Burnley hero Britton believes Clarets can spring Premier League surprise

CLARETS hero Ian Britton thinks Burnley can catch his old club Chelsea cold on the opening day of the Premier League season.

Burnley’s return to the top flight starts with a taxing home game against Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea, with the game scheduled to take place on August 16 barring a switch for television.

The Clarets will be hoping for a repeat of their shock victory over Manchester United in their first home match in the Premier League in 2009/10, and Britton thinks it may not be the worst time to play Chelsea.

The 60-year-old, who is battling cancer, made more than 250 appearances for the Blues in a decade at Stamford Bridge before becoming famous in East Lancashire as the man whose goal kept Burnley in the Football League in 1987.

“It’s about a tough game as you could get to start the season, but you don’t always know what will happen in the first game,” said Britton.

“Teams are finding their feet and apart from Cesc Fabregas coming in we don’t know yet who will be coming and going at Chelsea.

“It will be difficult against Chelsea, but Burnley beat Manchester United 1-0 with that fantastic Robbie Blake volley last time in the Premier League. I can’t see why they can’t do it again.

“Even if they could get a point in that game, it would really stand them in good stead.”

Britton has great affection for both clubs but remains based in Burnley and admits he will be cheering on the Clarets when Chelsea arrive at Turf Moor.

“I’ve got good memories of Chelsea but I will be leaning slightly towards Burnley,” said the Scot, who married his partner Eileen in February.

“I did the half-time draw at the end of the season, and when Burnley got promoted I said to put my name down to do the half-time draw for the Chelsea game, so hopefully I will get the call.

“Promotion was another fantastic achievement for Burnley.

“It’s important to start well and they have some difficult games early on.

“But Burnley didn’t lose many games at home last season, defensively they were very secure. I think they conceded pretty much half as many as they did the season before.

“I know it will be different in the Premier League but hopefully they can do well again.”

Well it may be a surprise to some people that you will only concede 5 VS Chelsea and it may also be a surprise that you have very few points before xmas and sit bottom of the league.

But it won't be us Rovers fans :)

Always great to hear from Ian. And as a successful pro his views matter. Here's hoping that Chelsea are busy bedding in super star purchasers. We may snatch something from them. The next home game, Man Utd, they will be busy learning much about the new manager and the reported £200m of new talent. Might grab something in that too. We'd expect to lose home and away against the top 8, get a result in 25% of games against the middle 8 and 75% against the bottom 4. We'll stay up if we do.

I have to laugh at those poor Blackburn fans with their weak banter, when in reality they would love to be playing Chelsea instead of crappy Cardiff City despite what they say.

Burnley will keep on confounding the critics and the nay-sayers and will stay up comfortably in my opinion - look at Hull and Palace, two sides who went up from the Championship far less impressively than Burnley did and who both stayed up easily.

As for those Blackburn fans - I see you are offering £10k a week to League One players to replace Rhodes, really learning your FFP lesson aren't you? PMSL can't wait for your transfer embargo.

Unfortunately Blackburn don't have £200 million and yes, I agree, BRFC are doomed next season.

And how I will laugh at you Barry when you can't buy any more players and you are floundering around in the lower reaches of Division Two.

Super Claret says...

"Burnley manager Sean Dyche has been handed a new deal at Turf Moor and could be set to shine in England's top flight.

Nicknamed the ‘Ginger Mourinho’, 42-year-old Dyche was instrumental in the Clarets' push towards the Premier League last term, during which they finished eights points clear of third-placed Derby County - after initially being as short as 5/1 to be relegated from the Championship.

When Dyche was brought in at Turf Moor, Burnley were a lowly 14th in the Championship. Their turnaround has said it all.

The next step for the 42-year-old will undoubtedly be an important one: a hard summer's work in the transfer market, bringing the right players in to aid the Clarets in their first Premier League campaign since 2009/10.

Dyche and his squad will have to hit the ground running, of course, as Jose Mourinho's Chelsea side visit on the opening day of the league season, before an eye-catching clash with Manchester United two weeks later (Swansea City are the opponents in between).

For now, though, Burnley have made their most important singing of the summer: keeping Dyche on board."

BFC are destined for a relegation dog fight. Last season we rode the luck donkey until it's legs fell off, just enough for it to fall over the promotion line. No team can ride the luck donkey two seasons on the trot. I'm trying to be positive here but I feel our performance will be so poor, they'd be better off relegating us two divisions.

Its a funny thing about predictions. Repeating them over and over and over and over and over, doesn't make them any more or less likely to occur. So why repeat them?

Because he can't help it.

It's his poor man's crack.

Still, I hope he's being well paid for the amount of time he spends on here and he's probably due a long-term presentation; a watch or something for more than five years a-WUM-ing and a-TROLL-ing. And his consistency is to be applauded. He's consistent in that he's never got one thing correct yet. Not one thing - IN MORE THAN FIVE YEARS! Takes some doing that, you know.

I think all of his many identities are a bit embarassed today after their only e hissy fit when the fixtures came out caused mass amusement in Burnley. Never have so many dim but totally sane Rovers followed a bipolar schitzo over the cliff of footballing credibility. Squeals of absolute outrage as it dawned on them that finally, after all their years of pretending we didn't matter, we really do and that really hurts. Decades of denial all summed up in Chelseaat home. DDon't care much for FakeMTV or whichever multiple IDs he posts under but he piped a little tune that led the blue and white fools into complete and utter embarassment. Thanks Tom you're not all bad.

"Burnley manager Sean Dyche has been handed a new deal at Turf Moor and could be set to shine in England's top flight.

Nicknamed the ‘Ginger Mourinho’, 42-year-old Dyche was instrumental in the Clarets' push towards the Premier League last term, during which they finished eights points clear of third-placed Derby County - after initially being as short as 5/1 to be relegated from the Championship.

When Dyche was brought in at Turf Moor, Burnley were a lowly 14th in the Championship. Their turnaround has said it all.

The next step for the 42-year-old will undoubtedly be an important one: a hard summer's work in the transfer market, bringing the right players in to aid the Clarets in their first Premier League campaign since 2009/10.

Dyche and his squad will have to hit the ground running, of course, as Jose Mourinho's Chelsea side visit on the opening day of the league season, before an eye-catching clash with Manchester United two weeks later (Swansea City are the opponents in between).

For now, though, Burnley have made their most important singing of the summer: keeping Dyche on board."

Nicknamed the ‘Ginger Mourinho’, 42-year-old Dyche was instrumental in the Clarets' push towards the Premier League last term, during which they finished eights points clear of third-placed Derby County - after initially being as short as 5/1 to be relegated from the Championship. When Dyche was brought in at Turf Moor, Burnley were a lowly 14th in the Championship. Their turnaround has said it all. The next step for the 42-year-old will undoubtedly be an important one: a hard summer's work in the transfer market, bringing the right players in to aid the Clarets in their first Premier League campaign since 2009/10. Dyche and his squad will have to hit the ground running, of course, as Jose Mourinho's Chelsea side visit on the opening day of the league season, before an eye-catching clash with Manchester United two weeks later (Swansea City are the opponents in between). For now, though, Burnley have made their most important singing of the summer: keeping Dyche on board."[/p][/quote]THE CLARETS HAVE ALWAYS MOVED TO A DIFFERENT TUNE TO THE REST ALL OF THE BIG TEAMS HAVE BEEN DELT WITH BY THE TEAM FROM THE SMALL MILL EAST LANCASHIRE TOWN IN THE PAST.HOW MANY TIMES HAVE PEOPLE WRITTEN BUNLEY OFF ITS THE SAME AS IT WAS IN THE GREAT DAYS OF THE EARLY 1960S WHEN THE CLARET AND BLUE OF BURNLEY WERE AMONG THE MOST FEARED COLOURS IN THE LAND WHEN HARRYS MEN FLASHED ACROSS THE GROUNDS OF ENGLAND AND EUROPE LIKE A STREAK OF CLARET AND BLUE LIGHTNING PUTTING FEAR INTO THE LIKES OF ARESNAL LIVERPOOL MAN UTD SPURS WOLVES ETC CHEALSEA WERE NOBODYS BACK THEN NO ONES GOING TO LIKE COMING TO A HOSTILE TURMOOR FILLED TO THE RAFTERS WITH THE WHOLE TOWN BEHIND THE LADS LETS SEE HOW THE FOREIGN IMPORTS LIKE DEALING WITH A BIG TANKING CENTER FORWARD IN SAM VOKES AND A WET COLD EAST LANCASHIRE EVENING I DONT CARE WHAT ANYONE SAYS BURNLEY CAN AND WILL COPE,PEOPLE MAY WELL SAY IVE LOST THE PLOT BUT DONT RULE ANOTHER SEASON OF EUROPEAN FOOTBALL OUT IN THE NEAR FUTURE UP THE CLARETS LONG LIVE TURFMOOR Burnley59/60
