Burnely fans vent their anger at this blog:
And struggle with the concept of xenophobia:
Because Burnley's not a racist place:

It's a shame that your biased report through your eyes (which is true in your opinion) raised the worst of Burnley fans who saw it as untrue in theirs.
Whilst I am saddened by the pointless sheep comments, surely you cannot be surprised by the negative response to comments like 'the thing about lumberjacks is that they are lousy footballers, and so are Burnley. Quite how they were third place in the Championship going into this game is beyond me?'
Have you seen Burnley play before yesterday?
I don't rate most journalists as they are usually lazy and write gernalisations on the basis of little or no investigation, is this any different?

graham, the only evidence I needed was Burnley's performance yesterday.
Negative in the extreme.
It's a good thing Burnley lost, because otherwise they might be tempted to play that style of football elsewhere.
This is a blog, it's not the Sunday Times. As such, I'm more than happy to accept colourful comments from Burnley supporters.
As I said, they now have another axe to grind...

We're quite reknowned for our attractive passing football.
One swallow doesn't make a summer and all that.
Personally I hope we don't play like that again, we're getting used to winning.

Because I could do without the hate mail, I'll go under cover for this one:
Burnley (John Cooper Clarke)
I'll tell you now and I'll tell you firmly
I don't never want to go to Burnley
What they do there don't concern me
Why would anybody make the journey?
I'll tell you know and I'll tell you flatly
I don't never want to go to Gatley
I don't even want to go to Batley
Where is that place exactly
Do I wanna to go to Redditch?
I wouldn't visit in a souped-up sheddish
what am I some kind of Nebbish?
No I don't want to go to Reddish
I'll tell you now and I'll tell you briefley
I don't never want to go to Keighley
I'll tell you now, just like I told Elsa Lanchester...
I don't ever want to go to... Cumbernauld.
He's also been known to say that people in Burnley look and point when they see aeroplanes.
