    Superb stuff. I used to love visiting Turf Moor with Hull City and then Scarborough. Burnley are a proper football club unlike some of the pretenders in the play offs (stand up Franchise FC and Reading). I sincerely hope they win the final at Wembley.

    Good to see they have finally almost recovered from being the first top flight side to be beaten by a non-league team at their own ground (Wimbledon in 1975). I believe Bob Lord even destroyed any TV evidence of their humilation too. I wonder if they still do cheap pints at the cricket club next door?
