Dream Teams: Burnley
Wednesday 27 May 2009
Not only was Wade Elliott's 25-yard screamer against Sheffield United in Monday's Championship Playoff final worth £60m, it has also earned his side a timely and deserved inclusion in our Dream Team series.
Owen Coyle's men will add a refreshing brand of community-based football spirit to next season's Premier League and, if the evidence of Coyle's higher profile during this season's attention-grabbing cup runs is anything to go by, the Burnley manager won't suffer the same delusions of grandeur that so afflicted Hull's Phil Brown.
