Re: This Tarky is Keane's replacement nonsense

I must admit I thought Tarkowski was signed to take the place of Keane when he was to leave, unless he could get in the team ahead of Keane or Mee beforehand. Just in the same way Ings was signed to eventually take the place of Jay-Rod or Austin. Assumed it was the way we operated and didn't mind it...

Re: Bardsley tackle

I thought it should have been a red. Simply for the fact he jumped in.
I only got the ball (as obvious from image above) so yellow is an understandable decision.

Re: "Tarkowski brilliant again!"

Keane was great for us, obviously, but in his first season he was also the player involved when we conceded so many over that Christmas period (14/15 season) and was dropped in favour of Duff. A full season in the Championship turned him into the player he became IMO Tarkowski has the potential to b...

Re: Robbie Brady.

I do agree that Dyche's main concern is the work ethic and not the attacking intent. However, I also believe this isn't by choice, more out of necessity. If he goes for attack and it fails and the defence isn't in the habit of working hard, we lose. If he goes for defence, or 'framework' which seems...

I've always said, I'd be happy with a team too good for the Championship.
Good enough for the Prem is a different matter, but we can only build.

Re: Burnley can't compete financially..

It still not a ridiculous thing to say. If we want a player vs another club who WANT a player, chances are they would win a bidding war. We do offer some things more than financial benefit though - like the work ethic and fact some many players in recent years have improved so much so with us they a...

Re: The Rumour That Won't Go Away

Could very well be Dyche's Owen Coyle moment if he goes to Palace. How? If fans haven't learnt to deal with a manager leaving by now they never will. Benteke or Barnes? Brady or Zaha? You get my point. The only questions would be for Dyche to know if he has the same start he had at Burnley, would h...

Re: Sunderland want Arfield

He'll always be remembered as a hero to me.
Not just the goal against them, but against Leeds 2014.
My lad's first game, and many a time Scotty would pop up with a winner or late equaliser when he went on.
I think his time is definitely coming to an end though.

I'm a big fan of him.
He's the type of striker I'd see as 'ideal' for Burnley in the position we are in.
Why not add to the Irish contingent.

Re: Dycheball or tika taka

I'd like to see attacking football. Tika taka isn't always attacking. Dyche stays along the lines of 'it's a results industry' - and so far he has done that. True, it's not always pretty, but neither is losing. Dyche worked out the Championship and won it. He worked out how to stay up and did it. No...

Re: Ok as things stand right now - How will you vote?

I'm unsure. I did like JC, however I'm starting to think he's the type who is very intelligent and his ideas are great - in an ideal world, which it isn't - however if someone disagrees with him he won't start a slanging match, but will just irritate. And personally, I don't think him and Trump woul...

Re: Barnes

S h!t but good.

He's not the most skillfull but can scuff the ball in the back of the net.
Horrible to play against and best of all, scores important goals.

I love him.
His winner against Palace at home is my moment of the season

Re: Mr Dyche sorry but you are out of your depth

To say Arfield is league is just ridiculous. Hendrick is still a (relatively) young lad, with plenty of time to improve, especially for a central midfielder. Dyche himself is still a young manager, with time to improve. He will only learn and improve by being able to solve problems without destroyin...

Re: Where the season may go wrong.

Top 10?
I'll go back to one game at a time.

If I find us pushing for top 10 I'll enjoy that too.
But I won't be getting disappointed if we only just survive.
