The Club Does Not Have A Clue-Eagles,Mears Off!!

The Club Does Not Have A Clue-Eagles,Mears Off!!

Well I think our chances of getting promotion now are well and truly over before the season has even begun

It is a catalogue of failures:

1. Failure to sign Jack Cork

2. Failure to sign any permanent player so far this summer, the only club in the Championship

3. Failure to keep key players at the club with news today that both Eagles and Mears want away with the club accepting a measly,pathetic £3 million for both of them and letting them speak to Bolton. Yes,Bolton and Owen Coyle!!

It is clear that this club has absolutely no respect for Burnley fans and their wishes.

It is clear they have no ambition

It is clear they are never going to take calculated risks

It is clear they will always lose out

Just as well they don't have an 'Early Bird' period for Season Tickets in August because I can tell them now they would not have got my money and I suspect after this pathetic showing, many more Clarets fans money besides.

There has to be a change in the Board and a change now. I have no confidence in them whatsoever.

The man I feel sorry for is Daz Bentley, the club haven't even got the decency to keep their own Media Manager in the loop. Only this morning, he was telling Clarets fans on Twitter that we should chill and not believe the tosh in the papers. The club are so unprofessional and amateurish, they even let their media man fall on his own sword!

OMG the only way I see us going now is League 1. What the hell is happening at our beloved club, I am to angry to even say anymore just unbloody believable

You are not the only one,believe me and still some are trying to defend this bunch of amateurs saying their hands were tied FFS!! They were tied because they offer peanuts, show no ambition and then wonder why players want to leave!!

TFM This critical wheres it coming from???

It states in the article that they both did not want to be here. It is better to get something for them now than lose them for nothing next year.

Oh look, we are beating Torquay 1-0. How exceptional. We can look forward to more games like this in the future the way we are going. It is all the boards fault. Eagles and Mears are our two best players and they have allowed them to run into the last year on each of their contracts. They should be doing everything they can for them to stay. Get rid of the wage cap, offer them a deal they cant refuse. We have surely freed up a bit of wage seeing as we axed FIVE/SIX players from last year. Show the players a bit of ambition, show them that we are moving in the right direction, make things more appealing to them. And now Paterson is not in the squad. I bet he is over at Portsmouth discussing a contract. Is this all some kind of joke, are we trying to fail as a football club ?

ssc41, it is not necessarily better to get something for them now. What if they help us get into the premiership, thats £45 million or something, not £3 million. I knew this was going to happen, when you get relegated and dont go straight back up players lose faith. And no wonder they have lost faith. We lost Jack Cork, we havnt completed a permanent deal and we are five players down from last season. Im actually surprised at Chris Eagles. The guy turned down Rangers, the Scottish Champions where he could have played Champions League football for us last season and now he wants to leave. But what can you expect with a board that has a backward attitude and no will to succeed or please the fans.
