    Burnley Football Club (nicknamed The Clarets), is a professional association football club based in Burnley, Lancashire. On 18 May 1882, The club was founded on On 18 May 1882, when Burnley Rovers Football Club decided to shift their allegiance from rugby union to football. Playing in various green or blue and white kits for their first few years, the club played their first competitive game in October 1882 against Astley Bridge in the Lancashire Challenge Cup, that game ending in an 8–0 defeat. In the early months of 1883 the club moved to Turf Moor and remain there, only their Lancashire rivals Preston North End having occupied the same ground continuously for longer. Burnley first appeared in the FA Cup in 1885–86 but were ignominiously beaten 11–0 when eligibility restrictions meant that their reserve side had to be fielded against Darwen Old Wanderers. On 13 October 1886, Turf Moor became the first ground to be visited by a member of a (British) Royal Family. When it was decided to found the Football League for the 1888–89 season, Burnley were among the 12 founders of that competition.

    The club enjoyed its Golden days as one of the most progressive clubs around in the 1950s to the early 1970s under the reign of chairman Bob Lord. They were one of the first teams to build a training ground next to the stadium, while every other team still trained in their own stadium, and the Turf Moor club used innovative training methods. Among other things, this resulted in an excellent youth team. Nearly all members of the 1959–60 Division 1 winning team had played in the Burnley youth team. Lord also pioneered the short-lived 'Football Specials'. The Clarets were also the first to let a manager decide about the transfer policy. After the 1959–60 title winning season finished, Burnley went to the United States to participate in the inaugural international football tournament in North-America, the International Soccer League. The following season Burnley played in European competition for the first time. Burnley's biggest traditional rivals are Blackburn Rovers and Bolton Wanderers with the match between Burnley and Blackburn sometimes called The Cotton Mills Derby. Burnley play their home games at Turf Moor.

    Young and Shaw should be rotating this position to keep both fresh.

    He might. Shaw was not great defensively vs Stoke. Would be a bit harsh, but equally Young has been one of our best players this season.

    Sanchez has already scored a last minute winner at Turf Moor this season. A goal here would be a new PL first I think.

    Agreed but don't think Lingard deserves to be dropped after 1 average game.

    I had to pick between him and Mata as I think Mata has been playing well too, and his extra bit of guile nudged it for me.

    I think it'll be Young again. Would like to see the journalists ask him that at the press conference or ask Mourinho's thoughts on how Shaw has been doing but they'll probably end up asking the same old boring questions.

    "Where will Sanchez play" or "how will he fit in" isn't the same old boring question though;)

    Need to win to keep up momentum, we've got a few teams biting at our heels and we play Spurs at Wembley the week after this. In all honestly we'll do very well to come out of that match with a draw, so a win here is vital.

    Probably the same team that faced Stoke. The only change I can see is maybe Herrera or Fellaini for Mata. Obviously, if Sanchez is signed, he'll be involved but maybe on the bench.

    No we should be giving Shaw an extended run in the team now he's getting back into something looking like a left back. Stick with him for now as he's not a weak leak defensively any more than Young. We need to quickly get to a position where we can make a long term judgement on Shaw. Bench him and again we have no idea what should be done in the summer re our LB position.

    We will have to perform better than last night against Stoke, we totally rely on Pogba and De Gea to perform consistently the rest all have up and down performances. Midfield needs attending to and we have to find a formation that suits the players abilities.

    I think we will win this quite comfortably. A month or two back, I feel we would have struggled, but we have improved since then & Burnley declined. I wouldn't be surprised if they don't make top half at end of season.

    There's really no point in dropping De Gea for a tough away match v the 7th placed team in the league.

    Drop Mata and get in Herrera or Fellaini to let Pogba play a bit more freely.

    Nice to have so many players back from injury.

    Agree with the above should go 433 I think with Herrera or Fellatio back in for Mata. Don't mind if Shaw or Young plays LB. Otherwise same again please and revenge time.
