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!

Saturday, January 21, 2017

Saturday's Here Again!

It's been a long, long first week of the semester for me, so I can't wait to put up my feet with a cuppa by my side and several hours of footer on the telly. It's a good line-up, too. Liverpool v. Swansea right off the bat. Can the Swans bounce back or will it be a Reds clinic? Then we've got the usual 10am EST kickoff array, including ManYoo at Stoke. At 12:30, we'll need a split screen to catch Man Citeh v. Spurs and my beloved Leeds at Barnsley. Get comfy - it's going to be a good 'un. Join me!

Good morning. I'm up for Liverpool vs Swan Dive.

7:28 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They're off from Anfield where the Swans have never won, but desperately need one

7:31 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The first chance of the match as Emre Can Not find the target , heading over a great cross from Hendo as Pool were stroking the ball around

7:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fernandez heads out a cross for the first corner of the match off another long possession.. Pool keep possession off the corner.

7:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Lallana with a really horrible cross as Pool won the ball deep in their own half and went on a great counter.

7:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Another Pool as Fimrino turned Alfie Mowson off a pass from Clyne, but Lallana volleyed well over.,

7:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Paul Clement must feel like he's at the beach dealing with a Red Tide.

7:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A rare Swansea attack and Tom Carrol has pass come off of Loeveren and off the Side of the post for a corner that is taken by Siggy and headed away. Minnie was fooled by the deflection.

7:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Not a Fer challenge as Pool win a free kick.

7:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Back from the bog to discover that I did NOT miss a goal. Oh yah, I don't suffer from that curse.

7:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Firmino has a shot blocked for a corner by Alfie Mowson off a tackle by Coutinho. The corner from Milner was headed out by Llorente.

8:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Klavan is booked for fouling new signing, Martin Olsson, on a counter as he went on a solo run from a tackle he won.

8:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The free kick from Siggy was just too long for Mowson and he shot harmlessly out of play.

8:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Hendo has had a really poor first half as he's continuously passed to a white shirt.

8:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Firmino heads well wide off a cross from Lallana after Pool won the ball in midfield.

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

My apologies for the late start, mate. I overslept my alarm after a late night date night with the missus. Thanks for getting us started this morning. I'm enjoying your comments.

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

It seems like from your comments that Liverpool have been making heavy weather of this unusually compact Swansea defense. We saw a hint of that last week at the Liberty against the Arsenal.

8:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A minute if stoppage time.

8:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning, Bob. Great to have you on board. Glad to help out. You are correct on your assessment as it's 0-0 at the half.

8:17 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

A poor Liverpool first half comes to an end. Klopp's Liverpool attack have been thoroughly frustrated by Clements' Swansea defense.

8:17 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Morning boys,
Glad I slept in for a goalless half...Im here for the second half

8:18 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning, UWS. You and Bob did well to sleep in late. Now that we are on board, it will hopefully be a more entertaining second half.

8:20 AM

Blogger manunitedrules said...

it's the dreaded box as Robbie Earle uses the Box Theory to describe why Pool are struggling to break them down

8:31 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Liverpool need a draw or win to reclaim the second spot from Spurs. Swansea are about to get us underway.

8:31 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The second half is underway.

8:32 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'd like to stick Robbie in a box and mail him to the North Pole!

8:32 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

We are off the second half

No shot on target by Pool?

8:32 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The diagram from Robbie Earle reminded of the times I have taught hyperbolas . The box is Swansea and the hyperbola is the way Liverpool have been attempting to attack the Swans.

8:33 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

There is too much made up talk about tactics these days

Just get the ball forward, get the ball in the box, shoot the ball

8:33 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

YES!!!!!!!!!!!

SWANSEA TAKE THE LEAD!!

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

GOAL! My goodness! On their first attack, Fernando Llorente has scored!!!

8:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Loveren heads out a cross from Fer for a corner and
GOAL!!!! LLORENTE WITH A SMASH AND GRAB EFFORT . FERNANDEZ HEADED DOWN THE DEEP CORER FROM SIGGY. POOL HESITATED AND FER PASSDED TO LLORENTE , WHO SMASHED HOME FROM CLOSE RANGE

8:35 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

He toe poked it thru his teammate's legs

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

Routine corner in and the Liverpool backline, especially Lovren really make a meal of clearing it. It drops fortuitously to the Spaniard who sticks it away. Is that his first goal for the Swans? It might be!

0-1!

8:35 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think that was the first shot on target by either team.

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

Morning, UWS - how are you, mate?

8:36 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Problem is we are talking modern day football
Swansea will now just sit back and try and hold on... and fail because they stop playing

8:36 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The gangs all here now and UWS and I brought an early goal which should open this one up.

8:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The closest either team came to scoring in the first half was when a cross by Tom Carroll deflected off of Loveren off the side of the post. Otherwise, both teams didn't have their shooting boots on.

8:37 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Im ok Bob..another long week at school
Interest BOE meeting this wee in Schenectady. Teachers stood up and talked about the schools being unsafe, the way teachers are treated and there being no consequences... I hope things change

8:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Another poor Pool pass that is representative of Pool's play in the first half.

8:38 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Bloody hell! Llorente has done it again!

8:39 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Oh my giddy aunt

TWO NIL


LOOK WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU PUT IN. A GREAT CROSS

8:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!!! BLOODY HELL!!! LLORENTE AT THE DOUBLE AS HE SCORES HIS AND SWANSEA'S SECOND OF THE MATCH TO PUT POOL TWO UP.

8:39 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Nothing fortunate about that one - a superb move from the Swans out wide right, great ball in and a towering, crashing center forward's header from the Spaniard.

0-2!

8:40 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Swansea..keep attacking

8:40 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Liverpool are really up against it now. This could be a turning point in their season - and Swansea's. This will totally open up the relegation race again if this result holds up.

8:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I guess that moves the Swans out of the drop zone.

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

I agree, UWS, but I don't expect them too.

8:41 AM

GOAL! Firmino has got one back for the Reds!

GOAL !!!! FIRMINO PULLS ONE BACK FOR THE REDS./

8:41 AM

Bugger... that goal came too early

Boy we have made a difference for this half

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

Carbon copy on the end other from Liverpool. Great ball over from LUFC Academy and Firmino crushed the header.

1-2 Game on!

8:42 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Why couldn't they have held on for a bit longer... a 3-2 Liverpool win here coming up

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

We certainly did. Apologies to the punters at Anfield for sleeping in past the alarm.

8:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sturridge is on for Coutinho

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

Sturridge on now to replace Coutinho. This could get interesting.

8:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Absolutely , Bob and Dave. I always figured that a complete trio would result in goals.

8:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Hendo has a long range effort easily saved by Flappy.

8:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sturridge was really horrible in the Cup replay at Argyle Sweater. Klopp will be hoping for better today

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

Klavan might be in trouble here - he's already on a yellow card. Routine obstruction I would say. Still....

8:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A poor foul by Klaven on Llorente. He's already been booked . Will that be his second yellow?

8:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree, Bob. He's got away with highway robbery.

8:47 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Ref have bottled that
Didn't call anything because it would have been a second yellow

8:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bob will be pleased about that great cross from Milner. The second Swansea goal came as the Swans won a tackle in their own box. Clyne was caught out of position as the two new boys combined . Martin Olsson put Tom Carroll down the left and his great cross was headed in by Llorente.

8:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Interesting comment about the schools. I will be retiring in tow years, so I don'y know if I will notice the effect. I hope things do improve, but based on what I've heard, not much will change in Texas and I've done okay so far. It may be more noticeable in the blue states and even then may not be noticed for at least three to four years.

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

Bloody hell - Swansea would leap from bottom to 17th and clear of the relegation zone with this result. What a turnaround! Palace supporters will be praying for another Liverpool goal.

8:52 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I always hope for change in schools, too. I'm not confident about the leadership out of Washington, though, after watching Betsy DeVos' hearing. She knows nothing of what we do.

8:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Also, Be wary of a new movement called schools of innovation or something of that type. Do NOT approve that. It calls for school districts to get exemptions from the law . Some are okay, but some such as messing with the school calendar and control over teacher contracts mean a district could make teachers at will employees, pending school board approval.

8:53 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

QPR still leading Fulham 1-0... good news for our Bob

8:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

She mentioned that she wants more choices such as magnet and charter schools, but we already have that, so how will that change things here? I have taught at a magnet school the past eighteen years. It doesn't sound like too much will change. I expect her to delegate most of the responsibility.

8:55 AM

GOAL! Desmond arrives at Anfield - Firmino again!

8:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!!! DESMOND'S IN THE HOUSE AS FIRMINO SCORES WITH A WELL PLACED VOLLEY.

8:56 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

3-2 here we come

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

Wijnaldum chipped up a lovely little cross but Firmino still had a lot to do to bring it down and then crash it past the keeper. Great goal.

2-2!

8:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Swansea is back to second from bottom as it's tied up. A long possession resulted in a great LUFC Academy pass to Winjaldum and his cross was chested down and well place don the half volley by Firmino past a prostrate Swans defense.

8:59 AM

9:01 AM

and I have to go to the loo

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

A bit fortunate again but the Swans deserve the good fortune for going back up the pitch. Ball deflected to Siggy who made no mistake with it.

2-3 Swansea!

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

You know wha that means, UWS!

9:02 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - that was nearly 3-3 - somehow Swansea clear it for a corner.

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

Still 15 minutes left - this could get to be a cricket score.

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

Oh - Origi turned and shot but Flappy did well again.

9:03 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It all started with a long punt by Flappy. The swans zipped the ball around like we haven't seen in a while. it was one of the new boys as Tom Carroll has his second assist of the day . His pass deflected off a Pool player and was well placed by Siggy.

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

Leroy did a Fer job holding on to the ball there.

I wonnder if that will go down as an OG. That effort from Pieters wasn't going in prior to the deflection.

Great passes from Wee Joe and Arnautovic, bit Stoke got really lucky with that deflection which really did Mata.

Goal there in the Championship, as Reading have taken the lead against Derby, prising the Rams’ defence apart for John Swift to bag one. 1-0 Reading.

Not a good goal for us.
