Rumour Mill-A.Fairy

Rumour Mill-A.Fairy

Owen Coyle appears to have accepted that there is nothing we can do to improve our home form.

Speaking after yet another draw and no win at Turf Moor this time against Sheffield Wednesday he said:

'In the main I felt we dictated the pace of the game and it will be nice to get our full compliment of players back. There is no magic fairy dust, we just need to keep working hard and trying to get that home win on the board.'

Barry Kilby and Brendan Flood were not happy with this negativity from the new gaffer and have put together a surprise bid after attending a Peter Pan pantomime over Christmas.

Neverneverland Wanderers gaffer, 'Tinker' Bell was in the audience and this was an opportunity our ambitious Board could not miss.

After delicate negotiations, 'Tinker' agreed to sell the Clarets his star player for £4.5 million and a tooth.

'So where is he then? said Kilby, we need to agree terms'

'He's behind you', said the Wanderers gaffer

' Oh no he isnt' said Flood

...Vital Burnley will report on the final outcome of these negotiations once the pantomime is over and we can win our first game at Turf Moor since 23rd October when we beat a load of Canaries!

Happy New Year!!

It is imperative thatwe do have new players. I feel that Coyle will find a couple from Scotland from the lower divisions and at affordable price .Some may come from the Premiership but I fear that these players would choose more glamourous clubs .

Well Coyle has said this, but is one or two enough? "We are down to the bare bones but we will get one or two players in during January to freshen things up."
