He's currently at the Macron Stadium, scouting the teams for next season. :lol:

Dyche tells everyone that they have loads of money to spend in an amazing demonstration of how not to get good deals in the transfer market.
“We are looking to spend as much money as we can,” he said.

“We are operating with situations that will push our boundaries, there’s no two ways about it.

“We are actively in the market, and I don’t mean at a very little level. We are actively trying to look for big signings, and if it needs big money we will back it.
Then back pedals a little and says...
“Of course there’s a limit, I must make that clear.
Too late! Only in Burnley. :lol:

They'd be better off investing in their atrocious facilities and that cow shed than overpaying for the Premiership journeyman they'll inevitably sign to stick up front.

More than we paid for Rhodes! :lol:

Gray is a good player, but 9 million good?

Maybe we can get Jutkiewicz off them now...he'd be an excellent Gestede replacement.

It's crazy that i was watching Gray for Luton in my final year at uni and to be fair you could see he was miles above the Conference level but i didn't expect to see him go for this much. Also remember at the promotion celebrations the host asked Gray if he was going to be there next season in front of thousands of fans and Gray just didn't know what to say, it was rather funny!

Joey Barton is a dingle! Wonder if he'll start speaking with a yorkshire accent?

If ever there was a player who could reinforce the Burnley stereotype...

So, all round nice guy Joey Barton, who's set to rejoin the dingles in January has just been charged by the FA for placing 1260 bets over the last 10 years. Yes, ONE THOUSAND, TWO HUNDRED AND SIXTY.

I reckon a 3 match ban for each instance is in order? :hyper:
