You may have missed these little snippets of Clarets news so we thought we should bring you up to date:
Dyche Not Manager of the Month
The Clarets are currently riding high in the Championship in third spot after 5 league games. It is perhaps not surprising then that Sean Dyche would be one of the nominations for the Sky Bet Championship manager of the month award for August.
Clarets fans seem to have mixed feelings about these awards, so many times Burnley managers in the past have picked up these accolades only to hit a bad patch! It is almost like they are the kiss of death!! Well those fans wont have to worry about that this time since Dyche lost out in the end to Blackpool gaffer, Paul Ince. The Tangerines of course head the table with 13 points from five games, ahead of QPR on goal difference with Burnley three points behind.
Bournemouth and former Burnley gaffer, Eddie Howe and QPR boss Harry Redknapp were also in the frame.
The decision to select Ince, announced on Friday September 6th was made by a panel comprising of former Charlton Athletic manager Alan Curbishley, Sky Sports Football League expert Don Goodman, Football League Chief Operating Officer Andy Williamson, League Managers` Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Head of Football Paul Wiggins.
Even Paul Ince did not sound too confident after picking up the award stating:
'It will probably be the kiss of death now, but we'll take it.'
Oh well better luck next time Sean! (I think?)
Clarets International-Not a Good Night!
Northern Ireland and Burnley defender, Danny Lafferty did not feature in the World Cup qualifer against Portugal at Windsor Park on Friday night and the luck of the Irish also deserted his team mates. Lafferty had to sit out the game due to suspension but with the Northern Ireland team leading Portugal 2-1 and the visitors down to ten men folowing the dismissal of Helder Postiga just before half time things were lucking good. Gareth McAuley and Jamie Ward were the goal scorers and at this stage an upset looked on the cards. Things though went belly up for the Irish in the last thirty minutes of the second half. Northern Ireland were also reduced to ten men when Chris Brunt was sent off and that kick-started the Portuguese into action. In the 68th minute, Cristiano Ronaldo scored the first of a hat trick which eventually gave Portugal a 4-2 win. It got even worse for the Irish when they were reduced down to nine men. With the score at 3-2 former Burnley striker, Kyle Lafferty who had only been on the pitch for 13 minutes after coming on from the bench picked up a straight red card for a dangerous challenge. Three minutes later Ronaldo sealed a convincing victory for the Portuguese with his hat trick.
It was not a good night either for Wales in their World Cup qualifier against FYR Macedonia in Skopje but at least in this match a current Burnley player did feature. Sam Vokes won his 27th full international cap after coming on from the bench in the 85th minute to replace Sunderland midfielder, David Vaughan. He could not help his side though avoid a a 2-1 defeat. Wales fell behind midway through the first half but pulled level thanks to a Aaron Ramsey penalty but with ten minutes to go FYR Macedonia got their winner.
Burnley X-Files: Transfer Window Movements
A few former Burnley players moved to new clubs on transfer deadline day:
Former loan defender, Bradley Orr moved from Blackburn Rovers to Blackpool on loan and looks set to be leaving his parent club eventually.
Charlton also confirmed they had signed our former loan winger, Cameron Stewart from Hull in a loan deal until 2nd January.
It was a pretty quiet deadline day all round for movement of players with a Burnley connection but at least we kept hold of Trippier and Ings and added to our squad with the arrival of Michael Kightly on loan from Stoke City.
