Big Two 'villains' McBride and Morgan admit that moving across the city wasn't much fun thanks to intense rivalry between clubs

"I lost friends when I moved from Glentoran to Linfield, but I don't regret it," reflects Justin McBride on his cross-city switch back in July 2001.

At the time, the move caused shockwaves, particularly as McBride was a fans' favourite and a lifelong Glenman born and bred in east Belfast.

These days, such moves are much more common, as evidenced by Linfield's double swoop for Conor Pepper and Navid Nasseri yesterday.
