    This could be the season Barcelona finish a lowly 5th outside the Champions League places. In the 90s and early 00s they were prone to the odd bad season and finishing outside the top 3.

    Bournemouth had something like the 11th highest net spend in Europe over a 4/5 year period. They had very rich owners and spent a lot of money. They wasted most of it and went down.

    Dyche maybe got found out in 1 game, but any Bournemouth fan would swap places with Burnley in a heartbeat. Even Eddie Howe did.
    That depends, a lot of those clubs arenít good enough to achieve any real success, therefore Iím sure their fans would rather enjoy decent football while staying up for a few seasons, than kick punt and bully their way to the odd 3 points to stay in the league by the skin of their teeth year on year. Burnley have zero plan other than to get as big a profit as possible come the end of each season.

    Also - net spend is all well and good - but £150m over 5 years is nothing really when you think of what they are bringing in revenues wise. Donít need rich owners down south to pay that money. Burnley couldíve spent that in 1 window and broke even over the same period, they chose profits over improving their squad. Iíve little doubt those sides will be swapping places come the end of the season and good riddance to them.

    I think Barcelona fans had better brace themselves for a miserable few years. The debt will cripple them and the team already looks like the empty husk of what it was.

    Burnley qualified for the Europa League only a couple of seasons ago. Beat Aberdeen then got knocked out by Olympiacos in the play off. First time they achieved that in 51 years.

    4 years ago, and arguably with one of the lowest points totals to have done it. Never had a positive goal difference any year in the league since promotion, never scored more than 45 goals in a season. Literally a team of 6ft+ brutes.

    Bournemouth have been loss making for four years in a row. If any English side is going to do a Gretna my money would be on them.

    Burnley is just a small town club punching above their weight.

    Good on them. Maybe if everyone in the town went to turf Moor rather than watch Man u on tv they could push on more.

    Yep fully agree. It's a bit harsh to criticise Burnley for anything IMO.

    Yup, Burnley loves it's club and has the biggest support per head of population of any English club. If Hibs enjoyed the same the same intensity of support as Burnley, average crowds would be somewhere around 50,000.

    Burnley have always been a well run club in financial terms and also well managed. It would have been easy to fall into the trap that the likes of Bradford City, Blackpool, and Hull fell into and overspent. Bradford City did stay in the PL for two seasons but wrecked the club financially in the process and plummeted down to tier three.

    Sometimes clubs that come up from the championship have to walk before they can run, we've seen all too many trying to play expansive football with the big boys and end up yoyoing up and down all the time Norwick, Bournemouth, W Brom etc. Burnley have taken the pragmatic approach and Dyche has made them a stuffy hard to beat team who'll win a few and get a few draws enough to keep them in the league, maybe not the prettiest of football but ask the Burnley fans where they'd rather be playing their football most seasons.

    All the same, thereís a middle ground. They must have millions burning a hole in their pockets. Youíd think when Dyche leaves they might change the formula a bit. If I was a burnley fan Iíd want to see something different.

    Itís Pumas horrible new template with the two horizontal lines between the club name in block font, quite widespread Marseille, Dortmund, also Man City 3rd strip I think

    Brozovic such a fantastic player, does everything. Croatia really do have a tremendous midfield, Brozovic Perisic and Modric all playing here tonight. Still 0-0, Inter on top.
