    ⚽️📻 Discovered the From the Beehole End podcast, which I’ve been listening to all the way South.

    Think this is probably my favourite BurnleyFC podcast. Good structured discussion, without unnecessary polish.

    ⚽️🏟️📷 Everton 3 Burnley 0

    Everton v Burnley at Goodison Park, Liverpool on 1 November 2023. Leaving Burnley at 1620, I caught the supporters club coach at Queensgate. Sadly too late in the day for Milltown Pies to be open. We arrived outside Stanley Park about an hour before kick-off, picking up a program on the walk into Goodison Park. At £4, this is the most expensive program I’ve bought so far this season. The ground is a proper old football ground, with old school food kiosks, and a wooden stand.

    ⚽️ Feels strange listening to Bournemouth v Burnley on Clarets+. First game I’ve not made this season, that I’ve not been able to watch.

    ⚽️📷 Brentford 3 Burnley 0

    A day out by rail to watch Burnley lose 0 -3 at Brentford in the Gtech / Brentford Community Stadium. I could not get a place on the supporters coach today, so headed down to London on the train. Despite the disruption from Storm Babet, the trains worked flawlessly in both directions. I even managed to get an earlier train due to the advance cancellation of mine. So strictly the weather made me an hour faster, and the travel was about 3h lighter in each direction for getting train rather than coach.

    ⚽️ Brentford v Burnley - genuinely excited to be coming to a bus stop in Hounslow, real soon. If a little gutted to be too late for Griffin Park.

    ⚽️ Burnley 1 Chelsea 4

    Photographs from Burnley v Chelsea on 7 October 2023. Burnley probably had the better of the first half, and would have deserved to take the lead in to half time had they not been pegged back by a freak deflection off Ameen Al-Dakhil. We have been put ahead by Wilson Odobert, finishing neatly across the goal from a Foster assist. The least said about the second half, probably the better. Shortly after the break Vitinho brought down Sterling who was probably going nowhere, giving Chelsea a penalty from which they never looked back.

    ⚽️ Luton Town 1 Burnley 2 A strong first half where Burnley looked on a different level ended with a Berge assisted Foster opener - I thought had struck the side netting. Luton dominated second, deserved to equalise, a piece of Bruun Larsen magic from the restart secured the win. #clarets #burnleyFC

    ⚽️ Newcastle United 2 Burnley 0

    Photographs from the game today. Burnley had chances, could and should have scored at either end of the game. Between those two spells, they did not really look in the game. Authors of their own misfortune again. Though Ramsay appeared to be fouled in the build up to Almiron’s screamer, not reviewed by VAR - he gave the ball away far too much today. The second half penalty was a really poor penalty to give away - would have been better keeping tight and forcing a much more difficult cross / shot.

    ⚽️ Very excited that my Social Secretary has picked up last minute tickets and a place on the coach for me for the Newcastle game tomorrow.

    ⚽️📺 Forest 1 - Burnley 1

    The game was evenly balanced, but the result hangs on two identical VAR reviews where the ball strikes a left shoulder in the build-up. The Forest equaliser stands, Burnley’s second does not. Read on for my thoughts ➡️ #utc #burnleyfc Ahead of the game, a point would have been a good result, but on the performance we will be disappointed not to have won. Burnley started very nervously. After the first 15 minutes we took control of the ball, slowed the game, and never really looked threatened.

    ⚽️ Burnley 2 - 5 Tottenham Hotspur

    The third of three home games at the beginning of the Premier League Season, none of which we’d have expected to win, though we would have hoped to steal a point or two out of Villa or Spurs - that was not to be. Aspects of the performance were amongst the best we have seen this season so far, others amongst the most frustrating. The BBC call this performance a thrashing, I’d question if they actually watched the game.

    Nottingham Forest 0 - ⚽️ Burnley

    Photographs from our game away at Nottingham Forest in the second round of the Carabao Cup last night. Probably the most noticeable change was the return of Muric between the sticks. Though you always have your heart in your mouth with Muric in goal, it did seem to instill a bit more confidence and decisiveness in defence. In the first half Burnley showed that they really can compete against Premier League teams in a way they failed to do so against Man City and Aston Villa.

    On the way to Nottingham for Forest v Burnley in the Carabao Cup.

    My first away game of any type, in about 25 years.

    Burnley ⚽️ v ⚽️⚽️⚽️ Aston Villa

    First game back at Turf Moor in over a fortnight due to the reconstruction works at Kenilworth Road. I got the the Fanzone a little later than I’d have liked, and due to the queues opted to just grab a pie and a mug of bovril from the concourse - which was actually ace. First half was really tough. We generated little from positions out wide, which would culminate in Manuel Benson’s replacement at half time, and were especially vulnerable at right back.

    🐕⚽ took bayLee for a wee walk to see the Turf - he was most disappointed that there was no game on today, but that’s tomorrow.

    Popped onto MyWhoosh this evening to test the new update. More on that another time. Found this awesome kit in the garage though - much like our 21-22 first team kit.

    In other exciting news… this wee surprise appeared in my ticketing account on what was otherwise a really tough day.

    Amazing weather for first night back in Premier League.

    Had our moments in the game too. Less clinical, and a little more generous in defence. Did not look out of place, certainly not outclassed.

    I’ve been at a few clubs over the past 20 years, but there’s never been anything like this, never this many people, it’s not normal. Burnley is not normal.

    The atmosphere was absolutely electric in Burnley this afternoon, all the way from town, to the Turf. Feel so proud of what our wee adopted town has achieved this year.

    Testing out micro.blog video, and a few photographs taken along the route.

    BBC report that Vincent Kompany is on the shortlist for the Chelsea job.

    We’ve had an amazing ⚽ season, and VK will not be here forever - he would have to be as mad as a box of frogs to leave for that job though.
