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!

European Wrap-Up

It's been a very busy week at work here in WNY, so I haven't had a lot of time to tune in to the European action. So, I thought I'd take a moment to catch up with all the action.

On Tuesday, Citeh traded 8 goals with Monaco in a thrilling 5-3 win that still leaves a lot to be sorted out in the second leg in the principality. Meanwhile, Atletico turned Leverkusen over 2-4, leaving that tie just about sorted.

On Wednesday, Jamie Vardy's late goal has left Leicester with a fighting chance against Sevilla in the second leg at the KP. They'll go into that one 1-2 down. Meanwhile, Juve scored two away goals at Porto that will make it difficult for the Portugeezers to get back into the tie.

Meanwhile, in the Europa League, United notched a very creditable away win at St. Etienne. They should be safely into the quarters on the basis of that. All in all, not a bad week for the English.

Your thoughts about it all, gentlemen?

Hi Bob
United's 1-0 win France was the second leg. United won 4-0 on aggregate
Today, Spurs blew it again at Wembley having Desmond staying for good. They played most of the match with ten men after the numpty Dele Alli got a red for an horrific challenge..

And Claudio gets the boot at the Champs.... Not fair in my book

My apologies, mate - I had forgot about that first leg win last week. Well done, you lot. Into the Quarters!

I agree with you about Ranieri. It would be one thing if they'd really gotten turned over by Sevilla. But 2-1!? They were still in it!

I thought it was harsh on Claudio After a creditable performance in Seville, but in all honesty I saw this coming after a poor run of form sees them fighting relegation a year after winning the Premier League and admitting that he's given players too many chances.

Delighted about United eliminating St. Etienne. United , however, progress only to the round of sixteen. Still a ways to go in this marathon competition.
