Dave Burnley: It was like watching Barcelona at the Turf

This Is Lancashire: Scott Arfield strikes for the Clarets, who were just like Barcelona according to Dave Burnley Scott Arfield strikes for the Clarets, who were just like Barcelona according to Dave Burnley

IT was former manager Stan Ternent who came out with the reality check comparison quote of ‘it’s Burnley not Barcelona’ to emphasise the vast gulf in financial resources available to each club in order to gain success on the pitch.

This was perfectly demonstrated last Tuesday when Barca eased past Manchester City in the first leg of the Champions League last 16.

For the first half at Turf Moor on Saturday you would have been forgiven for thinking that the Catalan side had extended their stay in the region, donned claret and blue shirts, and made a guest appearance for Burnley.

I realise the magnitude of that statement – but really and truly it was that good.

Now I know that any mention of the ‘P’ word is probably banned by manager Sean Dyche and his playing squad but that doesn’t stop the rest of us from speculating about whether or not our dream will come true.

Regular readers may or may not remember my column published on November 19 last year.

In it I wrote how I personally divide the season into three phases in an attempt to work out how many points are required to achieve our ultimate aim of promotion.

Back then after approximately a third of the season and 15 games played, we were two points clear at the top of the table.

However, that is where I advised a note of caution for the second phase that I designated as the end of February, which is where we are now.

The reason being that Burnley were having to face what I considered much tougher fixtures making the points harder to come by.

Well I am delighted to say that target of 60 points that I set has been surpassed and provides a solid springboard for our third and final phase as we go for the big push.

There’s 14 games left and 42 points up for grabs and although Hull City gained promotion with a second-placed finish of 79 points last year I would regard that total as a one off.

A figure in the mid-80s might be the requirement this time around, or another 22 points.

Our form throughout the last seven months has shown that the prize is within our grasp.

It’s going to take another mighty effort from the players and fans alike if we are to succeed.

The stakes are high but the reward far greater, there can be no bigger motivation.

Claiming that this blatant truth-article is the reason your ribs hurt is obviously another bloody lie. We know that everyone who comes across you gives you a right good kicking and that you've been done in again. We know you. You'll have earned it by just being yourself.

Nice article Dave.

If it wasn't you sitting behind me on Saturday, then there's another bloke who said the same.

Living a long way from the Turf, I can't make it too often, but my brother will also be coming a long distance on Saturday, cos he said 'I've never seen Barcelona play'!

A delusion of grandeur is the fixed, false belief that one possesses superior qualities such as genius, fame, omnipotence, or wealth. It is most often a symptom of schizophrenia, but can also be a symptom found in psychotic or bipolar disorders, as well as dementia (such as Alzheimer’s).

Burnley in an automatic promotion spot, being compared to Barcelona, 17 massive points clear of the rodents, smashing 3 past Forest in 35 minutes, and needing only 22 points to secure promotion. It's no wonder the no-dads are choking on their own rage.

Brilliant response.

Yeah when. The difference is that I am very confident that we can take apart ANYONE in this division. Our performance on Saturday against a previously unbeaten Forest was simply breathtaking. We absolutely smashed them, particularly in the first half - we play like that we WILL get promoted, as no team in this league can live with Burnley's attacking play, and I include Leicester in that as well.

It's hilarious watching you lot squirm at our progress and achievements this season all the while playing it down with comments like "You're only 17 points clear of us", tremendous fella, honestly. The article isn't saying we are as good as Barcelona, it's saying we PLAYED like Barcelona on Saturday, if you'd have watched the game you would agree we were awesome.
As for the 9th March, derbies are unlike usual league matches, fiercely contested and generally any team can win. I do hope we can take three points; partly to end the run, but mainly to keep ourselves in the automatic positions because that's all that matters now. I, as would every other claret I've spoke to, take a defeat at Ewood if it meant winning automatic promotion. As for you lot, well, this is your last chance to win anything remotely meaningful at the end of another season in Burnley's shadows.
