A lesson to other clubs. If you have a good manager, stick with him even if you get relegated.
I have nothing but admiration for this guy. Improves his team every year. Upgrading the style even whilst changing players
Agreed. I’ve got a lot of respect for Burnley because of how they’ve stuck with him and improved over the last few years.
Looks like they'll be in the Europa League next season.
They had a bit of a bad run but they've won their last four in a row, and three of those have been away from home.
Pep will win manager of the season no doubt but for me Dyche deserves it.
He is really very good manager. So many times they have come back to draw, so many times they have scored late winners too.
They have won 4 games in a row, and just 5 points behind Arsenal.
Let's see how they handle European commitments and whether the pressure puts them in a relegation battle. Dyche has been excellent this season, and if he manages to keep them in positions close to say, Leicester are currently, then he will have really proven himself for the next step.
His achievements is all the more impressive considering Burnley lost their best striker and center back in the summer.
Yeah, he improved their defensive record too. Last season they conceded 55 goals, this season they have conceded 28 with 6 games to go.
They will also match goal scored too, they need 8 goals in 6 games.
He deserves to be in the Europa League next season. Fantastic manager.
Yeah massive well done to him. Great job.
Staying in 7th despite scoring less than 1 goal per game is massive
City look like they'll have a record breaking season.. Points total, goals scored.. Already have most successive wins in a season. They won 18 in a row. Pep deserves it.
Dyche has done brilliantly, but we have seen other smaller clubs have great seasons in the past.
I'm not sure Europa League would be good for him. If they don't bulk up the squad it effectively means he won't have a great league campaign....Has he ever got to spend the 100m staying in the PL is worth?
True but we've seen the leagues biggest spenders win it in the past as well.
Where would he go next after Burnley? England manager?
Not with the records City are going to be setting.
They'll end up with close to 100 points.. if not more.
They'll also, almost certainly end up with the most goals in a league season. 100+
Its not just winning the league, its setting new records, which will take some beating.
Hopefully, by far the best candidate.
Big plaudits go to him. Excellent manager who has made the most of resource so he's had. No whinging or moaning, cracked on and got the best out his players.
I agree with regards to the Europa, could be a poisoned chalice given the squad depth. Still, great reward on the other hand.
Just hope the board continue to back him, and don't get silly. The reality is they most likely won't be a consistent top half team, and will continue to have relegation worries going forward.
Anyone think he might be in line for the Everton job? North West, step up, bigger budget and expectation. Be a shame for Burnley but your it seems a natural step in many ways.
I guess it is his playing system that allows him to get the best out of the team. Tarkowski, Pope are all having a good season. But i feel he should move on to bigger challenge and to also refresh himself.
Only 2 points behind arsenal with 5 games to go, they're playing against each other on the second to last game of the season as well, could be the 6th place decider
Seriously though, sounds like a bit daft but I geniunely would welcome us giving him a chance to manage utd if we split ties with Mourinho in the near future. I reckon Fergie would be over the moon as well. This guy's different gravy to Moyes.
His football is dull though, taking no nothing away from what he has achieved at Burnley he has done fantastic he could well be big Sam 2.0
He's proved to be dynamic with his tactics though, he just goes into the games setting his team up to give them the best possible chance to win the game. He has a knack of getting the best out of his players and understands the importance of team spirit.
All the players seem to have a really good bond with him as well, Trippier held a sign up at the darts this year calling him Ginger Mourinho after leaving the club more than a year ago, even Barton regularly sung his praises which is very unlike him.
There's a lot more to him than being another big sam in my opinion..
And yet his ratings arent even close to England`s best we can offer Eddie "my team concede 3 per game" Howe
Troy deeney said he’s a fantastic man manager which is probably the most crucial part to their success.
I'm looking forward to seeing what they do in Europe next season, they remind me of a low budget Atletico Madrid.
To be honest, I think thats the most important part of management these days.
I don’t think the board would ever risk taking Dyche if we punted Jose.
They had an interview with him on Sky last week and he seems a genuinely likeable, humble and honest bloke. He knows he's unfashionable, but he has done a remarkable job tbf.
He's done an excellent job, but not sure he'd really work at United. His year with Burnley is probably very similar to what Allardyce achieved with Bolton. And that's not to knock him - because for as much as Allardyce has become a bit of a meme associated with the sort of mid-table relegation zone managerial merry go-round, alongside being a bit of a dick, his first spell at Bolton genuinely was very good in that he managed to consistently achieve top half finishes with a club that didn't really have all that much of a right to be there, generally speaking.
But like Big Sam, I think Dyche is more suited to his current level than at the top of the game. His Burnley side aren't universally awful to watch but generally can be quite pragmatic and defensive, as is evidenced by their fairly poor goals record for where they are in the table. But he is still fairly young, relatively speaking, and could continue to improve. Will be interesting to see where he eventually goes when he leaves Burnley.
Manager of the season for me. He's done an amazing job without the huge cheque book that City, Chelsea and United have.
2 points behind Arsenal now, and the in form side in the league.
They will probably be knocked out in qualifying.
They're 2 points behind Arsenal man, completely underrating them there.
They've got Chelsea and Arsenal coming up. Absolutely crucial games if they want to get in the Europa League.
He's done an absolutely fantastic job. Many thought Burnley would go straight back down.
Recently the likes of West Ham, Southampton and Hull City were all knocked out in qualifying. And Everton were a disaster this season.
A lot of these English teams get embarrassed in the EL, teams better than Burnley. They’ll probably come up against a side already a few games ahead of them in fitness and go out.
No question he and Burnley deserve the reward of the Europa, but I'd worry their squad size would be stretched too far and cause them a dip in the League.
All part of the course though.
Really impressed by how despite losing key players he’s improved them. Be interesting to see how he’d get on in a club with more ambition and money.
Would his skills be transferable, would he change tactics slightly ? I’d like to find out.
He does moan A LOT after matches which is annoying but maybe he feels he needs to push Burnley’s case forward as their not a big team.
If he didn't have that gravel voice and was more handsome, he'd be rated more highly.
That's true. They would need to strength a lot in the summer, as their squad look thin and average on the paper.
