Hendrick key to change in our fortune!
It seems we will never catch a break when it cups to any cup we’re in.
The squad that Dyche put out against Burton looked like they really meant business and as was repeated by several clarets before, it would have only been four games until Wembley and even another chance at Europa (we can dream, anyway).
Yet, we did the most Burnley thing achievable and played badly against a championship side and that’s it, out the cup.
Is the FA Cup something we can look towards now then? It certainly doesn’t feel that way and if you look at our FA Cup record, not a chance.
So we concentrate on the league and SURELY off the back of such a brilliant win against Bournemouth, there has got to be more of the same round the corner for us.
We face Cardiff away, who by all accounts have probably had a better start to the season then we have.
We now sit in 16th place, out of the drop zone, but as time will only tell with teams below 10th in the league, it could slip away from us quite easily.
We’ve got to keep on pushing and make the bad start to the season a very distant memory before time runs out.
