The Curse of Turf Moor

Burnley 1 (Blake 65) - 0 Plymouth Argyle

The Burnley report says "If you need a win, call Plymouth Argyle" and how the truth really hurts. Turf Moor is more than a banana skin for the Pilgrims - it's the pit of death. Argyle have not won in Burnley for 37 years, make that 38 now, and didn't seem even remotely interested in attempting to score. If you thought that the "performance" against Cardiff was bad enough, then don't bother reading the match reviews for Burnley. Have the squad taken January off on an extended away game holiday? It was a relief that we were still 0-0 at half time, and even when we went 1-0 down, there was no impetuous to even try and equalise. Why bother turning up? What about people who got up early and spent £50 to watch 11 blokes going for a walk in the park? Suffice to say that next season, Turf Moor will be off the menu for away games.

As there was so little positive to talk about, rather than write an extended ranting match report, you can find the official site report here. Or better still read this.

Last season was the "Week of Hell", is this now the "Month of Hell"?
