    Gets another start today. Long, McGoldrick, Connolly and one of Robinson/Obafemi/Idah/Parrott should be the strikers for Ireland. Maguire after that.

    Has hit the post as well. He's some man for pulling his game out of the gutter at contract renewal time.

    Long and Obafemi start up front together for Southampton today. Is this the first time that have ever happened with Irish strikers in top division?

    Not stupid at all Razor!

    Shane Long - Simon Cox
    Shane Long - Kevin Doyle
    Kevin Doyle - Andy Keogh
    Daryl Murphy - Anthony Stokes
    David Connolly - Anthony Stokes
    David Connolly - Daryl Murphy
    Daryl Murphy - Stephen Elliott
    Daryl Murphy - Roy O'Donovan
    Roy O'Donovan - Anthony Stokes
    Roy O'Donovan - David Connolly
    Robbie Keane - Gary Doherty
    Niall Quinn - Michael Reddy
    Niall Quinn - David Kelly

    They all played in a Premier league game together according to transfermarkt but I didn't delve whether they started or were on pitch at same time. Keanos buy Irish policy was similiar to my policy every time I played football manager.

    Should have scored! Would have made the game safe. Lost 3-2 from 2 up.

    Delighted to see him play and score though.

    Makes the better half of football365.com's weekly winners and losers article:
    Shane Long and Southampton
    Danny Ings has been the headline story of Southampton’s redemption this season, and it’s pretty clear why. Since the shambolic 9-0 home defeat to Leicester City, no player has scored more Premier League goals than Ings and no player with five or more goals has a better conversion rate over the same period.

    But Ings’ success is only part of a process, albeit the final, defining part. After that miserable November run left Southampton facing likely relegation, Ralph Hasenhuttl changed the system from a back three to a 4-4-2 that gave Ings more support. That also brought Shane Long back into the team.

    Long came on after 57 minutes of the fixture against Watford on November 30 when Southampton were 1-0 down; they won 2-1. He then started his second league fixture of the season, which Southampton also won. The Irishman has rarely scored goals regularly across his career, but has three and an assist in his last seven matches.
    More important than the goals is Long’s impact off the ball. He has always been a willing runner, stretching the game with sprints beyond the last defender and forever prepared to hassle opponents in possession. It is this high-intensity pressing that has transformed Southampton’s season.
    “He showed again that he can score for us and that he works hard for us,” said Hasenhuttl after the victory over Aston Villa that took Southampton to the verge of safety. “He is a guy who is going quick behind the last line and this is what you need against this opponent. This is why it’s so important to have a player like him. It’s so important to have players that are focusing on the game plan we have, and he did that in a fantastic way.”

    And that sums up Long, the selfless team player who will never be the one to take the headlines or adoration. Don’t be surprised if Hasenhuttl pushes for a new contract for a 33-year-old who doesn’t ever seem to lose his dependability. He’s in love.

    Really happy that Long has been able to fight his way back into the team. Hope he gets a nice final three year deal -- will probably be his last decent pay day.

    I have always been a fan of Shane Long but he is probably a championship player at this stage ; certainly next year , he ain’t getting any younger. Will Southampton go down this year ? ?

    Long can still do a job in the Premier League. Southampton are flying, there's no chance they go down, sat in 12th on 34 points and 6 points from Europe.

    Nice to hear the manager acknowledging what Shane Long does: he creates chances for others. His off the ball movement is brilliant. Ireland are better when he is on the pitch.
