BSAD imageIt wasn’t supposed to end like this, was it? Not with a pretty comprehensive defeat against a side that is the very definition of the word “functional”. Not with ninth place, perching uncomfortably between the playoffs and the mid-table wastelands. Not with farewell waves and kisses in front of hundreds of rudely intruding Burnley fans, held back by a fragile line of police and stewards. Not with the bitterness and acrimony that surrounds the simultaneous departures of Messrs Jackett, Blissett and Walley.

Then again, it wasn’t supposed to end at all. Fairytales always conclude with “happily ever after”.
