    Baseball Furie got a reaction from SM Tony in Official Chelsea FC Thread   
    Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread
    I haven't rated him since he joined way back yesteryear. To me Matic or Luiz do a better job and I just think he's a waste of wages. The next Makelele he was meant to be. I think Makelele at his age now could still play better than what Mikel can.

    Re: DAiS Genesis | Media

    NOT GOOD ENOUGH
    So it's over, a turbulent season for every club in this part of the world and a season that Leicester City manager Sam Wainwright wants to forget about right away and look forward to next season. Upon seeing his side comfortably beat Trabzonspor in their final league game of the season, Wainwright was anything but upbeat about his teams season: "We had our ups and downs and despite winning more than we lost, I still feel we let the fans down, I just want to move on to next season and put this season behind us, it's finished now and I'm proud of my team, but we didn't do enough."
    This comes after Wainwrights team finished 5th in Division 3 and 4 points off the play offs. Adding to his comments, when asked about transfers he stated; "We've been given some cash in the injection but I doubt it'd pay for the buffet at an ASBO wedding. We would love to bring in cover for the first team as I found us struggling with depth last season."

    THE PLAYERS SEASON LOWDOWN

    GOALKEEPERS


    Javi Varas, 30, Spanish:
    Varas had a off season as Leicesters number 1 playing 14 games and conceding 18 goals. Varas had just 3 league clean sheets to his name this season and will be looking to improve on the tally next season. Rumours are that Wainwright could be looking to replace the shot-stopper if he doesn't start improving.
    Conrad Logan, 26, Republic of Ireland:
    Logan will have been disappointed not to have made a single appearance this season and will be pushing for that number one spot that Varas has yet to claim as his own. Logan isn't getting any younger and rumours are he's moving on.

    DEFENDERS



    Tom Kennedy, 27, England:
    The English left back can be happy with the amount of games he found himself playing this season after the arrival of Davide Santon and Ivan Marcano. However, Kennedy has played 5 league games and 3 cup games in which he scored 1 goal. Kennedy will be pleased with the season he's had, and so will his manager.
    Davide Santon, 21, Italy (STAR MAN):
    Santon has won his teams "Star Man" award for this seasons performances. Santon played a total of 10 games and was a prominent and key figure in the defence this season. Wainwright himself spoke out about Santon: "He's a quality young player and when I signed him I was in disbelief that we persuaded such a great young talent to join our club. He has done brilliant for us this season and I can only hope he keeps up his performance for next season."
    Rod Fanni, 30, France:
    Rod Fanni had a good season for Leicester playing a total of 12 games for his club. He will want to make sure his Right Back position is cemented for next season with the likes of Phil Neville and Davide Santon able to fill the gap if needs be. Fanni's physicality and aggression could do with coming down a little though as he picked up 3 yellow cards in the league this season.
    Phil Neville, 35, England:
    The Leicester veteran filled his boots this season featuring 11 times for his club and though not getting on the score sheet he managed to pick up a couple of assists and the legend does the job he's told to do to perfection, a talisman-like figure and a sure fire bet to be vice-captain this season.
    Iván Marcano, 25, Spain:
    The swift Spaniard featured in 11 of Leicesters matches this season and some would say Marcano was their most consistent player in the league this season. Though Marcano did not contribute to any of the goals scored, he still did his defensive duties perfectly week in week out and manager Wainwright will surely be happy with the performances he has put in this season.
    Aleksandar Lukovic, 30, Serbia:
    Lukovic played 8 games for Leicester this season and was one of the weaker performers in this seasons campaigns. It shows that Rodrigo Alex and Iván Marcano are still the number 1 centre backs and Lukovic will need to drastically improve on his performances next season if he wants to play more games.
    Rodrigo Alex, 30, Brazil:
    11 games played, 11 brilliant performances from the big Brazilian. Did his duties down to a tee and will be proud of his first full season in the Foxes ranks. Wainwright told us: "What a player he is, I wanted him and he wanted to play here, he joined, he performed and I held my mouth open in awe at some of his bulldozing tackles. He shows the hunger, desire and passion of the game in every match he plays, a proper leader."
    Ritchie De Laet, 23, Belgium:
    This years surprise package. Played 6 games in total for Leicester and looked comfortable in the middle of the park in most games and from going from a cert to leave at the start of the season has moved himself into the team and proven his worth.

    MIDFIELDERS



    Blaise Matuidi, 25, France:
    Despite having an injury that kept him out for 2 weeks, Blaise Matuidi still managed to play 11 games for Leicester this season, scoring 2 goals and assisting 3. Matuidi just missed out on the Leicester Star Man award this season after some scintillating matches from the Frenchman. Matuidi is now established as one of the first names on the team sheet on match days.
    Mehmet Akgun, 26, Germany:
    Akgun performed when he needed to this season. Despite only featuring in 5 league games and 2 cup games, Akgun still managed a goal and was hailed as brilliant during his game against Trabzonspor. Akgun has reportedly seeked an improvement on his current contract and has expressed his desire to stay at the club and help Leicester City succeed in promotion.
    Antonio Nocerino, 27, Italy:
    The talismanic midfielder turned out in 11 matches for Leicester scoring a single goal and picking up 2 yellows. Nocerino himself though, was disappointed with his performance this season, in a recent interview he told us; "I felt I didn't perform as well as I know I can this season, I picked up a knock in pre-season and I haven't felt the same since, now we are on vacation for a couple of weeks I will give it a lot of rest and hope to come back next season fitter than ever."
    Fernando Belluschi, 29, Argentina:
    Belluschi played 10 games for Leicester City this season, scoring 3 goals and assisting the 1. Belluschi has cemented himself into the starting 11 in recent weeks and only missed Trabzonspor's match due to an injury and physios have said he should hopefully be back at the start of November.
    Burakcan Kúnt, 20, Turkey:
    Kúnt managed to play 11 games for the Foxes this season despite only being 20 years of age in which he got 2 goals and 2 assists. Upon his first season in Division 3 he told us: "I really didn't expect to play, I mean, I feel I'm utter rubbish but for some strange reason the gaffer had so much faith in him and I felt I owed it to him to show that he made the right decision to play me so often." Wainwright unveiled the reason he played Burakcan so often in a later interview: "He's sexy."
    Jonathan Pitroipa, 26, Burkina Faso:
    Pitroipa's season was marred by a succession of injuries and in the end he only managed 6 games. However he did still manage to pick up the single goal and 3 assists in those 6 games. Pitroipa will want to keep his fitness in the coming season and help his team to chase promotion, if he has a hand in 4 goals in the 6 games he played, how much could he contribute if he had played all season?
    Paul Gallagher, 28, Scotland:
    Though only a fringe player nowadays, Gallagher seems rather upbeat about his position at the club and feels he is happy where he is: "I've had other offers but I love Leicester City Football Club and it's fans, I'd never want to leave and would only leave if I was forced out." However earlier on today a statement came from the LCFC claiming: "Paul Gallagher has been transfer listed by the club to bring in more funds for the development of the team."
    Emmanuel Riviére, 22, France:
    Another player whose season was ravaged by injury. Riviére will have been disappointed with his first season and lack of games. Emmanuel turned out in just 1 match at the start of the season and within that match was injured and was on the sidelines for an astonishing 5 weeks. With that Riviére was virtually out for the season and Leicester had to look at their fringe players for cover. Hopefully Riviére can this season play more than a measly 60 minutes.
    Goran Pandev, 29, Macedonia:
    Goran Pandev was the forefront of everything that is Leicester City this season. Playing 14 games and scoring 3 goals with 3 assists, Pandev was always in the spotlight. His performances were consistent and he was in great form. Wainwright has already expressed his desire at seeing Pandev play again this season and he only hopes that the Macedonian can score a few more goals.

    FORWARDS



    Gonçalves Jonas, 28, Brazil:
    3 goals in 7 games in the league for Jonas would be considered as a good turnover. Unless of course, you're Jonas or his manager. It is said that both were disappointed in his lack of goals and since the end of the season Wainwright has apparently had sit down talks with Jonas and wants to see him become more selfish next season and start shooting more. Lets hope it works.
    Jermain Defoe, 30, England:
    4 goals in 9 games in the league for Defoe would also be considered as a good ratio. But once again Wainwright has grilled Defoe over his lack of shots and glaucoma induced shooting. Speaking to us 2 weeks ago, Wainwright told us; "His shooting has been pathetic, he couldn't hit a child with a tank that lad. I told him to pick it up in training and would you believe it he started crying. I think it's his time of the month." However Defoe is another player who agrees his form was off: "I told the gaffer I was unhappy with my performances and he totally agreed, which made me happy, I've not felt comfortable yet here but I'm determined to fit in a prove that I'm the best striker ever to walk the planet."

    So it's over, a turbulent season for every club in this part of the world and a season that Leicester City manager Sam Wainwright wants to forget about right away and look forward to next season. Upon seeing his side comfortably beat Trabzonspor in their final league game of the season, Wainwright was anything but upbeat about his teams season: "We had our ups and downs and despite winning more than we lost, I still feel we let the fans down, I just want to move on to next season and put this season behind us, it's finished now and I'm proud of my team, but we didn't do enough."
    This comes after Wainwrights team finished 5th in Division 3 and 4 points off the play offs. Adding to his comments, when asked about transfers he stated; "We've been given some cash in the injection but I doubt it'd pay for the buffet at an ASBO wedding. We would love to bring in cover for the first team as I found us struggling with depth last season."

    THE PLAYERS SEASON LOWDOWN

    GOALKEEPERS


    Javi Varas, 30, Spanish:
    Varas had a off season as Leicesters number 1 playing 14 games and conceding 18 goals. Varas had just 3 league clean sheets to his name this season and will be looking to improve on the tally next season. Rumours are that Wainwright could be looking to replace the shot-stopper if he doesn't start improving.
    Conrad Logan, 26, Republic of Ireland:
    Logan will have been disappointed not to have made a single appearance this season and will be pushing for that number one spot that Varas has yet to claim as his own. Logan isn't getting any younger and rumours are he's moving on.

    DEFENDERS



    Tom Kennedy, 27, England:
    The English left back can be happy with the amount of games he found himself playing this season after the arrival of Davide Santon and Ivan Marcano. However, Kennedy has played 5 league games and 3 cup games in which he scored 1 goal. Kennedy will be pleased with the season he's had, and so will his manager.
    Davide Santon, 21, Italy (STAR MAN):
    Santon has won his teams "Star Man" award for this seasons performances. Santon played a total of 10 games and was a prominent and key figure in the defence this season. Wainwright himself spoke out about Santon: "He's a quality young player and when I signed him I was in disbelief that we persuaded such a great young talent to join our club. He has done brilliant for us this season and I can only hope he keeps up his performance for next season."
    Rod Fanni, 30, France:
    Rod Fanni had a good season for Leicester playing a total of 12 games for his club. He will want to make sure his Right Back position is cemented for next season with the likes of Phil Neville and Davide Santon able to fill the gap if needs be. Fanni's physicality and aggression could do with coming down a little though as he picked up 3 yellow cards in the league this season.
    Phil Neville, 35, England:
    The Leicester veteran filled his boots this season featuring 11 times for his club and though not getting on the score sheet he managed to pick up a couple of assists and the legend does the job he's told to do to perfection, a talisman-like figure and a sure fire bet to be vice-captain this season.
    Iván Marcano, 25, Spain:
    The swift Spaniard featured in 11 of Leicesters matches this season and some would say Marcano was their most consistent player in the league this season. Though Marcano did not contribute to any of the goals scored, he still did his defensive duties perfectly week in week out and manager Wainwright will surely be happy with the performances he has put in this season.
    Aleksandar Lukovic, 30, Serbia:
    Lukovic played 8 games for Leicester this season and was one of the weaker performers in this seasons campaigns. It shows that Rodrigo Alex and Iván Marcano are still the number 1 centre backs and Lukovic will need to drastically improve on his performances next season if he wants to play more games.
    Rodrigo Alex, 30, Brazil:
    11 games played, 11 brilliant performances from the big Brazilian. Did his duties down to a tee and will be proud of his first full season in the Foxes ranks. Wainwright told us: "What a player he is, I wanted him and he wanted to play here, he joined, he performed and I held my mouth open in awe at some of his bulldozing tackles. He shows the hunger, desire and passion of the game in every match he plays, a proper leader."
    Ritchie De Laet, 23, Belgium:
    This years surprise package. Played 6 games in total for Leicester and looked comfortable in the middle of the park in most games and from going from a cert to leave at the start of the season has moved himself into the team and proven his worth.

    MIDFIELDERS



    Blaise Matuidi, 25, France:
    Despite having an injury that kept him out for 2 weeks, Blaise Matuidi still managed to play 11 games for Leicester this season, scoring 2 goals and assisting 3. Matuidi just missed out on the Leicester Star Man award this season after some scintillating matches from the Frenchman. Matuidi is now established as one of the first names on the team sheet on match days.
    Mehmet Akgun, 26, Germany:
    Akgun performed when he needed to this season. Despite only featuring in 5 league games and 2 cup games, Akgun still managed a goal and was hailed as brilliant during his game against Trabzonspor. Akgun has reportedly seeked an improvement on his current contract and has expressed his desire to stay at the club and help Leicester City succeed in promotion.
    Antonio Nocerino, 27, Italy:
    The talismanic midfielder turned out in 11 matches for Leicester scoring a single goal and picking up 2 yellows. Nocerino himself though, was disappointed with his performance this season, in a recent interview he told us; "I felt I didn't perform as well as I know I can this season, I picked up a knock in pre-season and I haven't felt the same since, now we are on vacation for a couple of weeks I will give it a lot of rest and hope to come back next season fitter than ever."
    Fernando Belluschi, 29, Argentina:
    Belluschi played 10 games for Leicester City this season, scoring 3 goals and assisting the 1. Belluschi has cemented himself into the starting 11 in recent weeks and only missed Trabzonspor's match due to an injury and physios have said he should hopefully be back at the start of November.
    Burakcan Kúnt, 20, Turkey:
    Kúnt managed to play 11 games for the Foxes this season despite only being 20 years of age in which he got 2 goals and 2 assists. Upon his first season in Division 3 he told us: "I really didn't expect to play, I mean, I feel I'm utter rubbish but for some strange reason the gaffer had so much faith in him and I felt I owed it to him to show that he made the right decision to play me so often." Wainwright unveiled the reason he played Burakcan so often in a later interview: "He's sexy."
    Jonathan Pitroipa, 26, Burkina Faso:
    Pitroipa's season was marred by a succession of injuries and in the end he only managed 6 games. However he did still manage to pick up the single goal and 3 assists in those 6 games. Pitroipa will want to keep his fitness in the coming season and help his team to chase promotion, if he has a hand in 4 goals in the 6 games he played, how much could he contribute if he had played all season?
    Paul Gallagher, 28, Scotland:
    Though only a fringe player nowadays, Gallagher seems rather upbeat about his position at the club and feels he is happy where he is: "I've had other offers but I love Leicester City Football Club and it's fans, I'd never want to leave and would only leave if I was forced out." However earlier on today a statement came from the LCFC claiming: "Paul Gallagher has been transfer listed by the club to bring in more funds for the development of the team."
    Emmanuel Riviére, 22, France:
    Another player whose season was ravaged by injury. Riviére will have been disappointed with his first season and lack of games. Emmanuel turned out in just 1 match at the start of the season and within that match was injured and was on the sidelines for an astonishing 5 weeks. With that Riviére was virtually out for the season and Leicester had to look at their fringe players for cover. Hopefully Riviére can this season play more than a measly 60 minutes.
    Goran Pandev, 29, Macedonia:
    Goran Pandev was the forefront of everything that is Leicester City this season. Playing 14 games and scoring 3 goals with 3 assists, Pandev was always in the spotlight. His performances were consistent and he was in great form. Wainwright has already expressed his desire at seeing Pandev play again this season and he only hopes that the Macedonian can score a few more goals.

    FORWARDS



    Gonçalves Jonas, 28, Brazil:
    3 goals in 7 games in the league for Jonas would be considered as a good turnover. Unless of course, you're Jonas or his manager. It is said that both were disappointed in his lack of goals and since the end of the season Wainwright has apparently had sit down talks with Jonas and wants to see him become more selfish next season and start shooting more. Lets hope it works.
    Jermain Defoe, 30, England:
    4 goals in 9 games in the league for Defoe would also be considered as a good ratio. But once again Wainwright has grilled Defoe over his lack of shots and glaucoma induced shooting. Speaking to us 2 weeks ago, Wainwright told us; "His shooting has been pathetic, he couldn't hit a child with a tank that lad. I told him to pick it up in training and would you believe it he started crying. I think it's his time of the month." However Defoe is another player who agrees his form was off: "I told the gaffer I was unhappy with my performances and he totally agreed, which made me happy, I've not felt comfortable yet here but I'm determined to fit in a prove that I'm the best striker ever to walk the planet."

    A KÚNT'S LIFE


    Burakcan Kúnt is a name that is making big waves in the world of football. The Turkish midfielder who currently plays for Leicester City has been on the lips of many a pundit, fan and manager in recent weeks. Though he has now appeared to of hit the big time, his earlier years were nothing short of miserable.
    Burakcan was born in Cologne on the 15th of May 1992 to a legless mother called Duerty and a father with no ears called Harry. His early life was often of that in poverty, where his mother worked as a bomb tester and his father worked as a road kill remover. Often his father would come home drunk in the evening and threaten to cut off Burakcan's finger nails and his mum on more than one occasion attacked his father with the lawnmower.
    Burakcan's father died in 1995 after committing suicide minutes after sitting through Kevin Costner's "Waterworld". Amazingly though, Burakcan's mother, Duerty still lives and still works in the same profession.
    At the age of 7 Burakcan joined MSV Duisburg's academy and went on to feature for them at the under 12's, under 16's and featured in the youth team final. During his time in the youth team, Kúnt scored 74 goals in 18 matches, getting the record for most goals in one game against Kickers Emden, in which he scored 73 goals in the 142-1 mauling, an interesting fact from that match is also Kúnt scored the own goal.
    Kúnt joined the first team in 2011 and in his first season scored 1 goal in 2 games, but his season was marred by a horrendous injury after just 2 seconds, when he took the kick off with team mate Ranisav Jovanovic. As he attempted to roll the ball to his counterpart, he shattered his metatarsal, tore 3 ligaments in his leg and also broke his ankle. Burakcan was out for 2 weeks in which he fully recovered but went on loan to ironically Kickers Emden. He played 45 games for Emden and scored a total of 17 goals and 6 own goals (all fantastically finished by the way).
    Burakcan Kúnt joined Leicester City on September 1st from MSV Duisburg in a deal reportedly worth around £2.50, a box of Ferrero Rochet and a signed Peter André handbag. Since his move, Kúnt has played 1 and scored 1. Upon scoring his goal Kúnt told the media: "This is why I joined Leicester, before I left Duisburg, my manager told me that Leicester are a bigger club than Real Madrid, and my manager, who is also the worlds richest man and is married to 6 glamour models and has also completed Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 6 does not lie."
    Burakcan Kúnt's contract details are as followed:
    27 year contract
    £20 per second played
    £60 bonus every time he touches the ball
    £100000 bonus if he scores
    £100000 bonus if he doesn't score
    A free banana if he arrives for training on time
    A free Maserati Quattroporté if he arrives late for training
    A free yacht for each time he kicks Nani

    Re: FIFA 13 Official Thread
    for anyone interested in the career mode:
    FIFA's career mode has always felt a little monotonous. Many of the mode's features pass idly by as you sift through match-after-match, ignoring news bulletins detailing the latest transfer rumours, skipping important emails from the suits upstairs. The time spent in menu screens felt like delays between the next game.
    FIFA 13 has placed more importance on the time you spend between matches, with more hype built in and around game-day to create the feel of "Soccer Saturday". Negotiating transfers, reading newsflashes, interacting with players, agents and the board, now has relevance. Instead of the latest news just rolling past in loading screens, match reports and fan reaction will also flash on-screen. Are you not performing as well the board and fans expect? The newspapers will claim your job is on the line, and don't think you have until the end of the season to turn things around, managers can now be sacked mid-season.
    Instead of having to scroll through menus to check how your local rivals performed over the weekend, they will now be read out to you in the "classified results". The Career Mode menu screens now feel more active, with EA seeming to try and recreate your favourite Saturday afternoon sports show. Even during a match, Martin Tyler will hand over to Alan McInally for the latest scores from around the league.
    Diving into the career as Manchester City, with £100,000,000 ready to spend on new players, I was ready to defend the Premier League crown. My first objective, spending the transfer kitty. I started with a mere £28 million investment in Robin Van Persie, after a few negotiations with Mr. Wenger himself, we came to the, admittedly costly sum and RVP was wearing sky blue. After offloading a few players, the kitty was bumped up to in excess of £160 million, lovely. A complete overhaul of most of the team soon followed, and I soon realised how much smoother the transfer market experience is in FIFA 13.
    The transfer market now takes on much more of a management-sim tone. With negotiations taking place over longer periods of time, as well as the ability to view a player's form, happiness and market value all on the same screen. Team will not just outright reject transfer bids, but come back with counter-offers, and you have the ability to offer player-exchange deals.
    During contract negotiations, you can now specify the role a player could have in your team, be it a bench warmer, squad player, or first name on the team sheet. Be careful though, if you tell a player he is crucial to your first team plans, then leave him to rot in the reserves, he will soon become unhappy about the situation, and tell you so. This brings a human element to your squad in FIFA 13. Players will regularly tell you how they feel about an upcoming match, their form, or your decisions via screen pop-ups. Fringe players will be delighted with a run in the first team, and not only tell you in private, but also report their delight or dismay to the press.
    One thing that has been added, continuing the theme of FIFA 13's "unpredictability", is the ability for players to suffer 'freak' injuries outside of matches and training. I lost Samir Nasri for four weeks due to a bizarre accident involving the car doors of his sports car. A crazy story, but again adding to the realism of football.
    Of course, the crux of football management lies in results, and now, if you bring success to your club, the international stage awaits. Smaller nations will approach you earlier on in your career, with the chance to manage higher profile countries the further you progress. Juggling international and club management is a daunting task, as anyone who has played a management sim will attest to, so be prepared.
    It looks like a mode which people sink countless hours into every year just got a whole lot deeper. Be prepared to spend a lot of time immersing yourself in FIFA 13's career, both as a player and manager. I've only scratched the surface of the managerial side of things, and while people may argue these are merely superficial additions to the game, the whole is certainly greater than the sum of its parts.

Often his father would come home drunk in the evening and threaten to cut off Burakcan's finger nails and his mum on more than one occasion attacked his father with the lawnmower.
    Burakcan's father died in 1995 after committing suicide minutes after sitting through Kevin Costner's "Waterworld". Amazingly though, Burakcan's mother, Duerty still lives and still works in the same profession.
    At the age of 7 Burakcan joined MSV Duisburg's academy and went on to feature for them at the under 12's, under 16's and featured in the youth team final. During his time in the youth team, Kúnt scored 74 goals in 18 matches, getting the record for most goals in one game against Kickers Emden, in which he scored 73 goals in the 142-1 mauling, an interesting fact from that match is also Kúnt scored the own goal.
    Kúnt joined the first team in 2011 and in his first season scored 1 goal in 2 games, but his season was marred by a horrendous injury after just 2 seconds, when he took the kick off with team mate Ranisav Jovanovic. As he attempted to roll the ball to his counterpart, he shattered his metatarsal, tore 3 ligaments in his leg and also broke his ankle. Burakcan was out for 2 weeks in which he fully recovered but went on loan to ironically Kickers Emden. He played 45 games for Emden and scored a total of 17 goals and 6 own goals (all fantastically finished by the way).
    Burakcan Kúnt joined Leicester City on September 1st from MSV Duisburg in a deal reportedly worth around £2.50, a box of Ferrero Rochet and a signed Peter André handbag. Since his move, Kúnt has played 1 and scored 1. Upon scoring his goal Kúnt told the media: "This is why I joined Leicester, before I left Duisburg, my manager told me that Leicester are a bigger club than Real Madrid, and my manager, who is also the worlds richest man and is married to 6 glamour models and has also completed Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 6 does not lie."
    Burakcan Kúnt's contract details are as followed:
    27 year contract
    £20 per second played
    £60 bonus every time he touches the ball
    £100000 bonus if he scores
    £100000 bonus if he doesn't score
    A free banana if he arrives for training on time
    A free Maserati Quattroporté if he arrives late for training

The Turkish midfielder who currently plays for Leicester City has been on the lips of many a pundit, fan and manager in recent weeks. Though he has now appeared to of hit the big time, his earlier years were nothing short of miserable.

    BURNLEY FC NEWSDREAM DEBUT FOR WAINWRIGHT


    Sam Wainwright begun his newest managerial venture with a solid 3-1 win against a manager-less Watford in front of the Turf Moor faithful. Wainwright took over the club just over seven days ago and has already made his intentions known by signing 3 players in 5 days.
    Just over 22,000 fans turned out at the Burnley base to witness a strong win from a team who have been anything but in their opening games of the season picking up just 2 points out of a possible 12. The clarets opted to field the same team that played Charlton in the 0-0 draw just 2 days before.
    Fernando Muslera started in goal for the 5th consecutive time this season. In front of him was the ever present Mohamadou Dabo and Achraf Omrani, alongside Omrani was another stand in center back in David Edgar making just his 14th appearance for the club, finally on the left we had Iván Marcano making his 45th appearance for the club.
    In midfield Marvin Bartley played in the center of midfield for just the 3rd time this season, while to his right, Pedro Leon was making his 45th appearance in a row for the clarets. On the other wing, young sensation Adem Ljajic made his 3rd appearance of the season. Playing just in front of them was fan favourite and club captain, Raul Garcia. With an impressive return of 8 goals from Garcia last season, could he go one better this season?
    The strike force up front for the game were Brazilian starlet Souza Andre and Dutch striker Siem De Jong. Both of whom have been told by Wainwright to "Pull up your socks and stand up tall."
    Kick Off
    Burnley started off with a fast pace and a look of intent, within just 4 minutes, Burnley fans would arguably say that Siem De Jong should've put their team 1-0 up, but found himself wanting and dragged the ball wide from just 8 yards. Just seconds later though, Watford produced a stunning bit of football, moving the ball down the left with such speed that it seemed when the ball came to Dominik Kaiser he appeared to be shocked on how easy his team found it to break, and in return, produced an awful cross.
    GOAL!: It didn't take long for SIEM DE JONG to make up for his earlier miss. Just 12 minutes into the game De Jong picks up the ball from a Raul Garcia pass, to turn and shoot from a whole of 25 yards and into the top left corner, a sensational strike and Watford keeper Moraes Artur looks in deep shock.



    After the first goal it appeared that both teams were unsure what to do next. First a scuffle between Marvin Bartley and André Mijatovic results in a yellow card for Bartley for an accidental elbow. Minutes later though it is Mijatovic himself that is booked for pulling on Bartley's shirt. Both teams needed to chill out.
    Now into the 18th minute and Adem Ljajic moved the ball down the left wing, sold Gregory Wijnaldum and produced a peach of a cross towards the on rushing De Jong, only for him to miscue his header from just inside the 6 yard box and clip the cross bar, he should have been celebrating his 2nd.
    Ljajic was looking confident, and seconds later, he found himself against Wijnaldum and Mijatovic, but he needn't have worried, he ran at both and with a little bit of skill and a huge chunk of luck, he came away with the ball and bared down on the keeper, only for him to put it wide from just inside the box.
    As the match moved into the 20th minute, Watford looked to hit back at Burnley where it hurt, a cute chip from Leroy Fer into the box found Alessandro Del Piero's forehead and the ball thundered towards the top corner of the net, only for Muslera to produce a phenomenally acrobatic save and punch it over for a corner. From the resulting corner, Fer ran at Mohamadou Dabo and although what looked like a good tackle from Dabo, the referee pulled them back for the free kick and produced the 3rd yellow card of the game to Dabo.
    A good 10 minutes passed in the game with both teams cancelling each other out, Dabo made a darting run down the right side and although his cross was perfectly weighted, Souza Andre missed his cue to smash it in and the ball spun out for a goal kick to the hornets.
    GOAL!: Burnley strike again, and this time it's center back DAVID EDGAR's turn to grab a goal. The corner was floated in from Pedro Leon and onto the head of De Jong only for Artur to parry out, however when the ball fell to David Edgar, no one expected him to shoot from such a tight angle, but he did, and he made it 2-0 to the hosts with 32 minutes on the clock. Quality finish.



    Since making it 2-0, Burnley started playing the possession game, within the last 15 minutes of the half Burnley has 68% of the possession and Watford looked well and truly out of ideas.
    Half Time: 2-0.
    Second Half
    Within minutes of the teams coming back out onto the pitch, you could tell both teams game plans. Watford, to gain control of the ball and attack when possible, and for Burnley; keep them out for the next 45.
    However within the first 15 minutes no team really took the game by the scruff of the neck and looked as if they wanted the game to finish there and then.
    GOAL!: It's Watford who have scored and it's now 2-1. The game looked to be fizzling out until a wonderful cross from Leroy Fer found the head of PATRICK HERRMANN. A great technique and turn of the head from the young German.



    Straight from the restart you could tell that one thing was clear: Burnley were not happy about conceding that goal. Souza Andre was finally getting himself into the match, firstly tackling Garry Bocaly in his own half and bearing down on goal and striking it under the keeper, only for it to hit the post and run out for a goal kick.
    Minutes later, a cross from Pedro Leon found Siem De Jong in the box, who stood his ground and tried to turn, only for the referee to call him back and book him for having his hands too high on Mijatovic, a correct decision.
    Burnley were all over Watford by now and the Hornets looked nervous. De Jong moved the ball into the box and it was Raul Garcia who slid in at the far post to get his shot in, only for it to hit the side netting, soon after a huge cheer from the fans was clearly encouraging Burnley to keep going forward.
    GOAL!: Burnley make it 3-1! Raul Garcia makes his way into the Watford half and finds SOUZA ANDRE, who immediately spins on the spot and runs into the box and place it under the advancing keeper. 68 minutes gone and it's Game over now surely as Andre hits his second goal of the season.




    Burnley didn't slow down after their 3rd goal either. Raul Garcia found his way through to the edge of the box and turn and shoot only for it to graze the bar, another good strike from Garcia and he looks dangerous.
    Minutes later Ljajic finds Edgar from the corner as Burnley try to make it 4, passing it around the edge of the box and it's Edgar who shoots but puts it horrendously wide, clearly a center backs finish.
    Now with just 10 minutes to go, Burnley still looked to threaten, Pedro Leon makes his way into to box and slips it in towards and on rushing De Jong, only for John Eustace to make a last minute interception and smash the ball into row z.
    Seconds later, Achraf Omrani makes a move forward and plays it to Bartley who runs into the box, and as soon as he tries to pull the trigger, Artur the keeper is on top of the ball and Burnley waste another chance.
    During the last few minutes Watford used whatever gas they had left and went for broke. Alessandro Del Piero headed the ball towards goal from a Herrmann cross, only for Omrani to clear the ball off the line at just the right time.
    With seconds remaining it looked all over for Watford who performed poorly throughout, Del Piero tried to salvage something for the Hornets though, as he broke past the final defender and charged into the box, he found himself up against the impressive Muslera, and impressive he stayed, as he lunged at Del Piero's feet and took the ball straight in his arms with just seconds to play.
    Full Time: 3-1.
    Post Match Review
    New manager Sam Wainwright and his team will be delighted with not only picking up Wainwright's first win for Burnley, but also the Clarets' first win of the season. The midfield was where the game was won for Burnley where Pedro Leon, Adem Ljajic and Raul Garcia all put in great shifts for their team. Muslera was also on form and would've had the perfect game had Herrmann not found the net at the start of the second half. My man of the match award goes to Siem De Jong though. Even though he missed 2 relatively easy chances, he still put one away and looked a constant thorn in the side of the Watford defence. No one had an answer for his great link up play and he looked like his former self tonight.

    WAINWRIGHT UNVEILS NEW SIGNINGS



    Sam Wainwright attended a press conference this afternoon to announce the three new signings he has brought to the club within the last few days. Pacheco Henrique, Isaac Vorsah and Anton Ferdinand were alongside the new Burnley manager for their first conference. Pacheco Henrique was signed from Santos for a reported £5,400,000. The Brazilian is a natural Defensive Midfielder but can play in the center of midfield. Ghanian Isaac Vorsah was brought in from Hoffenheim for an undisclosed fee and finally free agent Anton Ferdinand signed a 3 year contract on £25,000 a week.
    When asked about his new signings, Wainwright explained: "We were short on defensive players and the chairman told me we had about £20,000,000 available in the transfer kitty, I knew Anton was available and I contacted him a couple of weeks ago and at first he sounded a bit reluctant to join but I think I managed to twist his arm. When I heard Vorsah was also transfer listed, I made no hesitation and put a bid in straight away, he is a demon in defence and I know he can help the team out. As for Henrique, it was a pretty big deal, we tried to keep it under wraps and to stop other teams from gazumping us to getting him."
    Ferdinand, Vorsah and Henrique are expected to get their Burnley debuts within the next week either against Preston North End tonight, or at home to Birmingham on Saturday.
