Proudest Claret in Proudsville tonight

I will second that! First half we passed the ball around like Barca or Citeh, 2nd half we were back to the Burnley we know and love. Brilliant, bloody brilliant all round performance :D


Brownhill seems to be quite a find as well :)

Hart? I'd go nothing at all
Legzdins? ditto
Lennon? ditto
Bardsley? 1 year on a reduced wage
Hendrick? 2 years on what he's on now.

First 3 have zero value, Bardsley on same wage, Hendrick 5% increase.

If true about Hendrick then he can go as he quite simply is not our top player to justify being the biggest earner. Sadly we missed him tonight

That's the reason we need to re-sign Hendrick, although not as the highest earner, but well within the top pay scale.
