View Full Version : Not trying to be negative but...

I am starting to think we will be relegated and it's a real shame as the players have tried hard and done well in most games! The non backing of the manager in the transfer market looks to have done us.

So, with this in mind, out of the current squad, who do you think we would be at risk of losing when we go down? If we can keep the core of this squad together i think we could have a real go at bouncing back up.

Let's hold on and see if the fat lady sings first me thinks.

Ings is the only player out of contract in the summer.

The most important person to keep hold of is Dyche.

If he stays then so will the players, it's that simple.

Marney, Duff, Wallace and Reid are out of contract.

If we do go down I'm sure one or two others would attract interest. The obvious being Trippier, Shackell and possibly Vokes, especially if Bournemouth get promoted!

Marney is the only one worth keeping from that bunch.

Duff and Reid are ready for the knackers yard.

Wallace - time to replace him with younger, fresher legs.

Duff hasn't looked ready for the knackers yard when I've seen him this season.

Even though we've got better players, I'd be surprised if things don't go similar to last time in this regard. Ings leaves this summer obviously, but I'd expect us to be able to hold on to the rest for one Championship season and lose them after that if we're still in the Championship in summer 2016.

Resign Marney and Duff, obviously.

Everyone under contract for next season is either really good or someone Dyche rates even though they don't seem really good, btw. That's nice

I'd still move him on, either into a defensive coaching role or too another club.

Means Kevin Long could actually get some match time,when he recovers from his knee injury , or get another younger defender in.

Ings is obviously gone regardless of whether Burnley stay up or not.

Trippier will get snapped up by a Premier League club for sure. George Boyd is good enough for the PL but may or may not get bought by another team if ye go down.

I fancy Heaton to be a very good back up for a PL club, and possibly Dean Marney as a depth midfielder for a mid-table club like Stoke or Newcastle looking for some midfield cover should injuries hit.

A terrible shame that the board did not choose to invest in another central midfielder and a proper left-back. It will hurt especially bad over the next few matches. If Burnley can get three points out of the next four matches I will be very surprised.

And no mention of corners yet.

10-03-2015, 07:57 AM
And not going to ground easy. We've only had two pens all season, Vokesy are you listening?

Good Post, Not trying to be Negative, but i am going to be Negative,well its not exactly being Positive.;D

"I'd still move him on, either into a defensive coaching role or too another club.

That would be good - moving on a good player just to get someone else some game time.
