Shane Long : Southampton News
“After a slow start Southampton soon found their stride. Shane Long and Nathan Redmond menaced at the Birmingham Road End of the ground. Seconds later it was Phillips at the opposite end. It was remarkably open.”
 Daily Telegraph 23 days ago
“The Baggies started the game on top, and enjoyed plenty of possession in Southampton's half with James Morrison stinging Fraser Forster's palms from range and Nacer Chadli looking threatening. But it was the visitors who took the lead.”
 Express & Star 23 days ago
“Nathan Redmond, Shane Long and Dusan Tadic were all involved as Tadic teed Long then headed wide at the end of the half and Southampton restarted with greater endeavour with Long, Redmond and Tadic threatening but often failing in the final third.”
 The Guardian 23 days ago
“Dusan Tadic’s cross a little too fierce for ex-Albion man Shane Long lurking in the box The goal was a sickener for the Baggies and a tonic for Southampton.”
 Birmingham Mail 23 days ago
“For all Southampton’s pretty play, they are not against the occasional long ball when operating with a centre-forward brought up on Gaelic football.”
 Daily Mail 23 days ago
“West Brom vlogger Lizzie Hayward is hoping it’ll be third time lucky for Albion this weekend when they host Southampton.”
 Birmingham Mail 24 days ago
“Claude Puel singled out Shane Long for praise despite him missing some good chances in Southampton's 3-1 win against Crystal Palace.”
 Eat Sleep Sport 25 days ago
“The ball appeared to strike Jeffrey Schlupp's hand as Dusan Tadic tried to take it past him and Shane Long went down under a clumsy challenge from Luka Milivojevic.”
 BBC 25 days ago
“Shane Long's below-par finishing did not prove costly for Southampton as Claude Puel's men scored two late goals to claim a 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace, piling the pressure back on Sam Allardyce's relegation-threatened side.”
 SBS The World Game 26 days ago
“Southampton: Forster; Cédric nearly taking the lead in the first minute, when Shane Long fired just wide after being played through intelligently by Redmond.”
