Arfield: Clarets belong in Premier League

Chelsea defeat won’t hit our belief that we can stay up

SCOTT Arfield says Burnley will bounce back from their opening day defeat to title favourites Chelsea, and prove their Premier League worth.

The Clarets, widely tipped for relegation straight after clinching automatic promotion, were handed the toughest of challenges to mark their return to the top flight.

And, despite Arfield threatening an early upset by firing the home side in front with a superb volley in the 14th minute, Chelsea responded with three goals in 17 minutes to condemn the Clarets to a 3-1 loss.

But Arfield insists the outcome will not define their season, and is confident the Clarets can recover.

He said: “We believe we should be here. We’re here on merit. We deserve to be here, we’re not here to make up the numbers.

“People can say what they want but in that dressing room we believe in what we’ve got.

“We definitely believe how good we can play. It’s up to us to keep believing.

“We’re on to the next game now. With the fans behind us anything can happen.”

It is Swansea next for the Clarets with the Welsh side fresh from their weekend win at Old Trafford.

But Arfield is looking for Burnley to utilise their early learning curve, and on a personal note reap the benefits of a goalscoring start to the campaign.

“First game and first goal in this division, I’ve waited a long time personally,” said the Scot, who scored nine in Burnley’s promotion season.

“It was a good night. I’ve waited a long time to play in the top division and I enjoyed it.

“On a personal level that was different class and my family were down here from Scotland to see it too.

“They’ve stuck by me and they’ve waited a long time for that too, so it was a really special moment.”

On coming up against a Chelsea side tipped by many for the title Arfield added: “They are terrific players. They’re favourites for this division for a reason.

“We knew how tough a game it was going to be.

“The players they possess are terrific footballers, the brain moves a bit faster and they make the ball do the work, make the pitch big.

“It was there to see why they're favourites for this division, the way they moved the ball, the rotation in the middle of the park was brilliant at times.

“But it was up to us to keep our shape, and there are positives to take out of that performance. I think we did well.

“It was a decent performance for us.

“We can play a bit better but the way we shifted the ball at times in the second half put them under pressure and pressed them in high positions I think we got behind them, and the fans getting behind us helped as well.”

Scunthorpe and then Norwich??

Just embarrassing beyond belief for you isn't it? Spending all day on Burnley articles laughing at us getting beat by the probable PL Champions, and then you go and get hammered off a Norwich side that got dicked by everyone last season in the PL and sold all their best players in the summer.

Norwich had twice as many shots against Blackburn as Chelsea did against Burnley - think about that one.

Still think you are 'Passing us in the way up'? Or is it Bowyer Out time yet?

Yet he played so well against Chelsea, scored a steamer and only denied a second through a brilliant save by the Chelsea keeper. Odd how you leave out the physical, in front of your eyes evidence and the accumulated evidence of the whole of last season. I say odd, because its so unlike you......

Burnley FC are back in their rightful home, the top division of English football. A founder member of the football league, twice champions of England, European Cup quarter finalists, a club that others model themselves on, well run, well respected, well supported, a superb manager, financially secure and in the safe hands of a board of directors all of whom are successful local businessmen and lifelong supporters of the club.

Blackburn Rovers. Second division. Knocked out of the cup by Scunthorpe, in financial meltdown with debts exceeding £60m, weak squad, poor manager, lousy support, owned by an Indian Poultry company, and about to be handed a transfer embargo for cheating the rules that all clubs must comply with. No class, no talent, no hope.

Was very impressed with Arfield on Monday, hope he plays like that all season. Him and Trips on the right looks solid enough.
Mee is the big concern for me and I question Kightly at this level, think our left side needs strengthening as well as another centre half and centre mid.

Of course we belong in the league. Seems like LET is still struggling to cope with the seismic change in football around these parts. Oh actually - no we don't. The massive gap between us and Rovers was an illusion created by the toxic fog seeping out of TMTs bedsit. The obvious fact that we spent less time outside the top 2 than TMT has spent in paid employment this decade seems to be seen as a fluke. I can't see what problem the LET has - last night Rovers were stuffed by a team with a striker leading the line who wouldn't get in our reserves. Monday we faced 11 men , 8 of them had place in the world cup,with a combined value of 180 million. Yet we're in a relegation scrap and Rovers have just er.. lost an unbeaten record of one game. Of course Arfield calls it right, he was on the pitch instead of throwing poison darts from the press box. So why ignore the obvious? Burnley are - like it or not - top dogs. The world has changed. After FFP it will change again. A bit more support and a bit less ship stirring from the LET might help

But you're not really in the top division yet are you as you've yet to post any points. While you're bottom or even in the relegation spots, are you actually in the division? Just look on your season as probation. A term you probably understand and having also failed will be aware of the consequences.

Nope.

Norwich, yeah they were strongest on the night but no great shakes as it could have been different. The only difference for you was that if Chelsea kept playing it would have been a cricket score.

Another comedy gem from footballs most jealous fan. TurfMoorTom now refused to acknowledge that Burnley even got promoted such is the level of anger and hatred he is consumed by. He would rather live in a world where Burnley are not a member of the elite 20 clubs in the country and on the receiving end of £150m while his own club are heading for a royal shafting at the hands of FFP and slide further into obscurity.

So Tom, if we're not in the Premier League, which league are we in? The Championship? We can't be, we got promoted form the Championship last season remember after amassing an incredible 93 points, beating you clowns along the way, and then preventing you from reaching the play-off's.

Burnley FC are a Premier League club, and as much as that fact makes you cry, its true.

Of course Bowyer wants to stay - he is in the Steve Kean mode of being unable to believe his luck at landing a managerial job in the Championship with ZERO experience.
Chelsea could have got a cricket score could they? Well Norwich scored three, hit the post and bar and had 17 shots against your Championship defence - they could also have had a cricket score and they are, well, crappy Norwich, not Chelsea.
So it could have been different last night could it? Wow, what amazing insight, so if you had score a few more goals and conceded less you might have won the game?? Astonishing.

Second Division Rubbish.

Regarding Bowyer, as he's Rovers through and through I want him to stay. Shorn Douche is obviously also long term, what living just down the road. In Northamptonshire.[/p][/quote]Of course Bowyer wants to stay - he is in the Steve Kean mode of being unable to believe his luck at landing a managerial job in the Championship with ZERO experience. Chelsea could have got a cricket score could they? Well Norwich scored three, hit the post and bar and had 17 shots against your Championship defence - they could also have had a cricket score and they are, well, crappy Norwich, not Chelsea. So it could have been different last night could it? Wow, what amazing insight, so if you had score a few more goals and conceded less you might have won the game?? Astonishing. Second Division Rubbish. Chuck Norris' Roundhouse

Was very impressed with Arfield on Monday, hope he plays like that all season. Him and Trips on the right looks solid enough.
Mee is the big concern for me and I question Kightly at this level, think our left side needs strengthening as well as another centre half and centre mid.

Don't know what game you lot were watching but we got well and truly drubbed on Monday. Chelsea treated us like a cat with a dead mouswe in the second half, went for a knap in front of the fire whilst we ran round like headless chickens, all thud and blunder. If Chelsea had taken us to task it could have been a massacre.
Next up Swansea fresh from dumping Man U, should be another close game with it ending in defeat and a lot of positives taken. We need to take points not positives

Another comedy gem from footballs most jealous fan. TurfMoorTom now refused to acknowledge that Burnley even got promoted such is the level of anger and hatred he is consumed by. He would rather live in a world where Burnley are not a member of the elite 20 clubs in the country and on the receiving end of £150m while his own club are heading for a royal shafting at the hands of FFP and slide further into obscurity.

So Tom, if we're not in the Premier League, which league are we in? The Championship? We can't be, we got promoted form the Championship last season remember after amassing an incredible 93 points, beating you clowns along the way, and then preventing you from reaching the play-off's.

Burnley FC are a Premier League club, and as much as that fact makes you cry, its true.
I'd say you're in no-mans land. Not accepted or competitive as a Premier League side or club and it's yet to be proven how far or fast you'll fall. You'll be well at home as you are most certainly no man.

We can see Arfield is exactly what we need. I mean - when was the last time he had a bad game? Too early to tell on the side in general but it's really good progress all round. And I think after the hysterical over-reaction to Monday in Blackburn, followed by their pounding in Norfolk, we night do well to play a long game. Compare the applause as the players left the pitch at Turf Moor to the boos and vile abuse directed at Bowyer every time they lose a game. Compare our support to these classless surrender monkeys and you see why we need to just to enjoy the season, trust Dyche and support our boys.

Blackburn Rovers. Second division.

No class, no talent, no hope.
But you're not really in the top division yet are you as you've yet to post any points. While you're bottom or even in the relegation spots, are you actually in the division? Just look on your season as probation. A term you probably understand and having also failed will be aware of the consequences.
So by your logic ToolBagTed as well as Burnley not being a Premier League team because we have no points, then neither are Man United, Southampton, West Ham, Stoke etc We keep saying you are a tool and you keep proving it.
What a sad desperate life you must lead if that is the laughable level you are now having to stoop to.

Also... All some of you guys do is talk about Blackburn... Do you not find that strange? You do realise you had a game too right.. You could always talk about how well you did, whether you can improve, your thoughts and ideas on BURNLEY.. You know, your team?
You're in the premiership now, fair play, you had a great season, why are you still talking about Blackburn? There is no chance of us playing each other this season? I'm all for banter, but wow some of you are obsessed (not all), but some are beyond explanation and reasoning...
