With Others Splashing Cash, Burnley Must Build On Top Half Finish

Burnley finished the 2019/20 season in 10th place, a second top half finish for Sean Dyche's men in the past four seasons. For a small, unfashionable club who don't like to spend much money to last four years in the Premier League is impressive enough. To get one top half finish is a massive achievement, to get two is almost unheard of.

Ambitious Brighton Can Target a Top Half Finish With The Right Moves

The 2019/20 season has to go into the books as a success for Brighton, after Graham Potter led the Seagulls to a 15th place finish. It wasn't just that they'd finished 15th, something they'd also accomplished under Chris Hughton in 2017/18, it was how they did it.
