Dyche is the victim of one of modern football’s great success stories – The Athletic

When the news broke that Sean Dyche had become just another leadership statistic, it was difficult not to conclude that football had once again reminded us what a tenacious industry it can be. It all seems so sudden, so unexpected and, when you think back to everything he has done for this club, so completely without gratitude.

Maybe that’s just the industry Dyche is in. Maybe we should all be hardened on how football works. But has it only been nine days since that 3-2 win over Everton ended with Turf Moor standing up to praise the man whose importance to Burnley felt somehow different to managers at other clubs?

Even as Burnley’s position began to become critical again after losing to Norwich City, there was little appetite among the club’s supporters to guillotine the manager.

The idea of ​​a ‘Dyche Out’ banner popping up or mutinies against the manager being heard would have been almost unbelievable. Nobody really knew that their job was in jeopardy. Dyche has been there since 2013 and more importantly his performances during that time need to be put into context. Given the size of the city and the fact that it would be possible to house Burnley’s entire population at Wembley, it was quite a run.

Obviously the people at the top of the club saw things differently and decided that with Dyche at the helm there would be no escapology for the Premier League’s third from bottom team. Their decision to sack the 50-year-old is basically an admission that they believed relegation was inevitable. Dyche is the victim of one of modern football’s great success stories – The Athletic
