Lets Remind Ourselves of the highlights of Burnley before Tarkowski and Judge decide.


Some of the Brentford fans had the pleasure of a day out at Turf Moor earlier this season. The stewards and fans were friendly enough and maybe we were unfortunate to lose 1-0 to a sloppy goal from defensive error. But would I want to live there?

Judging by the news Burnley are after signing the whole Brentford squad, the fans, the badge and most likely the urban architecture that is Brentford! Today allegedly having a 2.3 million offer rejected for James Tarkowski. A ridiculous bid.

Lets take a look at what Burnley the town and the football ground was like and maybe Tarkowski and Judge may form a different view of where they want to play their football.

  1. A Night out in Burnley. If these were the new ideas from the new owners, what exactly were the old ones like?

2. Maybe not much different to many Northern towns but this is what the streets looked like around the ground

A Truly Worrying Football Trend? The football style of Man Utd does not please Adidas.


A story caught my eye this evening that may reflect totally innocuous statements from the Chief Executive of Adidas, but as a forerunner for the future it concerns me. Adidas making a statement that although they are satisfied with the amount of shirts being sold they were not overly happy with the ” style of play” of Manchester United. We currently have SKY and other broadcasters dictating the timings of football games. Two of my teams games Brentford have been moved to friday night kick offs to accommodate TV broadcasting. This does not suit everyone, but to have a kit sponsor comment on the style of play? I don’t like this one little bit.

” Man Utd playing style is not exactly what Adidas wants to see”

Where might this lead to? Further influence? I don’t really know. I wonder whose kit Molesey use…….does it explain their style…..an excellent one actually, and better than Man Utd…
