Lakenheath Old Boys

An Odd Saturday Schedule

Morning, lads - I'm up early to follow Leeds' visit to Cardiff on a very odd Saturday morning. First off, the match is not BEin televised for some reason. What gives? That's followed at 10am with a number of matches that are on the box, including Hull v. Arsenal and Citeh v. Bournemouth. We end the day then with Everton v. Boro. Join me during a very odd Saturday, won't you?

So, here's what happened. After a long workweek, I thought: well, the match isn't being televised, so I'll just have a wee nap on the magical couch. Well, because it's magical, I fell asleep until just now.

But we're winning! Maybe I should sleep through all our matches?

Hull v. Arsenal is over on CNBC - might flip over to that one occasionally. The big news there is that Granit Xhaka isn't in the side. That £30 million doesn't look a very good investment now.

Good morning chaps. It looks like Citeh vs the Cherries on NBCSN . Becky just stated that the Gunners vs the Tigers is on PLET

Diego Costa has five goals now; Sergio has some catching up to do today. I'd like to see another hat-trick, like he got in mid-week.

Several goals in L1 : The following teams take the lead

GOAL !!! DE BRUYNE GIVES CITEH THE LEAD WITH A FREE KICK

10:15 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Ginger Winger from a free kick drills a low one home.

The wall jumped and he knocked it underneath them.

1-0!

10:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Cheeky by the Ginger Winger as the wall jumped and De Bruyne slid it under the jumping wall, deceiving Boruc. Eddie Howe will not be pleased as Wilshere conceded a cheap free kick on Nolito just outside the box then a poor job by the wall.

10:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Donald Trump claims that he can build a better wall.

10:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!! Nolito has a shot easily saved by Boruc when he should have scored. Nolito tackled Wilshere then played a nice one two with the Ginger Winger.

10:18 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Wilshere gets caught in possession and Citeh are away again. Ginger finds Nolto who shoots at Boruc. Citeh are rampant now.

It was a spicy free kick that saw the Cherries seasoned with Ginger. I like my cherries without any seasoning.

Bournemouth are being ripped apart here. My PPP lead is safe this week, at least.

10:26 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It was a BArca style goal. The free kick was headed out to Ihenacho , who played a pass down the elft to Kolorov, who picked out De Bruyne . He passed out to Sterling who passed to Ihenacho, who tapped it at the far post from a yard out. Great team goal

10:27 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I picked them to stay up. I'm sure they will pick up points against the teams in the lower half as they did last week vs the Baggies.

10:28 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ihenacho should be called Magnus Magnusson. He started it so he finished it. Do you agree?

10:29 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed about HRC. Just because she's a Gunners fan doesn't mean she can sit on her Arse.

Bravo makes a close range block from Stanislaus then Citeh struggle to clear. If Bravo had been more decisive he could have gathered the ball.

10:39 AM

Oh - Boruc is keeping the score down here. Ihenacho combine again with Sterling on the end of a chance. Should be 4 or 5-0.

A minute of stoppage time. Howe the Cherries will be glad to hear the halftime whistle.

James McLean with the third Baggies goal as the Hammers are being taken to the cleaners

10:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Jake Livermore sent off for denying a goal scoring opportunity in the box for intentional hand ball. I thought that was supposed to be a booking under the new rules. Either way , Alexis had his spot kick saved by Jakupovic, but the Gunners are a man up the rest of the match, which may influence the result.

10:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Foxes took the lead vs Burnley on the stroke of halftime as Islam Slimani headed in a free kick from Danny Drinkwater. His first goal for the Foxes.

10:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The second half is underway from the Etihad. Callum Wilson is on for Jordan Ibe. Howe he didn't start is a mystery to yours truly, especially since he scored the winner last week.

11:02 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Back on for the second half at the Etihad.

11:03 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Better from the Cherries as it was anice pass by Harry Arter, but a miss kick from Stanislaus . A great chance

11:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Then GOAL !!! CITEH GO THREE UP SECONDS LATER AND PUNISH THE CHERRIES FOR NOT TAKING THEIR CHANCE.

11:05 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

3-0!

Sterling taps home after a training pitch exercise. Bournemouth will survive this season but they're getting a thumping today.

11:05 AM

Another chance for Citeh as HArry Arter fouls Fernandinho about 25 yards out. Boruc pushes away the free kick from De Bruyne.

The Foxes go two up vs Burnley. Islam Slimani with both goals.

11:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Back to the Citeh goal. At 2-0 down. Junior Stnilaus sliced his shot with just Bravo to beat. The ball was cleared by the Citeh corner flag and found Ihencho on the half way line . He played a one two with De Bruyne then his slide rule pass was tapped in at the far post by Sterling and it was cleared , but had just made it over the line

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

Bournemouth still giving it a go but it seems a hopeless venture now.

11:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Just as one sided in the Bundesliga as Dortmund go four up vs Darmstadt and newly promoted Leipzig paying off their investment, go three up at Hamburg. Bayern lead 2-1 vs Inglestadt late on.

11:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bravo with an easy save from Callum Wilson then Boruc tips over a long range effort from Sterling. Ihenacho heads the corner from De Bruyne well wide.

11:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Boruc is down again. He seemed to injure himself when the third goal was scored. He will be replaced by Aussie keeper, Adam Federici.

11:14 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I don't know anything about Slimani. He sounds like a dietary supplement.

11:21 AM

Boruc still in goal. Charlie Daniels looking more like Jack as Sterling picks his pocket, goes on a solo run, nutmegs Boruc, has a shot come off the post and into Boruc's arms.COR!

WOW!!! Lots of vital goals.

11:25 AM

Goasling on for Wilshere, who can't play a full 90 minutes for the Cherries, yet was picked for the England sqyad for the Euuros ahead of the excellent Danny Drinkwater. And Woy wonders why he was being mocked? This is a perfect example./

Well, well! Nolito has been sent off!

11:42 AM

No complaints, really. He squared up against Adam Smith and motioned to head-butt him. Silly boy.

11:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Nolito head butts Adam Smith and is sent off by Jon Moss. That was really stupid with his team four up with five minutes remaining. Pep disputes the decision, but it was an easy decision for John Moss. Pep makes sure Nolito heads straight to the dressing room.

11:43 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That'll be a three-game ban, then. So, he and Aguero will be missing from the next one.

11:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

He will be out for the Capital One Cup match and the two remaining Prem matches headed into the international break. His only action for Citeh will be a CL match. He should be well rested by this time next month

Into stoppage time now....

11:47 AM

Plenty of action from the KC. Snoddy pulled one back from the spot for the Tigers then Alexis scored a second to put the Gunners up 1-3.

11:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The red card was the right decision in this match , but not at the KC because denying a scoring opportunity in the box is just a booking. The Tigers will claim they could have got something out of the match had it been 11 vs 11.

The Gunners now lead 1-4 at the KC with Xhakha Khan scoring his first for the Gunners. My comment for Mike Phelan is " I Feel For You" as his team have been a man down most of the match and incorrectly so.
