    The end of an era ?

    My man on the inside at Turf Moor tells me that Roy is retiring at the end of the season, and his replacement at Palace will be our Sean. No ifs, no buts, all done and dusted already, he's gone. Probably.

    Our fellow Burnley fans are openly turning on him.

    Time to go.

    Does not surprise me-at least they back their manager.

    Don’t include me in that BT. Dyche is still the right man in charge for me.

    Nor I , we need a unified change of direction in terms of playing style rather than a change of manager.

    Howe's running out of steam whilst SD is running out of ideas.

    It's a brutal business is the EPL.

    Should this come to pass, and I'm assured it will, there is an obvious move ahead for one of our players. Zaha has made no secret of his wish to leave Palace this summer, and with 50/70 million burning a hole in his pocket, Sean will have no problem persuading our board to let Dwight McNeil join him at Palace.

    Nothing stays the same sinkov, except our penchant for selling our young star players.

    Be a sad day when SD jumps on Do One Airlines...

    I'm always worried about Burnley,inevitable I suppose in view of our size and what has happened to a lot of our neighbours.I'm a little bit worried now in view of our current league position although I think we'll be ok come the end of the season.Norwich are gone,Aston Villa are poor now McGinn and Heaton are injured and Bournemouth are in freefall.I feel a bit sorry for Eddie because they have been crippled this season with injuries.

    Maybe Sean thinks his time is up,personally I hope he stays,but I see changes coming at the end of the season whatever happens.McNeil has to go for the sake of his career but in view of the current ridiculous market I would ask for quite a bit more than the rumoured 35 million.What the situation is with Gibson I have no idea but BT has intimated that he is off for 16 million.Wells will leave and,in view of his age,Bardsley will be released and Hart HAS to go somewhere.

    We will then be at a crossroads,50 million plus added to the Bank balance but we will need a new right back and the midfield needs sorting out.Do you want Sean to deal with that situation or a new manager.If it is a new Manager boy do we have to get the appointment right.Michael Duff is doing well at Cheltenham but he is inexperienced.You may be a sensible football man with a good background but can you spend the money we have on the right players,that is a huge responsibilty.Get it wrong and we are on the slide.

    I think I must enjoy the worry.Am I looking forward to the next game or am I dreading it,in all honesty I don't know.

    Well said Barrie.

    I agree with all that.
