Season 2 Episode 38 | Burnley end season with defeat at basement Blades after laboured end of season
It was a lacklustre performance that brought to a close a lacklustre season. Burnley were poor at Bramall Lane against Championship-bound Sheffield United from the beginning after unusually starting in a 451 formation with Vydra on the bench, despite his good work in recent months. With Pope injured it was Will Norris in the net with BPF on the bench but once again the stand-in goalkeeper's performance left a lot of fans questioning his ability to stand in for Pope.
Season 2 Episode 37 | Burnley thrashed by Leeds United as poor home form continues with season fizzling out
The phrase 'sweep under the carpet' comes to mind when it comes to this weekends result against Leeds United. No real complaints though as Burnley were outclassed in every area of the pitch and were beaten by the better side. Plenty of talking points still though, did we miss Pope too much? has BPF proven he isn't good enough to replace Pope? Our thoughts on the Alioski incident, and more
Season 2 Episode 36 | Clarets secure Premier League safety with 3 games to go after win over Fulham
🎧 🎙 We've done it. Burnley MATHEMATICALLY safe. Another season of Premier League football has been secured. Sean Dyche is a genius and we must protect him at all costs. The Clarets secured that sixth season of Premier League football after their second win at Cravan Cottage this season against Fulham. It was another game where the points were secured in the first half after Ashley Westwood capped off a lovely move by Vydra and Woody sent a rocket into the top bins to continue his excellent form.
Season 2 Episode 34 | It's the Chris Wood Show as Burnley turn on the style to beat Wolves and move clear of the drop zone
Let's be fair - Burnley absolutely TROUNCED Wolves at Molinuex. A massive win for the Clarets against a good, but admittedly injury depleted Wolves side. It could have been more too. It was the perfect performance from the Clarets who played like a side under no pressure whatsoever. High press, fast passing, solid defending. It had everything. Chris Wood will of course get the plaudits for his hat-trick, and rightly so, but every single one of them lads were fantastic and gave everything.
Season 2 Episode 33 - Burnley unfortunate to lose out at Old Trafford as 'big 6' attempt football coup
Wow. What a week it's been for this beautiful game that we all love. On the pitch, Burnley lost again, but the result didn't tell the full story. Burnley played well and looked better defensively than they have done in recent weeks which gives us a bit of hope results can start picking up as we move forward. Off the pitch, well where to start? If you've missed it you've been living under a rock. The lads of course discussed the failed football coup attempt by the 'big six'.
Season 2 Episode 32 - Burnley throw points away for the second week running to leave Clarets looking over our shoulder
Let's face it, we should be relaxed and on the beach now after taking the lead in our last two games against teams in and around us. But no, bizarrely we have suddenly forgotten how to defend a lead, when it's usually what we're best at, at the worst possible time. Still plenty of games left and most importantly still 7 points clear, if Fulham pick up then we could be in some real danger.
Season 2 Episode 31 - Burnley throw chance away to move clear of bottom three after poor defensive display at St Mary's
Let's face it, we should be ten points clear right now. But we're not, we're seven. To be fair it could have been worse had Fulham held on but thankfully Villa did us a favour there. Hopefully we're not relying on other teams too much for the rest of the season. Newcastle up next at home. Win it and we're all but there.
Season 2 Episode 30 | Pope breaks records on international duty but Brady picks up a knock as Clarets prepare for Premier League return
Thank the lord that the international break is finally (almost) over - and for Burnley fans this one has been particularly difficult after not having a game during the last match week before the break. In fairness it's been a bit of a mixed-bag for the Clarets out representing their country. Pope has played all three games and kept two clean sheets in the process, becoming the first ever Englishman to keep six clean sheets in his first six games for his country - but still pundits and fans are obsessed with the fact he won't do a Cruyff turn out of the box. Brady has picked up another injury while playing for Ireland, while BPF played the two qualifying games for Northern Ireland as JBG & Matej Vydra were in and out of their sides. But enough of that international chat because the Premier League finally returns this weekend as the Clarets travel to St Mary's to take on a struggling Southampton side who started the season brilliantly. Three points for Burnley and it's pretty much job done in terms of survival for this season.
LIVE PODCAST - Season 2 Episode 29 - No game for Burnley before international Clarets jet off to play for their countries
This podcast was originally broadcast LIVE on our Facebook Page and YouTube, so the comments that we are responding too are those of the people who were in the live chat asking questions. If you'd like to get involved in the next live podcast make sure you follow us on social media. In the latest episode of the show we spoke about the Clarets that have been on international duty, including Nick Pope who kept his fifth clean sheet England without ever conceding a goal in 340 minutes of football. After that, with the podcast being broadcast live we let the fans in the chat set the agenda, so we ended up speaking a lot about potential summer signings, and outgoings, we had a debate on the Player of the Season so far, and more.
Season 2 Episode 28 - Burnley turn on the style to seal an impressive win at Goodison Park against Carlo Ancelotti's Everton
Wear yellow play like Brazil, or that seams to be the case with the Clarets this season in that beautiful yellow kit we have. It was definitely the case this weekend at Goodison anyway. Burnley were fantastic, especially in the first half, against a very good Everton side who have a very good manager. To cap it off the win came courtesy of two fantastic goals, especially Dwight's stunner. Anyone still worried about relegation? Obviously we're not safe yet but play like that for the rest of the season we have more chance of finishing in the top half than the bottom three. UTC
Season 2 Episode 27 - Burnley bounce back with 2 points in 2 home games against good opposition
Two home games since our last podcast and Burnley have managed to grab two points against decent opposition in Arsenal & Leicester. The Clarets went in to these two games on the back of a 4-0 thrashing from Spurs but thankfully managed to put that behind them pretty quickly and edge further to safety. Unfortunately for Sean Dyche's men though Fulham joined a long list of teams winning at Anfield to keep Clarets fans looking over their shoulder.
Season 2 Episode 26 - Spurs run riot against Burnley with Leicester & Arsenal up next
Burnley fell victim to a Gareth Bale masterclass at the weekend as Spurs found it all too easy to expose Burnley's weaknesses in midfield. It doesn't get any easier for the Clarets as they welcome Leicester City to Turf Moor next before Arsenal travel to the Turf at the weekend. As usual Joe Redmond and Simon Townley dissect all things that are Burnley FC as the lads look back at the Spurs defeat, look ahead to the game against Leicester, as well as discussing Lewis Richardson, Neil Hart, and more.
Season 2 Episode 25 | Burnley miss chance to pull away after poor performance against West Brom
It was supposed to be the run of fixtures that pulled Burnley away from danger. But after a poor performance against Fulham the lads put in an even worse one against West Brom to leave the Clarets looking over their shoulder. That, coupled with a tough upcoming run of fixtures, means it will be an interesting few weeks for the Clarets.
Season 2 Episode 24 - Burnley take huge strides towards Premier League survival after big win at Palace and home draw with Fulham
It's been a defining week in this season for Burnley Football Club. Games against sides in and around us has given us a brilliant opportunity to pull away from the dreaded drop zone but also meant that a bad run of results would drag us right back into it. But after playing two of those games it's so far so good, with a win against WBA potentially pulling us 11 points clear of the drop.
Season 2 Episode 22 - Clarets out of FA Cup after home draw against Brighton in the Premier League
It's been a frustrating wee to be a Claret. First, we absolutely dominated Brighton at Turf Moor but failed to make the chances count and ended up with only one point to show for it when it should have been all three. Secondly, despite a fantastic opportunity to progress to the quarter-finals in the FA Cup, Dyche fielded a very poor side and the Clarets ended up crashing out at home to championship side Bournemouth. Needs to be swept under the carpet. Big three games coming up.
Season 2 Episode 21 - Mixed emotions on the pitch this week for Burnley as concerns grow over new chairman Alan Pace
Burnley's two games this week couldn't be any more different. The first was an impressive win against an in-form Villa side where the Clarets scored three and looked very good going forward, but that was followed up by a game against Chelsea where Burnley were simply outclassed and had pretty much zero creativity going forward. Off the pitch though the January transfer window closed with - once again - no activity from Burnley at any point in the month. That, coupled with a couple of articles regarding the way the club was bought, has seen a rise in concern from fans over ALK Capital and new chairman Alan Pace.
Season 2 Episode 21 - Historic week for Burnley is capped of with cup win at Fulham
What a difference a week makes?! This time last week we were looking over our shoulder and dreading a visit to Anfield - now, after the Clarets have pulled off a historic first win at Anfield since 1974 we don't dread playing anyone right now! Cap that off with an impressive win at Fulham which saw the Clarets progress into the 5th round of the FA Cup and everyone suddenly feels a lot better at TurfCast HQ. Now lets get these signings done!
Season 2 Episode 20 -West Ham loss makes it two defeats in two for Burnley as tough run approaches
An unlucky defeat against Manchester United has quickly become two defeats in two after a lacklustre defeat against West Ham, but with Liverpool up next lets face it - it's likely to become three defeats out of three. After that in the league it's Aston Villa followed by Chelsea. This tough run of form could only get worse if Burnley don't buck their ideas up and fast. The TurfCast lads discuss all this and more in the latest episode of the show.
Season 2 Episode 19 | Burnley lose out to United at Turf Moor but progress in the FA Cup
It's starting to become a familiar theme of the season - Burnley defend well but the bite just isn't there up front anymore, and that was pretty much the story as Burnley lost out to Manchester United at Turf Moor thanks a second half Paul Pogba penalty. Before that though the Clarets did manage to progress in the FA Cup, just, thanks to a penalty shoot-out win against League One MK Dons - but it was a similar story there with the Clarets looking poor up front again. Is it time to drop Chris Wood? The lads have the debate, as well as looking both games and the ALK scouting app which Burnley partnered up with this week, before looking ahead to this weekends clash with West Ham United.
Season 2 Ep18 - No game for the Clarets as Fulham clash is cancelled but ALK takeover is finally completed
Well it was a historic week in the history of Burnley Football club, nobody can deny that. But should we be excited or nervous about ALK's purchase of the club. How do you feel? One thing is for certain - it's going to be an exciting few years!
