Sean Dyche: Likely to be facing a busy January

Sean Dyche: Likely to be facing a busy January

Lee Darnbrough will start work on 1 December as the Clarets honour a deal agreed at the request of the ex-manager Eddie Howe before he opted to return to Bournemouth.

Dyche has only been in his post for two weeks and with the January transfer window fast approaching could have cause for concern over his influence on choosing new players.

But joint chairman Mike Garlick said: "We've got someone coming in who will be heading up our recruitment function for players.

"I think Sean has been used to that sort of structure at Watford and at other clubs he has been at. Ultimately he will be the guy who chooses the players that come in."

Dyche's immediate focus will be to hold on to rising stars such as Charlie Austin and Kieran Trippier, as well as inheriting players he didn't personally sign.

Jamaican winger Dane Richards will arrive in January from the Vancouver Whitecaps after securing a pre-contract in August.

Garlick added: "The first thing Sean has to do is have a good look at what he's got. If you look at managers in the past, mistakes were often made when they come in and try to change things too quickly and bring people in too quickly.

"So at this stage it's have a look at what we've got, see how we can improve that and take it from there."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
