If our older posters could remember a FA 5th round Cup Match .Altogether there five matches played between the two clubs to decide the winners .

At that time Burnley were a very powerful club to reckon with . They excelled both on home and away matches .At a certain season they scored 103 goals .

It is beyond my comprehension why some of our dear fans should wear the masks of sure relegation . No ball has been kicked yet .We should await that better days to dawn .Burnley have not splashed lavishly to the tune from 79 m to 100 million pounds .Our accounting machine shows that our total expenditure has hardly crossed six million pounds.

We are proud that we have a super Manager .He has acquired the best affordable players , Being young and versatile they will progress within the shortest possible time to match the millionaire players .

I am optimistic for a better future .

Dave we should employ you as Dyche's assistant, or speech-writer. Really enjoy reading your posts.

Well said Dave, far too many doom and gloom merchants about. I hope you'll be watching the match live on Monday. You have been given the task of spreading the Burnley gospel on the island.

Next time I go to Mauritius I expect there to be a sea of Claret & Blue throughout the island, without a Man Utd shirt in sight and no-one asking if you are wearing a Villa shirt...

Spread the word.

UTC !!

davemanu2000...That was one of the most remarkable FA Cup games in our illustrious history. As a tiddler I saw the first game at Turf Moor with my Dad, it was actually a 4th Round tie in 1955/56. Peter McKay scored for us and I have a recollection of Parsons(?), a tiny right winger scoring for Chelsea.

Then we go to Stamford Bridge for the replay and draw 1-1 again. As a young lad I then thought the next game would be back at Turf Moor but my Dad put me right and we drew again, this time 2-2 at St.Andrews.

At this point I thought we were hard done by as we had to travel to Highbury for the fourth game which we drew 0-0 before a fifth game just two days later at White Hart Lane finally losing 2-0.

The five games were played in front of over 160,000 people.

I was too young to remember the scores .At that time there were no TV or even morning newspapers , I had to wait the arrival of evening newspaper at 5 p.m. to take cognizance of the results .Although it is long dated about 69 years ,I still remember very vividly about these matches .
However thanks to the learned poster of bringing all facts to light.
