Donegal Celtic 2 Linfield 0

IPL Matchday 21, Celtic Park, 31/12/10

Attendance: 647


Match highlights (BBC)

An absolute disgrace. They ARE a pub team. A disgrace to the shirt. Jeffrey was correct to order early 1st January training. Time Linfield grew a set of balls and showed they want to win this league, instead of getting outfought by inferior teams who battle harder than us, see Crues away, Glens reserves CAS final, Reds away, and now this abomination.

Table: (It's as you were, as Glentoran lost to Portadown at home 1-0 on New Year's Day, again failing to capitalise on Linfield's defeat. What a poor league.)

Another big game away from home, another case of Linfield bottling it. Not good enough, time for our players to grow a set. Big three games coming up.

Glens scrape a 1-0 at DC to cut the lead to 2 points.

I was at this one. And...we got what we deserved from the game. Referee was a joke, three of theirs should have walked before half time, Garrett might have second half, I have no idea what that drop ball was about, but the Crues still deserved to win.

WE played right into Captain C*nto's hands all day, I can't remember our players running at him once, Thompson won his first header against him in injury time.

2nd half was a good game of football, apart from our team's inability to pass a ball. Our midfield went missing, Gault was playing centre forward for the last 20 minutes ffs. Every one of our substitutions made the team worse. Curran was woeful, he's just far too slow and ponderous. Carvill did nothing, ditto Munster. We lost all shape, everyone just piled forward for the pointless long ball, Garrett was forced to drop really deep but had no outlet, it was just a bad day at the office.

The Grove Tavern and Crues social club were empty too. Quite a few boys without tickets, but they were selling them at the gate, what is the point of these ridiculous H&S restrictions?

I'm a scud. We're lucky the Glens are playing so crap at the minute (2-0 loss at home to the Swifts) and that the rest of the league is so so poor.

N.B. Apparently we were terrible against a pub team. No minute's silence prior to the game has caused some discontent. It's as you were as the Glens won 2-1 at Coleraine.

*NB Linfield did not concede a league goal in September. But they also have the lowest goals scored in the entire league at this stage. Yet are 3rd. You can imagine how exciting watching Linfield is at the moment.
