Savile woe for Baggies new boy Long

shane Long was unveiled at West Brom yesterday after sealing his £7m switch to the Hawthorns this week, but the Ireland striker may be a little confused about the dress code at his new club if he was listening to his manager Roy Hodgson this week.

"If you want a Savile Row suit, you pay Savile Row prices," the former Liverpool boss tried to explain. "But you can still put a suit on your back from Tesco's. There are limits and it would be unfair to expect the Tesco man to look as good as the Savile Row man."

Long may be forgiven for thinking this was less than complimentary from his new boss, but with his new £25,000-a-week deal the Tipperary native could easily console himself with a shopping spree in Mayfair.
