Burnley boss staying positive

Burnley manager Sean Dyche is still spotting encouraging signs in his squad despite seeing a six-match winless run virtually extinguish their hopes of reaching the Championship play-offs.

Sean Dyche: Clarets on poor run of form

Sean Dyche: Clarets on poor run of form

The Clarets drew a blank for the third successive time in a 1-0 defeat to struggling Huddersfield on Tuesday to extend a miserable sequence which has seen them slip into the bottom half of the table.

Dyche took the Turf Moor hotseat at the end of October and raised expectations with a run of three consecutive victories in January. However, despite the return of leading scorer Charlie Austin, Burnley have struggled to maintain that form, although their manager still retains faith in his current crop.

"It's a group of players we've never worked with before and we haven't changed anything yet so, by that thinking, there's still some really good signs," Dyche said.

The ex-Watford boss is refusing to rule his men out of the play-off reckoning, although he does acknowledge the magnitude of the task, and is hoping to snap the current rut at Charlton on Saturday.

"The biggest challenge to the players now is - you've taken the club a long way, getting up to seventh and people recognising the good work, good play - and now you've dragged it all away," he said.

"Now it's about all of us taking responsibility and looking at what we do individually and collectively because we're the only ones who can change it, simple as that."

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.
