Morecambe a Sell Out!
Our Carling Cup second round clash against League 2 Morecambe at the Globe Arena on Tuesday night (24th August) is a sell out with the Clarets fans taking up all their 1780 ticket allocation. 1400 will be housed in the Bay Radio Stand and 380 in the Peter McGuigan Stand.
Penny signs for Peruvian Club
It has been confirmed that Diego Penny who was released from his contract earlier this week has been successful in signing for a new club after returning to his native Peru. He will now be based in the City of Chiclayo and will play in the Primera División Peruana for Juan Aurich. This is the same league he played in for Coronel Bolognesi; the club he played for before signing for the Clarets. We wish him well.
Youth International Call-Ups
Clarets 17 year old midfielder, David Lynch has been called up to play for the Republic of Ireland under-18 squad. He will travel to the Czech Republic for a tournament that will last between the 22nd to the 28th August. Lynch is a second year scholar in the youth team and will be hoping to feature in the matches against Ukraine and the host nation in Group B
Shay McCartan , a youth striker in his first year at the club has also been training with the Northern Ireland under-17 squad.
Laws dismisses interest in Cardiff striker, Ross McCormack
The speculation linking the Clarets with a move for Cardiff striker, Ross McCormack, appears to be short of the mark following comments from Brian Laws who is reported as saying:
'I have got great belief in the players we have here and there are goals in them. We have just got to make sure we supply them with the right ammunition.
'If we were actually giving them the right kind of service and they're not scoring then that would be a cause for concern and setting the alarm bells ringing and I would probably be looking to bring somebody else in.
'But as it stands I'm not looking to do anything immediately.
'I can't stop those kind of rumours. There are a lot of people whose names will be thrown around and we will be used as a sounding board to see if they can create interest.'
Those Damned Vuvuzelas!
You may have missed the club announcement a few weeks ago that Burnley FC had thankfully banned the use of those, obnoxious loud Vuvuzela horns first heard drowning out the South Africa 2010 World Cup games on TV. They will not be heard at Turf Moor that`s for sure. Yippee!
The official reason for banning them is due to safety concerns and I concur with that! I mean if I had found someone blowing one, I would have taken it off him and stuck it up his ****!!
There is a possibility though that we may have to endure the din on some of our away visits. I am not aware that all Championship clubs have banned them but do know that at least Ipswich (was it quiet then?), Cardiff and Leicester have done so.
The amazing thing about these blessed horns is that, love them or hate them they have now entered into English culture and are already enjoying recognition following news of the word`s arrival into the new edition of the Oxford Dictionary of English. Interestingly there is also a new word in there that could describe someone who might be inclined to blow one:
