Wade Elliott tips Burnley to surprise in Premier League

WADE Elliott has backed Burnley to be the surprise package of the Premier League – and survive in it.

The winger, left, fired the Clarets up with his Wembley winner the last time they achieved top flight football.

The experience was to be short-lived, with Burnley relegated after just one season.

But five years on Elliott believes the club benefited from that season and thinks Burnley are better equipped – both on and off the field – to not only stay up but surprise the Premier League.

“It will be a brilliant experience for everyone to be involved in,” said the winger.

“The club itself is probably a lot better prepared for the Premier League and the set-up than when we went up, just from the lessons learned from when we did it.

“You would hope they’ve got a really good fighting chance of having a good season next year. They are there on merit, they’ve earned the right to be there and be in that company.

“They showed everyone over the course of last season what a good team they were and they can go into it without much fear.

“There are some really good individuals in the team. They are a much better team than maybe people coming up against them will give them credit for.

“They have every reason to not be fearful. There’s no pressure on them, they’ll have fantastic backing from the town.”

And Elliott believes hosting Chelsea in their first game is the ideal start, with echoes of their 2009 home opener against Manchester United, when Robbie Blake scored in a 1-0 win that got Turf Moor rocking.

“Chelsea will probably be comparable to our first home game against United,” said the 35-year-old, who has been reunited with his first Burnley boss, Steve Cotterill, at Bristol City.

“It’s a brilliant fixture to start. The atmosphere at Turf Moor next year will be comparable to anything anywhere in the Premier League.

“The lads probably tasted it at the end of last season when the big games were building up, but when it’s packed and the crowd get behind you it’s a brilliant place to play your football.

“If we go over teams that have done well invariably they have good home form, so that’s a great opportunity for Burnley. When the crowd get behind the team at Turf Moor it really does generate some atmosphere.

“Certainly for the first half of the season our home record was brilliant.

“It’s a great opportunity for Burnley to pick up some points.”

He added: “There’s a fantastic squad there and from speaking to a couple of the lads they’ve got a really good team ethic and spirit and togetherness.

“We came very close to pulling it off last time so with all the factors that they’ve got going in their favour they’ve got to be really optimistic.”

Learning? And yet all the backroom staff have since changed, you still have a manager with no premier league experience and woeful performance in the transfer market thus far. That said, you might scrape it this season with the right attitude and a bit of luck. If you are so lucky, after that you'll fall back into oblivion and have achieved nothing along the way in any case. Just a matter of time. Tickety tock.

Good to know Wade rate's our chances and says that the atmosphere at a packed Turf Moor could help us stay up this time.

Wade says "our home record in the first half of the PL league season was very good"....he obviously means before Coyle jumped ship and we got the clown Laws to deflate everyone's hopes, fans and players alike.

Wade rightly goes on about the atmosphere, but it is different this time. He probably does not realise home fans have been kicked out of the CFS by our own greedy directors.

Yes, the atmosphere at the Turf will be great.....for the AWAY fans.

Shame on the Burnley directors.

So now on two separate posts you have indicated that Burnley might 'scrape it this season', ha ha ha ha even Captain Negative Blackburn goon thinks we will stop up.

Quick question for all you nay-saying (Or should that be neigh-saying) Blackburn monkeys and BE HONEST - Would you like to swap places with Burnley - In other words be in the Premier League, be facing Chelsea instead of Cardiff, playing in front of full houses every week against the best teams and players in the world?

We all know the answer don't we, which is why you are constantly infecting every article trying in vain to pour your own Blackburn brand of negativity over everything.

Blackburn fans, you are basically like the spoilt kid who has a small toy that he doesn't like, so you are trying to break your bigger and better brother's nice new shiny toy in order to make you feel better and give your sad lives some meaning.

Didn't you bellsmashes say that in 2009?

How did that one turn out?

Were you also singing:

'We'll never play you again'?

'Jelly and Ice cream when Burnley go down'?

How did all that go for you - did you cry on March 9th when you realised that the massive financially-given gulf between the two teams has been evaporated, gone, extinguished, is no more, is an ex gulf?

Blackburn - no money, no class and no **** chance of promotion.

Nope. I said you might. IF the players you have develop to another level (since you haven't attracted any quality), IF they show the right attitude throughout, IF the squad stays largely injury free AGAIN and then with a bit of luck sprinkled on top. Lot of ifs there, so while not impossible I'd say very unlikely and either way will achieve nothing as it's nailed on you'd come down the following season anyway. Personally I want to see you scratch it then try and invest so you find what the downward transition is really like rather than just staying as is and watching your directors pocket the cash. No fun for anyone and no turmoil, just fat directors.

A couple of weeks ago you were convinced Burnley were coming straight back down and now it appears that you have acknowledged that we probably will stop up but if we do then 'it's nailed on you'd come down the following season anyway'.

Point me to where I said probably stop up??

Would I like to swap places with Bumley? Not with everything that goes with it (place, ground, fans, training facilities, shirt colours etc etc) though I would like Rovers to be in the Prem every now and again (not this coming season as we wouldn't be ready but the following season would be good). The difference is if we did we'd look like we belong whereas you look like Swindon one-season-visiting hillbillies. Either way I think both clubs can only survive for 2 seasons at most as things stand. That's just the way it is. Accept it and you'll take your ultimate fall back to the gutter that bit easier. Hope that answers your question.

So now on two separate posts you have indicated that Burnley might 'scrape it this season', ha ha ha ha even Captain Negative Blackburn goon thinks we will stop up.

Quick question for all you nay-saying (Or should that be neigh-saying) Blackburn monkeys and BE HONEST - Would you like to swap places with Burnley - In other words be in the Premier League, be facing Chelsea instead of Cardiff, playing in front of full houses every week against the best teams and players in the world?

We all know the answer don't we, which is why you are constantly infecting every article trying in vain to pour your own Blackburn brand of negativity over everything.

Blackburn fans, you are basically like the spoilt kid who has a small toy that he doesn't like, so you are trying to break your bigger and better brother's nice new shiny toy in order to make you feel better and give your sad lives some meaning.
Nope. I said you might. IF the players you have develop to another level (since you haven't attracted any quality), IF they show the right attitude throughout, IF the squad stays largely injury free AGAIN and then with a bit of luck sprinkled on top. Lot of ifs there, so while not impossible I'd say very unlikely and either way will achieve nothing as it's nailed on you'd come down the following season anyway. Personally I want to see you scratch it then try and invest so you find what the downward transition is really like rather than just staying as is and watching your directors pocket the cash. No fun for anyone and no turmoil, just fat directors.
Why didn't you answer the question in that rambling diatribe?

WOULD YOU LIKE TO SWAP PLACES WITH BURNLEY AND BE IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE THIS SEASON?

A couple of weeks ago you were convinced Burnley were coming straight back down and now it appears that you have acknowledged that we probably will stop up but if we do then 'it's nailed on you'd come down the following season anyway'.

Thanks for the vote of confidence Tom (AP4B), but please answer the above question (I have put it in capitals for you in case you missed it last time around).
Point me to where I said probably stop up??

Would I like to swap places with Bumley? Not with everything that goes with it (place, ground, fans, training facilities, shirt colours etc etc) though I would like Rovers to be in the Prem every now and again (not this coming season as we wouldn't be ready but the following season would be good). The difference is if we did we'd look like we belong whereas you look like Swindon one-season-visiting hillbillies. Either way I think both clubs can only survive for 2 seasons at most as things stand. That's just the way it is. Accept it and you'll take your ultimate fall back to the gutter that bit easier. Hope that answers your question.
It does actually and it is more honest than I thought possible so who's a clever boy then? - you ARE jealous of Burnley and you DO wish that your pathetic team could emulate what your bigger and better rivals have done - it must be pretty therapeutic of you to admit this.

No Burnley fan is under any illusions how difficult it will be next year, but how do you know that we will only survive a maximum of two seasons? Look at Stoke City a a prime example, they have survived for several years without once broaching the top half (Until last year) and hardly being in a relegation battle - how do you know we can't use them as a benchmark?

Explain how, Four weeks before the season has even kicked off, we look like Swindon Town?

The facts are in the lowly Second Division there are at least eight more clubs with stronger squads, more money and a much better chance of promotion to the Premier League (Where we are btw) than your boys - Cardiff, Norwich, Fulham, ,Derby, Wigan, Forest, Reading, Wolves, so what makes you think that you can turn your under-achieving losers into a side that can make an assault on the league?

Maybe it is your inspirational manager Gary Mogodon Bowyer?

Norwich, Fuham and Cardiff spent between them £82 million last summer and their reward for splashing the cash?

Trips to dumps such as Brentford, Rotherham and Blackburn this coming season.

We will be fine, worry about your own side using their last remaining transfer budget (For the foreseeable future) to pay off the overpaid, millionaire leeches that you have created.

Fair play but by your very own logic I think you'll find there are 19 other clubs far better placed than yourselves to stay in what you consider to be the promised land. A land where you simply make up the numbers and hang on until your grim and certain early death.

But you're right, it's unfair to compare you with Swindon as at least they had a go by signing Jan Åge Fjørtoft. Wonder how they managed to have international scouts and money to invest plus could get internationals to come to Swindon, whereas you seemingly can't even retain your players.

And sorry for not providing a full answer - when you say Stoke I think you mean the only example. Also factor in to this Pulis and latterly Hughes plus regular attendances of 27000 and you're not in their league. This will be confirmed for you in the near future....

This must be the retards division of the bFC supporters club as all on here appear to be on ritalin . These special needers think they will achieve great things with this very average squad
Kightly, couldn't get a game at stoke when they were hovering just out of the bottom 3
Jones who couldn't get a game at Wigan when they were hovering just out of the bottom 3
Reid, who couldn't get a game at WBA when they were hovering just above the bottom 3 and Matty Taylor, who couldn't get a game at west ham when they were hovering just out of the bottom 3
So you put it all together and these ritalin mindbenders think we will be in a champions league spot.

So now on two separate posts you have indicated that Burnley might 'scrape it this season', ha ha ha ha even Captain Negative Blackburn goon thinks we will stop up.

Quick question for all you nay-saying (Or should that be neigh-saying) Blackburn monkeys and BE HONEST - Would you like to swap places with Burnley - In other words be in the Premier League, be facing Chelsea instead of Cardiff, playing in front of full houses every week against the best teams and players in the world?

We all know the answer don't we, which is why you are constantly infecting every article trying in vain to pour your own Blackburn brand of negativity over everything.

Blackburn fans, you are basically like the spoilt kid who has a small toy that he doesn't like, so you are trying to break your bigger and better brother's nice new shiny toy in order to make you feel better and give your sad lives some meaning.
Nope. I said you might. IF the players you have develop to another level (since you haven't attracted any quality), IF they show the right attitude throughout, IF the squad stays largely injury free AGAIN and then with a bit of luck sprinkled on top. Lot of ifs there, so while not impossible I'd say very unlikely and either way will achieve nothing as it's nailed on you'd come down the following season anyway. Personally I want to see you scratch it then try and invest so you find what the downward transition is really like rather than just staying as is and watching your directors pocket the cash. No fun for anyone and no turmoil, just fat directors.
Why didn't you answer the question in that rambling diatribe?

WOULD YOU LIKE TO SWAP PLACES WITH BURNLEY AND BE IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE THIS SEASON?

A couple of weeks ago you were convinced Burnley were coming straight back down and now it appears that you have acknowledged that we probably will stop up but if we do then 'it's nailed on you'd come down the following season anyway'.

Thanks for the vote of confidence Tom (AP4B), but please answer the above question (I have put it in capitals for you in case you missed it last time around).
Point me to where I said probably stop up??

Would I like to swap places with Bumley? Not with everything that goes with it (place, ground, fans, training facilities, shirt colours etc etc) though I would like Rovers to be in the Prem every now and again (not this coming season as we wouldn't be ready but the following season would be good). The difference is if we did we'd look like we belong whereas you look like Swindon one-season-visiting hillbillies. Either way I think both clubs can only survive for 2 seasons at most as things stand. That's just the way it is. Accept it and you'll take your ultimate fall back to the gutter that bit easier. Hope that answers your question.
It does actually and it is more honest than I thought possible so who's a clever boy then? - you ARE jealous of Burnley and you DO wish that your pathetic team could emulate what your bigger and better rivals have done - it must be pretty therapeutic of you to admit this.

No Burnley fan is under any illusions how difficult it will be next year, but how do you know that we will only survive a maximum of two seasons? Look at Stoke City a a prime example, they have survived for several years without once broaching the top half (Until last year) and hardly being in a relegation battle - how do you know we can't use them as a benchmark?

Explain how, Four weeks before the season has even kicked off, we look like Swindon Town?

Fair play but by your very own logic I think you'll find there are 19 other clubs far better placed than yourselves to stay in what you consider to be the promised land. A land where you simply make up the numbers and hang on until your grim and certain early death.

But you're right, it's unfair to compare you with Swindon as at least they had a go by signing Jan Åge Fjørtoft. Wonder how they managed to have international scouts and money to invest plus could get internationals to come to Swindon, whereas you seemingly can't even retain your players.

Well we will have an average attendance next season of 20k plus, as we will for every season we are in the PL, so not much difference in the crowd situation.
'Factor in Pulis and latterly Hughes' fair comments re: Pulis but Hughes managed to take down an expensive QPR side after being sacked by Man City etc, but anyway we have Dyche and I would prefer him to either Pulis OR Hughes.
Jan Age Fjortoft? What a quality example PMSL, bet you Danny Ings scores more than that donkey did for Swindon.

Come on TTT, I thought you could do better than lame-**** comparisons with sides that got relegated from the top flight even before you goons won the big one.

Ok, you're on, Ings has to score more than 12 this season (for Bumley, not Southampton).

If 35% isn't much difference then that might explain why you think you're going to stay up.

And I think you might also be missing the fact that by this stage after their promotion, Stoke had already signed:

Dave Kitson - £5,500,000 from Reading
Seyi Olofinjana - £3,000,000 from Wolverhampton Wanderers
Thomas Sorensen - 3 year deal
Abdoulaye Faye - £2,250,000 from Newcastle United
Ibrahima Sonko - £2,000,000 from Reading (fee could rise to £2,250,000)
Danny Higginbotham - undisclosed from Sunderland
Tom Soares - £1,250,000 from Crystal Palace
Michael Tonge - £2,000,000 from Sheffield United

All that in 2008 money. Do you really think Bumley can be taken seriously when you haven't even got the ambition of Stoke?

If 35% isn't much difference then that might explain why you think you're going to stay up. And I think you might also be missing the fact that by this stage after their promotion, Stoke had already signed: Dave Kitson - £5,500,000 from Reading Seyi Olofinjana - £3,000,000 from Wolverhampton Wanderers Thomas Sorensen - 3 year deal Abdoulaye Faye - £2,250,000 from Newcastle United Ibrahima Sonko - £2,000,000 from Reading (fee could rise to £2,250,000) Danny Higginbotham - undisclosed from Sunderland Tom Soares - £1,250,000 from Crystal Palace Michael Tonge - £2,000,000 from Sheffield United All that in 2008 money. Do you really think Bumley can be taken seriously when you haven't even got the ambition of Stoke? TurfMoorTom

Reid, who couldn't get a game at WBA when they were hovering just above the bottom 3 and Matty Taylor, who couldn't get a game at west ham when they were hovering just out of the bottom 3
So you put it all together and these ritalin mindbenders think we will be in a champions league spot.

Matt Taylor - 26 league games in the PL last season for West Ham

Reid 16 games in the PL last season for WBA

Jones - Played 29 games PL games for Wigan

Kightly played 22 PL games the season before last for Stoke before going out on loan

So basically you put all this together and yet again you are talking out of your poo passage.
What are you trying to prove to yourself with those stats? They'll have played 38 more by ths time next year but doesn't change the fact that relegation is nigh on certain.

So relegation is certain for Burnley is it? - who says so - YOU?

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

After last season's bumper wrong prediction bonanza from you and your fellow Blackburn numpties then - here is a few examples to whet your whistle:

Our bubble would burst

Injuries will hamper us

Dyche is leaving, followed by Ings and then Trippier

Blackburn will meet us in the play-off finals

You will shut us up on March 9th

And now you think we are 'Certain' to go down, excuse me if I rush out and put some money on us staying up now.

Just...so.....jealou

So now on two separate posts you have indicated that Burnley might 'scrape it this season', ha ha ha ha even Captain Negative Blackburn goon thinks we will stop up.

Quick question for all you nay-saying (Or should that be neigh-saying) Blackburn monkeys and BE HONEST - Would you like to swap places with Burnley - In other words be in the Premier League, be facing Chelsea instead of Cardiff, playing in front of full houses every week against the best teams and players in the world?

We all know the answer don't we, which is why you are constantly infecting every article trying in vain to pour your own Blackburn brand of negativity over everything.

Blackburn fans, you are basically like the spoilt kid who has a small toy that he doesn't like, so you are trying to break your bigger and better brother's nice new shiny toy in order to make you feel better and give your sad lives some meaning.
Nope. I said you might. IF the players you have develop to another level (since you haven't attracted any quality), IF they show the right attitude throughout, IF the squad stays largely injury free AGAIN and then with a bit of luck sprinkled on top. Lot of ifs there, so while not impossible I'd say very unlikely and either way will achieve nothing as it's nailed on you'd come down the following season anyway. Personally I want to see you scratch it then try and invest so you find what the downward transition is really like rather than just staying as is and watching your directors pocket the cash. No fun for anyone and no turmoil, just fat directors.
Why didn't you answer the question in that rambling diatribe?

WOULD YOU LIKE TO SWAP PLACES WITH BURNLEY AND BE IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE THIS SEASON?

A couple of weeks ago you were convinced Burnley were coming straight back down and now it appears that you have acknowledged that we probably will stop up but if we do then 'it's nailed on you'd come down the following season anyway'.

Thanks for the vote of confidence Tom (AP4B), but please answer the above question (I have put it in capitals for you in case you missed it last time around).
Point me to where I said probably stop up??

Would I like to swap places with Bumley? Not with everything that goes with it (place, ground, fans, training facilities, shirt colours etc etc) though I would like Rovers to be in the Prem every now and again (not this coming season as we wouldn't be ready but the following season would be good). The difference is if we did we'd look like we belong whereas you look like Swindon one-season-visiting hillbillies. Either way I think both clubs can only survive for 2 seasons at most as things stand. That's just the way it is. Accept it and you'll take your ultimate fall back to the gutter that bit easier. Hope that answers your question.
It does actually and it is more honest than I thought possible so who's a clever boy then? - you ARE jealous of Burnley and you DO wish that your pathetic team could emulate what your bigger and better rivals have done - it must be pretty therapeutic of you to admit this.

No Burnley fan is under any illusions how difficult it will be next year, but how do you know that we will only survive a maximum of two seasons? Look at Stoke City a a prime example, they have survived for several years without once broaching the top half (Until last year) and hardly being in a relegation battle - how do you know we can't use them as a benchmark?

Explain how, Four weeks before the season has even kicked off, we look like Swindon Town?

The facts are in the lowly Second Division there are at least eight more clubs with stronger squads, more money and a much better chance of promotion to the Premier League (Where we are btw) than your boys - Cardiff, Norwich, Fulham, ,Derby, Wigan, Forest, Reading, Wolves, so what makes you think that you can turn your under-achieving losers into a side that can make an assault on the league?

Maybe it is your inspirational manager Gary Mogodon Bowyer?

STAYING DOWN FOR EVER - LOVE BURNLEY X
Fair play but by your very own logic I think you'll find there are 19 other clubs far better placed than yourselves to stay in what you consider to be the promised land. A land where you simply make up the numbers and hang on until your grim and certain early death.

But you're right, it's unfair to compare you with Swindon as at least they had a go by signing Jan Åge Fjørtoft. Wonder how they managed to have international scouts and money to invest plus could get internationals to come to Swindon, whereas you seemingly can't even retain your players.
And sorry for not providing a full answer - when you say Stoke I think you mean the only example. Also factor in to this Pulis and latterly Hughes plus regular attendances of 27000 and you're not in their league. This will be confirmed for you in the near future....
Well we will have an average attendance next season of 20k plus, as we will for every season we are in the PL, so not much difference in the crowd situation.
'Factor in Pulis and latterly Hughes' fair comments re: Pulis but Hughes managed to take down an expensive QPR side after being sacked by Man City etc, but anyway we have Dyche and I would prefer him to either Pulis OR Hughes.
Jan Age Fjortoft? What a quality example PMSL, bet you Danny Ings scores more than that donkey did for Swindon.

Come on TTT, I thought you could do better than lame-**** comparisons with sides that got relegated from the top flight even before you goons won the big one.

Ok, you're on, Ings has to score more than 12 this season (for Bumley, not Southampton).

If 35% isn't much difference then that might explain why you think you're going to stay up.

And I think you might also be missing the fact that by this stage after their promotion, Stoke had already signed:

Dave Kitson - £5,500,000 from Reading
Seyi Olofinjana - £3,000,000 from Wolverhampton Wanderers
Thomas Sorensen - 3 year deal
Abdoulaye Faye - £2,250,000 from Newcastle United
Ibrahima Sonko - £2,000,000 from Reading (fee could rise to £2,250,000)
Danny Higginbotham - undisclosed from Sunderland
Tom Soares - £1,250,000 from Crystal Palace
Michael Tonge - £2,000,000 from Sheffield United

All that in 2008 money. Do you really think Bumley can be taken seriously when you haven't even got the ambition of Stoke?
And??

There are four weeks until the start of the season and six weeks to go before the Transfer window slams shut - don't you worry about us sunshine, you worry about the fact that you can't afford to sign anyone who is any good for your mid-table Second Division side.

I also couldn't give a shiny **** if people take us seriously or not, one thing is for sure we are taken a hell of a lot more seriously than you set of chumps languishing in the Second Tier, getting beaten by Brentford and Bournemouth et al.

It's one sad Blackburn fan and he hasn't been eligible for anything but DLA for years. His meds alone are enough to fund an intensive care bed but don't expect this slacker to care, parasite and stalker - paranoid, fantasist, friendless isolated and unfortunately using our club as therapy. On the plus side, he's so consumed now by hate and bitterness it's likely if we win more than 10 games he''ll run headlong despairing into a bus.

What, a fortune from your work office phone? Just dial 9 for external and then the phone number like anyone with an office job does. Unless of course you simply thought there was some kudos is highlighting the fact you had a job and had managed to get as far as Gibraltar. Neither are particularly impressive but if it makes you feel bigger go for it and ignore the fact you sound like a right c0ck in the process.

Neither are particularly impressive but if it makes you feel bigger go for it and ignore the fact you sound like a right c0ck in the process. TurfMoorTom

Burnley, George Orghanis ironing board to the dole and tell them they are not abiding by JSA rules looking for work due to being on here constantly typing BS even Shrinks are baffled by. I would but I'm in Gibraltar and would cost me a fortune during office hours. UTC.

Hurts doesn't it - a man with a job, a life, interests, probably goes outside in daylight too. Compare that to your sad multiple ID daily trolling every item, sat indoors, online, a waste of DNA, your life of obsessed stalking to vent your Burnley hate. That hurts a sad wastrel because you have nothing. No strength, no dignity, billy no mates sat in a Blackburn bedsit. What a waste of potential. What a sad fool you became Gollum.

Turn the lights off and remember to extinguish all cigarettes, no smoke alarms in your household are there dim boy. And could we have a 'lancs pensioner' post soon please. Not got that one out since your Sunday meltdown. And do be careful, nobody calls round so don't be thinking dark thoughts as getting you out may be smelly.

My wife's Gibraltarian thanks. You on the other hand are a waste of space. Must be great having different users names in order to amuse yourself due to having no friends in run down Shadsworth. Your only escape is going to the pharmacists for your daily medication to keep your mental disorder from getting out of hand where you become a danger unto your self. I bet they wont even allow you on Fleawood Park neither even some No Dads Fans think you a 1st class W**ker.

Since when was ambition linked with spending millions on a completely new team? Lots of funds has been working well for blackburn last couple of seasons...

The team we have is being reinforced, the team that got to the prem and the team that will stay up.

Now back to the blackburn section with you all.
