I wouldnt be happy as a fan if we had spent 20 million plus on him when he doesnt create chances or score goals. Likewise 20 million plus on Solanke, a striker that cant score. The two spaniard full backs that cost between them 35 million and have the sum of about 5 starts in the league last season between them. Nathaniel Clyne being paid 100k plus a week last season to basically get ripped a new one by McNeil and then not be seen again all season.

Happy how we are. Lets put the faith in the coaches and the plan we have in place. Who knows we may be discussing Benson being worth 40 million plus next pre season. Because like the above Bournemouth players he has been signed for his potential. The cost is irrelevant. A price tag doesnt guarantee a player is going to make it

Not sure I can believe this minutes per player line as a good enough reason for not bringing on Vydra for a single minute in the last 2 friendlies.
Thought it was a bit harsh embarrassing Vydra like that in front of the home fans - especially in the Nice game where we could have brought on Ian Woan and still been all over their awful defence.

The problem is it doesn't appear Dyche is happy with how we are, because he's actively searching for another player. And we can't afford to give him what he wants.

Off topic a little, but have you had a change of heart about things lately Cleveleys? Correct me if I'm wrong of course, but I seem to recall you being one of the biggest critics of Dyche and the transfer policy in recent times? Just wondering

We are well run (maybe a little too run), though we do walk the line a bit too often. But look where we are. Still in the Premiership. 2 England keepers and just sold one. One England Centre Half, one of the best prospects in the country in McNeil. A strike partnership like no other in the league in putting the fear of god into most centre back partnerships with the now added guile of Jay Rod. A left back that for me would get in every side in the league outside the top 5/6. Adequate back up in every position bar possibly one. We are a work in progress and always will be

Yes I have been. Change of tactic this year. In my hopes I would of always wished for us to bring through our own players. Become self sufficient if you will. Sell one every year or two and plough the money back in. It seems like there is now a plan in place, Dyches vision if you will. Not saying the names i mentioned in our u23s are going to make it but signing young players for lots of money doesnt guarantee success neither.

I have never been bothered about how much we spent. More the way we fixated on 1 player and would not look elsewhere, Lansbury, Dawson, Jay Rod (though we finally got him) etc.

I think apart from a midfielder our squad is more than good enough to finish mid table. If we can get Drinkwater or Brownhill then we'd be covered in all positions.

That's exactly what I would want us to be too. A club that develops young players, promotes them to the first team, sees some excel and sell one or two each year to invest in the next lot. I think we agree entirely there.

I'm just not as sure as you are yet that that's what our plan is. It's great we're improving the U23's but I'd like to see more money go into signing younger players to compete for the starting 11 immediately. I know it doesn't guarantee anything but it's about maximising our chances with our very limited budget for the level we're at.

The story is consistent with that. It says we had an interest this year, the player didn't want to leave France then, but we've retained an interest and the player is now open to moving on.

How firm our interest is, of course, the story doesn't say - and obviously it could all be made up.

The players will run through walls for Dyche, I bet our training sessions are as intense if not more so than a game. But the thing we are built on more than anything is loyalty. None of this one bad game and you are dropped. We are Burnley, we arent going to win every week, there is going to be a player every week that has a bad game. Do you want a squad of players that know they are 1 bad game away from being dropped. Or do you want a squad of players that know there manager believes in them, that they can mistakes and they wont be dropped immediately. If Hart was at any other club and was dropped he would of been in the press moaning like he did at City, Torino and West Ham. He didnt here because he knows we are a sum of all our parts.

We are not in a position to sign a player that is going to walk into our team and set the world alight. The existing players have not done badly enough to warrant being dropped for starters.

I dont know if you saw the recent post about Ozil and Kolasinic and the twitter thing doing the rounds about which player at which club would be their Kolasinic. Each club had one player or like Brighton no player that would stand up for a team player. For Burnley it just said All of them. We are a team of fighters that respect each other, therein is what our success is built on. Not young french lads no ones heard of but because they are worth 20 million must be a worldie

When you've got a round peg in a round hole why move it, it would just weaken us in two positions.

Have thought for some time that Dwight's strength is one of his more underrated qualities. He's very tough to knock off the ball, and I can think of plenty of central midfielders with less physical stature.

It may be a bit early for him, but I'm still of the view that at the top of a midfield 3 will prove to be his best position in time, and he's definitely an option for us there.

It all started when we played Spurs at home. Jon Walters was in the Sky studio and said he was a central midfielder.

Agreed. We've spent years hoping for a really good winger who can beat a man and cross accurately. Now we've finally got one, why would we want to move him?

I think Dyche is very careful with not running before we can run. When he came in it was all about the first 11. Over the last 2 years it has been the building up of the u23s. Next will be the u18s. I would hazard a guess we have already started with better scouting, relationships with parents. Think you only have to look at the kids Philiskirk took Poland. Many only 15 but obvs happy to go younger than usual because probably all the best 16/17 yr olds have been scooped up. Whats the point in getting average players that are just filling the spot. Hopefully we something in these younger kids and that is why we have took the risk

I don’t think the 7th place finish has anything to do with it.

In 16/17 we spent £45m
In 17/18 we spent £35m
In 18/19 we spent £33m

This season we’ve spent £6m. (If you add Jay Rods other £5m to next seasons budget).

This summer has been particularly poor if we don’t manage to get anyone in between now and tomorrow.

I don’t think people want the earth.

I dont disagree he could play top of a 3, but we need a ball winner in the middle, someone to stop the opposition walking through us. That isnt Dwight, and holding onto the ball is different from winning it.

Our needs are still the same
A speedy winger and a tough tackling cm
Both appear to be out of our reach finance wise and that is a serious problem

We could splash 30-40m in the last couple of days of this window,and we're still likely to be in the bottom 6,Newcastle have forked out 40m on that Brazilian striker,and despite this spending many pundits are tipping them for the drop,the fact is only half of the league can be relatively confident of PL status next season and beyond,for the rest it's a case of keeping their heads above water.

I'm sorry if that's boring to some so-called fans,but that's how it is.
Didnt they also spend 25 million on Almiron who would challenge Bolt over 100m but doesnt know how to score. Think his goal total was 0 before an injury did for his season

His assist tally was also zero. Or one. Regardless :lol:

I think we all agree we need another midfielder given the Defour situation, and McNeil's ability to play there in a 3 doesn't alter that, but I don't think any objective observer would accept for a second that opponents walk through us. We're known for precisely the opposite.

Sky Sports have just said that we’re open to letting Nahki Wells go on a season long loan.

Apparently West Brom, Birmingham and Bristol City are interested in taking him...

Cleveleys_claret wrote:I wouldnt be happy as a fan if we had spent 20 million plus on him when he doesnt create chances or score goals. Likewise 20 million plus on Solanke, a striker that cant score. The two spaniard full backs that cost between them 35 million and have the sum of about 5 starts in the league last season between them. Nathaniel Clyne being paid 100k plus a week last season to basically get ripped a new one by McNeil and then not be seen again all season.

Happy how we are. Lets put the faith in the coaches and the plan we have in place. Who knows we may be discussing Benson being worth 40 million plus next pre season. Because like the above Bournemouth players he has been signed for his potential. The cost is irrelevant. A price tag doesnt guarantee a player is going to make it

Interesting, if Vydra has put a transfer request in. I can't see us allowing both to leave.

I wouldn't scoff at this lad, he's electric and despite limited appearances last season due to injury, knows where the back of the net is

Presumably a season long loan for Nakhi Wells means that should we be relegated then he can play for us in the Championship next season, which appears to be his level. He is not suddenly going to improve over the course of the next season to become a Premier League player. Meanwhile I assume Vydra is still waiting on the platform for his train to arrive.

BFC is like a station from which there are only departures.

Why turn down 2.5m from Swansea, to then loan him out for the season when he would then be out of contract, make no sense.

If Bristol City really are interested in Wells, maybe he could be used as a bargaining chip to swing the Brownhill deal.

Hopefully...

Not as quick as he used to be. Noticeably so.
