Brian Laws, confirmed as the new maanger of Burnley FC today has been speaking to the Official Site about his new appointment

‘I am sure there are a lot of Burnley fans asking, ‘why Brian Laws?’ Well let me tell you, I have followed Burnley since I was 16-years-old, when I joined the club.I have had an affinity with this club for a long time and I am really honoured to have the privilege of managing Burnley Football Club in the Premier League. This is a fantastic opportunity. Owen Coyle has done a fantastic job at this club. Nobody can ever take that away and I wouldn’t want to even try.But at this moment in time he has dropped the baton and we want to pick it up with the supporters and drive on over the finishing line, which means we will have stayed in the Premier League.That is our drive and ambition and I will do everything in my power to achieve that because this great club is where it should be.’

Some excellent words there Brian and I guess all we have to ask is can we now bring Marcus Tudgay to Turf Moor and how was James O’Connor last time you spoke to him?!! 😉
