Burnley 1 Leicester City 2

A memorable week for Dwight McNeil had some of the gloss removed by a late Leicester winner which leaves the Clarets looking over their shoulders. 

 Having just received his first England call-up as part of the Under-20 squad, McNeil claimed Burnley’s 100th Premier League goal at Turf Moor.

 His superbly executed equaliser just before half time looked as though it would stop the rot after three successive defeats and earn what could yet be a valuable point in the final reckoning at the bottom end of the table.

 But in the last minute Wes Morgan headed a Leicester winner as the Foxes – who had played almost the entire game a man short after Harry Maguire was sent off – nicked all three to send Sean Dyche’s men into the international break with plenty of work still to do to secure their top-flight status.

 Leicester were down to 10 men after just four minutes as the Clarets were handed an immediate advantage.

 Johann Berg Gudmundsson, making just his third league start of the year after replacing Jeff Hendrick as the sole change to the Clarets’ side, got in behind the Foxes’ defence from Jack Cork’s pass.

 And when Maguire clipped the winger’s heels as he raced towards goal, referee Michael Oliver was seemingly left with no alternative but to show the England man a red card.

 Leicester sent on title-winning captain Morgan to fill the gap and the Clarets initially struggled to make the numbers’ game count in their favour.

 Gudmundsson, invariably the Clarets’ attacking catalyst, delivered a cross for former Fox Chris Wood which the striker nodded wide.

Well that was poor, up against 10 men for 86 minutes and nothing on target. Subsitutions once again tactically poor what was the point of bringing Vids on at 90 minutes. This is getting really serious now.

Forgot to mention it was a definite penalty on Taylor.

A team and club with relegation now written all over it. The tenth goal in the 90th minute conceded. Tarkowski abysmal. Wood and Barnes just two planks today. Crossing was woeful again. Back to hoof ball from the back. Just two shots on target against a ten man team.

Gudmondsson taken off when it was McNeil tiring.
Hydra on in injury time a joke.

We support a very parochial club, with parochial directors, the transfer windows unimpressive.

At the Community dinner at Fence Gate Dyche was introduced by Campbell as Burnley's greatest manager. Er I don't think so.
But fear not we shall have one of the best training grounds in the Championship.

But denied a stone wall penalty by a ref who had a stinker in the second half. It might have made the score 2-1 at a critical time.
The game would have swung our way. We might have won.

At the end of this game and considering DT's comments of the recent past I have come to the conclusion that SD is our Theresa May........not as in a pathological liar but in having an intransigent when failing mindset. I have always been of the opinion that players who have previously played well yet start to become innefective it is best to start looking at those who direct and manage them.Leicester as a team transformed are a great example of this.My thought after this game regarding our management has taken a considerable shift. When you consider that Barnes and Heaton were on SD's remove list one starts to have doubts.
