As the Clarets march ever closer to the Premier League, thoughts naturally drift to what could lie ahead.

One thing for sure is that promotion to the Premier League will once again thrust Burnley onto the international media stage for all the right reasons.

Burnley’s last excursion with the top flight passed in something of blur and was seen by many as a once-in-a -ifetime experience.

A second promotion would certainly set up the Clarets for many years to come, but it would also give the whole Burnley economy a massive lift. Football nowadays really is more than a game at the top level.
