With the season only one game old, it appears that relegation favourites Burnley, are living up to their billing following a 2-0 defeat away at Stoke City.
Manager, Owen Coyle told us:
"It's no looking good. If we cannae scrape a result at Stoke then I cannae see us doing too well at Old Trafford or the Emirates. I'm beginning tae think ah wuz maybe a wee bit rash in turning doon the Celtic job."
Burnley, the smallest town ever to be represented by a Premier League Club, as they never seem to tire of telling us, is a community in crisis, driven together by the plight of the football club.
"If we do go down," Burnley fan Jaffa Jeffries of neighbouring Padiham, told us. "We'll go down fighting. It's the Burnley way. We love a good set-to."
"Well said mate," said Jaffa's mate, Stag. "We might lose at the football but we'll bust a few heads along the way."
So it looks like it's curtains for the Clarets by general concensus.
The Spoof.com would like to emphasize that it in no way endorses violence. It was them. They suggested it.
Update: Foot in mouth time.
