Talks a lot of sense, it must have been a difficult year for him and his wife, an excellent ambassador for the club.

"The club is looking at the numbers and getting new players in" :shock:

Sixteen weeks premature! That’s four months!

At least Ben Mee has some confidence!

Dyche's tone is certainly alot less bullish than at the end of the season - so he is either comfortable the club are backing him, or he's given up hope.

Great piece from a great Burnley captain. Good to read his thoughts on his excellent post match interview at Man City too.

I was wondering about Olive the other day. Amazingly good news (huge understatement).

No words are too strong to describe the man that is Ben Mee. You look at some of the great captains we've had of late such as Tom and Michael Duff and you think "Follow that". Well, he has done.

Immense.

I put him along side Casper, Stevenson, James and Dobson, as one of my favourite players of all time. Ings is in there too. ;) Mee will be a legend.

Great call, vancouver. Yes, I'd rank Ben Mee alongside those 4 Clarets heroes.

How's it going for you in Vancouver? I hear that the wild fires are all along the west coast, at least as far north as Seattle.

Now that's a heart warming picture if ever I saw one.

The warmth and attentive maternal care from Mrs Mee is lovely.

All the very best to the lot of 'em.

Good to see the family doing well.
Hey Paul Sorry! I just saw your post....I'm only over a month late in responding.
It wasn't too bad in Vancouver we had maybe a week where the wind was bringing the smoke up from Washington and Oregon, It was like the old pea souper fogs we used to get in England only with the smell of smoke :(
