Underdog tag suits us says Clarets boss of top six tussle

This Is Lancashire: Sean Dyche Sean Dyche

BURNLEY boss Sean Dyche has warned against under-estimating injury-hit Nottingham Forest, as the sides prepare for a top six showdown at Turf Moor tomorrow.

Billy Davies has bemoaned a catalogue of casualties this season, most recently with the loss of midfield duo Henri Lansbury and David Vaughan, with defender Eric Lichaj also in an ever-increasing queue for the City Ground treatment table.

But the news has not lulled Dyche into a false sense of security for this meeting with his first club, especially given the volume of changes Forest made for their Capital One Cup clash in September.

Burnley, who showed typical consistency in team selection that night, won 2-1 to set up a fourth round meeting with West Ham. But Forest still offered a stern test, and Dyche has not forgotten.

“I think they have the deepest squad of players in the division. They changed 10 players for the cup game and I looked at the team sheet and thought ‘that’s a handy Championship team’,” said the Burnley boss, whose side are without defeat in their last 19 league games at home.

“They’ve got a few injuries to the super big signings, like Kelvin Wilson, but I saw them against Leicester on Wednesday and they had seven players in the side who had played in the Premier League, so they’re certainly no mugs.

“But (Jamaal) Lascelles has done very well and many players have played in the Premier League. My point is that it’s a strong position even though it’s weaker by their standards.

“It’s a strong position given the rest of the market, but every manager has a challenge.

“I certainly don’t underestimate the power of clubs like Forest as they can change the team at will and still be very effective.

“I commentated on their game against Watford. They had Greg Halford up front and four centre forwards on the bench. That’s a luxury in this division.

“Their squad is a credit to the financial power of clubs like Forest. They’ve spent a hell of a lot of money since pre-season and they’ve brought in some real quality.

“They’re a big club and considerably backed by a recent owner.

“They’ve got a Championship manager who knows the script and has been there seen it and done it. He’s got a big squad of players and Forest’s challenge is to keep that mix right, which they’ve done pretty well.”

With a significantly smaller squad, Dyche has made injury prevention a priority this season. He dreads to think what challenges his own side would face if they were to have similar absences.

“Of course it would affect us, if we had four or five injuries. It would affect us if we had three or even two.

“It would affect any squad, just some less than others,” said the Burnley boss, who has named the same starting XI for the last five games, and does not anticipate the need for enforced changes tomorrow.

Consistency of selection and results have gone hand in hand, keeping the Clarets unbeaten in nine Championship games and with a two-point cushion over Derby County, who climbed to third with their midweek win at Sheffield Wednesday.

Dyche admits that a five-month spell in the top three has influenced rising expectation levels, but not to the extent that big-spending Forest are facing.

“There’s still massive expectation there and it probably is as high as it’s been this season, because of the wealth and all those players. It brings a higher expectation and you can understand why when you see what they’ve got available,” said the Clarets boss.

“But it’s a tough task to deliver in the Championship.

“Without doing ourselves down – as we believe in what we’re about – but Leeds, Sheffield Wednesday, Forest, they’re massive clubs and that’s how hard the challenge is. But there’s no divine right.

“We’ve seen it time and time again, people come out of the Premier League and people just expect them to go straight back up. Some do, some don’t – I’m pretty sure there’s a lot that don’t.

“Just because you’ve got resources, it doesn’t guarantee anything.

“I think there’s an underdog spirit with us and we’ve turned this season into a story of ‘what if?’ “At the start of the season people were saying, ‘Good old Burnley, they’re having a good go at it.’ Then mid-season it was ‘They’re still there.’ Now it’s ‘What if they’re still up there for a reason.'’ “But it’s still an underdog situation because of small squads and finance.

“Although (money) doesn’t guarantee anything it makes sure those clubs are usually the ones who are up there.

“The underdog spirit is a valuable tool because it makes expectation different. I’ve said all along, we have our own expectation. From the outside they’ll be looking at others like Forest, QPR, Reading, even Wigan.

“We just challenge ourselves on a weekly basis and that will remain until the last ball is kicked, no matter what.

“It’s a big challenge, not an impossible one.”

Its getting to squeeky bun time. The question is can the clarets hang on to an automatic spot with the raft of draws they have been getting with everyone above mid table? Starting with Forest i predict another draw and the slide to start,culminating in a lot of tears being shed and a Devon Loch finish

My prediction is 10-5-0 in the final 15. Easily overtaking the top of the table and flying into the PL. This prediction thing is pretty easy! GO CLARETS!!

At the start of the season you were predicting that Burnley minus Charlie Austin would be relegated with no one to score the goals.

A few games into the season you were predicting that Burnley would still be relegated.

A few more games into the season you were predicting that Burnley's good start would slow down and that we would still be relegated.

On 21 September 2013 Burnley went 2nd in the Championship after a 2-1 win at Leeds United, you said it was a false position and we would soon be slip-sliding down the league with injures to our small squad causing ultimate capitulation.

On October 1st Burnley went to the top of the Championship following a 2-0 win at Doncaster Rovers, you once again insisted that injuries and suspensions would catch up with us and we'd drop like a stone.

On the run up to Christmas you ASSURED us that our annual "Christmas Capitulation" combined with injuries to key players would see us fall out of play-off contention and slide toward mid-table as you passed us in the other direction. (On Christmas Day 2013 we were still top of the league and 13 points ahead of you).

In January you claimed that Ings, Vokes and Trippier would be snapped up, that Sean Dyche would jump ship for one of the smaller Premier League clubs and our long awaited decline would begin.

In late January you claimed that we would still be slipping out of the top 6 when our star players would all be sold on transfer deadline day (we sold no one and strengthened our first team with Ashley Barnes).

We are now approaching the end of February and your prediction? "the slide to start, culminating in a lot of tears being shed".


We are 2 points clear in 2nd place, with a better goal difference and two home games to look forward to. We are 17 points above you rodents and in 16 days time we will take 3 points off your ramshackle team of misfits and rejects to further strengthen our automatic promotion challenge and at the same time consign you retards to the embarrassment of a bottom-half finish once again, and subsequent financial meltdown when you start you THIRD season in the Championship.

Please tell us all, given your less than successful season-long prediction record, what do you base your predictions on? And also how does it feel to be 17 points behind Burnley?

At the start of the season you were predicting that Burnley minus Charlie Austin would be relegated with no one to score the goals.

A few games into the season you were predicting that Burnley would still be relegated.

A few more games into the season you were predicting that Burnley's good start would slow down and that we would still be relegated.

On 21 September 2013 Burnley went 2nd in the Championship after a 2-1 win at Leeds United, you said it was a false position and we would soon be slip-sliding down the league with injures to our small squad causing ultimate capitulation.

On October 1st Burnley went to the top of the Championship following a 2-0 win at Doncaster Rovers, you once again insisted that injuries and suspensions would catch up with us and we'd drop like a stone.

On the run up to Christmas you ASSURED us that our annual "Christmas Capitulation" combined with injuries to key players would see us fall out of play-off contention and slide toward mid-table as you passed us in the other direction. (On Christmas Day 2013 we were still top of the league and 13 points ahead of you).

In January you claimed that Ings, Vokes and Trippier would be snapped up, that Sean Dyche would jump ship for one of the smaller Premier League clubs and our long awaited decline would begin.

In late January you claimed that we would still be slipping out of the top 6 when our star players would all be sold on transfer deadline day (we sold no one and strengthened our first team with Ashley Barnes).

We are now approaching the end of February and your prediction? "the slide to start, culminating in a lot of tears being shed".


We are 2 points clear in 2nd place, with a better goal difference and two home games to look forward to. We are 17 points above you rodents and in 16 days time we will take 3 points off your ramshackle team of misfits and rejects to further strengthen our automatic promotion challenge and at the same time consign you retards to the embarrassment of a bottom-half finish once again, and subsequent financial meltdown when you start you THIRD season in the Championship.

Please tell us all, given your less than successful season-long prediction record, what do you base your predictions on? And also how does it feel to be 17 points behind Burnley?
You forgot to add mungo mark that your mums got a penis. What you doin on a burnley page anyway. You usually on rovers pages with your pants down whilst uncle Jeffrey plays with you.

Poor old jealous no-dads, they have absolutely nothing to come back with now that their team is sh!te, other than the old tried and tested abuse references.

And here's another example of a pitiful creature who is struggling to accept his new position of being dominated by the Clarets. Don't worry son, it will only sting for a little while.. you'll get used to it.

Rather not bend over and contract some unknown backward disease that your mum gave you. Do you do anything else with your sad life than come on rovers pages. Go to bed mungo mark, your mums waiting with a apple in her mouth. Sithi little boy.

Your optimism strikes me like junk mail addressed to the dead. But make sure you keep coming and predicting things from your fantasy world as your pain when your bet goes down makes things even sweeter.

The only things you've ever told anyone end up being an illustration of your stupidity.
