Get Long signed up!!!
 
We have offered 2+ year contracts to relatively unknown players, this lad Long looks like a natural finisher we have been crying out for, Ormerod-esque in my opinion, proved again by the finish yesterday!!

Sounds like a plan, but not seen him yet. Is there a one year option on his contract, anyone know?

Maybe Long commanded a wage at Fleetwood that random kids don't.

I'd never class Brett as a natural finisher. Far from it.

Before he broke his leg at Wycombe, if Brett was one on one with the keeper and I was going for a pie in the South paddock, I'd carry on going for a pie.

When he came back after that year's layoff he was a different player.

Long seems to fit in well, in another team it could be a different story.

For those who haven't seen him play Long is a proper footballer. Footballing skills, footballing nous and knows where the goal is. We have been crying out for someone of his ilk - if we don't sign anyone else we should sign him.

Only on a contract to the end of the season. No option. Who is responsible for that.

He can certainly finish and makes the sort of runs you expect from a striker, getting into good positions.

Would make sense to be negotiating a contract for at least next season with him now - not sure who would do that at the club present, though.

After coming through the Everton academy and representing England up to Under 21 level his career has been a bit stop start out on loan after not getting any game time at Burnley.
TM might just be the right man to get him going at this stage.
He's still only 23 and that was a proper strikers goal against Walsall.

pat, maybe Long is?

As for Brett he couldn't finish to start, but had everything else. We said then that once he starts hitting the net, he'd be snapped up.

Agree about Brett not being a great finisher, that's what stopped him being an established Premier league player.

On the other hand, when one on one I always fancied Murphy.

Anyone think that a short-term deal suits just fine for Long? He is playing, scoring and in the shop window for a better deal at the end of the season. Until the club has some stability, he must think there are far better options that could open up for him. Perhaps even a division higher.

possibly Archie. It's perhaps a deal that suits both parties at the moment.

I genuinely don't know how good he is having never seen him play. But we signed him from Fleetwood. He'd already come down the divisions so can he step back up, who knows?

Think most players think they can play at a higher level though even though that is often not the case.

It seems a while since....
We’ve had a quality striker that sits on the shoulder...
of the last defender....
and is a quality finisher.....
Dudley springs to mind....
He will be kissing the badge next.....

Archie, that's what I was saying. If we could have placed an option then I'm sure we would have- if he turns out gash, then release him.
