Burnley 1 Brighton 2

On the final weekend of July, the Clarets lost at home for the first time since New Year’s Day as their record attempt came up just short and Nick Pope was denied a share of the Golden Glove.

 Only a second defeat in 15 games left Sean Dyche’s men on the same 54-point total they reached when finishing seventh two seasons ago.

 This time equalling their highest points’ tally in the Premier League was enough for 10th place as Arsenal went past both Burnley and Sheffield United in the final standings.

 But the Clarets could barely have done more to get the extra point they needed having twice gone behind to a Brighton side, whose opening goal from Yves Bissouma denied Pope the shut-out he needed to share the goalkeeper’s prize with Manchester City’s Ederson, who pipped him to the award with a clean sheet against goal-shy Norwich City.
 The Clarets went into the break level thanks to a 14th league goal of the season from Chris Wood before Aaron Connolly restored Brighton’s lead.

 It was then all Burnley, though, as they looked to avoid ending a memorable season on a losing note.

 Jay Rodriguez thought he had equalised before a second VAR decision of the afternoon went against him.

 And Dyche’s men then bombarded the Brighton goal, taking their fight right to the end before finally running out of time at the end of the longest season on record.

Well done Clarets in what realistically turned out to be a good season, we cannot really ask for much more. Unlucky for Nick Pope not to share the Golden Glove award.
All in all with the way this season has gone I am fully satisfied with another year of Premier League football. All I hope for now is that the board do their utmost to Keep Sean Dyche as the manager of Burnley FC.

Well done to all, 10th position in this League is not to be sniffed at. (Sm152)(Sm152)(Sm152)

What the hell were both centre backs Tarkowski & Long doing in close proximity to each other on the right wing just before we conceded the 2nd?

Over to you Mr Dyche
