Crisis for Burnley manager Sean Dyche as defender David Edgar goes home for birth of child

BURNLEY boss Sean Dyche has had his defence depleted going into the final game of the season, after granting David Edgar permission to return to Canada for the birth of his first child.

Although the versatile Canadian international has been deployed in midfield in most of his appearances under Dyche, Edgar has been more recognised at centre half at Turf Moor.

With Michael Duff suspended for Saturday’s visit of Ipswich Town, following his dismissal in the 2-1 win at Wolves, and both Kevin Long and Ben Mee doubtful through injury Edgar could have been called upon as defensive cover.

But Edgar, who scored a late equaliser to secure a point at home to champions Cardiff in his penultimate game, asked if he could return to his native country to be with his fiancee for their imminent arrival.

Dyche confirmed: “David asked if he could go home and I have absolutely no issue with that because family always comes first.”

Edgar will now not return to the club until pre-season training in late June.

However, there will be plenty of football to keep him occupied over the summer as well as fatherhood, as the 25-year-old is set to be involved in Canada’s CONCACAF Gold Cup games in American cities Los Angeles, Seattle and Denver.

The Canucks have been drawn in a group with Mexico, Panama and Martinique, and will also play a friendly with Costa Rica.

In the meantime, Burnley boss Dyche will be considering his options for a central defensive partner for captain Jason Shackell this weekend.

Duff stepped up off the bench at Molineux after Long went down in the warm-up with a tight calf.

It is possible the former Cork City youngster could recover in time to return to the side for the season finale.

  • BURNLEY’S development squad were beaten 2-1 in a behind closed doors game with Sunderland yesterday.

Luke O’Neill scored with a header from Steven Hewitt’s corner to give the Clarets an early lead before the Black Cats hit back.

Another wheel falls off the brown envelope of domestic football. If BFC was a kid it would be ginger and pale like dicky van dykio with ears like an elephant. All dressed in brown stay pressed crimplene, with highly polished brown shoes and matching brown belt A static discharge warning for close proximity to metal objects would be vital
BFC, purple with a hint of manila and a faded vauxhaull chevette blue. A colour combination that begs for the reintroduction of black and white TV.
Like magnolia except half as exciting. The tank top, Birmingham bags and 4 inch stacks of the english game. Faded, obscure and should be given to charity, but even charity won't take them. An empty cardboard box of a club. But the traffic wardens and train spotters seem to like it. It seems to attract others on the fringes of society. Theres a program on sky at the minute about people who get intimate with strange objects like blending machines, I wonder if they'll do a special for you guys and girls.

Now the flywheels fallen off. The article is about losing a defender from an already depleted side, hence wheel falling off.
The rest of the above post is about how boring you are as a visual stimulant.
Babies are ace, They like colourful things. Burnley are a brown envelope.

I should stick to your own laughing stock of a club.

Having been mentioned numerous amounts of times in the media , where they even used the word "comical" and many more words could have been used to described the failings of BRFC.

Now as also mentioned in the media the play off places up for grabs and the relegation spots to be filled, listed the teams still involved in the relegation fight.

Low and behold BRFC are still not safe and listed in that scrap. Though It's likely that shambles of a club will survive just.

So little boy , get your PJs on, straight jacket fastened up , night light on and your medication taken and make sure your little teddy bear is on your pillow. Oh remind the nurses to lock the door on there way out.
