LaLiga. Some good points in your post. I agree about the mess we made last summer. Moving on to the Development squad, we get very few making th first team which is concerning. Leeds have a good youth set up and always appear to bring good numbers through their system, interestingly my Leeds friend mentioned that they turned Vydra down as he didn't interview very well and didn't buy into or embrace what they wanted to achieve so they pulled the plug.

And probably more relevant Vydra wanted £50k a week !(according to the Leeds newspapers)

I cannot believe how some fans have turned on Sean Dyche this season
Except they haven't!

Not on the match days anyway really, where it matters. Dyche even praised the fans last week for their patience.

If he was at any other club there'd be vitriol in the stands and protests outside the boardroom!

You have to realise that forums aren't real life.

No one coming in this window - get used to it. Why would they? Anyone useful will get better offers from others. We may be one of the richest clubs in the world but (rightly in my opinion) we can't mortgage the future existence of the club for a desperate attempt to rescue this lost season. What happened to all those posts about what a well run club we are compared to that lot down the road, Notlob, etc? Now we want to throw money around lie a drunken sailor in a failing attempt to reach the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Dyche's first promotion season we did what we had to do - pay off the debt, build Gawthorpe. Second time around I thought we started to get it right with players like Brady, Cork ad Defour. Last two windows have been terrible - though I think the jury is still out on Gibson and Vydra. That's what has killed us.

So here we are, aging squad, bottom 3, relegation clauses and one of the lower salary structures in the league, and probably more importantly, something has changed in this season. The passion is not there, Can't put my finger on it but something is not right and we need to clean house to get back to ourselves. You can't clean house in a January window - too late.

The PL is only for the super rich. We don't qualify. It's an unfair competition. I don't buy all this "best league in the world? crap when only 6 teams out of 20 can realistically have a chance to win. Hopefully we can spend the occasional season or two in there to keep the coffers full.

Having said all that, I hope like hell we win today and it's the start of another unbeaten run - there's always hope...but sometimes, it's the hope that kills you.
Great post it is a crap league but the amount of teams you say have a chance of winning it 6?,think it's half that,a bit like the Scottish Premier league with only One team in it....the Premier league is all about greed it's not even a competition anymore.

If the rumour has any truth associated with it then I can't see that being an end to it. Killmarnock have been quite clear that they would like Jones to play out the rest of the season for them. If he does sign a pre contract with Rangers the Killmarnock fans would be sitting on his shoulders like a ton of lead. Signing for a direct competitor would make them doubt his commitment to their cause and each and every playing blip could receive vocal commentary from the stands. It could make playing for them very difficult and diminish his effectiveness for them, decreasing the value of having him for the next 6 months.

I suspect that Rangers would predict this and in the event of a pre-contract being signed they would highlight it and offer Killmarnock a trvial amount to make the signing permanent in this window. We didn't really want to offer you a couple of hundred grand, but it is in the best interest of everyone concerned. Or they might be very happy for their competitor to have a potentially disaffected player on their books for the rest of the season.

I pointed out in another post that we could bring him in as cover for Dwight in the next couple of matches and send him back to Killmarnock on loan before the window ends and ahead of their Rangers match on the 23rd. Providng that we do have any interest in him, a potential pre-contract offer from Rangers could work in our favour, because it would make an offer of 500 grand or so from any English club very attractive to Killmarnock and their fans.

With Brady out for a few matches, Lennon scheduled to come back before the seasone ends and Dwight coming through strongly we possibly don't need a big and expensive winger signing in this window. If a first team player can offer us a lot over the long term then we should consider it, but a quality development player who could provide us with cover for the next couple of games might be enough.

I'm not entirely sure, but Jones might have a finger injury at the moment. Not that it has stopped him from playing.

Sums the Scottish game up,Rangers and Celtic nab any young talent from the provincial clubs,and then they moan about the competitiveness of the league.

It'll be interesting to see how Jones fares playing under massive expectation every week,many others have flopped when they have joined either of the old firm.

Sean Dyche says costs limit Burnley to Championship players

https://www.skysports.com/football/news ... ip-players" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I would say that the partial answer to that conundrum is to spend more time identifying players that other clubs don't want or players that are looking to move on.

That certainly doesn't mean going after inferior players or players that aren't what we need. It simply means that an equal emphasis should be placed on identifying the players that clubs are likely to sell and which players would we like to bring in.

The same goes for identifying clubs that are in a position which would see them welcome a cash injection as opposed to clubs that don't need the money at a particular time.

If you focus your efforts solely on the latter when forming a short list then you will always pay a hefty price or waste a lot of time chasing after unrealistic targets. Going after players that aren't standing next to the exit door is always going to be more difficult and cosly than going after players with one foot out of the exit door.

Another solution is to go after players that are almost ready, players that could step up given a bit of time.

We could target a player that is definitely ready and miss out. The next window comes around and we do the same. This process continues until we finally get our man at a hefty price. And then we sit back and think, we could have brought in another player for a lot less money and in the time we have been busy chasing our tails he could have developed into the player we need.

Don’t know why anyone thinks it will affect our chances of staying up. Any signing will sit on the bench until the start of next season until they are ‘Dyche fit’

We arent limited to championship players at all. Complete nonsense.

There are leagues in 6 continents. But we choose to shop only in the league below the one we play in.

Championship prices are so high it’s honeslty worth gambling on foreign players even though we don’t have the scouting.

Tiresome interview from Dyche which regurgitates the same guff of the last three years.

It also ignores stuff like Jack Cork costing 60% of a Vydra for example.

Or Bardsley costing half a Charlie Taylor.

Must say I'm not sure what Dyche is trying to achieve when he gives interviews like that. All he's doing is presenting a negative image of the club to everyone concerned.

He focuses, again, on transfer fees. We keep being told they aren't really the problem for us and it is wages. I fully get the issue about wages and get why we want to keep them under control. But transfer fees are a total red herring. For one, our accounts suggest we have the cash to afford them, and for two they an investment. The market is only going on one direction and as we've seen with previous players for whom we've paid biggish money, the chances are we'll more than get our money back if for any reason we have to sell.

Dyche isn't selling a vision of the club there to anyone. He's as good as saying we are living on borrowed time. There is no reason why that should be the case.

........" Its not like we're going to magic up £50m to go and sign who we want "........Sean Dyche said.

So, Sean, we didn't make close on £60m net profit last year, then ?

Very poor, as Socrates posts, from the manager, again. Yet more evidence that, when it comes to these matters, Dyche is merely a mouthpiece for the Board.

Absolutely agree with this.

We continue to peddle this ‘little ‘ol Burnley’ at our detriment, and without a doubt it does us great damage in signing players.

I’m sick and tired of it. We know our limitations, and we all want our club to be run in a sensible manner. But there’s a difference between being sensible, and overly cautious to the point we’re our own worst enemy.

Paul, £30m Operating Profit + £30m profit on sale of Keane and Gray. It's all there debated on the Football Magic Money Tree thread (around post#250 I think).

In terms of the Cash situation we carried forward a balance of £20m from the previous financial year and at least £40m of last year's net profit can be added to that figure.

His Cotterill-esk interviews are absolutely dire. I have said for ages that we need building up not the other way round.

I know Owen Coyle gets a lot of stick but the one thing he did right was his passion and getting across positive vibes about the club to the media. He was always building us up and was a breath of fresh air at times!

The £50 million figure is disingenuous too.

Nobody is asking for us to sign a player for £50 million.

Is he saying that because we can’t spend £50 million on a player we can’t spend .... I don’t know .... £15 or £20 million on one?

The more I read this same guff again and again the more I am forced to think that finances are not the problem. It is the lack of imagination and knowledge of the scouting and football management team.

The definition of madness is doing the same thing again and again and expecting different outcomes. As the window opens and we’re linked with yet another West Brom player I cannot but help at ruminate on that.

Also ........... Dyche’s £50 million talk is a bit stupid when Bournemouth have just paid £19 million for a centre-forward on the fringes of the England squad, signed from a Premier League club.

But Solanke isn’t the type of player we go for. Which only serves to bolster the various points people have made on this thread.

In fairness. I would happily not have gone for Solanke at that price. Although Abraham on the other hand might have been worth pursuing.

Hopefuly these players are the new benchmark though. Because if its sub £20m for Young, capped English forwards then there is no way the likes of Rodriguez should be commanding more. (Not that I think he would be the right signing either).

I probably wouldn’t have gone for Solanke either as it happens. But his fee, and the proposed Abraham fee, make a nonsense of the £50 million talk.

Agree.

And as above. We should be selling our club in the market. Not knocking it down.

We have turned:

Trippier
Keane
Heaton
Pope
Cork
Ings
Rodriguez
Tarkowski

Into England players

We have developed Sam Vokes into a player who scored a goal to take Wales into a European Semi Final.

We turned Charlie Austin into a fantastic striker who but for injuries would have played for England and a top 6 club.

We have taken a small town championship club into Europe.

We have appointed Sean Dyche and Eddie Howe who have both gone on to be good premier league managers and have developed many players.

These are the messages we should be sending out. That we are the right club for ambitious young players, or older ones with a point to prove.

The message we send out is ********. Its a typical small town Burnley message.

And as above. We should be selling our club in the market. Not knocking it down.

We have turned:

Trippier
Keane
Heaton
Pope
Cork
Ings
Rodriguez
Tarkowski

Into England players

We have developed Sam Vokes into a player who scored a goal to take Wales into a European Semi Final.

We turned Charlie Austin into a fantastic striker who but for injuries would have played for England and a top 6 club.

We have taken a small town championship club into Europe.

We have appointed Sean Dyche and Eddie Howe who have both gone on to be good premier league managers and have developed many players.

These are the messages we should be sending out. That we are the right club for ambitious young players, or older ones with a point to prove.

The message we send out is ********. Its a typical small town Burnley message.
And what about Ashley Barnes? Not bad for a 400k striker! :)

He’s great. I love him.

But should we not aim for better? Or have a younger option lined up?

Absolutely spot on with that, best post I've seen in a long, long time.

It's not even on the same planet as the negative, already-beaten dross that Dyche and the club try to sell us. No bloody wonder out recruitment is shocking.

So bloody frustrating.

Dont get me wrong Dyche has worked wonders. And to be where we are is amazing. But that doesnt mean we couldnt and shouldnt continue to aim to progress.

We want to have our cake and eat it is the problem.

We want British-based players of a proven history and temperament but we don't want to pay the inflated fees that these players command. We either need to broaden our player criteria or up the fees, it's entirely a problem of our own making.

"We don't want to pay the inflated fees that these players command"

But we expect to receive them when a player is sold or decides to move on ;)

For arguments sake I’m going to say that we offer for another stoke player as that’s a club we did two deals with not two long ago, rumour has is McLean is in the radar, which for me would be a no, but I’d be surprised if Joe Allen’s name doesn’t get linked with us this window.

Just to make it more humerous I’d add Jake Livermore to the WBA list with Matt Phillips link too.

Think Dyche is basically admitting defeat to who he wants in this window because he knows he won't get them due to.........

As per that thread.

Clearly we need top drawer players. But there are more than the odd gem at that level. Austin, Vardy, Antonio, Hart, Smalling, Bolasie, Deeney must be worth over £100m between them even now.

Doesnt mean we can't have a strategy that looks at both markets. Our current strategy is almost entirely limited to championship players.

Heaton
Pope
Lowton
Tarkowski
Westwood
Hendrick
Brady
JBG
Wood
Barnes
Vokes
Vydra
Taylor
Bardsley
Walters
Wells
Ward
Legdzins
Lindeegard
Gibson

All signed from the championship. Thats 20 of our registered 25 players!!!

Isn't the vast majority of Bournemouth's squad from the championship as well?
