Is Long The Next Jack Butland?

It's somewhat of a renaissance period for English goalkeeping; talents such as Joe Hart, Jack Butland, Fraser Forster and Tom Heaton all serve as proof of that. So who will be the next top-class stopper to drop from the well-oiled English production line?

Sheffield Utd's George Long is in with a shout. The 21-year-old has broken into the Blades' first team this season and I'd strongly recommend snapping him up on FM.


If you want to go down the Sweeper Keeper route, Long is very much capable of preventing counter-attacks and retaining possession. However, his lack of pace makes me think he's much better deployed as an out-and-out goalkeeper.

There's most certainly room for improvement but - with decent Stat Ratings in areas like Reflexes, Rushing Out and Jumping Reach - Long has the potential to develop into a very good player for most top-flight teams.

If you time your bid right, Long is avaliable for around £450K - £900K; meaning if things don't work out, you should be able to make your money back.

That's it from me for now, you can check out some of my other articles via these links - How To Be Like Ranieri / The Top 5 Transfer Tips: Guaranteed to Save You Money / Sure Up Your Midfield With This Free Transfer / This Cut-Price Chelsea Star Will Bag You Goals - and, until next time, enjoy playing FM 2016!
