Kevin Long: New contract at Burnley

Long was loaned out to Portsmouth earlier in the season and has since played five times for the Clarets since his return to Turf Moor.

The Irishman, who signed from Cork City in January 2010, has agreed a deal which also includes the option of a further year at the end of the initial spell.

"I'm delighted to have signed. I have enjoyed my time here and particularly since I have managed to get into the team in recent weeks," he told the club's official website.

"I had a lot to learn when I came but I have benefitted from all the loan moves I have had and it's been great to have had the chance now to play for Burnley. It's what I wanted.

"I just plan to keep doing the best I can and I am looking forward to the future here now."

Long is yet to finish on the winning side for Sean Dyche's side but he is confident that will soon change.

"From a personal point of view I am delighted to be in the team and playing games, but we are not picking up results so it's disappointing," added the 22-year-old.

"But I think bar the Huddersfield game the other night (a 1-0 home defeat) we have played well and if we play like we did against Middlesbrough and Brighton we will start picking up points again."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
