Burnley 1-0 Liverpool

Liverpool’s Spanish coach arrogantly fields weakened side against under-rated, cash-strapped, sleeping giant, injury-hit Lancashire team – and pays the price.

For once with a global television audience (really I’ve just had text messages from people in Italy and Hungary as well as emails from the USA) we gave a great, battling performance with some outstanding work from Richard Chaplow and the ‘poor man’s Ginola’ – our French winger Jean-Louis Valois.

It was a ludicrious own goal that won the match but given our 14-man professional squad doesn’t actually include a genuine out and out striker (and we had to sell our best player Robbie Blake the other week) we’ll gladly accept gifts.

And we deserved it.

Up the Clarets.
