Dead Man Walking

It's been a difficult week for David Jeffrey, as Linfield's failure in the Irish Cup has cranked up the pressure on the experienced manager.

The Blues lost 2-1 to Ballymena United at Windsor Park with David Cushley scoring the winning goal. On this week's addition of The Social Club, Keith Bailie, Mark McIntosh and Conor McLaughlin discuss Jeffrey's future.

Elsewhere, we also reflect on Armagh City's impressive draw with Glentoran, while there were wins for Dungannon Swifts, Crusaders, Ballyclare Comrades and Queen's University as the Irish Cup reaches the Quarter Final stage.

In the Championship, we take a look at Carrick Rangers recent run of form and ask if they can hold onto their spot at the top of the table.

We also preview this Saturday's games with help from McLean Bookmakers, which include derbies at Solitude, Mourneview Park and Ballymena.

We round the show off by talking about Northern Ireland's trip to South American, and their flashy new away kit.

I comment as a Cliftoniville supporter. 99% of genuine Redsmen, and I believe decent football followers in this part of the world, would find it very hard indeed to say anything against David Jeffrey - on a personal or football level. He is a dyed-in-the-wool Blueman, but what's wrong with that? He has also led the Blues to riches commensurate with or beyond their resources and always fight's Linfield's corner. I believe that Mr Jeffrey's impending departure is a loss to the Irish League but is probably well timed from his own and the Blues' point of view. I would venture to suggest too that, old fox that is he, he has timed this news to spur Linfield on to make his final season a winning one, clearly something that I and thousands of Redsmen believe will be a bridge too far! Good luck David. You have been a credit to yourself and to Irish League football.
