You’re kidding, that’s a massive shock, Burnley have been steadily improving, to go to Turf Moor on a cold evening, the coldest ground in football and pull off a win, that’s very, very special! You’d have got massive odds on a B’mouth win.

The league is more important than the cup to Burnley. Pragmatic approach by Dyche in selecting a team with a blend of experience and youth, plus giving valuable competitive game time to them. Certainly had a competitive one tonight and fair play to Bournemouth.

There are new owners and I would hope for the Burnley fans that they told the manager to take a cautious view for this year while they get familiar with the club. If League survival every year is the limit of their ambition, I would suggest the fans would be better to stay away when grounds are re-opened for spectators.

So what are your expectations? Premier League status IMO is the priority for the club. A good cup run is a bonus. I recall when Burnley qualified for Europe a few years back then struggled with the extra fixtures. The current fixture list is probably worse. That said, I think they expected to win tonight.

Oh dear Burnley. A missed opportunity there I feel. Has Dyche got no ambitions.

I'm sure Dyche would spend money if he could - but reality is that survival is more important than a competition that realistically they won't win. If this was the semi then I'm sure they would name the strongest line up possible - but they're away at Palace on Saturday and that game is more important than this.

So basically as a Burnley fan we can expect nothing under Dyche other than premier league survival year after year at best - how exciting is that! Give me Championship football every Saturday and the prospect of promotion or playoffs or a cup run. Anything which brings a bit of excitement for a fan rather than millions for a board who haven’t the same passion

Doesn't Dyche get 5% of any fee if they sell academy players? Not trying to be cynical I like Burnley and don't like the snobbery towards them, but he's not gonna mix up his Premier League 11 when they are battling relegation and perhaps just uses the cup to try and give game time and exposure to some potential commission? Not that it worked if he is.

I'm sure Dyche would spend money if he could - but reality is that survival is more important than a competition that realistically they won't win.
