Burnley boss won't waste cash

SEAN Dyche is not anticipating having money to spend in the remainder of the transfer market, despite boosting hopes of a play-off push with a third straight league win.

Burnley climbed to within a place and four points of the top six after beating Millwall 2-0 at the Den on Saturday.

Boss Dyche now has just nine days left to add to his ranks and help sustain that charge, before the loan window re-opens a week later, but is not expecting much movement.

“We’re still obviously actively looking, but it will be right place at the right time for us, because we haven’t got the money to just throw around and sign whoever we like,” said Dyche, who has been linked with Reading forward Simon Church.

The Clarets are just a point behind where they were at the same stage of their promotion season of 2008/09 after an encouraging start to 2013.

Four seasons ago, Rhys Williams was brought in on loan from Middlesbrough at the end of the January transfer window.

However, the Burnley manager believes the need to make signings has been negated by the level of competition which has made for a strong squad.

Despite missing top scorer Charlie Austin for the best part of five games, after he limped out of the Leicester game in only the eighth minute, Burnley have still managed to win their last three league games – scoring five without conceding.

“It’s good at the moment, the feelgood factor is certainly there, and the players are playing some really good stuff,” said Dyche, who has also been forced into defensive changes with Ben Mee sidelined with knee ligament damage for seven weeks and Michael Duff missing Saturday’s game with a hamstring problem.

“The key thing from my point of view is that we’ve had some misfortune lately with suspensions and injuries, and we’re trying to get to a point where everyone knows their role.

“We shuffled the pack again – Duffo got hurt last thing before we finished training on Friday, and David Edgar slottted in, and it didn't look like there was any difference.

“That’s a really key thing for us with our squad, they know the role and responsibility but still have the freedom to play.

“We’ve won four out of five in the league, at the moment, so in terms of bringing players in, who do you change?

“It’s not as simple as bringing somebody in, especially when we’ve got slightly limited resources – it can only be a certain level of player. But I think you’ve seen signs of a team willing to take on the challenge.

“It doesn’t mean it gets there, but they’re a willing group to take on the challenge of winning as many games as possible, and who knows where that can take you?

“The challenge is to break into that top six.”

And Dyche admits the signs are encouraging, and was particularly impressed with the manner in which they derailed Millwall’s play-off push to enhance their own chances on Saturday.

“Every manager and every coach is searching for that solid framework to work from, and that organisation that the players know, but then to allow the players the chance to play and allow them the freedom,” he said.

“We’ve spoken to them about that and they have got that freedom to play, and it’s just an idea of in transition when the ball’s not yours return to shape and you do the basics well.

“That bodes well for any kind of performance and to get points on the board.”

Because Kilby decided to take back the 3.2 million we owed him for the grounds out of the 3.16 million we were in the black.And decided that the transfer window was an ideal time to do this.What about that'initial'40 million pumped in by the Russian billionaire ?

Really? The last I heard was that John Sullivan was going over to Russia to try and tempt some Obliarch to invest - where did this 'initial £40 million' come from then?

What is the Russian's name - or is he just called 'The Russian'?

You're right bud. Since Kilby took over and Teasdale to an extent, this club has always been run within its means. The board invest as much as they can but some fans think that they should just pump money in constantly.
Some of them are wealthy chaps but they're not in a position where they can afford to miss a couple of million quid.
I hope that we're not serious about foreign owners. Look at that laughing stock down the road/ Pompey/hearts etc

Not in a position to miss a couple of million ? Van der Schaff paid over a million pound in wages for 1 appearance for the club,Leon Cort,1.5 million plus wages,and many more.All of a sudden though we cant afford to miss a couple of million all of a sudden ? Remember what Kilby said' It's not a massive amount to pay back,around 3.2 million!!!! So what's 2 million if that's not a massive amount ? Oh,and at the time he said we didn't need to win promotion to the prem to afford it either.

Just for the interest of any soap-dodging Grintwum chicken-gobbler that strays on here and assumes his club has manymanymanymanymany more 'supporters' than Burnley because of the numbers commenting on threads, you're wrong.

I have a Leeds-supporting friend who assumed his club were bigger than most others because they were always on the back page of the red tops he read. Until it was pointed out to him that was because he lives in Leeds and the red-top he was reading was a locally-printed one so bound to be Leeds biased. If he was to go further south and buy the same paper, the Leeds stories would be relegated to the inside pages and the Sheffield clubs would feature more and it would change depending upon the region you bought the paper.

It's the same with this paper. It is glaringly obvious there is a Blackburn bias and as such, it may as well change its name to the Blackburn Telegraph. Since most Burnley fans have got better places to post their views and opinions, they do so. But don't assume the numbers associated with each thread indicate an imbalance in actual supporters. Burnley, pro rata, are better supported than t'Ruhrvurs

If he was to go further south and buy the same paper, the Leeds stories would be relegated to the inside pages and the Sheffield clubs would feature more and it would change depending upon the region you bought the paper.

It's the same with this paper. It is glaringly obvious there is a Blackburn bias and as such, it may as well change its name to the Blackburn Telegraph. Since most Burnley fans have got better places to post their views and opinions, they do so. But don't assume the numbers associated with each thread indicate an imbalance in actual supporters. Burnley, pro rata, are better supported than t'Ruhrvurs
My word you don't half have several chips on your shoulders don't you?

You should try aiming for one of your mouths at feeding time.

None whatsoever. Wait a minute, I haven't been conned into opening the door to the Jehovah's Witness of stupidity, have i? If so, I'll have to give my own tenner to myself. If not, another village is looking for you. Get back quick or they'll have to advertise they've got a vacancy for an idiot.

You have hit the nail on the head with that comment,it's all a farce.Quite clearly you dont follow the club very well if you haven't heard about the Russian!!!
i follow the club, you obviously follow the Burnley Express. Come on, tell us all about this Russian as you must be "in the know"!!
.
We sold our ground when we had no money and were in danger of going into administration. We pay over £300k per year rent, why not buy it back?
You're right bud. Since Kilby took over and Teasdale to an extent, this club has always been run within its means. The board invest as much as they can but some fans think that they should just pump money in constantly.
Some of them are wealthy chaps but they're not in a position where they can afford to miss a couple of million quid.
I hope that we're not serious about foreign owners. Look at that laughing stock down the road/ Pompey/hearts etc
Not in a position to miss a couple of million ? Van der Schaff paid over a million pound in wages for 1 appearance for the club,Leon Cort,1.5 million plus wages,and many more.All of a sudden though we cant afford to miss a couple of million all of a sudden ? Remember what Kilby said' It's not a massive amount to pay back,around 3.2 million!!!! So what's 2 million if that's not a massive amount ? Oh,and at the time he said we didn't need to win promotion to the prem to afford it either.
I was talking about personal wealth. Could you put £2m of your own money in and not expect it back?
They don't have to put their money in, do they? It wouldn't be much of a club without it, would it?
Yaawnnnn,like banging head against a brick wall.Ambition!!!!!!!

Until it was pointed out to him that was because he lives in Leeds and the red-top he was reading was a locally-printed one so bound to be Leeds biased. If he was to go further south and buy the same paper, the Leeds stories would be relegated to the inside pages and the Sheffield clubs would feature more and it would change depending upon the region you bought the paper.

It's the same with this paper. It is glaringly obvious there is a Blackburn bias and as such, it may as well change its name to the Blackburn Telegraph. Since most Burnley fans have got better places to post their views and opinions, they do so. But don't assume the numbers associated with each thread indicate an imbalance in actual supporters. Burnley, pro rata, are better supported than t'Ruhrvurs
My word you don't half have several chips on your shoulders don't you?

You should try aiming for one of your mouths at feeding time.
