“Soccer" Burnley

Like Wolverhampton, Burnley was among the dozen founding clubs of the Football League in 1888. This club has won the English title twice, doing so in 1921 and 1960. Burnley F.C. also won the FA Cup in 1914, the Community Shield in 1960 and 1973. Burnley, Wolverhampton, Preston North End, Sheffield United, and Portsmouth are the only teams to win all the four divisions of English football. They finished 15th in the final table during the previous term and earned a total of 40 points. They were also participants in the FA Cup, EFL Cup, and UEFA Europa League, the latter being their first time to qualify in a European Tournament in over 50 years.

These are the players on the roster of Burnley FC as of July 11, 2019:

1 GK Tom Heaton (captain), 2 DF Matthew Lowton, 3 DF Charlie Taylor, 4 MF James Cork, 5 DF James Tarkowski, 6 DF Ben Mee (vice-captain), 7 MF Johann Berg Gudmundsson, 9 FW Chris Wood, 10 FW Ashley Barnes, 11 MF Dwight McNeil, 12 MF Robbie Brady, 13 MF Jeff Hendrick, 14 DF Ben Gibson, 16 Steven Defour, 18 MF Ashley Westwood, 19 FW Jay Rodriguez, 20 GK Joe Hart, 21 FW Nahki Wells, 23 DF Erik Pieters, 25 MF Aaron Lennon, 26 DF Phil Bardsley, 27 FW Matej Vydra, 28 DF Kevin Long, 29 GK Nick Pope, 30 GK Adam Legzdins, 31 MF Josh Benson, 32 FW Agyei, 34 DF Jimmy Dunne, 42 MF Ali Koiki

“Soccer" Who Wins?

After spending big time in the summer of 2018, Wolverhampton had one of their most successful seasons ever, finishing 7th in the final table while securing a spot in this season’s Europa League. With wins over the likes of  Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, and Manchester, this is a squad that is moving in a forward direction. The odds for this match aren’t out yet but Wolverhampton should be the soccer betting favorites to win this match.

Burnley could do no better than 15th place last season. But they head to the season without the distraction of European Football which really hurt their cause during the previous term. Burnley was in good form during the preseason with four wins and one loss in six matches. They showed an improved defense and a more cohesive offense. Sean Dyche has also signed a couple of new guys to bolster last year’s squad. But as everyone says, it’s hard to gauge how good a team is until it’s showtime at the start of the season

But Wolverhampton has bought well during the transfer season, picking up a total of eight players led by Raul Jimenez, Leander Dendoncker and Patrick Cutrone. The Wolves also didn’t suffer any major losses during the summer so, this year’s squad looks better on paper than last season’s team. I’m picking Wolverhampton to beat Burnley on 8/24/19.
