Coyle's Better Beastly News

Brian Jensen suffered a dead leg in the game against Barnsley in the Carling Cup defeat at Oakwell least Tuesday night.He had to be stretchered off after being clattered by Darren Moore with Diego Penny taking over in goal.

After beastly news today surrounding the injury to Paterson who was also stretchered off in the same game, Clarets fans would have been hoping for some good news on Jensen's injury and we appear to now be getting it.

Jensen, an ever-present in league games this season could keep his 100% record intact this Saturday against Spurs at White Hart Lane. He is responding well to treatment and seems to be winning his injury battle improving all the time.

Brian Jensen looks to be winning his fight to extend his ever-present league record after being stretchered off in the defeat at Oakwell.

Owen Coyle speaking to the Official Site about the Beast's injury has made some encouraging noises saying:

'He has a severely bruised leg but Brian, being the lad he is, I'm sure will make himself available and I would hope he will be fit for selection. When Darren Moore clatters into you it's going to be painful as Darren is a big powerful lad. It's badly bruised but it's significantly better than it was the other night and hopefully that will continue to the extent that he's fit and available for Saturday.'

Sounds promising and we need some good news after the Pato and McCann injuries, with both players now facing up to 3 months out of action.

Looks hopeful but I just wonder if we will be looking for a new keeper come January 10. Diego Penny by all accounts is not looking confident and one just wonders if he would be a capable deputy in the top flight

Good news - Have to say I think we would feel his loss more than Pato's.
Claretdale
Agree there Claretdale, I would prefer to lose Pato for 3 months than the Beast. I must admit I was hoping they would bring in another Goal Keeper during the close season, as I hate to dis a BFC player but for Penny wasn't up to it in the Championship never mind the Premier League
sheclaret
I dont know how we can really say what standard Penny is up too. He had a shocker at SWFC last season but then we didnt see him again. I thought he was OK at Hartlepool and had no chance with either of the goals on Tuesday. The only way we can really know if he is good enough is to play him, but i agree that would be a risk.
Claretdale
2 such differant keepers, beast looks confident and looks the part, penny looks like poor teams van der sar, no confidence and that transmits to the team and fans, imvho we need a replacement, or at very least a 3rd keeper,
palsdad
come on beast we need you 4 permier league penny is a pupet so we will have no cchancew of staying up need u 4 totteham are else we will get killed a tootemham

Altogether BEAST!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've seen plenty of 'keepers over the years. Alan Stevenson was my favourite. Roger Hansbury wasn't. The Beast is near the top of the list.

Well there were hints that we had been looking at third-string keepers but nowt came of the rumours. I feel sorry for Penny he sounds like a confidence player. The trouble is to get confidence you need to play a few consecutive games and do well and if he's not up to it, it could wreck our Prem League survival chances. Very surprised he didnt start against Barnsley and just hope I am not reading too much into things
turfmanphil
The Beast near the top of the list, I had never really thought of that. I always thought the best keeper I had seen on Turf was Marlon, particularly for his first couple of years with us. I liked Crichton too, think he saved us on more than one occasion! I think sometimes its hard to judge players because we have been through the leagues. We may feel these players we have seen were our best, but would they have been able to do it had we been at a higher level?
Claretdale
I think it would be very hard for Penny to get picked ahead of Beast, Beast is playing his gloves off, its the best I've seen him last season and so far hes doing a pretty damn good job his. I'm just surprised Denmark haven't called him up!

Best Burnley keeper in your life time = ? not sure, worst keeper and best transfer out = Peter Mellor!
VinRogue
I am sure I remember a game at Turf Moor with Mellor in goal when a damn dog got on the pitch like they always used to in the 60s/70s! It gave the referee, players and police the run around before Mellor dived on it and let it slip through his fingers! No change there then!! ;-) [Edited by turfmanphil]
turfmanphil
Your post made me chuckle tmp as I too recall the dogs, but also the fact that my old man used to call Mellor a big girls blouse on a good day! What he called him on a bad day is not for this board!!
