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!

Farewell, Shite Fart Lane!

We say goodbye today to another classic London stadium - White Hart Lane. I can well remember many a weekend making that long walk down Seven Sisters Road to see Spurs play during the Glenn Hoddle era. We have a fitting final match at the Lane today, with United showing up to pay tribute. Before that, we have the relegation battle of Hull v. Palace and Liverpool's crucial visit to West Ham. Join me for all the fun this morning.

Morning, everyone. I'm joining the early match at the beginning of the second half, having made the executive decision to get a wee bit of extra kip after a long workweek.

Hull are 2-0 down at Palace in a match they must win in order to have any chance of staying up. They need three goals in this second half. Tough ask.

The teams:

Crystal Palace: Hennessey, Ward, Kelly, Tomkins, Schlupp, Cabaye, Milivojevic, Puncheon, Zaha, Christian Benteke, Townsend. Subs: Speroni, Van Aanholt, Flamini, Campbell, McArthur, Sako, Delaney.

Hull: Jakupovic, Maguire, Ranocchia, Dawson, Elmohamady, N’Diaye, Clucas, Robertson, Evandro, Niasse, Grosicki. Subs: Davies, Huddlestone, Elabdellaoui, Maloney, Mbokani, Marshall, Bowen.

Referee: Martin Atkinson.

Zaha and Benteke, the two danger men, with the goals for Palace in the first half.

The hour mark cometh and Hull have used all of their subs. Desperate times for the Yorkshire side.

8:24 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Palace make their first change, taking Cabaye off and bringing McArthur on.

8:27 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Hull are pushing men forward, as they must, but leaving themselves wide open to Palace breakaways. A goal at one end or the other is surely coming.

8:27 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

And Palace nearly score it! Puncheon wins the ball and gives it to Zaha, who hits a lovely, long early cross to Beneteke, who volleys wide!

Townsend hobbles off to be replaced by Van Arnholt.

Inside the final quarter of an hour. Still 2-0 Palace.

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

Oh - McArthur found Benteke really well there but the big striker volleyed it back across goal rather than hitting the target.

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

That's torn it. Schlupp races down the pitch and is brought down by Dawson. Penalty Palace!

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

Milivojevic takes and....

scores! 3-0 Palace!

8:44 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That'll just about do it - Palace are staying up and Hull will be playing us at Elland Road next season.

Not a good year for the Northeast sides - Hull, Boro and Sunderland all dropping out of the Premiership. Newcastle will be going up champions and will be the only Northeast representatives in the Prem next season.

GOAL! Van Arnholt makes it four! Four times the misery for Hull.

8:49 AM

That's it - Palace have won 4-0 and have done themselves and Swansea a huge favor. Hull are officially relegated.

8:53 AM

Next up, West Ham v. Liverpool. The Hammers crushed Spurs' title dreams a couple of weeks back; today they may do the same thing to Liverpool's Champions League dreams.

If Liverpool fail to win today, Arsenal merely have to win their two last home matches - against Sunderland in midweek and against Everton next Sunday to pip them for fourth.

Hey Bob
I am around this morning for some of the matches... Gotta take care of Kathy on this Mother's Day too

Palace relegate Hull so everything is done and dusted in the Premier League except top four places
Liverpool don't win and who'da thunk it... Arsenal have it in the own hands to make Top Four...United just keep blowing their chances!!

Why do United have to close London stadiums? Last season Upton Park. This season White Hart Lane

9:13 AM

Good morning, Bob. I expected a more competitive match than 4-0. All that's remaining to play for is fourth place.

Fonte tackles former Saints teammate, Lallana for a Pool corner.

9:25 AM

Oh - now it's Liverpool with a huge chance. Matip rises to meet Coutinho's corner with an immense header, that bounces down off the turf and hits the underside of the bar and goes out.

9:26 AM

OH!!!! Matip with a header from the corner off the underside of the bar then cleared another Pool corner that is taken by Coutinho again . This one is cleared away

The Premiership only have themselves to blame, having scheduled a lot of marquee matches in odd times. Chelski winning the title on a Friday night was ridiculous!

Short sleeve shirt weather,at least in the southern half of England.Sunny and in the mid 60s. Ideal for watching a match.

9:36 AM

Absolutely agree. I think that's the first time the Prem has been clinched on a Friday night. Even the midweek matches are only meaningful for one team and none tomorrow.

What is your opinion on the Championship playoff results?Sounds like they're both still in the balance and typically cagey affairs

9:45 AM

I sympathize with Marco Silva. I really don't blame him for the Tigers relegation. Mike Phelan left him in a really bad solution and if he had been in charge all season they would have finished mid table.

GOAL !!! STURRIDGE GIVES POOL THE LEAD.

9:50 AM

I am back from walkies.. I don't know what I want to happen here
I don't want Liverpool OR Arsenal to make the top four... which do I want less?

I have no confidence that United will get the nine points up for grabs

Jose will park the bus today... they have not scored an away goal against any of the top six teams... Chelsea 0-4, Spurs TBA, City 0-0, Pool 0-0, Arsenal 0-2


GOAL... POOL TAKE THE LEAD!!

That's the way to round a keeper

Calleri was tackled in the Pool box. Several passes later, a through ball from Coutinho found Sturridge, who beat the offside trap. He easily rounded Adrian to score.

A rare Daniel Sturridge goal for the punters.

9:58 AM

I may do the same. Not sure yet. Ajax finished a point behind their arch rivals and will be forced to a CL playoff unless they win the final, where they will automatically qualify for the group stages.

Pool is one up at the half thanks to a goal by Sturridge on one of his few touches of the matches.

10:03 AM

Not happy about the timing of the last match at SFL. The Spuds will be up for the match and know that a win will clinch second place. It will be tough for United.

Nice and Agers are two contrasting emotions. It may have been lost in the translation, LOL!

10:25 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I've been disappointed by the Hammers so far too. They're playing at home and yet are allowing Liverpool to dominate.

10:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sam Byram was the player that kept Sturridge onside for the goal. Sorry, mate.

10:26 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A double substitution by Slaven. Feghouli for Calleri and Fletcher for Fonte. A more attacking formation for the Hammers.

10:27 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Adrian fists away a Pool free kick. Rocky would be pleased.

10:28 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Bilic has seen enough: Feghouli and Fletcher are soon to come on; in fact they’re coming on now, Fonte and Calleri departing.

10:28 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

West Ham have reverted to a back-four - and four in midfield, with two up front. How quaint!

10:29 AM

I'm sure you and the Gooner will be looking forward to the SFL farewell on goal zone after the match.

Oh - Wynaldum off the post.

GOAL! Coutinho does find the net!

10:29 AM

GOAL !!!! COUTINHO PUTS POOL TWO UP WITH A WELL PLACED LONG RANGE EFFORT SECONDS AFTER WIJNALDUM HAD A SHOT CRASH OFF THE BA

10:30 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

West Ham never recovered after that looping effort struck the bar. They allowed Coutinho to pick up the pieces and weave his way into a shooting position. Bottom left corner.

0-2!

10:30 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I thought the volley from Wijnaldum that crashed off the bar was a better effort than the shot that scored.

10:32 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

An hour gone and it's hard to see the Hammers getting back into this one. Jon Champion is suggesting that Leeds old boy Snodgrass should come off the bench now.

10:33 AM

Fegouli has a shot deflected for a corner after a cross from Lanzini was headed out.

10:33 AM

Feghouli had a chance off the volley there. Deflected out for a corner.

10:33 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

From the corner there are loads of shouts for a penalty!

Liverpool run it down the pitch and score through Coutinho!

Bilic is livid!

10:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!! COUTINHO PUTS POOL THREE UP WITH HIS SECOND IN MINUTES!

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

Should the referee have stopped the match for Winston Reid to receive treatment? Well, he played on and Liverpool are 0-3 up.

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

James Collins got a yellow card for protesting after the incident.

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

Liverpool are rampant now!

10:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Hammers were distracted as the corner Fegouli was headed away. An accidental elbow by Wijnaldum caught Winnie Reid's face. Pool countered and it concluded with Coutinho passing to Lallana, who passed to Wijnaldum , who found Coutinho all alone in the Hammers box with the Hammers back four caught ball watching and Coutinho easily smashed home from close range.

10:37 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

What a difference it would have made if the ref had given a penalty for the challenge of Wijnaldum on Reid.

1-2 rather than 0-3.

10:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think the ref made the right decision to play on. They lost concentration on the counter and paid the price. Three goals as well as three points for Pool.

10:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Can fouls Fegouli just outside the Pool box.

10:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A waste of a free kick from Lanzini. Well over.

10:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Since this one is done and dusted, I may leave a little early to take Sparky walkies ahead of the farewell match at SFL.

10:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

If the Hammers sign Zaba, then it will be hard for Sam Byram to break into the starting lineup.

10:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ashley Fletcher got behind the Pool back four, but took one touch too many and his shot was blocked by Minnie from a narrow angle.

10:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Winnie Reid fouls Origi just outside the Hammers box.

10:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

An unusually poor free kick from Coutinho makes it halfway to SFL.

10:45 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That makes sense - I'm sure that Sparky is pining for a walkies.

10:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It will be tough for the Gunners to finish in the top four with Citeh hosting the Baggies and away to the Hornets while Pool conclude with already relegated Middlesbrough at Anfield. Hard to see Citeh or Pool slipping up in any of those matches.

GOAL !!! ORIGI PUTS POOL FOUR UP AS THIS ONE OS GETTING OUT OF HAND.

10:48 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

More Keystone Kops defending from the Hammers. They had a million chances to clear but Origi pops up at the back post to side foot it home.

10:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

This one is starting to look like training ans far too easy for Pool as they were passing the ball around far too easily. After many passes, Sturrdge passed to Lallana, whose close range effort was blocked by Adrian and Origi passed the rebound into the back of the net.

10:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed about Snoddy. He must be glad to be at the Hammers instead of the Tigers. Strange that he was dealt by the Tigers.

10:52 AM

The Hammers will be doing a lap of honor at the conclusion of this match. How is being thrashed at home an honor.

10:53 AM

United have no realistic chance of catching them so the three league matches coming up for United have no real pressure to get any points.... don't go out to not lose.. go out and try and entertain and win

I guess the best choices for next Sunday seem to be the Foxes vs the Cherries because both teams always try to play good footie no matter what's at stake.
