    Agreed, I just meant in terms of he was (Raul) like a 'fixture & fitting' so to speak. Now if David Connolly was still pushing for a place it would be exactly the same.
    I thought you were off the drink Ronnie?

Spain have the pool of players that they can afford to drop players like Raul. We don't.
    Raul got dropped and Spain proceeded to win their first tournament in 50 years... i dont mind the comparison.

    Though obviously it wouldnt be as long a wait in our case, given that we won the Icelandic Triangular Tournament under JC in 1986.

    Ivar Ingimarsson believes Reading would have to be offered a ‘hell of a lot of money’ to sell Shane Long.

    Sounds like fighting talk from a man desperte for midnight tonight, still all good from our view point, even better if he goes to a Prem side who arent circling the plughole, an established team at that level. Would be great to see someone like Everton take a punt on him.

    Talk of Celtic putting in a bid according to the today fm this morning. No no and no. He is too good and showing far too much potential to move up there. Would prefer that he continues his progress with Reading until the summer at least and then reassess his options.

    That was the gist of the post that I had removed. I think Today FM's info came from message board chatter. Long is a player that is liked by the Celtic hierarchy but not considered essential.

    The Long to West Ham rumour has been around before and it is a possibility. It certainly would not surprise me if middle to lower premier league clubs were showing an interest with Shane's recent form.

    I can't see West Ham buying Long after just recently buying Demba Ba, loaning Robbie Keane, and still having Cole (at least for now), Obinna, Piquionne, and even Benni McCarthy (who, at the very least, still has to get paid and West Ham aren't exactly a model for good finances).

    EDIT: They also just signed 18 year old striker Paul McCallum from non-league Dulwich Hamlet.

    19.45 Sky Sports News has just shown footage of Avram Grant chatting outside the West Ham training ground - and the Hammers boss says the east Londoners could still add "maybe one" more player to the squad before the close of the transfer window. Carlton Cole, however, is staying put, he says, despite links to Newcastle

    This was probably it : ''West Ham have signed 17-year-old striker Paul McCallum from non-league Dulwich Hamlet for an undisclosed fee.''

    According to Twitter, Shane Long is at Upton Park, undergoing a medical at Newcastle United and a plane is currently on its way to Reading to fly him up to Glasgow to clinch the deal with Celtic. He's going to be wrecked by the end of the night...

    from the Cardiff - Reading live text feed: http://www.readingfc.co.uk/page/News...282360,00.html
    9 mins - Longy has needed some treatment. It looks like his hip is causing him a problem. He's trying to run it off now. All eyes are on our star striker and how he is running.

    17 mins - He's left it as long as possible but Brian MCDermott is forced to make a change. Long will come off and Noel Hunt enters the fray early.
