Re: Should I be worried about the summer

Personally think we’ve been just on the edge of having a really good squad for the past few seasons, what we need in terms of signings now is quality over quantity.

Not sure how Taylor gets back in based on that performance. Was a steady first half but grew into the game and second half can’t think where he put a foot wrong. 1.5m seems a bargain signing based off today. Was good to see the back 5 being solid today in conditions that can’t of been easy to play in.

Get Drinkwater in and think even the 4-5-1 looks stronger for the away games, midfield 3 of Westwood, Drinkwater and Cork is strong. If we could just get that Defour man fit to play 90 min every week it be without doubt the strongest midfield I’ve ever seen at Burnley.

So we shouldn’t be in trouble. Expect a finish in the bottom half but as long as no lower than 17th it’s all good.
