okay boss they insult me too


Not anymore. I'm the only one stupid enough to talk to you. :lol:

I genuinely don't think I've engaged with him even once in this guise, but I might be wrong.

Just a thought.....HRK and ShLong are dropping into the Championship again.....would any of you take HRK back?
Personally I would break the bank of Long....he's exactly what we need.......suspect its just a dream though and he will stay in the PL with another club......As for HRK......no thanks. Did OK but it wasn't enough for me.

I haven't quoted him for a good long while but I'm really tempted to if it's going to wind people up.

Wouldn't take either of them. Long is over the hill and has scored 7 goals in his last 73 games. HRK was with us for years and never held down a spot.

Agreed. Would much rather give Loader or Smith a try.

I think that is the first time you have ever said something coherent.

The usual misrepresentation

Even though the pundits like to give the impression of him being useless his stats aren't that bad

Appearances, not starts, minutes, goals, assists, mins/goal, mins/goal-assist

2014-15 (041) 2179 07 07 311 156
2015-16 (034) 2374 13 06 183 125
2016-17 (045) 2071 05 04 414 230
2017-18 (029) 1606 02 02 803 402

2014-18 (149) 8230 27 19 305 179

So that's a goal every 305 minutes in the Premiership
or a goal/assist every 179 minutes. Long will get 18-25
in a full Championship season

A players with his power, and averaging 7 goals a season last four seasons,
would be excellent in this league. The multiple for stepping down is usually 2.5 to 3

I see the Long fan club is back.

Your predictions aren't worth much snowy. I mean you said he was a ten a season man in the PL like it was a certainty and he's done it once, maybe twice. In how many seasons? Six?

No ta.

And Kanu can sod off an all.

So IN for the sequel of Ian and Snowball’s eBeef over Shane Long. It’s been a ‘Long’ wait. :D

Ftr I’d take Long back in a heart beat, will clearly score more at this level but he offers a lot more than just that, will stretch the defence and gives us pace up front, more so than Bod.

Agree wholeheartedly on HRK, terrible footballer.

He's a winger/striker and his shirt number is 4, WBA deserve to go down for that shit alone.
