That Turf Moor Jinx

We never bloody win at Turf Moor. We might say this about a lot of grounds, but in the case of Burnley's home ground it's actually true. This has been on TiFF before but it emphasises the point so well I thought I'd reproduce it here as well - a total of 28 consecutive games in the league and cup of which we have drawn just five and won none. Roy's stated the importance of the cups to us already and it would be fantastic to go on a proper cup run this season. Fingers crossed eh?

Chopper - that's an amazing record. The law of averages must work in your favour at some point?

That's what I thought in 2003! I had overlooked the fact that we could draw the game but then go through on penalties. That would at least get us into the next round whilst not actually break the jinx.

Of course I know deep down if it goes to penalties Burnley will still win!
