Burnley boss Dyche points to pre-season positives in preparation for Chelsea

First published in News
Last updated

BURNLEY boss Sean Dyche believes his players are ready for the big kick-off after completing their pre-season programme on a high.

The Clarets came from behind against Verona to win 3-1 in their sixth and final friendly.

But more significantly, Dyche was pleased to see his players come through the game unscathed as he prepares to finalise his plans for their Premier League opener with Chelsea on Monday week.

"The main thing was to come through with as many people fit as possible," he said.

"There were changes today again - it's not necessarily the side (to start season), it was important we get minutes into people and we did that again.

"We're pleased with that, and that the minor injuries we've had in pre-season have cleared up."

After a goalless first half, despite chances for both sides, Verona took the lead a minute into the second through Lazaros Christodoulopoulos.

The Clarets reacted quickly to equalise through Matt Taylor, before Lukas Jutkiewicz put Burnley in front with a header just after the hour.

Second half substitute Ross Wallace completed the win with a free kick.

"I thought first half we were ok, the tempo was a little bit slow, but after a crazy first couple of minutes in the second half, we got a grip of things and played much more like what we're about, and there were three very good goals, and a great reaction, which we have a name for," said Dyche.

"They were no mugs and we gave a really good account of ourselves, and were going ever so strong physically at the end."

Dyche has certainly got you lot looking in fine form ahead of the big game against Chelsea. Pains me to say it but I really think you might able to spring a surprise and come away with a good result.

Hi Fake Turfie, I think you may have banged your head, Burnley will be like lambs to the slaughter against Chelsea. No shame as so will others, but I expect us to get our arses handed to us on a plate with the usual delirium and positive spin glossing over the forthcoming turd. If we survive with this band of journeymen I will be very surprised

Given that both you and I are Blackburn Rovers fans, and given that we are in fact two parts of the same physical person, is it not strange that we both feel so differently as to the prospects of our Premier League neighbours?

After all is said and done you cannot deny that they achieved something fantastic last season, something that we'd both love our club to achieve, you cannot deny that they deserve their place in the Premier League and have earn't it the right way without having to throw money at it like we did as we fleeced that poor old man with the damp patch on his crotch, I forget his name.

You cannot deny that they now have the infrastructure in place to mount a serious survival bid given that all of the major parts in their success story have stuck around and indeed many have signed up on long term contracts such is their love for the club, if only we had such loyalty at Rovers then perhaps we wouldn't be considered such a stepping stone for the likes of Jordan Rhodes. Even their manager has signed a new 3 year contract after both you and I publicly insisted on numerous occasions that he would leave them, now don't be both look silly?

Its time we both faced up to it, the Clarets are superior to us in every way, the football they play is better, the squad they have is better, their manager is better, their support is better, their prospect are better. Our aim should be to replicate their achievements, but that I'm afraid to say will remain a dream given that we are shortly to be subject to Financial Fair Play sanctions. It's all going wrong for us, tragically wrong.

Perhaps now you might be decent enough to cease your incessant whining and allow me some peace, your voice in my head is at times overwhelming.

Trouble is, we've got nothing left to throw at them since they beat us at Ewood Park and then went up, and then kept us out of the play-off's. Makes me so angry at times, but I'm learning to deal with my issues, I can highly recommend counselling.

Exactly. Burnley need to concentrate on the games they definitely can win, and maybe pick up a few bonuses on the way. This is what Sam Allardyce has done for years.
Hopefully Burnley can emulate that but playing attractive football on the way.

Blackburn fans' insistence that Burnley losing against Chelsea would be some kind of epiphany is a sure sign that our respective fortunes have changed.
Our season will not be defined by results against the Chelsea's of the world, we will have our own little battle against Hull, palace, Leicester, West Ham, Sunderland and the rest.
We will definitely accumulate enough points to stay up in my opinion.
Exactly. Burnley need to concentrate on the games they definitely can win, and maybe pick up a few bonuses on the way. This is what Sam Allardyce has done for years.
Hopefully Burnley can emulate that but playing attractive football on the way.
Well you had better put Man U and Arsenal on that list because we beat and drew with them regularly, home or away. Just ask Wenger and Ferguson if they enjoyed Ewood.

And then you got relegated with a chicken on the pitch.

And then you lost at home to Burnley.

And then Burnley went up.

And where did that get you?

Well done on beating Man Utd (We did four years ago by the way) and drawing with Arsenal (We did four years ago by the way) and we also beat Spurs and Everton and drew with Man City etc etc.

Means nowt now though does it when you are preparing for a game against Blackpool and we are preparing for a game against Chelsea?

Like I said - it just shows how much our respective fortunes have changed. When Rovers were in the Premier League there was nothing but contempt for Burnley playing in the second tier (The Chumpionship I believe you hilariously called it), and no Rovers fans even bothered to comment on Burnley articles.

Look at the difference now - Blackburn fans can't take what they have dished out for years, and look at every Burnley article, completely infested with jealous Blackburn fans trying to pour water on Burnley's fantastic achievements.

What a shame.
