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!

European Wrap-Up

Due to a heavier than usual work week, I was barely able to watch any of the European action this week. But there were a fair few shocks involved. The week started out with some heroics from Citeh against PSG, with the Ginger Winger notching the winner that put them through to the semis. The big shock, though, was current champions Barca crashing out to Atletico at the quarterfinal stage. Wow!

The best match of the week, though, was arguably Liverpool's astounding come from behind win against heavily favored Dortmund at Anfield.

All of this means that many of us went crashing out of both of the Champions League and the Europa League due to heavy betting on Barca and Dortmund. In pole position now are Gooner, who plumped for Real Madrid in the CL and Someone Said (Sevilla) and especially Yellows, who is still in the CL with Real and the Europa with Liverpool. Should be a thrilling end to the season. See you in the morning!

It was a classic at Anfield. I think Yellows is in pole position, having also picked United to win the FA Cup.
