On the honours list Burnley together with Wolves are the only clubs to have won every division in the old football league i.e Divisions 1,2,3 and 4. All we need now is the Championship and the Premier to set an all time record. So a win on Sat will help us on our way. Incidentally Burnley also held for many years the record run of unbeaten games in one season until the incredible Arsenal unbeaten run.
