Jingle Bells, ManYoo Smells....

Tottenham ran away, oh what fun it is to see Leeds win away on Boxing Day - ay! A very happy holiday period to all of you LOBers out there. I'm here at the crack of dawn to enjoy a full day of the good stuff. We start fairly modestly with Watford v. Palace. Then we've got the usual spurt of matches at 10am, including my beloved Leeds United away at PNE. Then we end up with Citeh away to Hull at the end of the day. Join me for all the festive fun, won't you?

Watford appear to have nicked Everton's "Z Cars" routine - the teams are coming out of the tunnel at Vicarage Road:

Watford: Gomes, Kaboul, Prodl, Britos, Janmaat, Behrami, Guedioura, Holebas, Amrabat, Capoue, Ighalo.
Subs: Deeney, Cathcart, Doucoure, Zuniga, Sinclair, Kabasele, Pantilimon.

Crystal Palace: Hennessey, Kelly, Dann, Delaney, Ward, Flamini, Cabaye, Zaha, Puncheon, Townsend, Christian Benteke.
Subs: Speroni, Campbell, Lee, Fryers, Mutch, Husin, Wan Bissaka.

Referee: Mark Clattenburg (Tyne & Wear)

Blogger The Blue Devil said...

It's a new era for Palace today, with Pardew sacked on Christmas Eve and Fat Sam Allardyce back from the wilderness at the helm.

7:28 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Stat of the day: Mark Clattenburg is our referee today, which is not great news for Palace. Since their promotion back to the Premier League in 2013, Palace have failed to win – and lost seven – any of the 10 Premier League matches he has overseen.

7:29 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Peter Drury and Clive Allen on the microphones this afternoon, as we get set to kick off. Both sides in their traditional kits at Vicarage Road.

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

Early corner for the away side. Collected by Gomez.

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

Amarabat appears to have crocked himself tackling Zaha. He'll need to come off.

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

Sorry, that's Daryl Janmaat who's coming off. Juan Zuniga is getting prepared to replace him. Only 18 seconds into the match.

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

Close call there, Zaha going down just outside the box. Cabaye to swing a dangerous one in here.

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

Cabaye tried a shot and it deflected out for a corner.

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

Puncheon swings in the corner and Gomez punches clear.

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

Zaha is having a field day. Zuniga simply can’t live with him, although in fairness the subsitute isn’t getting much help from his team-mates, which is badly needed.

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

Townsend tries a speculative one from distance.

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

Now Behrami is hobbling off. Walter Mazzari's game plan has been completely upended here. We're only 13 minutes in and Troy Deeney is having to come on for the defender.

7:43 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

So now we've got a 4-4-2 with Deeney up alongside Ighalo. That's what we wanted to see from the off but injuries have had to force the Italian's hand about it.

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

End to end stuff now.

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

Oh - Townsend stands up a cross but Benteke couldn't direct the header past Gomez. Good chance there for the Belgian.

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

And now Watford have their first corner.

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

Troy Deeney has been stuck on 99 goals for Watford for 10 matches now.

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

Already Watford looking a better team for the presence of Deeney, who flicks a delightful first touch into the path of Ighalo, who thus far, hasn’t had a kick.

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

Some wag on the Guardian blog has commented: "“What is going on with the Big Fat Man’s shave?” emails Harry Carl Pocock. “His face is cut to ribbons. He may need the services of a professional, or at least to remember to turn the light on.”

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

Oh - Cabaye shoots just wide there after Benteke's effort against Prodl had run to him.

7:55 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Cabaye scores after a lovely move. Palace are well worth it!!!

7:55 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Townsend did well there to turn his man run into space and then play Cabaye in. Cabaye ran on to the ball and swept it past Gomez into the corner. Great goal!

0-1 Fat Sam's Palace.

7:56 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'm not sure that any other Premiership team throws caution to the wind with a front line like Townsend, Cabaye, Benteke and Zaha. Crikey!

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

That goal will pull Palace above West Ham into 14th.

8:01 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Palace have a penalty!

Benteke latches on to a sloppy backpass from Zuniga and Gomez upends him.

8:06 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Benteke to take....

Oh - terrible penalty there. Stroked it straight at Gomez. That was horrible.

Still 0-1

8:07 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

An eventful first half is coming to an end here. Still poised for some more action in the second half.

8:12 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That penalty save has lifted Watford. You wouldn’t put it past them getting an equaliser before half-time.

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

Benteke has run out of warnings and he goes into Mark Clattenberg's book.

Now Jason Puncheon has gone into the book. So this half is not ending quite as well for Fat Sam as it began.

Yes, please - two wins for our sides today.

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

Fifty minutes on the clock now - surely time is up. And is.

A really good first half, with most of the attacking from Palace. Watford have had two defenders off for injuries.

And the Watford DJ nicely plays a bit of George Michael. RIP.

Watford have come out looking for the equalizer. Fat Sam will be playing for the clean sheet.

Fred is napping. He must be dreaming if he thinks Moyes will make a successful return to OT.

8:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fat Sam thinks that defending a 1-0 lead is the easiest thing in football. I heard he's giving the Hornets players a lump of coal after the match

8:47 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Ighalo was nearly in there on the turn. Wide of the mark.

8:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!! Route One footie from the Hornets as the ball eluded Deeney and Ighalo shot wide from a narrow angle.

8:49 AM

I'm sure Bob would be elated if Leeds win at Scrooge's place where a lump of coal is considered a bonus .

No footie gifts. It's been an unusual holiday period because Elizabeth's mother was in the hospital.

Oh what a bummer about the lousy cover
BUT... I bet you it's a quality book by a quality player


I did get a Man U cover for my laptop but that's it
Tom got a United shirt that they wear on the sidelines before coming on. A United jacket and sweatshirt. Matt got a Dortmund shirt and Salford City shirt too

8:56 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

This is very quickly descending into an ugly, scrappy game, which is just how Fat Sam likes it.

8:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Is the early match because it's the marquee match? This match was not a top flight fixture until last season and not a second division fixture until 1981.

8:58 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Matt let himself down a bit on the presents. Golf's not very popular round here.

8:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bob's bruv has a wicked sense of humor. Right player , wrong jersey?

Blogger United We Stand said...

Why do keepers guess? If the keeper reacted to the kick he would have saved it! Keepers shouldn't guess. React like you do for every other shot during the match. If it is a good enough pen its going to beat you. If not, you can save it... you can't if you dive out of the way

Zaha goes on a solo run and is barged by Prodl as he wins a Palace free kick

Peter Drury , the announcer, is a Watford fan. I didn't notice him hiding his excitement when Deeney scored.

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

Drury did seem excited about that Deeney ton, running through the other players who'd done it.

9:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Based on the intensity of the chomping, I expect Fat Sam to hurl objects across the room when this match ends,.

9:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

He was on the Watford FC show that is broad cast on NBCSN. He claims he is neutral when he announces Watford matches, but I didn't notice that during the equalizer.

9:10 AM

A positive change from Fat Sam as Frazier Campbell is on for Flamini. A n extra striker as Fat Sam is going for the win.

That's it as it finishes 1-1 . I'm not sure how Fat Sam will feel about the result, but Palace let yet another lead slip due to more stupidity.

9:25 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

So - Fat Sam gets a point on his debut for Palace. Many drab draws to come, I suspect. They've got a lot of attacking power from the Pardew era but Sam will no doubt load up the side with niggly foulers.

Sunderland have looked the more dangerous
This is going to be another pisspoor home performance
We could be top if we beat Burnley, Stoke, Arsenal and West Ham


Cambridge take the lead...they are in the playoffs

I know it's Boxing Day, but already our third phone call of the morning from a charitable organization. More than United shots on goal.

They showed a replay of that Hammers goal. A really soft one to concede as the Swans have regularly done while Bradley has been in charge.

At least it's not Diego "Bloody" Costa with the goal - he's suspended today. Pedro has notched it.
