going there for a big fee, but he’s a young man and when you have an awkward time that can teach you as much as anything about yourself,” he said. “It’s just about giving him that freedom to express himself as a young footballer.

“There is talent there and that’s important and I think he knows that it is a good chance for him to re-invent or add to what he is.”

As for Taylor, Dyche is looking for the versatile midfielder to bring the benefit of his experience, having played Premier League football for the last 11 seasons with Portsmouth, Bolton and West Ham.

The 32-year-old has penned a two-year deal, and Dyche said: “We know we are going into what is arguably the best league in the world and we also know that it helps to have experience at that level.

“Matt has an abundance of that, as well as being a very talented player.

“Certainly there is a lot of football left in him.”

Taylor knows there are no guarantees for selection, despite the wealth of experience he brings.

“Personally, I just want to be on the teamsheet, but you have to earn that at any club you go to, so I will be working hard, as everybody will,” he said. “Hopefully I can hold down a position in the team, but that will only come through hard work and earning the respect of the players here.”

He added: “When I spoke to the manager here and had a good chat about his philosophy, it was a great move for me. I had three-and-a-half wonderful years at Bolton and I like this part of the country, so it was an easy decision to make.”

Sordell, whose deal could keep him at Turf Moor until 2017, echoed that sentiment.

“I know the manager very well,” he said. “My first encounter with him was when I was about 16 and he was youth team manager at Watford. As I progressed at Watford he did the same. He’s an excellent manager. He’s done very well for this club and now I want to come here and do well for him.”

2 very astute signings that not only bring quality and experience to the side but show the board are 100% behind Dyche and his football philosophy. We were brilliant last season and anyone with a spare tenner would do well to take it off the bookies who just like last year seem to want to donate money to the good people of Burnley.

I hope he knows what he's doing with these two, Sordell who couldn't get a kick at Bolton and Taylor likewise at West Ham. at least Sordell is young enough to change his game up a bit but if he can score ten in the championship means he's good for two or three in the prem.
After all, two Bolton rejects doesn't inspire confidence. Look where they are. Still if these are our marquee signings Chelsea will be bricking themselves.

Non of this makes any sense - how can you possibly say these 2 show the board are 100% behind Shorn Douche? By quirk of fate, this is his shot at the big time and may otherwise be forgotten. Do you really think he'll be happy with a Championship reserve and a last payday journeyman? If you really want Premier League experience just pop down the M65, we have loads - we're giving it for free here anyway. You're simply not good enough. We can at least use Sordell as a yardstick for Douche's ability rather than Howe, although looking at Barnes I wouldn't be soooo confident.

Its a good job I take none of this personally, I put it down to your head burying in the sand personality, that ignores the elephant in the room by looking through his problem vanishing ray bans.
We are stepping into the prem and after the board said they would back the manager and not make the same mistakes, they do exactly the same as last time.
Last time we were in the prem we spent 7.75 million on players, we signed stephen flecture, this time we have spent 2 million and signed marvin sordell for 500K
So it looks like we are making the same mistake of not backing the manager, resulting in him jumping ship when the next Bolton / Bournemouth come along. I expect lots of thumbs down, nobody likes the cold harsh reality pressing in their face like a custard pie at the circus. But you clowns just keep coming back for more like an outing on the sunshine bus. Its okay sticking your head out of the window and trailing your tongue in the wind like a Labrador, but if you keep doing it, there is a custard pie with your name on it already on its way.

Hey - the 'we' in reference to the judgment of Douche's ability to develop Sordell is a compliment of sorts as I believe there is a chance though it in no way implies I'm one of you. That said, I put lower odds on him alleviating world famine with 5 loaves and 2 fish. Cue one of your blinkered brethren asking if he actually did that while at Watford.

So in your head a player that in his last 56 appearances in the championship scored 11 goals, will be more successful in the prem because his manager has ginger hair? You are obviously a football genius.

Well there's a lot to be said for not splurging large millions and 20-30 grand a week on players who if you get relegated drag the club into massive debt to the point where it's either buy out their lucrative contracts or watch them sulk in training and drag the club into league 2 - oh hang on -,didn't you guys actually do that? Point made for us - Blackburn has no transfer policy this season except repair the damage caused by the trasfer policy the season before, and the one before that, and the one before that. Then add the compo paid to sacked managers - Yeh a beacon of light your club is. Bust - almost.

Non of this makes any sense - how can you possibly say these 2 show the board are 100% behind Shorn Douche? By quirk of fate, this is his shot at the big time and may otherwise be forgotten. Do you really think he'll be happy with a Championship reserve and a last payday journeyman? If you really want Premier League experience just pop down the M65, we have loads - we're giving it for free here anyway. You're simply not good enough. We can at least use Sordell as a yardstick for Douche's ability rather than Howe, although looking at Barnes I wouldn't be soooo confident.

Take the Ritalin and your autistic obsession and twitches will subside enough for you to stop biting your own cheek. It hurts doesn't it - it being able to eat or sleep. Just relax your jaw slightly and pop one in.
Very good but you haven't answered a footballing question with any substance. A bit like your 'premier league' signings. Wonder what Ings is making of this 'progress'.
Sordell has been signed to replace Ings. Taylor played for Pompey, Bowton and West Ham...great Prem experience. Enjoy your season in the sun...a harsh winter will follow for you guys, a big test for your manager and board.

Eighth best after winning one game? But we played four games. We won three and lost one, not "won one game". Semi-final in the European Cup for Burnley FC. Trelleborg for Blackburn. So, "no one can ever" becomes "someone did". And we can say "someone else did too" - because Wolves did this in 1959/60.

Yes but Rob in the rattling heads of your average Blackburn fan the rules were changed in 1998-99 season to allow Blackbun to not only be retrospectively crowned champions of Europe (Leeds won under this rule change too) but the FA allowed them to claim that trophy before it really existed in the current understanding.

It makes them sick, physically sick, to see how far ahead of their shabby little tin-pot laughingstock of a football club we are, and they have nothing left. That's why the likes of Barry from Wilpshire with his multiple ID issues is now bordering on a full and thorough nervous breakdown, whilst the other jealous goons such as Darener dip in and out occasionally but given that they still possess the emotion of shame, are soon dismissed.

I'm all for it personally, let them continue to come on here and degrade themselves in public by commenting on their bigger and better Premier League rivals, it is nothing but a jealous itch that must be scratched. We've taken everything from them and I for one enjoy seeing them squirm as the new season approaches and their worst nightmare is about to play out.

No, two. No, 1961. But as an ardent Burnley fan you'd already know that. Hang on .............

in those days, only the best team entered, per country. That's 1 team entering per country instead of 4 as it is today. In those days the countries that could submit a team faced a tougher criteria. Only 16 nations rather than 32 as we have today (kept teams like trelleborg out who didn't have a chance....). First round 16 teams. Second round/QF 8 teams. 2 games per round. In Burnley's case thus 4 games.

Well, no. Other than Wolves who did it before us, no one can do it now. That's because there are more clubs admitted, aren't there AP4B/TTT/Gollum? We won 3 games out of 4. Losing 5-4 in the QF is not getting tubbed. Silly little former Hobbit you.

It was harder in those days wasn't it? You have more options to take part now, 32 teams rather than 16. You have a group shot at this in the first round now so you can absorb defeats can't you? It gives teams like Trelleborg a chance ....

Rovers blew with it a £100m set up. We achieved top 8 in a tougher environment on 5/-.

Man Utd won it in 1968 the tough way. They always say that was the best and toughest won of the three they've won. Chelsea won the modern version. They wouldn't know. Rovers blew it out of their ****. They wouldn't know either.

Here's a ditty to discuss with your many selves - Clarets winning promotion over 46 games, with the third smallest budget (truly sod all we are so tiny) of any of the 48 teams in the Championship and Division 1 combined, is bigger achievement than Rovers winning the Premiership on the back of tens of millions in 1995.

Burnley's signings. Lets look at the boards past performance whilst these two guys have been Chairman and Hoos has been CE. Everyone of them a million or less. Austin and Ings, £1m. Ross Wallace £800K. Treacy 580K. Shackell £600K. Tripps £400K. Mee £250K. Marney £600K. With the exception of Marney, all signed by the same purchase committee; that's one of the Chairmen (rotation), Lee Darnborough (Head of Recruitment) Hoos and the current manager. They take into account personality, age to price and medium-term resale value. Howe spent £4.63m. He didn't deliver on the field with the committee's players. Dyche did.

They then signed Kightly on loan, Vokes, Jones and Heaton for sod all and added them to the squad. Blending these acquisitions, he got us promoted. In the meantime, Austin was sold and this financed these 12 purchases. So, cost neutral! Ashley barnes cost £450,000 - well done the Recruitment Team. He scored the goal against Wigan that took us up. £120m - great payback Ashley!

Smashing purchase track record. Principles are no different in the Prem. Huge gonads investing wisely.

No, two. No, 1961. But as an ardent Burnley fan you'd already know that. Hang on .............

in those days, only the best team entered, per country. That's 1 team entering per country instead of 4 as it is today. In those days the countries that could submit a team faced a tougher criteria. Only 16 nations rather than 32 as we have today (kept teams like trelleborg out who didn't have a chance....). First round 16 teams. Second round/QF 8 teams. 2 games per round. In Burnley's case thus 4 games.

They have a silver salver in the Trophy room at the Turf. Its affixed to the wall recording this. But as an ardent Burnley fan you already know that. So why would they want a plaque on the wall? Hang on........
Having one decent team out of every decent league in Europe made it easier to finish in the last eight yer goon.
Its almost as stupid as having the tour de france in the uk, it'd be like holding wimbledon in manchester, the clues in the name, still I bet that is where crispy is, cracking one off.
You are so fond of reminding your fans to stick to topic. You have failed to do that in your reply here. You have drifted. Naughty boy. Easier now than then in European Cup stumpy. More games make sit easier. You only played Alpha teams in a knock-out - deliver or die. Now, you can obfuscate (like you do all the time!) lose one in a group, draw one, and still go through. Then play a lower grade side than yourselves by seeding and go through again.. All about money cupcake.

Your favourite repetitive tick - looks like we''ll know soon precious, best get your pads on just in case. All sales of paracetamol banned in Blackurn as a precautionary measure and blood banks on standby for outbreak of wrist slitting. Has he signed yet? Has he? Has Ings signed yet?

Pity we could have offloaded him for 7 million before anyone found out he is a one season championship wonder just like Nugent / Matt Derbyshire was, just think about Nugents and derbyshires career and how Ings career is becoming a mirror image of it. Great in the championship, under 21 call up, pants in the premier league. Reduced fee, mass blubbing about how it isn't fair as team get relegated. We should have cashed in

"before anyone found out he was a one season wonder". We don't know that yet. This board, recruitment team and Dyche have good record to date. They wanted him. Their track record versus your keyboard testicles? That's you dropped.
