A selection of reaction to Burnley's win over Blackpool

A stunning strike from Burnley's Scott Arfield gave the Clarets all three points in the Lancashire derby as they won 2-1 at Turf Moor, inflicting a fourth straight defeat on Blackpool.

Arfield delivered a superlative curling effort into the far corner after Clarets top-scorer Danny Ings had continued his fine form by snatching his 17th goal of the season to put his side in front early on.

But Blackpool were never out of the reckoning and Craig Cathcart levelled the scores with a header before Arfield raised the roof by ensuring Burnley occupied the Championship's top spot at Christmas.

Mail on Sunday

SEAN DYCHE, the Burnley manager, is caught in the trap that has troubled so many before him as the January transfer deadline looms. In Danny Ings, the striker, Dyche has the provider of the goals that are proving so essential to Burnley’s hopes of returning to the Premier League at the end of this season.

Yet, as every goal raises the profile of the prolific forward even further, Dyche must also resign himself to the increasing likelihood that his greatest asset will be prised away from Turf Moor next month.

What if we are forced to sell Ingy in January?
We follow c. palaces example (zaha) and take the big money (surely £6M+) and insist he is loned back until the end of the season.
Big money would then be available (no excuses) to bolster the squad in the transfer window and cement our promotion push.

Bye bye Ings. Have fun at crystal palace and wave tarrah to you 6 fingered chums as they plummet down the league. You may as well say bye to the fans it won't take long - empty seats tend not to wave back

Years ago, Mr Rover, was living in his 2 up 2 down, next to Mr Claret. Then he won the lottery. He could afford to move to a smarter part of town and regularly visited the big city where he lived the high life. Rubbing shoulders with well established millionaires at the casino he frequented.

He got a taste for expensive food and drink and also developed an expensive cocaine habit. Not of this mattered as he was sure that the money he’d won would never run out.

He would often drive past in his large limousine and scoff at Mr Claret, shouting that he’d never have to live like his former neighbour had to.

Mr. Claret, meanwhile, just got on with his lot. Only spending what he could afford.

Time passed and the high rolling lifestyle of the now bloated, Mr. Rover had taken its toll on his bank account, his body and mind.

His addiction had spiralled out of control. He lashed out at former friends, Mr Big Sam, Mr. Hendry, and Mr Hodgson even the media were all blamed for his self-inflicted financial demise.

Bitterly he was forced to return to his former home a bitter, twisted and lonely man. He felt like failure. He was right. He couldn’t help but notice as he peeped at his neighbour, through the tatty net curtains, that while he thought the midas touch that he briefly had would never leave him, Mr Claret had been quietly doing very well for himself.

He now frequently he see’s Mr Claret having to sell his cars a HotJayRod and an Austin. Screaming “ha ha what are you going to do without it now!?” Only to be dismayed by the performance of the new Vokes-wagen Mr. Claret has.

He still trys to make himself feel better about the “old days, when I had loadsamoney”
But Mr Claret is not impressed. He didn’t dismiss his friends through the lean times and is very proud of what he’s achieved as many people compliment him on his success.

This only enrages the embittered, longing for the past Mr. Rover has he constantly shouts over the backyard wall that all Mr. Clarets achievements will come to an end. “it wont last. It wont last” “the only way is down for you” “what if you fall ill!?”

While the future for Mr Claret looks rosy, doing what he’s always done. The New Year looks bleak for the Mr Rover as he’ll be forced to sell what few assets he has left, in his empty shell.

His brief flirtation with the high life has ruined Mr Rover. He now cuts a hollow, bitter, curmudgeonly, figure. He desperately clings on, in vein, to the hope that his neighbour Mr Claret will see misfortune.

Christmas in Mr Rovers house will be cold, empty and empty. And when, not spent reminiscing of Christmas’s past, endlessly twitching at the moth eaten net curtain hoping, hoping, hoping that his neighbours self-made achievements will end.

Mr Claret will have a fantastic Christmas

The true answer is its pure speculation, 100m up for grabs v 10m. We don't need to sell, but if we do I am sure Lee Hoos and Sean Dyche have players in mind to replace Ings.
After all when Austin left the Doom mongers predicted relegation, mid-table at best. Its about the team, not just an individual.

We are Top of the league and even with, injuries and suspensions have only lost 2 out of 21 games. We're not hoping for results, we are getting them.
We are not in massive debt, we are not mid table wannabes, we are looking to strengthen with the right players. We will not panic buy, and only sell if it is in the best interest of the club.

Unlike other clubs where it is make or bust, we are under no pressure to sell.

We are a well run Football Club, not a advertising tool for a company looking for global awareness.

Just like the massive turn in fortunes when Austin left. One goes another steps up to the mark, bring it on.
And to top all that, we've proven that with the right organisation throughout the club, you don't need to borrow extensively.
Shame others didn't follow suit, but then again they deserve all they get, for thinking they know best, arrogant, ignorant and obsolete.
And that's how the Wovers will crumble!

You were what you were, you are what you are NOW, fail to prepare,prepare to fail, and all that.

Whoosh! Gone right over your head.

Has the bubble burst yet, like the no-dads have been predicting since October 1st? Has it all gone t!ts up for the Clarets yet, like the no-dads tried to tell us during our poor run a couple of weeks ago. Have we dropped down the table at an alarming rate, like that ignorant f@ckstick above continues to insist we will?

Nope.

Burnley are clear at the TOP OF THE LEAGUE at Christmas.

No-dads: Have a look at the teams in recent seasons who have been top at Christmas and where they have eventually finished. Then when you have stopped crying, have a look where your sorry shambles of a club currently resides, then get the tissues out again for another good sob.

£3-4 million from the Austin Sale not included, the repurchase of Turf Moor and the training ground included. Burnley expected to break even this year.

There's no pressure on us as we've always been a selling club, that's how we've survived at this level for so long, we are just very good at developing young players and finding those rough diamonds that we sell on for millions. In recent years Lafferty, Fletcher, Jay Rod, Austin. And still we end up with the best young striker in the country, an England U21 international, who will no doubt play at the top level. However he has a shot at getting there with Burnley this season. Makes you sick doesn't it?

What if we get promoted this year? Imagine how much money will come flooding into Burnley? And al the while the former "moneybags" Blackburn Rovers is on it's knees £56 million in debt losing £3 million every month.

I think you can keep the wolf from the door for another season or so and then its curtains for you. You have no chance of promotion as most of you have now accepted, and the gradual weakening of your squad to comply with FFP will speed up your demise. Administration, points deduction and another BRFC relegation party for the Clarets. You really are spoiling us, this is beyond our wildest dreams.

Burnley FC the BEST English team outside of the premier league.

That's £3 000 000 roled over to this years accounts.

We are Top of the league and even with, injuries and suspensions have only lost 2 out of 21 games. We're not hoping for results, we are getting them.
We are not in massive debt, we are not mid table wannabes, we are looking to strengthen with the right players. We will not panic buy, and only sell if it is in the best interest of the club.

Unlike other clubs where it is make or bust, we are under no pressure to sell.

We are a well run Football Club, not a advertising tool for a company looking for global awareness.

Big thanks to all who run Burnley Football Club, in a well organised, professional manner.

Merry Christmas and bring on the New Year!

£7,000,000 lost last season wasn't it?... The death knell for a small club like yours if that continues. If you don't go up this year it's curtains for Burnley. No pressure then?
The pressure being felt by the stupidly named one revealed in all its glory there. Forget you know less than nothing Mr. Stblue (sic) and bleat forth anyway. You might think that when you p1ss down the neck of someone you don't like and then tell them it's raining bothers them, dream on. What we see is someone making the silly mistake of writing down his wish list and believing it's real. It's not and although you may be more literate and logical (name apart - obviously) than some of your more ill-educated buffoons, you are some way short of making anything remotely like a valid point there.
