This team will pick itself in another 2 years - that's how bad it is and 9 will be over 30

So tell me again who is to blame ???

They can't get to the game anyway so not sure what good that will do.
Purely a way of protesting I suppose, as you say no other way of showing your displeasure....unless they on this messageboard 🤔

Oh, and throw in the probable need for a new manager and backroom staff. Next summer could be fun.

How many of the over 30s players do you think we should give new contracts to?

Why is Ben Gibson on the list? Do you think we are looking to bring him back to the club?

James Tarkowski - it will be brilliant him Tarks is available to sign a new contract. Anyone expect that will be the case?

Not sure what your point is. They're out of contract so either need to be renegotiated or replaced.

Because its a list of our players that are out of contract in 2021? No. So we need to replace him.

You've got 4 names on your list that have emerged these last few weeks from the development squad. Maybe there are a few more where they've come from. I'm sure we can all agree that no club needs to keep giving contracts to "old" footballers.

Surely, we've replaced Ben Gibson, one way or another? We let him train away from the club in Jan. He's now on loan at Norwich. Agree we need to maintain the squad, but Gibson hasn't been part of the squad since Jan - his contract end date doesn't need "renewal" attention - well, not unless a new manager has other views to Sean Dyche.

I'm all for keeping a happy Sean Dyche as the first priority.

In the same way I do t often hear from the owner of many businesses that I am a customer of. Stop feeling so entitled because it’s a football club.
Do you see yourself as a Burnley customer and not a supporter?
I’d say if I was a supporter of someone’s business that I’ve invested my time, money and loyalty to then I’d hope to be kept informed about the questions I have

SD stated that the club policy was to sell first and buy second.

The fact that we haven't sold anyone to raise the required funds means that significant signings are out of financial reach.

SD wanted to retain the players that he had and so I suppose chose the path he wanted to go down.
If he did say that was the club policy, I didn’t see that quote. If it’s the quote I’m thinking of, I think you’re misinterpreting what he actually said.

Depends whether you see yourself as merely a " customer " of BFC and if you do, whether its just on a par with with all those other businesses
Your view of yourself doesn't matter.

It's how a business sees you and the club sees you as a customer first and foremost for financial reasons.

Brendan Flood's the one who hogs the limelight when things are going well
We often see people targeted on this board. Me thinks CT a bit jealous of Brendan.

I'm not a customer - I'm a supporter. Without us they are nothing.

You're a customer.

Without any customers any business is nothing.

Are you a supporter of your preferred supermarket or a customer?

Yes, really.

If a business sees you as a supporter first and not a customer then they're doing it wrong.

No, but this isn't a matter for debate, I am a supporter not a customer. Football is very very different to a supermarket - you NEED food, your club is something you chose to have in your life and commit to.

If you see yourself as a customer then I feel sorry for you.

That’s true for every business! You are a customer with a high degree of brand loyalty.

I'm a massive film fan, but I'm a customer of my local cinema (until it closes this week that is)
The same principle applies to football and the money people.

They rely on your unwavering support because they value your custom.

This is part of the problem with football, fans can't seem to get the fact that a club is a business
