Assume it’s a bit of a trick question as I’ve added up 4 goalkeepers out of the 8.
I’ve got 7 too....

Racking my brain for the 8th. Thought it might be Michael Keane but after checking he did score a couple for us in the Premier League. It’s going to be someone who we had on loan and hardly played I’m guessing

Pretty sure I've got all 8, but will wait and see if I've made a mistake when people put on here as cant access the video with the answer on my work laptop

That was my mistake. Gambled on two outfield players one came up trumps the other didn’t.

I got to seven. Didn’t even realise the eighth had a full England cap!

After checking Wikipedia I do think there is a ninth which has been missed out. He was one I stumped for but wasn’t part of the answer.

Tyler might be kicking himself too because he didn't get the ninth - Jon Flanagan

I am pretty sure it was on back of his performance for Burnley against Accrington in the cup...the manager was in the crowd and Flanagan was outstanding. The rest is history as they say and he is now widely regarded as the best right back in the world.

I remember Tyler.doing commentary on ITV many years back but it would.be interesting to know how many games involving us he has commentated on with Sky. Not many at all I believe.

I think he did the Sherpa Van final with Andy Gray in the very early days of satellite TV.

Possibly not with Sky but he does commentate on the games that go out at 3pm on a Saturday around the world so will have done more than just with Sky

The United game all the programmes were sold so asked him if I could have a look at his.

The home game against Chelsea at the start of 2014/15 was live on Sky. Tyler wasn’t the commentator but on the week’s Premier League highlights programme he was. So he covers a lot more than we might think.

He was definitely commentator for the home game v Sheffield Wednesday on New Year’s Day 1983 on the Granada highlights. He was, at the time, the regular Yorkshire TV commentator. I think he also did Burnley v Reading in 1981/82.

He did the Sherpa Van final with Andy Gray which was one of the first times (if not the first) that they’d worked together.

Ok can I go one further, I still can't get the video with the answers but can think of 15 players who played for Burnley in my time (all divisions) and England who didn't score for Burnley.....here goes
Mc Donald
Woods
Cowans
Tuert
Pickering
Dixon
Gascoigne
Robinson
Heaton
Pope
Hart
Flanagan
Chalobah
Crouch
Drinkwater

Should I get out more?
I'm sure I must have missed some?

They had to have played in the Premier League for us so it is the bottom eight you have (Tyler didn't have Flanagan) plus Trippier.

Thanks Tony...would have put my last dollar on Trippier having scored perhaps not in the Premier though
