New Home Shirt

The new home shirt was announced this week together with confirmation that Hollands Pies would be the new shirt sponsors.

The shirt is predominantly claret, with a blue trim. The main feature different to recent years is a V-neck in blue (very retro!), The sleeves also have a blue trim with club embroidery.

The gold club crest is also a new key feature with gold piping across the front of the shirt

In a more traditional look, we will also be playing in white shorts with claret trim down both sides. The socks will also be white, with claret and blue trim.

This is maybe surprising as it was understood that the gaffer was very keen on a one colour strip hence last years all claret for the home kit and all yellow for the away kit. We still have to see what the design of the away kit will be like for 2007/8.

The kit is displayed on the Official Burnley FC site and very smart it looks too!

The one that got away!

It was confirmed this week that Steve Cotterill was interested in bringing Middlesbrough right back Stewart Parnaby to Turf Moor. He was however signed by Birmingham City.

Cotterill said 'It's the same old story really, every other player on a free transfer is doing the rounds, speaking to everyone at the moment.

'I read something saying that every free transfer will have about five clubs looking to talk to them.

'That always makes it difficult, but that's what I'm doing at the moment, looking at a few things.

'But there aren't many frees around, and the ones out there, some of their wages...

'The free transfer last week I had been working on for a month before the season finished, signed for a Premiership club for three times what we would be offering him.

'It was disappointing, but we will have to be patient.'

The one that might get away!

Clarets target Marek Saganowski looks more than likely to sign for Southampton at the moment. The striker was reported to be signing for the Saints for £700,000 but there has been no official announcement to date

The Busman's Holiday

Steve Cotterill revealed that he will forget about a summer holiday whilst he keeps a beady eye on the transfer market.

'There won't be a break for me this year because I need to be around,' said Cotterill.

'If you're not around you have an opportunity of missing something.

'I haven't stopped since the first week after the end of the season.'
