Clarets boss Dyche will not give up on Lansbury signing

BURNLEY are looking to add to their squad before their blockbuster opening day bout with Chelsea, and have not given up on landing targets Craig Dawson and Henri Lansbury, despite resistance from their clubs.

The Clarets have had three offers turned down to date by West Brom for defender Dawson, while Nottingham Forest stated they have no interest in selling their influential midfielder.

Player power may ultimately prove to be in Burnley’s favour, with Dawson having already submitted a transfer request, which was turned down, while Lansbury has snubbed a new deal at the City Ground.

In the meantime, Burnley boss Dyche continues to play a patient waiting game as the big kick-off approaches.

But he insists the club will not be held to ransom to land their targets.

“We have been hopeful of adding players for the last few weeks,” he said.

“Some clubs just keep throwing money at it until it happens and possibly that was the Ross McCormack (from Leeds to Fulham) situation in that they just kept going until eventually they just say ‘yeah’. In theory the board could do that but that would be detrimental in the long run and this could endanger the future of the club.

“If we suddenly brought in a big signing on double everyone else then I do not see how that is helpful to the group. I have made it quite clear to the group how we go about our business.”

He added: “There are a few things we hope to get over the line, but I have been saying that for a couple of weeks. It is not just tittle-tattle that I am throwing around. “There are deals I thought would be tomorrow, tomorrow and then a week later you realise a week has gone. That is the nature of what happens when you are a cub that does not just go ‘there is a load of money, there’s a load of wages, get him in.’”

Have to say this lad is quite a talent, seen him play a few times he's a class act and would be a top addition for you lot. Looks like Dawson is also pushing for a move to the Turf, if you sign them both up you'll be looking like a decent side. Looks like my earlier comments could have been a little premature. Dyche really does seem to know what he's doing which is more than can be said for our Mr Bowyer who seems to be losing the trust of the fans he worked so hard to gain last season, all this talk of promotion is setting him up for an almighty fall and signing poor players rejected by League One clubs isnt helping matters.

These clubs will try and screw us, just like leeds did to fulham, but if we can hold out, it proves you can get a fairer deal all round.

look at the other teams who are generally thought will struggle this season and their squads and then compare to Burnley- work ethic, team spirit and hard graft alone may be enough to get out of the championship but experience and flair will be required to keep us in the Premier League

I think we need to just be a little bit more lenient with our money,
Why not throw in another £500k if thats what West Brom want?
Dyche is right, we don't need to throw silly money around like other clubs, but I think at the same time if these are the two players he really wants why not push a little bit more forward?

Very sensible. Small money to spend requires big patience. The Prem money has not landed yet, so we have to be super-prudent on how much we borrow to spend. All borrowing has interest to pay too. We must accept that there is a strong possibility that we will go down at the end of the season. There's no point in borrowing to blow money from what is the smallest budget in the Prem. Others who dropped down and have not come back did so because of how much they spent trying to stay there Barnsley, Wolves etc. I we stay up, then absolutely wonderful. If we don't then we have the cash added to the parachute payments to relaunch us - and stronger than when we last cam up financially.

Agree - whats £500k if it gives you a better chance of staying up - we never going spend £10m on a championship striker so Dyche wil look carefully at whats out there within the budget but sometimes a gamble or two has to be made.

Why does Dyche think he's in a position to comment on other clubs transfer business?

If Fulham want to spend £11 million on McCormack that's their choice. Just like when Rovers spent £8 million on Rhodes and then gave him a contract extension.

I wonder what Dyche would give to be able to spend some serious money strengthening the squad rather than waste days and weeks of preparation haggling over a few hundred grand out of a £120 million warchest. What's the point in having all that money?

For some reason Burnley either can't or won't spend serious money. They were priced out of Troy Deeney from Watford, offered less money than Derby for Craig Bryson, and are now struggling to pay the required rate for both Craig Dawson and Henri Lansbury.

Lets put it into perspective here. Burnley aren't being asked to cough up £15 million for these lads or put them on £100k a week. £8 million should land them both. If Burnley aren't willing or able to pay that then perhaps they should look at alternatives. After all, we're only talking about a West Brom bench warmer and a Championship player. We're hardly talking big name marquee signings here.

'£120 million warchest' - it's ill-informed stupid comments like these that are part of the problem. The £120 million is the figure that we would get assuming we were relegated next season OVER FOUR YEARS including parachute payments.

Simple rule of economics - we pay what WE think the players are worth, and if the selling clubs get greedy or don't play ball then fine, that is their choice, but we can't and won't risk our financial future.

You bring up the Craig Bryson situation as if it is a tragedy that we didn't offer a 28 year old player £25k a week on a FIVE YEAR deal like Derby did. There is no way I would want a player like that tied to the club on a massive wage with no prospect of getting rid of him. Look at Blackburn's recent transfer policy - Danny Murphy, Leon Best, Dixon Etuhu, Goodwillie etc etc etc - all non-playing members of your squad turned into millionaires by the generosity (Stupidity) of your owners offering high value, long term deals.

Yes we were priced out of the Troy Deeney transfer, there is no way on God's earth that I want us to spend £8-£10 million on him or anyone else (Leicester have just spent £10 million on a 16 goal 28 year old Championship striker that has never played in the top flight in either England or Spain) - these are crazy figures being spent by clubs that all have rich owners that can bankroll transfer fees and more importantly, the wage demands that go with these signings.

As I have mentioned above we do not have multi-billionaire board members that can finance a spending spree so we have to be prudent, and to be honest it is quite amusing to me to see Blackburn fans commenting about Burnley's lack of ambition when they have spent the grand total of NOTHING WHATSOEVER in the transfer window.

well balanced piece that - I would rather go back down and still be financially stable than go down having spent millions on untried championship players like Bryson and Deeney and being left skint like a few clubs have bee in the past trying to stay up.

You bring up the Craig Bryson situation as if it is a tragedy that we didn't offer a 28 year old player £25k a week on a FIVE YEAR deal like Derby did. There is no way I would want a player like that tied to the club on a massive wage with no prospect of getting rid of him. Look at Blackburn's recent transfer policy - Danny Murphy, Leon Best, Dixon Etuhu, Goodwillie etc etc etc - all non-playing members of your squad turned into millionaires by the generosity (Stupidity) of your owners offering high value, long term deals.

Yes we were priced out of the Troy Deeney transfer, there is no way on God's earth that I want us to spend £8-£10 million on him or anyone else (Leicester have just spent £10 million on a 16 goal 28 year old Championship striker that has never played in the top flight in either England or Spain) - these are crazy figures being spent by clubs that all have rich owners that can bankroll transfer fees and more importantly, the wage demands that go with these signings.

As I have mentioned above we do not have multi-billionaire board members that can finance a spending spree so we have to be prudent, and to be honest it is quite amusing to me to see Blackburn fans commenting about Burnley's lack of ambition when they have spent the grand total of NOTHING WHATSOEVER in the transfer window.
Well said Chuck. Have to agree with the prudent approach particularly with the financial restrictions now in place. You cant put a value on sensible business planning and you only need to look at the shambles my club has become in recent season with the signings you point out being another reason why we'll suffer the wrath of FFP in January, and rightly so I say. Our owners need to understand we cant be run in such a sloppy fashion going forward, the ridiculous contracts handed out will be the end of us unless drastic action is taken. I would much rather be a debt free well run club with a sound board of directors moving my club forward with patience and common sense than than a laughingstock run by that shower of animals we've got in the boardroom. Oh for the days of John Williams. Please come back John, we need you!

Listen I dislike Burnley just as much as you, the difference is that I have the decency to admit they performed admirably last season and I can only hope our own club can follow the methods they put in place to achieve what they did.

If Fulham want to spend £11 million on McCormack that's their choice. Just like when Rovers spent £8 million on Rhodes and then gave him a contract extension.

For some reason Burnley either can't or won't spend serious money. They were priced out of Troy Deeney from Watford, offered less money than Derby for Craig Bryson, and are now struggling to pay the required rate for both Craig Dawson and Henri Lansbury.

Lets put it into perspective here. Burnley aren't being asked to cough up £15 million for these lads or put them on £100k a week. £8 million should land them both. If Burnley aren't willing or able to pay that then perhaps they should look at alternatives. After all, we're only talking about a West Brom bench warmer and a Championship player. We're hardly talking big name marquee signings here.
The weed they are selling in Royston Vasey must be strong this week when you read comments like this.

Oh right. Glad you cleared that up.

I seem to remember that after Burnley were promoted countless idiots on this website who kept harping on about how much money Burnley now had. Doesn't look like its done much good when you can't sign Championship players because you won't pay the going rate for young British players.

Burnley fans were practically salivating at the prospect of signing Craig Bryson. It was only after he decided to stay with Derby that his age and contract became an issue. Before that he was a brilliant potential signing that had been Derby's player of the year twice.

Fortunately for Blackburn the wasters you refer to have now all gone, and we are left with a talented young squad on a manageable wage structure. Notice no administration, liquidation etc.

I think you'll find that Rovers have spent more money than Burnley this summer. The only problem is that the money was used to pay off the wasters like Etuhu and Campbell. But rest assured the money was still provided by Venkys to benefit the club in the medium-long term, and the club will be a better place for it.

As you rightly say, Burnley are guaranteed £120 million over four years.
You'll actually find that if you want players from other clubs you will pay what the selling club thinks they are worth. If Burnley don't want to pay the asking price then that's their choice, but I now see that underhand tactics are being used by the club, such as making their interest in a player public in the hope that said player will try and force a move away from their club.

I'd love to see the reaction on here if Burnley ever did spend £8-£10 million on one player though.

Unfortunately even with Premier League football on offer, none of Deeney, Bryson, Dawson or Lansbury seem to be particularly desperate to move to Burnley.

Agree - whats £500k if it gives you a better chance of staying up - we never going spend £10m on a championship striker so Dyche wil look carefully at whats out there within the budget but sometimes a gamble or two has to be made.
Well we probably have the money, so far we have only spent 3 million if you believe reports and figures, yet when we went up last time we spent 7.5 million on Fletcher, Bikey & Mears.

Simple rule of economics - we pay what WE think the players are worth, and if the selling clubs get greedy or don't play ball then fine, that is their choice, but we can't and won't risk our financial future.

You bring up the Craig Bryson situation as if it is a tragedy that we didn't offer a 28 year old player £25k a week on a FIVE YEAR deal like Derby did. There is no way I would want a player like that tied to the club on a massive wage with no prospect of getting rid of him. Look at Blackburn's recent transfer policy - Danny Murphy, Leon Best, Dixon Etuhu, Goodwillie etc etc etc - all non-playing members of your squad turned into millionaires by the generosity (Stupidity) of your owners offering high value, long term deals.

Yes we were priced out of the Troy Deeney transfer, there is no way on God's earth that I want us to spend £8-£10 million on him or anyone else (Leicester have just spent £10 million on a 16 goal 28 year old Championship striker that has never played in the top flight in either England or Spain) - these are crazy figures being spent by clubs that all have rich owners that can bankroll transfer fees and more importantly, the wage demands that go with these signings.

As I have mentioned above we do not have multi-billionaire board members that can finance a spending spree so we have to be prudent, and to be honest it is quite amusing to me to see Blackburn fans commenting about Burnley's lack of ambition when they have spent the grand total of NOTHING WHATSOEVER in the transfer window.
Oh right. Glad you cleared that up.

I seem to remember that after Burnley were promoted countless idiots on this website who kept harping on about how much money Burnley now had. Doesn't look like its done much good when you can't sign Championship players because you won't pay the going rate for young British players.

Burnley fans were practically salivating at the prospect of signing Craig Bryson. It was only after he decided to stay with Derby that his age and contract became an issue. Before that he was a brilliant potential signing that had been Derby's player of the year twice.

Fortunately for Blackburn the wasters you refer to have now all gone, and we are left with a talented young squad on a manageable wage structure. Notice no administration, liquidation etc.

I think you'll find that Rovers have spent more money than Burnley this summer. The only problem is that the money was used to pay off the wasters like Etuhu and Campbell. But rest assured the money was still provided by Venkys to benefit the club in the medium-long term, and the club will be a better place for it.

As you rightly say, Burnley are guaranteed £120 million over four years.
You'll actually find that if you want players from other clubs you will pay what the selling club thinks they are worth. If Burnley don't want to pay the asking price then that's their choice, but I now see that underhand tactics are being used by the club, such as making their interest in a player public in the hope that said player will try and force a move away from their club.

I'd love to see the reaction on here if Burnley ever did spend £8-£10 million on one player though.

Unfortunately even with Premier League football on offer, none of Deeney, Bryson, Dawson or Lansbury seem to be particularly desperate to move to Burnley.
A little bit like Ronaldinhio and Beckham really wanted to come to Deadwood didn't they, I think the answer you are looking for is NO.

More shapeshifting from our following in Blackburn as usual and none of them can really contribute more than a couple of weak point. 1 - we can't afford players in the 8-10 million + bracket. Even in the PL we're not on our own there. 2 - the players we have brought in or want to are not PL level. Ignoring the fact that some have more PL experience than the Rovers squad nowadays, this seems to be saying only players who''ve played in the PL are good enough to play in the PL. So all of those who played elsewhere before they kicked a competitive ball in the PL fall short. There really are some numpty no dads about at the moment. No brains, apply the same logic to their own club? Derrrrr.... Errrr..... That'll be you shutting up now then no brains? No? Never mind you morons it's not a disaster to be thick and unemployable with our generous benefits system.

I would have liked Bryson to come here if I am honest, but we offered a more realistic three year deal - he wanted five so stayed at Derby. I can live with that, if his ambition is to earn as much money as he can, not try himself in the best league in the world then I wonder if he has the kind of attitude we need anyway.

By the way, Burnley have NEVER EVER made anything public about the players that we are interested in, the leaks have come mainly from either the player's agents or the local rags near to where the players are located.

You comment on Bryson using Burnley for a pay rise and that is fair enough, but as for Troy Deeney - Burnley quite rightly won't pay £10 million therefore aren't allowed to speak to him, so how do you know if he is or isn't interested in moving to Burnley? The same goes for Dawson who IS interested apparently and also Lansbury who also IS interested in joining, until WBA and Forest accept our bids then how do you know if the player is or isn't interested?

Simple, you don't, you are just being malicious, as have been most Blackburn fans this summer, trying desperately to poke holes in Burnley's fantastic season and opportunity in the top flight next year - you are all extremely jealous and would love to swap places with us.

Aww have I offended you, are you going to cry? ha ha ha get over yourself. Don't post your same repetitive **** on here then.

I wasn't actually trying to confuse you with the abbreviations sunshine, I am glad you know what they all mean.

Yep, not long until the Chelsea roadshow with their sixteen players from the World Cup, their internationally famous manager and their staff all arrive to play in front of over 21000 fans at famous old Turf Moor - really can't wait until a week on Monday now - the town is seriously buzzing with anticipation.

Whereas Blackburn are playing the mighty (lol) Cardiff with their non-famous players and you will be lucky to get 14000 supporters on and avoid a heavy defeat.

Good luck in the Championshit next season sweetie, it must be absolutely awful for you to watch Mighty Burnley playing in the top division when you are all praying to the Shadsworth God of Poverty to make your Premier League dreams come true - never going to happen for you, you simply are not good enough.

Yep, not long until the Chelsea roadshow with their sixteen players from the World Cup, their internationally famous manager and their staff all arrive to play in front of over 21000 fans at famous old Turf Moor - really can't wait until a week on Monday now - the town is seriously buzzing with anticipation.

I'm glad we didn't panic buy this lansbury lad, he's pretty small and average so only commands a very small average fee.
I think this "can you peel an orange in your pocket" approach to transfers needs sorting though, I mean some oranges are like grape fruits so dyche requires bigger pockets. Its been okay for him so far as the lemons he has bought fit in his "teet troousers " easily indeed.

As a consequence of this posting, I am currently residing in Ward 3 at Burnley General. The Dr says I am in an almighty stupor. If I don't make it, the Wake will be at the Lord Rodney in Colne. Donations to the Clarets fund for orphans please.
Have to say Rob that I am a bit bemused as well. I don't usually even read his stuff but this actually makes some sense. My conclusion is he is biding his time in some way, he's had a warning off the Telegraph (he's been reported enough) or he's on some medication at last. It could be, of course, that he has at last decided to make decent comments and turned over some kind of leaf or other. Time will tell, but at least I am reading his posts at the moment and this forum is all the better for his new behaviour.
To Tom: keep it up and we may even have a dialogue at some point.
You've been fooled Houseclaret. This is your very own 'Lookup blackburn' 'Super Claret' 'We love you Venkys' etc. etc.
Note the space between TurfMoor and Tom. The real one will be on soon enough I expect!!!
I appreciate the "warning" Harwood and, no, I haven't been fooled. As I stated I fully expect that this is some kind of game but, just in case there is some kind of change of heart, which I doubt, then I wait with baited breath. But there has been a general toning down of the rubbish on here and that has to be welcomed, I'm sure you'll agree? There will always be idiots on here and the Rovers forum and I can live with that, but as long as we can put an end to the endless copying of nonsense then then it will be better for all.
Some people on here have so many names it is impossible to know who is who, sometimes the writing style gives it away, so all we can do is encourage the good stuff.
How are things on the Rovers site anyway?
Pretty quiet Houseclaret, apart from the same serial troll who's on both sites today as he always is with his different accounts. Strangely he's a fan of neither club, just an internet troll.
On the player front I don't think we'll be buying anyone else this season, perhaps a loan or two as we're a bit short in defence. As someone said above we've spent too much money the last couple of seasons paying off Venkys / Kean's / Singhs mistakes.
I think Bowyer has got a good squad together though to give it a right good go this time. Hope so anyway but you never can tell.

Unlike your very toit pants that you walk around in Barry, or is that your leotard. As far as panicking goes you must be bricking it with the visit of the mighty Cardiff tonight. Don't worry a Cardiff following of a couple of thousand will swell the gate to about 12,000 for your second tier game in a second tier stadium.

Last season QPR came down in crisis, Derby were hit by injuries, I can't see those top 2 places been as up for grabs. I think all relegated teams will be in the top 6, Derby will maybe not Forest. But you're playing really for 1 of 2 slots placed 3-6. It's a stronger division if you compare it to last year. So it's going to be the big squads with quality throughiut that will get the prize - Rovers could fall short. The idea that you can make top 2 is just deluded.

Shallow post rubbing cannot cover the fact that this TMT is a fake, must try harder, I can tell my mate TMT's posts from a mile away, they are usually sensible, insightful, and bang on the money regarding content. This one above that has you two gushing over is just made up rubbish, Tom would never be associated with such wild and inaccurate garbage.
Lansbury is just a very average joe so I suppose in that respect, and Burnleys transfer policy, he will fit in nicely with the rest of the average joes we have collected so far.

I think Rob got his ISP but anyway he is one of yours but I don't think anyone really sees him as a normal no dad, more one of your fruit cakes - but you're right he acts so irrationally it's not always clear what he is -,other than jobless and with a bipolar disorder or mental health problem. On football I think Bowyer is underrated by your lot last season but generally. The depth is a problem for you lot now. Last season QPR came down in crisis, Derby were hit by injuries, I can't see those top 2 places been as up for grabs. I think all relegated teams will be in the top 6, Derby will maybe not Forest. But you're playing really for 1 of 2 slots placed 3-6. It's a stronger division if you compare it to last year. So it's going to be the big squads with quality throughiut that will get the prize - Rovers could fall short. The idea that you can make top 2 is just deluded.
Yes, top two is probably too much for us this season but a play off place is possible. Bowyer himself has said itt'll take another couple of transfer windows to get rid of the rubbish he inherited and ' his' squad in place. Only then can we expect to be pushing for the top two IMO. This predominantly 'young' squad though should not be underestimated as they mature and learn to play together. There was lots of promise on show the last 12 games last season as all Bowyers signings began to gel.

Listen mate, as much as I dislike Rovers I don't like what's gone on there over the last 2 years or so. Simply, it could happen to any club and it emphasises again the problems now being caused by money in football. I remember posting 2 years or more ago on the Rovers site (a rarity indeed) supporting your plight and I haven't changed my mind since. If what has happened at Rovers went unchecked then football would have a bleak future.
I'm sure you will get through it but I think there are more lows than highs in store in the short term. Burnley have been through very tough times over the last few years and it has been hard to bear but hopefully we are over the worst and we can at least look forward to being a "yo-yo" club, with any luck. I don't want Rovers to go into meltdown because I want my old enemy around, who would I hate otherwise?

Yes but if we go on our last 12 games and you go on yours it ignores ho below par you were before and that we're playing totally different opponents. So the past isn't that reliable a guide. A few loans possiblly this is where Bowyer is respected, if he can play the loan market maybe a play off. A good start, fair wind and some crucial depth that's quality and maybe. But it's maybe and expectations seem ridiculously high again.

As a Rovers Fan, you have to applaud what Dyche is trying to do and it is about time some clubs stood up to the Premier League and Sky. If Burnley stay up then it will have been worth it, if not they will be in a much better position than others who have come down in massive debt such as Blackpool, Leeds and Portsmouth.
I think that unfortunately money will win and Burnley, despite their best efforts will probably go down. If you look at the other premier league clubs and the obscene money they are spending (is Kompany really worth £65 million?) It is a very difficult position for a Rovers fan due to the rivalry to want Burnley to succeed yet want them to lose as much as Burnley fans want Rovers to lose.
Sadly stupid trolls on both sides are ruining any healthy banter, at least for now I can say Rovers are top of the league!

Rovers managed a credible draw against the title favourites. I wonder if we could manage the same against runners up favourites Chelsea. That'd be like winning the lottery. I suspect this will be the first of many drubbings. Then it will be drubbing after drubbing after drubbing. But we are in the Pl so it doesn't matter.

I don't think you'll get drubbed at all pal. A dingle posting on a Rovers article yesterday said that your team will work really hard. Add the hard work to that new players tunnel and I think you've got the perfect blend of a hardworking tunnel.
