Judging by posts on local message boards, Clarets boss Sean Dyche is a condemned man more than a month before the new season even kicks-off.
Nothing new there then. At the weekend Burnley were linked with Bolton striker and former skipper Kevin Davies – not my cup of tea I have to admit, but the online tirade against Dyche for even being linked with him was there for all to read. The manager has also come under fire for the likely departures of star striker Charlie Austin, Chris McCann and Martin Paterson, but surely it is too early to call for the manager’s head. He needs a fair crack of the whip and now is a time for all Burnley fans to get behind the club not have a go at it.
