FULL-TIME: Burnley 2, Blackpool 1

SCOTT Arfield fired Burnley back to the top of the table in time for Christmas by securing a Lancashire derby win over Blackpool.

With QPR surrendering their unbeaten home record and first place in the Championship with defeat at home to Leicester earlier in the day, it left the door open for Clarets to go back to the summit a week after slipping to second.

And goals early in both the first and second half made for an even happier Christmas for the Clarets.

Top scorer Danny Ings struck his 17th for the club this season in the seventh minute through a training ground corner routine.

David Jones' low delivery was dummied by Michael Duff inside the box and struck low by Danny Ings through a sea of bodies from around 12 yards out, leaving Matt Gilks well beaten.

There were chances to Burnley to increase their lead in a bright start, but Craig Cathcart bundled over from a Thomas Ince corner to equalise.

Both keepers had to make saves before the break, with Tom Heaton superbly clawing out to stop a certain Dan Gosling goal.

Gilks went on to save well from Ings' stooping header.

But the stopper was rooted when Arfield fashioned a goal from nothing, curling right footed over the keeper for his fifth of the season, and arguably his best.

The Scot hit the angle with a cross shot from similar territory soon after.

Dan Gosling went close at the end of a solo run, but Burnley were otherwise in control.

Ings was denied at the death after Dean Marney burst clear and laid the ball off for the unmarked striker.

But referee Roger East blew within seconds to confirm a Clarets win.

Will you please learn to communicate effectively in the mother tongue you've been 'speaking' all your long and 'productive' life?

'Where' catching you up! WTF does that mean? And WTFs the jury got to do with the price of herring?

And finally, it's THE way, not 'there', their or they're.

You really are dim.

That's not good enough. You wouldn't get behind the wheel of a car unless you knew the rudiments of driving so why on earth do you think you can be first on here demeaning Burnley's result, p1ss down people's necks so you can tell them it's raining and do so in the most illiterate grammar possible? I'm not joking when I tell you it makes you look dim. It really does.

It's Christmas time
There's no need to be afraid
It's Christmas time
We let in light and we banish shade
But in this town of Blackburn
We can spread a smile of joy
Put your arms around the world at Christmas time

But say a prayer
Pray for the other ones
At Christmas time
Its hard but when you're having fun
There's a town out there called Burnley
And it's a world of dread and fear
They haven't even won a derby
In a whole 35 years

The six fingered bunch who live there
All wear claret and blue
But tonight thanks god it's them instead of you

And it won't be fun in Burn-l-ey this Christmas time
The greatest gift they'll get this year is fags
They'll be smashing up their town
Fighting over a pound

Do they know they've got a league two ground

Here's to them
Giro-cheques for everyone
Here's to them
The inter-breeding scum

Do they know they got a league two ground

Feed the Dingles
Let them know it's Christmas time again

Feed the Dingles
Let them know it's Christmas time again...

Well if you don't make the playoffs from your current position then it will be one of the most spectacular league plummets in history. But then again we are talking about Burnley.

Don't be silly! We at least are realistic. We may or may not reach the playoffs but it won't be from lack of trying. If we do reach them there is a good chance we could meet Burnley in the final. And as previously stated we all know what that would mean.

Hmmmm, last three games,

Drawn away against QPR

Won at home to Millwall

Won away to Yeovil

But yes you are the best team in the division NOW, let's see at the end of the season when the injures and suspensions take place, when Ings has gone along with Dyche in January!!!
Ha ha I'll tell you what, if Ings and Rhodes both get sold in January's window I know which board and manager I would trust to buy a decent replacement.

The fact is if Rhodes goes you are basically ****. We lose and replace strikers on a regular basis and look at how we just get better and better.

Anyway well done on winning your six pointer against a side you will doubtless be slugging it out with at the end of the season when you lose Rhodes.

There's a huge difference between making a small typo and being illiterate though - unless you live in 'Darren' "obviously".
By the way, have you seen the table after today's (note correct use of apostrophe) results? Still a long way behind aren't you?

I actually think this result shows the dire state the dingles are in. Scraping a result at home to a poor Blackpool side with even worse support than the dingles ( and that takes some doing) really goes to show how much they are struggling. Meanwhile we win with ease and continue our march back to where we belong. This Xmas is going to be a disaster for the hairy backs and I for one had it top of my Santa list this year followed by a brain transplant for crispy and his web footed pal mugger

Which is the best team in a league? The one at the top, the one with the most points.. Burnley are top of the Championship this Christmas and are without any argument, any dispute, the best team in the league.
Today’s game was a good derby match. The referee was diabolical. Very bad, useless. I know we are supposed to thank them for their efforts but it’s very hard sometime when they haven’t got a clue.
Sean Dyche and team are superb.
Merry Christmas to all.

Without question as utterly thick as the other no dads on here that are under the impression they are "catching us up".

You've clearly finished off your extra supply of methadone that's supposed to last you over the Christmas period. How can a 2-1 win be scraping it yet a 1-0 victory is a win with ease? You continue your shoeless "March back to where you belong" you deluded cocky tosspiece.

May the Yule tide log slip from your fire and burn your mudhut down.

Absolutely priceless nonsense from blackburn's most retarded supporter.

We win a Lancashire derby, you beat the shittest side in the league and have a semi on in your shellsuit bottoms ha ha ha ha.

We are cruising along at the top and you are a lowly 11th and just the 13 points behind your bigger and better rivals.

I suggest you up your methodone dose and try and forget 2013, it hasn't been kind to you.

We also have 2014 to look forward to. Seeing the Dingles with egg on their faces. Seeing the Rovers overcoming the difficulties of the last three years. Getting back some semblance of normality. And mark my words it will come eventually. But hopefully most of all the removal of the Venky's from our midst.

Won away to Yeovil

It's Christmas time
There's no need to be afraid
It's Christmas time
We let in light and we banish shade
But in this town of Blackburn
We can spread a smile of joy
Put your arms around the world at Christmas time

But say a prayer
Pray for the other ones
At Christmas time
Its hard but when you're having fun
There's a town out there called Burnley
And it's a world of dread and fear
They haven't even won a derby
In a whole 35 years

The six fingered bunch who live there
All wear claret and blue
But tonight thanks god it's them instead of you

And it won't be fun in Burn-l-ey this Christmas time
The greatest gift they'll get this year is fags
They'll be smashing up their town
Fighting over a pound

Do they know they've got a league two ground

Here's to them
Giro-cheques for everyone
Here's to them
The inter-breeding scum

Do they know they got a league two ground

Feed the Dingles
Let them know it's Christmas time again

Feed the Dingles
Let them know it's Christmas time again...
It won't be fun in burnley this Christmas time???

Course it will - we are top of the league you cretin.

I guess the best present you'll be getting will be some pain killers for your stiff neck that you've got from looking up at our lofty position!!

And if we cannot beat you we'll take a point anyway,

With Danny Ings, Sam Vokes too,
Passing the ball and scoring goals too.

That's funny. It's almost 3 months since some of you morons were saying the time for Burnley to start showing off is if they make it to Christmas still in the play-off places.

October 1st Burnley went to the top of the Championship by beating Doncaster 2-0 away, while Blackburn Rovers surrendered at home to Nottingham Forest.

Christmas 2013 and look who's top of the league! And as expected the Blackburn fans once again want to move the goal posts. So far this season we have proved ourselves to be automatic promotion candidates, we have been through a rough patch, as every team does, and yet we are still top of the league. Magic.

Think you just shot yourself n the foot. First off, as I have said before, stats don't win games. Goals do. Secondly, you managed only 1(one) goal from an alleged 25 shots as opposed to our 2 from 17. At what point exactly do you win this argument?

It was obvious from the start that the jealous ones would be out in force, Rhodes won them another game. One is even now saying we shouldn't be allowed promotion as the PL should only allow "big" clubs in. Why on earth would anyone say such a thing when they support a small club not dissimilar to ours? As for over-achieving, what have Rovers been doing until 3 years ago?
Anyway, enough of them. We have proved yet again that we are not a one-man team. We have proved yet again that we can sustain a challenge. QPR and Leicester are not infallible as a lot in the media like to suggest. One of the main dangers now is the form side, Derby. Another win for them has brought them almost level with the big 3.
I wish all the Clarets out there a happy Christmas and a great new year, it's certainly looking that way at the moment!
