Thread: Which players should we keep in Summer?

  1. #1

    Which players should we keep in Summer?

    I am interested to see fans on this messageboard think which are players we should keep in the summer to compete in the Championship next season.

    I have alluded to this before but this is my spin on it:

    With relegation almost certain for the Clarets in season 2023/4, it is still possible to take some positives from what has been from a Burnley fan’s perspective a terribly torrid season.

    Players like Trafford, O’Shea, Vitinho, Ekdal, Beyer, Al-Dakhil, Odobert, Amdouni, Ramsey, Foster & Koleosho will all have surely benefitted from a season of playing in the English Premier League. If the Clarets can retain them all at Turf Moor for the 2024/5 campaign, the group will undoubtedly form the nucleus of a very effective and title challenging Championship side.

    It is also worth remembering the Clarets will still have under contract Berge, Costelloe, Delcroix, Twine, McNally, Weghorst, Muric, Vigouroux, Dodgson, Egan Riley, Mellon, Benson, Zaroury, Brownhill, Cullen, JBG, Massengo & Obafemi. With that amount of “wiggle room” it cannot be all doom & gloom – can it?

    Having noted how Vincent Kompany has operated in the past, I assume Bailey Peacock Farrell, Charlie Taylor, Connor Roberts, Jack Cork, Jay Rodriguez, Bruun Larsen, Mike Tresor, Samuel Bastien, Darko Churlinov have or will be permanently leaving the building.

    It will, however, be interesting to see what the future will hold for the loan pairing of Lorenz Assignon and Maxime Esteve. I hope we can at least secure Assignon on a 4-year contract, he looks like the real deal to me.

    I think retained a s be

    Trafford
    Taylor will leave i think
    Beyer keep
    O Shea keep
    Ekdal keep
    Dakhil keep
    Cullen keep
    Koleosho keep
    Odebert keep
    Amdouni keep
    Foster keep
    Berge keep
    Brownhilll will leave ( Iím disappointed in him tbh )
    Massengo - we havenít played him but I assume in that he had rave reviews in France and was playing the likes of PSG he had to be reasonable
    Benson - for impact
    Mellon - needs chance

    I would still like a physical powerhouse midfielder even going down a level

    I assume Bailey Peacock Farrell, Josh Brownhill, Charlie Taylor, Connor Roberts, Wout Weghorst, Jack Cork, Jay Rodriguez, Bruun Larsen, Mike Tresor, Samuel Bastien, Darko Churlinov will all go.

    We should get decent fees for Brownhill, Roberts & Weghorst.

    It remains to be seem if Twine, Egan Riley, McNally, Benson & Zaroury will all be sold.

    It's a crying shame Kompany has not got a clue how to negotiate the exits.

    It may be the case that if Kompany is staying, who of our players will want to remain at Burnley. It looked during that last two matches the majority of our players just could not careless and do not appear to want to fight for their places.

    That was my impression VC apart from JayRod and Cullen when they were brought on in the 90th minute losing 3-0 LOL.

    Well don't watch them then, chuck your ST in the bin, I'm sure you can pick up a half ST at Blackburn quite cheap, you might enjoy that more.
