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!

Saturday, Saturday, Saturday....is Footie Day!

A good Saturday morning to all of you in LOB land. We've got a smashing day of footer ahead of us. I've been looking forward all week to the early one - second place Citeh against league leaders Leicester at the Etihad. That's followed sharply at 10am by the full slate of Premiership and Championship matches including Leeds v. Forest. Southampton v. West Ham round us off at 12:30. Join me for the usual LOB banter this morning.

The big news out of Blightly this Saturday is that United and Jose Mourinho have opened up talks. Oh dear....

Good morning mate. I just heard the news. Not pleased whatsoever!

7:34 AM

Leicester continue to be fortunate with their players' fitness. The spine of the side - Kasper, Morgan, Drinkwater, Mahrez and Vardy - are all fit and ready to go.

7:37 AM

Morning, MUR - how are you, mate? Had a good week?

7:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I'm doing okay. It was a very chaotic week with the usual nonsense , but at a higher frequency than normal. How about you?

7:41 AM

Much the same, mate. The first few weeks of the semester have been bloody frantic.

It's been that way at work, but at home too, so some days are exhausting. It's the time of the year plus the teenage issues.

7:44 AM

I'm hoping for a tasty Citeh win this morning, with a hat-trick from my GBB boys. I need Leicester and Vardy off the top of the charts.

7:44 AM

They're off from a rainy Etihad!

And we're away at the Etihad - I'm hoping for goals, goals, goals.

Good start for the Foxes

Mahrez wins a useful free kick out wide left after he's fouled by Kolarov.

7:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Hart punches away a cross from Albrighton that should have been caught then Kolorov fouls Mayherez about a foot outside the box.

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

Morning, UWS - great to have you on board.

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

GOAL! Goodness sakes, Leicester are in front! Robert Huth has bundled it over the line from the free kick.

7:48 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Yes!!!!
Leicester take the lead!!!
What an amazing team

7:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!! ROBERT HUTH PUTS THE FOXES ION THE LEAD FROM SOMETHING OFF THE TRAINING GROUND . THE FREE KICK WAS CURLED IN AND HUTH GOT FREE AND VOLLEYED IN , UNMARKED IN THE SIX YARD BOX

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

How on earth do you allow Huth to get free at a set piece - he's such a threat! Too easy for the Foxes.

7:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning UWS. Great to have you on board. How have you been?

7:49 AM

Konte tackles Yaya and runs half the length of the pitch until he slips . tThen the wet Drinkwater fouls Aguero

7:50 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Leicester are taking it to Citeh again until Kante falls. They really are an amazing side that are enlivening this Premiership season.

7:50 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

If I had any hope of United winning the league , that goal would be bad news

7:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

There are several Foxes players from the MUFC Academy who would love to win here today

7:51 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - nice slide rule pass from Silva to Sterling. Just too long. Collected by Kasper.

7:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Kapser does well to rush out and slide to gather the ball off a pass from Silva intended for Sterling

7:52 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Bloody hell - Aguero is hobbling now as Drinkwater knobbled him.

7:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A win for the Foxes at the Em in the wee hours next Sunday will help United up to fourth as will a United win today

7:52 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Vardy was in there from an Albrighton pass. Hart did well to snuff it out and then Otamendi prevented Okazaki from getting the rebound.

7:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OPH!!!! A long ball for Vardy and Hart superbly blocks then Otamendi tackles Okazaki as he was about to shoot the rebound. CIteh were caught out there

7:53 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Any thoughts about the news of Jose Mourinho being in talks with United, UWS? MUR is not so keen - what say you?

7:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That tackle by Drinkwater on Aguero was from the MUFC Academy. The pain will be double.

7:55 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

End to end stuff now. Drinkwater finds Mahrez. Hart out there sharply again.

7:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Drinkwater wins a corner off of Hart as he got behind the Citeh defense Huth volleys again off the corner, but didn't get much on it and it was easily cleared.

7:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!!! Jamie Vardy couldn't quite control the ball as he was quadruple teamed.

7:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Kolorov wins a corner off of Simpson as Citeh had a long possession.

7:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The outwinging corner from Kolorov was too well done. Then Silva has a shot deflect inc hes wide off of Wes Morgan

8:00 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Silva twists and turns in the box and then just trickles one wide of the mark.

8:00 AM

Just had to go to the loo. Matt texted me that Lcity should have gone two up

8:00 AM

Welcome back. The Foxes should be 3-2 ahead.

8:01 AM

Jose wants to get rid of Mata and Hair Bear. I'm okay with shipping off Hair Bear, but not Mata. He only wants to get rid of him because he can't get along with him.

8:02 AM

To answer your Jose question
I've never liked him and never wanted him at OT BUT ANYONE IS BETTER THAN LVG

8:02 AM

Matt's a prankster. Does he know about The Curse of Nocito?

8:02 AM

Naughty by Yaya on Danny Simpson

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

I think it's a shame that the tradition of having British managers at OT has been broken and that from now on in you're likely to get one hired gun European after another.

8:03 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Silva was tackled too easily by Drinkwater. He learned that at the MUFC Academy.

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

Leicester are outplaying Citeh on their own patch!

The Citeh faithful are not happy about it.

8:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I would like one, but there aren't any out there good enough to handle the job. Sad, but it's the reality of the situation.

8:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The fans should be unhappy that some of those players outplaying Citeh are United rejects.

8:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Aguero needs to shut it and not whine about any little bit of contact. If he doesn't like it then go back to La Liga.

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

I agree about British managers at OT

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

Oh - Okazaki just inches away from The Foxes second goal. Whew!

8:07 AM

OH!!!! OKazaki was inches away from putting the Foxes two up as Vardy sped past Otamendi and played in his striking partner.

Should be a pen
Lity scored around this spot. Mity can't

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

Kolarov whips one in and Huth nods it over.

8:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Zaba is fouled inches outside the box . It was on the line , which means it should be a penalty. It's too hard for the ref to tell. The free kick from Kolorov is headed out by Huth for a corner

8:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Head tennis off the corner then Aguero is tackled and the Foxes clear.

8:10 AM

Klopp won't be at the match today
He's in the hospital with appendix
Some fan on Talksport asks if he should be at the match with pain like he asked sturridge to

8:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Exactly. Once there is then I'm all for it. Perhaps Eddie Howe in a few years if he can continue being successful with the Cherries. He's someone for perhaps five years from now.

8:13 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Nice use of the word "pedantic" by the commentator.

8:13 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Yaya blasts one over the bar. Difficult chance.

8:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That's a good question. Sturridge should get a sick note though. Also, I think Klopp is trying to say that Sturridge is out too many matches for it to be worth keeping him at Anfield.

8:14 AM

High and wide by Yaya to Salford.

That's what I was thinking . The Foxes could help us in the wee hours on Valentine's Day

8:16 AM

If Leicester get a draw today and another against Arsenal next week, we can really start talking about Leicester being true title contenders.

8:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That would be bloody hilarious if the Foxes become Champions on the final day of the season at Chelsea, the team expected to be champions.

8:17 AM

Wes Morgan is booked for a foul on Aguero, who is doing his best to win an Oscar.

8:21 AM

Free kick chance for Mity... useless.. didn't beat the first man
Bloody hopeless...keep it up

8:25 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Back to United
LVG is calling United's last two performances were sparkling
Well, it was against DERBY and STOKE!
Stoke have been good but still it's Stoke
United played faster, went forward, got the ball in the box AND shot the ball but I still wasn't that impressed
Very shaky at the back and could have conceded often

I just hate LVG

8:26 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Useless corner by Silva but Kante nodded it back in the danger zone. Goal kick in the end. Another wasted chance for Citeh.

8:26 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Konte with a wayward header and Delph goes down ,trying to win a penalty, but the ref is having none of it.

8:26 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Lity should not just sit back.. don't let Mity come at you for the last 45+ minutes

8:27 AM

I'm just pleased that United are improving. It's a step in the right direction.

8:28 AM

United's Board are really annoying me
Are they having talks with Jose because of Pep...just reacting to the blokes across the city?
If they were going to bring him in, why not after Norwich at home, Sotton at home, Stoke away?

Three minutes of stoppage time at the end of this one.

8:30 AM

Nobody connects on the pass from Aguero then wide from Kolorov from a narrow angle. Into three minutes of stoppage time

8:31 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I think you're probably right, UWS. It's a case of keeping up with the Joneses.

8:31 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Quite a few games in L1 and L2 are off because of waterlogged pitches

8:32 AM

Jose should ship off Jones so we can keep up.

Mity with a corner in the last minute of the half... hold out Lity

Fernando and Ihonatcho both coming on as a response to that goal. Citeh have a lot of work to do.

8:53 AM

Oh - Okazaki had a chance for #3 there!

8:54 AM

This is a real title bid on now, but The Foxes have to keep Mahrez and Vardy fit.

8:55 AM

Oh - fabulous reaction save by Kasper against a header from Fernando!

8:58 AM

Simple corner in and Huth just gets up above everyone else. Phenomenal header.

Citeh seem thoroughly dejected now, as shown in that horrible Raheem Sterling cross. Straight out of play.

9:10 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - great ball through to Vardy and Hart comes up big again against him.

9:10 AM

Okazaki is upended by Zaba who gets a yellow card and Leicester have another chance from a free kick.

First big chance of the day in the Prem, and Ben Foster makes a terrific save from an Alexandar Mitrovic effort.

10:14 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

First goal of the day, and Romelu Lukaku converts, slamming straight down the middle after keeper Jack Butland had felled Tom Cleverly.

That's Everton into the lead at Stoke and The Chunk up to 16 goals on the season, two behind Vardy.

Swansea are into the lead against Palace. A lovely old strike by Gylfi Sigurdsson, curling a free-kick over the wall and into the net, and Palace’s woes continue.

Sounds like a spicy one at St James’s - Newcastle could be a few up already, but Craig Gardner has just hit a free-kick that flicked off the wall and was easily saved by Elliott. I might turn over. This one at the Shite Fart is a bore.

10:19 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Big goal in the Championship, and Derby are going through a rough spell - they’re 1-0 down at Fulham, via an own-goal by new boy Markus Olsson. You can see why they might be nervous given how the last two seemingly inevitable promotion campaigns have gone.

Everton are 0-2 up through a Seamus Coleman goal - a header from 12 yards out.

Jonjo Shelvy continues his great start at Newcastle by threading a pass through the Baggies defense to Mitrovic who gladly finishes.

1-0 Newcastle!

Ben Davies should have scored there but it's well saved by Gomez.

10:37 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

What scenes! A terrible mistake by Phillip Wollscheid presents a chance to Aaron Lennon, who takes the ball through and scores for his third game in succession. Mighty impressive stuff from Everton, perhaps living up to their collective talent for the first time in a while.

Everton 0-3 up!

10:43 AM

Could they get out of this? Joleon Lescott heads home from a free-kick from the right. Presumably they’ll embark on an unlikely title bid next season.

Tottenham putting some pressure on now against Watford. A few minutes ago Harry Kane had a penalty shout turned down, and now Heurelho Gomes has saved a shot from the England forward, patting it down and just getting rid of the rebound too.

GOAL! Trapper finishes off a lovely Tottenham move involving Dembele and Delli Alli.

And there it is for Liverpool! After dominating possession - they had 82% in the first half - they’ve finally broken through, James Milner flinging a cross to the back stick where Roberto Firmino waits, free from the troubles of markers, and heads home.

1-0 Reds!

That should be that at Anfield - Adam Lallana taps home after good work from Firmino to put Liverpool two ahead, and Klopp’s appendix pain is eased a little. Well, sort of. 2-0.

And a goal in the game of the day in the Championship - Burnley have taken a 1-0 lead against Hull, as Sam Vokes gobbles up a rebound after a Joey Barton shot is saved.

It’s the 77th minute at Anfield, and plenty of fans are keeping their promise and leaving in protest against ticket prices at Liverpool. “You greedy bastards, enough is enough,” those who remain/those on their way out sing.

Late goal at Loftus Road, as Matt Phillips sticks a diving header away to make it QPR 1-0 Ipswich.

We need a last minute goal at Elland Road - come on, you Whites!

Those Liverpool fans who did one at 2-0 are going to have a bit of a shock - it’s 2-2, Jermain Defoe bagging the goal to give Sunderland what will probably be a vital point.

So it looks as if all three bottom clubs will be gaining at least a point - Newcastle and Villa are leading and now Sunderland have earned a last ditch point at Anfield. So, Norwich are the real losers today.

Spurs appear to have gathered another three points and will finish tonight second behind Leicester. What a strange season this has been!

My two interests in League 2 had mixed days
Cambridge won 1-0 at home to Daggers
Pompey lost 1-0 at home Orient

Bugger - we've gone down to a home defeat at the hands of Forest. 0-1 there. Ah well, we'll end up on 36 points from 30 matches, with 14 points to get from the remaining 16 matches. Should be doable.
