1991/92 is my favourite ever season watching Burnley. The sheer excitement is something which will never be topped for me. Maybe it was the terraces. Maybe it was the atmosphere.

Burnley v Sunderland 31st January 1953. Several supporters injured when the Bee Hole End wall collapsed. Mostly children hurt. Bob Lord was the Grounds manager then.

When watching the York video the other day the commentator described him as 'King James the first of Burnley'.

I will go along with that.

‘The King James’ would have been a brilliant name for the revamped Turf Hotel next to The Royal Dyche. Picture of Jimmy as a king.
