Ben Mee - should he be considered for the England squad?

After a man of the match display in the victory over Wolves on Saturday, it makes you wonder why Ben Mee is never in the conversation when the England squad is being picked. The most recent squad featured Everton’s Michael Keane and Mee’s teammate James Tarkowski. Ben Mee is as consistent a centre half as you’re going to find outside of the top six clubs in the Premier League. He is fully committed, a good organiser and is tidy on the ball. It makes you wonder if he was at a more fashionable club, would he be picked? That argument could have been used in the past, but Burnley had two players in the most recent England squad - with Dwight McNeil making it three when he trained with the seniors. If the centre half continues with this sort of form and Burnley survive in the relegation battle then I don’t see why Mee can’t be considered for the England squad who fly to Portugal for the semi-final of the Nations League in June.

Home form the key to staying up?

You get the feeling that Burnley’s form at Turf Moor will be a massive factor in who plays Premier League football next season. The win against Wolves will give them confidence for the remaining games - with Cardiff City due to visit in a couple of weeks. It was a near full house on Saturday, with the Burnley fans getting right behind their side. The fans sensed during the game that their team needed them, so they made their voices heard. The players rewarded the fans’ efforts with the three points. Burnley fans now go in to Bournemouth next week full of hope in picking up some points before their mammoth tie against Cardiff.

Dyche - 300 not out

As you’ve all probably heard, Saturday was Sean Dyche’s 300th game in the hot seat at Burnley. His first game was a 2-0 victory at home to Wolves, just like his 300th. Whatever happens from now until the end of the season, Dyche has written himself in to Burnley folklore after guiding the Clarets to a seventh place finish - and the Europa League - last season. 300 games in this day and age at one club is a great achievement - it shows what Dyche has been doing at the club is sustainable and successful. Who knows how many games he’ll have under his belt when his time at Burnley comes to an end.
