I hope hes wrong to

" Burnley will get used to being tipped for relegation, and I am not about to buck the trend - but if there is one prediction I wish to get hopelessly wrong it is this one.

This is an old club with great tradition, heart and a wonderful atmosphere inside Turf Moor. The night when they marked their return to the Premier League after 33 years with Robbie Blake's winner against Manchester United in 2009 was a spine-tingling occasion. The old place shook - literally. - view external link (http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/28742392)

Trevor Steven writing in City AM also tipped us to finish 20th and be relegated but was not too complimentary.
"They're my old team but I fear for Burnley, who simply do not have as good a group of players as the rest of the division - not even those around them."
He tipped West Brom and Southampton to go down also.

Hope we prove them all wrong.

Thankfully, Steven was a better footballer than he is a writer.
