Try crepes in the town centre accross from Costa coffee. It is a brilliant place for food (in my opinion) and you can still get a beer in there too. I had a full English in there other week and it's the best I've had in Burnley

Re: Congratulations John McGreal

It was cotterills first season and he inherited a shambles of a defence ( what was left of it) . To go and get him on a free was great business and although we didn't score many, I'm convinced he was one of the main reasons for staying up as he shored up that defence no end.

Re: Best Burnley come back you have seen ?

Ones that springs to my mind are the 2 games against Preston. 3-2 in 06/07 I think it was, we went 1-0 up then 1-2 down before winning it 3-2. A few years later the 4-3 against Preston when we were 1-3 down at home. The 2002 win at deepdale was pretty special too.
