Burnley FC - The surprise package of 2018
The 2018/19 Premier League season marked Burnley's third top-tier campaign in succession. Under manager Sean Dyche, the previous campaign was an unprecedented success, characterised by composed play and defensive preservation. The Clarets' reward was a 7th place finish and a first-ever appearance in the Europa League, making Burnley FC tickets even more of a hot sell on StubHub than ever!
A defining Premier League season
It seems as though there will be more of the same from Burnley. The squad's focal point appears to be a defence that can be watertight when fully fit. An illustrious 2017/18 season saw goalkeeper Nick Pope and central defender James Tarkowski marshal the backline in a highly efficient manner, with both men also becoming England internationals during the spring. The headline arrival of defender Ben Gibson in the summer of 2018 was another indication that Dyche continued to value preservation above all else. Striker Matej Vydra arrived at the same time from Derby, however, and with the Czech international being the Football League Championship's top scorer of 2017/18, he is anything but goal-shy! This can only make the buying and selling of Burnley FC tickets more of a hot trend than ever. After years of being seen as little more than a club doomed to yo-yo between the first and second tier, the club - along with its fans - is looking up rather than down!
The great tale of Burnley FC
For a true sense of what 'real' English football is like, look no further than the Clarets! Founding members of the inaugural Football League in 1888, the East Lancashire club, which finds itself at home at Turf Moor, is a respected entity of English football. Success was not long in coming for the team then known as the 'Turfites', with a Lancashire Cup triumph over Blackburn Rovers in 1890. It would, however, be after the Second World War that the club grew exponentially. The 1960s brought sporadic appearances in European competition, but then came three decades characterised by decline before the Clarets surged again in the 2000s, after being promoted from the third tier in 2000 under Stan Ternent. Nine years later, the Clarets reached the Premier League for the first time ever. Though it has taken a lot of effort and numerous setbacks, the club is in better shape than ever, and there has never been a better time than now to buy Burnley FC tickets on StubHub!
