Good morning mate. Up earlier than the Roosters

7:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Two early scares for the Foxes. First , a fantastic break for the Gunners where Danny Simpson cleared for a corner then Alexis headed wide off his shoulder from the corner with a free header.

7:03 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Indeed, mate. I was up at 6pm to fetch some roses for my Valentine. Hope you'll have a good day with Elizabeth.

Cheers mate. Wishing you and Kate a very Happy Valentine's Day

7:04 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Drinkwater stamps his authority on the match with an early nibble on Alexis. Ticking off from referee Atkinson.

7:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Naughty by Danny Drinkwater and unnecessary by Alexis.He doesn't need to try and get someone sent off. Win the match on your own merit.

7:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

If he wants somebody sent off then don't pick someone from the MUFC Academy.

7:05 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

In a troubling development on the home front, Kate has become an ardent Leicester fan. She's a knee-jerk lover of the underdog, of course, but also loves the nickname "The Foxes," has a crush on Riyadh Mahrez and has taken to replacing the words "Leeds United" with "Leicester City" when I sing the opening line of "MOT."

Grounds for divorce?

7:06 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Drinkwater was with you lot early on?

7:07 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Giroud is sporting a new look for the big occasion. And he's not happy with Martin Atkinson there.

7:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Yes. He was as was Danny Simpson. Drinkwater never played a first team match for us despite being thirsty for action. We sure could use him and Simpson now.

7:09 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Thanks for the Valentine's wishes. Should be a nice day. We had a bit of a calamity last night. We had reservations at one of the nicer restaurants in this tiny burg. It was -1F when we went out and when we got to the restaurant, we found that they'd closed for the evening because of lack of heat in the place. We ended up at a nearby place, which was none to toasty either. Brrr!

7:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Not at all mate. I agree with Kate. Delighted for the Foxes.. I am Leicester City

7:10 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

No kidding. He'd be a nice replacement for Michael Carrick.

7:10 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

You're a patient man, MUR. I'll pass on your best to Kate.

7:11 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Arsenal are completely bossing this. Leicester haven’t had one foray forwards of any note in 10 minutes. But isn’t that when they’re most dangerous? One long ball out to Vardy and it could be a different picture.

7:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I went to pick up Elizabeth yesterday evening from Wal-Mart . It became breezy and had dropped to the upper 60s after being in the low 80s in the afternoon.and she was wrapped in a blanket. She will be glad to hear that we are not experiencing those conditions. Sorry about the lack of heat in the facilities. I wonder why they are so chincy with the electricity.I guess they think they have a captive audience.

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

A case in point, there. Kante had a chance to spring the front men, but his ball to Mahrez was wayward.

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

Oh - Okazaki got in behind the Arsenal backfour there but was flagged offside. Close call. Leicester creeping into this match.

7:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Absolutely , mate. As you stated. They pounced on a defensive error from the Gunners and thankfully for them, Okozaki was offside with just Cech to beat. I wouldn't read too much into them having to absorb pressure. They've done this all season.

7:15 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I reckon with some of the older buildings around here that it's difficult to heat them evenly. The place we ended up in had a nice fireplace going but because we didn't have reservations, we didn't get a table near it.

7:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

what a superb tackle by Kasper on Ramsey as he was clean through on the break then Cech saves a header from Vardy fifteen seconds later

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

Oh - big chance for Vardy. Lovely ball in there and Vardy got his head on it. Well saved by Cech.

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

This is a great match - end to end stuff, with Kasper playing sweeper keeper there.

7:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sorry to hear that. I hope everything goes well today. We're doing something at the house. We were going to do surf and turf, but wally World sold out of steak , so we're subbing with chuck roast

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

A simple collision between Nacho and Simpson and your youth player is down needing some treatment.

7:18 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's definitely been worth getting up early . It may be the match of the season . I wonder if Gooner is watching while having brekkies with your dad.

7:18 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

And Mahrez is off the pitch temporarily, changing his boots.

7:18 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That's the plan. I had a chat with Dad about the many debates that are going on right now last night. He's disgusted with the Republicans.

7:19 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Giroud is well offside , but he was still stopped by Kasper while attempting to ghost behind the Foxes defense. Kate was observing Mayherez tying his laces.

7:19 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree. I don't know why John Dickerson continuously let Trump interrupt , which is supposedly against debate rules. I did agree with a lot of what he said about Jeb. Kasich is the only half decent one until his religious closing remarks. Sigh...

7:21 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ox speedily got behind the Foxes defense, but Wes Morgan was there to cut out the pass.

7:21 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Great football from the Foxes there.

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

Dickerson was weak. We'll have to have a word with WHR, who is a family friend of his about his friend's performance as moderator last night.

7:23 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Giroud once again provides a neat knock-down but there are no on-rushing teammates and the chance is lost. Leicester start again....

7:23 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Kante tries a long one and gets it all wrong and we can catch our breaths for a moment.

7:24 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - great block from Wes Morgan there with Alexis pouncing.

7:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

hat a superb block from Wes organ for a corner

7:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Giroud heads well over from the corner from Alexis

7:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree. Kasich is the lesser of the evils and the only somewhat moderate GOP runner.

7:26 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. Dickerson will need to be relegated based on that performance.

7:28 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Nice tackle by Nacho on Okazaki after a nice pass from Mayherez after being triple teamed.

7:29 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Yes. Simpson played for us. I think he played about six to eight first team matches for us near the end of SAF's tenure.

7:30 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

He does a nice job with Face the Nation but he was bossed about by Trump last night.

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

Giroud has it in the net and Arsenal fans are excited but he's flagged off.

7:31 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Great in swinging cross from Ozil and Giroud heads in a goal, but he's offside. The replay shows he was

7:31 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

There was no need for that./ All he had to do was tell Trump to stop or he wouldn't be allowed to continue. That would have put an end to that nonsense. People like Trump stoop once they know they can't get away with something

7:32 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Some of the conservatives in our area are not any happier with the GOP candidates than you and I, telling me that they won't vote for Trump. They tell me that Cruz, Rubio , and Jeb are idiots. What does that tell you?

7:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A corner from Ozil is about five feet too high, but the Gunners retain possession.

7:35 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Coq Au Vin is booked for late tackle on Mayherez on the break. That's the one p[layers the Gunners didn't want booked this early on.

7:36 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Mahrez has a chance to swing one in now but his effort is far too shallow. Leicester can test Arsenal with set pieces, but they have to be of a better quality than that one.

7:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Gunners break after superb headed clearance by Kos. A cross is deflected for ac corner as Kasper just failed to prevent the ball staying in. Giroud heads wide and it took a nick because a corner is awarded. Again, Kapser just fails to prevent the corner.

7:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Gunners with a spell of pressure until a superb tackle by Kante

7:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Kante's curling cross turned out to vbe a shot and Cech alertly pushed it behind for a corner.

7:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A header from the corner from Albrighton is miss timed as was the header at the opposite end from a corner.

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

Two great footballing sides going at each other at full tilt - what more could we ask for early Sunday morning?

7:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

a great cross by Nacho , but the Ox slightly overcooked the pass and the ball went inches out of play before the cross was delivered.

7:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

absolutely.It's well worth getting up early. A superbly enthralling first half.

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

Oh my - Leicester City have a penalty!!!

7:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Foxes break as Wes Mrogan appeared to be climbing on Ozil and WOW!!!

PENALTY FOXES AS NACHO IS CALLED FOR TRIPPING VARDY . THAT LOOKED SOFT.

7:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL!!!! VARDY SCORES FROM THE SPOT, SENDING CECH THE WRONG WAY

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

Stone cold penalty there in my mind. I don't know what Andy Townsend is talking about. Vardy was at full tilt and Nacho brought him down.

Great pen from Vardy - just put his laces through it and drove it home.

0-1!

7:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Gooner must be curing up a storm as he felt the Captain Morgan should have been called for a piggy back ride then a penalty seconds later that he probably felt was very soft.

7:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Nacho was booked for that foul and a superb break lead by Kante

7:46 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Great time for the Foxes to score - really changes things going into the interval.

7:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A horrible foul by Ramsey on Okozaki and should have been booked.

7:47 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'm sure that the Gooner is cursing Atkinson.

7:47 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That's the half-time whistle then.

7:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Foxes are one up at the interval. A really exciting first half.

7:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Arsene is too. I expect cursing in the streets of Alex.

Sigh

8:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The second half is underway and WOW! A substitution by the Gunners as Chambers is on for Kos. He's only played two minutes of Prem footie this calendar year. The Foxes should test him

8:03 AM

Kosc off cuz of his yellow
Chambers on
2nd underway

Good morning UWS. I completely agree.

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

Ramsey has a shot dragged wide
Arsenal fans are going to blame the ref all day now

8:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Just wide by Ramsey after two last ditch blocks. Then some sarcastic cheers as the Gunners are awarded a free kick in midfield.

8:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They can, but they need to blame themselves for some key mistakes as has been the norm for them this time of the season

8:06 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Peep! Some bad news for Arsenal. Koscielny is injured and has been replaced by Chambers.

8:06 AM

Memory Lane stuff there
Leicester finish above Arsenal
Leeds United Champions
ManchesterUnited relegated

8:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Danny Simpson booked for obstruction on Alexis . It is upsetting that he's trying to get players booked. It's the second time this match he's done that

8:07 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Ref doesn't give a pen this time

8:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The time sure have changed. Are they changing again?

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

Mahrez hits the floor but doesn't get a pen. Nacho again the footballer involved.

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

Welcome, UWS - how are you this morning, mate? Happy Valentine's Day to you and the missus.

8:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A tough day for Nacho. Is the cheese rancid.

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

Oh - The Ox fired a cross shot that was neither a shot on target nor a cross to Ozil. What a waste.

Fuchs picks up a yellow for a nibble on Giroud.

8:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fuchs booked for afoul on Ozil despite Martin Atkinson playing the advantage.

8:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Giroud heads well over with a free header off a cross from the Nacho

Blogger manunitedrules said...

Happy Valentine's Day to you and Kathy

8:11 AM

Decent move there from the Arsenal. Nacho with a cross over, a bit behind Giroud who puts his header over.

8:11 AM

Danny Simpson is sent off for a second yellow, but why is Giroud trying to get him sent off. Really poor sportsmanship from the Gunners today.

8:12 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Two bookable offenses - he had to go. I don't know what he's arguing about. Get off!

8:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

This will be a tough test for the Foxes. Why is a supposed top ref being influenced by the crowd and players

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

Happy Valentine to both of you and yours

8:14 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Looks as if Ranieri is going to sacrifice his best player, Mahrez.

Now it's Kante in real trouble. Atkinson wants a word.

8:14 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'll pass that on, mate - thanks!

8:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Kante fouls Ozil. As Andy Townsend stated, that's more a booking than Simpson's foul and he is booked.

8:15 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Mahrez is strolling off and Coq au Vin isn't happy about it. This is getting a bit out of hand.

8:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mayherez is sacrificed for Wasilewski. Is he a former Leeds player?

8:15 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Bringing off Mayrez just plays into the Arses hands
They still need to attack

8:16 AM

Another attacking man off
This has to be Arsenal 's for the taking

8:18 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

damari Gray, the recent signing from Brum , is on for Okozaki while Theo is on for the Ox

8:18 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It could be , but Gray could be running at Nacho, who has a yellow and will have trouble matching him for pace.

8:19 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Corner chance for the Arsenal. Cleared out.

8:21 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I agree, UWS - if Arsenal can't take this advantage, they don't deserve to be champions.

8:22 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Real rearguard action now from the Foxes.

8:23 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Me too. This is the true test and if they can't win now then when can they?

8:24 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I'm chatting with the Gooner and Simon. They're none too happy with the officiating.

8:24 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Nacho has a pass cleared for a corner.

8:24 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Surely the ball had gone out from Nacho's touch, but he earns a corner in Atkinson's eyes, nonetheless.

8:25 AM

The corner from Ozil is cleared.

Leicester sat back too much
They became too negative after going down a man

Oh - nice break by the Foxes. Vardy was shut down by four defenders, played it back to Kante who flashed it wide.

8:35 AM

Kante shoots wide after Vardy picked him out while being quadruple teamed. Kante did well to pick him out on the break.

Great move there. Cross over from Nacho, nice knock back by Giroud and Welly just couldn't direct it on goal.
