    If Burnley beat Man City...

    Being an Aussie and knowing very little about Burnley's local rivalry, can anyone post what their reaction would be to a Burnley win against Man City in two rounds' time? Of course we'd all be jubilant if we beat City, but would it gift the EPL title to Liverpool? What's the reaction to be from Burnley supporters if Liverpool win the title? What's the reaction if Burnley are the ones that also stymie the quadruple? I'd love that in some way, but would feel for Man City? From what I know, as long as it's not gifting Blackburn we are happy. Please get me up to date on the teams I'm supposed to despise (too strong a word?).

    I used to have a soft spot for City but not any more.

    Teams like City have made the Prem uncompetitive. They are able to buy practically any player or manager in the world and if I were a City fan any success would feel hollow.

    The sooner one of the "big" clubs goes belly up the better - but I'm not holding my breath.

    I have a bit more time for Liverpool - but not much.

    Burnley v Man City is a true David v Goliath fixture and whenever we get a result in these type of games it gives us a real boost.

    I'm not in the least bit interested whether City or Liverpool win the title but I am passionate about my club.

    Come on Burnley! (starting at Chelsea)

    I could not care a flying fxxx at a rolling doughnut as to who wins the title. Our results against Chelsea City Everton and Arsenal are all that matters to me.

    Money may buy you the best players in the world but when your manager goes on TV and complains that they cannot even sell their home allocation of seat tickets for a Champions League Quarter Final there is an issue.

    There are 3 divisions in the EPL.The Top 6,the bottom 6 and the ones in the middle.Last year we did really well to win the middle division but this year we might just be able to squeeze in to that division.In my opinion we are doing extraordinarily well but to progress we would probably need to be taken over by a billionaire and the majority of our supporters would be very unhappy if that happened.

    .

    if we beat MC....i'd be looking at what they did wrong - imaginings like sunbathing or looking at supercar magazines... when they should've been playing football....and if The Reds won he title....it's because they had the likes of The Beatles, The Liver birds and Shipping trade....so every now and again... have to be given a chance to puff up their chest - in remembrance of that notability.

    Haven't we beaten the reigning champions in each of our last 4 EPL seasons? Manure 1-0 (Blake!), Man City 1-0 (Boyd) and Chelsea away 3-2? And we drew with City last season. If Dwight's on fire, we have at least a chance. City have lost to Newcastle and Palace this season remember. UTC

    One or two individuals might have a prefence Oz, but I don't think Burnley fans in general will give a FF whether City or Liverpool win it. I would imagine that United are the most disliked, they certainly used to be anyway.

    You are already booked to show your arse in a Woolworths window in South Africa after a comment you made about a result, sounds like you are an exhibitionist
