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!

Bob Bradley Walks the Plank!

It's been a gloomy old Christmas period for Premiership managers at the bottom of the table. First, Alan Pardew received a lump of coal in his stocking from Father Christmas, getting the sack on Christmas Eve in order to be replaced by Sam Allardyce by Palace's Boxing Day fixture. Now, news today that our Bob, Bob Bradley that is, has been shown the door by the Board of Directors at Swansea City. Fair enough, Bob has overseen the club's fortunes during a time in which he's only notched one win, two draws and seven losses and seen the club fall from 17th to 19th. I feel bad for Bob but, given what's happened to people in 2016, he should count himself lucky that he didn't get run over by a bus on the way out of the Liberty Stadium. Your thoughts on Bob Bradley's future, gents?

Surely this one was coming. When he was appointed the first thought that came to mind is " I don't get it." He lacked the qualifications for the job. It was a recipe for disaster as the Swans looked really clueless in most of his matches in charge.This was the time to sack him with half the season remaining and plenty of time to rectify the situation. The Swans are only a few points from safety , so there are plenty of matches remaining . The two Robbies mentioned Chris Coleman for the position and as far as I am concerned he certainly cuts the mustard as being the ideal candidate for the position. Also, the wrong bald Bob was chosen for the position. That should have been our Bob. No wonder why the Yank walked the plank.

Thanks for the shout-out, mate. I often do think that I could manage a Premier League side. It's easy. 4-5-1 formation. Two defensive middies, one up top. Wait until the 60th minute to make any changes. Like for like subs. Easy as piss.
