Burnley aren't mad ..

they paid the going rate for a Premier League goalkeeper when both of their international standard goalkeepers were out for long term injuries 

thats how it rolls .

The bar is set in that division and its bled over into the championship over the years.. that's why we are in "châteaux neuf du pap" as a result !!

The likes of Shearer etc  were on circa 45k -  25 years ago its nothing by comparison now...

No I doubt that ..he's only got a year and a half left on his contract, these guys are looking for the next big deal at that point and Hart will be looking for a biggy ,it may be his last biggy ?

He will be going to a promoted championship club...... 

Joe Hart came to Burnley when they had only one fit goalkeeper available and he was gash ...

Heaton was injured and also had a very well documented spat with the club at the time ..

And Pope was long term injured ..

Before they were promoted Burnley's wage cap was 25k per week the club and older players were given less and shorter contract renewals as part of club policy hence how we ended up with Jones & Boyd..(we offered them longer better deals ..

This is also the reason Andre Gray toddled off to Watford because he was trying to engineer a huge pay rise mid contract in line with Premier League "norm wages". and Dyche wasnt having any of that !!!

 Burnley had to bring in Joe Hart he wasn't a luxury .....

They will sell him and probably make a profit on his purchase cost or at worst break even ...

Its now circa 50 Wage cap at Burnley  not very high for premier league teams by comparison to others ..

as an aside Mr Wilder will have to fall into line with premier League wage structures if he wants to attract big players now .

Heads get turned very quickly in that league.....

 

 

 

So.….………………  Pope ain't actually dead, huh ? Just long term injured   ????

I saw him on footie focus prior to an FA cup game against Chelsea, all they seemed interested in was him driving a fast car.

And some people called him a Fancy Dan.

if bruce  only wants to offer him a one year deal but westwood will  only sign a 2 year deal then i'd be backing bruce on this one ……..the manager as to do what he thinks is best for the club westwood understandably will do whats best for him …... the club as to come first before any player no matter how popular they are .

Surely a one year option on top. Surely.

I think we have to weigh up how much it would cost to sign another keeper of the same quality as Westwood . Personally i think giving Westwood a two year deal would be more cost  effective .

Remember we got Westwood on a free, so it is in theory possible to get a replacement of a similar standard on the cheap, but the stars need to align, so there's one available at the moment we could get.

12 month contract review it in January can't see a problem let him do what's right for him

Knowing our luck he'd play 90% of games up to January, sign a year's extension then be out for the rest of the season and then start of the next lol

No doubt Bruce will have been weighing up the pro's con's and variables and decided on only a year. 

We have 2 young keepers if we'd sent them out on loan to get proper experience wouldn't be far off ready now. 

 

What if Westwood gets injured and either Joe or cam come back in and under Bruce's staff really start to push on past him?? 

We get stuck with a 35/36 year old keeper on a big wage twiddling his thumbs again and taking up precious FFP wages we could use elsewhere. 

It may happen, it may not, it's hyperthetical.
