    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.

    So do we move Martial to the left or keep him through the middle?

    Going to this game and will probably be my last PL game to attend this season (I normally attend at least another 3 games but what's the point) my last visit to Old Trafford was 2-2 with the might of Aston Villa.

    Play Bailly against Burnley to make it interesting. Probably asking for a red, but would at least be good to watch!

    With the game live on tv, I hope the anti Woodward/Glazer chants are even louder than they were at the Norwich City game.

    Manchester Utd get the 3 points but all the media attention is on the above.

    Greenwood and Mata surely have to start. Pereira dropped and maybe James too.

    Feels like it is up to Greenwood and Martial to get the goals now.

    I was hopeful that we'd be starting the 3 m's together for this a couple of days ago. Now, we probably won't see it again this season :(

    Gonna be a long see without Rashford. Hope to see us win, but think we’re in for a long night.

    Got a feeling if we draw or lose this Ole will be gone.

    Wolves and SU have tough games so at least we're unlikely to be overtaken even if we do lose.

    He’s going nowhere at the moment
    Yep. Our rivals are all playing really tough games and we have the easiest fixture in comparison. Even if we lose we'll still probably be in the same position.

    If I had a dollar for everytime I read this. Literally every match day thread.

    There is no indication, at all, outside of Redcafe megathreads, that Ole’s job is at imminent risk.

    I could see Greenwood also burning out given the pressure that will be on his shoulders for the next couple of months.

    James is already suffering and now he is going to be pushed to play more minutes than he should due to no squad depth.

    This will not be the walkover that we got from Norwich and can definitely see some hostility towards Woody & the board again.

    I will tell you what we are pretty damn lucky that Maguire is available for this and hasn't got down with a long term injury yet, someone was saying that he was limping around today at times which suggests he is playing injured too.

    I think we'll win this one despite Burnley coming off a good win against Leicester. We need to rest AWB and James IMO, unfortunately we can't really rest Maguire or the midfielders as they are the only 2 we have.

    If Bailly is fit I'd personally fire a shot across Victors bows and play him. Mata for Pereira, Greenwood for James
