Vital Reading Season Preview – Burnley
Club – Burnley
Founded – 1882
Nickname – The Clarets
Ground – Turf Moor (Capacity: 22,546)
Manager – Eddie Howe
When we face each other? – Sat 15th October (A) Sat 18th February (H)
Last Season Finish – 8th – Championship
Season Preview – Burnley have spent the majority of the last decade in the Championship until 2009, where they gained promotion to the Premier League through the play-off’s.
This was mainly down to their influential manager Owen Coyle, who left in January 2010 in favour of Bolton. They appointed Brian Laws then went straight back down to the Championship. A disappointing start followed then Laws was sacked, then brining in young Eddie Howe as manager.
With Burnley having some good players and especially goalscorers in Jay Rodriguez and Charlie Austin and some creative wingers in Chris Eagles and Lee Wallace, I believe they have enough fire power to get them into the play-off’s, although defensively they could improve.
My Prediction – 5th
