The baffling news that’s probably just secured Newcastle United’s Premier League status

Burnley have announced the puzzling news that manager Sean Dyche and his staff will be leaving the club after 10 years of service amidst a tough relegation battle.

The 50-year-old joined the Lancashire side back in 2012 and went on to win two promotions from the Championship as well guiding his team to seventh in the Premier league, qualifying them for European football for the first time since 1966.

After maintaining Burnley’s Premier League status for the last five seasons on what many perceive to be a shoe-string budget, this news will come as a surprise and a relief for teams in and around the bottom three.

With a squad consisting of a 34-year-old Aaron Lennon, Matej Vydra who has seven goals in four years, and a 36-year-old Phil Bardsley, it begs the question what exactly are the owners expecting from such a poor crop of players?

Sacking a manager who has earned the reputation of achieving wonders with such little backing right at the business end of the season may have all but confirmed their expulsion back to the second division.

The club have revealed that captain Ben Mee will be asked to assist Under-23’s coach Mike Jackson as they prepare to visit West Ham on Sunday afternoon.

While fans of Everton, Leeds and Newcastle will be overjoyed at the news, the faith and hope of Burnley supporters now rests in the hands of a man whose only managerial experience was a relegation with Shrewsbury and lasting just three months at Tranmere – just baffling.

  1. Rubbish article regardless if he was still manager of Burnley or not Newcastle will not go down.

  2. This is hilarious.
    When Howe arrived at Newcastle we were stunned at what an amazing change a new manager and a new outlook made to our game. To this date the credit is given to Howe, and not the new players that were brought in in January.
    It’s all Howe, Howe, Howe, Howe, Howe.
    Burnley, who only just stayed up last season, and are looking like going down this , have decided to try a change of manager.
    Like we did, earlier this season.
    Like we did bringing Rafa in in 2016.
    Like we did in 2009 with Shearer.
    When Bruce was sacked, the fans were not saying “but what do you expect with these players?” Which is sad really, because Howe did bugger all with those same players, only getting results with the new transfers.
    Howe has had his time, if Burnley are to stand any chance of making up those 4 points on Everton, this is something they have to do.

    As for the headline “Baffling News That Might Just Secure Newcastle’s Premier League Status”, that just makes no sense at all.
    Changing manager to try to stay up is not baffling.
    Then of course, why are you focusing on Newcastle being relegated when Everton are next in line, 6 points below us?

    Terrible article!
