BURNLEY are making a third attempt to land Craig Dawson as they return with another bid for the West Brom defender.

Clarets boss Sean Dyche has identified Dawson as his top centre back target this summer but admitted after Tuesday’s friendly match at Preston that some deals were taking longer than he had hoped to secure.

Burnley have already had bids of around £1m and £1.5m rejected by West Brom for Dawson but Dyche is determined to get his man and the Clarets are now going back in with another offer, thought to be an initial £2m.

Dawson is known to be eager to join the Clarets in search of regular first-team football and is back in the country this week after returning from West Brom’s pre-season training camp in California.

The 24-year-old featured for 69 minutes in the Baggies’ 3-1 win over Sacramento Albion on Saturday.

Since Burnley saw their second bid rejected a fortnight ago, Dawson has been contemplating making an official transfer request in an attempt to secure a move to Turf Moor.

It is understood that he has not yet done so, but West Brom’s response to the Clarets’ latest bid could bring things to a head one way or the other.

Dawson has grown unhappy at the Hawthorns after making only 17 Premier League starts in three seasons.

Dyche wants to add numbers to his squad before the opening game of the campaign against Chelsea on August 18 and has stressed that Burnley are working hard to get deals done.

“We still feel as though we can add to our numbers, which we're looking to do,” he said.

“We’ve been linked with 64 players this week, we can’t sign them all!

“But there are a couple of things that are ongoing and a couple of fresh things that are just developing.

“It is a bit protracted with a couple of things, but sometimes that's the nature of how it is if you can't throw money everywhere.”

Asked how many players he would like to add before the summer transfer window shuts, he said: “There’s not really a number on it.

“Obviously the Premier League has a 25-man squad situation so we have to look at that.

“But that doesn’t mean we have to have 25, we have to look at the financial numbers as well.

“There’s not a definite number but we just know that we still need more reinforcements at the moment.

“It’s a double edged sword, if things happen now we want them to happen now make no mistake, but if they don’t it does allow you that time.

“Weird situations, good situations and not so good, all open up in that last couple of weeks beyond the beginning of the season.”

He is on his way.

He was at Preston on Tuesday by all accounts. Good signing, quick, strong and good in the air - Duff's replacement.

Be a good signing if you lot can pull it off. Fully agree with Dyche's philosophy of only buying British players. By and large you get what you pay for with a couple of obvious exceptions i.e. Andy Carroll. Players of this guys calibre will be valuable when the nitty gritty winter arrives. I think you have a very decent chance of survival this summer if you can do the right business, in my opinion if you could get this guy, and possibly one more centre half on loan, another centre midfielder then also keep Ings and Vokes (when he returns) fit there will be at least 3 teams worse than you. I think it's important you keep the 2 strikers fit as I'm not convinced by the new signings, not to say they won't score goals though as it depends what the manager does with them.

Great news if it's true. Perfect replacement for Duff, capped for England under 21's for 15 times still a young professional and will really benefit playing regular games along side Shacks, Tripp, Mee and Duff. Hope it comes in!!

Great comments.

I think once we have signed Dawson we won't be strengthening our defence as we have cover for all positions at the back now. We need a couple of central midfielders and a wide player with pace and I think we will be good to go.

I think we will surprise a lot of people this year, just like we did last season and 17th is a more than realistic option.

Yes you're more likely to get a known quantity, but you're most definitley going to pay an over inflated price for buying British. If you've got good scouting and management, you have to consider bringing some foreigners in, particularly when you're reluctant to spend. And regarding strikers, you really think they can play 2 up top in the Prem and survive? No chance. You seem quite positive for a neutral, particularly considering they just got beat by League 1 Preston.

Definitely be good if we could sign Dawson. On my shopping list too would be Henri Lansbury, Wes Hoolahan and Charlie Mulgrew.
If we added Keane, Lingard and Powell on loan from Man Utd too I think we would have a great squad and not break the bank. But I'm sure the ginger one has already earmarked the guys he wants

Yeah I agree, prices for British players are ridiculously inflated but they are definitely the safest bet if you can afford them. Not saying they're guaranteed to be better than foreigners but I think they're less likely to flop in this league. Yeah I think it's definitely possible to stay up playing 4-4-2. Palace, Hull and at times Stoke did it. As long as you can keep a relatively tight defence it puts less pressure on just the one newly promoted striker to carry the goalscoring burden. Lack of goals will always cost a team in a relegation scrap also, if you remember our strikers played a huge part in helping us win the few relegation scraps we had in our time there. I'm not a neutral mate I'm a Rovers fan, through and through! Just don't conform to the idea that Rovers and Burnley fans must all despise each other.

Valid points. Don't let the red mist affect your judgement.

Loads of teams played 1 up top in the Championship last season and we walked that - we will be fine playing 4-4-2, because unlike most other teams we defend from the front and our top two work extremely hard in closing down the opposition defenders - this is why we were so successful last season, and why that will carry on this year.

Buying British is a great advert for football and we are unique in that respect in the history of the Premier League.

You could say the same about Arfield, Heaton and Jones and look what they did last time out. SD can improve players. In fact he will probably end up with an England cap along with Trippier and Heaton.

4-4-2 for the worst squad in the Premier League by far?

You lot are so naive!

You might be buying British, but you're certainly not buying the best of British - Premier League has-beens (Taylor), Premier League has-been crocks (Reid), Championship hopefuls (Jutkiewitz) and Championship rejects (Sordell) are poor signings for the PL, no matter whether they're British or not.

I admire what Dyche did you for you lot last season and there's a part of me that would like to see him do well in the Premier League, with him being a young English manager. However, I have major suspicions that he will be another in a long line of Championship specialists who don't know what it takes to survive in the PL - eg Dave Basset, Neil Warnock, Billy Davies, Paul Jewell, Gary Megson etc.

Whereas George Burley at Ipswich with Marcus Stewart scoring goals finished top six. Appreciate he is Scottish but he is on a par with the names you mention when it cam to his experience of managing at that time.
Nearly all Blackburn fans are desperate for it to go wrong for Burnley, that is why it will be so funny when it doesn't.
For the sake of 500k for a number one target I would personally offer 2.5m as I reckon this is the price WBA are after. Get the deal done and get him in as soon as.

Great comments.

I think once we have signed Dawson we won't be strengthening our defence as we have cover for all positions at the back now. We need a couple of central midfielders and a wide player with pace and I think we will be good to go.

I think we will surprise a lot of people this year, just like we did last season and 17th is a more than realistic option.
Has no one wondered as if he's so good why no other cloub has shown any interest in him?
You could say the same about Arfield, Heaton and Jones and look what they did last time out. SD can improve players. In fact he will probably end up with an England cap along with Trippier and Heaton.
Yes Dyche did well last season but you can't expect him to keep making silk purses out of sow's ears. It's just not fair on the bloke and he can't reasonably be expected to keep it up indefinately.

Yeah I agree, prices for British players are ridiculously inflated but they are definitely the safest bet if you can afford them. Not saying they're guaranteed to be better than foreigners but I think they're less likely to flop in this league. Yeah I think it's definitely possible to stay up playing 4-4-2. Palace, Hull and at times Stoke did it. As long as you can keep a relatively tight defence it puts less pressure on just the one newly promoted striker to carry the goalscoring burden. Lack of goals will always cost a team in a relegation scrap also, if you remember our strikers played a huge part in helping us win the few relegation scraps we had in our time there. I'm not a neutral mate I'm a Rovers fan, through and through! Just don't conform to the idea that Rovers and Burnley fans must all despise each other.
Fair play. As a football fan and particularly how things had got with Sam's percentage football I hope they do it, though having experienced it I'd be very surprised, particularly after other clubs have had chance to suss them out. All the above said, as a fan of a town club and with the state of the modern game I can't bring myself to wish them well, the rivalry is all both clubs have left these days now money has wrecked everything.

Ha ha ha what embarrassingly ridiculous claptrap.

Poor Dyche, it is just not fair that he has achieved promotion to the Premier League - he must be gutted and disappointed that he is lining up against Chelsea instead of Rotherham next season.

Lambs to the slaughter rings a bell, Dyche will be ripping his hair out after 3 games. there’s never been such a colossal mismatch and will be the most embarrassing moment in Football history. Buying ‘Reeds’ and ‘Dawsons’ are championship standard at best. My cash is on 'no wins by xmas' for the Clarets.

I think we will surprise a lot of people this year, just like we did last season and 17th is a more than realistic option.
Has no one wondered as if he's so good why no other cloub has shown any interest in him?
You could say the same about Arfield, Heaton and Jones and look what they did last time out. SD can improve players. In fact he will probably end up with an England cap along with Trippier and Heaton.
Yes Dyche did well last season but you can't expect him to keep making silk purses out of sow's ears. It's just not fair on the bloke and he can't reasonably be expected to keep it up indefinately.
'It's not fair on the bloke'

Ha ha ha what embarrassingly ridiculous claptrap.

Poor Dyche, it is just not fair that he has achieved promotion to the Premier League - he must be gutted and disappointed that he is lining up against Chelsea instead of Rotherham next season.

You've let yourself down there harwood - like your team, MUST DO BETTER.
Lambs to the slaughter rings a bell, Dyche will be ripping his hair out after 3 games. there’s never been such a colossal mismatch and will be the most embarrassing moment in Football history. Buying ‘Reeds’ and ‘Dawsons’ are championship standard at best. My cash is on 'no wins by xmas' for the Clarets.
And im guessing Rovers bottom by November, touche !!

Still the same old "down by Christmas - lowest points total ever - embarrassment - lambs to the slaughter" rubbish that we heard last time we were promoted. What happened then? Yes we got relegated (as do most promoted teams) but:
A: We didn't get anywhere near the lowest points total.
B: We certainly weren't an embarrasment.
C: We held up very well against the top sides (ask United, City, Arsenal and Spurs - not to mention Everton).
D: We were relegated for the sake of only 5 points, most of which were lost to lesser clubs after Coyles untimely departure.
The difference now is that we have a better team, a bigger squad and an even better manager than Coyle. Are you really suggesting that we won't be able to match Stoke, Swansea, West Ham, Villa and the like?
The predictions of Rovers fans are not predictions at all, they are simply wish lists, nothing more.

Great comments.

I think once we have signed Dawson we won't be strengthening our defence as we have cover for all positions at the back now. We need a couple of central midfielders and a wide player with pace and I think we will be good to go.

I think we will surprise a lot of people this year, just like we did last season and 17th is a more than realistic option.
Has no one wondered as if he's so good why no other cloub has shown any interest in him?
You could say the same about Arfield, Heaton and Jones and look what they did last time out. SD can improve players. In fact he will probably end up with an England cap along with Trippier and Heaton.
Yes Dyche did well last season but you can't expect him to keep making silk purses out of sow's ears. It's just not fair on the bloke and he can't reasonably be expected to keep it up indefinately.
'It's not fair on the bloke'

Ha ha ha what embarrassingly ridiculous claptrap.

Poor Dyche, it is just not fair that he has achieved promotion to the Premier League - he must be gutted and disappointed that he is lining up against Chelsea instead of Rotherham next season.

You've let yourself down there harwood - like your team, MUST DO BETTER.
Lambs to the slaughter rings a bell, Dyche will be ripping his hair out after 3 games. there’s never been such a colossal mismatch and will be the most embarrassing moment in Football history. Buying ‘Reeds’ and ‘Dawsons’ are championship standard at best. My cash is on 'no wins by xmas' for the Clarets.
Still the same old "down by Christmas - lowest points total ever - embarrassment - lambs to the slaughter" rubbish that we heard last time we were promoted. What happened then? Yes we got relegated (as do most promoted teams) but:
A: We didn't get anywhere near the lowest points total.
B: We certainly weren't an embarrasment.
C: We held up very well against the top sides (ask United, City, Arsenal and Spurs - not to mention Everton).
D: We were relegated for the sake of only 5 points, most of which were lost to lesser clubs after Coyles untimely departure.
The difference now is that we have a better team, a bigger squad and an even better manager than Coyle. Are you really suggesting that we won't be able to match Stoke, Swansea, West Ham, Villa and the like?
The predictions of Rovers fans are not predictions at all, they are simply wish lists, nothing more.
Stoke have quality in Hughes and Crouch and top class board , a vision second to none, they are chasing current prem players, check them out, they don’t have ex asda staff like the clarets. West ham have the brilliant Big Sam , need I carry on.
You have just lost any modicum of credibility that you had right there when you mentioned that Crouch was class and that Big Sam was brilliant.

You showed yourself up for what you really are - a retarded, dribbling, jealous, crybaby goon.

Top sides didn't give you any respect, simply because you're Bumley and ou got by early in the season for that reason alone.

You were "relegated only for the sake of 5 points". 5 points is a pretty big gulf to be fair. And if you consider in a typical season you need to be aiming for 40 points, you achieved 75% of your target. Pretty poor. Infact, your statement is embarrassing.

You haven't learned anything from last time's failure.

You're on the crest of a wave sunshine, I'd take a deep breath.

So it was poor Coyles ultimate departure to blame was it ? your scrapping the barrel now - your fans slated him till he was a broken man. He took you up and you hounded him out, he was sick and tired of no cash and no fans to back him , an utter disgrace. Then he went to Bolton and pulverised you on the pitch,
A leper never changes its spots the directors are rubbing their hands all over again and poor Dychey boy will pay the price.

You were "relegated only for the sake of 5 points". 5 points is a pretty big gulf to be fair. And if you consider in a typical season you need to be aiming for 40 points, you achieved 75% of your target. Pretty poor. Infact, your statement is embarrassing.

He took you up and you hounded him out, he was sick and tired of no cash and no fans to back him , an utter disgrace. Then he went to Bolton and pulverised you on the pitch, A leper never changes its spots the directors are rubbing their hands all over again and poor Dychey boy will pay the price.

The power shift that has occurred in lancashire is obviously difficult for some no-dads to swallow.

Look lads, operation leapfrog was completed 2 years ago.

Move on and accept that the mighty clarets are east lancashires main event and your lot are the undercard. And you talk funny!!!

Great comments.

I think once we have signed Dawson we won't be strengthening our defence as we have cover for all positions at the back now. We need a couple of central midfielders and a wide player with pace and I think we will be good to go.

I think we will surprise a lot of people this year, just like we did last season and 17th is a more than realistic option.
Has no one wondered as if he's so good why no other cloub has shown any interest in him?
You could say the same about Arfield, Heaton and Jones and look what they did last time out. SD can improve players. In fact he will probably end up with an England cap along with Trippier and Heaton.
Yes Dyche did well last season but you can't expect him to keep making silk purses out of sow's ears. It's just not fair on the bloke and he can't reasonably be expected to keep it up indefinately.
'It's not fair on the bloke'

Ha ha ha what embarrassingly ridiculous claptrap.

Poor Dyche, it is just not fair that he has achieved promotion to the Premier League - he must be gutted and disappointed that he is lining up against Chelsea instead of Rotherham next season.

You've let yourself down there harwood - like your team, MUST DO BETTER.

2 years, that's a long time isn't it ? Made all the more palatable by the 35 years of total domination before that. Even your own fans on here only give you an outside chance of staying in the Prem this sesson !! Highly likely then we'll soon be renewing aquaintances again.

'It's not fair on the bloke'

Ha ha ha what embarrassingly ridiculous claptrap.

Poor Dyche, it is just not fair that he has achieved promotion to the Premier League - he must be gutted and disappointed that he is lining up against Chelsea instead of Rotherham next season.

You've let yourself down there harwood - like your team, MUST DO BETTER.
Lambs to the slaughter rings a bell, Dyche will be ripping his hair out after 3 games. there’s never been such a colossal mismatch and will be the most embarrassing moment in Football history. Buying ‘Reeds’ and ‘Dawsons’ are championship standard at best. My cash is on 'no wins by xmas' for the Clarets.
Still the same old "down by Christmas - lowest points total ever - embarrassment - lambs to the slaughter" rubbish that we heard last time we were promoted. What happened then? Yes we got relegated (as do most promoted teams) but:
A: We didn't get anywhere near the lowest points total.
B: We certainly weren't an embarrasment.
C: We held up very well against the top sides (ask United, City, Arsenal and Spurs - not to mention Everton).
D: We were relegated for the sake of only 5 points, most of which were lost to lesser clubs after Coyles untimely departure.
The difference now is that we have a better team, a bigger squad and an even better manager than Coyle. Are you really suggesting that we won't be able to match Stoke, Swansea, West Ham, Villa and the like?
The predictions of Rovers fans are not predictions at all, they are simply wish lists, nothing more.
B) and C) - i remember the commentary on radio lancs or 5live describing the mass exit after about 25minutes against manchester city at turf moor
And I remember Rovers taking 220 fans for a Premier League game at City.........!
your point is what - i was answering the issue about you or oneof your chums saying you weren't an embarrassment - your own fans left before half time at your own ground!!!!!

think you conceded over 80 goals which is on average - more than 2 per game.

yeah, we took 220 to city cos it was over £40 we were in the midst of all the kean nonsense and we were in for a right hammering cos kean was clueless - turns out we had one shot at goal all game in the 89th minute and, yes, we were an embarrassment - now your turn - a half empty ground at your place (including season ticket holders) - now go on, you can do it....that was an embarrassment......g
o on admit.

i remember the commentator on the radio aghast at all the burnley fans rushing to the vomitories (never has a word been more appropriate)

Great comments.

I think once we have signed Dawson we won't be strengthening our defence as we have cover for all positions at the back now. We need a couple of central midfielders and a wide player with pace and I think we will be good to go.

'It's not fair on the bloke'

Ha ha ha what embarrassingly ridiculous claptrap.

Poor Dyche, it is just not fair that he has achieved promotion to the Premier League - he must be gutted and disappointed that he is lining up against Chelsea instead of Rotherham next season.

You've let yourself down there harwood - like your team, MUST DO BETTER.
Lambs to the slaughter rings a bell, Dyche will be ripping his hair out after 3 games. there’s never been such a colossal mismatch and will be the most embarrassing moment in Football history.

Stoke have quality in Hughes and Crouch and top class board , a vision second to none, they are chasing current prem players, check them out, they don’t have ex asda staff like the clarets. West ham have the brilliant Big Sam , need I carry on.
Is this the same Big Sam that narrowly escaped with his job last season?

2 years, that's a long time isn't it ? Made all the more palatable by the 35 years of total domination before that.

Hmm lets revisit this '35 years of total domination' shall we. Can you tell me how many times we played in this time please, if memory serves between 1978 and 2000 we played twice, in 1983?

Also how many years is it since you beat Burnley?

What has happened is that we 'Totally dominated' you for the 35 years prior to 1978 - you were scratching around in Division Three whilst we were winning titles and playing in the top league etc etc.

It appears to go around in cycles - We had our 30 odd years of domination, you had yours and now we are two years into our next 30 years of domination - I guess you lot better up your banter levels if you are to survive the next 30 odd years without slitting your wrists.

Has no one wondered as if he's so good why no other cloub has shown any interest in him?
You could say the same about Arfield, Heaton and Jones and look what they did last time out. SD can improve players. In fact he will probably end up with an England cap along with Trippier and Heaton.
Yes Dyche did well last season but you can't expect him to keep making silk purses out of sow's ears. It's just not fair on the bloke and he can't reasonably be expected to keep it up indefinately.
'It's not fair on the bloke'

Ha ha ha what embarrassingly ridiculous claptrap.

Poor Dyche, it is just not fair that he has achieved promotion to the Premier League - he must be gutted and disappointed that he is lining up against Chelsea instead of Rotherham next season.

You've let yourself down there harwood - like your team, MUST DO BETTER.
Lambs to the slaughter rings a bell, Dyche will be ripping his hair out after 3 games. there’s never been such a colossal mismatch and will be the most embarrassing moment in Football history. Buying ‘Reeds’ and ‘Dawsons’ are championship standard at best. My cash is on 'no wins by xmas' for the Clarets.
Still the same old "down by Christmas - lowest points total ever - embarrassment - lambs to the slaughter" rubbish that we heard last time we were promoted. What happened then? Yes we got relegated (as do most promoted teams) but:
A: We didn't get anywhere near the lowest points total.
B: We certainly weren't an embarrasment.
C: We held up very well against the top sides (ask United, City, Arsenal and Spurs - not to mention Everton).
D: We were relegated for the sake of only 5 points, most of which were lost to lesser clubs after Coyles untimely departure.
The difference now is that we have a better team, a bigger squad and an even better manager than Coyle. Are you really suggesting that we won't be able to match Stoke, Swansea, West Ham, Villa and the like?
The predictions of Rovers fans are not predictions at all, they are simply wish lists, nothing more.
Top sides didn't give you any respect, simply because you're Bumley and ou got by early in the season for that reason alone.

You were "relegated only for the sake of 5 points". 5 points is a pretty big gulf to be fair. And if you consider in a typical season you need to be aiming for 40 points, you achieved 75% of your target. Pretty poor. Infact, your statement is embarrassing.

You haven't learned anything from last time's failure.

You're on the crest of a wave sunshine, I'd take a deep breath.
So it was poor Coyles ultimate departure to blame was it ? your scrapping the barrel now - your fans slated him till he was a broken man. He took you up and you hounded him out, he was sick and tired of no cash and no fans to back him , an utter disgrace. Then he went to Bolton and pulverised you on the pitch,
A leper never changes its spots the directors are rubbing their hands all over again and poor Dychey boy will pay the price.
What a ridiculous post! No Burnley fan I know hounded him out. We were devastated by his going. Unlike you lot with Kean. Don't tar us with your brush.

The predictions of Rovers fans are not predictions at all, they are simply wish lists, nothing more.
B) and C) - i remember the commentary on radio lancs or 5live describing the mass exit after about 25minutes against manchester city at turf moor
And I remember Rovers taking 220 fans for a Premier League game at City.........!
your point is what - i was answering the issue about you or oneof your chums saying you weren't an embarrassment - your own fans left before half time at your own ground!!!!!

think you conceded over 80 goals which is on average - more than 2 per game.

yeah, we took 220 to city cos it was over £40 we were in the midst of all the kean nonsense and we were in for a right hammering cos kean was clueless - turns out we had one shot at goal all game in the 89th minute and, yes, we were an embarrassment - now your turn - a half empty ground at your place (including season ticket holders) - now go on, you can do it....that was an embarrassment......g

o on admit.

i remember the commentator on the radio aghast at all the burnley fans rushing to the vomitories (never has a word been more appropriate)
Waah waah waah boo hoo hoo we took 220 because of this, and because of that and because of Kean and because of Venkys and because we knew we would lose, and because we were protesting and blah blah **** blah.

Blackburn fan in bringing up the past shock - whatever happened in 2009-10 under Coyle bears absolutely zero relevance to what will happen next season, we are a completely different team, different attitude and different players and system so we won't concede anything like 80 goals next time around.

Seeing as we are on a trip down memory lane and talking about half empty grounds - talk me through Fleawood Park being just a QUARTER full for your FA Cup Quarter final recently?

Blackburn fan in bringing up the past shock - whatever happened in 2009-10 under Coyle bears absolutely zero relevance to what will happen next season, we are a completely different team, different attitude and different players and system so we won't concede anything like 80 goals next time around. Seeing as we are on a trip down memory lane and talking about half empty grounds - talk me through Fleawood Park being just a QUARTER full for your FA Cup Quarter final recently?

Panic is setting in after the drubbing dished out by the mighty Preston, back in for a center back. Panic buys are going to be no good and a WBA reserve will not save us.

its no good slinging personal insults Glen, talk football signings etc etc. Power shift ??? you’ll be claiming Champions league team standard soon, your heads are in a dark grey cloud, about to Weewee all over your sad little one season claim to fame.
Look Keano, accept your rightful place below Burnley and try and move on.

Why don't you pop onto the Bolton Evening News website or the Blackpool Gazette or even the Bournemouth Echo? We are a Premier League side, and can't be doing with your childish second division banter.

Blackburn fans - struggling to come to terms with being back below Burnley since 2012
2 years, that's a long time isn't it ? Made all the more palatable by the 35 years of total domination before that. Even your own fans on here only give you an outside chance of staying in the Prem this sesson !! Highly likely then we'll soon be renewing aquaintances again. Enjoy it whilst you can though as we might be seeing you sooner than you think.
Hmm lets revisit this '35 years of total domination' shall we. Can you tell me how many times we played in this time please, if memory serves between 1978 and 2000 we played twice, in 1983?

Also how many years is it since you beat Burnley?

What has happened is that we 'Totally dominated' you for the 35 years prior to 1978 - you were scratching around in Division Three whilst we were winning titles and playing in the top league etc etc.

It appears to go around in cycles - We had our 30 odd years of domination, you had yours and now we are two years into our next 30 years of domination - I guess you lot better up your banter levels if you are to survive the next 30 odd years without slitting your wrists.
When we domintate we win trophies, they are the silver things with ears on.
Have you a trophy cabinet with anyting in it apart from tears ?
a win in 35 years against us is miniscule in the world of football, youll never win the Prem , we did.

Yes Dyche did well last season but you can't expect him to keep making silk purses out of sow's ears. It's just not fair on the bloke and he can't reasonably be expected to keep it up indefinately.
How do we expect to win England caps for a side that got its arse handed to it on a plate by Preston. Kevin Davies plays for Preston, maybe he should get an england cap as well

Great comments.

I think once we have signed Dawson we won't be strengthening our defence as we have cover for all positions at the back now. We need a couple of central midfielders and a wide player with pace and I think we will be good to go.

I think we will surprise a lot of people this year, just like we did last season and 17th is a more than realistic option.
Has no one wondered as if he's so good why no other cloub has shown any interest in him?
You could say the same about Arfield, Heaton and Jones and look what they did last time out. SD can improve players. In fact he will probably end up with an England cap along with Trippier and Heaton.
Yes Dyche did well last season but you can't expect him to keep making silk purses out of sow's ears. It's just not fair on the bloke and he can't reasonably be expected to keep it up indefinately.
'It's not fair on the bloke'

Ha ha ha what embarrassingly ridiculous claptrap.

Poor Dyche, it is just not fair that he has achieved promotion to the Premier League - he must be gutted and disappointed that he is lining up against Chelsea instead of Rotherham next season.

You've let yourself down there harwood - like your team, MUST DO BETTER.
Lambs to the slaughter rings a bell, Dyche will be ripping his hair out after 3 games. there’s never been such a colossal mismatch and will be the most embarrassing moment in Football history. Buying ‘Reeds’ and ‘Dawsons’ are championship standard at best. My cash is on 'no wins by xmas' for the Clarets.
Still the same old "down by Christmas - lowest points total ever - embarrassment - lambs to the slaughter" rubbish that we heard last time we were promoted. What happened then? Yes we got relegated (as do most promoted teams) but:
A: We didn't get anywhere near the lowest points total.
B: We certainly weren't an embarrasment.
C: We held up very well against the top sides (ask United, City, Arsenal and Spurs - not to mention Everton).
D: We were relegated for the sake of only 5 points, most of which were lost to lesser clubs after Coyles untimely departure.
The difference now is that we have a better team, a bigger squad and an even better manager than Coyle. Are you really suggesting that we won't be able to match Stoke, Swansea, West Ham, Villa and the like?
The predictions of Rovers fans are not predictions at all, they are simply wish lists, nothing more.
B) and C) - i remember the commentary on radio lancs or 5live describing the mass exit after about 25minutes against manchester city at turf moor
And I remember Rovers taking 220 fans for a Premier League game at City.........!
your point is what - i was answering the issue about you or oneof your chums saying you weren't an embarrassment - your own fans left before half time at your own ground!!!!!

think you conceded over 80 goals which is on average - more than 2 per game.

yeah, we took 220 to city cos it was over £40 we were in the midst of all the kean nonsense and we were in for a right hammering cos kean was clueless - turns out we had one shot at goal all game in the 89th minute and, yes, we were an embarrassment - now your turn - a half empty ground at your place (including season ticket holders) - now go on, you can do it....that was an embarrassment......g


o on admit.

i remember the commentator on the radio aghast at all the burnley fans rushing to the vomitories (never has a word been more appropriate)
Waah waah waah boo hoo hoo we took 220 because of this, and because of that and because of Kean and because of Venkys and because we knew we would lose, and because we were protesting and blah blah **** blah.

Blackburn fan in bringing up the past shock - whatever happened in 2009-10 under Coyle bears absolutely zero relevance to what will happen next season, we are a completely different team, different attitude and different players and system so we won't concede anything like 80 goals next time around.

Seeing as we are on a trip down memory lane and talking about half empty grounds - talk me through Fleawood Park being just a QUARTER full for your FA Cup Quarter final recently?
but you still ignore that original premise that you were not embarrassed - you were at your own ground your supporters couldn't cope with getting a good hiding and fled back into their mummies' arms


oh and by the way - it ws not me me that brought up the past it is your mate houseclaret.

i do hope you are right that you don't concede 80 goals next time around - but there is no way you can be certain. i would wager you didn't think you would concede 80 goals last time out. maybe you are a different team this time round - but you are still a championship squad in a premier league. the quality and types of forwards you will be up against this season bears absolutely no resemblance to those of last season - if you can't see that then you should be making an appointment at specsavers.

and to take your waah waah waah infantile comment - go on explain why the ground was empty before half time - was there a sudden surge in demand for benny n hot in jimmy hargreaves stand?

Look Keano, accept your rightful place below Burnley and try and move on.

Why don't you pop onto the Bolton Evening News website or the Blackpool Gazette or even the Bournemouth Echo? We are a Premier League side, and can't be doing with your childish second division banter.

Blackburn fans - struggling to come to terms with being back below Burnley since 2012
2 years, that's a long time isn't it ? Made all the more palatable by the 35 years of total domination before that. Even your own fans on here only give you an outside chance of staying in the Prem this sesson !! Highly likely then we'll soon be renewing aquaintances again. Enjoy it whilst you can though as we might be seeing you sooner than you think.
Hmm lets revisit this '35 years of total domination' shall we. Can you tell me how many times we played in this time please, if memory serves between 1978 and 2000 we played twice, in 1983?

Also how many years is it since you beat Burnley?

What has happened is that we 'Totally dominated' you for the 35 years prior to 1978 - you were scratching around in Division Three whilst we were winning titles and playing in the top league etc etc.

It appears to go around in cycles - We had our 30 odd years of domination, you had yours and now we are two years into our next 30 years of domination - I guess you lot better up your banter levels if you are to survive the next 30 odd years without slitting your wrists.
When we domintate we win trophies, they are the silver things with ears on.
Have you a trophy cabinet with anyting in it apart from tears ?
a win in 35 years against us is miniscule in the world of football, youll never win the Prem , we did.
An you will never EVER play in the Prem again - we are in two and a half weeks.

How upset on a scale of one to ten does that make you feel?

Eh?

Aww.

Do you honestly believe West Brom are going to sell us an English center half capable of winning an England cap and moving from one premier league club to another for 2 million?

Wow, so your general point is that thousands of Burnley fans left before half time on a game where we were 5-0 down and more to the point it was absolutely p*ssing it down and everyone was drenched?

Yep - I also left just before the fifth goal went in because I was sat low down in the James Hargreaves stand with my five year old son and we were both soaked to the skin and he was crying - guess that makes me a bad fan.

When we got promoted under Owen Coyle we conceded 61 goals during our promotion season, so we were obviously going to concede more than that because Coyle couldn't set his teams up to defend. Last season we had the best defence conceding just 35 goals and as I have mentioned defend from front to back so we are a unit, so I am absolutely certain we won't concede anything like 80 goals and we will also gain enough points needed to survive.

C: We held up very well against the top sides (ask United, City, Arsenal and Spurs - not to mention Everton). D: We were relegated for the sake of only 5 points, most of which were lost to lesser clubs after Coyles untimely departure. The difference now is that we have a better team, a bigger squad and an even better manager than Coyle. Are you really suggesting that we won't be able to match Stoke, Swansea, West Ham, Villa and the like? The predictions of Rovers fans are not predictions at all, they are simply wish lists, nothing more.[/p][/quote]B) and C) - i remember the commentary on radio lancs or 5live describing the mass exit after about 25minutes against manchester city at turf moor[/p][/quote]And I remember Rovers taking 220 fans for a Premier League game at City.........![/p][/quote]your point is what - i was answering the issue about you or oneof your chums saying you weren't an embarrassment - your own fans left before half time at your own ground!!!!! think you conceded over 80 goals which is on average - more than 2 per game. yeah, we took 220 to city cos it was over £40 we were in the midst of all the kean nonsense and we were in for a right hammering cos kean was clueless - turns out we had one shot at goal all game in the 89th minute and, yes, we were an embarrassment - now your turn - a half empty ground at your place (including season ticket holders) - now go on, you can do it....that was an embarrassment......g o on admit. i remember the commentator on the radio aghast at all the burnley fans rushing to the vomitories (never has a word been more appropriate)[/p][/quote]Waah waah waah boo hoo hoo we took 220 because of this, and because of that and because of Kean and because of Venkys and because we knew we would lose, and because we were protesting and blah blah **** blah. Blackburn fan in bringing up the past shock - whatever happened in 2009-10 under Coyle bears absolutely zero relevance to what will happen next season, we are a completely different team, different attitude and different players and system so we won't concede anything like 80 goals next time around. Seeing as we are on a trip down memory lane and talking about half empty grounds - talk me through Fleawood Park being just a QUARTER full for your FA Cup Quarter final recently?[/p][/quote]but you still ignore that original premise that you were not embarrassed - you were at your own ground your supporters couldn't cope with getting a good hiding and fled back into their mummies' arms oh and by the way - it ws not me me that brought up the past it is your mate houseclaret. i do hope you are right that you don't concede 80 goals next time around - but there is no way you can be certain. i would wager you didn't think you would concede 80 goals last time out. maybe you are a different team this time round - but you are still a championship squad in a premier league. the quality and types of forwards you will be up against this season bears absolutely no resemblance to those of last season - if you can't see that then you should be making an appointment at specsavers. and to take your waah waah waah infantile comment - go on explain why the ground was empty before half time - was there a sudden surge in demand for benny n hot in jimmy hargreaves stand?[/p][/quote]Wow, so your general point is that thousands of Burnley fans left before half time on a game where we were 5-0 down and more to the point it was absolutely p*ssing it down and everyone was drenched? Yep - I also left just before the fifth goal went in because I was sat low down in the James Hargreaves stand with my five year old son and we were both soaked to the skin and he was crying - guess that makes me a bad fan. When we got promoted under Owen Coyle we conceded 61 goals during our promotion season, so we were obviously going to concede more than that because Coyle couldn't set his teams up to defend. Last season we had the best defence conceding just 35 goals and as I have mentioned defend from front to back so we are a unit, so I am absolutely certain we won't concede anything like 80 goals and we will also gain enough points needed to survive.

2 years, that's a long time isn't it ? Made all the more palatable by the 35 years of total domination before that.

Hmm lets revisit this '35 years of total domination' shall we. Can you tell me how many times we played in this time please, if memory serves between 1978 and 2000 we played twice, in 1983?

Also how many years is it since you beat Burnley?

What has happened is that we 'Totally dominated' you for the 35 years prior to 1978 - you were scratching around in Division Three whilst we were winning titles and playing in the top league etc etc.

It appears to go around in cycles - We had our 30 odd years of domination, you had yours and now we are two years into our next 30 years of domination - I guess you lot better up your banter levels if you are to survive the next 30 odd years without slitting your wrists.
When we domintate we win trophies, they are the silver things with ears on.
Have you a trophy cabinet with anyting in it apart from tears ?
a win in 35 years against us is miniscule in the world of football, youll never win the Prem , we did.
1...it's not our fault you wern't around to play us whilst you were swanning around a couple of divisions below us for most of the time.
2... I'm not bothered how you "totally dominated us" in pre historic times.
3... You've been above us for all of two season after Venkys 'pulled all the legs off the spider' so it couldn't fight back....well done.
4... I agree with all of your realistic supporters that you'll be lucky to stay up this season. Some have said it on here. So, as I say, we'll probably be seeing you soon.

One of the twonks was actually bragging on a Rovers story that he had posted enough crap on the Trippier story that the comments had to be removed. Imbecilic. Ignore them!

I didn't "bring up the past" at all. I was simply stating that we had heard it all before and making comparisons. Can you deny that last time we were promoted you lot were singing the same song as now and you were proved wrong then? What IS a blast from the past is the noise that Rovers fans are making: there appears to be nothing new in the world when it comes to the Ewood bunch.
Here is the news: Walker's money has gone, along with several managers and your now dim and distant membership of the top table. Deal with it and just maybe, at some point in the future, you may claw your way back to the top, as we have had to do. It takes a lot of hard work and effort, along with no little patience, but it can be done, in time.

I have reported said "twonk" several times to the telegraph to no avail. They appear to ignore any legitimate complaints. I agree with you Zom, banter is one thing but the stupidity of some is beyond belief. I have a laugh with certain Rovers because they post well, even if I disagree with them. But there are some who I will never answer, whatever they post. The worst offender even answered one of my posts today, even though he knows full well it will get no response from me.

It appears to go around in cycles - We had our 30 odd years of domination, you had yours and now we are two years into our next 30 years of domination - I guess you lot better up your banter levels if you are to survive the next 30 odd years without slitting your wrists.
When we domintate we win trophies, they are the silver things with ears on.
Have you a trophy cabinet with anyting in it apart from tears ?
a win in 35 years against us is miniscule in the world of football, youll never win the Prem , we did.
1...it's not our fault you wern't around to play us whilst you were swanning around a couple of divisions below us for most of the time.
2... I'm not bothered how you "totally dominated us" in pre historic times.
3... You've been above us for all of two season after Venkys 'pulled all the legs off the spider' so it couldn't fight back....well done.
4... I agree with all of your realistic supporters that you'll be lucky to stay up this season. Some have said it on here. So, as I say, we'll probably be seeing you soon.
To be fair, how can you 'totally dominate us' when you didn't actually play us? And that 35 year old MEMORY that you have is just that a MEMORY, your dominance has gone, your money has gone, and most of your fans have gone, and your 35 year old comfort blanket has been ripped from your fat pudgy hands.

Boo hoo hoo Venkys' pulled the leg off the spider' did they? Aww have they ruined football for you now that you are no longer in your beloved Premier League?

Ha ha ha ha - get watching the Mighty Clarets on MOTD and on Sky, at least one of the East Lancashire clubs is getting to play in the top league - and don't you just HATE THIS?
See you next season. Lots of your fellow fans seem to think so. Who am I to argue ?

Great comments.

I think once we have signed Dawson we won't be strengthening our defence as we have cover for all positions at the back now. We need a couple of central midfielders and a wide player with pace and I think we will be good to go.

I think we will surprise a lot of people this year, just like we did last season and 17th is a more than realistic option.
Has no one wondered as if he's so good why no other cloub has shown any interest in him?
You could say the same about Arfield, Heaton and Jones and look what they did last time out. SD can improve players. In fact he will probably end up with an England cap along with Trippier and Heaton.
Yes Dyche did well last season but you can't expect him to keep making silk purses out of sow's ears. It's just not fair on the bloke and he can't reasonably be expected to keep it up indefinately.
'It's not fair on the bloke'

Ha ha ha what embarrassingly ridiculous claptrap.

Poor Dyche, it is just not fair that he has achieved promotion to the Premier League - he must be gutted and disappointed that he is lining up against Chelsea instead of Rotherham next season.

You've let yourself down there harwood - like your team, MUST DO BETTER.
You see reach round, there will come a point when Dyche will become sick of this having no money to spend and having to perform miracles on peanuts. Just keep your head in the bucket and you won't even know he's gone.
Hello Harwood,

Pathetic Rovers blubbering. We had some genuine comments earlier on in the feed, from sensible football fans from the Rovers end. But now back to the same old spiteful, petty comments.
Mate check your team/board and current league against ours and then do everybody a favour and shut up because you clearly have nothing sensible to contribute.
End of!

Hello Harwood,

All depends what's in the bucket Mc.
Anyway your 'fellow' claret chose not to reply to my point for some reason. Dyche did perform a 'miracle' on peanuts last season but my point was how long can he be expected to keep it up , especially in the Prem, without substantial backing from the board. To me he seems to be on a hiding to nothing.

I think it's important you keep the 2 strikers fit as I'm not convinced by the new signings, not to say they won't score goals though as it depends what the manager does with them.
Great comments.

I think once we have signed Dawson we won't be strengthening our defence as we have cover for all positions at the back now. We need a couple of central midfielders and a wide player with pace and I think we will be good to go.

I think we will surprise a lot of people this year, just like we did last season and 17th is a more than realistic option.
Has no one wondered as if he's so good why no other cloub has shown any interest in him?
You could say the same about Arfield, Heaton and Jones and look what they did last time out. SD can improve players. In fact he will probably end up with an England cap along with Trippier and Heaton.
Yes Dyche did well last season but you can't expect him to keep making silk purses out of sow's ears. It's just not fair on the bloke and he can't reasonably be expected to keep it up indefinately.
'It's not fair on the bloke'

Ha ha ha what embarrassingly ridiculous claptrap.

Poor Dyche, it is just not fair that he has achieved promotion to the Premier League - he must be gutted and disappointed that he is lining up against Chelsea instead of Rotherham next season.

You've let yourself down there harwood - like your team, MUST DO BETTER.
Lambs to the slaughter rings a bell, Dyche will be ripping his hair out after 3 games. there’s never been such a colossal mismatch and will be the most embarrassing moment in Football history. Buying ‘Reeds’ and ‘Dawsons’ are championship standard at best. My cash is on 'no wins by xmas' for the Clarets.
Still the same old "down by Christmas - lowest points total ever - embarrassment - lambs to the slaughter" rubbish that we heard last time we were promoted. What happened then? Yes we got relegated (as do most promoted teams) but:
A: We didn't get anywhere near the lowest points total.
B: We certainly weren't an embarrasment.
C: We held up very well against the top sides (ask United, City, Arsenal and Spurs - not to mention Everton).
D: We were relegated for the sake of only 5 points, most of which were lost to lesser clubs after Coyles untimely departure.
The difference now is that we have a better team, a bigger squad and an even better manager than Coyle. Are you really suggesting that we won't be able to match Stoke, Swansea, West Ham, Villa and the like?
The predictions of Rovers fans are not predictions at all, they are simply wish lists, nothing more.
B) and C) - i remember the commentary on radio lancs or 5live describing the mass exit after about 25minutes against manchester city at turf moor
And I remember Rovers taking 220 fans for a Premier League game at City.........!
your point is what - i was answering the issue about you or oneof your chums saying you weren't an embarrassment - your own fans left before half time at your own ground!!!!!

think you conceded over 80 goals which is on average - more than 2 per game.

yeah, we took 220 to city cos it was over £40 we were in the midst of all the kean nonsense and we were in for a right hammering cos kean was clueless - turns out we had one shot at goal all game in the 89th minute and, yes, we were an embarrassment - now your turn - a half empty ground at your place (including season ticket holders) - now go on, you can do it....that was an embarrassment......g




o on admit.

i remember the commentator on the radio aghast at all the burnley fans rushing to the vomitories (never has a word been more appropriate)
Waah waah waah boo hoo hoo we took 220 because of this, and because of that and because of Kean and because of Venkys and because we knew we would lose, and because we were protesting and blah blah **** blah.

Blackburn fan in bringing up the past shock - whatever happened in 2009-10 under Coyle bears absolutely zero relevance to what will happen next season, we are a completely different team, different attitude and different players and system so we won't concede anything like 80 goals next time around.

Seeing as we are on a trip down memory lane and talking about half empty grounds - talk me through Fleawood Park being just a QUARTER full for your FA Cup Quarter final recently?
but you still ignore that original premise that you were not embarrassed - you were at your own ground your supporters couldn't cope with getting a good hiding and fled back into their mummies' arms


oh and by the way - it ws not me me that brought up the past it is your mate houseclaret.

i do hope you are right that you don't concede 80 goals next time around - but there is no way you can be certain. i would wager you didn't think you would concede 80 goals last time out. maybe you are a different team this time round - but you are still a championship squad in a premier league. the quality and types of forwards you will be up against this season bears absolutely no resemblance to those of last season - if you can't see that then you should be making an appointment at specsavers.

and to take your waah waah waah infantile comment - go on explain why the ground was empty before half time - was there a sudden surge in demand for benny n hot in jimmy hargreaves stand?
Wow, so your general point is that thousands of Burnley fans left before half time on a game where we were 5-0 down and more to the point it was absolutely p*ssing it down and everyone was drenched?

Yep - I also left just before the fifth goal went in because I was sat low down in the James Hargreaves stand with my five year old son and we were both soaked to the skin and he was crying - guess that makes me a bad fan.

When we got promoted under Owen Coyle we conceded 61 goals during our promotion season, so we were obviously going to concede more than that because Coyle couldn't set his teams up to defend. Last season we had the best defence conceding just 35 goals and as I have mentioned defend from front to back so we are a unit, so I am absolutely certain we won't concede anything like 80 goals and we will also gain enough points needed to survive.
Part time supporters leave early, stalwarts stay until the end, you are obviously a lightweight

here is a general point for you (it may be one more than you get next season) - the premise by houseclaret was that you were not embarrassed by some teams in the prem last time - YOU WERE! and that you held up against the big sides - YOU DIDN'T.....now if you cannot accept this as fact, then there is no point carrying on the discussion.
i am prepared to admit that we were and have been an embarrassment in recent seasons - why can't you accept it that you were in the prem season and the sales of season tickets this season do not look encouraging.

next i have now got houseclaret going on about me accusing him/her of dragging up the past - well no, it was in answer to your accusation about me dragging up the past - now the two of you need to get your stories straight.

you sometimes show signs that evolution ha reached burnley but then you go and blow it by arguing some specious point - try a bit harder and you make free yourself of your dingle chains. i particularly love your hypocrisy where you berate rovers fans for being on dingle pages then try to act as an interloper on rovers pages - you can't have it both ways.

There are a number of good posts from both sides of the M65 but if you allow yourselves to rise to the twonks who only post crap then this thread, as countless others already have, will descend into playground mentality tiffs.
One of the twonks was actually bragging on a Rovers story that he had posted enough crap on the Trippier story that the comments had to be removed. Imbecilic. Ignore them!
I have reported said "twonk" several times to the telegraph to no avail. They appear to ignore any legitimate complaints. I agree with you Zom, banter is one thing but the stupidity of some is beyond belief. I have a laugh with certain Rovers because they post well, even if I disagree with them. But there are some who I will never answer, whatever they post. The worst offender even answered one of my posts today, even though he knows full well it will get no response from me.
You can only report someone and have them removed, if they have done something wrong, You also have to know what they have done wrong, hence me getting Crispy removed and a few others for calling people racists. You cannot do that just for the hell of it.
The guy who got the trippier story blocked was actually one of yours, pretending to be me, trying to get me banned, but here I am. Offering up my pearls of wisdom.

Great comments.

I think we will surprise a lot of people this year, just like we did last season and 17th is a more than realistic option.

You could say the same about Arfield, Heaton and Jones and look what they did last time out. SD can improve players. In fact he will probably end up with an England cap along with Trippier and Heaton.
Yes Dyche did well last season but you can't expect him to keep making silk purses out of sow's ears. It's just not fair on the bloke and he can't reasonably be expected to keep it up indefinately.
'It's not fair on the bloke'

Ha ha ha what embarrassingly ridiculous claptrap.

Poor Dyche, it is just not fair that he has achieved promotion to the Premier League - he must be gutted and disappointed that he is lining up against Chelsea instead of Rotherham next season.

You've let yourself down there harwood - like your team, MUST DO BETTER.
Lambs to the slaughter rings a bell, Dyche will be ripping his hair out after 3 games. there’s never been such a colossal mismatch and will be the most embarrassing moment in Football history. Buying ‘Reeds’ and ‘Dawsons’ are championship standard at best. My cash is on 'no wins by xmas' for the Clarets.
Still the same old "down by Christmas - lowest points total ever - embarrassment - lambs to the slaughter" rubbish that we heard last time we were promoted. What happened then? Yes we got relegated (as do most promoted teams) but:
A: We didn't get anywhere near the lowest points total.
B: We certainly weren't an embarrasment.
C: We held up very well against the top sides (ask United, City, Arsenal and Spurs - not to mention Everton).
D: We were relegated for the sake of only 5 points, most of which were lost to lesser clubs after Coyles untimely departure.
The difference now is that we have a better team, a bigger squad and an even better manager than Coyle. Are you really suggesting that we won't be able to match Stoke, Swansea, West Ham, Villa and the like?
The predictions of Rovers fans are not predictions at all, they are simply wish lists, nothing more.
B) and C) - i remember the commentary on radio lancs or 5live describing the mass exit after about 25minutes against manchester city at turf moor
And I remember Rovers taking 220 fans for a Premier League game at City.........!
your point is what - i was answering the issue about you or oneof your chums saying you weren't an embarrassment - your own fans left before half time at your own ground!!!!!

think you conceded over 80 goals which is on average - more than 2 per game.

yeah, we took 220 to city cos it was over £40 we were in the midst of all the kean nonsense and we were in for a right hammering cos kean was clueless - turns out we had one shot at goal all game in the 89th minute and, yes, we were an embarrassment - now your turn - a half empty ground at your place (including season ticket holders) - now go on, you can do it....that was an embarrassment......g





o on admit.

i remember the commentator on the radio aghast at all the burnley fans rushing to the vomitories (never has a word been more appropriate)
Waah waah waah boo hoo hoo we took 220 because of this, and because of that and because of Kean and because of Venkys and because we knew we would lose, and because we were protesting and blah blah **** blah.

Blackburn fan in bringing up the past shock - whatever happened in 2009-10 under Coyle bears absolutely zero relevance to what will happen next season, we are a completely different team, different attitude and different players and system so we won't concede anything like 80 goals next time around.

Seeing as we are on a trip down memory lane and talking about half empty grounds - talk me through Fleawood Park being just a QUARTER full for your FA Cup Quarter final recently?
but you still ignore that original premise that you were not embarrassed - you were at your own ground your supporters couldn't cope with getting a good hiding and fled back into their mummies' arms


oh and by the way - it ws not me me that brought up the past it is your mate houseclaret.

i do hope you are right that you don't concede 80 goals next time around - but there is no way you can be certain. i would wager you didn't think you would concede 80 goals last time out. maybe you are a different team this time round - but you are still a championship squad in a premier league. the quality and types of forwards you will be up against this season bears absolutely no resemblance to those of last season - if you can't see that then you should be making an appointment at specsavers.

and to take your waah waah waah infantile comment - go on explain why the ground was empty before half time - was there a sudden surge in demand for benny n hot in jimmy hargreaves stand?
Wow, so your general point is that thousands of Burnley fans left before half time on a game where we were 5-0 down and more to the point it was absolutely p*ssing it down and everyone was drenched?

Yep - I also left just before the fifth goal went in because I was sat low down in the James Hargreaves stand with my five year old son and we were both soaked to the skin and he was crying - guess that makes me a bad fan.

When we got promoted under Owen Coyle we conceded 61 goals during our promotion season, so we were obviously going to concede more than that because Coyle couldn't set his teams up to defend. Last season we had the best defence conceding just 35 goals and as I have mentioned defend from front to back so we are a unit, so I am absolutely certain we won't concede anything like 80 goals and we will also gain enough points needed to survive.
Part time supporters leave early, stalwarts stay until the end, you are obviously a lightweight
But he was a bit wet AP4B. We've got to make allowances for that.

Yes you're more likely to get a known quantity, but you're most definitley going to pay an over inflated price for buying British. If you've got good scouting and management, you have to consider bringing some foreigners in, particularly when you're reluctant to spend. And regarding strikers, you really think they can play 2 up top in the Prem and survive? No chance. You seem quite positive for a neutral, particularly considering they just got beat by League 1 Preston.

i am prepared to admit that we were and have been an embarrassment in recent seasons - why can't you accept it that you were in the prem season and the sales of season tickets this season do not look encouraging.

next i have now got houseclaret going on about me accusing him/her of dragging up the past - well no, it was in answer to your accusation about me dragging up the past - now the two of you need to get your stories straight.

you sometimes show signs that evolution ha reached burnley but then you go and blow it by arguing some specious point - try a bit harder and you make free yourself of your dingle chains. i particularly love your hypocrisy where you berate rovers fans for being on dingle pages then try to act as an interloper on rovers pages - you can't have it both ways."

You haven't backed up your post with facts have you? I did.
You DID actually say I was dragging up the past, read your post, I even quoted it. As far as holding up okay against the top clubs, I did again back it up: United beaten, Spurs beaten, Everton beaten, Arsenal draw, City draw, not to mention a late goal against or we would have drawn with Chelsea at home. We only lost heavily in a couple of games. Ergo, we were NOT an embarrassment and we DID hold up okay against the top clubs.
Care to respond with some facts?

Great comments.

I think once we have signed Dawson we won't be strengthening our defence as we have cover for all positions at the back now. We need a couple of central midfielders and a wide player with pace and I think we will be good to go.

I think we will surprise a lot of people this year, just like we did last season and 17th is a more than realistic option.

You could say the same about Arfield, Heaton and Jones and look what they did last time out. SD can improve players. In fact he will probably end up with an England cap along with Trippier and Heaton.
Yes Dyche did well last season but you can't expect him to keep making silk purses out of sow's ears. It's just not fair on the bloke and he can't reasonably be expected to keep it up indefinately.
'It's not fair on the bloke'

Ha ha ha what embarrassingly ridiculous claptrap.

Poor Dyche, it is just not fair that he has achieved promotion to the Premier League - he must be gutted and disappointed that he is lining up against Chelsea instead of Rotherham next season.

Buying ‘Reeds’ and ‘Dawsons’ are championship standard at best. My cash is on 'no wins by xmas' for the Clarets.[/p][/quote]Still the same old "down by Christmas - lowest points total ever - embarrassment - lambs to the slaughter" rubbish that we heard last time we were promoted. What happened then? Yes we got relegated (as do most promoted teams) but: A: We didn't get anywhere near the lowest points total. B: We certainly weren't an embarrasment. C: We held up very well against the top sides (ask United, City, Arsenal and Spurs - not to mention Everton). D: We were relegated for the sake of only 5 points, most of which were lost to lesser clubs after Coyles untimely departure. The difference now is that we have a better team, a bigger squad and an even better manager than Coyle. Are you really suggesting that we won't be able to match Stoke, Swansea, West Ham, Villa and the like? The predictions of Rovers fans are not predictions at all, they are simply wish lists, nothing more.[/p][/quote]B) and C) - i remember the commentary on radio lancs or 5live describing the mass exit after about 25minutes against manchester city at turf moor[/p][/quote]Yes just like the mass exit at Deadwood when Ings popped in the winner on March 9th. tall in the saddle

Great comments.

I think once we have signed Dawson we won't be strengthening our defence as we have cover for all positions at the back now. We need a couple of central midfielders and a wide player with pace and I think we will be good to go.

I think we will surprise a lot of people this year, just like we did last season and 17th is a more than realistic option.
Has no one wondered as if he's so good why no other cloub has shown any interest in him?
You could say the same about Arfield, Heaton and Jones and look what they did last time out. SD can improve players. In fact he will probably end up with an England cap along with Trippier and Heaton.
CUCKOO, CUCKOO, CUCKOO !!!

You have obviously been roundhoused into mental capacity oblivion, it must be like being in the K Hole.
Excuse me but you are the idiot brainless one on here Tom Tit. Yes I see it now three English internationals in the making. Meanwhile down at Deadwood oh dear Gary couldn’t win a game against Rammy United (and that’s no disrespect to them).

Having seen the England team recently which you may also have in a lucid moment Trippier and Heaton must be nailed on for caps very soon. No argument about it. Thicko.

Yes Dyche did well last season but you can't expect him to keep making silk purses out of sow's ears. It's just not fair on the bloke and he can't reasonably be expected to keep it up indefinately.
'It's not fair on the bloke'

Ha ha ha what embarrassingly ridiculous claptrap.

Poor Dyche, it is just not fair that he has achieved promotion to the Premier League - he must be gutted and disappointed that he is lining up against Chelsea instead of Rotherham next season.

You've let yourself down there harwood - like your team, MUST DO BETTER.
You see reach round, there will come a point when Dyche will become sick of this having no money to spend and having to perform miracles on peanuts. Just keep your head in the bucket and you won't even know he's gone.
Pathetic Rovers blubbering. We had some genuine comments earlier on in the feed, from sensible football fans from the Rovers end. But now back to the same old spiteful, petty comments.
Mate check your team/board and current league against ours and then do everybody a favour and shut up because you clearly have nothing sensible to contribute.
End of!
Sensible posters from Rover?. The jealousy has got too much and when this season unfolds oh my it’s going to be more of the floods of tears like March 9th when they all left the ground sobbing and screaming.

You can only report someone and have them removed, if they have done something wrong, You also have to know what they have done wrong, hence me getting Crispy removed and a few others for calling people racists. You cannot do that just for the hell of it.

Somehow I don't think so Barry as people can see right through you for what you are, a complete waste of time with nothing to offer up footballing wise that makes any sense. Do your worst you cretin you are all hot air and no brains and not really worth the time or space to respond intellectually to as you don't even know what it means.
Enjoy your multiple personas because it wont be long before you, my multiple identity, cross dressing, switch hitting friend are banned for life. Now that would be the best early Christmas present every Burnley fan could wish for, and maybe some if not all Rovers fans as well.

Fully agree with Dyche's philosophy of only buying British players. By and large you get what you pay for with a couple of obvious exceptions i.e. Andy Carroll. Players of this guys calibre will be valuable when the nitty gritty winter arrives. I think you have a very decent chance of survival this summer if you can do the right business, in my opinion if you could get this guy, and possibly one more centre half on loan, another centre midfielder then also keep Ings and Vokes (when he returns) fit there will be at least 3 teams worse than you. I think it's important you keep the 2 strikers fit as I'm not convinced by the new signings, not to say they won't score goals though as it depends what the manager does with them.[/p][/quote]Great comments. I think once we have signed Dawson we won't be strengthening our defence as we have cover for all positions at the back now. We need a couple of central midfielders and a wide player with pace and I think we will be good to go. I think we will surprise a lot of people this year, just like we did last season and 17th is a more than realistic option.[/p][/quote]Has no one wondered as if he's so good why no other cloub has shown any interest in him?[/p][/quote]You could say the same about Arfield, Heaton and Jones and look what they did last time out. SD can improve players. In fact he will probably end up with an England cap along with Trippier and Heaton.[/p][/quote]Oh my lord, we haven't played one PL game, we got our arses handed to us on a plate and this numpty is handing out england caps to WBA reserves and city castoffs, you truly are a deluded tool[/p][/quote]Having seen the England team recently which you may also have in a lucid moment Trippier and Heaton must be nailed on for caps very soon. No argument about it. Thicko.[/p][/quote]Cuckoo, Cuckoo Cuckoo. Having never even kicked a ball in the premier league this season and this fence post is handing out england caps.
