OK, stats don't tell the full story, I'll be the first to admit that...

However, this really is a poor return & yes a lot of those are from substitute appearances but the point still stands.

Robbie Brady

I hope this is the last we see of him starting a game for Burnley FC. Lacks the mentality, imo, to be a proper player. Far too casual and reactive to situations on the pitch rather than having a sense of urgency, to be frank he does my ******* nut in. I understand that he had a bad injury but let's ...

Thing is, for all that Taylor looks good going forward, his final ball is seldom threatening, whereas the more direct approach, (generally getting the ball in the box quicker) by Pieters has been more dangerous and has brought more assists

Good point, I knew straight away that was a bad decision from Mee.
