Re: Burnley team of the past 25 years - at their peak

That second CB position was the one I struggled with the most. No obvious choice. Frank Sinclair was the other I was considering. Possibly swayed by the fact I would have only been about 5 years old when he was at his best at Chelsea and so don’t remember it too well! Sinclair was a decent player i...

Re: Do Boro fancy taking Gibson back

Perhaps we might have ultimately got better value and a better player, had we shopped abroad, with a similar amount of money to spend. It would appear that despite our in-depth knowledge of players local to us, that it still doesn’t guarantee us acquiring a ‘good egg’. OK, it’s with hindsight, but i...
