I should have been nervous. I should have been tearing my hair out, unable to eat or sleep.

I should have been churning over and over every single calculation, permutation and remaining fixture. I wasn’t. I was, on the contrary, incredibly calm.

Saturday was the game that had been billed as a huge relegation decider and THE defining game of the season for the Clarets.

Even though the restoration of an eight-point gap to 17th place had diluted the gravity of the game, Clarets fans knew that wins for Cardiff against Burnley and Brighton would see that gap shrink to just two points with the prospect of four very tricky remaining fixtures to come.

A sea of claret flags greeted our arrival at Turf Moor, as fans got behind the boys and reminded them just what they were playing for.

'Up the Clarets' the flags cried and it worked because the Clarets were firmly in control and I am still scratching my head as to how we didn’t go in at half-time with at least a three-goal lead.

It was inevitable that the second half would present itself with a few challenges and threaten to derail my calm persona.

A one-goal advantage is rarely sufficient in the Premier League and Cardiff were always going to come out fighting for their lives. It wasn’t comfortable in the end, and neither was it pretty.

But the Clarets just looked the better side, our quality was obvious and we were never going to lose that game.

We are starting to look like a proper Premier League outfit.

Which is probably a good job as, barring a ridiculous set of results, the Clarets will be playing a fourth consecutive season in the top flight next year.

Sounds nice that, huh?

I could have written this week's column three times over to be honest.

There was penalty drama, referee drama, Neil Warnock and his conspiracy theories, Warnock and his inaccurate accusations - Burnley players do not surround referees, and Warnock and his selective memory.

I could also have written a whole piece on Dwight McNeil which I will probably end up doing when he wins player of the year.

Instead, I will just say that on Saturday, as has happened numerous times in our history together, the stars aligned over Turf Moor and Burnley Football Club showed the world what it means to be a Claret.

Whether you play for the badge, or cheer from the stands, we are one club and together we can achieve anything.
