Burnley 2024/25 Championship Odds: Clarets 2/1 for promotion following Scott Parker appointment

After suffering an immediate return to the Championship last season, Burnley will be bidding for a yo-yo effect once more in the campaign ahead, with Scott Parker the new man in charge at Turf Moor.

The Clarets are well versed in getting out of England's second tier and they are priced at 2/1 to be promoted from the Championship in 2024/25.

Burnley looking for another rebound

New Burnley boss Scott Parker will be only too happy to try and continue the Clarets recent yo-yo trend as he sets into his tenure at Turf Moor.

Burnley have enjoyed decent Premier League exposure since they ended a 33-year absence from the top flight in 2009.

Since their relegation in May 2022, however, it's been a case of up-and-down. Vincent Kompany was appointed manager and the former Manchester City Premier League-winning captain steered the club back to the top flight with an impressive title win in the 2022/23 Championship season.

Things did not go to plan, however, and Burnley finished second from bottom in the top flight last time out, winning only five of their 38 games.

Parker's pedigree in the Championship

Now Burnley have turned to Parker, the former Fulham and Bournemouth boss who has been out of the dugout since departing Club Brugge in March 2023 after just 12 matches in charge.

Parker has Championship pedigree having achieved promotion with both the Cottagers and the Cherries.

He took Fulham up via the play-offs in 2019/20, beating Brentford in the Wembley showpiece, and had Bournemouth back amongst the big boys after finishing second and gaining automatic promotion in 2021/22 – when they finished a couple of points behind his former club.

Getting out of the second tier of English football is no ordinary task. The demands of a 46-game season, with possible cup runs and play-offs to consider, are intense and the need to keep going with midweek games more often than not is quite unique.

Burnley are clearly content to be putting their faith in a manager with a solid track record at this level.

Parting with Kompany after torrid season

There was plenty of fanfare and no shortage of excitement when Kompany brought Burnley back to the top flight.

The ex-centre back did so with an incredible haul of 103 points, losing only three times in 46 league games and with a superb winning tally of 29.

A sorry season of Premier League pain followed. Often, the Burnley boss was questioned for sticking resolutely to his principled style of play.

The attacking verve that dominated the Championship was exposed at a higher level and Burnley's fate looked sealed a long way before the finish line.

Changes to be made

Burnley have already witnessed Bailey Peacock-Farrell, Charlie Taylor, Jack Cork and Johann Berg Gudmundsson leave the club so far this summer. There's rumoured interest in Dara O'Shea from Brendan Rodgers and Celtic as they aim to build for the Champions League.

Parker will want to put his own stamp on the Clarets squad and quickly. As a manager in the second tier of English football he has won 48 of his 92 matches in charge, amassing 1.84 points per match.

Parker was himself a stylish central midfielder, with the likes of Charlton, Newcastle, West Ham, Tottenham and Fulham and he won 18 England caps.

He struggled to adapt to the Premier League demands at both Fulham and Bournemouth. He couldn't prevent the Cottagers’ relegation and he was sacked by Bournemouth four games into the season after they were hit for nine goals by Liverpool.

Burnley are placing their trust in his Championship credentials, however, and the Lancashire outfit will hope to be second-tier hotpots once more in 2024/25.
