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 2015/2016 Season Starts Here!

Are you ready for some football, lads?! Well, I'm up at the crack of dawn to ring in the new season. For the first time in my memory, all of the domestic leagues are starting in earnest on the same day, which adds an extra element of excitement to the morning. We start in about an hour with two police enforced early, early kickoffs in the Championship, including my beloved kicking off at the sacred Elland Road against Burnley. That's followed quickly with United's opener against Spurs. At 10am, we get a look at all three newly promoted sides. Finally, the titleholders kick off at 12:30 at Swansea. Join me for all the action this morning.

Good morning, lads - the weird hunting show has ended and I'm now enjoying the Premiership preview show on NBC Sports Network.

Good morning. I've been up all night with a hooting child. May be in and out, but mostly out. Looking forward to the 10AM match on the USA Network.

Morning, Someone. All the best of luck to the Toffees this season.

I'm enjoying the Men in Blazers preview show with the Two Robbies now. Good to have the boys back.

So here's my thinking about the top sides going into the season.

Chelsea - have not improved; they'll be looking to retain their title using the same defensive Mourinho methods.

City - if anything, have lost a step, with the loss of Jamie Milner. I don't expect ether Sterling or Falcao to bed in.

Arsenal - big improvement, especially in the keeper department.

United - a big question mark; they look light up front, with only Rooney and Wilson to lead the line. How will the new boys start?

Spurs - another big question mark; can Harry Kane have another big season?

Liverpool - another big question mark; Rogers has spent big but that's no guarantee. Benteke has been ropy in the past.

Oooh - I'd love one of those pies that the Men in Blazers are tearing into right now. Lovely.

I'm really looking forward to the new looks Leeds United. We've shifted some of the dead wood (e.g., Steve Morison, Rudy Austin) and brought in some tasty new signings.

* Chris Wood - a big chunk up front who featured in Leicester's promotion run two seasons ago and was shunted aside when they brought in the Carlos Kickaballs in the Premiership season.

* Tom Adeyemi - Rudy Austin's young replacement.

* Sol Bamba - a big hit last season on loan from Palermo; he's back on a permanent move now.

Add to that some interesting new formations under new boss Uwe Rosler and we've got some fresh hope this morning. I'm hoping we'll be off to a winning start against tough opposition in Burnley. MOT!

The big news out of Blighty this morning is that LVG has decided to drop David De Gea ahead of this morning's match against Spurs. Sergio Romeo deputizes in goal.

As for the Footer, I hope Chelsea will show they have not improved. I don' t know about Citeh either.
Everyone is on the Arsenal bandwagon. They did get their new keeper but that is pretty much it. Last season, they were talking about axing Wenger... has everything changed that much?

Battle of Second Keepers at Old Trafford

Man Utd XI: Romero; Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Shaw; Carrick, Memphis, Schneiderlin; Mata, Rooney, Young.

Spurs XI: Vorm, Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies, Bentaleb Dier, Chadli, Eriksen, Dembele, Kane.

Oh dear - it looked like Taylor had hauled the big Burnley striker there. No call from the ref.

7:37 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Rooney up top
Rooney to score more

That's fine if he stays up there... he wants to be all over the park meaning there will be no one in the box

7:38 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I think I saw that Javier Hernandez is on the bench for United... is he going to be part of LVG's plans?

I still am not a big fan of LVG
Too much of a 'my philosophy man'


Teams in the tunnel

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

Oh - I thought that was in! Dallas with a rocket off the bar. How did that stay out.

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

I like the idea of Rooney playing up top but does he want to play there? He always drops so deep to collect the ball.

7:41 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

A lot are picking the Blues to win the League... the League hasn't been retained since United won their third in a row in 09
United have retained many times(94, 97,00, 01, 08 and 09) and only Chelsea did it in 06

Old Trafford sounds good as the teams walk out

Morning, MUR - happy new season to you! Thanks for making the effort to join us from the hotel.

7:44 AM

Just got your email for all the predictions
You said that a lot of the categories can be changed.

I think that one of them should be restricted.
Top scorer could be changed only if they have changed clubs. You can't change to a guy who scored 10 goals in three games!

Morning MUR

7:45 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I don't think Chelski have improved themselves this season. Falcao will be a flop IMHO. They're too light up front, with Diego Costa likely to be out for injuries. As you'll see from the document I've just sent out, I'm picking Arsenal for the title.

7:45 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I'm excited about the new season but as I said during the preseason, I am not in love with the modern game.
Possession is overrated

STRUTH.... just over the top by Eriksen

United's defense the same as last season

7:50 AM

I need Roon to score.Eriksen just over off a lobbed pass from Harry Kane.

7:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They sure were picked apart. Did anyone pick Eriksen?

7:51 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Here we go... going backwards.... I HATE IT

A chance for the ball to be crossed by the new fullback but the ball goes back into our own half

7:52 AM

Corner to Spurs...shaky clearance by Rooney.... I thought he was our striker!!!

Did you see that United have Club Bruges in the CL qualifier....these are never walkovers any more

7:58 AM

Oh - Burnley really getting close - we're under the cosh now.

Oh - just wide from Vossen. Bloody hell!

8:02 AM

I agree cuz we could have gotten Lazio or Monaco but it is not a foregone conclusion

8:02 AM

No sightings for Memphis?

United sitting back... I HATE IT!!!
It's taken 15 minutes for me to be totally frustrated with LVG

8:03 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Romero is not good with the ball at his feet. How does he expect to make it in the Prem. He does well to black from Walker.

8:03 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

That's another pet peeve I have... wear your last name on your shirt!

8:03 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - great save by Silvestri - he's keeping us in this one.

8:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I'm glad we avoided Monaco and Lazio.

8:04 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Has the ball gone over the byline of Spurs... let alone no shot

8:04 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Well, "Memphis" does have a certain je ne c'est quoi that "Depay" doesn't.

8:05 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Goal in Wales.... one of my promotion picks, Fulham, take the lead at Cardiff

8:05 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

United almost ripped apart there... just offside

8:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree. They should wear their last name.

8:06 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

United refuse to go forward... this is NOT the way a Manchester United way!!

GOAL!!! Against the run of play.... OWN GOAL BY WALKER

8:07 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Weak attempt by Dembele - he's lucky he was flagged offside.

8:07 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Not at all pleased with this performance so far; we're barely hanging on at home!

8:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Way Hay! Roon puts United in the lead on the counter off a pass from Yashley.

8:08 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

It was terrible by Rooney... wide open int he box and he controlled and took his sweet time and Walker finishes for him

Not good by Rooney... so much for our deadly striker

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

GOAL! United take the lead - it appears to be an own goal by Kyle Walker, right?

8:08 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Not a Rooney goal

United take the lead WITHOUT a shot on target!!

8:09 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

All square in Cardiff

8:09 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

No points in that category, then. I don't believe it - it's a second year in a row that we've had an own goal as the first goal of the season.

8:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bugger!Its a Walker OG. So much for picking Roon to score first.

8:09 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Shame that an OG doesn't get anyone any points

8:09 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'd take a Burnley own goal right about now, lads. I'm not complaining.

8:10 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Will this push United going forward... at least take a shot!


Again... piss poor by Rooney inside the six yard box

8:10 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

You lot were a toe poke away from two points. Ah well...

8:11 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Young gets the ball after a nice move... shoot or at least find a teammate..... crosses right to a white shirt

The modern player can't cross the bloody ball

8:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Vertonghen booked for a foul on Mata just outside the D.

8:13 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Could this be United first shot on goal

Free kick just outside the D
Vetonglen with a nasty foul on Mata.... first yellow of the season

Depay and Mata over the ball... no Rooney

Mata takes it instead of new boy... into the wall... Still no shot

8:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Memphis has a short blocked by Walker. That looked like something from Graceland.

8:14 AM

A few minutes away from half-time; we're lucky to still be in this one.

Half time in Yorkshire - 0-0. Not at all happy with that performance. We'll need much better in the second half to survive this one.

Wow - that one went right over my head - too early for that one, mate.

Next week, United visit Villa Park on Friday. Sotton host the Toffees in the early match but no late match

8:35 AM

Burnley get us going in the second half playing toward the Kop End. They were by far the better side in the first half. Hoping for much better from the Whites in this second half.

8:35 AM

Wow... Man City v Chelsea next Sunday

8:35 AM

Free kick chance for United... Young went for a one two... did he dive... he's got priors.... went down easily

Who takes it.... Roon is over it this time

Died booked for a foul on Yashley just outside the box. Harsh. It was a dive. Roon shoots well over

Alli, a new signing from the Fake Dons, is on for Died. He was in the side that defeated United 4-0.
