    last season it looked like he’d score every time Southampton attacked, and looked like the big teams missed out

    This season he can’t buy a goal or get in the team it seems

    He did alright when he first landed but loads of players do. It must be the pay rise, moving to a new country etc gives an adrenaline boost. Then they revert to type.

    Seems like a service striker, Southampton are struggling overall.

    Yeah, this. We've also seen it with the likes of Zaki too.

    Still can't believe Italy started him in the second leg of the play off against Sweden. He hardly touched the ball.

    Still amazing the Southampton coach thinks its a good idea to start Long over him.

    He hasn't started that many for Southampton. Austin was the regular starter until his injury.

    He wasn't even that good before his move to Southampton was he? He scored twice against us in the cup final, and a couple weeks running after that but apart from that he's been average everywhere.
