Football: NO DOUBTIN' THOMPSON; Wenger Would Wonder at Hat-Trick Hero Linfield 7 Coleraine 1


Byline: ALEX McGREEVY

IF it is entertainment Arsene Wenger craves, he can get it at Windsor Park for less than the price of a Stamford Bridge cheap seat.

With a short trip from London to Belfast and a five minute taxi journey to the home of international football in Northern Ireland, the Arsenal boss would only have had to wait one minute and nine seconds for a goal.

He would have lapped up Linfield's incisive attacks that ripped apart a Coleraine team still reeling from the news that the taxman hasn't given up the fight to shut them down.

And he would have liked the sight of Linfield's Peter Thompson, a blossoming talent who can only get better with a professional injection.

Wenger would drool on the fact that Linfield have now cooked up a massive 43 goals in just 13 competitive games this season - 10 of which have come from Thompson - and three of that tally in a record-breaking hat-track against Institute recently.

Thompson got another hat-trick yesterday. A first minute penalty and two second-half strikes. Now that's entertainment.

Linfield don't play to packed stadiums or perform on pay-per-view, and the combined Windsor Park budget would barely cover the wage of the Labour Party security guard.

But what they give their loyal support and demanding manager David Jeffery, is double the value on the pound. Not even Del Boy could match that.

The Blues could have scored a hatful in the first-half but for the heroics of Coleraine keeper Davy O'Hare.

But O'Hare was beaten four times in the seven opening minutes of the second-half as Coleraine - despite Kyle McVey scoring seconds after Oran Kearney drove Linfield's second past O'Hare - fell to pieces.

By the 73rd minute Linfield had scored six and Coleraine two, Ciaran Ferry's header beating the otherwise unemployed Alan Mannus in goal.

Davy Larmour bagged Linfield's third, Thompson the fourth, Paul McAreavey the fifth, Chris Kingsberry the sixth, and Thompson rounded off his second hat-trick of the season with the cheekiest of flicks over O'Hare after he made a fool of the Coleraine defence. …
