Clarke Carlisle has certainly been a busy bee recently and even during the summer break has been giving interviews, featuring on Sky TV games and progressing his University course on 'Sports Writing and Broadcasting'
He only recently appeared on Sky Sports discussing down the phone line his role at the PFA as Chairman, an interview which also led to comment on the Championship transfer market, especially Kevin Nolan's move from Newcastle to West Ham.
Carlisle also gave insight into Burnley's preparation for the new season and his thoughts on Eddie Howe.
We provide a quick synopsis of the key statements and comments below:
PFA Role & Transfers
It is an hectic time at the PFA this time of year and Carlisle confirmed a lot of the work was related to supporting players out of contract. He made the point that you only ever here about top end transfers stating that there are hundreds of players in the Football League who find themselves out of the game at this time of year.127 players in the Premier League alone are looking for new clubs and that has an effect on the lower leagues with many players dropping down a level.
Carlisle was also asked to comment on the recent high-profile transfer of Newcastle's Kevin Nolan to newly relegated, Championship club, West Ham. The controversy related to his proposed salary which according to some media reports will be £55,000/week. Carlisle was astounded by that figure if it was true and seemed staggered than any player in the Championship could be paid such high Premier League wages.
On Burnley's Pre-season Preparations
Carlisle admitted that being away from Turf Moor during the summer break, he is just as much in the dark as the fans regarding the club's targets but he did confirm that before the break Howe had said that there would be several new players coming in during the summer. This was something Carlisle relished since it would keep the rest of the squad on their toes.
Carlisle was asked whether Howe was good for the club and he was nothing but complimentary about his current gaffer. He thought Howe was a good pull for the club and was a top, up-and-coming manager. He felt though that Howe's first pre-season and first full season ahead would lay down a marker in the gaffer's career.
