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!

Europa League - Semi Final Day

The Europa League - it's the last vestige of footballing scoundrels. And that's true for me - it's Sevilla for the title or bust for me in the PPP. Unfortunately, I've got back to back to back meetings this afternoon, so I won't be able to watch my Spanish lads against Fiorentina. But I thought I'd post this thread so those of you who are available could chip in. Cheers!

Bob will not be pleased with the L1 playoff semis as PNE are one up at Chesterfield and the Evil Blades are one up vs Swindon

Sevilla's keeper didn't look too convincing as he punched away a curling free kick.

Jose Antonio Reyes, the Gunners reject, commits a stupid foul just outside the box.

Hand bags as the Sevilla keeper was fouled. It didn't look that bad , but the moist was made of it and the Sevilla keeper is down, making a meal of it.

The keeper is back up as if nothing happened

Two minutes of stoppage time as Sevilla , who have been on the back foot went on a great counter, but offside was called off a great through ball.

The halftime whistle blows as Sevilla players surround the ref as they wanted a penalty . The incident occurred as the ref blew the halftime whistle. There didn't seem much contact, but after looking at the replay, I've seen those given. Sevilla are one up at the half.

Napoli are being held 0-0 by Dnipro at the half.

Swindon have tied it up at Bramall Lane. That will please Bob , who is sitting through a tedious meeting.

YESSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!! ALEX VIDAL PUTS SEVILLA TWO UP.

4:15 PM

Vidal received a pass as he got behind the Fiorentina defense and beat the wrong footed keeper at the near post.

Napoli have taken the lead vs Dnipro.

GOAL !!!! YESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!
SEVILLA GO THREE UP.

Romero deflected an effort from Alex Vidal after there was a great run down the left. Sevilla surely are all but in the final

Sevilla should have gone four up, but for a missed sitter. Coke made a great run down the right and and a shot went wide when there was a wide open goal.

Bob now has a double reason to be happy as Swindon have taken a 1-2 lead at Bramall Lane deep in stoppage time and will take an advantage to the West Country for the second leg.

Fiorentina make a change as Ilicic is on for Super Mario, who was so invisible that I didn;t even know he was playing.

4:43 PM

The first leg of the L1 playoff semis are over and mixed news as both finish in away wins by one goal. Evil Preston have won 0-1 at Chesterfield while Swindon have won 1-2 at Bramall Lane.

4:45 PM

Fiorentina have a free kick from about 25 yards out and the keeper does well to push it away. We want a clean sheet.

4:47 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Dnipro have tied it up in Napoli. I wonder what type of opposition they would provide in the final.

4:48 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Five minutes of stoppage time.

4:53 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sevilla have defeated the Violas 3-0 and are surely 90 minutes away from the final.

4:59 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That's it for me.

CHEERS!
