Ah, the football gods. Little beggars, aren’t they?

No sooner had we commenced celebrating the Clarets' first away win of the season than the Twittersphere was littered with talk of Sean Dyche "approaching" West Ham about taking over the, not yet vacant, managerial position. Sigh.

Putting to one side the rather obvious fact that there is no way on god's earth that SD would behave in such a manner – and I am prepared to wager my house on that fact – it does raise an interesting situation.

There is going to be some sort of managerial merry-go-round in the Premier League between now and Christmas, potentially started by Unai Emery leaving Arsenal.

So many other teams are under-performing – Watford, Southampton, West Ham, Everton, Manchester United – and with one boss already gone and others potentially to follow then there is likely to be a whole row of dominoes falling.

And it isn't just direct approaches from those teams that we should be wary of. Managers like Nuno Espirito Santo at Wolves and Eddie Howe at Bournemouth are likely to be targets, leaving positions that might just tempt him. Sigh.

But we have been here before, haven’t we? We survived the "nailed on" Everton link two years ago in a season we finished seventh, which is where we sit right now.

What a blooming great start to the season it has been and SD knows it! He's not going anywhere.

In many respects the performance away at Watford summed up this team.

Under par away from home in the first half, they remained in the game and stepped it up the second to ruthlessly take the points.

I am very used to this Burnley side only having 45 minutes in them, especially away from home, but we are getting very good at not crumbling under pressure.

We are mentally tough and opposition fans can cry all they want about how they'd rather quit football than watch our drivel every week – newsflash; they wouldn't – I am having the time of my life.

As such, I am very much looking forward to Crystal Palace.

Predicting the result is not easy, as you never really know which Palace side – or, indeed, which Wilfried Zaha – will turn up. But I am confident that the Clarets will storm to victory and, whisper it, I also fancy us to get something from Manchester City too!
