  1. Barton tends to flit between good and bad. Given what went down at Rangers he'll no doubt be wanting to apply himself more and leave a more positive impression behind as he really doesn't have much time left in his playing career. It helps that Barton respected Dyche & his methods, the 2 must still see eye to eye or he'd not have resigned for you. On Dyche, my opinion on him at least, he says the same thing at every interview because he seems to be trying to create an 'us' and 'them' type mindset. In his world he's always hard done by, never acknowledged and constantly overlooked. H
  2. Barton - he made a huge difference last season, certainly. We play 4-5-1 at home and have only 3 central midfielders, so certainly need cover; there are better players than Barton to be had, no doubt, but as cover he's a good signing. My only reservation is that for most of his career he's been a disruptive loose cannon. His Burnley year is definitely an exception. I think most of that is because of Sean Dyche's management style, but I wonder about the difference between being a key member of the team and a player-of-the-year contender, and being a substitute (which I think he will be).
  3. Did we though? I seem to recall Burnley being the better team by quite a distance and really ramping the pressure up on us in the second half. First half was 50/50. I believe we'll win on Boxing Day, I think we're better than Burnley in every area of the pitch now (albeit marginally). We've scored more than them, conceded less and tend to pass and keep the ball better than them. 0-2 Boro. Negredo & Forshaw. FWIW, I thought we (Burnley) were a bit lucky to get the point; we were on top the last 20 minutes or so, but then you'd expect that at a goal down at home. But to answ

  5. You haven't seen Burnley much in the past few years, then? Passion and togetherness is basically the "secret" of our success.
  6. To be fair to Barton, remembering the trophies Burnley have won is a good deal harder than remembering the trophies Middlesbrough have won. But what he actually said was that he wouldn't be going on an open top bus parade if Burnley finished second. He said no-one remembers second, he'd only be there if we won the league.

  8. In case you haven't heard, Gary's due to be guest of honour at Turf Moor on Saturday. It'll be his first time back at Turf Moor since his stroke. Link attached. http://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/sport/football/burnley_fc/news/11133868.Parkinson_to_attend_Burnley_s_clash_with_Middlesbrough/
