Suzanne Geldard: Deadline day business at Turf Moor may prove decisive for Clarets

GOOD things come to those who wait, and it is fair to say Burnley could not have left it much longer in putting the final touches to their Premier League squad.

An extension was granted beyond the official 11pm deadline thanks to the emergence of the ‘deal sheet’, explaining why Jim White appeared late in the day at Sky Sports News HQ to wait for deals to squeeze dramatically over the line, while producers must surely have had a pow-wow about the value of having heckled reporters outside the grounds.

But that’s another story.

Burnley had signalled their intention to the Premier League to sign Michael Keane on loan from Manchester United after holding talks as “the clock ticked down” – that well-worn transfer deadline day phrase. Sleep was lost while an extra two hours were gained to submit all the paperwork.

But Burnley have not been caught napping.

Some supporters have questioned why the club – why any club – waits until transfer deadline day itself to complete their business, when they have had three months beforehand to get organised.

But like a game of blackjack you sometimes have to wait for other parties to show their hand before you decide whether to stick or twist.

Take the deal for George Boyd, for example. It was not until the eve of the Manchester United game that Burnley were made aware of the attacking midfielder’s availability.

It was only then that Steve Bruce had decided that it was unlikely the Scotland international would be part of his regular first team plans for the season and offered up the opportunity for him to move on rather than loiter in the lower echelons of his 25-man squad.

From there, Burnley acted quickly, and tied Boyd to a three-year deal on Monday.

The wait could prove wise in other ways too.

Three games into the Premier League season would arguably have given Dyche and his staff a better idea of what was needed than before a ball was kicked.

Monday’s business was undoubtedly the most stressful, but it could prove to be the most significant.

Yes, can;t wait for January myself - Burnley have several million pounds to spend improving our PREMIER LEAGUE team.

In the inbred world of Blackburn meanwhile - FFP kicks in and drybums you all while you have to bend over and take it - no new players in, not allowed to buy anyone, need to sell your highest earners (INCLUDING JORDAN RHODES for significantly less than you paid for them).

We finally agree on something Beano - January is going to be **** awesome!!

Have to agree with the Claret above.

For us Blackburn fans January simply doesn't bear thinking about. We are indeed going to be de-panted in the most humiliating way possible and our pale scabby backsides are going to be exposed allowing every tom, dick and harry to give us a roasting. We stand to lose more than just our dignity, we'll be unable to refuse offers for players meaning the loss of any remaining quality we have at bargain basement prices, the likes of Rhodes and Cairney will be put on display in the club shop with Whoops stickers on their furrowed brows. The word firesale will never have been so apt.

Why do you keep posting on here? Really, why? Do you realise there is a very real chance you will be playing Fleetwood next season? And that could happen even if they don't get promoted. In fact there is a possibility that next season Fleetwood Town may be in a league above you. Does that not cause you some kind of concern? And all you can do is come on here and spout bitter bile against a team who have clawed their way back to the top with no help from anyone. It's a long time since Uncle Jack bought you out of second division obscurity and bought you the prem title, and now it's over, no-one wants to know you now you have no money. That's life, when you have money you have friends but they disappear like water in a drought when it's gone.
We have made some good acquisitions during the Summer and we will be okay. We can only sit back and enjoy the ride now. Propping up the prem after 3 games against Chelsea, United and away to Swansea is fine by me (and all Burnley fans). Are you happy with your position?

1. The 6 million figure is what you t1ts are quoting.
2 Odbodd is a character from the film carry on screaming, you should know him, we have just signed him. He goes by the name of Boyd and we paid Hull 3 million pounds for him and have heard nothing but canned laughter ever since.
3 the word more has a capital because its the start of a new sentence, just missed a full stop thats all, unlike Dyche and Burnley who missed 12 first choice transfer targets and an entire transfer window. And Ings and the Joker who have missed a lobster pot 24 feet accross and 8 feet high with a big net on the back for four fooking matches

At least one of you, who can't seem to decide which side he is on, is recognisable because the name change doesn't obscure the bad spelling, punctuation and "style" (I use the term loosely) of writing. It seems as though your only thought in life is to ruin what should be fun and informative for everyone.
