Police warn Dunn of "prankster" Burnley fans

The countdown to the second installment of Burnley v Blackburn is ON!!!

Local Lancashire Police have warned Rovers player David Dunn that his home could be targeted for vandalism by Burnley fans - with a threat to paint his house Claret and Blue!

Dunn, who actually lives in Blackburn, unlike a lot of others Rovers stars who live in Manchester, is a prime target for Burnley in the run up to the big game on March 28.

Dunn scored a corker against our six fingered friends back in October and celebrated wildly in front of them to really rub it in.

Now Dunn has benn singled out for a 'prank', perhaps by Burnley fans jealous of the fact their best player is a headbutting overweight goalkeeper.

First in a long line of rivarly based antics! But this is surely not a prank... more of a criminal act!

I'm nervous about this game, form & league position go out of the window for derbies, I might have a few quid on the Dingles, I'll get good odds and that way if we lose it won't be too bad ;-)

comon lads! teach the dingles a lesson or two aye!....for our local derby in the rugby league (im a st george fanatic, cronulla is the enemy), we ordered 4km of Police/FBI tape in the st george colours (red and white). We then visited Shark park (cronulla's home ground) , wrapped up the outer edge of their stadium, then painted the 4 main entry doors red and white!! that taught em lol

I have to admit that these dingle pranks are quite funny! Quite clever for inbreds... which means they must have a mastermind controlling them (obviously they won't be from Burnley)

It's more likely to happen if things like this are broadcast to the world via the media isn't it. (I'm not moaning at you Mt Mikey)
