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!

Brasil '14 - Day 18

Good morning, chaps. All of Brazil are waking up this morning, heaving a sigh of relief as their team was a mere paint job on the crossbar away from exiting this World Cup. It's always a sad day when the hosts do leave the tournament, so I'm happy that the Selecao survived that scare that Chile gave them, although they won't get by the plucky Colombians if they play like that. Today, it's the Dutch against the Mexicans and then two rubbish teams that no one really cares about. Join us today on the LOB for all the action.

Lots of transfer nonsense surrounding the World Cup this morning, most of it involving Liverpool wanting to buy players who have been shining in Brazil.

First up, Alexis Sanchez in a swap for Suarez? Why not?

They're also considering a bid from Real Madrid for Raheem Sterling. If the money's right, why not again?

Renowned legal and human rights expert, Diego Lugano, reckons Luis Suarez's ban infringes his human rights. "He has committed a crime, but this is barbarity. Not even a criminal would receive this penalty", he calmly and eruditely surmised.

More transfer talk: Manchester United have been linked with both Nigel de Jong and Dirk Kuyt. That'd be an interesting test of how much favour Louis van Gaal's unmoyesness has earned him.

BBC pundit Alan Hansen has encouraged Liverpool to hang on to Luis Suarez, citing his footballing ability. I think it's time once and for all for all football clubs to shed him. Liverpool will just continue to damage their brand by condoning his barbarism.

Word on the street in Fortaleza is that it's an absolute scorcher, minding many to predict an upset with the Mexicans theoretically more used to such trying conditions than the Dutch. There has been a lot of chatter about how the Dutch have avoided the heat so far in this tournament.
