BURNLEY are going into the Premier League in a "good frame of mind", says manager Sean Dyche.

The Clarets have had their season delayed through their opener, at home to Chelsea, being picked by Sky Sports for their Monday Night Football fixture.

And Dyche insists the players will use the extra time wisely, and be ready to go.

"We've had a decent pre-season and we're happy with that," he said.

"Players came through fit and well.

"We go into the Premier League understanding the challenges and some of the powerful clubs and players that are out there, but we want to be relentless in our attitude and thinking towards games.

"We do take one game at a time, and we go into the season in a good frame of mind."

Burnley have virtually a clean bill of health for the Chelsea game, with only long-term casualty Sam Vokes on the injury list.

But Dyche says the striker is progressing well.

"He is still a while away yet bit he has been out on the grass with the physios doing very light training," he said. "He is doing really well."

Neither have ANY of Blackburn's squad except for your two resident fatties - Robinson and Dunn.

Hmm Blackpool or Chelsea this weekend, what a dilemma.

Second Division rubbish.

You've obviously seen the interior of the Cricket Filed Stand since it was gutted and rebuilt, now have you Tatts? Pegs? Coat hangers and lockers and all sorts of fancy wood finish. And huge now too. I got lost on the tour.

You lads have got an absolute gem of a manager who is born to be a winner, unlike our resident Mr Bean who couldn't manage a good poo. Please can Burnley FC do the Rovers a massive favour and allow Gary Bowyer to shadow Sean Dyche for a day or two just to get an idea of what a real manager does, I'm afraid he simply hasn't got a clue and has only held his position so long due to the fans acceptance that he cant be any worse than the last lot. I'm not so sure of that myself. The man is a clown.

Oh dear TMT*T, you are such a N*B .

Every time you post a pile of S**T it really shows how envious and jealous you are of the Clarets .

Yes we eclipsed Rovers last season and yes we will eclipse Rovers again this season simply because we are In he Premiership and you just can't handle that.

Yes we will lose games but we will certainly win and draw games too. The Clarets destiny will not be decided by the Chelsea, Swansea or Man UTD games , there are 38 Premiership games to play before the Championship Title or Relegation places are settled.

Your also so envious and jealous of our manager too . Not only is SD a better manager than GB, SD also has a great personality. Something GB lacks along with his managing abilities .

What was the result against Scunthorpe???

You need help to get over your infatuation and love for BURNLEY FOOTBALL CLUB.

You're talking about Rovers again, your world seems to revolve around them. The article is about someone with no experience of the Premier League saying they're ready for the Premier League. After signing a couple of Championship reserves and being rejected by countless others.

A bit like when we went down with a caped chicken on the pitch you mean?

That night still haunts our dreams doesn't it.

I heard the Burnley fans had a party that night to celebrate our relegation, fireworks and everything. Its a shame we wont be able to do the same as sadly not only will they stay up but we are more likely to be in a relegation battle ourselves once FFP has pulled our pants down.

Sad times ahead my webfingered friend. Batten down the hatches, things are about to get a wee bit turbulent.

I doubt there will be many fireworks or parties in Blackburn when Bumley go down. It'd be like celebrating the milkman coming. Tick tock.

Quite right, by that time we'll have been ROYALLY SHAFTED by Mr FFP. I doubt any of us will be in a partying mood.

I just hope he uses plenty of lube.
