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!

Nice Remembrance Day tribute in progress.

7:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

There are nine FA Cup First Round matches today

7:01 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

How was your conference?

7:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. A great tribute.

7:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They're off from the EM

7:02 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Arlo White and both Lee Dixon and Graham Le Socks on board today.

7:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It was long and tedious, lasting till 4 PM. Nothing like a six day work week, but I will be on Thanksgiving Break in a fortnight.

7:03 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The usual culprits doing the announcing and sharing their words of wisdom.

7:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Kyle Walker heads over a cross from Danny Rose.

7:04 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Early chance for Danny Rose to get a cross over. His full-back partner Kyle Walker rises but puts over with the header.

7:05 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I've got one coming up in DC the week after Thanksgiving. I'll combine the professional duties with visiting with the Gooner and Dad.

7:05 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Son broke and nearly fed Harry Kane at the backpost. Good start for the Spuds.

7:06 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Wimmer left one on Coq au Vin there and he'll pick up the game's first yellow.

7:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sounds like a great deal. I was dreaming of a week off on a day that dragged on and on.

7:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Congratulations on a hard fought win at CR. You must be delighted at beating the poachers and being in a playoff spot for the first time in years

7:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Gunners go top with a win, pending Pool's result later this morning

7:10 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Nice cut and thrust to this match already.

7:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ozil offside off a nice pass from Nacho. There were some spicy peppers ion those Nachos.

7:12 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I am delighted with our form right now. I wish we weren't interrupted by the international break. It seems as if every time we get some momentum going, we've got ten days off.

7:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. Citeh looked to have hurt you yesterday and Chelsea really sent out a message yesterday, but Toffees do have a soft center.

7:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

LOL. The typical zipper problems for Arsene.

7:14 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Arsenal are coming into the game now, with Sanchez looking sharp. But Tottenham will be the happier side.

7:17 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

He needs a dresser on the sideline.

7:18 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Nothing much is happening. Arsenal look surprisingly nervous for a side who have been in such great form.

7:19 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

A heart-stopping moment there for Cech and Mustafi.

7:20 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's that November hoodoo, Surely , they're too professional to worry about those silly things.

7:20 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I went to bed really early, so I had a decent night's sleep. Another hour or so would have been optimal, but the time change helped.

7:21 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I wonder if Gooner and dad are watching. Gooner must have flicked off the fans clad in nay blue and white.

7:22 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Harry Kane heads just wide off a cross from Eriksen

7:23 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Theo is offside to end a good possession

7:24 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'm sure that Gooner is watching. Dad may be having brekkies down in the cafe. He can never miss that.

7:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Real is two up vs Leganes midway through the second half. Another noon kickoff. Those Leganes fans must be Real hooligans. for a noon enforced kickoff in Spain

7:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That's quite understandable. Perhaps , he will be around for the second half. Surely, Simon is watching.

7:26 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

What's with this "Three at the Back" trend this weekend. Both Chelski and Everton played that way yesterday. It worked for Chelski - for Everton, not so much.

7:27 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I would imagine so.

7:27 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Coq Au Vin jas a really powerful volley blocked.

7:29 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think three at the back is common in Italian footie. It will work for certain teams .

7:29 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's just starting to get light here.

7:30 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Alexis tries a rugby conversion there - doesn't quite come off.

7:31 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Alexis has a shot land in Row M after Bellerin tackled Danny Rose on the high press.

7:31 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Kyle Walker is down getting treated for some sort of injury.

7:31 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Kyle Walker is down getting treatment now - a bit of a stalemate so far.

7:31 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ozil drags an effort well wide off a great pass from Alexis.

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

Oh - Iwobi had a great chance there on the end of a super move. Didn't put any power into it.

7:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!!! Iwobi should have given the Gunners the lead .A tame close range effort was easily saved by Lloris after a counter lead by ALexis and Ozil , then a great through ball to Iwobi.

7:34 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Morning boys
Just a quick check in for a bit before I leave to work at the Olympic Development Program... $120 for 3 hrs work so it's easy money. I have to do it for three straight Sunday mornings!
Still scoreless at the Em but very quick stuff...unlike United!

7:35 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Again, congrats Bob for your lot!! Could they vie for promotion?

7:36 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Nice week coming up
No kids on Tuesday and no school Friday

7:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning, UWS. Well done on promoting the sport. A great gig. Keep up the good work.

7:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sounds like a great week. I will be on Thanksgiving Break in a fortnight. Much needed after a six week work week this week,

7:38 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

This is an odd game in that there have been precious few set pieces for either side.

7:38 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Morning, UWS - great to hear from you!

7:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Wanyama called for a push , or rather barge, on Theo. The free kick is headed away

7:39 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Sorry I have been a miss as of late

Are you guys around for the Old Enemy clash on Friday?

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

Thanks for the Leeds shout-out. I don't know. I fully expect Cellino to sell Chris Wood, who's scored 11 for us this season, in January. That would put an end to any promotion hopes for us. We'll see. I'm just happy that we're reasonably secure now for survival.

7:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's a tight match as I expected. I'm sure Chelsea and Liverpool fans will be rooting for the Spuds.

7:40 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I should be, mate. Friday looks okay for me at work.

7:40 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Think GOING UP!!

7:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Yes. I will be around for the U.S. vs Mexico.

7:40 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - terrific drive by Theo off the post. Ozil should have scored on the rebound.

7:41 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I HAVE NO WORK ON FRIDAY!!!!

7:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

WOW!!! A long range effort from Theo cannons off the post then Ozil shoots the rebound over. The closest either team has come to scoring

7:41 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

LOL, MUR! I think UWS meant the Auld enemy.

7:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I will be teaching during England vs Scotland, so I will need to record the match.

7:42 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I did... auto correct

7:42 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Wimmer is riding a fine line now - he went through the back of Ozil once again.

7:42 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Does Wanyama ever pass the ball forward? Such a negative player.

7:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I work Friday, , but have an entire week off for Thanksgiving.

7:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Thanks, Bob. I think both matches are on FS1

7:44 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

You guys don't get Veteran's Day
Isn't it a national holiday.
I guess Matt and Jon don't get it off in college

7:44 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

GOAL!!

THE GOONERS TAKE THE LEAD!

7:44 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! An own goal from Kevin Wimmer, who's having a 'mare on his first match of the season!

7:44 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

OG but was it offside?
If the guy goes for the ball he's offside

7:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!!! WIMMER HEADS INTO HIS OWN GOAL OFF THE FREE KICK FROM OZIL. UWS WOULD HAVE BEEN PROUD OF THAT HEADER, BUT PROBABLY NOT BOB.

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

That is a cracking finish from Wimmer, rising and nodding right into the corner past Lloris. Nice one!

1-0 Arse!

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

I don't think I ever scored an own goal - not in my memory.

7:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I thought it was offside, but Gooner and Simon will probably disagree.

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

We don't get Veteran's Day, no. There are a lot of federal holidays that we don't take - e.g., Columbus Day.

7:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It is a national holiday, but the girls and I have nevre been off for Veterans Day

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

Bit of handbags between both teams. Clattenberg will have to sort it out now.

7:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Theo and Vertonghen are lectured by Mark Clattenburg after a bench clearing brawl nearly started.

7:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Three minutes of stoppage time.

7:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I will be around for the U.S. vs Mexico in case anyone wants to join me. It's an 8 PM kickoff.

7:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mustafi is down with ahead injury after a clash with Coq AU Vin. More like a hangover.

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

How could be offside if Wimmer nodded into his own net?

7:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Now that I look at the replay, the two Gunners that were offside weren't going for the ball. The one that did was level with Wimmer. I think it's a valid goal.

7:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The cross from Ozil is too high for Theo.

7:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Gunners are one up at the half thanks to an OG scored a few minutes ago. That puts them top of the pops.

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

That's the first half, then. Arsenal players will trot in happy. I'm off for a snuggle with the missus.

7:51 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Have a good rest of the time on LOB and weekend

Talk to you on Friday

TTFN

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

The players are coming back out. What answer will Spurs have to the Gunners going ahead. If this result holds, Arsenal will go top for the next two weeks.

8:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The second half is underway from the EM.

8:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Cheers , UWS. Have fun with the Olympic program

8:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Clumsy by Kos on Number One Son.

8:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Delle Ali looks like a kid , who was sucker punched.

8:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Number One Son goes on a solo run on a break after a stray pass from Iwobi, but made to feel like Number Two Son once some Gunners defenders ganged up on him.

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

Great tackle back by Bellerin there to snuff out the danger.

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

Penalty to Spurs!!

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

Koz tripped up Dembele in a nothing area at the top of the box. Silly boy.

Kane to take..scores!!!

1-1!

8:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

PENALTY SPUDS . KOS CALLED FOR A FOUL ON DEMBELE. THAT LOOKED SOFT. GOONER, SIMON, AND DAD MUST BE LIVID.

GOAL !!!! HARRY KANE TIES IT UP OM HIS RETURN TO THE SIDE, SENDING LLORIS THE WRONG WAY WITH IT SHOT STRAIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE.

8:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That goal puts Chelsea back on top.It's now 1-1.

8:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Welcome back, Bob.Did you have brekkies at the half?

8:14 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - great save by Cech.

8:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Great save by Cech from Eriksen off a headed pass from Number One Son.

8:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I'm doing a load of laundry, defrosting a whole chicken , and went to the loo during the halftime break.

8:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Nearly another OG for Wimmer as heads over a teasing cross from Theo.

8:18 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Just fixing brekkies now - an Entenman's coffee cake, banana and tea.

8:18 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mustafi heads over the corner from Nacho after it was headed on.

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

The needless manner of Spurs’ equaliser has unsettled Arsenal. But they have a corner after a vital header over his own bar by Wimmer.

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

Giroud is warming up now - he was a supersub last week; will he do it again?

8:19 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

WOW!! That's quite a brekkies. I will be taking Sparky walkies as soon as this match ends, so I'm not sure when I will be having brekkies.

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

Oh - Kane was nearly in there but Monreal got back to foil him.

8:21 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Nacho with a great tackle on Harry Kane off a pass from Danny Rose. No, just some rustiness from Harry

8:21 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I probably won't be around for the late one between Leicester and WBA. Lots of grading to do this weekend.

8:22 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Dier cuts out a pass for a Gunners corner that is taken short and LLoris does well to push away a header from Xakha Khan for another corner.

8:23 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mustafi heads over the corner from Ozil.

8:23 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Danny Rose wins a corner for the Spuds that is taken short and goes out for a goal kick.

8:24 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I completely understand. I am lucky that progress reports were due Friday , so I got my Grading out of the way Thursday night.

8:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Aaron Ramsey is on for Coq Au Vin

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

Ramsey on for Iwobi. I don't really see the point of Iwobi. He hasn't scored this season. How does he start every match?

8:26 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

There was an odd request by Fred for some cherry pie that I denied.

8:26 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sorry. I thought Coq Au Vin came off or it may have been an excuse to use his name.

8:27 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

LOL! Fred has odd taste.

8:28 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Danny Rose appeared to have twisted his ankle, but appears to be okay. He should be available for selection against the Auld Enemy.

8:29 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

You are correct. It was Coq au Vin. A more progressive move from Wenger. Iwobi should have gone off.

8:29 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

He says that they got their first Prem win of the season yesterday by a goal despite being a man down.

8:30 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Arsene about to make his final spins of the roulette wheel. Giroud on for Iwobi and the Ox on for Theo. Great moves by Arsene that should please both Bob and Kate.

8:32 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Wanyama with a nasty intoduction to the Ox.

8:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Lloris with a great close range block from Ozil off a pass from Alexis , then Aaron Ramsey shoots just over from the corner.

8:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Vinny Jansen is on for Harry Kane in a like for like swap.

8:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Eric Dier is booked for either a foul on Alexis or the time wasting.

8:34 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Dier buys himself a yellow card. Silly.

8:35 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Real have defeated Leganes 3-0.

8:35 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bellerin has a shot deflect off of Kyle Walker and to Lloris.

8:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

High and wide by Aaron Ramsey, who looked more like Miley Cyrus with that effort.

8:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Kieran Trippier, doing his best Zorro impersonation, is on for the injured Kyle Walker./

8:41 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Ten minutes for these sides to sort this one out.

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

If the score remained the same, Arsenal would go level with Citeh on 24 points, with Citeh having better GD. Chelski would be top going into the international Break. I wonder what that would do for the PPP.

8:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Trippier trips Xakha Khan

8:43 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Ozil with a chance to swing a ball in from a free kick. Rubbish.

8:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Did anyone pick Chelsea to win the Prem. Also Pool could go ahead of Chelsea on gd with a big win vs the Hornets

8:44 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - off the post from Ericsson's free kick! Wow!

8:45 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The Ox with a horrible pass straight out of play.

8:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!!! A curling free kick from Eriksen eludes everyone and comes off the post . Cech was out of position.

8:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Danny Rose is the worse for wear off a challenge from the Ox.

8:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sparky is asking for walkies. He has not adjusted to the time change.

8:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Wimmer tackles for a Gunners corner off a great pass from the Ox.

8:48 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Can Sparky wait a few minutes?

8:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The corner from Ozil is cleared, but the Gunners retain possession.

8:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Great sweeper keeping from Cech.

8:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Yes. He will need to wait a bit.

8:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Young Harry winks on for his first London Derby as he's on for Number One Son. He will be on for just a wink.

8:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Vinny Jansen forces a great save from Cech off a long diagonal from Eriksen . The offside flag is raised , but Clattenburg waves play on./

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

Decent chance for Giroud there but his header was straight at Lloris.

8:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Giroud heads stright to Lloris off a cross from ALexis. Five minutes of stoppage time.

8:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mustafi called for a foul on Jansen. A miss kick from Jansen off a cross from Danny Rose then well over by Wanyama.

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

Good boy.

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

Deep into stoppage time now. Surely this one is over.

8:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Trippier is offside off a really long Spuds possession.

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

And that's that - Arsenal will stay in third, but will give Liverpool a chance to leapfrog them. Spurs will remain in fifth.

8:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's over and it finishes 1-1 in the North London Derby. Now time to take Sparky walkies. Chelsea stay top of the pops.

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

Liverpool v. Watford is up next. Liverpool have been the most entertaining side to watch in the Premiership recently. Are you sticking around for that one or going on walkies?

9:00 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

We're set to go at Anfield now. Here are the teams:

Liverpool
Karius; Clyne, Lucas, Matip, Milner; Can, Henderson; Lallana, Mane, Coutinho; Firmino. Subs: Wijnaldum, Sturridge, Klavan, Moreno, Mignolet, Origi, Oviemuno Ejaria.

Watford
Gomes; Janmaat, Kaboul, Britos, Holebas; Amrabat, Behrami, Capoue; Pereyra, Ighalo, Deeney. Subs: Mariappa, Guedioura, Zuniga, Sinclair, Watson, Kabasele, Pantilimon.

Referee: Michael Oliver (Northumberland)

9:15 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

You don't see that often. Referee Oliver blows for a bad kick-off and has them do it again.

9:16 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Audacious effort from Britos, somewhere near the halfway line, he tries to lob Karius. We know the jury might be out on the German keeper, but steady on...

9:20 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Firmino with a nice chance there from Milner's cross.

9:23 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Game hasn’t really settled yet. Watford are pressing Liverpool very high, but that happens so much these days against teams who play out from the back, it’s hardly worth noting.

9:23 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I'm back from walkies on a warmer than expected morning for some Darke commentary

9:27 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Lucas heads wide from a free kick taken by Miner.

9:28 AM

The Saints have taken the lead at the KC

9:28 AM

Charlie Austin from the spot at the KC.

Blogger manunitedrules said...

Some early FA Cup goals:

The Tangerines take the lead vs Kidderminster
Maidstone United take a shock lead vs Rochdale

Taunton Town takes the lead vs Barrow.

St.Albans surprisingly holding Carlisle United 1-1

9:32 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Lucas with a huge chance at the backpost. That would have been a collector's item - he hasn't scored in six years!

9:32 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Welcome back, mate - how was your walkies?

9:32 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Lucas has a close range effort saved by Gomes as the corner was headed on by Firmino. All three are from Brazil.

9:33 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That Saints goal might take them above United - you lot need a win today in the worst way.

9:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Thanks ,Bob. Sparky and I got hot and are trying to cool down

9:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. If we can't defeat the Swans then where is our next win?

9:34 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Coutinho off the underside of the bar. Wouldn't have counted anyway - offside.

9:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!!! Off the underside of the bar from Coutinho from a pass by Clyne, but the offside flag was raised.

9:34 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Beautiful day up here today. I'll be doing plenty of raking this afternoon. I reckon another two weekends of it and I'll be done for the season. I would estimate that I put 50-60 wheelbarrows of leaves in the compost heap in the back every fall.

9:35 AM

Boreham Wood take a shock lead vs Notts County in the Cup


BUGGER!!! The Evil Blades take the lead vs the Orient Express.

9:36 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - how did Countinho miss that one? A goal is coming, for sure.

9:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Into the side netting by Countinho with just Gomes to beat as he turned a defender.

9:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Can has a shot blocked on a Pool break. Pool must be taking the lead sooner rather than later

9:37 AM

Milner with a shot easily saved by Gomes.

9:38 AM

The Tangerines go two up vs Kidderminster while Barrow tie it up at Taunton Town.

OH!!!! Firmino shoots wide with just Gomes to beat off a nice pass from Coutinho. Again, all Brazis
