Relegation is imminent

Post by burnley007 » Sat Mar 16, 2019 4:50 pm

We look desperate, hopeless and totally devoid of any ideas.
We look the pure definition of a relegation side.

You'll probably be hammered for this thread, but I am afraid I agree with you. We look shot, not sure IF we can beat Cardiff that will pick up points anywhere else. The summer, whatever division we are in needs changes top to bottom.

What kind of a prat would sign Hart and Crouch this season and that's it and let go of Vokes mid-season, Lestoh Boy Dyche... I blame the board, looks like corruption to me and what came in on the Olympiacos coach through customs? LaBA, Burnley fans excluded from their own shirt even, whatever money's talking , it's talking down Burnley.

**** poor.

We’ve just made things very difficult for ourselves and it looks like we’re relying on Cardiff to do worse than us for the remainder of the season

I said down to my Dad after Boxing Day.

We then pulled away but are now four defeats on the trot and playing just as poorly as pre-Xmas.

Cardiff have more bottle than this team and I think they’ll beat us at Turf Moor. Our first half the season has done for us, in my opinion.

I thought Dyche was being quite kind taking Wood off and bringing Crouch on and making the game 10/10 he offers nothing,poor from Brady at the end oh well.

Totally agree Pstotto, the second half was crying out for Vokesy. Crouch ran round like a headless chicken. No point in bringing on Vydra in the 89th minute. Give him some game time.
The team needs freshening up. Devoid of ideas against 10 men.

Could see it coming all afternoon. Dycheball with no other plan. Giving Vydra injury time is complete ludicrous. We aren’t good enough to stay up but we might get stupidly lucky because of Cardiff. I’m not going to type it fully but for me Dyche O........

Looking like we are the team that gets sucked into the bottom three at this time of the season and gets relegated. If we cannot beat a 10 man team on the pitch for over 85 minutes we deserve to go down

Let's relax - Cardiff have some very difficult games this month. Having said that, I see what Warnock has done on meagre resources, and what Dyche has done and Dyche has to go at the end of the season. Our football is Hoof, Hoof , Hoof.

Towards the end of the season a team with nothing to play for will give Cardiff the points they need to stay up for the season they have had to endure,losing the striker in dreadful circumstances ....you heard it here first we are gone.

We have become stale, predictable and the things we were so good at last season, have gone. We're conceding soft, sloppy, late and goals at critical times. It's difficult to see where we'll pick up the, probably, required two more wins to stay up on current form. Very disappointed tonight.

Back to the championship. The squad is ageing and stale, with players who are too similar and lacking creativity. The manager is a one trick pony and has reached the end of the road. If we were any other club Dyche wouldn’t be here by now.

I’m not convinced we even train. Watching today would certainly make you wonder what we do train, it certainly isn’t crossing or corners or passing ten yards to another claret and blue shirt.

It’s a money league to an extent but IF we go down instead of Cardiff it will sum up a poor season on so many levels.

After three years building in this league, we shouldn’t be finishing below Cardiff and a manager who (I think) has never succeeded at keeping a team in this league before.

I’m hopeful we can make it but it’ll be by the skin of our teeth and if we do, we MUST learn from our mistakes of the summer and winter windows. You cannot stand still in this league.

Just looked at Cardiff’s remaining fixtures. Their run in is as hard as ours. I think if we beat them at home we will just about stay up.
I’m gutted we lost today to 10 men, but that’s done now, so onto the next game.

Some of the hard of learning around me in thE BL were giving Wood dogs abuse and absolutely creaming themselves at the arrival of the Podcast One. I attribute it to a reflection of how far we’ve sunk. Horrendous tactics week in, week out.

In my opinion a point would have been ok but to lose it at the death will knock our confidence no end the problem is you could sense it happening.I suppose you still have to live in hope but I'm starting to fear the worst

It wasn't the board that played those tactics or made those substitutions today.
Today was all Dyches fault. Bringing his mate Crouch on was laughable Morgan can't run get Vydra running running behind him instead for last 20 minutes.
Too play long ball in that weather is a joke.
8 decent games in over a year isn't a good manager
