tbf burnley have done that to us many times. the sooner these ****s get relegated, the better. they have no interest in playing football and start time wasting as early as the 11th minute.
Don't get me wrong, I fucking detest it. I hate the manager, and team in general. But it's amazing how effective it is. Chelsea had no rhythm in the last 15 minutes, I don't remember a single decent chance they had to win the game. That was mainly due to Burnley's anti-footballing tactics slowing the game down to a stop.

Dyche works wonders with resources he has. He makes the financially doped teams looked stupid at times .
Love Burnley!

I get that playing ultra-negative football isn't easy on the eye and is utterly frustrating. But what else do we expect the likes of Burnley to do? The PL has become so lopsided and so saturated with money that the prospect of dropping out of it for a club like Burnley is so terrifying that they will do anything they can to avoid it from happening, to the point of turning every game into an 'anti-football' grind.

I agree that it's not good football, but it's ridiculous to suggest that they don't belong in the league because they don't play the way we want them to. They want their slice of the pie and are fighting tooth and nail to get it. What do we want them to do? Open themselves up for a drubbing just to keep us entertained? Who the fuck are we to demand that of them?

We owe you nothing thank you very much...
A prime example of why we should all take time to work our way through all unread comments within a thread before we start posting replies (see my post above).

I overestimated you lot by thinking that nobody would have thought of such an equally stupid joke. But I'm glad we're on the same page, Mark :D

So basically it's the title-decider tonight with Man Utd Vs City

I'm going to predict a Utd thumping

Mourinho used to love these types of games, but Utd don't have Mourinho anymore

4-1 to City
