Sean Dyche has revealed some frustration with journalists' persistent questioning of his future at Burnley.
When asked in today's press conference about the vacant manager's job at Everton, again, he said:
"It's amazing you're still asking, as I've said plenty of times I am just getting on with my job here. Are you still seriously going down this road?!
"I'm at the stage I've always been at, I've had plenty of speculation, in a good way mostly, and that's part and parcel of everything we've achieved here. You get interest, whether it's me or my players. But I'm still here, simple as that."
Burnley defender Jack Cork, hopes Dyche will stay and continue his work at the club:
"I would like him to stay, he's shown faith bringing me here and I'd like to repay that," said the former Swansea player.
"There's not many English managers with a CV like his in the game, especially with what he's done at this club. He's got two promotions to his name and keeping the team up last year was a great achievement.
"If something does happen it's out of our control, we've got to keep doing what we're doing."

You get paid ridiculous sums of money and part of the reason for that is the fans interest in the game, transfers, injuries, rumour and so on. I am not the press's biggest fan however, this is surely part and parcel of management. And the reporting is part of what keeps those fans interested.
If I was being paid £1 million a year, they could ask me what the hell they like!!!

Now, we may speak to his agent and see if he's interested. Illegal for sure, but we must have done so. Because it's illegal, it'll be kept quiet about. If Dyche was not interested, he would say he is going nowhere and keep saying so.

Just listen to what's not being said. He's interested for sure.

Silly fact I read somewhere. They took a photo of all the managers watches to see who had the most bling on their wrist. Was very surprised to see mr Dyche at the top of the list. £45k watch 45k!

Got to have a decent watch. You'd think with a £45k watch he'd be able to make good halftime substitutions, unlike our former manager.

This er... illegal business. You know, the "tapping up of managers" in situ was this regulation in place when Moyes was being pursued by the shower down the East Lancs? The ones we roll over for to have our tummy tickled?
Or Koeman at Saints?

Chris Coleman has managed 4 different club teams: Fulham, Real Sociedad, Coventry and AEL from Greece.

From what I have heard, he would expect the same freedoms elsewhere taking his coaches with him. This would mean ditching Walsh and probably Unsworth, Ferguson and Co too. That may be why he hasn't been approached. That and the belief that English coaches aren't as good as continental ones.

The same with Silva what does it say about him. Just started a new job and ups and away to us. It makes him look just like a foreign mercenary. If Koeman had done the business for us and we were top half of the league, there would be a riot if he was poached.
Things are improving, these potential new arrivals will do no better than Unsworth is at the present. I would like to know where Vlasic is though, and how Barkley is coming along.

However, for me it's his record at Olympiacos that's most impressive. Under his stewardship they won their first SEVENTEEN domestic matches of the 2015-16 season, eventually winning the Greek title (Superleague Greece) with ease. They also trounced Arsenal in the Champions League.
Cracking young manager. Don't think we'll get him though.

In the Champions League, Olympiacos went into the final group game above Arsenal on points (beat them 3-2 in the first meeting). Arsenal proceeded to demolish Olympiacos 3-0 to knock them out of Champions League.
I think they went straight out of the Europa League too. A win or a draw and Silva's team would have went through. Kind of a choke job in a big game by him, isn't it?
