Burnley should move on and leave Tarkowski be at Brentford

Only one place to start and that is with Brentford’s James Tarkowski. Not since Pierre van Hooijdonk famously went AWOL for ‘broken promises’ has a footballer gone so publicly on strike. A £1.7 million bid came in, a paltry figure, but this is Burnley – that is how we operate. No matter if Dyche offered a quid, he should have played, and it shows a weak character that only seems to ever surface in football. You never see the...

5 players that Burnley should target in the transfer window

Post-match against Ipswich Town, Sean Dyche started fielding questions regarding transfers into Burnley Football Club this January window. Unsurprisingly, the 44-year-old was very coy with any dealings as his month-long game of transfer tennis with journalists begins. The debate is; do you give a man who has already spent more money than any Burnley manager in history the funds to bolster his squad?? My answer is yes. Burnley are...

5 things Burnley boss Sean Dyche needs to change this weekend

The weather was rubbish, Burnley were rubbish, and the only thing that could have made it worse was if Sean Dyche was stood on the touchline with a brolly in hand. As I sat high in the James Hargreaves Stand, I was out of reach of the incessant rain that poured into Turf Moor. Sean Dyche was not so lucky; he took a soaking from the rain and waves off sub sections of Burnley supporters after the game. It was a bad day at the office for...

Who should partner Andre Gray in attack for Burnley?

Where would Burnley be this season without Andre Gray and his goals??? The striker has been superb leading the line for the Clarets with his explosive style, work rate and unerring ability to take chances early. A striker shooting on site is a dying art in the modern game and Gray is a huge advocate of this trait. The money paid for him now seems a snip – he covers every blade of grass and some fans are lauding him as a better...

Why Burnley must replace Frank McParland before January

It was a strange time in the summer at Turf Moor; the club identified targets and secured their signatures almost as quickly. Players such as Joey Barton, Matt Lowton, Rouwen Hennings and Andre Gray were brought in efficiently and with minimal fuss. Many reasons can be attributed to this, but the main protagonist behind the Claret curtain was Frank McParland – the arrival of Gray and Barton in particular can be pinned on the...

Burnley flying high without getting into “second gear”

It happened again, but this time it shouldn’t have done. “We know how to win” said manager Sean Dyche after Burnley came away with back-to-back derby wins from Ewood Park. Many fans want to stick the proverbial knife into the old enemy, giving it a sharp twist. The manner of the victory was enough, and when you don’t deserve it, it tastes that much sweeter. That lot down the road have had it too good, for too long. The tide has turned...
