Rumour Mill-Is it Oldham's Chris Taylor?

There have been reports that Burnley are interested in bringing 24 year old Oldham's Chris Taylor to Turf Moor. He is quite a versatile player and actually he primarily plays in midfield although he can obviously also play up front and was the Latics leading goal scorer last season in League 1 with 11 goals to his name.

He is a local lad born in Oldham and has played for no other club joining the team he supported as a lad in August 2005. He signed a contract extension in March 2009, one that would keep him at the club until 2012. In the last year of his contract then, Oldham may feel it is time to cash in on the player and it would be a bizarre twist of fate if it was Taylor lining up for the Clarets against his former club on Tuesday night in our pre-season clash at Boundary Park.

Speculation has been rife that our first new permanent signing of the summer is imminent with media reports that we could have a new player on the books as early as today (Monday 25th July). Well at the time of writing this article-10:15am-there has been no official announcement so we still eagerly await news.

Interesting link,sounds a promising player but again unproven at this level

When they are at the young end of the age scale, they are almost always going to be unproven...that's the skill a manager brings. That's exactly what Coyle did.

I think anything suggesting we are signing anyone at all is well wide of the mark now, Howe already explained on Clarets Player that he will be sitting down and further considering whether the players he had lined up need to change, I suggest this is a sensible approach, there is no rush now, the integrating into the team will come after a few games, We stand at a cross roads for Eddie Howe and JT. This is a fantastic opportunity to really make this their team, with 7 players gone and Patto and with a bit of luck Cort gone this is not just a "strengthen in a couple of key areas and build on the quality we have got"scenario, this is a blank piece of paper go build us a team, senario, this will test the balls and commitment to the manager from the board. If Eddie is given the funds then he has a fantastic opportunity to build something that he can honestly say was his from scratch, these opportunities don't come around so often, So in Eddie we trust!!! take your time lets get it right and see where the new journey takes us good luck Eddie show us what you got

What Coyle also did Mike was bring Guerrero, Penny, Van der Schaaf and Eckersley to the club amongst other failures. Hell that Taylor chap dont half look like someone famous. Who the hell is it?

Its not the quality i would be looking for but saying that i'm not at the Club on a daily basis, like hollins say great opportunity EH and JT to build there own squad. Hollins you seem to be pushing for Pato to be sold is there a reason for this and understand trying to get shut of Cort.

One year left on his contract. Sounds familiar.

Think he's contracted to the Club until 2013 so that blows the sounds familiar out of the water.
