Why go for managers already in a job. There are plenty of good managers out there like Chris Hughton who are currently unemployed.

You can't blame them going for managers who are already at a club as all it takes is a phone call with a yes or no answer

If we are to go BIG as many fans want. Then let us go for the best, forget Big Sam and go for Martin O'Neil. What a coup that woul be, especially if the board let him have the necessary budget to get the players we need, who would surely be attracted by the chance to work with him.

The way Burnley keep approaching managers in contract at other clubs smacks of arrogance. Mackay won't be interested in leaving the fantastic job he's doing at Watford in the same way Lambert couldn't see the appeal either. Burnley need to understand that you are nit such a big club that you are going to draw managers like this away from where they are.

Cornwall - it amazes me how many people have mentioned this as if it is some way within the realms of possibility. Kind of marks a lot of Burnley fans out as being out-of-touch. Gloryhornet might have a point, but at least we are giving your club the opportunity to refuse us permission to speak to your manager. I'd say that is more polite than arrogant. Our clubs are almost identical in terms of support, but we are in a much healthier financial state. I'm sure MM will stay with you.

I don't think it smacks of arrogance,it smacks of incompetence. We do not have our own ground back yet despite spending a season in the top flight and making £14.4 million profit. Instead of paying what £3.5 m to get it back we prefer to keep paying rent. We are still training in 1950s state-of-the-art facilities and only now have decided to upgrade and have applied to Sec of State after council approval. (It is 2011 now!) Now we are told this club has gone down stronger, but I am told if it wasn't for the parachute payments we would be losing money hand over fist. At a time when we could have secured our long term future in the Prem by spending a bit more, we decide after Coyle to recruit a no hoper that was never really accepted by the Clarets fans. Why? Because he was cheap! Now we think, we can upset the applecart at other clubs by approaching managers who seem quite happy in what they are doing and have no interest in coming to some small town in Lancashire with a football club that for years has had a small town mentality prefering to play it safe instead of taking a calculated risk. We are reaping what we deserve.Midtable mediocrity!

Bang on TMP. I remember the match report, albeit one in the Daily Mail, after the Orient Game. Talked about complacency being the reasons we ended up in that mess. Well, while we're not in that mess now, the board are now once again looking pretty complacent about life.
