Sean Dyche praised Tom Heaton’s professionalism after his club captain made his first Premier League appearance in 476 days against West Ham. Heaton was recalled in place of ever-present Joe Hart, for his first League start since he dislocated his shoulder against Crystal Palace in September 2017. The England international has hinted he might have to assess his options in January if he continued to struggle for opportunities, but came in and kept a clean sheet - only a fifth of the season - with the highlight a magnificent stop to claw away a late Andy Carroll header.Dyche said: “Joe’s done well for us, he’s a quality keeper and a quality professional, as a bloke as well. He was the first to jump up when Tom made the save right at the end.“There’s a big respect for him around here, and a big decision coming - you’ve got three England goalkeepers, and all high quality.“Tom showed that today. The thing I’m pleased with is Tom keeps … [Read more...] about Burnley boss Sean Dyche hails Tom Heaton’s professionalism

A paradox stalks modern markets. Many professional investors tell us that they do not like the results of most recent elections, though they would – I am sure – also tell us they think democracy is the best system of government. Their dislike of President Trump has not stopped them bidding US shares up to new highs. Investors are rightly wary of authoritarian regimes and single-party states, and usually apply a discount to the shares in these markets. Such arrangements, after all, make good company governance more difficult and fail to expose government decisions to sufficient criticism to try to improve the quality of those choices. In some cases, dictators corrupt private-sector companies operating in their territories, or subject them to policy changes that do not respect property rights. Populism is popular In the last few years, many market people have also expressed their dislike of President Trump, of Brexit, of the two winning parties in the Italian General … [Read more...] about Why is populism so unpopular with professional investors?
