Been a decent display second half but fact is Pickford hasn’t had a serious save to make.

We’ve been pretty dreadful all over the pitch but Brady doesn’t offer anything. Wood, Lowton and Cork have been poor too.

Horrendous backlash let's in Walcott. Heaton saves.

Cork is so so absent in the middle. No messing about this summer, sign a better and more complete central midfielder as soon as possible.

Absolute rubbish. What is the point of Brady or Vidra or Hendrick? Not all their fault but please get rid !

This game has highlighted all that's lacking in this Burnley side - midfield weak, crossing from the wings inaccurate, Wood can't hold up the ball and our overall passing isn't crisp or accurate enough.

End of season kick about and it showed. Jbg and Brady no match for Mcneil or Hendrick. Lowton is not good enough and once again we missed Bardsley.

Need to get rid of quite a few. And let’s start shopping abroad please....top end Championship players are expensive and they don’t all make the step up! Garbage tonight all over the pitch. Let’s be much better v Arsenal please. We owe them.

Can't judge Vydra on that performance or people playing him in - he would have got at least a free kick on the edge of the box or penalty but Kavanagh was a homer all nightlong.

If we start next season with Hendrick, Westwood and Cork as our midfield, I predict we will be struggling near the bottom again.

A clear penalty that, Vydra is worth persevering with, a good 2nd half.

Spot on. Club needs to use this game as a warning for next season and act on it.

That flick and control by Vydra before he was pushed was quality. He's totally different to any other striker and we need to play him more next season and I'm sure he'll yield results.

Vydra needs minutes vs Arsenal. But long ball is something Arsenal struggle with so doubt he'll start.

Absolutely, he didn’t look sharp enough for me at times, but that flick was something else - the sort of flair we miss - and the sharpness will come with minutes on the pitch

We would have played far better had we needed to get a result, as the game against Chelsea showed.

Desperately need quality in central midfield . Cork is struggling now, however he’d be good backup. Hendrick is our new Utility man. Brady looked as if he was coming into the game in the second half and back to the pace then picked up yet another knock. Great cross for JBG chance. I think we should move out Lennon, one of Bardsley and Lowton, Crouch, Defour and Hart. We need at least 2 central midfield players if we move out Defour and a much more technically gifted centre forward in my opinion. Wood was terrible today for the most and Barnes was way off it, which highlighted our lack of options .

It's a very good job we didn't need to get a result either against City or Everton as we wouldn't have managed it. I don't think extra urgency was the key to getting a result. We need at least one better technical player in the midfield , on the wing and up front - end of.

A neutral in the pub said Burnley are on the beach and I couldn't disagree with him.

How did we manage to get all those points without those players we need then?

Exactly - but he won't get the minutes under Dyche

Back to basics when necessary. We’ve been on the back foot all season. He’ll get opportunities next season, hopefully with improved personnel around him in the squad

Spot on! We do what we need to do in order to assure survival. Rinse and repeat next season. Last season was an anomaly, everything went our way, this season we worked for survival.
