Re: A thought for Sunday...dropping Barnes

My message was very clear, Barnes is playing very well at the moment but I don’t think he gets the best out of Wood. They both played well last night but Ashley was excellent. I’m not doubting his ability, I’ve made that clear: I’m trying to look at the forward partnership and for me, that should st...

Charlie Taylor

Easy to get wrapped up in the last ten minutes of the game, but for me, Charlie was our best player in the first half tonight. An absolutely wonderful player for us. His reading of the game is great, as his is understanding with Dwight. However, his blocks and clearances are just something else. You...

Many of you will know just how much I used to to be an advocate of wanting Burnley to start with Wood and Barnes upfront. I started a thread in the season where we ended up in Europe, pretty much pointing out the runs we go on when each of them gets into scoring form… When they got on those runs tog...

Re: Enjoyment

I expected us to be well- beaten by Wolves at home. We employed good tactics with overlapping fullbacks getting up the pitch. We got crossed into the box. Wood and Barnes looked like a partnership.

I enjoyed that game a lot.
