  • Points tally needed to stay up over the last five seasons: – 36 – 29 – 35 – 35 – 34 We currently have 15 points from 20 games. 35 points has been enough to stay up in four of the last five seasons, and currently there are SEVEN teams who have accrued less than one point per game, so it's likely that 35 will be enough again this year... Surely ANY decent, self-respecting manager would back themselves to accrue 20 points from the remaining 18 fixtures with the players we have in our squad. We don't need a firefighter appointment - if we go down that route again we'll be in exactly the same position in 12 months time as we are now, and there won't have been any forethought put in then either... appoint someone for the long-haul. A manager on a six-month contract wouldn't have any authority with the players either. New managers usually get a bounce if they're any good - look at Emery at Villa, Lopetegui at Wolves... same players, just a different, more posi...

  • Robert 276: I came here to say almost the same thing. David’s Ancelotti would be an exciting choice at any other time. Learned from the best. Young. Progressive. And absolutely no track record of managing a football club. Had we been mid table. Safe but underachieving, I’d say go for it. But something in me tells me Dyche is a more sensible choice in the here and now. He probably won’t be able to save us either but at least he’s not walking into an entirely new situation....

  • I also like the fact that when Burnley got relegated under Dyche, he brought them straight back up again. I used to go to Burnley’s training ground, to watch my stepson when he was playing academy football, and it was recognizable to me, that Dyche, definitely helped Burnley, build up some very good facilities and also very strong foundations, over the years. (I’m sure Vincent Kompany, would be the first person to acknowledge this?) He’s come up the hard way, he’s had to scrap and be pragmatic, to help keep Burnley in the mega rich EPL, and although I’m not sure, it would surprise me if Burnley never had the lowest wage bill in the league, except maybe for one or two teams, over the 5/6 years period that Dyche, had them punching massively above their weight? His points record on paper, isn’t impressive Kieran, but his record in keeping Burnley in the big league, was very, very impressive, and I don’t believe his team would have lasted even a year, if they hadn’t been ...

  • How would signing Arnautovic tie in with Bielsa’s appointment. I can’t see a 33 year old, who never seemed to run a lot even when younger, fit in with Bielsa’s philosophy. ...
