Ahead of tonight's clash against Burnley, I spoke with former cricket teammate and Burnley fan Pete Gledhill about all things Clarets.
How long have you been a Burnley fan?
Started watching aged 8/9
Who was your most memorable player?
Ian Wright. Signing him in league 1. He was unbelievable.
What was your most prominent moment as a Burnley fan?
Having to beat Leyton Orient in the last game of the 1987 season to stay in the football league, that day was the start of our revival.
You've made a brilliant start to the league this season, did you expect such a good run of performances?
Yes expected a good start but obviously surprised we've walked away from Anfield, Stamford Bridge and Wembley with 5 points
You signed two players from us in the summer in Chris Wood and Charlie Taylor, what's your opinion on them both?
Chris Wood has obviously settled well with 2 goals in his first 2 games. Looks a really good player that suits the way we play and is different to our other attacking options.
Bit early to say with Charlie Taylor
He played well in a cup game but he has his work cut out trying to replace Stephen Ward at left back. There's probably more chance of him getting a game on the left wing
Apart from them, how do you feel about this summers recruitment?
Overall a good summer of transfer window. Obviously lost our 2 star players, probably similar to you guys with Chris Wood , but they both only had a year left on their contract so we have to sell to compete and made good profit on both, players have too much power it seems. But signed 7 new players to strengthen squad. Just short of a centre back and a bit of pace/trickery on the wing.
History favours Leeds in the clash with the Whites winning 30 out of 59 games between both sides. However, Leeds have not won in our last four meetings, what do you expect to see in the game?
At home so expecting a win but bit nervous of the excellent start you guys have made coupled with how many changes we will make but I'd guess Leeds will make plenty of changes too with your current league position.
Who are your three to be Promoted from the Championship this season?
Middlesbrough , Sheff Weds (Burnley reserves) and Fulham so they all need to go on a good run!
Who do you think will be relegated from the Premier League this year?
Any 3 from Palace, Swansea, West Ham and Brighton.
Prediction and scorers for Tuesdays clash?
Wood and Arfield
We'd like to thank Pete for taking the time to answer our questions and wish him the best for the next cricket season (not football).
