'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Eddie talks exit reasoning

Having signed up for the Turf Moor revolution, David Edgar spoke to the Ronnie Gill today to outline exactly why he has ended up at Burnley and why he didn't decide to sign on again at NUFC. Speaking to the paper the defender said:

"It was a difficult decision to leave, but it seems for the best. Moving to Burnley for me was too good an opportunity to turn down. I was happy with the direction this club is taking.

But it is down to playing time for me more than anything. I am 22 and I`ve got to be playing first-team football.

The situation at Newcastle probably made it easier for me to make the decision. But Newcastle is my second home and, having spent eight years there, it has been tough.

I still feel for everybody up there and I am sorry to be leaving a lot of good people behind. Life goes on for me now. But I`d like to think when I played I gave 110% effort.

Who knows what might have happened if I`d played a few more games - I might have established myself there. But it wasn`t to be and I have to move on now."

Just face it you bottled it. You knew you would get more games in the championship. Newcastle will be expected to win games next season as we are the bookies favourites to win the championship. However Burnley will be expected to lose every game so no presure. Just admit it, coward
