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!

Saturday Prem Footie

It's a typical Saturday Prem triple header as United kick off early at Turf Moor to face newly promoted Burnley. This is followed by Man Citeh vs Stoke and concludes with an intriguing encounter at Goodison Park as Everton hosts Chelsea. Also, if we can wish Elizabeth a Happy Birthday today.

United actually lost 1-0 at Turf Moor the last time the clubs met.
NO REPEATS UNITED!

Angel Di Maria makes his United debut today. He needs to maker an instant impact after some terrible United performances, especially the 4-0 thrashing at the Fake Dons.

7:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The teams are heading out of the tunnel

7:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They're off from Turf Moor

COME ON MAN UNITED!

7:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A very scenic view for spectators on a beautiful late summer day. I hope it's a beautiful, scenic United performance for once

A stupid foul by Phil Jones on Trippier just outside the United box.

7:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH! The free kick from former United trainee, David Jones is off the bar.

7:48 AM

7:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

BLOODY HELL!
A horrible back pass from Evans and De Gea had to rush out to block from Jutkiewicz.

7:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A United break led by Roon , who finds Di Maria, who starts his United career with a horrible pass.

7:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Why is Evans starting? Doesn't LVG remember that even the mugs of the Fake Dons exposed him?

7:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

WOW! Roon has been at United for a decade. Brilliant the first half of the decade and frustrating the second half,.

7:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

WAY HAY! Forest take the lead at Not a Big Club.

7:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Useless by Roon. There's the frustrating part. A long United possession then Roon gives it away . The Burnley break , but De Gea comes out to gather as a long ball for Danny Ings was too long.

7:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH! The first sign of excellence from Di Maria as he plays a superb long diagonal ball for RVP, who had his shot blocked by former United trainee, Tom Heaton.

8:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

BLOODY HELL! Johnny not on the Spot seems intent on giving Burnley a goal as he stumbled and De Gea had to come out and clear. Doesn't LVG remember MK?

8:03 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Now Roon stumbles as he received a p[ass from Di Maria and should have been able to shoot at goal./

8:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sorry. it was Mata, but it's so easy to blame Roon.

8:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Forest are one up at the half.

8:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Scott Arfield heads wide off a cross from Jutkiewicz after some suicidal defending from Valencia.

8:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

De Gea is forced to punch away a powerful shot from David Jones as Di Maria gifted him possession. A Burnley short corner is gifted to United.

8:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH! Scott Arfield went past Tyler Blackett then had a shot deflected for a corner. Then, head tennis off the corner from Matty Taylor as it was headed on by Ben Mee, but a foul was called on Scott Arfield.

8:19 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fletch booked for a foul on Dean Marney.

8:23 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's contagious as De Gea is forced to cl;ear a horrible back pass from Yashley.

8:24 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A nice break from United led by Roon and Di Maria, but a horrible cross from Mata , straight to Tom Heaton.

8:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

BLOODY HELL! Ben Mee gifts possession to Roon, who picks out RVP, who play a useless ball.

8:30 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

United win a late corner, their first of the match

8:31 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The corner from Yashley is straight to Tom Heaton.

8:31 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's 0-0 at the half. Simply not good enough from United.

8:31 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

BLOODY NORAH ! Neil Warnock returns as Palace manager. I'm pleased I picked them to be relegated.

8:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The second half is underway from scenic Turf Moor.

8:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

STOP SUCKING, UNITED!

8:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A COLLECTOR'S ITEM! A nice tackle by Evans that prevents a Burnley chance.

8:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A poor back header from Yashley, but he clears it away.

8:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Di Maria has a shot blocked for a corner off a pass from Roon. The corner is cleared.

8:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

9:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Matty Taylor shoots tamely at De Gea after Scott Arfield headed n the free kick.

9:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

BLEEDIN' HECK! Anderson is on after a horrible performance at the Fake Dons . He's on for Di Maria.

9:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I don't get that one.

9:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A horrible foul by Jutkiewicz on Fletych. Why wasn't he booked. It was worse than the one for which Tyler Blackett was booked.

9:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bob will be pleased to hear that Forest have won 0-1 at Hillsborough. UWS too as he picked Forest for promotion.

9:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

RVP is off after a really poor performance and is replaced by Wellie, who may be playing his last game for United.

9:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A stupid foul by Anderson on Trippier.

9:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

De Gea did well to tip over the free kick from Matty Taylor.

9:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It actually went just over and out for a goal kick.

9:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Dean Marney booked for a foul on Yashley.

9:18 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

9:19 AM

Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ashley Barnes on for Danny Ings.

9:20 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

9:22 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Valencia wins another United corner.

9:23 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Anderson takes it short to Mata and his cross is headed away. Burnley seem content to hold out for a 0-0 draw.

9:24 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Absolutely atrocious cross from Valencia.

9:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Wellie does well to block the clearance from Tom Heaton.

9:26 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Valencia wins a corner off of Ben Mee. Jan is on for Mata. A little late for this change.

9:28 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A poor corner from Anderson is kept in by Wellie and that should have been a penalty for United as Ashley Barnes used his hand to block an effort from Yashley. Stephen Reid on for Matty Taylor.

9:30 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Jason Shackell heads on a free kick from Trippier then United clear

9:32 AM

9:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Useless cross by wellie and that should do it.,

9:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

United are held 0-0 at Turf Moor as Chris Foy blows the final whistle. Simply good enough from United , who are still winless in competitive matches under the reign of King Louis. At least they did better than their last visit to Turf Moor.

9:37 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Morning, MUR! Thanks for keeping the home fires burning this morning. Sadly, I think you may be flying solo today.

Kate and I are heading to the Finger Lakes district today and, if all goes well, we'll be engaged when I check in with you tomorrow. Wish me luck, mate!

9:44 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

9:44 AM

9:48 AM

9:49 AM
