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!

David Hockaday Walks the Plank






       Bob will be delighted to hear that David Hockaday has walked the plank after just six matches in charge. Neil Redfearn will take over his duties while Massimo Cellino looks for a successor. It was a  move that was never popular with LUFC fans and Cellino was going to sack him after the 4-1 loss to Watford on Saturday,  but had a change of heart. However, the dramatic 2-1 Capital One Cup loss to Bradford City was the straw that broke the camel's back.  What does that say about Cellino , who appointed Hockaday in June?

Well, that was expected at this point. Only two wins in six and a League Cup exit to rivals Bradford City and he had to know it was coming. I feel for the guy because he seemed like an okay sort of bloke, but he was far out of his depth.

The LUFC merry-go-round continues.

Have the bookies made predictions regarding possible successors? At this point, who in his right mind would want the job knowing that he will probably be sacked within a few months. I feel for Leeds fans, who deserve far better.

I sent Bob a text today but got no reply

I heard on Talksport that there is talk that Zola would be coming in… I am not sure about that except for the Italian link

I had a thought… what about Tony Pulis?

I sent Bob a text too. Zola and the Italian link makes sense. Pulis too unless he wants to stay in the Prem.How about Moyes at ER? I had been thinking about Cloughie too. Didn't Hockaday last longer than Jock Stein as well?
