The Laws at Burnley & The Life of Brian!

The Laws at Burnley & The Life of Brian!

Brian Laws, confirmed as the new maanger of Burnley FC today has been speaking to the Official Site about his new appointment

'I am sure there are a lot of Burnley fans asking, 'why Brian Laws?' Well let me tell you, I have followed Burnley since I was 16-years-old, when I joined the club.I have had an affinity with this club for a long time and I am really honoured to have the privilege of managing Burnley Football Club in the Premier League. This is a fantastic opportunity. Owen Coyle has done a fantastic job at this club. Nobody can ever take that away and I wouldn't want to even try.But at this moment in time he has dropped the baton and we want to pick it up with the supporters and drive on over the finishing line, which means we will have stayed in the Premier League.That is our drive and ambition and I will do everything in my power to achieve that because this great club is where it should be.'

Some excellent words there Brian and I guess all we have to ask is can we now bring Marcus Tudgay to Turf Moor and how was James O'Connor last time you spoke to him?!! ;-)

His words impressed me too tmf. I'm beginning to warm...

I am warming to him!! lol ;-) Will see what they say at news conference on Sky Sports in 15 minutes (3:30pm)

I'm at uni and can't watch the bloody tele because we have no signal. I think I might try to raid my mates room....

Wow! Just like Waddle. 'I'll do everything to get Burnley out of this league.' Didn't think that he was hinting at possible relegation that year (he even missed that!) He is talking the talk. Let's see if he can walk the walk or do a Coyle!

Saying the right things on Sky Sports News at the moment. Kilby didn't say much though!!!!
13/01/2010 15:35:00
I thought that he sounded very good on Sky Sports News. I hope that he matches it. Kilby didn't sound so impressive. Is it a possible stop-gap appointment?
13/01/2010 15:43:00
Yep my sentiments exactly HC, I am hoping and praying he turns out to be the great asset he sounds like he could be. Words though and now time for actions since they do tend to speak louder

Who will Laws' first purchase be? I wonder if anyone has any thoughts. Will he go for someone from Wednesday? Will Mears and Eagles be allowed to go?
13/01/2010 16:03:00
I see that elsewhere you think that it might be Tudgay turfmanphil. No thoughts about a 'keeper?
13/01/2010 16:11:00
It just occured to me,I think Eagles was on loan at Shef Wed under Laws was he not? Laws might be able to keep him at Turf Moor if the relationship was good. Let's cherry pick the Owls players who would we want if any?
