Championship Preview: Everybody wants Shane Long!

Last week I was asked to answer some questions, and give my opinion on the upcoming season by the editor of a football blog named GEORGE WEAH'S COUSIN. A Southampton supporting blog. I'm not sure if the editor is actually a relative of the former World player of the Year though...

I was glad to oblige. I answered the questions as honestly as I could, although I will admit that yesterday's result and performance has changed my mind slightly.

The editor of the blog has just published my answers, and the answers of supporters from the other 22 Championship clubs. Most believe that West Ham and Leicester will fight it out at the summit and many can't wait to play Leeds (we're not famous anymore!) However, the most striking result is that Shane Long would be the the ideal signing for the majority of the participants, myself included.

Feel free to comment on the blog and disagree with myself and the other team's fans in all 3 parts at;

The Hull fan's view of Elland Road is classic!


  1. I think the reference to george weah's cousin is that the great one offered his cousin around to loads of clubs and saints were the one who took him on, only to find out he played more like boy george.....

  2. Actually I don't think George Weah offered him round at all. He just claimed to be George Weah's cousin so they signed him on a free and brought him on as a sub in a premiership game against, you guessed it, Leeds United. I think he lasted about 17 minutes before being hauled off. Ali Dia was his name and he was Dia by name Dire by nature.
