SEAN DYCHE showed it was snow holds barred for his hardman reputation.
The grinning Burnley manager wore just a shirt and tie as he strolled around the white-carpet Turf Moor pitch while heavy snow streamed down and forced off the clash with Tottenham.
The Clarets had hoped to sleigh struggling Spurs and move out of the drop zone.
And although ref Peter Bankes asked for the snow to be swept away, he eventually postponed Sunday’s match after speaking to Dyche and Tottenham chief Antonio Conte.
But Dyche’s dramatic appearance earned him new plaudits on social media – and even comparisons to a famous horror movie scene.
One fan posted: “Something about this reminded me of Jack Nicholson from The Shining. Sean Dyche take a bow.”
Another said: “Sean Dyche is the hardest bloke in football. I’m surprised he’s not topless.”
And one accolade suggested that if the sturdy former centre-back can’t actually move mountains then he does at least have some super-human connection with nature
It read: “Sean Dyche doesn’t feel the snow. The snow feels Sean Dyche.”

Maybe the 50-year-old’s light attire was just him wishful thinking it was summer again and the first day of the season – as Burnley are third bottom with just one win from their 12 Premier League games.
And if they keep up their poor form they could soon be stuck in snow man’s land, sliding into deeper trouble.
For Spurs, meanwhile, rearranging the match could mean an avalanche of fixtures as they already have nine games scheduled for December.
