New director Nelson kicks off board role by cheering Clarets to win over Blackpool

Lancashire Telegraph: Brian Nelson Brian Nelson

NEW director Brian Nelson kicked off his new role at the club by watching Burnley return to the Championship summit.

The 65-year-old Nelson-born businessman was appointed on to the board last week and celebrated with the Clarets’ 2-1 win over Blackpool.

Speaking before the game, Nelson said: “I’d like to have a 100 per cent record as director and take three points.”

His wish was granted thanks to goals from Danny Ings and Scott Arfield.

And Nelson praised the work of manager Sean Dyche and his players, who go into the Boxing Day game at Middlesbrough top of the table.

The director said: “He’s proved to be an excellent manager. We look like a team, we play like a team.”

Nelson said the specifics of his role as director had yet to be ironed out, but he said he was proud to have a greater involvement of a club he has been a lifelong supporter of.

“It’s a dream come true to be a director,” he continued.

“I was never able to play for them, so I suppose the next best thing is to be a director.

“My wife and I are in a position to buy some shares and to help the club we’ve supported all our lives.”

Yet another Burnley supporter on the board willing to invest in the club.

Good times ahead for such a well-run club that has paid its due's and risen to the top of the Championship the right way.

A far cry from the shambles down the road. Makes you proud to be a Claret.

Compare and contrast -

Brian Nelson local man from working class background, went to Colne Grammar, worked hard all his life and eventually ran his own business. He's been a clarets fan all his life and now a director of the club.
Fake villa , whoever that is , achieved nothing and height of achievement becoming the most idiotic troll on any and every story relating to Burnley. He / she/it criticises Brian Nelson!!!!!

Vincent Tan looks to be following the Venky's model.
First sack an experienced and replace with a novice. Get the club relegated.
Bring in and then replace more managers. Appoint a new person to run the club (in the Cardiff case a 23 year old to do recruitment) who knows nothing about the role (since removed). Run the club into uncontrollable debt.
These owners are so autocratic they are unable to admit mistakes. In their world they cannot and refuse to lose face and as such will take these clubs to the brink of disaster.

I agree with you, but unfortunately this particular hill-billy was let go from it's previous place of employment. It appears that mopping the floors of the Audley Range knocking Shop was a step to ambitious and the cretin has returned to a life of benefit scrounging and bin-dipping.

It doesn't matter what advice you give this rodent, it is simply unable to take it's medicine and crawls back on here day in, day out with yet more inane ramblings regarding the demise of Burnley football club and our shocking slide down the league table. It then gets put in its place and slinks away mid afternoon with its tail between its legs for a quiet cry. It will however be back later recharged and ready to be slapped down once again.

I feel only pity towards this obviously retarded imbecile and suggest the best approach is to leave it to fester in its own filth and shame. It is in every way a perfect match for Blackburn Rovers.
