Brian Laws Denies Bust-Up with Players
Amid speculation that all is not well at Turf Moor with rumours of bust-ups between the manager and some players, Brian Laws has come out fighting today.
Speaking to the Official Site he said:
'I can't influence what is going on outside this club and certainly if people want to spread rumours like that there is nothing I can do about it, other than to say there has been no bust-up whatsoever.
'We've had the problem with Kevin McDonald and dealt with that, but there is no issue with Robbie Blake or anyone else. End of story.
'There's been nothing in the dressing room to suggest there's been a fall-out.
'I am disappointed to hear it, but it doesn't surprise me because at the moment we are in a position where we are easy targets.'
His statements will hopefully go some way to allaying the fears of Clarets fans that something is not quite right at the club at the moment.
Words are fine though, what Clarets fans desperately need to see is some evidence on the pitch that the team are finally pulling together as a unit after some woeful performances of late.
They have an ideal opportunity on Saturday in a game against Hull City at the KC Stadium. This is a vital six-pointer and a defeat would virtually ensure our relegation. The Tigers are just one place above us third from bottom but have three points more and a game in hand.
I think we could all take defeat if the team truly tried it's best. Any lacklustre performances though like those recently on show at home against Blackburn & Manchester City and Brian Laws could be under even more pressure. The media it seems are baying for blood and suggesting the gaffer's days could be numbered. He will have to stop giving them fuel for their fire!
