I though Hamilton tried to pass back to our keeper but ended up lobbing it into the net.
I think there's a moment shortly afterwards that another player sends a difficult ball back to Marriott, (Monington?) and the keeper is far from happy about it!

None, but I'd make a HUGE donation to Burnley so they could upgrade the facilities at the ground and add a couple of £20m players to the squad. One condition would be the contract of the manager, and to make him an offer that he couldn't refuse.
