'If It's Football, It's Vital'

S'canistay Varga

Stanislav Varga looks to be enjoying his stay at Turf Moor already after his Clarets debut and baptism of fire against the Mighty Arsenal last Sunday.

Considering the Slovakian 35-year old defender had not played a competetive game for his club, Sunderland this season, it might be expected he would be a little off the pace and not totally match-ready.

It could be argued that the former Celtic player was at fault with the goals, especially the first one from Eduardo but give him his due, he showed overall some deft touches and looked solid with some nice possession and passing skills.

We shall see how he performs in his League debut for the Clarets against Plymouth at Turf Moor this Saturday (assuming he is selected) but so far the signs have been encouraging and he can only get better with more games under his belt.

Stan had this to say about his short time at Burnley:

'If the (Burnley) manager would like me to stay then that would be good. I already like it here.

'I think they are a great bunch of lads and I think we showed if we win as many tackles as we did (against Arsenal), I think we're going to be all right in this division.

'I want to win as many games as I can and get Burnley up the table.'

The Slovakian is on an initial one-month loan from Sunderland but his Black Cats contract expires at the end of the season.

I would think a good case could be made for extending his stay until the end of the season at least but lets see how things unfold in the next few matches. The return of Clarke Carlisle and David Unsworth, plus possibly Michael Duff returning later this season could limit the appearances of Varga, but I expect he will certainly be on the bench a few times at least.

I thought he had a reasonable game against Arsenal considering, probably a rating of 6-7. How did you rate his performance?

Yeah probably at fault for the first goal in particular! A 6 is what i'd give him!

With the number of casualties and suspensions , it was wise to enlist the service of Varga who has the potential and the qualities of a good defender .The unfortunate part is that he is a loanee .
