I don't know if anyone has seen that Burnley are subject to a supposed takeover bid?  One of the people involved was involved with all of the nonsense at Charlton recently 🤦‍♂️

Think I would be starting to worry a little if I was a Burnley supporter, according to BBC, the takeover bid is being "helped" by that well known friend of Bury, Wigan and Charlton, Chris Farnell. With a track record like his, haven't the EFL cottoned on to the connection between the events at the clubs he has been involved with in the past few years. 

news to me:)

Oh god, Chris Farnell. That's a name I hope we NEVER hear associated with Middlesbrough.

I’m sure the anti Gibson brigade would be delighted to have him involved with the Boro 🙄

Exactly, we all know he has his faults, but it seems there are so many people floating about that you just know don't actually give a monkey's about the actual clubs if they are able to make some cash out of it.

If I was a Burnley fan I'd be terrified having that anoos associated with my club. 

I read through about 100 pages of thread on the Charlton forum and what he put them through was unreal

no prob....good to see that I was not only one that had the thought. How do people like that even come close to meeting the "fit and proper" standards?. maybe they need to have some sort of system where a bond is required to be deposited with EFL rather than just show proof of available funds. Might deter some chancers if they thought there was a possibility of their money being taken away from them permanently

No idea.  He was actually banned from owning a football league club but got that ban overturned.  Obviously he isn't the money man, he never is, always seems to be representing people.  Maybe the Premier League will look at his history and tell him to bugger off.

Aye I read a fair bit of it. Some of the stuff he did was unbelievable. Seemed an absolute fool.

Dunno if this has already been posted somewhere else, but I just heard it on the radio...

Is anyone else looking forward to watching us play in the EFL Pizza Cup for the next 3 years?

Are you up for a slice of the action, or can they go and get stuffed (crust)?

Just as well the PL are getting rid of the Community Shield...it might have ended up as the Community Deep Dish.

 

I don't believe our U23's have qualified for this.

If this is the same person that tried to purchase Newcastle, can you imagine the reaction from their supporters if he is given the go-ahead at Derby...  can't remember exact reason he got blocked there, but surely not one rule for Prem and another for EFL

    • Agree with Sandy..  we are inconsistent but some of that is relative inexperience and hopefully that will decrease. Hopefully we can get a few more U23's out on loan to push them on a bit and fill the squad up for next year..  we have the makings of a good team and if we can get the final pieces of the jigsaw, then we will be there or thereabouts . Would also like to mention that discipline seems to have improved significantly, halfway through season and only one red card, which was rightly overturned and most of the yellows were for "proper" fouls rather than dissent or other daft stuff..  Sam will always be Sam but having watched Souness, Kennedy, Glover, Hammy, Boam and other nasty boys, he is very mild compared to them and I think all good teams have someone like him, so I think it should be acknowledged he is the best Egyptian we've had   
    • Think they are nailed on to stay up now that they have fewer injuries...  Ol Gravel Voice might be a walking sphincter but he gets the best out of his players (except against City). wouldn't be surprised if current bottom 3 went down, but if anyone else gets dragged in, most likely Brighton or Barcodes
    • Burnley have 19 points from just 10 scored goals. That’s some achievement. 10 more goals and they’ll probably avoid relegation. 
    • Good opening post I hope to see your thread again for Rotherham 🙂 1:Team and formation?  Exactly same side as he started at Nottingham Forrest as believe its best side we have baring Fletcher.  2: Is it good to change a winning team?  Nope it isn't unless player is really knackered  3: Will Morsy get another yellow card for just being Morsy?  Yeah he will  4: Can Britt follow up on an above par performance?  I think/hope as his contract is up we may see the best of Britt as he sure will wanna try earn biggest deal he can in the summer and we are his stage for showtime  5: Is Saville finally going to be what we bought him for.. A goal contributer? 4 goals and 4 assists so far... With Morsey it enables him to burst in the box with great effect so defiently be more of a goal scoring contribution from him  6: Iron Maiden or Def Leppard?  Iron Maiden 7: Our last handful of games this season are easy on paper .. If we keep within reach of the play off spots .. Can we push for it in the last 8-10 games? Yeah it's just our strength in depth see at LB dropping from Bola to Coulson is downgrade then at RB Dijksteel provides defensive steal remove him for Spence we are a lot worse defensively. Then in Midfield losing someone so Wing is required is downgrade. The reason Norwich are where they are is due to having two quality players in every position really.  8: Who is this mystery signing (winger who can play as a striker)?  It has got to be Grosicki don't think any other fit the words Warnock said.
