    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.

    2-1. If we play 4-2-2-2, we will lose.

    That game today took all excitement away
    It’s why I was so, so angry at the Norwich game, it showed some major issues that aren’t going to be fixed overnight if we are going to play Ralfs system and style of play.

    These last games have literally sucked the last bit of enthusiasm I had left I think. Just so abject.

    ………………….DDG
    Dalot…Varane…Lindelof….Telles
    ………………...McT
    ……….VDB…………..Fred
    Sancho….Ronaldo…..Cavani

    We get torn apart through the middle by everyone no matter how poor they are so let’s try and sort that out please.

    Maguire, Bruno & Rashford should be nowhere near the first XI.

    For the love of God can Rashford be dropped.

    If Maguire is suspended, Lindelof ill and Bailly at the AFCON I think McTominay will be used at CB as surely no fecking way Jones plays. Bruno suspended also so if Donny can’t start now he truly is fecked.

    De Gea, Shaw, Varane, McTominay, Dalot, Matic, Fred, Donny, Cavani, Ronaldo, Sancho.

    A shite struggle but a narrow win.

    Burnley seem to love scoring at our place in recent years.

    At least we might keep the ball for more than ten seconds with Bruno suspended. Small mercies.

    Yet some wants him to be dropped because he doesn’t come out enough.
    I acknowledge some of his limitations when commanding the line, but this looks like result of years of neglected coaching in which now he just replicates the same behaviour as a bad habit.

    No chance he's getting dropped, especially when he's capable of carrying his unexistant defense.

    A well rested Burnley will really fancy their chances in this game and they have zero fear of this group of United players and Old Trafford. Only lost 1 of their last 5 games in Old Trafford

    Expect loss or draw. Everyone will be complaining that we missed Bruno even though he's been crap for months.

    I think we will play better.

    I think though Rashford has to play on the left and Sancho on the right.
