What I find encouraging is that Dyche's Burnley had a better record against teams in the lower half of the table than we have had for years. They also occasionally won against the so-called big six home and away. All of that done with a transfer budget of around three and sixpence ha'penny.
Spot on. Literally beat every team in the league at least once under Dyche. With some wins we haven’t seen since the 60s. Away at anfield, old Trafford, Goodison, the emirates, Stamford bridge.
We beat the reigning champions in every single season he was here. Including absolutely ripping Chelsea a new one at their place on the first game of the season in the year we qualified for Europe. That season our football was electric. With next to no money spent.
We beat city. (Ironically the goal was assisted by a certain kompany clearance). With a world class volleyed finish.
When we won at old Trafford we scored two world class goals in a 2-0 win. The year prior we were 2-0 up with a world class free kick goal before United scored a couple of fergie time goals.
The impressive wins and impressive goals were far more frequent than many give him credit for.
When we HAD to win. We almost always did. I do believe had he stayed on we’d have stayed up. But was the right move in the end for both parties.
