In the Frame: It looks like Dyche!

In the Frame: It looks like Dyche!

Former Watford boss, Sean Dyche has been offered the Burnley job according to the Lancashire Telegraph.

The local paper understands he is considering the offer over this weekend and is set to be unveiled as Eddie Howe`s successor next week.

Dyche would appear to be the favourite after heading a three-man shortlist. It is thought Falkirk gaffer Steven Pressley and St Johnstone boss Steve Lomas were also in the running.

This announcement next week if true could be a potential diaappointment for Burnley fans after strong rumours broke yesterday that the club were considering an ambitious move for high profile and successful Blackpool manager, Ian Holloway. Joint chairmen John Banaszkiewicz and Mike Garlick though are thought to favour Sean Dyche.

The 41 year old was a defender during his playing career and was on the books of Chesterfield, Bristol City, Luton Town (loan), Millwall, Watford and finally Northampton Town before hanging up his boots.

Dyche rejoined Watford as youth team coachin 2007 and became the Hornets assistant manager in July 2009 after Malky Mackay was appointed manager. Following Mackay's decision to join Cardiff City in June 2011, Dyche took over the reins.

Watford finished 11th in the Championship, their highest league finish since the 2007-08 season and clocked up 64 points whch was higher than anything Mackay had achieved. Sadly though Dyche's face didn't fit when the club ownership changed and he was sacked in July 2012 to be replcaed five days later by Gianfranco Zola.

He has kept himself busy since by joining the England national under-21 football team in September 2012 as a temporary member of their backroom staff

Vote in our poll whether you would like Dyche or not. I have gone for not sure. At least there is some Championsip experience there but if they have really elected him over Holloway then folk are bound to be disappointed I suspect. Again I would view this as a not particularly ambitious appointment if true.

Would be happy with either Dyche or Holloway, after the Brian Laws era I think we should learn from our haste to be critical. We should afford the new manager the same welcome as Howe got and save the reception Laws got for managers down the road.

What an absolute nightmare appointment this would be who the hell would vote yes for Dyche ? Why or why have we not gone and pulled out the stops for Holloway when he is sending all the signals that he wants away from Bloomfield Road and this could happen by activating his compensation clause of £500,000.00 A missed opportunity if ever there was one
