Re: ARTICLE: Clarets confirm academy retained list

With respect to O'Neill, he doesn't appear to have set the Aussie League alight. Looked a good prospect. Hard to say but surely can't be near PL standard? Hope I'm wrong and he turns into a top player

Re: Andre Gray

A Deeney Gibson exchange would be good but leaves us lacking in CB cover.
I like Deeney, seems to have overcome previous life issues. He will be a Barnes on steroids and growth hormones.
Unlikely but would be a good signing and would be great in a Dyche side.

Well done Mitch George. I grew up with his dad in the 80s and 90s. Typical armchair Liverpool fan until the Walker cash came in then was one of the wannabe Blackburn "hard" lads. Funny his kid ended up at Burnley. Dad's name? Georgey of course.
