Cliftonville 1 Linfield 2

So Linfield march on to their third Irish Cup final in a row, where they will face Coleraine. Apparently we were comfortable, finally breaking our Reds hoodoo, 4000 at it, here's the thoughts of EBB:

Great first half performance, followed by a dogged second half display

We more than deserved to win on Saturday, against a side that simply couldn't cope with us

Subs were still a bit baffling, as Stewart should never have been taken off as he was causing with pace and direct running at the defence.

For Cliftonville supposedly having the best midfielder in the league *chuckles* he was made to look like the average player he is, by both Mulgrew and Gault. The two of them were totally dominant and also provided us with good options going forward. Jamie fully deserving the MOM award.

Tino had 1 save to make the whole game, when Scannell really should have scored

Thompson was awesome as well, mind you... The amount of times he won balls that he should have got nowhere near is incredible. Doing the work of two men, he gave the entire Cliftonville back four a nightmare of a day.

More of the same for the rest of the season please, Blues :)
