Lakenheath Old Boys

We are all former students at Lakenheath High School and other public schools in East Anglia. We were in school in the 70s and 80s and drank deeply from the well of British culture of those decades - the pints, the telly, and of course the footie!

FA Cup Quarterfinal Sunday

A very happy Sunday morning, everyone! If yesterday's schedule was complicated, today's is the mark of simplicity. We've got two FA Cup Quarterfinals on tap for today. We start at the DW Stadium, with Wigan taking on Southampton. This is likely to be the tie that produces the semi-finalist that everyone will hope to get out of the draw. Later on today, we've got Chelsea v. Leicester in a battle of the blues. So grab some brekkies and join me for all the Cup action this morning.

A Busy Day of Cup and League Action

Morning, chaps! It's a busy morning of FA Cup Quarterfinal and domestic league action and I couldn't be more excited about watching it. It all starts in a moment with the Swansea v. Spurs quarterfinal. The Premiership kicks off at the usual 3pm GMT time. I'll have my eye on the Yorkshire Derby clash between Leeds and Not a Big Club. And we wrap things up at the end of the day with Liverpool v. Watford in the Premiership. Much, much later is a rare Saturday evening FA Cup tie for United.

Premiership Plus Predictions Game - Week 30 Update

Happy Thursday, lads! I've been busily working on a number of projects during the Fredonia Spring Break this week, so I've finally had a chance this morning to update the PPP game. Not a lot to report, actually. The standings are much as they were last week, due to Citeh's continual dominance at the top and Palace, Stoke and WBA's continual struggles at the bottom. Chelski crashed out of the Champions League at the Nou Camp last night, which means that Yellows' interest in the CL has ended for this season.

Here are the current standings:

1. MOT the Hoople - 45 points
2. Swansong - 37 pts
3. What's Up Wheaton Simon - 34 pts
4. Man Utd Rules - 30 pts
5. Gooner71 - 29 pts
6. The Saint - 25 pts
-  Someone Said - 25 pts
8. Red Devil 1FCK - 21 pts
9. Red Dragon - 20 pts
10. Yellows - 18 pts
11. United We Stand - 17 pts
-  West Ham Rising - 17 pts
13. Blue Devil - 16 pts
