Club Status

Make no mistake. Burnley may be a ‘small’ club in the eyes of neutrals, but they are a pioneering outfit built upon ingenuity and footballing intelligence. 

Established in 1882, the club were one of the original founding members of the Football League in 1888. Their Turf Moor ground is the longest continuously professional used football stadium in the top tier in the world; they were one of the first to popularise youth academies and also the first to allow a manager have complete control over transfer policy (mainly because of legendary chairman Bob Lord).

In recent years they have been a ‘yo-yo’ club as they appear too good for the Championship but not good enough for the Premier League and were consequently  promoted, relegated and promoted in three consecutive seasons before enjoying relative comfort in the 2016/2017 campaign.

Burnley's honours roll does not stop at being crowned champions of England twice in their history as they are also FA Cup winners and even reached the quarter-final stage of the 1961 European Cup. 

Interestingly, Burnley are also one of only three teams (Wolverhampton Wanderers and Preston North End) to have topped each of the four professional divisions in the English football league system. 

Burnley are one of the consensus favourites for relegation in the 2017-18 edition of the Premier League, once again along with the likes of with Huddersfield Town and Swansea City. If Burnley avoided a relegation battle altogether then manager Sean Dyche would have orchestrated some achievement once again and would presumably have tight job security.

Current Manager


Sean Dyche

By the club’s own assessment, Dyche is one of Burnley’s most successful managers in the modern era. 

Despite financial constraints, Dyche was able to engineer a route out of the Championship and into the Premier League within 18 months of asking, before repeating that feat two years later having very nearly secured survival in the top flight (finishing five points shy of Aston Villa, in 17th place). 

After the last relegation from the Premier League however 'the Ginger Mourinho' as he is affectionately known by the Turf Moor faithful, led an altogether more aggressive campaign and was able to lead his side to some terrific form which in the end, was enough to secure their safety with relative ease.

Dyche began his coaching career with a Watford youth team, before working his way up to assistant manager (2009) and then manager (2011). 

A temporary position with the England Under-21 side beckoned until he linked up with Burnley, where he has the confidence of both the board and of the supporters.

Owner & Manager Relationship


Club chairman Mike Garlick has a high opinion of Sean Dyche and that bond may prove to be resilient in the coming months as it was only in February, 2016, when the former said he was “delighted” that the latter signed a contract extension. 

The following month he claimed Burnley would do “everything to keep Dyche” as speculation mounted that other clubs were interested in his signature and then, in May, Garlick claimed the manager had been a “revelation” at the Lancashire outfit.

Fan and Manager Relationship


The fans have a similarly strong appraisal of Dyche as Garlick, with the 45-year-old even the subject of eye-catching graffiti murals in the city centre thanks to the rollercoaster ride he and the fans have shared in his four-year spell thus far (promotion, relegation and promotion again).

Potential Future Burnley Managers and next Burnley Manager Betting Advice


Burnley already stuck by Dyche through one unsuccessful relegation battle and their decision to not appoint a new Burnley manager was immediately vindicated with the instant promotion from the Championship, back into the Premier League. 

However, if the relationship is not strong enough to survive a rocky few months at the beginning of the season or indeed another club decides to cherry pick Dyche then the club may look who is available to step in at short notice to become the next Burnley manager. 

Currently, the Turf Moor upper brass could look at the likes of Alan Pardew, Sam Allardyce or David Moyes as options as next Burnley manager but the odds may be more favourable for Dyche to continue in the current set-up.
