13 August ~ Burnley are back in the Premier League and kick off their campaign today at home to Swansea, and there’s little doubt their fans would be delighted with a repeat of the 1960-61 season. Then Burnley, defending League champions, made it to the fifth round of the FA Cup where they met today’s opponents.
