Three years of Sean Dyche

Three years of Sean Dyche

I wasn't so sure I was ever going to write an article again on a manager having been at Burnley for three years. When I took over as editor of Clarets Mad Stan Ternent was very close and Steve Cotterill also went beyond that third year.
Twenty's Plenty

Twenty's Plenty

Eric Cock - The Cycling Claret
