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!

Premiership Plus Predictions Game - Week 21 Update

Hiya, fellas. I'm a bit late on this one this week, as we started up our Spring 2017 semester on Tuesday. It was all change at the top of the Prem, with Spurs shooting into 3rd and Citeh dropping to 5th. Hull and Swansea also swapped places at the bottom with the Welsh club mired in relegation now. Zlatan and Alexis have taken advantage of Diego Costa's temper tantrum to catch him on 14 goals. If anything that has tightened our game, with five players within striking distance of the top and only five points separating Red Devil at the top and Blue Devil and MUR in joint seventh.

Here are the current standings:

1. Red Devil 1FCK - 32 points
- The Red Dragon - 32 pts
3. United We Stand - 31 pts
4. Swansong - 29 pts
5. The Saint - 28 pts
- What's Up Wheaton Simon - 28 pts
7. Blue Devil - 27 pts
- Man Utd Rules - 27 pts
9. Gooner71 - 25 pts
10. Someone Said - 24 pts
- Yellows - 24 pts
11. West Ham Rising 22 pts

The Big One!

The FA Cup 3rd Round comes to its climax this evening with the titanic clash between Cambridge United and my beloved Leeds at my old stomping grounds of the Abbey Stadium. Let's hope we can take the U's to school. I'll be around the office watching on Fox Soccer 2 Go. MOT!!

FA Cup Sunday

Morning, lads - if yesterday's action wasn't enough for you, we've got another day of Cup football on offer today. I'm going to have a lie-in through the first one, but I'll be around for the intriguing match-up of Liverpool v. Plymouth Argyle. That overlaps with Chelski v. Peterboro at 10am. And then we have the late one at 11am between Spurs and Villa. Join me for the Sunday action, won't you?

The Best Day of the Season!

The FA Cup may have been degraded over the years by any number of modern football trends, but the 3rd Round Saturday is still for my money the best day of the season. I'm here early doors to enjoy the return of Jaap Stam to Old Trafford as United host Reading at 7:30am. Then it's the flood of crazy fixtures from around the country at 10am. At 12:30, we've got Arsenal's tricky fixture at Preston North End. Can you smell the romance in the air? Join me with a cuppa, won't you?
