Shit on a stick but much needed three points.

Better performance, and 3 points. Would have liked a clean sheet though. Our center backs are shocking though. McTominay MOTM.

Still some obvious kinks to be ironed out, but can't argue with the result.

Roll on 2022.

Good first half, conserved energy the second, all whilst playing against a Burnley side putting in a good performance. Will take that.

Solid win - probably should have scored a few more. Controlled second half well until the last 5/10 minutes but hopefully that will improve as they get more used to winning

We played the entire second half happy to sit on a 3-1 lead at home to Burnley. No top team does that. This seasons end can’t come soon enough.

A lot better. Still miles away.

McTominay was absolutely brilliant, and Sancho needs to start, he's clearly got the talent.

Won't labour on the negatives, but Maguire is having a shocker.

That second half :lol:

Burnley thought they could come at us a bit in the first half and that gave us chances, which we took pretty well. Could've had a couple more, but good enough.

Not amazing but it’s a start. Glad we got the early goal or that could’ve been uncomfortable. We’re just treading water until we can get everyone back on the training ground it seems.

Happy with today's result. Easy game and good, comfortable win without much trouble.

Good result , but issues still so obvious. Still giving away possession so cheaply. Unless things change quickly in 2022 we are really going to struggle getting top 4.

Dreadful performance, more of what we've served up all season but we'll take the points.

Got the win. First half was ok, second less so. McT excellent.

Hopefully we get some signings in January & start playing on the front foot. Far too passive in & out of possession.

Got the goals, managed the game. Not champagne football but was what we needed it to be. Onto the next.

3 points, but that was poor. Far too many players either struggling in this system or aren't good enough.

Maguire and awb need to both see the bench.

Meh. Decent first half but we give up so many easy chances.

We will put out a fire in solving the midfield issue but that defence is shite too.

Decent win just not the amazing performance we hoped. We don't really seem to be pressing and it's probably the right call with this schedule.

Happy with the 3 points but there was absolutely nothing to take from the performance. Still have no idea what this team is about or trying to be.

- we are lucky it’s burnley
- weak center backs
- shaky midfield
- enjoyed Shaw/sancho in the first half
- should have killed the game early in the second half

3 Points but not an impressive game

This Burnley side is poor but could have easily scored 3+ goals today

Lads it stoke city Burnley. It was a good win, but not the performance expected as we have significant better players than burnley. It appeared that burnley had more control of the game than we did. Regardless, hopefully this give the lads more confidence into the next game. The changes Ralf made was needed, but we will have to see how we will incorporate rashy and Bruno in our team again.

Better team performance. Never looked in danger.
But how bad can Maguire be, it's barely professional footballer at this point.
