'I dont think hed be as effective!': Burnley, Aston Villa and Crystal Palace fans react to bizarre Sean Dyche reports

The speculation suggests Palace and Villa are keeping tabs on Dyche’s situation, following chairman Mike Garlick’s comments recently, that the club could face a £50m shortfall if the current season is not completed amid the coronavirus pandemic.

And fans of the three clubs in question - Burnley, Aston Villa and Crystal Palace - were quick to react on social media... scroll down to view their comments on Twitter:

@BandanaSavos: "Dyche was relegated and Burnely stuck with him. Yet we throw our own manager [Dean Smith] under the bus."

@Tpjw1982: "That's a bit unfair, Smith had to build a team overnight, we were never had a settled unit, and would Dyche be able to handle a club like Villa?"

@Hooked_On_Ink: "Don’t want him, Burnley can keep him thanks."

@the_parrots: "No chance, he and Burnley are a good match. He’s a bit old school, direct, mostly plays 442. I don’t think he’d be as effective at another club."

@Ayew_SZN: "Benteke banging them in. Defence never concedes again. McNeil and Wilf on the wings. Palace in Europe. Beer everywhere."

@benh199225: "I’d definitely have him at Palace after Roy."

@Sean_Finegan4: "Hope there’s some truth in this... would love Dyche at Palace."

@JamieSmithSport: "Didn't Palace give Hodgson another year about five minutes ago?"

@craigtaylorb: "There have been so many strange rumours flying around. It's hard to see how much truth is in most of them or whether it's pure boredom at the lack of football but despite his managerial flaws I'd like Smith to continue."
