For the third midweek in a row, we head to Lancashire and face Burnley in the Carabao Cup. Funny one really as the league is the priority, but obviously winning games is a good habit. Burnley are a proper club ~ always enjoy trips over there; although it’s not been a particularly happy hunting ground for us; the 2 defeats under Moyes were two of the most depressing games following Sunderland.
Burnley has the highest population to home attendance ratio in the country….
Whilst the town has been through the mill, (ironically in part, due to the demise of the mills), it’s a proper northern town. There are an amazing 191 listed buildings in Burnley.
Games at Turf Moor normally create a great atmosphere, whilst I’m sure we will travel in our usual healthy numbers, (1800??), I suspect the crowd will be in the region of 10-12’000 ?
Whilst I love Jack Ross, the Burnley Manager is class – aside from doing a decent job, he has the best voice in football….
Whilst Dyche deserves credit for his suit over tracksuit approach, there’s no contest with Jacks threads?
Not a right lot of famous people from Burnley, the pick is probably Eric Halsall…..
IN JACK WE TRUST
