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."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
