It is a disgrace that Glentoran were forced to..
travel to Cork to play Cork City in the Setanta Cup final.
It's beyond me why a neutral arena in Dublin - located between Belfast and Cork - wasn't chosen as the venue.
Football bosses must be aware of the growing disillusionment at the Glens and Linfield towards the cross-border tournament.
They will also know a Setanta Cup without the Big Two is nothing. It is dead, as deceased as that parrot in the old Monty Python sketch.
The weekend decision to ride roughshod over the Glens' pride and feelings has hammered another nail in the coffin lid of the competition.
