Burnley

Just wanted to say how great it is to see a well run club like them mixing it with the big guns at the top of the Premier League. They spend sensibly, have a great young english manager and a squad containing a majority of British/Irish players, including two, Tom Heaton and Jack Cork who have been called up by England and two more, Ben Mee and James Tarkowski, who I feel should also come into contention if their form continues.

I gather they are also a major assett to their local area as they do a great amount of work in their local community, and the atmosphere inside Turf Moor is a lot better then at some of the so-called bigger clubs.

They are generally a fantastic example of how to build a club sustainably and become established in the top flight without gambling with the clubs future, the likes of Hull and Portsmouth have shown what can happen when you go the opposite way and I genuinely hope the clarets can maintain their current form and qualify for Europe. For me that would arguably be an even better story then Leicester, as they are a far better run club with a local owner.

Must be a great time to be a Burnley fan, I'm sure both Greeners' are enjoying this season immensely.

Too Bloomin right we are, not always pretty football, as seen against Stoke, but it is effective and a few are starting to dream about a European escapade in 2018/19. Bet Whitty never thought his Liverpool side would be on a par with my Clarets.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
