Re: Who is this that put us through agony?

Did we have players that joined the clergy? Someone mentioned Alan West. Wasn't Dave Merrington something like that? And Doug Collins? Don't think Dave Merrington actually became a clergyman although he was very involved with a Church in Burnley when he lived in the area. Got to know Dave through w...

Re: ARTICLE: Pope in goal almost 61 years after McDonald

McDonald was Burnley's goalkeeper when I first started watching the Clarets and when he suffered his serious injury, my dad said that Burnley were lucky to have a reserve keeper called Adam Blacklaw to take his place in the first team. Blacklaw made the most of his opportunity. In some ways history ...

Re: ARTICLE: Southend debut for Richard Taylor

Certainly is good and he must feel that his career is turning a corner. It's always sad when youngsters are told they are being released even though they must know deep down that there are quite no guarantees in football at any level.
Hope he manages to build a good career now.
