It's been a tough week for us Football Writers...

Last Tuesday, legendary Sports Journalist Dr. Malcolm Brodie passed away at the age of 86.

Malcolm was father figure in our industry and he inspired every single football writer from Northern Ireland.

He also played a helping hand in launching the careers of each one of The Social Clubers, so we have much to be grateful for.

In First Class, Keith Bailie and Conor McLaughlin reminisce about Malcolm, along with Sunday World sport's journalist Stephen Looney.

Former podcaster Chris Holt also pays tribute to the great man, while Mark McIntosh and Laure James ask former Northern Ireland captain Aaron Hughes for his memories of the doyen.

Mark and Laure are currently on international duty in Malta, as Northern Ireland prepare for their friendly game in Valletta.

They talk to controversial defender Alex Bruce on his decision to play for Northern Ireland. The guys back in the studio debate the issue and make their predictions for Wednesday's fixture.

On the domestic front, we reflect on last week's Irn-Bru League Cup final and ask if the Premiership title is also heading to Solitude.

We also preview this week's Irish Cup games and the upcoming Setanta Cup.
