Everyone it seems apart from the board and management at Burnley Football Club. I mean it's not as if we are going to get caught out by not strengthening the midfield and then suffering injuries when we are unable to sign a player, is it? You know, like when we failed to sign a back up for Marney, who was injured the very next game and led to Arfield trying to fill his position. And we can all remember how that season ended.....

You're saying that players don't want improved contracts if other players are paid a lot more.
If that was the case we'd still be giving the likes of Ben Mee £20k a week.

This is the only positive to come from this. Hopefully it swells the coffers and frees up wages to allow us to sign one or two quality players.

A lot younger than Heaton, so bringing the age of the squad down. Isn't that what you keep saying we should be doing?

Probably because our first choice is injured and second choice is shite.

Should have kept his place according to the ones I've asked, many who go on every home game. He's only young so could easily be another player on the conveyor belt. Only one friendly left though if he signs in time would hope he gets a chance.

If you think that Wells, Vydra, McNeil have the same status at the club as Heaton, then think again. A fair comparison would be that if Heaton gets a disproportionate pay rise, then Mee, Tarkowski, Barnes would be knocking at the manager's door demanding the same.

I'm talking about this Tom Heaton situation. He's a massive player for us. In the bracket of players like Aguero, Pogba, Salah, Kane are for their clubs.

What I'm saying is clubs offering huge wages to get those players to stay will NOT start other players demanding the same. That does not happen.

Obviously lesser players getting big wages will. Or if a club starts buying world class players.

An example of that is Man Utd in the early 2000's. The likes of Veron coming in of course Keane, Giggs, Beckham etc would want the same. But Chadwick wouldn't demand the same as those because that would be stupid.

Is Heaton worth £200k per week which is essentially what he will cost us if we turned down £8m and let him run out his contract out. When you add the fact that we have a Goalkeeper of Pope's quality to come in plus a player of Harts experience and quality to be backup then in my opinion that £200k weekly wage could be much better spent by adding a couple of quality outfield players with probably money left over to invest in a good young player or two

Leeds were top with BPF in goal - they then signed Casilla in January - dropped BPF, finished third and lost in the play offs (losing 10 out of their last 22)

For those using the Hart-Heaton method in their arguments - Peacock-Farrell must be a world beater........ ;)

If, for example using random numbers, Burnley's senior players are told that this year's cap is £40k per week and no-one's getting more than that and new signings aren't getting more than that. So Heaton, Pope, Mee, Tarkowski, Westwood, Cork, Wood, Barnes, possibly one or two of the others as well, are on much of a muchness at £40k. And then Heaton is suddenly offered £60k. Do you say that none of the other top players would want any more? You don't think the abolition of the informal cap would upset anyone?

Why use Wells , Vydra and McNeil as examples?

Look at what Tom has achieved here, look at the length he's been here, look at his contribution in games alone.
Those players cant bang in Sean's door, however when it comes to say Mee wanting a new deal, he can argue he deserves the same as the previous guy who's been "offered what he wanted" also any incoming players might think "I want what hes on".
We have a ceiling for a reason, no one goes above it. If you want more whilst here or ask for more before getting here, you wont be signing a deal.

In a similar tone, how would your boss react if you said I want the most wages in the company or I'm off.

Losing Heaton isn't ideal but probably the right thing to do. Allowing him to go to Villa is absolutely mad.

Its conceivable that he makes saves which keep them up. It's conceivable that they stay up at our expense. For that reason alone we should refuse to sell him. If that makes him unhappy so be it. The risks are huge.

If it was to a mid table team or abroad I'd have no qualms. But why are we selling him to a relegation rival when we don't have to.

I have faith in Dyche and its not the first time I've questioned this kind of decision but I'm really struggling with this one.

Bearing in mind that he's only played 23 league games in the last two years, what are you saying the club should have done? Sold him two years ago, or given him a long contract with a big pay rise while he was injured, or forced him to sign a new contract that he doesn't want?

If we were to lose one player from our main defenders I’m glad Tom was the sacrificial lamb, given his age, his contract situation and the fact that he has a very capable and much younger understudy who might well have been first choice anyway.

Literally anything other than allow him to go to a rival.

I'd rather Heaton was on the bench all season for us than starting for villa.

If a club has a wage cap that possibly 10 players are at then they've given themselves massive problems.

I'd hope the club only offer 80/85% of what the actual cap is.

Mee aside those listed haven't achieved anyway near what Tom has here, plus the little fact he's club captain and made such a monumental impact last season.

Burnley do have massive problems. We're competing in a league where money is all and we're doing it with less money than anyone else playing. It's a massive problem that the current management have been able to solve so far, and I think the best way to keep solving the problems is to let the current management carry on the way they are.

Most of those listed are crucial players who have either recently signed or will soon be due for a new contract. Even if they're only on 85% of the cap, then when the cap goes up, so does 85% of it. Break the cap for one, and there will be a knock-on effect.

How do you know it's what he wants?

I can't imagine his first thought was "I want to go to villa no matter what" - It's just what its come to.

My only concern in all of this, is the suggestions within this thread that maybe we need the £8m to free up the purse strings for a midfielder. That simply cannot be right but if it was then serious questions need asking about the club.

For me it is thanks Tom, but we have a lad that got us to 7th in the Premier League and a bloke with 70 plus England caps as well as the chance, it seems, to sign an up and coming international keeper for Bill Mercer to work with.

Can't see the problem with any of that myself.

Sad to see him go. Mad to see him go to Villa.
But if he wasn't going to sign a contract what can the club really do.

Time will tell. Who'd have thought when we signed him we would have Joe Hart and an England squad goalkeeper and still be disappointed to see him go.

In a side built round team spirit, it might just matter if the captain isn't happy at the club.

I can't imagine his first thought was "I want to go to villa no matter what" - It's just what its come to.

You mean like we did when we took the option to extend Defour's contract?

Of course it’s what he wants.
Pay rise / big signing on fee (he’s never had one in his career to date)
Better and longer contract than we offered
New challenge
Playing in front of 40k fans
And maybe stuff that happened last season where he feels let down by Dyche.

He’s been the best goalkeeper we’ve ever had in my lifetime and one of my favourite players ever.
But Trippier was my favourite and he left
Danny Ings was brilliant - he left.
Keane was absolute class - he left.
Robbie Blake left
Glen Little left
Trevor Steven left
Etc etc

It’s what happens

At least the club don’t seem to be tweeting as much today so I’m not getting any “nervy notifications” :shock:

There is a difference between the club being able to extend Dufour's contract and he doesn't have a say in it, and the club being able to offer Heaton a new contract but it's up to him whether he accepts.

When you add the fact that we have a Goalkeeper of Pope's quality to come in plus a player of Harts experience and quality to be backup then in my opinion that £200k weekly wage could be much better spent by adding a couple of quality outfield players with probably money left over to invest in a good young player or two


If Pope gets injured, it'll cost a lot more than that.
