Re: ALK Capital or Farnell/Elkashashy takeover

I don't like the "mortgage" analogy, if I have a house which is mortgage free, I most definitely wouldn't raise another mortgage on the property if I'm going to stay living in it 🤷‍♂️ It appears to me that MG found a way to scoot off with the club's cash by selling his shares (which he has a right t...

Re: falling out of love with football?

For me it's not so much the EPL, it's more a case of the entertainment (I use this term loosely) served up. Over the last couple of seasons, the entertainment Burnley have served up, has been really poor in the main.

Thanks. It will be interesting to see what the club says. It's just that the 21/22 season is a long time off, and as you say anything can happen between now and then. £400+ is a lot of money to lose if you can no longer attend regular games 18 months down the line.
