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!

The Highs and Lows of Football

Join me this morning as we sort out a few more of the puzzle pieces in the Premiership season. First up is QPR's visit to Citeh. We all remember what happened last time around. This time, QPR need a win to survive. That's followed by Chelsea v. Liverpool. The Reds need a result in order to stay in contention for a Champions League spot. Should be an absorbing morning. Join me?

Morning, MUR - how was your Saturday?

8:32 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's Mother's Day and this is the perfect match for the occasion as QPR are captained by Joey Barton, who is a real mother

8:32 AM

Rob Green blocks a close range effort from Aguero after a horrible error from Fer.

8:33 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Citeh broke quickly and Silva claimed a handball in the QPR area - nothing doing from Mike Dean.

8:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Then Citeh win a corner.

8:33 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Fer can't be doing that if QPR are to survive today.

8:33 AM

A poor corner from Kolorov is cleared by Fer.

GOAL! Aguero dances through the QPR defense and scores!

1-0 Citeh!

8:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!! AGUERO GIVES CITEH AN EARLY LEAD.JUST FOUR MINUTES IN.

8:34 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

QPR are behind after only four minutes - one nail in the coffin. That was suicidal defending.

8:35 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Citeh romping through the QPR defense again.

8:36 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Clint Hill and Richard Dunne having a "discussion" on the pitch about that goal now.

8:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

QPR looking like a team that is going down. It was an Argie combo and the QPR defense combined by doing the Tango as Aguero got a pass from Zaba and went too easily past Richard Dunne then Matty Phillips and Steven Caulker looked like a bunch of clowns , trying to stop Aguero, who shot past the helpless Rob Green

8:37 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I agree - I can't see QPR surviving now.

8:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It is an unhappy return to the Etihad for Joey Barton, who publicly criticized his teammates and Richard Dunne, who has not Dunne well.

8:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The last time Joey Barton played here, he was sent off in disgraceful circumstances. Citeh defeated QPR in dramatic circumstances a few years ago to snatch the title from us. We can count on QPR

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

The Little Neviller is picking through the bones of this side to see who would want whom. I'd have Stephen Caulker. He didn't look so clever on that goal but I think he'd be a useful addition at the Elland.

8:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

PNE are two up vs Chesterfield in the second half and three up on aggg. They seem headed to Wembeley. Bob will not be pleased.

8:41 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Zaba was in there fortunately and wasted the chance to slide a pass along the six yard box.

8:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think he would be a good addition . His form has dipped since he was talked about as a future England international. He could solidify your back four and that may be enough to lead Leeds to the promised land and revive Caulker's career.

8:43 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Great tackle by Clint Hill on Milner.

8:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Superb last ditch tackle by Dunne on Milner for a corner. Well Dunne,.

8:43 AM

Sorry about thew result yestserday

8:45 AM

Auger just a fraction offside there as he was played in.

Oh - and Milner had a chance at the backpost.

8:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sorry about not answering your question. It was an extremeley busy day. The orientation ended at 2 then I tutored for two hours. When I came home the girls and I went grocery shopping and went for a Mother's Day gift. The I watched three hours worth of matches that I DVRed. How was your day yesterday

8:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Richard Dunne has a header deflected for a corner off a free kick from Dunne as Hart was caught out. Great combo by the ex Citeh players

8:48 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Austin rocketed a shot off the bar but he was ruled for a foul regardless. Better from QPR though. A glimmer of hope, perhaps.

8:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Charlie Austin had a shot crash off the bar , but was called for a foul on Kolorov. An easy decision for the ref.

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

Oh - now Austin heads home but again he's ruled offside. Shame - that would have been a nice goal.

8:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Charlie Austin has a goal disallowed for offside off a great cross from the left. It was a great header, but he was a few yards off.

8:50 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Austin will surely end up at another Premiership club next season - any predictions?

8:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I'm hoping QPR will win because that would help us finish third and not have to play an awkward qualifier in August

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

This match has a nice open feel to it now. There could be plenty of goals. Neither side seems to be feeling any real pressure.

8:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree. I'm guessing one of the clubs in the lower half of the table.

8:52 AM

You could still have that if Arsenal stumble on their run in, right?

Apparently, Milner has a wobbly tummy and needs a Tums.

8:58 AM

BLOODY HELL! TUMS needed for Milner. They didn't teach fitness at the LUFC Academy?

8:58 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Green nearly dropped one in his own net. Mike Dean bailed him out.

8:59 AM

Milner is called for a foul on Green, who was attempting to gather a deflected cross from Kolorov.

Richard Dunne upends Aguero and sets up a free kick chance.

9:01 AM

GOAL! Kolarov takes and scores past Rob Green in the left corner. The wall broke.

2-0!

9:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!! 2-0 CITEH AS KOLOROV SCORES WITH A GREAT CURLING FREE KICK. A POOR WALL AND KOLOROV TOOK ADVANTAGE AS HE PUT IT THROUGH A GAP IN THE WALL. BOBBY ZAMORA IS THE CULPABLE ONE.

QPR are being relegated in disgrace.

9:03 AM

Zamora with a volley chance - just side footed out of play.

9:03 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

PNE are smoking the opposition as they go three up and 4-0 on agg vs Chesterfield with about two minutes remaining. Ridsdale's evil minions will probably face Swindon in the L1 playoff final.

9:05 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Will Pellegrini keep his job if Citeh place second or third?

9:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Great save by Green to push a shot from Aguero around the post as he got behind the defense. Great pass from Silva.

9:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Some people say it has already been decided that Pelligrini will be sacked at the end of the season regardless of the final results. I'm thinking that

9:07 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Leroy Fer chipped one onto the bar and then Zamora nodded into Hart's arms. Should have scored.

9:08 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Interesting - who do you imagine coming in. Klippity Klopp?

9:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!!! how did Fer miss that ? He headed off the bar from a free kick and Bobby Zamora headed the rebound straight to Hart when he normally tucks those away. QPR cannot afford to miss those opportunities.

9:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

PNE have defeated Chesterfield 3-0 and 4-0 on agg. Sorry Bob. Hopefully, Evil Ridsdale's side will lose on the L1 playoff Final.

9:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Klopp has had a poor season. Soccernet claims that Pep is the favorite, but I'm sure other candidates will emerge.

9:11 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Austin in again but offside again. He's drifted offside too often today.

9:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Charlie Austin is offside yet again. he wasn't far ff with the effort, but was with his positioning.

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

Why would Pep leave Bayern for this lot?

9:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Yaya can't have his cake and eat it too! what a prod!

9:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A minute of stoppage time.

9:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The German media is claiming that Pep will be sacked at the end of this season for Bayern's failure to reach the CL Final.

9:16 AM

Citeh are two up at the half and QPR are 45 minutes away from the final nail being put in their coffin.

9:34 AM

Zaba heads out a cross from Matty Phillips for a corner as a long throw was headed on.

9:35 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!!! THE FINAL NAIL IN THE COFFIN AS CITEH GO THREE UP IN A COMEDY OF ERRORS AS THEY COUNTERED OFF THE CORNER FROM JOEY BARTON.

9:36 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'm back from cooking Yaya's brekkies to see Aguero slot home his 24th of the season. It's official - he'll be GB and QPR are going down, down, down.

9:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The corer from Barton was headed out to Silva and Yun took his eye off the ball as the pass from Silva came off his hell and found Aguero all alone fifty yards from goal. He ran that length and picked his spot past Rob Green

9:38 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

You're absolutely right, mate. Not only was the Little Neviller talking about it. So were the 606 crew from yesterday's pod who I was listening to in the kitchen.

9:38 AM

Junior Hoilett, the Canuck, is on for Bobby Zamora.

9:38 AM

Kolorov fouls Charlie Austin

I hope you are cooking better than QPR. Whatever they are fixing is a recipe for disaster!

Looks as if Citeh are going to win the GD competition among the CL qualifiers, unless Arsenal run riot over Swansea tomorrow.

9:39 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The QPR souffle has certain fallen in the oven.

9:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

QPR will be relieved that Citeh did not score on this counter off one of their set pieces.They just about get away with it.

9:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Lampard misses a sitter as the souffle is going rancid.

9:41 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Lamps nearly signs off with another goal for Citeh!

9:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fred says that if the Gunners win their game in hand vs the Black Cats then goal difference won't matter.

9:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I heard Yaya singing" Turn off the lights, the party's Over." Rather cheeky.

9:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Better from QPR as Hart saves a long range effort from Hoilett.

9:43 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - David Silva was in for the fourth but Rob Green redeemed himself with a good save down to his right.

9:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!! Green superbly turns a shot from, Silva around the post as he got too easily through the QPR defense.

9:47 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Zaba picks up a free kick on the edge of the box as Joey Barton to add to his collection of Etihad cards.

9:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Some more puns for the lucky Bob. Some more away day blues for QPR and the QPR soufflet is not well Dunne

9:48 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Kolarov over this one again - and pulls a good save out of Green again.

9:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Green superbly saves the free kick from Kolorov.

9:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Boni is on for Lampard, who gets a standing ovation.

9:49 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Lampard gets a good hand on his way off to join up with the Citeh-sponsired New York FC side in the MLS. He won't even have to change his shirt, as the NY side play in almost identical ones.

9:49 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Phillips upends Silva in the box and he might be off now.

9:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

PENALTY AS THIS IS BECOMING FARCICAL. A RIDICULOUS CHALLENGE BY MATTY PHILLIPS ON SILVA. HE COULD HAVE BEEN OFF.

9:50 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Aguero to take for his hat-trick.

Scores - #25.

4-0 Citeh - embarrassing for QPR now.

9:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!!! AGUERO HAS A HAT-TRICK AS HE SENDS GREEN THE WRONG WAY FROM THE SPOT AS QPR ARE GOING DOWN IN DISGRACE.

9:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I hear the Fat Lady singing opera in the West End.

9:51 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Aguero is on the hunt for his fourth goal now. Offside.

9:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

QPR are in danger of losing by a cricket score. Green pushes away a shot from SIlva, who was called offside.

9:52 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

You're right now - it's "A Little Night Music" time for QPR. They're done.

9:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bob will be interested to hear that Ruben Loftus-Cheek will be making his first Prem start for Chelsea, not QPR.

9:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Let them eat cake!

9:54 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Do I know Ruben Loftus-Cheek?

9:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A kick save by Green from Boni at the near post for a corner as the QPR back four were torn to shreds yet again

9:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!! MILNER PUITS CITEH FIVE UP FAR TOOEASILY.

9:56 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Citeh have 5 as LUFC Academy scores at the backpost.

9:56 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

QPR fans have seen enough today - they're off for the train home to West London.

9:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Where was the marking? Boni headed on a corner from Kolorv that was played back by Silva and Milner was unmarked, tapping in from three yards out.

9:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They might as well. It was a wasted trip for them . Sad that is.

9:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

He's from the Chelsea Academy , but I thought you would be interested in the hyphenated name because it's named after QPR's ground, yet he 's a Chelsea player.

9:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Another pun: If Citeh score one more then we can say game, set , and match.

10:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's party time and Yaya gets great applause as he comes on for Fernandinho.

10:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That QPR effort was too Fer off as has been their season, especially in away matches.

10:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

QPR are becoming a yoyo club.

10:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Yaya shoots straight at Green.

10:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Krancjar is on for Fer, but this match is too Fer gone for QPR.

10:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!! Yaya shoots wide with a shot from the outside of his boot.

10:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A poor corner from Matty Phillips is cleared by Zaba , the first man , and another counter. Nearly punished as Boni had a near post effort cannon off the post then Milner shot wide.

10:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The final roll of the dice from Pelligrini as Navas is on for Milner.The LUFC Academy Boy may have an upset tummy, but it's a nauseating performance from QPR.

10:09 AM

The Little Neviller blaming Harry for QPR's predicament and rightly so.

10:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A warm ovation for SWP as he comes on as a sub for QPR on his return to the Etihad.

10:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

SWP is immediately in the action as he has a long range effort easily saved by Hart.

10:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!!! GAME ,SET ,AND MATCH AS SILVA SCORES TO PUT CITEH SIX UP.

10:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Same story as QPR were torn to shreds again. It went down the Citeh left as Aguero found Boni, and his cheeky back heel made it to Silva , who rounded Green and slotted it in the back of the net.

10:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Are Citeh thirsty enough to go seven up? Boni was wanting a sip as his shot was blocked.

10:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mercifully for QPR, only two minutes of stoppage time.

10:16 AM

QPR are down to ten men as Caulker goes off injured and they have no subs remaining.

Citeh win a a late corner. Caulker is back on.

10:18 AM

Again, anything but a win for Liverpool means United will be guaranteed a top four finish. Of course, I wold really want a top three finish so there would be no play off game but I don't think we can do it

A draw would still have Pool mathematically able to catch United but would have to make up 14 goals in two games

I agree with you about JB and Grayson. It's a shame that we lost both of them, JB particularly.

I am in good shape with Sevilla but they'll have a tough final with Napoli. Even those six points may not be enough to stop Matt.

17 goals in the Premiership this season - better than any of the United strikers - and for a relegated side?

agreed

I'd take Benteke

He's a streaky one - I could see you getting frustrated with him. Falcao will be off, right?

He should be but there is talk of him staying

DiMaria has been even worse... I never rated him anyway
I said that during the World Cup

DiMaria was really good at Real, though. I think he might come good under the right management.

Still sucks

Awful in the WC

Stupid foul in the corner... of course Hazard falls like a house of cards

I still reckon that Rooney is your biggest problem - and probably England's too. His star power means that he picks himself but he doesn't do the job for you.

Diego's seen enough - he's off for a half-time pie.

Costa has been kicked out of the stands

The bloke probably wanted his seat back

Rooney has been pathetic!

Still hate the way United play

For DECADES United have been a team that attacks and goes out to win every game... not the last two years

United would never corner flag it... not the last two years

Ivanovic into the book now - he'd be a useful acquisition for you.

GOAL! Stevie G is captain fantastic for the Reds!

Bugger... Gerrard scores late on in the first half

NOT GOOD NEWS

United could still lose at home to Arsenal and away to Hull... who may have to win

Gerrard says to JT - "Anything you can do, I can do better."

Stupid foul by Ivanovic for the free kick... modern players are IDIOTS
