    Shane Long

    Clearly not needed at Southampton. And frustrated. Would love him here.

      Both Long and Rodriguez are likely to be off from Saints. The latter probably more talented, but the former more reliable / consistent / proven. Either or even both could do a job.

      How comes they are not needed? Both scored last weekend.. (or maybe long just missed a penalty)

      Would be very happy with Jay Rodriguez if he is properly over his injury issues, but not fussed about Shane Long at all. As far as I can see he has never been prolific and doesnt appear to be the instinctive finisher that we probably need.
      We'll see how smart you are when the canines come.

      Nothing official, but the feeling among the Saints locals is that for both their time at the club is up. Both would be available for a small fee and both would be open to a new club.

      Jay Rod needs a fresh start where he can get more games and isn't tarnished with the injury prone brush he's picked up there. Long at this stage in his career needs to start more games than he's been getting there recently as well. Saints expect to spend on their attack this summer (because it's the bit of their team that's crap) so chances for both would become further limited.

      Works hard but doesn't score enough goals, would rather stick with Baldock who can probably do similar and spend elsewhere - probably on fairly big wages too

      Jay Rodriguez would be a signing and a half, but he's off to Newcastle apparently.

      What is the obsession with Shane Long? In 15 seasons of Championship and Premier League football he has scored more than 10 league goals just once in a season in the Championship. His record as an out and out striker just does't stack up. He's no no.10 either. Not for me.

      And do you think we should pay to take the ''crap'' off their hands ?

      Long is a great athlete, bursts of speed and stamina, but his PL failing is considered to be his lack of tucking chances away.

      Goals will keep us up. Long doesn't deliver on that front.
