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!

Another Season Comes to an End


I always hated this day growing up. Footer was done for the whole summer. We had the Cup Final to look forward to and I always liked watching all the Test Matches but it wasn't the same. My Shoot and Match magazines were still there to read but no tables to look at.
Not much last day excitement to look forward to unlike 1999 and 2012. Pretty much everything is done and dusted except for the Champions League spots... sounds exciting.. except it looks all done there too. The two favorites, City and Pool, have very very winnable games against Watford and Bore respectively ....surely they won't give Arsenal a sniff
My lot have given up on the league long ago.. I HATE THAT! We will be playing a lot of no hopers for the Final... will United get a win at the Theater of Draws to end the season?
Will Kane win the Golden Boot after his four midweek?
Still some questions to answer!
NBC is fantastic showing all of the games... which one shall I watch? Which one will you watch?

Good morning, Bob. I'm going to watch two matches on the telly, one on the computer, and one on Elizabeth's phone.

They will be : United vs Palace, Gunners vs Toffees, Foxes vs Cherries, and the Tigers vs the Spuds

9:07 AM

Correct, UWS, but yours is much more professional and more legible.

Coverage is on NBC Sports Network now - presumably no coverage until kick off on the others.

Morning, MUR - it sounds as if you've given up on the Champions League race assuming that Liverpool will beat Boro.

Of course, United will #1 no matter how much they have infuriated me this season

9:11 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

As it stands, MUR, Someone Said and Simon are set to pick up six points for Harry Kane's Golden Boot. He's on 26 goals, as contrasted with Romelu Lukaku's 24 goals.

I have to have a look at Karl's hair. I have only just joined the show. I was watching the Premier League Download trip back to England that I had taped
Very entertaining

9:15 AM

Will that change the PPP scenarios you sent earlier?

With what you sent before, If United win the EL and Nocito would win the Shield

Bob, what are Steve's thoughts on Arsenal?
What camp is he in? Wenger Out or In Wenger We Trust?

If he's in the first one, does he want the Gunners to make Top Four?
Win the Cup?

Surely he wants them to get both even if he's in Wenger Out club

9:34 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I believe that the Nocitos need more than one win - they need a combination of FA Cup and Europa League.

9:34 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Is it Wayne playing his last match for United

9:37 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

But... Tom and I have the opposite results for the Cup Final so one of us is guaranteed to get the Cup Final points AND then the EL

9:38 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Steve's a Wenger Out guy - has been for at least a couple of seasons. He still wants Arsenal to win things this season but he'd like to see Arsene retire or moved upstairs to a Director of Football kind of role. He's not settled on a replacement, though.

9:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Back from walkies and glad to be inside on a summer like morning.

9:42 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That's right - if one or the other of you get the FA Cup win and EL win, you'll get the Shield. But one without the other won't be enough to make up the 9-11 points.

9:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I told Elizabeth that the Claret and sky blue derby is on Oxygen because you need oxygen to get through that match.

9:43 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Nice one, mate!

9:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

If the Gunners win the Cup then I think I will pip one of the Nocitos by a point and the other by two points. Is that correct?

9:45 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Just finished a bang up pancake breakfast courtesy of Kate. A nice treat on "Championship Sunday."

9:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Cheer, mate. I'm sure you're still reeling from the Evil Lions winning the L1 playoff Final 1-0 with Steve Bleedin' Morison getting the winner in the 85th minute. The last thing you wanted was the Evil Blades and Evil Lions added to the Championship!

9:46 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

So, a United win in the EL and a Nocito will win?

9:50 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

By my calculations, if everything stayed the same as it is today but Arsenal won the FA Cup and United won the Europa League, MUR would have 45 points and UWS would have 41 points. If Chelsea win the Cup and United win the EL, then Red Dragon would win the Shield with 40 points. If Chelsea win and Ajax win the EL, then the Shield goes to Red Devil on 39 points.

9:52 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

MUR also needs Harry Kane to win the GBB; you'd like to see Romelu Lukaku get crocked early doors today.

Great team goal as a poor clearance from Tom Davies resulted in a pass from Ozil that Wellie back heeled and Bellerin smashed in from two yards out

of course, I'm watching United not trying

10:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree with Davie Prutton that the Tigers defense failed to deal with the Spuds. Similar to the last two Harry scored at the KC from just outside the box off a pass from Eriksen that started with the high press.

Koz is sportingly seeing if Valencia is okay now, but he'll need to walk in a moment.

10:15 AM

nice pass by Pogpants

Just wide by Harry Kane as he nearly had a hat-trick

10:15 AM

Well, that's the GBB done and dusted. Kane on 28 goals now. The Chunk would need five goals against Arsenal now.

Blogger United We Stand said...

Is Coz out of the Cup Final?

Wow - that should have been a second red card there for Xhaka Khan there as he pulled back Valencia. They'll need to settle down now.

10:17 AM

Young Josh Harrop looked like a veteran with that cut in and superb finish. Superb long pass by Pogs with the outside of the foot. Where was that all season?

Why is Barkley coming on so early for Davies?

10:25 AM

How did Palace not score there!

A decent corner(will wonders never cease) right inside six... eludes everyone

Thanks, MUR - that's what I thought.

10:26 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Who is on top at the Em?

10:26 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Barkley on for young Tom Davies, who made the defensive error that led to the Gunners goal. An early substitution

10:26 AM

GOAL! Alexis scores the second - was Welly not offside?

10:27 AM

Hammers tie it up in the battle of claret and blues

10:29 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Looking at the replay , I thought Wellie looked level when he got the ball off the blocked shot, then passed for Alexis for an easy tap in. Great twenty pass move off a Toffees corner.

10:30 AM

John Terry has gone off injured with the whole Chelsea side giving him an honor guard off the pitch. Is this his last appearance for the Blues?

10:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

If Pool fail to defeat Boro then they don't deserve to be in the CL. Still a lot of footie to play.

10:34 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Yes - the Arsenal position adds or subtracts a point to several players. But the main event is the two cup finals.

10:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I would think so. JT is not up to the pace of the Prem any longer. MLS would be a great choice for him.

10:35 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

If Arsenal were to finish fourth and win the Cup - successful season for them?

Similarly, if United win the Europa, qualify for the CL and have also won the League Cup - successful season for Mou and co.?

10:35 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

John Terry was substituted at the 26th minute mark...his shirt number!

How gaff

Garth Crooks isn't a fan


I don't know what to make of it, quite frankly.

This isn't Hollywood, it's a Premier League fixture. I'm a bit bemused, this has been set up. I'm uncomfortable with it.

It's a guard of honour in the middle of a game.

Gabriel and Valencia in trouble now. Gabby will pick up a yellow. Mertesacker warming up.

Gabriel down for the Gunners and Valencia for the Toffees. Gabriel will be booked once he gets up for that terrible challenge.

This doesn't look good at all for Arsenal Cup's chances. One center back will be suspended and the other is now being stretchered off. Per Mertesacker hasn't played all season!!

Courtois does well to save a header from Rodwell off a Black Cats corner.

He is probably not going to make it
Only one sub left.. Rooney won't be able to replaced for a farewell
He is walking off

Jose wasn't very nice to that youngster

Now Ashley Williams is in trouble with Michael Oliver. Should be a second yellow. Everton players surrounding the ref. No card! Ridiculous!

Really poor form from Michael Oliver. He at first summoned Williams over. The player never came, others did. He bottled it.

OH!!! Nearly a hat-trick for Aguero. He shoots wide in the six yard box with just Gomes Addams to beat. The Little Neviller was not impressed.
