You can say what you like about the Irish League, but it is never dull.

With things hotting up at the top, it was Glentoran manager Eddie Patterson who lost his cool. Patterson was less than impressed with Colin Burns' performance in Cliftonville's 2-0 win over the Glens, and after the game he told the media exactly what he thought of the referee.

Across the city at Seaview, Linfield boss David Jeffrey was also in bad form. After his side beat Crusaders 3-2 he aired his concerns about the conduct of some of the Crusaders players.

In this week's edition of The Social Club our panel reflects on both rants and on the intriguing title race between the Blues and the Reds.

But that's not where the scandal ends on A Night At The Opera. On Saturday it was revealed that the IFA Appeals Board had quashed the IFA Disciplinary Committee's decision to fine Cliftonville and Linfield for sectarian singing at the County Antrim Shield semi-final. The panel take a long hard look at the IFA's procedures.

On a more light-hearted note, Keith is getting very excited. There is just two weeks to go and there are still five teams in with a chance of winning the Championship. Will it be Bangor, Carrick Rangers, Dundela, Knockbreda or Institute who takes the title? Your guess is as good as ours.

We end the show with a little help from McLean's Bookmakers. We preview Saturday's Premiership games, as Cliftonvile and Linfield continue their quest for glory.
