Michael Kightly: Could make his debut against local rivals Blackburn

The winger, who arrived at Turf Moor on deadline day, could make his debut in the first East Lancashire derby of the season against Blackburn on September 14.

Kightly played under Clarets boss Dyche while on loan at Watford from Wolves two seasons ago.

And he says the opportunity to work with the 42-year-old once again was too good to turn down.

"Playing under the gaffer from my time at Watford I know how he likes to work, I think his training is very good, I like the way he likes to play - the intensity that he likes to work at, along with Woany (Ian Woan) and Tony (Loughlin) the staff he had at Watford," said Kightly.

"I know what I'm getting from them, and his man-management more importantly is probably the best I've played under.

"I've played under a few managers who've had different styles. I like the way this manager works."

o make it more fair, we should remove the requirements to score goals and not to concede goals. Then we could just spin and dance and leap and twirl and we'd never have to grow up! We'd be the bestest evar!

his isn't directed at Van Gaal in particular, but, let's be honest, you don't have to be a tactical genius to beat Arsenal at the moment do you? I will say one thing...he put Van Persie on Monreal deliberately? Our Robin hardly had a touch did he? So did that really work? Hmmm....I'd stick to substituting Keepers (yes,yes, it was directed towards him in the end....)

We have plenty of fallout from Arsenal's latest display of outrageous incompetence, plus the question of why every team seems to be getting worse. Plus, another Garcia ghost goal...
