Franchise FCLinden Jones' TashRoyalwaster Admittedly when we still had Lita, Long was still very average
Yup. Remember when we had the luxury of persevering with players til they came good.
Long's transformation with us is why I'm a big believer in confidence and hunger over raw ability. His touch was atrocious when he first broke through, then as the team got better, so did he.
If we're still short at the end of the windows, I'd take Long on a season long loan (assuming he's fit)), and make him our central striker alongside Yakou and Mo
Maybe my advancing years are dulling my memory but didn’t Long break through during the 106 campaign. And then the team got better ?
Yes mainly off the bench that season..
When he first came here his second touch wasa tackle but he certainly proved me wrong..
Remember that header against Derby in the 106 season great run and bullet header and that was the point I thought there is a player there...
