Out of the blue

It's been a bit of a slow news week in Irish League circles, but The Social Club panel have done their level best to find something to talk about.

Laure, Keith, Conor and (sort of) Mark convene to discuss David Jeffrey's imminent departure from the Linfield managerial job and speculate not only on who they think will get the post, but also endorse one candidate above all others.

Indeed, we hear from Mr Jeffrey himself and are joined by Crusaders boss Stephen Baxter, who is effusive in his praise for the man whose very job he has been linked with.

We also reflect on what this news will mean for Linfield's title challenge and look back on Cliftonville's 4-0 victory in Saturday's North Belfast Derby, Ballymena United's comeback to secure a point against Coleraine and ponder precisely why Glenavon are suddenly beating Portadown all the time.

Glentoran's recent wobble provides cause for alarm, Dungannon Swifts top-six aspirations are not just a fanciful notion, while Ards are suspiciously upbeat amid a relegation dogfight that they had once looked utterly dead and buried in.

Looking ahead, we preview this weekend's Danske Bank Premiership action with our pals at McLeans Bookmakers and dare to suggest that this season's Setanta Sports Cup might not provide too many highlights for those of an Irish League persuasion.
