There are plenty of smaller clubs who play more entertaining football than Burnley in all divisions here and across Europe. I am not expecting Burnley to be Real Madrid but I don't have a lot of time for Managers like Dyche who are decades out of date with their tactics.Some credit to Burnley and Dyche, to keep a town of seventy thousand people in the premier League for five years and even achieving European football is little short of miraculous. Ok the footy might not be pretty but has been effective over several seasons and the man, the team and the town have to cut their cloth to suit their means. I worked In Burnley in the seventies and watched them frequently , found them keen and Knowledgeable football fans. One last thing in Burnley unlike most Lancashire towns you only see claret shirts not rags and dippers tops. I wish them well and hope they stay up.
I thought Dyche was embarrassing during the League Cup match earlier this season. He could be heard clearly ranting and raving on the touchline, screaming abuse at officials, demanding that his players lumped the ball long. He was like Mike Bassett Football Manager.
City have had some truly terrible sides over the decades but we have never played like Burnley (apart perhaps from the Pearce era) Stadiums would be empty (without Covid) if all teams played like Burnley. I don't like Mourhino for the same reasons. I think Burnley fans (who I agree are very loyal) deserve better.
