    Come on, answer my questions. We all know you've seen them. Grow a pair and answer them.

    I actually thought Del's second goal was the better of the two. The first one he's just leathered it after a great set-up by Simeon, but the second one Del has controlled the ball perfectly on his thigh and shifted the ball into a position to shoot, before getting his head over the ball and placing his shot perfectly. The technique was spot on.

    Answer my questions, don't wimp out again.

    I noticed it mentioned that Benburb don't have to play Glencairn again this season, which is a fair point given their record against all the other teams. Looking at the fixtures, though, Benburb have to go away to all of the teams currently in 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th places. Out of the same current top 7, Glencairn only have Arthurlie and Kilsyth still to play away from home. Benburb haven't really had a sticky spell this season yet, and one heavy home defeat can't be regarded as a sticky spell, regardless of whatever psychological effect yesterday's result will have. Waiting quietly in the wings, of course, are Rossvale. Still only one defeat for them and, were they to win their three games in hand, they'd be only three points off the top. Significantly, though, their defeat was away to Benburb, while they are the only team to have beaten Glencairn so far. Cumbernauld are sitting quietly in 3rd, but looking over their shoulders at Arthurlie, Whitletts and Kilsyth who will all fancy their chances of getting in the top 3 as well. It's been a good first half of the season, and there are lots of twists and turns to come.

    Yesterday was a big performance from the whole team, but one player in particular was just about every Glencairn fan's Man of the Match. Del Esplin grabbed the game by the throat from early in the match, and he completely dominated the midfield. He almost completed a brilliant hat trick before half time, and deserved the right to actually do it when Simeon handed him the ball for the late penalty and the 6th goal. That was Del's 6th Man of the Match nomination of the season, an early favourite to win the Website Player of the Year.

    I suggested that could be the case a few weeks ago, but if that is the case then it's a seriously sad case of attention seeking.

    Do you actually think anybody on here takes you seriously ? Do you actually think that nobody on here remembers you challenging Grierson to a boxing match before he accepted your offer and you chickened out ? Do you actually think that anybody on here is in the slightest bit interested in your fixation and wants to read your constant jibes at Grierson ? Answers please. Serious ones. And don't wimp out and pretend you didn't see the questions by ignoring them, we all know you will read them.

    You mean he accepted your offer and you bottled it ? You really are a joke.

    Top of the league at the halfway stage. One bad afternoon.

    To be fair, though, he has a point. The "shocking" brigade are only too happy to jump on the slightest error on the pitch, even when we're winning 6-0 away to the league leaders. [emoji849]
