This is just a dirty rumour put out there to upset a few people. We all know there are no midfielders available to purchase in either the Northern or Southern hemisphere.

Re: Robbie Brady

He had hit his best form in concert with Burnley`s (our best ever in the Premier League?) when his injury occurred. He had a lovely Irish understanding with Hendrick and Ward. I still maintain the thought that his injury was self-inflicted...as it happened it stood out a mile to me. He had lost cont...

Re: Burnley v Leicester - Player Ratings

As the dreadful first half came to an end, I couldn`t see any light at the end of an ever-lengthening tunnel but kudos to the players, they really got their heads down in the 2nd half and deservedly came out on top, against a thankfully pretty plain Leicester team. A huge 3 points! We really are a d...
