October


Championship -


Burnley 2 - 0 Birmingham (Andre Amougou, Pablo Redondo)
Burnley 1 - 1 Derby (Pablo Redondo)
Watford 0 - 2 Burnley (Junior Stanislas, Charlie Austin)
Ipswich 1 - 3 Burnley (Pablo Redondo, Zavon Hines, Chris McCann)
Burnley 1 - 0 Blackpool (Jay Rodriguez)

October has been a very promising month. Undefeated and 3 clean sheets has been fantastic. As it stands, Burnley FC are 1st with 9W/4D/1L with 26F/11A. The players seem completely set with the two formations, and with a bit of tweeking, I seem to of improved the defence.

Transfer Update


Have had an offer of £900k for Carlos Fierro accepted, and offered him a contract. He accepted. However, the work permit got rejected, and as such, we've had to appeal the decision. If that gets granted he will move on his 18th birthday (24/7/2012)
Nicely done my friend,

Cheers man! The plan is to get promoted.. either through the play offs or winning it! Hopefully the squad can stay fit and on form! Got Jordi Gomez and Ross Wallace out at the moment, so when they come back I should be properly sorted!

#44451 nlmh : your doing well with burnley

Cheers :) Their squad isn't that bad, but they'll probably get slaughtered in the Premiership at the moment!
rene adler usually turns into a free in the january market, first season.

emanuelson and salvio are two wingers that stay transfer listed.

in the mean time, just stay sharp at the transfer list or loan list(i'm not a big loan guy myself, but if you like it, yaya sanogo could be there if he was already snatched)

and take out that "irrealist" box mark. sometimes players want to sign for you or the club çet them go, high price but they leave.

cheers mate, and good luck!!

November


Championship -


Hull 0 - 2 Burnley (Junior Stanislas, Jay Rodriguez)
Burnley 6 - 3 Barnsley (Charlie Austin, Junior Stanislas, Jay Rodriguez (2), David Edgar, Ben Mee)
West Ham 1 - 0 Burnley
Burnley 2 - 1 Millwall (Dean Marney, Junior Stanislas)
Coventry 1 - 4 Burnley (Ross Wallace, Jay Rodriguez (3))

4 wins out of 5 has been a good month. A loss to the Hammers wasn't what I wanted, but then the team is still doing well over what was expected of them. Currently lie 4 points clear at the top of the Championship. Amazing work from the lads, just hope it lasts!

Boardroom


With January looming, and the need for a better back-up Keeper, I asked the board to increase the transfer budget available to me.

They agreed, giving me £2.53m to spend.

December


Burnley 2 - 0 Peterborough (Charlie Austin, Jay Rodriguez)
Reading 2 - 4 Burnley (Chris McCann, Jay Rodriguez, André Amougou)
Burnley 2 - 2 Doncaster (Jay Rodriguez (2))
Cardiff 1 - 1 Burnley (Dean Marney, Jay Rodriguez )
Nottingham Forest 1 - 2 Burnley (Chris McCann, Zavon Hines)

Unbeaten in December leaves us at the top of the Championship by 5 points. Amazing first half of the year.

Wow - seems you're doing quite well with burnley, looking forward to reading more of your story. Could you read my story also??

The board changed the expectations for the season, to winning the title. *gulp* They helped by giving me a January budget of £9m. On top of that, I made £2.5m selling some players that haven't had a run out this season.

Brain Jensen - Al-Gharrafa - £250k
Michael Duff - Motherwell - £250k
Keith Treacy - Blackpool - £750k
Richard Eckersley - Watford - £250k
Martin Patterson - Birmingham - £1m

Joe Lewis - Peterborough - £2.5m
Zeli Ismail - Wolves - £2.3m
Davy Klaassen - Ajax - £1.3m
Leonardo Bittencourt - Cottbus - £1.6m
Tony Trindade de Vilhena - Feyenoord - £1m
Daniele Rugani - Empoli - £2.4m

February


Championship -


Burnley 1 - 0 Crystal Palace (Chris McCann)
Leicester 0 - 1 Burnley (Jay Rodriguez)
Burnley 4 - 0 Leeds (Zavon Hines (3), Ben Mee)
Birmingham 0 - 2 Burnley (Jay Rodriguez, Zavon Hines)
Burnley 2 - 2 Brighton (Zavon Hines, Jay Rodriguez, Ben Mee )

Amazing month after January. 4 wins with clean sheets, with only the draw at Brighton being the blip. Ben Mee found out that getting a Red isn't acceptable pretty quickly...

Have to stop the cocky thought.. if I can breach the 100 point mark..

13 games left, and 71 points at the moment. So it is do-able..
