For many fans, football is about hope.
You get into the game and follow your club on the slim, often unfulfilled promise that it might reward you at some point. All those home games spent glum as you're turned over by a team you expected to beat, all those away trips with an outward journey of optimism and a return sat in grim silence.
They're all done in the belief that one day, somehow, your beautiful club will come good, reach new heights, travel to Spain, to Germany, to Italy, play at the San Siro. And you'll be there to see it.
For Burnley supporters that moment is within touching distance.
