Nah. Nothing to watch.

I'm waiting for the analytical break down of how City threw the game away.

I'll be very impressed if it's pointed out they didn't really show much fight for the game.

I always record it and watch Sunday morning while having breakfast.

I tend to fast forward past the talky bits so there's always the risk of missing some unbiased, insightful input from the likes of Shearer and Savage especially on games featuring Burnley but I'm usually willing to risk it.

Two of the better pundits on tonight in Jenas and Kilbane. It's to be expected City will be mentioned more than us but thank god I don't have to listen to Shearer spout his regular tripe.

Oh, and Sunderland were awful.

Sean Dyche shows how to celebrate a goal.

Quite fair I thought, the onus will always be on the title race but gave credit to us.

I was convinced that it was a hand ball from Trippier's cross in the first half.

How wrong can you be, it did hit his chest.

Fair enough ref.

I watched this match on American tv and they were pretty complimentary about Burnley (admittedly it also included gems such as Robbie mustoe telling me they're struggling to catch us in transition due to the medium blockers).

Graeme le Saux was the summariser and was one of the better ones I've heard.

To be fair to le saux he took some grief before kick off as the lads in front gave him a ceremonial ******* reject, but I was Wat hing the chat between jim and jim Beglin at half time and they were both agreeing that Burnley looked the better side.

Nbc made quite a scene to make sure they had a camera feed in the usual radio slots including a director and producer stood in close quarters and a steward to stop anyone getting anywhere near so can only presume it was a last minute thing

It was mentioned that he had some stick but seemed to take it in good humour.

In a slight change from the normal narrative they showed the terraced houses and hills over the Bob Lord and described it as few finer views in Premier League football.

Clever little play on words from young Gary at the end. >;)

Mentioned right at the end that it was a battling performance by Burnley.

They always say that though virtually every time.

I'm sure I heard Le Saux say 'City have had the majority of the ball with 58%, compared to 32% for Burnley'

My old bug bear of unnecessary strip changes, but when were blue shirts and white shorts deemed to colour clash with black/white striped shirts and black shorts?
