I think its a little unfair to bracket him alongside Allardyce, in fairness. He's done an exceptional job at Burnley. It's not hugely ambitious no, but infinitely better than Sam, in my view.

Actually think Allardyce was at least innovative when he was at Bolton.

His use of data / sports science gave him a usp which lifted them up the table.

I think most teams have caught up which is why his teamsí performances have slid back (a bit like Wenger with his dietary methods and more extensive scouting networks).

Iíve not come across anything re Dyche that lifts him beyond organisation.

Donít want either but Dyche is massively underwhelming and ultimately more short term than an Allardyce 6 month deal as heíd expect (rightly if weíre approching him) at least 3 year deal.

Yeah points taken. I think you could argue that we know Allardyce's ceiling, whereas we don't really know Dyche's at this point. He might step up to working with better players and greater resources and demonstrate a more progressive side. Ok, that's speculation on my part and a punt on the board's part, admittedly.

I've found myself arguing in support of Dyche when I don't want him either. I think I'm just relieved that it's not Allardyce tbh, which isn't a great starting point.

We're down.

You seem to have lost your head a bit with all this managerial speculation. I'll remind you of this post when we finish 9th, 26 points adrift of the Top 6 and with a comfortably negative goal difference.

Lads, Burnley should probably be in League One. They're 9th in the Prem. Of course they will park the bus at Anfield. It's a massive achievement for them to even be able to play in that game.
