Banging them in for Bournemouth. Stephen Kenny will take note.

Long should start next game for Ireland. The best we have at the min. People might say Hogan or someone else but he still has pace and can hold it up well. Somewhere along the way he may score also. Id be quite happy to see him line up next game i have to say with Connolly and Robinson backing him up.

Just seen the goal on quest exactly the type of goal Long has never scored getting himself in the right positions is he getting better with age? 
Also still think he's premier league quality

4 goals away from the 100 league goal landmark. Has 14 games left to accomplish that with Bournemouth (potentially 17 if they finish in playoffs). Definitely achievable.

Well this is certainly a bit of good news and that in itself sums up why Kenny has one hell of a rebuilding job ahead 
It would damage this forums' reputation

Imagine how good Shane Long would be (have been) if he could stick the ball in the net.. Strong in the air, bags of pace, great physicality, works his socks off. 

In a parallel universe he's sitting on 40+ international goals and is a striker known around Europe. Sticking the ball in the back of the net is easier said than done. Cry

It is actually unbelievable that he has not joined the Irish Century Club for senior caps, and become second top goalscorer behind Robbie. At 29 he had it all set up for that.

Always maintained it there was actually wierd links to Liverpool at one stage (bluster probably) but he was a £12m signing a few years ago I suspect the equivalent of 25-30m nowadays. If he could have found 15 goals a season even with his other assets he would have signed for a top 6 club or even an Everton that challenged for the Top 4/6 on occasion a few years ago.

His contemporaries Jon Walters and Kevin Doyle managed 94 career league goals and 98 career league goals respectively.

Long did it in 150 odd less starts than Walters and 70 odd less starts than Doyle as well while spending the vast majority of his career in the PL.

Shane Long on the bench again, he's got a couple of goals I thought hed be good for a starting place, not sure what his performances were like though.

Bournemouth might see him as a good sub option.

Travers and kilkenny on the bench too. Completely pointless recalling Travers from loan and kilkenny needs a loan too

Long is in the twilight of his career so not a disastrous spot to be in. 

As for Travers just infuriating they called him back and Kilkenny likewise. The club has handled the development of both poorly.

disappointing Shane isn't starting. Saw highlights of his last two games and good to see him getting in situ to get tap ins in both. Also clearly still fast. Also still clearly a poor finisher, but seems best option we have at the moment
