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!

Premiership Plus Predictions Game - Week 37 Update

Happy Monday to all of you! I'm basking in the beginning of my summer break, with the promise of ten weeks of backyard barbecues, outdoor concerts and tennis matches to come. How about the rest of you? I'm checking in as usual with the update of our PPP game. Well, the domestic season is just about sorted with only fourth place in the Premiership left up in the air. That might well be sorted tomorrow evening, leaving NBC Sports Network wondering why on Earth they're broadcasting anything on "Championship Sunday" next weekend.

You would think, given that picture that our game would also be done and dusted; however, you would be wrong. Red Devil did seem to have an unassailable lead going into the weekend, yet, here's the irony. Arsenal's win and United's loss means that the entire Nocito clan (United fans all) picked up four or five points, which puts them in the picture. Think of it this way: Red Devil is the side that has all the points but no matches to play (that is, with Chelsea's title win, he has officially maxed out his point total - he would need Jamie Vardy to go on a ten goal blitz in the final Leicester match in order to pick up any more points). The Nocito boys (Red Dragon, The Saint) have both picked Chelsea to win the FA Cup (8 points) and United to win the Europa League (4 points), while UWS has chosen Arsenal to win the Cup (8 pts) and Chelsea to lose (2 pts) Here's how that would play out:

Red Devil has 39 points now
Red Dragon - 30 points now (+8 points for Chelsea and 4 points for United) = 42
The Saint - 29 points now (+8 points for Chelsea and 4 points for United) = 41
United We Stand - 27 points (8 points for Arsenal, 2 points for Chelsea and 4 points for United) = 41

It's going to be a nail biter. Here are the current standings:

1. Red Devil 1FCK - 39 points
2. The Red Dragon - 30 pts
3. Man Utd Rules - 29 pts
-  The Saint - 29 pts
5. Blue Devil - 28 pts
-  What's Up Wheaton Simon - 28 pts
7. United We Stand - 27 pts
8. Yellows - 26 pts
9. Swansong - 25 pts
10. Gooner71 - 22 pts
11. West Ham Rising - 20 pts
12. Someone Said - 19 pts
