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 Plot Thickens

It's a big, big weekend in the Premiership this weekend, chaps. It all starts early doors at the Stadium of Light tomorrow morning with United's trip to Sunderland. That's followed by a bunch of rubbish matches at 10am. But then we finish up with the relegation battle between Newcastle and, eep, Chelski. Loads at stake. Don't forget to join me for all the LOB banter.

Good morning mate. Fred and I are up , raring to go.

Morning, MUR - welcome!

7:33 AM

Cheers mate. I looked at the time of the post. Early to bed and early to rise?

7:35 AM

With 13 games of the season to go, time’s running out a little for both of these clubs. Manchester United are 12 points off the title pace set by Leicester City, and six off the Champions League places.

Sunderland’s need is certainly the greater, though. It’s not quite got to desperation levels yet, but they’re four points shy of safety right now, and with a none-too-friendly goal difference either.

Early to bed after a long and tough week, mate. Glad to be able to relax and enjoy some footer today.

Elizabeth and I were out having a few ales as part of an early Valentine's Day celebration. She did get some Black Russian coffee when she was out shopping and I will surely need it since United are playing early doors.

We've booked into one of the nicest restaurants in town, the site of our first date, for a romantic dinner tonight. However, we're not sure about it - it's meant to be 5F tonight. Brrr!

Yikes! You should be here. It's as if Spring back came to our area this week. Warm days with low humidity and cool evenings.

7:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They're off from the SOL

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

The Black Cats get us going wearing their traditional strip. United in an odd combination of black tops and white shorts.

7:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The strong coffee will come in handy. After all, we're watching United!

7:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fred is joining us too. I fed him and have petted him, which is nice under the circumstances.

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

Well, they've been a bit more entertaining recently. Sunderland have also been in better form under Fat Sam in 2016. Six points from eight matches.

7:47 AM

Van Arnholt wins a free kick off of Darmian. I thought he ran into him

7:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

DAMN > The Black Cats score off the free kick

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

Sunderland have an early free kick chance.

It's whipped in and - oh dear - evades Twilight and goes in off the post!

0-1!

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

Well, that's changed the dynamic of this match in a hurry. Now United have to take the match to Sunderland.

7:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It was a miss hit free kick. Dafoe tried toback heel it and completely missed it as it fooled De Gea and went into the back of the net. A great start for Khazri on his debut and a bit fortunate too.

7:49 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Almost an immediate response from Rooney. His effort was blocked out.

7:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Great block by Van Arnholt from Roon as United attempt to tie it up.

7:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fred is starting his nap after a lively start to the morning. Hopefully, that is symbolic.

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

The match-up between Kung Fu Panda and the American Deandre Yedlin should be interesting.

7:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Elizabeth and I decided to celebrate Valentine's last night . I agreed since the match of the weekend is on at the crack of bloody dawn tomorrow and she wants us to go visit the in-laws on Monday. Process of elimination.

7:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Lingard is down, holding his ankle. He was caught by Kierkhoff after making a tackle. he seems to be okay

7:54 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Defoe was in there but just didn't have enough room to provide an adequate finish.

7:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

PHEW!!!! United are looking like the team that is second from bottom as Darmian is tackled and ping pong action in the United box as Dafoe shoots just wide.

7:56 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That makes sense. It is an early, early start tomorrow.

7:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Are you aware that Leeds play on Monday? We will be up at the in-laws as part of our three day weekend.

7:57 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Ah - Darmian had acres of space to find a good cross but hits the first man with his ball in. What a waste!

7:57 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I saw that - it's during my office hours. I may or may not be able to catch that.

7:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

An O'Shea tackle leads to a United corner taken by Blind and headed out by Kiekchoff.

7:58 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Fat Sam has a problem here, with a player down with a hammy strain. It's Jan Kierkoff. He'll need to come off.

7:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Kierckhoff, who has been off to a good start is down, injured and looks to be done for the day. That will be a huge loss for the Black Cats. I think Jack Rodwell is set to replace him.

7:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sorry about that, mate. Perhaps you can record the match. We will since the in-laws don't get BEIN.

8:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Van Arnholt shoots wide after a long throw from Yeltsin was not properly headed away.

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

Yeah - I may DVR it but I also might have a lighter afternoon on Monday. I know I have one appointment at 3:30 (aka 'half time') but otherwise shouldn't be bothered.

8:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

There are times when Darmian's delivery is that of an incompetent comedian.

8:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's against the Teesiders, so it will be a challenge.

8:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A west London Derby is BEIN played and team for your house has taken the lead at JFH's lads. Not a nice way to treat a legend from ER,.

8:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The goal was scored by Leeds old boy , Ross , so it's a fair cop.

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

Big appeals for a penalty but nothing doing from Andre Marriner.

8:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Darmian is definitely having a mare and should be subbed at halftime. The Black Cats want a penalty as Khazri shoots and blocked by Schneiderlin

8:11 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Ross has done well for the Cottagers.

8:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The replay shows ball to hand. Not a penalty.

8:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Cottagers go two up at JFH's lads.

8:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Moussa Dembele with the goal , but not the one from SFL.

8:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Well wide by Khazri after Smalling was caught dilly dallying by Dafoe, who played through the debut boy.

8:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Roon wind United's second corner of the match. As earlier, the corner from Blind was headed out by the first man, then a shot from Smalling comes off O'Shea for another.

8:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

N'Doye , the Boy, heads out the corner from Blind.

8:15 AM

Mata side foots a first time shot straight to Vito off a pass from Roon.

YIKES!!!!! The Cottagers are three up at JFH's lads seconds before the halftime whistle,.

United need a bit more cut and thrust to their attack.

They need something because they look really toothless.

I don't understand why that isn't obstruction at the very least. You see so few indirect free kicks these days.

Good morning UWS. Happy Birthday to Kathy. You will probably be better off starting the birthday celebrations than watching United.

That's it for Darmian as he holds his shoulder and is replaced by Scots U-21 international , Love pre Valentine's Day

Martial scores!!

ABOUT BLOODY TIME UNITED

8:23 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

YES!!!! UNITED KARATE CHOP THEIR WAY TO AN EQUALIZER. FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS MATCH , UNITED PLAYED SOME DECENT STUFF AS MANAONE SAVED A SHOT FROM MATA THEN KUNG FU PANDA DINKED IN THE REBOUND FROM A NARROW ANGLE.

8:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It came seconds after United's debut boy came on. Got to love it.

8:25 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh dear - it's the Nocito Curse for me today. I thought I could risk a trip to the bog just before half time and I've missed Martial equalizer.

Morning, UWS!

Donald Love, a Scots U-21 internatioanl from Rochdale , sees United playing better stuff as United win another corner,.

8:26 AM

United take it short and the cross from Lingard is just too high for Smalling.

Great finish from a tight angle!

Sorry Bob. Hopefully you will be around to witness some United goals.

I hope so! Fortunately, it was quite a significant finish for me, too, in there. And from a difficult angle.

Four minutes of stoppage to come.

8:30 AM

Four minutes of stoppage time.

8:30 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

United are still pretty useless going forward!!!

Did you see Will Keane is on the bench for United today
Called back from loan in January
Scored a boatload midweek in a 7-1 win

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

What the hell has happened to Jack Rodwell's career. At one point, I thought he might make a great playmaker for England. Now he's toiling away in a relegation battling side and could well drop divisions next season. Did his short stint at Citeh ruin him?

8:32 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I heard about that. I think it was for the reserves vs the Canaries reserves. Not sure what that means.

8:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think Rodwell has been injury ridden and may not be the same player again

8:34 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Ht
1-1
Not good enough

8:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's 1-1 at the half and strange as it may sound, they have stunk , but seem to be in the driver's seat

8:34 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

There are no reserves any more... it is U21s and everyone hates it!

8:44 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

the U21 league is pathetic apparently

8:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

What a shame. So what happens to those that can't make the first team squad that are too old for the U 21 League?

8:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The second half is underway.

8:49 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Second half underway

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

We're back on at the Stadium of Light. Darmian is off to hospital and Roon has picked up a yellow for a cynical tug back.

8:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

O' Shea was booked at the the end of the first half. Now Roon is booked for a foul on Cattermole as both skippers are in the book.

8:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Cattermole has a shot deflect off of Dafoe and straight to De Gea.

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

Defoe is not only a ball hog; he's also a bit of a goal hanger.

8:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

How about doppleganger?

8:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Borthy is called for a foul on N'Doye.

8:53 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Could be an evil twin, I suppose.

8:54 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Useless start for United

8:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The free kick from Khazri is headed out by Roon for a corner. The corner from Khazri is headed out and after some ping pong action off his return cross, United now are on the attack.

8:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fred is in deep sleep on the couch , signifying that he is not any more impressed than UWS.

8:55 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Rooney turns it round for a corner. That came off his hand, which was above his head, though the close proximity of the players to each other presumably informed the decision to let that one go. If the referee didn’t, it was a penalty and a second yellow for Rooney! But that would have been super harsh; he was right on O’Shea’s back.

8:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Next up it's the Baggies vs the Toffees on NBCSN and the Canaries vs the Hammers on Born in the USA.

8:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Correct. United got away with one there .

8:57 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Yedlin did well to stand that ball up but no one attacked it.

And now Cattermole finds a pass but Blind blocks it out. United under the cosh.

8:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!!! A timely goal line block by Blind from Dafoe keeps it tied as young Love was caught out of position. I didn't love it.

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

United fans won't be happy to see a relegation battler putting their side to the test today.

8:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Kone called for a foul on Mata,

8:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. We should expect better from United.

8:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Now Mata is booked. He lost the ball then tripped his opponent.

9:02 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

What the hell was that from Mata? Completely mishit the pass and then picked up a yellow for a rash tackle back.

9:02 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Now Carrick into the book for a late one.

9:03 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Now Carrick is booked as Andre Marriner hands out his cards the day before Valentines .

9:03 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

United STINK

United saved by De Gea again

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

Oh - N'Doye was in on goal there but Twilight did so well to keep him out.

9:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

PHEW!!!! Great kick save from De Gea off of N'Doye as he was played through by Cattermole on a great break.A nice corner from Khazri was whipped in as a shot went sideways and then a bicycle kick from Kone was over.

9:06 AM

Memphis on for Lingard on his birthday.

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

3.15 to come on now.

9:07 AM

I didn't love that foul on Khazri about 25 yards from the United goal.

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

Sunderland have a chance now.

9:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

BOOM BOOM!!!! Better than 3.16

9:08 AM

De Gea comfortably saves the free kick from Khazri.

The Black Cats lost home win vs United was nineteen years ago. United won the title and the Black Cats were relegated.

9:10 AM

Memphis not off to a good start vs Yeltsin.

9:10 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

The way he has been he should be D1.14

9:10 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I've missed a lot of this second half.. have United had any chances?

9:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mata has a shot blocked off a run and pass from 3.14 metres away

9:12 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Mata has a shot blocked
D1.14 beats a man but took an age to get it over

9:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Nice one, UWS. There should be a negative sign in front of that

9:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Other than that blocked effort, no United chances of notes. The Black Cats have had a few chances.

9:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Borini is on for Dafoe.

9:14 AM

De Gea does well to turn over a curling effort from N'Doye

9:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Carrick heads out the corner from Khazri

9:16 AM

Nice solo run from Yeltsin after Roon conceded possession , but it ended with a nice tackle from B_J

Wilson wasn't scoring when playing for United. It's this horrible defensive system.

Being dominated by a bottom two club

Agreed, UWS. Now the Black Cats are points from safety, pending the result in the late match.

Exactly, UWS . I agree 100% except that they are now third from bottom.

9:29 AM

A win and United would have gained points on at least TWO of the teams in front of them... now 5 points behind and one more game played

West Ham win at Carrow Road and United will drop below the Hammers

Memphius has a close range effort deflected for a corner after a pass from Roon was not cleared

9:33 AM

A big appeal for a penalty waved away by Marriner. That would have been harsh on O'Shea who was hit on the elbow. Ball to hand.

Useless corner from Blind

Sorry, lads. That was horrible. I suppose you could say that one of those penalty claims could have been given, but they didn't really deserve better than a 2-2 draw. It's a huge win for Sunderland but a sad collapse for United. Hoping that will usher LVG out of OT.

Both televised matches feature teams that had midweek marathon cup replays and both are on the road. The Hammers , who scored a list minute ET winner vs Pool, are at the Canaries while the Baggies who won a penalty shoot at Posh despite being out played , are at the Toffees , who have benched Timmy.
