Willie Irvine: Plenty of positive signs at Turf Moor

Nathaniel Chalobah

Nathaniel Chalobah

First published in Sport by

A HAT-TRICK of deadline day signings should set us up for the first half of the season.

The manager did well to land George Boyd in a club-equal record swoop from Hull City, Nathaniel Chalobah on loan from Chelsea, and then a late, late loan move for Manchester United’s Michael Keane.

The result against United on Saturday had filled me with confidence that we can have a decent season anyway, but with the extra additions I feel we have recruited well and have sufficient cover and competition in all positions going forward.

There is a long way to go, and while we only have one point from our tough start, with the way we have played and handled things I’m confident we won’t struggle at this level like we did in 2009/10.

I was certainly impressed with how we shaped up against Manchester United.

Man of the match was Scott Arfield, who cost nothing from Huddersfield and made Angel di Maria – the £59.7million signing – look like a little boy lost.

The big stars were brought down to earth as Sean Dyche’s team more than matched that of his counterpart Louis van Gaal, from start to finish, and could have come away with three points.

To do that, we have to start scoring goals.

I’m sure that Danny Ings just needs one to spark him off. But he isn’t getting the chances like he did in the Championship. That’s what happens when you play at the top level.

Even many moons ago when I was playing, Ray Benyon used to tell me of the difference between the divisions, and when you get to the top one, you do notice it.

In the old First Division the defence would open and shut so quickly you had to take your chances whenever they came along, and while so much else has changed in the game, it is still the same way now.

Danny will be a success in the Premier League, but the onus must not be put on him and the players around him are going to have to start providing more.

Hopefully the new signings, particularly Boyd, will help in that department.

Going back to Saturday’s home game with United, I was delighted to meet up again with my old foe Paddy Crerand, who is a legend at Old Trafford.

He said Burnley were looking good and wouldn’t have any problems in staying up, and wished them all the best.

No i know we aren’t promo favourites this season, we will struggle, next year will be our return,
i watched Manu V Bfc on the tele and the crowd was very quiet, both sets of fans seemed thoroughly fed up with their teams and Gary and Alan made the point that both teams were poor for diff reasons, the table doesn’t lie, joint bottom already, it’s going to be a long hard season I’m afraid down there propping up the PL

After being totally dejected at only having a point and not winning a game since last season, we then get mugged to the tune of 3 million signing Oddbod from carry on screaming.
If one season wonder boy and the joker don't start scoring soon, by the time vokes comes back, it could be curtains already.
Speaking of mugged how much did we pay for Sordell and are we actually paying Reid to play?

We will be ok , we will never hit as low as seven long years in the Mighty Div 4. And, even bottom of Div 4 too and with suffering 1500 loyal fans whilst the BFC directors had holidays in Russia and the Ukrane - an achievement they were proud of.
Its a long way away off for the Blues - even our Chicken Loving Owners, however Naive will bang the club rather than stoop so low.
The PL needs a few whipping boys and the BFC fit the bill , well done for promotion

stop living in the past and start living in the now 2014. Remember your team is only as good as the league they are in right now not in the distant past.

Thanks it was well earned and well deserved and i'll be enjoying all the football that we're involved in this year.
How was the game against wolves just out of interest, a team that just won promotion into the Championship...
Bitter Bitter Rovers, nothing to look forward to appart from throwing insults on every Burnley forum they can.
I aggree with the article there are plenty of possitive signs at Turf Moor, can't really be said over at Ewood can it.

Positive signs don’t get you out of trouble, positive purchasing PL players does. The LET can’t print negatives just yet but you know it’s only a few more games away and like last time the fans will be shouting for heads to roll.

Any way lets talk about football. i think we have done well on dead line day getting this three in. (Boyd, Chalobah and Keane) I would have like another defender in has well but will settle for what SD has brought in to the club. It is showing us fans that if we do go down we will go down with a fight and that is all we want. I do believe we do have enough now in the squad to finish 17 or above. Lets see how many rovers fans comment on this.

It is showing us fans that if we do go down we will go down with a fight and that is all we want. I do believe we do have enough now in the squad to finish 17 or above. Lets see how many rovers fans comment on this. Mac1983

To the tune of ‘Let it Go’ from the Disney movie ‘Frozen’

They’re typing more **** on the website tonight,
Not a good quote to be found.
Chickens in desperation and it looks like they’re going down.
The Blues are tumbling like a red hot lead balloon.
Poor AP4B, the residential loon.
Why don’t they know? Why can’t they see?
Blackburn Rovers – no longer Premier League.
They’re dropping fast, towards League One.
They’ll soon be gone!

So goodbye! So goodbye!
Won’t be playing you anymore.
So goodbye! So goodbye!
As you drop through the trap door.
I don't care what you’ve got to say.
Let your bile spill free.
I couldn’t really give a sh!t anyway.

It's funny how some muppets,
Can so easily take a fall.
And those fears that they were better are there no more at all.
It's time to scratch this Rovers itch,
We’ll do our talking on the pitch.
Now that we’re in the Premier League
Look up and see!

Burn-a-lee, Burn-a-lee
You can see us live on Sky.
Burn-a-lee, Burn-a-lee
In the next division high.
Here we are, and here we’ll stay.
Let the twonks type on…

Their hatred flurries through the web on to my screen.
They sold their soul to some chicken farmers oversea
The present really hurts them, they brag about the past
But now their money’s gone and they thought it would last!

Burn-a-lee, Burn-a-lee.
After Jordan hit the post.
Burn-a-lee, Burn-a-lee
We lay to rest the ghost
Here we are, and here we’ll stay.
Let your twonks type on!
We won’t be playing you again anyway...

Thank you, I'm here all week

Look at the time of Fat, bald Duncan's posting on a rival team's article.

Sad doesn't even cover it, I think he is just lonely.

no ones head is down at Premier League Burnley - but the deadheads have got their heads in the sand if they think they are getting out of the little championship and up into the big boys league.........
No i know we aren’t promo favourites this season, we will struggle, next year will be our return,
i watched Manu V Bfc on the tele and the crowd was very quiet, both sets of fans seemed thoroughly fed up with their teams and Gary and Alan made the point that both teams were poor for diff reasons, the table doesn’t lie, joint bottom already, it’s going to be a long hard season I’m afraid down there propping up the PL
After 3 games??? Of course the table lies. It doesn't lie once the games have got into double figures. If the table doesn't lie at this stage are you REALLY suggesting that Swansea are better than United and Arsenal, City and Liverpool????? The "table doesn't lie" is relative, enough games need to be played. Honestly!
Strange though how, for most of you lot, the table was lying ridiculously last season when Burnley spent the whole season in the top 3 and most of it in the top 2 (and a great deal at 1).
Don't come on here quoting platitudes unless you're going to be at least consistent.

What a surprise the 1st people to comment about Burnley are sad jealous Blackburn fans that have nothing better to do than read every thing about Burnley. Sad little Trolls
Jealous? Reid ? Joint bottom ? no cash to spend and worried fans ? we can wait and happy for January to arrive when u will be first to be accredited with an 'R' in the prem league table
You really are a bitter individual aren't you? So let me get this straight ,you would rather be plying your trade mid-table in the championship than than in the prem?
You say we have no money to spend whilst your club is quivering under the threat of FFP.
You criticise one of our signings whilst signing freebies and rejects.
You scoff at our league position after THREE games, two against top opposition.
You accuse fans of being worried when no Burnley fan I know is the least bit worried about anything.
Then, to prove your utter stupidity, you come up, yet again, with the "down by January" guff, which everyone with an ounce of sense and football knowledge knows is virtually impossible, last time out we ere in the top half in January. Stop wishing for things just because you can't stand the thought that your club is no longer the top dog in East Lancashire.
If you can't put together a logical argument go and play on the Rovers forum, I'm sure there will be some on there that will agree with you.
