    Started and finished V Man City on Saturday when Burnley took a point in a 1-1 while managing just 28% possession, so he must have done ok, was booked also.

    Goal for him today and played well.Positive for us that we’ve four decent premier league centre halves albeit that Rice will hopefully be deployed further forward.With our present lack of forwards we could be relying on headers from set pieces from our defenders.

    I see West Ham look pretty keen on nabbing Tarkowski. Would be great if that deal went through and opened up a starting spot for Long who hasn’t let Burnley down too often.

    He hasn’t had much of an opportunity to let Burnley down over the years has he?! But would be nice for him to get a run

    Had a tremendous performance in the game against Spurs, very neat against Son. Played a lot of long balls , but that was their tactic from the back four

    i watched that Mee last matched and cant comprehend how this irish guy is his understudy, Mee is crap as centerback, the other day backpass to Origi.... amateur stuff!!

    Burnley got a gift of 3 points from Liverpool this season, unbelievable! Kevin Long is twice the player Mee is

    Tarkowski is definitely better than Ben Mee, but Mee has been immense for most of the season. Admittedly hasn't been good over the past couple of matches, but rarely puts a foot wrong.

    If Long has indeed received an offer of a contract extension at Burnley, he should take it. Tarkowski is almost certainly gone in the summer. Kevin Long has had an amazingly interesting career when you look at how long he's been with Burnley but how few matches he's actually played. He must be a great guy to be around or something.

    I think Long is the equivalent of a solid back up goalie, one of those players who is happy to make a decent living as cover for others, wont complain when not picked and won't let the team down when called upon. I expect Burnley will sign a direct replacement for Tarkowski, it may even be Nathan Collins, and Long will continue in his backup role for another while.

    He's a good player to have as your third choice centre half, particularly for a bottom half side like Burnley. If he were at a side which rotated their team slightly more then he might have more appearances under his belt.

    Another way of looking at it for him is that there is such risk in moving on. Let's assume that he would join a top half Championship side. The competition down there and the odds of promotion are so slim for most sides that he may never get another run in the Premiership again. Plus he's 30.

    Hats off to Long and the career he has carved out. Really admire it.

    After John Egan's injury, good to see that Long got 90 minutes today against Fulham: https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/55456854

    Mee's concussion likely won't keep him out for too long but Long has always shown he's capable of stepping up when he's had little football.
