The East Anglian Derby Retturns!

It's Week 3 of the season and we're already getting some tasty fixtures coming along. I'm up early to watch the return of the East Anglian Derby between our old stomping grounds of Norwich and Ipswich. It all starts on BEin at 7:15am. That's followed shortly by Villa v. Newcastle on NBC Sports Network. Join me for all the business here on the LOB.

Wow - I have to admit that I was working so hard this week that I completely missed the controversy swirling around Malky Mackay, who was set to join Crystal Palace before it was revealed to the FA that he'd had the nasty habit of sending bigoted texts while at Cardiff.

7:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning Bob. I'm here to join you for the Derby between some regularly watched teams.

7:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I did not see that either. WOW! I guess that has ended Malky's brief career as a manager. What a loser!

7:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Definitely a match between teams who play at familiar grounds. We have been at Portman Road many a time.

7:13 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The teams are coming out at Portman Road:

Ipswich - Gerken, Chambers, Berra, Smith, Mings, Anderson, Huam, Skuse, Tabb, Murphy, McGoldrick

Norwich - Ruddy, Martin, Bennett, Turner, Whittaker, Tettey, Johnson, Lafferty, Hoolihan, Redmond, Grabban.

7:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Looking at that Canaries lineup, if Neil Adams can get this team promoted then he can't get anyone promoted.

7:14 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Morning, MUR - I hope you had a good week. I think I may have missed a phone call from you yesterday but I'm not sure as my phone has been acting up.

7:14 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'm shocked to see that only Bradley Johnson has survived from the Leeds contingent in this line-up. No Snoddy, no Johny Howson, no Becchio. Wow!

7:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They're of from Portman Road.

7:16 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

And we're away at our old stomping grounds at Portman Road. It's been quite some time since I last watched a live match from Ipswich.

7:17 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Laffterty catches Mings and Ipswich have an early opportunity to whip a cross in.

7:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I don't think I called yesterday. I can call this weekend. I did have a busy week. How about you?

7:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's still a strong Canaries lineup that should get promoted even if they are poorly managed.

7:18 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ryan Bennett is off injured. Was it off the foul from Daryl Murphy? It looks like former Citeh Player, Garrido, will come on in his place.

7:22 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Extremely busy week, mate. And more to come.

I missed the incident but Ryan Bennett has crocked himself and has been stretchered off while I was making a cuppa.

7:23 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I was too. ESP? I saw what seemed a minor stamp by Daryl Murphy, but the announcer said he twisted his ankle.

7:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I will be busy too. The students start school on Monday.

7:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Over by Daryl Murphy in the best move of the match.

7:26 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Happy Second Anniversary to BEIN.

7:27 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Indeed. It's making my cable bill firghteningly expensive but I do love it.

7:30 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I second that.

7:31 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

You mentioned that Norwich should have an easy return to the Premiership this season but I don't know. I picked them to go up but I'm not sure that this current side is of Premiership quality or even good enough to mount a challenge. We'll see.

7:31 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I saw that Leeds have a trip to Watford today. Your thoughts?

7:32 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Dean Gerken saves easily from Whittaker after a nice one two.

7:34 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Have you got a big number "2" in the bottom left of your screen? I wonder what that is?

7:35 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Watford have two wins so far, so I fear that they'll be too strong for us. I would love an away draw.

7:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The 2 represents BEIN's second anniversary

7:37 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Hyam seemed to lash out at Johnson there. Referee having words.

7:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A draw would be a great result. Sorry about the result on Tuesday.

7:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Gerken does well to save a long range effort from Lewis Grabban

7:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Berra heads out a cross from Tettey for a Canaries corner.

7:39 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Ah...of course. Thanks, mate. My brain isn't quite firing yet.

7:39 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! The Canaries strike first!

7:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

WOW! A STRIKER'S GOAL FROM LEWIS GRABBAN. WAS HE OFFSIDE? NO BERRA DOWN ON THE GROUND KEPT GRABBAN ONSIDE. THE CORNER WAS HEADED AWAY THEN HEADED ON BY TETTEY TO GRABBAN WHO HEADED IN FROM A YARD OUT.

7:40 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Louis Grabban with a nod on from the header back in from Tettey. Berra played him on. It's his fourth in four matches now. He's certainly ticking along after having moved from Bournemouth this summer.

7:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mick will be upset at the Tractor Boys conceding a really cheap goal. Christophe Berra was the villain as he conceded an unnecessary corner then kept Grabban onside while down on the ground.

7:42 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

If you're following the Premiership match on NBC, here's the team news:

Aston Villa: Guzan, Hutton, Vlaar, Senderos, Cissokho, Delph, Westwood, N’Zogbia, Richardson, Weimann, Agbonlahor.
Subs: Sanchez, Baker, Bacuna, Cole, Bent, Given, Grealish.

Newcastle United: Krul, Janmaat, Williamson, Coloccini, Dummett, Anita, Cabella, Colback, Sissoko, Gouffran, Riviere.
Subs: De Jong, Perez, Haidara, Elliot, Obertan, Steven Taylor, Abeid.

Referee: Mike Dean (Wirral)

7:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Cole Skuse harshly booked. There seemed nothing wrong with that challenge.

7:42 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Really sloppy defending, especially from a corner by a team that's pretty big.

7:43 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Nice to see the pictures of Melanie's confirmation on FB.

7:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed Bob. Lewis Grabban is a much needed signing for the Canaries .They finally have a striker that can score consistently and that may be enough to get them back up to the Prem.

7:44 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - just wide there by McGoldrick who is usually the danger man for Ipswich.

7:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Just wide by David MacGoldriock . Better from Ipswich

7:44 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Nice move there from Norwich through Grabban. They're in full flow.

7:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Tettey has a shot blocked then wide by Kyle Lafferty.

7:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They're off from Villa Park.

7:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ta, Bob. Melanie did really well last night.

7:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Christophe Berra having a tough time for Ipswich. A minute after the goal he was lucky not to concede a penalty after a shirt pull on Grabban in the box?

7:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Lafferty has a shot blocked off a pass from Redmond. It's all Canaries as the gulf in class is starting to show.

7:48 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Half an hour gone and Norwich are in a really good position here.

7:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They may not be Prem class, but can anyone in the Championship really claim that?

7:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A foul from behind by Lafferty on Jay Tabb and deservedly booked for that.

7:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Daryl Murphy shoots straight at Ruddy.

7:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

High and wide by McGoldrick.

7:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's starting to get a bit testy as Bradley Johnson is called for a foul and is upset that Mings was not called for a foul on Tettey, who is down.

7:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It doesn't look good as Tettey is hobbling off.

7:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The long free kick from Jay Tabb is easily cleared.

7:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ron Vlaar is down injured for Villa. That would be a huge loss for the Villains.

7:57 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I've been doing some research on the Mackay texts. Here's a sample of the ones he sent:

(On the relationship between Korean player Kim Bo-Kyung and his agent Carly Barnes) - "OI hope she's looking at your needs. I bet you'd love a bounce on her falsies."

(On agent Phil Smith) - "Go on, fat Phil. Nothing like a Jew to let money slip through his fingers."

(On Kim Bo Kung) "Fucking Chinkeys. Fuck it - there's enough dogs around Cardiff for us all to go around."

The FA should throw the book at him.



7:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It seems as if Vlaar will be okay.

7:58 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Definitely getting rather spicy out there.

7:58 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Almost half time and Ipswich have a corner.

7:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree. I thought that type of racism had been stamped out of the game. He should be banned for life and even face criminal charges.

7:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

There will be SEVEN minutes of stoppage time! I know there was a few stoppages.

8:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Lafferty heads well wide from the free kick by Nathan Redmond.

8:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Those seven minutes have just started.

8:01 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

McGoldrick goes for something special right at the end of the half. Doesn't come off.

8:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Halftime and the Canaries are deservedly one up at Portman Road.

8:08 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'm off to Villa Park during the break. 0-0 there.

8:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

it's still 0-0 about half an hour into the match at Villa Park.

8:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's hard to believe , but the East Anglian Derby has looked more like a Prem match then this snoozer at Villa Park.

8:23 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The second half is underway from Portman Road.

8:24 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Cole skuse has a shot deflected, but a foul is called. Daryl Murphy took too long top shoot as he was in a position with a great chance.

8:26 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's Callie 0 Celtic 0 at the half.

8:28 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Daryl Murphy heads just wide off a cross from Jay Tabb. It was a free header,.

8:29 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Better from the Tractor Boyz. Mick must have given them the hairdryer treatment at the half.

8:30 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Lewis Grabban just missed a sitter. He chipped over with just Dean Gerken to beat There was a huge gap and Garrido found Grabban.

8:32 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The other Bennett is on for Lafferty. It's 0-0 at the half at Villa Park.

8:32 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I ended up spending the rest of the half kipping on the magic couch. Not a lot of action.

8:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The attendance at Portman Road is just over 25,00. Tremendous for the East Anglian Derby.

8:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Welcome back mate. Each side had a good chance while you were on the couch.

8:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ruddy turns away a shot from McGoldrick at the near post for a corner that is easily cleared.

8:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Great save by Gerken from Grabban on the break.

8:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The chances in the last few minutes should have awakened Bob. It's been better this half.

8:39 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Grabban was put clear but his touch let him down there. Forced wide and the chance was gone.

8:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Tommy Smith clears off the line from Grabban after he rounded Grabban. His poor first touch prevented him from putting the Canaries two up. It all started with a tackle in midfield.

8:40 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Grabban could easily have had a hat-trick at this point.

8:40 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Norwich keep coming. Grabban feeds Johnson there put a side-footed effort.

8:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Congrats on being named Associate Professor. It is much deserved.

8:40 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Ipswich are in a real pickle now with Gerkin in goal.

Boom boom!

8:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Tractor Boyz seem to have run out of ideas.

8:42 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Thanks, mate - it was all part of a long-term 10-year plan.

8:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Nice one.
BOOM BOOM!

8:42 AM

Well done. A great plan has come to fruition. What is the goal in the next Ten Year Plan?

Cheers, mate.

8:44 AM

Nathan Redmond wins a corner off of Cole Skuse. A push is called off the corner.

8:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I'm sure you will accomplish those goals. You are definitely talented and an asset to the University and the community.

8:49 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Bru coming on for Hyam now - Ipswich need a spark. Henshall as well. And Connor Salmon who was on loan with us last season.

8:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Tractor Boyz will make a triple substitution. They are Bru for Hyam, Hensall for Jay Tabb ,and Connor Salmon for Paul Slamon.

8:51 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Thanks, mate - I get started in my role as Chair on Monday with the start of the semester. Things have been great so far.

8:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed Bob. They have run out of ideas.

8:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I guess Mick's plan is to wash the Salmon with some Bru!

8:52 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Indeed. He might be an Irn Bru.

8:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Great block by Tommy Smith from Russell Martin or else the Canaries would have gone two up.

8:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I was thinking Iron Bru. Still a great idea.

8:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bringing on Salmon shows that Mick is fishing for some ideas.

8:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The cross from Bru is headed out for a corner.

8:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A poor corner from Hensall is easily cleared.

8:55 AM

A shocker north of the border. Callie have taken the lead vs Celtic.

8:56 AM

Michael Turner heads out a cross from Henshaw for a corner.

8:57 AM

9:00 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Garrido got through and launched a sharp shot that Gerkin saved.

Less than ten minutes left.

9:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The free kick from Hensall is headed away by Whittaker then Mings fouls Tettey on the break and is booked.

9:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Gary O'Neil on for Wes Hoolihan.

9:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Now I have Cream's " Strange Bru" ringing in my head.

9:02 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

This result would have Norwich top of the pops - at least temporarily.

9:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I did pick them and they have been in top form since that opening day defeat to Wolves.

9:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Three minutes of stoppage time.

9:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Daryl Murphy heads a long free kick straight to Ruddy as time is running out for the blue half.

A minute remaining.

9:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Canaries grind out a 0-1 win at Portman Road and have bragging rights in East Anglia. A deserved win.

9:13 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That's it - Norwich hang on to grab three vital points. A good win but they should have put it to bed much earlier.

9:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A real upset north of the border as Callie have defeated Celtic 1-0.

I'm looking at the Leeds line-up and not liking what I'm seeing. It's last year's scrubs with the addition of a few Italians.

It's so heavy on the Italians that it seems like a Serie A match. Four for us and five for Watford!
