  1. Claude Puel on LCFCTV Tonight

    Wouldn't it be hilarious if he became the best manager we've had in decades. You know one that makes us a decent force in the Prem for several seasons on the trot, not just a one season amazing hit and one that wins the odd cup. One that brings through young talent....... Unlikely, but amusing based on some comments on here.
  2. Claude Puel - Contender

  3. Leeds Post Match Thread

    Bit of perspective, Leeds played their second team tonight. I think 10 changes..... Needless to say good result and to quip.......we go Marching on together....
  4. Thoughts on Dyche?

    Burnley can / have played good football this season though. When did Leicester last score a goal with 24 passes? We have spent millions and millions, won the league and still a bunch of Championship standard players can dink it around better than us when appropriate and throw their body's on the line when needed. That last sentence is why we are 18th and they are 7th...... I say given a choice between other names mentioned tonight, SD is a good solid option, will make us very very organised and most importantly allow us to sign lower grade players (£) and get greater performances from them. That said he won't be chosen and we will go for a foreign name, continue our delusion of grandeur and in 8 months time.......
  5. Thoughts on Dyche?

    Oh get a grip please. WITH (mostly) CHAMPIONSHIP PLAYERS, Dyche has won at Chelsea, won at Everton, drawn at Liverpool and Spurs. You're reaffirming each time the exact reason why I disagree with you. Everything ultimately about Burnley this season is about his management, it's not him having all the tools and just being a negative nelly with them... It's like you're having a pop at a one armed boxer about his fighting skills....
  6. Thoughts on Dyche?

    With a chunk of irony in our mini "quote on quote" the BBC Sport website have put a complete article out there tonight effectively saying Burnley have not been jammy away from home. Overall they are performing badly in "stats" unlike a top team. However, throw in great preparation, real bravery, consistency and excellent strike rate in front of goal, Burnley go right to the top. All elements driven by the Manager and his coaching/preparation. Irony....
  7. Thoughts on Dyche?

    I think the buggiest debate has been mentioned already. Not what he's done/doing, but the what if....... Can he manage so called bigger names / ego's etc. Can he step up to a different group of players, probably collectively more talented than those at Burnley, but bigger wages, much bigger and some with equal size ego's. Further still some having a Premiership winners medal on the mantelpiece?
  8. Thoughts on Dyche?

    Forgot they also won at Chelsea as well. By definition the implication of your comments are they play more negatively than us, play less football and have been lucky. Certainly elements of your point might be the case, but...... .....Considering he's got a whole team of players we'd think "beneath us" says something to still get all those results. I think you need a little perspective when being disingenuous about their play/set up. Many others putting things into perspective, think he's working wonders with mainly championship players. They're hardly going to play like Brazil are they? Even if their goal at Everton could have been from a Brazil team.....
  9. Thoughts on Dyche?

    And drew away at Liverpool, Spurs and won at Everton.....scoring their goal with a move involving something like 26 passes.
  10. Next City Manager?

    Only got the necessary badges to coach U21 level. Shame as like a sort of legend for us, even for just one season.
  11. Next City Manager?

    I met Dyche in the posh boxes at the Kasabian gig on the Sunday night (KP). Got the obligatory picture and I remember when I asked him would he like to manage a bigger club than Burnley one day, he was very diplomatic in his first response, but did end the conversation with "you never know, that's football for you". He said it whilst deliberately looking up and around the room implying one day at a club like ours. He's a massive Kasabian fan, so maybe be its meant to be
  12. Next City Manager?

    Dyche is extremely well organised, even down to individual training plans, preparation and sport science per player. He is clearly very well organised on the pitch with tactics and his team can play football. Dare I ask any doubters to watch the Burnley goal in their win at Everton a few weeks back. Something like 26 passes before scoring. Quality move. The guy's "market value" as a Manager is high and rising all the time.. Lives locally, so why wouldn't he work with us? His ambition matches ours.....
  13. West Brom (H) Match Thread

    City playing like a team too scared to win, West Brom playing like they're too scared to lose. = stalemate
  14. George Thomas

    Play the kid Saturday. Sometimes chucking in a talented kid works. Look at Winks, just 4 first team starts and now in the England team. Nothing to lose if Ndidi is injured.
  15. is ndidi injured

    Stick George Thomas in the middle to run his nuts off/attack and tell Iborra to not go over the half way line. sorted.
