Snowed in with the Football

We've had a very snowy week here in WNY, so what better than to bunker in at The Cottage and enjoy a morning of the Premier League's best. We start early with Watford v. Everton. That's followed by the 10am EST kickoffs, including Arsenal hosting their nemeses Stoke City. And we end the day with underperforming champions Leicester City taking on troubled Manchester City. Should be fascinating. Grab yourself some brekkies and join me, won't you?

Morning. We start with Watford v. Everton at Vicarage Road. Both teams aren’t quite replicating their 1980s golden age, but they are in relatively rude health: Watford are enjoying a second consecutive season in the top flight for the first time since the days when The A-Team was primetime television, and Everton have been the best of the rest for much of the past 15 years.

7:23 AM

Teams are out on the pitch at Vicarage Road now:

Watford (4-3-3) Gomes; Zuniga, Prodl, Britos, Holebas; Guedioura, Behrami, Capou; Amrabat, Deeney, Okaka.
Substitutes: Pantilimon, Kabasele, Janmaat, Watson, Success, Sinclair, Ighalo.

Everton (4-3-3) Stekelenburg; Coleman, Williams, Funes Mori, Baines; Gueye, Barry, McCarthy; Deulofeu, Lukaku, Mirallas.
Substitutes: Joel, Jagielka, Holgate, Cleverley, Barkley, Lennon, Valencia.

Good morning, Bob. I'm here to join you on a dreary Lakenheath type morning. We got our first dose of this type of weather on Thursday, but it's supposed to warm up today and by tomorrow normal service resumed.

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

Everton start in their typical 8th position in the Premier League, just about out of European slots as usual. Watford are mid-table in 11th. But the Hornets could leapfrog the Toffees with a win, which is a distinct possibility.

7:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Not exactly a marquee match to start the morning, but it could be an interesting contest

7:34 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Morning, MUR - I'm sorry to hear that you're facing some effects from Winter Storm Caly. We had half of foot of the white stuff on Thursday and Friday and another foot overnight. But our car and we are tucked in nice and cozy for the weekend.

7:34 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Not exactly, but some interesting implications. Koeman is certainly under pressure after that loss to you lot last weekend.

7:35 AM

Prodl clears am awkward cross from Deulofeu after initially failing to deal with it.

7:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

WOW!!!! A real blizzard. I'm sorry to hear about your weather. Hopefully you and Kate don't get any more of the white stuff. AT least . I finally had a chance to get completely under the covers and not fell stuffiness in the house.

7:38 AM

We're used to it by now, mate. But thanks for your thoughts. The missus is all tucked up in bed enjoying a lie in and I can think of nothing better on a winter morning than watching the Premier League with a cuppa at my side and a chat with you.

My Facebook feed is overflowing with news that Putin was actively involved in interfering with the Presidential Election here. Your thoughts?

Glad to be on board with you. A great way to spend Saturday morning.

GOAL! The Chunk surges through onto a Gareth Barry ball and thunders home past Gomez.

1-0 Everton!

7:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I was nonstop yesterday because Melanie had a concert shortly after a long day of work and I had to run errands in between. I will check today. I do get the impression that it is a real possibility. I don't know if it's to the extent that it would have changed the outcome of the election, but it's interesting that Putin was sop keen for Trump to win the election. Also, anyone that criticizes somehow gets harassing phone calls their facebook account hacked into for a long time. How did he have that access before he became President?

7:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I will need to check that after typing that lengthy comment.

7:48 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

As it stands, Lukaku is on 8 goals in the Premiership. If the Watford defense is going to be that generous today, The Chunk may hoping to fill his boots and make up some territory with those at the top of the scoring charts.

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

Good questions, MUR. Good questions.

7:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A surprisingly simple goal. It started with a long goal kick from Stecks. After several Toffees passes, our beloved Max Britos, who is not a Brit. was caught out by a long ball from Gareth Barry and the Chunk tucked it past Gomes Addams.

7:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Cheers, mate. Also, the most puns ever to describe a goal?

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

Troy Deeney has been stuck on 99 goals for Watford for some weeks now. He won't be getting his ton with that kind of service from Britos. Straight to Stekelenberg.

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

Thanks, mate. You're the Pun Master; I'm merely a pretender.

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

Ah - Deeney had a real chance there but couldn't quite control the ball in from Amarabat.

7:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Not at all, mate. We're a deadly duo.

7:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

So, a Chunk could be taken out of the goal scoring lead.

7:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

If the Hornets win a penalty then surely he will get his ton. I presume we're talking goals and not his weight.

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

You could definitely say that, mate. He's only three behind the two leaders, Costa and Sanchez.

7:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A battle of the big boys as Ashley Williams tries to climb on Troy Deeney. I don't recommend that of you're trying to get an autograph, which I'm not.

Groans from the Hornets faithful as Holebas wastes a free kick.

Did you watch you're beloved Leeds yesterday ?

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

Both of these sides could use an injection of youth throughout the side.

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

No - I was at work following it. Predictable end, I'm afraid. Brighton are the better side at present. They went top of the Championship as the result. I expect them to be promoted. We'll see how far we tumble when the other sides play at 10am.

8:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sorry, mate, but you are probably correct about Chris Hughton's Seagulls.

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

Watford enjoying some possession now, but not really doing much with it.

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

We've got another tough one on Tuesday - hosting Reading. So we could be brought back to reality with a bump by the end of the week.

8:03 AM

Same with us in the Cup, mate. I think you can ride to a win vs the Railroaders.

8:04 AM

GOAL !!!! OKAKA MAKES THE TOFFEES FELL LIKE CACA.

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

GOAL! Watford are level with a sensational finish from Okaka!

1-1!

8:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Just like the Toffees , it was too simple a goal by the Hornets. A long ball by Max Britos was headed down by Troy Deeney as he outjumped Ashley Williams in the land of the giants. Okaka played Amarbat down the right and his cross was cheekily back heeled by Okaka past stecks.

8:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The score would indicate that it's been a really entertaining half, but the goals have come from defensive miscues rather than any moments of inventiveness.

8:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Do you and Kate go on vacation soon? I start next weekend, which will make next Saturday a Happy Birthday providing United win the late one at the Hawthorns.

8:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Troy Deeney just fails to make contact at the far post off a great cross from Guediora that surely would have given the Hornets the lead.

8:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

An unusual clearance from Gomes that came off his own player that looked more like something that Gomes Addams would have done.

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

Everton needs half time here, and not just because of the strikingly high quality of the Vicarage Road Gatorade.

8:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Two minutes of stoppage time/.

8:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. An accurate assessment of the half.

8:15 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Yes - we're finishing the semester this next week with Finals. Looking forward to a break, for sure.

8:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's 1-1 at the end of competitive if not entertaining first half.

8:17 AM

A delay to the start of the second half as Behrami is down . Was he injured warming up or is he feeling ill? He's being a trooper and staying on the pitch, The second half is underway

8:33 AM

I'm back with a bagel and banana for the second half.

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

I agree with the Little Neviller. I don't understand why Koeman hasn't built his team around Ross Barkley. The boy is quality.

8:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Well done, mate. A great way to begin the second half.

8:37 AM

I think he wants to get some players that play his style of football and get rid of some of the older players. I see his point of view.

Nasty foul from behind by Cholevas on Deulofeu

A careless foul by Gareth Barry on Zuniga.

8:45 AM

Now Capoue is the victim of a similar challenge, this time by Deulofeu

8:46 AM

GOAL! Prodl fires Watford into the lead with a towering header from a free kick.

2-!

8:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!!! THIS TIME PRODL HEADS IN THE FREE KICK AS IT WAS TAKEN BY CHOLEVAS ON THE LEFT. THE TOFFEES WERE PUNISHED FOR CONCEDING A SERIES OF SILLY FREE KICKS. THE HORNETS HAVE COME FROM BEHIND TO LEAD 2-1.

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

Fat Ron won't be happy with that defending from the free kick. Or that the free kick was given up in the first place.

8:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Janmaat is on for Geuidioura. A slightly more defensive as the Hornets try to hold on to their lead.

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

Baines and Amrabat collide as they jump for a high ball, with both ending up on the floor. Baines is booked.

8:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Hornets fans want Baines to be punished for an alleged elbow on Amrabat as both are down. Hard to say based on the replay

8:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A free kick and Stecks does well to turn around a header from MAx Britos on the free kick

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

Oh - Britos is free at the back stick and only Stekelenberg can keep him out. The Toffees back line is all over the map.

GOAL! And now Watford have scored a third! Okaka again!

8:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!!! ANOTHER SET PIECE FROM CHOLEVAS, THIS TIME FROM THE CORNER HE TOOK. OKAKA HEADED THE CORNER JUST OVER THE LINE AS IT WAS NOT CLEARED IN TIME. THE HORNETS LEAD 3-1/.

8:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Okaka has scored his first two Prem goals in this match as Barkley has been brought on. Too little too late?

8:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Troy Deeney fouled Ashley Williams , but the free kick from Cholevas was headed away this time.

8:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Enner Valencia is on for Mirallis as the Toffees are now playing with two strikers and in desperate need of goals.

8:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Colevas picks up a really stupid booking for time wasting off a throw.

9:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

According to Jon Champion, Boy George was top of the pops the last time the Hornets defeated the Toffees.A lot of water has passed under the bridge since then

9:04 AM

Better from the Toffees as Enner Valencia wins a corner off passes from Barkley and Gareth Barry.

9:05 AM

The Toffees clear the corner then Amrabat fouls McCArthy.

Barkley should make a difference - he's over a free kick now.

Gomes Addams punches away the free kick from Barkley

9:06 AM

Jon Champion says that Okaka is having a day of days. What is that, mate?

9:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ben Watson is on for two goal hero, Okaka, who gets a deserved standing ovation. Time for the Hornets to shut up shop.

9:08 AM

Nice round of applause now for a Watford super fan who died on the way back from a match yesterday.

I did not realize that Okaka had a brief spell on loan at Bob and Kate's about seven years ago. That was before you and Kate moved in.

9:14 AM

That's a perfect example of the type of crossing that occurs in the LUFC Academy. Correct, mate?

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

I am delighted - that's The Chunk up to 9 goals now - breathing down hard on the top two.

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

Actually, I've been a frequent critic of Lennon's crossing. I often find that he gets into good positions but his final ball can be poor. That was a rare example of a fine delivery from him.

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

This is a lively end to the match now, with Everton really pouring it on.

9:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Gomes Addams struggles to push away a cross from the Chunk as the Toffees push for a late equalizer.

9:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Capoue fouls Enner Valencia a few yards behind the D. A great position for the Toffees. Four minutes of stoppage time as Barkley curls the free kick straight to Gomes Addams.

9:18 AM

A time wasting substitution as Kabasele is on for Zuniga.

9:20 AM

Silly boy - Valencia handles the ball, interrupting that last chance for Everton to equalize.

The Toffees have a really late free kick.

That's it - a big win for the Hornets lifting them over Everton into 7th - nosebleed territory for them.

9:23 AM

Gomes Addams punches away the free kick then it's hoofed away as it's over and the Hornets hold on to defeat the Toffees for the first time since 1987 as it ends 3-2.

Back on the Emirates now - a draw here would allow Chelski to build their lead and for Liverpool to leapfrog them into second when they play tomorrow.

The Tigers should be a man down instead of a goal up thanks to a dive by former Leeds and Canaries player, Snoddy

Jeff is sick as a parrot as Cambridge United - Leeds' opponents in the 3rd round of the Cup - have taken the lead against Hartlepool.

The goal came straight from the possession after Pieters was down with a dead leg. Alexis lofted the ball into the box as Ozil got behind the Potters defense and made Lee Grant look more like Lou Grant as he headed in as grant was well off his line. it was a free header.

After having earned a pen in the first half, Snoddy has given away one in the second. Palace have a chance to to equalize. And do!

1-1!
