When Dyche arrived to succeed Eddie Howe as Clarets' manager last week he inherited a striker in the richest vein of form.

And Austin has continued his remarkable hot streak with goals in each of the back-to-back wins over Wolves and Leeds that gave Dyche the perfect start to his tenure - numbers 19 and 20 of a personal tally that is unsurpassed elsewhere in Europe.

"Goalscorers are always important, but Charlie's a good young man and he knows the team have given him many of those chances," said Dyche. "No one is bigger than the team, that's for sure."

Speculation has started to swirl around Austin's future in the upcoming January transfer window and Dyche - who lost star striker Marvin Sordell last winter when managing Watford - accepts the inevitability of such talk.

"We've never even spoken about it - it's more about what we can do with what we've got and how we build that forwards. Things like that are out of our control. Last year we sold Marvin Sordell. Now this club has a different financial climate, but there's still that reality."

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
