Mark McIntosh may have broken his ankle, but it won't stop him and his pals Keith Bailie and Conor McLaughlin from bringing you the latest news and views from the Irish League.
On Saturday, champions Cliftonville beat Linfield 3-0 at Solitude thanks to a brace from Joe Gormley. The result cost the Blues their spot at the top of the table and put the Reds right back in the title race.
Crusaders took full advantage of Linfield's defeat by beating Ards 4-1 at Clandeboye Park, which lifted Stephen Baxter's men to the top of the table. Elsewhere, Coleraine manager Oran Kearney's future is in doubt after the Bannsiders lost 2-1 to Warrenpoint Town at Stangmore Park.
B Division Bailie takes a trip to Championship Corner to preview this Saturday's Irish Cup Fourth Round, as 40 intermediate teams fight it out for a spot in the hat for next week's Fifth Round draw.
On the subject of cup competitions, Setanta have announced that their All-Ireland tournament will return in 2014, but both Conor and Mark are sceptical that the northern teams will accept their invitation to take part.
This week also saw the Irish FA release their "We're Not Brazil, We're Northern Ireland document." The panel run their eye over the governing body's glossy brochure.
Finally, we close the show by making our predictions for Saturday's Irish League games with a little help from our friends at McLean Bookmakers.
