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!

Capital One Cup Round Three Draw

The draw for the 3rd Round of the League Cup was made yesterday and it's thrown up some really interesting match-ups. Sadly, neither of our favorite Uniteds will be in the round, having been dumped out this week. Instead, the punters will be served up MK Dons v. Bradford (sigh). But what about Arsenal v. Southampton and the return of Calum Chambers to St. Mary's? That's just one of five all-Premiership fixtures. Here's the draw in full:

Chelsea v Bolton
Arsenal v Southampton
West Brom v Hull
Crystal Palace v Newcastle
Leyton Orient v Sheff Utd
Cardiff v Bournemouth
Sunderland v Stoke
Derby v Reading
Liverpool v Middlesbrough
MK Dons v Bradford
Man City v Sheff Wed
Burton v Brighton
Swansea v Everton
Shrewsbury v Norwich
Fulham v Doncaster
Tottenham v Nottm Forest
Ties to be played on September 23-24.

YIKES! Our Uniteds should have faced each other at OT. I agree that the Gunners vs the Saints should be a great cup tie as long as they don't put out the reserves. There is an interesting tie at the Etihad where Big Club hosts Not a Big Club (BOOM BOOM)!
