Hello im Milly Clode and welcome to Skysports news this morning . We will cross straight to Chris Kamara at Gawthorpe Hall (burnleys training ground) at the breaking news that Brian Laws is sacked !


[QUOTE]Yeah , Morning Everybody , well with Burnley Sitting 18th halfway through October its no real suprise to me , Chairman Barry Kilby wants them to achieve promotion this season and Brian has simply not got them performing. No word from Barry yet who he wants to appiont but erm .. oh yeah here's Russell Wilcox who will be taking training for the rest of the week and the match at the majeski this weekend.
Thats all i gathered up to now , come back to me later Milly. [/QUOTE]


Thanks Chris.




Next Burnley Manager :
Paul Jewell 3/1 (fav)
Alan Curbishley 5/1
Keith Hill 7-1
Russell Wilcox 12-1
Gordon Strachan 16-1






Curbishley Appointed New Clarets Manager .

Alan Curbishley the 53 year old ex-Charlton and West Ham manager has today took Over the Unachieving Burnley team who are lying 18th on the table .

[QUOTE]I'm really pleased to be here , I'm hoping this team can gain promotion this season there defanitley good enough , its just wheather we can perform well enough . Russell is taking charge of this weekends game against Reading and i will take my first training session this Monday (18th october 2010)[/QUOTE]

i started unemployed and got offered the Burnley job on the 15th october 1 day before reading so i asked assistant to pick the team for that game and we got beat 1-0 to a 89th minute goal .
im doing well so i thought it would be a good story

After the Everton game i felt a renewed sense of ergency , that these boys now believed that they can get promoted .

Cardiff 1 - 3 Burnley
Alexander 18 , Bellamy 21 , Bikey 32 , Eagles 59

The unity of these boys after the Everton game has been unreal , it was a great away win a 2nd placed Cardiff.


I told the boys what a great win that was and how vital
that win could be if we could get up the top by
the end of the season .

Burnley 0 - 3 Swansea
Dobbie 60 , Pratley 68 , Dobbie 90

This game ****** me off we dominated the first half they counter
attacked got their 1st goal we started arguing and
they ran away with it , we arent going to dwell on
this though .

Bury 0 - 5 Burnley
Iwelumo 34 , Paterson 48 + 53 , Bikey 81 , Iwelumo 90

Yes there a league two side but it was a perfect
way to bouce back from embarrasment .

Scunthorpe 2 - 2 Burnley
Wallace 24 ,Brandy 54, Thompson 73 , Iwelumo 86

Well another game that ****** me off
we should have won .
But Chris Iwelumo is performing well and thats pleasing .

Derby 2 - 3 Burnley
Fox 8 , Paterson 34 , Randall 43 , Barker 66, Bywater og 89 .

Yes we won , but we should never be giving 2 goal leads away .

Burnley 2 - 1 Portsmouth
Wallace 43, Paterson 70 , Brown 86

A good pleasing win for us today !

Any updates coming soon? :p

Still can't believe you're playing Alexander, technically and mentally a decent player, but physically he's just horrible. He hasn't played a second under my control, not even in a friendly :p
