Kights was a great player for us & scored some key goals. When he arrived it heralded a new era. Under Dyche we wouldn't be signing players to muddle along at our old level - we were going to look to sign players who could improve us and take us forward. It was a signing that lifted our ability ...

There was the trouble with Ings in January too. I heard he didn't want to play against Sunderland?
