Burnley FC new player in and out 2017/18. Here is the Burnley FC Squad 2017/18 (First Team)
Burnley Football Club is a Premier League club based in the North of England. They got promoted to the league in 2016 and therefore are relatively new to the Premier League. They have been in the league before but have never lasted more than one season at a time. In the 2016/17 season, they managed to survive Premier League relegation for the first time. They are doing well and establishing themselves as a solid Premier League side.
Burnley Football Club’s nicknames are The Clarets which is a direct reference to the colour of their home kit. Claret is the distinctive colour of Burnley FC.
The rivals of Burnley are other local northern teams such as Blackburn Rovers, Bolton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic. Burnley FC pride themselves on saying that they are currently doing better than all of their rivals. Bolton will be in the Championship next season, whereas Wigan and Blackburn will both be playing League 1 football.
The top level of English football is where Burnley Football Club plays. Burnley were a relatively unknown club just a few years ago, but they are building a bigger fanbase and reputation. Their home ground is known as Turf Moor.
They have been playing at this stadium since 1883, although it has been redeveloped many times over the years. It is a very old ground and the capacity is small. There is a 21,800 seat capacity, which is relatively small for a Premier League side. Maybe they will look to expand their stadium soon if they can sustain their Premier League status.
Burnley have been improving their squad this summer ahead of the 2017/18 season. After a successful 2015/16 season winning the Championship, they were prepared for a tough first season back in the Premier League. However, 2016/17 turned out to be a successful season where they finished comfortably clear of the relegation places.
The Burnley FC line up 2017/18 season will consist of these players. You can read of their salaries here.
Burnley’s goalkeeping options are quite good as they have one of the best English goalkeepers out there. Tom Heaton has been praised for his fantastic performances over the last 12 months and continues to get better s time goes on. He has been linked with moves away to bigger clubs but right now, he is staying put at Burnley.
Burnley suffered a big blow this summer after they sold their star defender Michael Keane to Everton. Keane was a top player and the Toffees have got a good deal in the current market for £25million. Burnley haven’t really replaced him either, Sean Dyche instead opting to keep faith in the options already available to him. Time will tell whether or not this will cost them or not.
In the midfield, Burnley have some good players. They have recently re-signed Jack Cork from Swansea City for £8.19million. They also have the masterful free-kick taker Robbie Brady, who scored some very important goals for the Clarets last season.
Again, Burnley have some good players going forward, but they have sold one of their better players in Andre Gray. They have brought in Jonathan Walters, who is a good player but not at the same quality of Gray. Chris Wood also joined on a record deal from Leeds, but they need to hope that players like Ashley Barnes and Sam Vokes can step up this season because there may be a lack of goals if they don’t.
