  5. FM17 | Burnley | Return to glory

    Trouble at Burnley A poor start to the campaign has left Burnley languishing down in 18th in the Premier League. One solitary win came against and equally poor Hull team & a last gasp draw away at Arsenal. Lack of quality particularly in defence has left Burnley wide open to a barrage of goals in particular the 5-1 demolition by Man Utd. Sacked before christmas? The return to glory was never going to be easy, especially give the financial constraints at the start of the season. The board are already starting to loose patience & Bobby G may well get his marching orders before his new singings are able to make an impact on January 1st. Whats Next After a tough run of games thats seen Burnley play - Man Utd, Man City, Chelsea, Arsenal & Spurs, Burnley will take on the lower end of the premier league table in the lead up to December. Vital points are to be won or lost as the fight for his job becomes very real Follow the Journey on Youtube Burnley - Youtube Playlist

  7. Hi All, After many years playing football manager games i have finally taken the leap and am going to blog & video about my FM save. I will drop quarterly updates into this post to keep you up-to date with progress & be uploading videos onto my youtube channel of the games. I have recently set up a youtube channel & created an intro video for the series which shows the compelling history of Burnley FC. Link - Burnley | Return To Glory Youtube Save Background Burnley once were one of the big teams in English football. Back in 1914 & famously in 1959-1960 they won the old division one. Harry Potts led the small Lancashire town all the way to top the league and in a memorable 2-1 against Man city at maine road captured the title. Legends such as Pay Pointer, Jimmy Adamson & Jimmy McIlroy have long cemented themselves into Burnley folk law. The 70's & 80's proved to be tougher times at Burnley and 10 years later they were relegated into the old division two. Times got tougher and on May 9th 1987 Burnley faced what was once unthinkable for the former champions of England - relegation out of the football league. Burnley had to win and results go their way in order to stave off relegation. A thrilling 2-1 win set the crowd into raptures & Lincoln were the unfortunate team to be relegated that year. THIS WAS ROCK BOTTOM!! Burnley began to slowly rise up the football league again and at wembley in 2009 Wade Elliot scored the goal that took Burnley back to the big time. 2 promotions and 2 relegation's followed before Sean dyche won championship and burnley return to glory is now one step closer. Today Sean Dyche has left the club looking for greener pastures & Burnley have employed Rob Taylor as the new manager. Taylor comes in cold to the role with only sunday league football experience to count on. He has stated to the press that he once took Bromley to the champions league final on football manager. The Team 3 new signings Dider Drogba coming in as cover - Drogba at Burnley if only it was 10 years ago!!! Guido Carrillo as the new star striker Macnelly Torress as the main AMC Sam Vokes has left the club for £6m that could possibly rise to £7m Torres is injured but only slightly improvement across the board. It seams a sunday league manager for a small premier league club isn't the most appealing to quality footballers. Finances Who said that being rich was a guarantee when joining the premier league. In debt before we start. Season Goal EPL - Avoid Relegation (this could be quite the task) FA Cup - Fifth Round The old milk cup - Fifth Round. Thanks for reading. Be sure to check out the youtube videos & I will post quarterly season updates. Cheers Bobby G
