Kightly - Clarets can survive in Premier League

This Is Lancashire: Michael Kightly celebrates his winner Michael Kightly celebrates his winner

MICHAEL Kightly believes Burnley have enough Premier League experience in their squad to survive in the top flight.

Kightly is keeping tight-lipped on the progress of his expected permanent move to Turf Moor, as the Clarets look to finalise a deal following the winger’s successful season-long loan from Stoke City.

But the 28-year-old has already confirmed that he wants to move to Burnley full time and his thoughts are of being part of the Clarets squad in the Premier League next term.

Kightly has played for both Stoke and Wolves in the top tier and sees plenty of other players who have experience of playing in the Premier League.

Among them are Michael Duff, Jason Shackell, Dean Marney, David Jones, Sam Vokes, Ross Wallace and Junior Stanislas.

“People will make us favourites to be relegated but I think we can cause a few surprises,” Kightly said.

“I see the ingredients in the dressing room. We have quite a few players who have played a lot of games in the Premier League.

“We’ve got a good mix of youth and experience and a strong mentality.

“There are a few of us who have the experience of playing at the top grounds and the big clubs, so we know what to expect.

“But it works both ways. If it is your first time at Old Trafford you make sure you are at your best just because of the occasion.

“I can’t wait for the fixtures to come out now. That’s when you really start to realise that you are in the Premier League.

“We will all be looking at those to see when the games are.”

The fixtures for the new season will be released on June 18, with the opening day of the Premier League campaign on August 16.

Kightly looks at the likes of Crystal Palace, Hull City and Swansea City as inspiration for how traditionally smaller clubs can stay in the Premier League - with or without major investment.

“We believe we can give a good account of ourselves,” he said.

“I think the top six are in a league of their own but other than we feel we can perform against anyone, especially at home.

“We can see clubs who have gone up and survived, and there’s no reason why we can’t do the same.

“Those clubs have spent a lot of money and I don’t think we will spend silly cash, but if we can keep the squad together and the manager and maybe one or two additions then we will be okay.”

Burnley boss Sean Dyche has been regarded by some to be a contender for the League Managers Association’s manager of the year award, with the winner due to be announced at a ceremony in London tonight.

No manager from outside the top flight has won the award since Steve Coppell guided Reading to the Championship title with a record 106 points in 2006.

i do hope Dyche gets that award as its due recognition for his achievement. As i understand it, the contract for Kightly is a "dot the i" and "cross the t" matter.

Oh, yes, I'm glad to see that news concerning the Premiership club still falls beneath news concerning the Championship club in the website pecking order. Thank goodness for that; all remains unchanged in the world of the LT. And that Rovers retains its own direct link with GB's face on it too, and we don't have one. Its gives me faith in my lack of faith in human nature.

With some sensible additions I think he's correct in saying we'll make the step up without too much trouble. The side we have now is head and shoulders above anything else in the Championship and I would say is a match for several current Premier League teams and for this reason I see us being capable of holding our own and possibly surprising one or two of the big boys next season..

TurfMoorTom is filling his pants because he knows that Burnley are a well-run, well-supported, honest, decent, and proper football club who will earn the respect of many teams and pundits next year as we face some of the best footballing talent in Europe at a time when his own club continue to stumble from one PR disaster to the next and sink further and further into the quick sand of Financial Fair Play. This sad excuse for a human being represents most Blackburn Rovers supporters and their collective pain is nothing less than the funniest thing I've experienced in a long time.

As much as i'd like to agree with Kightly, i think we've had it. There is no way we will sign the quality of player required to survive and relegation will be a real concern. The luck donkey we rode all the way through the championship campaign has gone to the knackers yard. No team can be that lucky two seasons in a row. If Man U finish 7th in the league with their budget and supporter turnout then we belong back in the championship at best

Let's not forget that the magnificent Claret support enabled a late Premier League qualifying team to get pretty close to keeping us up last time - just 5 points and a very close game against Wigan held us back.
Add that to the huge difference in the quality of management, backroom staff, organisation and team ethic as well as star quality players all developed at Turf Moor we will have and you can see the early signs look so encouraging, especially when you look at the quality of anyone from 7th place down.
It's going to be a truly awesome season, not least because we are above B45t4rd5 and the natural balance is restored. When you have one club artificially wasting the money of a poor myopic benefactor and then they come down with a bump, up against a well-run club with no debt and a clear vision, the truth and reality will always be the result.
Let's hope the Venkys start shifting managers next season at the pace they shifted them this season gone once a few dodgy results kick in.
Jack must be rolling around in his grave, eh?

If you actually bought the LT Rob you would see that Burnley have been given just as many column inches as Rovers, if not more; it's just that not every article is posted on the website.

I suspect that they only publish the articles they expect to get most comments on, and thanks to our resident village idiot from Burnley we beat you hands down in that respect, he must be responsible for more column inches than the Bible.

Like it or not there will always be more interest in Rovers irrespective of what league they are in, it was the same in the 60's and 70's when you were last the better team.

Therefore they tend to get the headlines,

Hi Nick, "Turf Moor Tom" aka "Another Pounding 4 Burnley", "BRFC The Peoples' Champions"," Fake Villa Empty Cabinet" and many others is one and the same guy and he is a Rovers fan. His website will disabuse you of your view that he's a Claret, trust me.

I hadn't considered the column inches and its a very good point actually. With your Prem win in 1995, and the subsequent number of kids your bedrock support surged. From right down the M6 to Wigan and up to Lancaster, plus many defected PNE supporters, you have a genuine latent pool of 21,000 to 25,000. Whilst they don't necessarily rock up to Ewood at the moment , many will be "armchair active" and post on here. I regularly read the (sensible) stuff in your columns and you can have 100 respondents. We never get more than about 60, and that's exceptional.

I have to say that I can't buy the 60's and 70's as an online concept though........ Hard copy I can't honestly recall.

Add that to the huge difference in the quality of management, backroom staff, organisation and team ethic as well as star quality players all developed at Turf Moor we will have and you can see the early signs look so encouraging, especially when you look at the quality of anyone from 7th place down.
It's going to be a truly awesome season, not least because we are above B45t4rd5 and the natural balance is restored. When you have one club artificially wasting the money of a poor myopic benefactor and then they come down with a bump, up against a well-run club with no debt and a clear vision, the truth and reality will always be the result.
Let's hope the Venkys start shifting managers next season at the pace they shifted them this season gone once a few dodgy results kick in.
Jack must be rolling around in his grave, eh?
You've made my day with Mike. I'm going to have a brew now. Would you like one? How do you take it? Claret and Blue mug of course.
Oh so true you are indeed a claret and blue mug - I think there are about 8688 of them knocking about judging by last season average attendances.

If you actually bought the LT Rob you would see that Burnley have been given just as many column inches as Rovers, if not more; it's just that not every article is posted on the website.

I suspect that they only publish the articles they expect to get most comments on, and thanks to our resident village idiot from Burnley we beat you hands down in that respect, he must be responsible for more column inches than the Bible.

Like it or not there will always be more interest in Rovers irrespective of what league they are in, it was the same in the 60's and 70's when you were last the better team.

Therefore they tend to get the headlines,
Hi Nick, "Turf Moor Tom" aka "Another Pounding 4 Burnley", "BRFC The Peoples' Champions"," Fake Villa Empty Cabinet" and many others is one and the same guy and he is a Rovers fan. His website will disabuse you of your view that he's a Claret, trust me.

I hadn't considered the column inches and its a very good point actually. With your Prem win in 1995, and the subsequent number of kids your bedrock support surged. From right down the M6 to Wigan and up to Lancaster, plus many defected PNE supporters, you have a genuine latent pool of 21,000 to 25,000. Whilst they don't necessarily rock up to Ewood at the moment , many will be "armchair active" and post on here. I regularly read the (sensible) stuff in your columns and you can have 100 respondents. We never get more than about 60, and that's exceptional.

I have to say that I can't buy the 60's and 70's as an online concept though........ Hard copy I can't honestly recall.
Hi there Rob. I would question your estimation of Rovers pool of support. You may be right but it is a very amorphous thing, very difficult to pin down. If they had an average of 23/24,000 when in the Prem (which they claim to have lost "the missing 10,000" from) it has to be remembered that Ewood has a very generous away section that would be full quite a lot due to the visits of the Liverpools, United's etc. Add to this the above average attendances at said games (remember high individual attendances boost the "average" slightly out of proportion) due to "passing trade" and I often wonder what the average attendance is for home support. I'm guessing it can't be much more than 20k. which, coincidentally was about the same as us when we were in the Prem.
Given also I can remember pre-Walker days when 7k in the old second division was the norm and it does make you think.
Of course all this is of no importance, suffice to say that, no doubt, the home sections of the Turf will be full to busting next season.

What about the average of 4k we achieved when we were in division 4, look as hard as I can I don't think Rovers have ever had or been so low, so we beat them in that respect too.

If Man U finish 7th in the league with their budget and supporter turnout then we belong back in the championship at best
Man U didn’t have Sean Dyche did they? I am going to test you now. As you know you are about to be decimated by FFP. (a word from old Roman meaning killed). One possible way out would be for that loveable family the Venky’s to re-name and sponsor your ground (like the Sheik has done at Man City). Of course they won’t do it because they want out. But suppose they did what would you suggest they re-name the ground a? I have some very good ideas for that give us yours.

If you actually bought the LT Rob you would see that Burnley have been given just as many column inches as Rovers, if not more; it's just that not every article is posted on the website.

I suspect that they only publish the articles they expect to get most comments on, and thanks to our resident village idiot from Burnley we beat you hands down in that respect, he must be responsible for more column inches than the Bible.

Like it or not there will always be more interest in Rovers irrespective of what league they are in, it was the same in the 60's and 70's when you were last the better team.

Therefore they tend to get the headlines,
Sorry Nick you’re wrong again. Burney have traditionally had more support than Blackburn. It’s a simple as that.

Hi Nick, "Turf Moor Tom" aka "Another Pounding 4 Burnley", "BRFC The Peoples' Champions"," Fake Villa Empty Cabinet" and many others is one and the same guy and he is a Rovers fan. His website will disabuse you of your view that he's a Claret, trust me.

I hadn't considered the column inches and its a very good point actually. With your Prem win in 1995, and the subsequent number of kids your bedrock support surged. From right down the M6 to Wigan and up to Lancaster, plus many defected PNE supporters, you have a genuine latent pool of 21,000 to 25,000. Whilst they don't necessarily rock up to Ewood at the moment , many will be "armchair active" and post on here. I regularly read the (sensible) stuff in your columns and you can have 100 respondents. We never get more than about 60, and that's exceptional.

I have to say that I can't buy the 60's and 70's as an online concept though........ Hard copy I can't honestly recall.
LOL

Take it from me I was there in the 70's, possibly late 60's but my memory does fail me now.

For my sins and it's a long story that I won't bore you with I was a Man U fan before I grew up and started watching Rovers around 1970, I had two mates, one social, one work who were both Burnley fans and we thought nowt of trapping off to Turf Moor or Ewood together for several years, and yes you did have a cracking team at the time.

Not going to get into anymore discussions regarding trolls, we have a huge infestation of our own to deal with.

I am happy to have a bit of fun or a serious discussion with anyone but once they go off on their pathetic ill informed rants I just simply ignore them, or extract the urine by never replying directly to them.

I think it only fail that you're all informed of TTTom's medical condition. He has tormented you all for weeks now. Please be aware that he has other names he goes by. I can confirm that to be true, as his Psychiatrist. ,

His condition is Total Twa.t Syndrome. It manifests itself in the wish to pleasure oneself by inducing frustration and unhappiness in others. His real name is Richard Head and he comes from Shadsworth in Blackburn. We call him Dic.k here in the clinic.

What matters to him more than anything else is to be the centre of attention. He will do anything to make sure that your respond to what he writes. Sadly, he is a liar, a fantasist, a cheat and a general nare-do-well. His father, who is also his brother, his mother and his uncle, think he's a tur.d with legs attached.

He knows nothing about football. He knows nothing, period.

He's out and about at the moment with a picture of Jimmy Saville, a roll model and hero to him. He's got the picture pinned to his T-Shirt.

If you see him his single person-multiple roll paying relative has asked if you would chuck petrol over him and light a match. You'd be doing the whole of humanity a colossal service.

So there you go - proof I am indeed a Dingle!!

Why you continue to believe only one person might want to post with 'multiple identities' shows a certain softness in the head. Just maybe there are a number of people? Look at the writing styles - I only post as TMT and what I say has reasoning. Perhaps that's why you don't like it. Future turmoil beckons.
