Burnley fans dress up Jack Walker statue

Burnley fans dress up Jack Walker statue

A group of Burnley fans have dressed the statue of the late Jack Walker in the club`s kit ahead of the eagerly anticipated East Lancs derby this weekend.

Showing previously unseen intelligence and sense humour, the Burnley fans descended on the statue outside Ewood Park in the evening to add more spice to the weekend fixture.

We are not allowed to show pics on the site but for a look at the statue please click on the link below (provided by the Telegraph) -

This attempt is likely to upset the majority of Rovers fans due to Jack Walker being an iconic Blackburn figure.

To add insult to injury, word has reached us that Burnley were able to speed up their prank by making full use of the seven extra fingers at their disposal - an incredible 22 fingers were used by the three pranksters in this assault on a club figurehead.

Furthermore, the three assailants have discovered since this cowardly act that they are in fact all related, they share the same mother/sister/auntie/uncle/hamster. The hooligans have declined to comment due to further embarrassment.

I've been thinking about this and if this happened at another club, I'd laugh. So I think it's just fans doing what they do - however - I think it will make us more eager to beat them and I think it will come back to bite them as mikey says

I've got to say I know where you are coming from, it angers us because it happened to us but we would laugh at others. Loving the sven fingers and all being related twist though Mr Mikey, very comical.

If our team fail to beat those Burnley- basterds on sunday, we have to take the law in our hand and fight on the beaches and kick their silly asses. I go all the way from Norway to join you :) - i heard a nice and drunk middle age guy in Valley sing; seven miles up north, we got Burnley, WE FAKKIN HATE BURNLEY. And yes pinty; we all agree
