Panathinaikos is another one, people unable to accept that shamrocks and the colour green are used outside of Ireland.

Were we converted by the Greeks then out of our heathenhood? Should our priests all have beards?

He's coming 27, worrying sign. Surely he'd of tried to get a permanent gig playing football weekly by now.

Did fine really but the team as a whole didn't play well but Sam Vokes was the stand out player for the Clarets .

Has had no luck with injuries to be fair, would love to see him get a good run next season.

Lads just off the top of my head I know Kevin has started for Burnley before , It seems the media think he made his debut a couple of weeks ago which is not true . Now the last time we were in the Prem he got into the side then got a bad injury at Newcastle which kept him out for all of that season . Ok just looked it up he has started 20 games for Burnley plus 4 as a sub .

Longest serving player at the club? They've really stood by him. Must see something in his ability.

That, or he's cheap and does the job when required.

Think Dyche preferred him to Shane Duffy who was on loan at Burnley. Didnt take up the option of keeping Duffy.

It takes all sorts. Three years ago I wouldn't have seen Rob Elliot in contention for club or country. Same for Darren Randolph. Would have said the same about Wes ten years ago. You never know how players are going to develop, or when.
You asked if I'd be anyone from history, fact or fiction, dead or alive:
I said "I'd be Tony Cascarino, circa 1995"

Yeah, Duffy looked awful at Blackburn, where he earned the wonderful nickname '50p head' and I still don't trust his positional sense but he has had an excellent season at Brighton.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

He was fairly good for Blackburn bar the start of this season according to most reports on this forum. Was he not "consistently high on ranking sites" etc, or at least that's what his proponents were saying. Certainly he'd had a far longer run of extended first team football when O'Neill called him up than Long has had.
We're decent enough..
