QUITE SIMPLY THE BEST TEAM WON! A WORD FOR CRUSADER'S NEWEST PLAYER - LINFIELD MAY BE OUT OF THE RUNNING FOR THE LEAGUE (HIS WORDS, NOT MINE), BUT MOST CERTAINLY CRUSADERS ARE OUT OF THE SHIELD!

Maybe if the Crues players spent less time throwing their arms up like windmills and pushing and shoving opponents, then maybe they'd get something out of the game. Also, would you listen to the constant whinging of the Crusaders fans in the audio of this?
