If the 28th November hadn't been a kind day to Burnley FC over the years then today, the 29th, certainly has. In 1975, on a day when both Willie Morgan and Doug Collins were stretchered off, we were beaten 2-1 by Spurs at White Hart Lane, our only league defeat.

There have been some good wins and some big wins. In 1924 we beat Bury 4-0 with Tom Roberts bagging a hat trick and we repeated that scoreline last time out against Ipswich in 2011.

That 3-3 draw with Arsenal was the day I was born. Good to see we've only lost once on my birthday in the 47 years since!
