Re: Burnley

What odds did you get gg if you don't mind me asking? They certainly gave as good as they got against Premiership opposition in the number of games they played in the cups this season.

The only arrogance I can see here is your self opinionated twaddle. But then that is par for the course for many members of this forum.
Crawl back in your hole you horrible piece of slime.

Re: Burnley

It was a great day, I went down with some Burnley fans and was most impressed with the team and their fans, great noise, good atmosphere. Only fault didn't get back home till 2am, up for work at 5am, our coach was still on Wembley carpark at 7.45pm and they have given London the Olympics, the transport system is a joke.

Probably the biggest complaint from yesterday from our fans, even the staff at Wemburnley Stadium have been complimented compared to the gestapo trained stweards we have at the Turf.

Amazing that they build a big expensive stadium with large coach parks, yet still have back street access to them and no traffic control system.

I'll not pee you off by telling you I was home at 10.40pm for the highlights on ITV

Re: Burnley

although they built a new stadium capable of holding many more people they havnt altered the roads/carpark exits so it take even longer to get out is what the coach driver told my pal who went

Burnley, on the other hand also played 46 games to finish in 5th place but only won 21 games, drew 13 and lost 12 with a poor goal difference of 12 but only gained 76 points.

These play offs are nothing more than a lottery and in this case a smack in the footballing face of Sheffield United.

But if the Football League are going to have play offs, and I cannot see it changing its mind on this issue, it should also afford the teams at the bottom of the table the same lottery.

Down at the bottom of the table the third bottom team does not get a second chance to avoid the drop, yet like the 3rd placed team it also played 46 games.

To be fair the Football League should introduce play offs for the bottom of the table. The bottom two go down and the third bottom and the three teams above them join in a money spinning charade of play offs. The winning team of each match drops out and is safe, whilst the eventual loser gets relegated.[/quote
Typical arrogant United Fan, plus everybody knows the rules at the start of the season
Yes everyone knows the rules and thats a valid point as is Jambutty's..when Rovers beat Leicester in the play off final of '92 they had finished the season something like 10 points behind ( I'm not having a pop cause I went to that final).... the play off's are a success and have proved to make the end of season very exciting ...they are here to stay..but yes the bottom of leagues should be given the same chance in play offs.

Don't give it all that Bagpuss..heard a whisper that the reason you were home late is cos you pulled a Dingle and were "getting it on" round the back of Wembley car park

Precisely my point Mancie, on the first match day in August, all 24 teams in the Championship know the rules and what is needed, plus it does keep the season going right to the last day, as there were 3 teams with an interest going into the last match of the season

Re: Burnley

Congratulations Burnley.

I have to say that it was one of the best days out I've ever had. We set off from Netto car park at about 6.30. 21 coaches left Netto car park and as we got onto the motorway there were cars and coaches all flying claret and blue. It was like a scene from Wacky Races with all the kids waving at passing cars and coaches and everyone heading for the same place.

The atmosphere in Wembley was electric, especially during the 5 minutes stoppage time at the end, I could hardly bear to watch.

The downside was not being able to get off the coach park after the match. We got the coach off at about 7.15pm, then couldn't get out of Wembley. By the time we got to the motorway, we all needed a pee because we'd been to the off license whilst waiting to set off.

Got home at about 1.30am, absolutely knackered but a fab day out.

Glad to hear you had a great day out ... brings back memories of when I watched Burnley in the cup final against Spurs over 40 years back ... trouble is, they came away that day on the losing end ... but it was still an exciting time
