For what seems like the umpteenth time this season, Glentoran today managed to needlessly throw away a good winning position today, in our first league match at the Brandywell in nearly 47 years. Three times hard work by Robbie McDaid got is into the lead but on at least two of those occasions, the sloppy defending that has become our trademark cost us the lead.

Glentoran and Crusaders were involved in a feisty encounter at the Oval this afternoon in a game which saw 4 goals, 3 red cards and 9 yellows cards....unless we missed one.
For Latvian referee, Mr Andris Treimanis (who is on this season's Champions League list) it was a baptism of fire and an experience he probably won't want to dewll on for too long.
There has been no need for a pitch inspection therefore todays game against Crusaders goes ahead as planned.
It’s back to the Oval tomorrow after a run of away games and another jam packed edition of the Glentoran Gazette. Our Italian Correspondent, Giampaolo Tassinari, takes us back to the 1979-80 season both here and in Italy, Henry Muldrew has a look at a much more recent event which could have far reaching consequences for the club, Thomas McCartney gives a Mid-Term Report on our Premiership rivals, John Grayden looks at the hot topic of referees and Brian McClelland pays tribute to one of the gentlemen of the game, Billy Neill. The Eddy Patrick interviews this week are with fellow midfielde
Saturday 1st December 2018, Kick Off 3.00pm
On Saturday we again take on League Champions Crusaders, this time in the Danske Bank Premiership.
The Crues are on a great run of form after a very poor start to the season, pretty much the opposite of how our season has progressed to date. They come here on the back of a last minute Rory Patterson penalty giving them a 3-2 home win over Institute last week and a 1-0 midweek home win against Larne in the County Antrim Shield.
