    Irish Premiership 2018/19

    New season already under way and Linfield have come out sharply with 3 out of 3 so far. Coleraine again in contention just drawing on Saturday but as usual salvaging something from the game right at the end, bouncebackabiltyness still strong.

    Will be interesting to see how he gets on. Not famous enough to have his own Wikipedia page as yet, at least one I could find.

    Aye good luck to Kearney. Meanwhile his successor at Coleraine Rod McAree did win the League Cup last term so should be able to cope with the pressure

    He was with Dungannon Swifts. Similar to Kearney, likes to attack.
    Both him and Kearney starting off life at their new clubs with a draw.

    Oran Kearney is he Kenny Shields son in law by any chance as I saw a family shot after the league cup final and someone looked very similar to Oran Kearney on the far right?

    Yeah, he's married to Kenny's daughter. Rumours out there that Kenny is to replace him at Coleraine too.

    Glenavon the surprise packet with Crusaders struggling. Coleraine still hard to beat but a lot of draws. Linfield of course never far off the pace. My team Ards in the relegation dogfight (relegation scraps are always called dogfights !).

    Ballymena United now leading the way. Where did they come from? I have no recollection of them ever winning the league. Somehow though one always feels that Linfield will win it.

    David Jeffrey in charge there now; he knows how to win leagues anyway.

    Maybe the Euro money this year is helping too?

    Big game last weekend and Crusaders lost at home to Linfield. Ballymena hanging (just about) on their shirt tails. Oran Kearney not doing too well at Saint Mirren with only 3 wins in 18. Still not bottom of the SPL nonetheless.

    After last weeks Linfield loss and the comprehensive defeat of Coleraine it looked like Ballymena were back in the hunt but they've blown it now I think.
    9 points behind now but with a game in hand, they have Institute at home on Tuesday which should see it back at 6 points difference. Then it's 1 more game before the split and the last 5 games so 18 points to play for whilst 6 behind.
    They were all over Coleraine last week, helped of course by the McConaghie sending off, so a home defeat to Glentoran was a bit of a surprise.
