Soccer Saturday Once Again

Morning, guys - I'm up early on a very dark morning to watch Sunderland v. Arsenal, which on paper looks like a hiding to nothing for the Black Cats. Then we've got nearly a full slate of 10am kick-offs featuring the likes of City, Spurs and United. Finally, we end the day with another look at in-form Liverpool, away to Palace. Join me for all the fun and games today, here on the LOB!

A moment of silence now for to begin the period of marking Remembrance Day.

7:30 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Back from making the morning cuppa to a Moments Silence impeccably observed, even by Fred

7:31 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They're off from the EM

7:32 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Now on with the action. Peter Drury and Jim Beglin on the microphones today as well kick off.

7:32 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Everything is pretty busy. How is everything in WNY

7:32 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Sunderland in their traditional red and white striped kit; Arsenal in a really crap black and day-glo yellow number.

7:33 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Same here, mate. We had Advisement Week this past week. Looking forward to a relaxing weekend.

7:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Alexis called for handball . I guess he thought he could do that because the keepers name is Pickford, who picks up a free kick

7:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sorry. Fred just reminded me that the match is being played at the SOL>

7:35 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Arsenal right on the front foot early on; young Pickford in the Sunderland goal looks to have a busy afternoon ahead of him.

7:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

John O' Shea heads out for a corner that is cleared.

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

Pienaar is down needing treatment now after a nasty one with Mustafi.

7:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Steven Pienaar is down from a challenge from Coq AU VIn, but is able to get up and hobbbles off.

7:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Celtic is one up at Aberdeen about 35 minutes in

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

A lot of chatter on last week's 606 radio call-in about bringing in Fat Sam in place of David Moyes. What's your opinion on that one, MUR?

7:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Kieran Gibbs wins a Gunners corner.

7:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Bangles sang about the corner that's oiut for another.

7:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The keeper lives up to his name as Pickford picks up the corner from Beaker.

7:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I could see that. Fred actually mentioned that a few weeks ago on the LOB, but you mentioned something about a lifetime ban. I agree with Fred unless the ban is in effect.

7:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ozil shoots straight at Pickford off a nice diagonal slide rule pass from Alexis. The Black Cats lack that quality

7:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A superb tackle by Roddie on Coq Au Vin prevents the Gunners from taking the lead as the offside trap was beaten

7:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Black Cats are caught out by a routine long ball as Iwobi rounded Pickford, but the keeper put enough pressure on him to force a poor touch out of play.

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

It would seem a bit of an ethical pickle for the Black Cats unless Sam were to be exonerated. Almost as bad as signing Ched Evans.

7:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Celtic is one up at the half at Aberdeen.

7:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think the SOL is one place that Fat Sam can return to unless the FA puts a halt to that

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

GOAL! Alexis opens the scoring for the Arsenal. That one was coming.

7:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!! ALEXIS GIVES THE GUNNERS THE LEAD. THIS ONE WAS COMING

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

The Ox roasted Duncan Watmore out wide and then whipped in a great cross which Alexis met with significant purpose, beating his man to the ball.

0-1 Gunners!

7:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Coq Au Vin fouls Khazri just outside the Gunners box.

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

And the away crowd raises the old Pet Shop Boys chestnut "1-0 to the Arsenal" at that goal.

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

Oh - Van Arnholt not too far away with that chipped free kick. Cech had it covered, probably.

7:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Van Arnholt takes and there was just a little too much bend on it as Cech watched it go out for a goal kick

7:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It will be 1-0 to the Arsenal as long as Fat Sam was in the England job.

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

The Gunners support now reminding Alexis that he's on 49 goals - they'll want to see his half ton today.

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

Ball's in the net for Sunderland but it's chalked off for offside. But decent encouragement for the home side there. They've responded well to that Alexis goal.

7:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed about the goal. Ox was always going to come out on top against a less than pacy striker .A great cross , but Alexis easily beat O' Shea to a cross at the near post to score with a well placed header

7:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fred says that Hillary will probably do better with the FBI investigation than the Black Cats will do against the Gunners. AN accurate analysis?

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

Iwobi tries a curler that is just over the top.

7:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Iwobi curls a shot inches over after Van Arnholt had his pocket picked by Alexis, who found Iwobi on the counter.

7:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fred wants to go shopping with Van Arnholt after discovering how easy it is to pick pocket a wallet from him.

7:59 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I agree; it looks as if the FBI and its director James Comey have a lot of egg on their faces over this latest investigation. With only 9 days left, I fully expect HRC to win comfortably.

Since Trump is only four points up in Texas, even the Lone Star State is in play for the Democrats - what do you think?

7:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Alexis is fouled on the counter that started off a Black Cats free kick

8:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

My opinion is that there is a higher Hispanic turnout than normal and most if centrist, vote Democrat. It makes you wonder if the FBI and Trump are collaborating. IF HRC wins the election than will Mr. Comey walk the plank with Mr. Moyes.

8:02 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Khazri was dispossessed by Ozil, whom he then fouled. Yellow card and free kick for the Gunners.

8:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Khazri booked for a foul just outside the box.

8:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The free kick from Alexis was curled well over.

8:02 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Well over the top from the Chilean. Half-hour gone and Arsenal looking cozy.

8:03 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ndong , the smoking Bong is booked for a rash challenge.

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

Now it's the flamboyantly coiffed Didier Ndong into the book for a hack on Bellerin.

8:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Gibbs cuts in and shoots straight at Pickford after Khazri was caught in possession by his own corner flag

8:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fred is just as cozy, lying on his back napping with his legs pointing vertically up.

8:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Black Cats were caught out yet again by a routine long ball as the Ox did well to pick out Ozil , who failed to chip over Pickford.

8:10 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

John O'Shea has a hammy problem now and has gone off for treatment. He might be done.

8:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

John O' Shea hands the Captain's armband to Dafoe as he walks off injured. Is that it for him?

8:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Pienaaar is booked for nasty challenge on Pienaar. He could have been off with O'Shea for an early bath that I would not want to watch

8:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Djilobodji is on for O'Shea.

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

Arsenal knocking it about for fun now, coming up on the interval.

8:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Black Cats offside trap has been beaten more often than Trump being caught lying by the fact checkers

8:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The problem for the Gunners is that it's just a one goal lead despite dominating the first half.

8:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Two minutes of stoppage time.

8:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Iwobi shoots well over, to the relief of the long suffering home fans.

8:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I wonder what Kate thinks about Gioroud being a beardy

8:18 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Gunners are one up despite total domination that would suggest that this one should have already been done and dusted.

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

Half-time arrives and I'm off to do some dishes.

8:20 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The second half is underway from the SOL.

8:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

How Davie Moyes is still in charge of the Black Cats is a mystery

8:35 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

We're back on at the Stadium of Light. Forty-five minutes for Sunderland to save David Moyes' career. Another bad loss today would certainly mean curtains for the Scots ginger.

8:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

WAY HAY!!!! Oxford Shoes have taken the lead vs the Evil Lions about a half hour in.

8:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

He and Mr. Comey will be the main course at HRC's first dinner, or so I hear.

8:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I just saw that Leeds host Burton Albion at ER for the first time ever in a league match. Are you expecting three points from that match

8:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Gibbs is called for a foul on Ndong, the Bong.

8:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Like Donald Trump, yet another poor delivery from Khazri, who was poor from a dead ball situation, which will see Davie Moyes being a dead man walking. Any questions?

8:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

BUGGER! The Evil Lions have tied it up at Oxford.

8:42 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Coq au Vin tries a pop but it's zinged out into the carpark.

8:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Coq Au Vin showed why he's not a prolific scorer as he has an effort land in Row W in the cheap seats.

8:46 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I thought that Comey et al were feasting on Weiners?

8:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ironic cheers as , for once, the offside trap works as Alexis is offside from a through ball from the Ox.

8:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Nice one. Probably so, but not Moyes.

8:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Gunners should have gone two up as the Ox was given the freedom of the SOL. He was off to the races from a through ball from Ozil , but scuffed a shot horribly wide with just Pickford to beat

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

Sunderland have a penalty! Oh my!

8:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

WOW!!!! PENALTY TO THE BLACK CATS AS MUSTAFI MISJUDGED A ROUTINE PASS AND CECH TRIPPED WHATMORE IN THE BOX AND IS BOOKED FOR THAT. A LIFELINE FOR MOYES AND HIS BOYZ?

8:54 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That was down to Mustafi's slip when the ball was played through by Ndong. Cech picks up a yellow for the clip.

8:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!!!! 1-1 DAFOE BLASTS THE PENALTY STRAIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE, SENDING CECH THE WRONG WAY

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

The reliable Jermain Defoe knocks home the penalty.

1-1 Game on!

8:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

AN unlikely score based on the Gunners total dominance, but they failed to put the match away and are punished for a costly mistake.

8:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The home fans are going bonkers

8:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Celtic have won 0-1 at Aberdeen.

8:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Djilbodji heads out for a corner after a teasing cross was put in the box.

8:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Giroud on for Iwobi and seconds later heads inches over from a corner.

8:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Will Jan be the man as he's on for Pienaar?

8:59 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Giroud comes on and scores with his first touch!

Why wasn't he on from the start?

9:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!!! GIROUD GIVES THE GUNNERS THE LEAD WITH A GREAT FINISH

9:01 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Ozil should have scored there - too tentative a touch in front of goal.

9:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Kos passed to Alexis , who went on a run and passed out left to Gibbs , whose superb cross was well finished with a great left footed volley from Giroud minutes after coming on.

9:03 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Having clawed their way back into this match once, can the Black Cats do it again?

9:03 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A clumsy challenge by Jan on Coq Au Vin in the D is a sore one, but a set piece chance for the Gunners

9:04 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Down to the last 15 minutes now and the Gunners have a promising free kick opportunity now.

9:04 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Ozil knocks a tame one straight into the wall. He seems off his game today.

9:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The free kick from Ozil is deflected for a corner.

9:04 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Giroud again and the Gunners are rolling!!

9:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!!! 1-3 GUNNERS AS GIROUD SCORES HIS SECOND IN A MATTER OF MINUTES WITH A WELL PLACED HEADER OFF THE CORNER.

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

Simple goal there - nice ball in to the near post and a lovely near post flicked header past Pickford.

1-3!

9:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

This one has been put to bed.

9:06 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

1-4 Arsenal - Alexis with his brace now and Moyes is now considering his retirement options.

9:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!!! 1-4 GUNNERS AS THIS IS GETTING OUT OF HAND. A SIMPLE TAP IN FOR ALEXIS

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

That's the half-ton up for Alexis in just a bit over 100 matches. Great strike rate!

9:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A great run by Ozil found El Neny , who walked like an Egyptian past waht seemed like a bunch of mummies . He found Giroud, whose shot came off the post ,off of Ramsey and Alexis swiveled past Djilibodji to tap in from a yard out

9:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That's really outstanding for the Chilean since joining from Barca

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

Hey Guys... sorry I haven't been by the computer yet this morning
What an embarrassment Sunderland are
1-1 then....

9:11 AM

Sunderland fans now considering nipping off for an early exit. It's a sad, sad day for them.

9:12 AM

Morning, UWS! Great to have you on board. What do you think - will Moyes walk the plank after this one?

9:12 AM

I guess United's pulling power still has some legs

9:12 AM

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

2 out of 30 points is pretty dire but did anyone expect them to win this one?

9:13 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

"The American" - Gooch is coming on for Sunderland now.

9:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning, UWS. Great to have you on board. Surely, this is the end of Davie Moyes's tenure at the SOL. He will probably be getting a pink slip in a few minutes.

9:14 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

As it should be. I reckon that you should put a plaque on the wall behind that chair indicating that I sat there during the World Cup 2014.

Leeds win another one at home today against Burton... could be tied for a playoff position!!

9:22 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Pickford does well as sweeper there, cleaning up before Alexis gets to his hat-trick.

And that's it - Sunderland have had the worst Prem start ever, rock bottom now. Total chaos at the club. Something must change soon.

9:23 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

It's over... worse Premier League start EVER... worse than Derby that got 11 points all season

9:23 AM

Yes - it's a giddy time for us - into the Quarter-finals and now with a chance of inching up into the top half.

Real Dons tie it up

What a rise for them... well above the Fake Dons. Must feel good to go up all the tables and over take the team that took your position

I'm surprised that Wally returned to the Imac. He was sacked for a horrific slump that cost them a spot in the playoffs. Was that a wise choice?

Agreed about Bolton. Real Dons fans must love their rise above their evil namesakes.

Heaton pushes away a shot from Mata and Lingard has a shot deflected for another corner. Arfield heads away the next corner and Hendrick is fouled.
