Burnley won't stray from budget to get deals done

CO-CHAIRMAN Mike Garlick insists that Burnley will not overpay for players in a rush to get deals done before the start of pre-season.

The Clarets are making concerted attempts to strengthen their squad following promotion to the Premier League but are taking a patient approach in the transfer market.

They are yet to agree a fee with West Bromwich Albion for centre back target Craig Dawson and Garlick has stressed that Burnley will work within their budget.

“We have target players, but we also have a target budget and we intend to stick to it,” said Garlick, who has flown out to watch England at the World Cup today.

“The feelers have been put out for targets and we are working hard to bring players in.

“Some things might come off and some things might not.

“A lot of people are away at the moment so it might be the end of the month when things start to come to fruition.

“It might be that not everyone is here for day one, and by day one I mean pre-season rather than the first game of the season. We are looking to invest in the right players, but we will stick to our budget.

“You can throw money at it and even then there are no guarantees of staying up.”

Burnley remain in talks with Danny Ings as they attempt to tie the striker to an extended contract.

Ings has only a year left on his current deal and Southampton are monitoring whether to make a move for the 21-year-old once their new manager is appointed.

But Garlick confirmed that Burnley have received no enquiries for the striker at this stage – from the Saints or anyone else.

“We’ve had no enquiries for him,” he said.

“Danny is a big part of our plans as far as we’re concerned we’re looking forward to him coming back for pre-season.

“That’s all we’re focused on.

“There will be speculation about him and other players, we know that.

“But we’re looking forward to him having a big part to play with us again next season.”

Sticking to the budget. A very little spent well, motivated and managed superbly always beats a fat lazy bloater approach. The latter ring any bells?

Translated as, we expect to get relegated so are paying championship wages, therefore Ings is ouuta here.
On a positive note the directors will be rolling in it so its a win win situation, even when we get a good drubbing

With that approach they won't be signing anyone half decent. Lets be honest, they'll have to pay way overs to get any player to live in the hell hole that is Burnley. A tinpot club on a tinpot budget doesn't belong in the Premier League and will only stay there as long as they did last time. But chin up Dingles it's not all bad, on the plus side your transfer kitty will be a bit higher once Ings inevitably moves onto greener pastures...

New depths of idiocy from the usual suspects. Disregarding a complete lack of knowledge, or any evidence whatsoever about what BFC will or will not spend, the dribble of bile from envious trolls just keeps coming. First - why would a sort of non story attract Rovers like gulls to a municipal dump unless many if not all have been so damaged, so traumatised by our rise and their decline to such a point where obsessive doesn't really do justice to their interest. Then - clairvoyant to a troll, they predict imminent or future doom, the dates vary but inaccurate to a man they keep thinking if they say it often enough it might happen. A desperate chant rattling out of empty heads. Meanwhile, away from this twisted pile of damaged bores, real life shines a light on the carnage that their own clubs recklessness had created. It's like you sort of want to tell this gibbering slavering idiot walking down the exit slip of the motorway not to, but half of you wants to see the look in its face as reality dawns. Keep howling at the moon boys, as the sun shines on Burnley.

Your not making any sense. The contracts we are offering now have Prem wages in them. Ings is still here. The directors invested enough to cover for the losses as a percentage of the net assets and forward cash flow forecast. They will either take up shares as in FFP or take the money back with interest - like you do.

Honestly, just because you are on Sky movies at the moment showing us your dental work as Gollum (or the other one - but neither us actually know do we, sadly) you think your a big cheese. Well, your a little Fromage Frais. My precious.

Great result for the clairvoyant multiple personality disorder suffering fans of Rovers today. Irvine was appointed at WBA which if you notice his surname ends in 'e' - FACT - so is as near as damned Dyche. He was also at Everton who once had pink in their away strip which of you saw under an orange street light could look claret -FACT ! More uncanny predictions that come spookily close from our resident trolls next week.

Yawn.... I know the truth hurts and it's hard to hear but the point still remains and it's a pertinent one at that, tinpot club, tinpot budget and relegation is assured.

Pray tell stalker Oz (yawn) bore troll. On what basis do you and your (yawn) bore troll Burnley stalkers define 'tinpot'? Size seems import to you trolls except you ignore home and away attendances. You invent FA cup titles before it existed and when (yawn) boring Rovers were called something like GirlyWirlyTrolls and could score with their shaved pelvis. Is tinpot only having won the PL? What is tinpot? An empty ground. Looming debt? Delusions of grandeur? Is tinpot (yawn) your arguments that are based on pretence and hope and despair? Please continue to feed your obsession (yawn) Oz as you keep proving the points we make - you are obsessed. A troll. A stalker.

Ring any bells? Are you talking about Mike Garlick - I assume so from his general demeanor in the photo.

Here we have a dingle admitting that success is down to performances on the field.

Ironic given that Burnley FC supporters live in a fantasy world where all of Blackburn's success was down to the financial input of Jack Walker and nothing else.

Oh dear. Jack01 showing he's just a bit short when its needed.

Performance on the field is easier to put together when you a have a disproportionally large fund of money available to buy talent that can outperform others playing in the same division.

'Disproportionally large fund of money available'

You mean like when United and Liverpool both had more expensive squads than Rovers in 1995?

Or do you mean like Burnley will have next season thanks to Sky TV?
