A French Farce?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A laughable stance by the Lille team from France
Caused ‘old purple nose’, to roar from the bench
From the various views being booted about
Is that laughable stance,…. now making sense?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 If ‘old purple nose’ had clumped Gary Neville,
As he raced to the pitch in great haste
Would Platini say ‘Je suis purple nosed enfant terrible’*
Then charge The Old Trafford Knight with GBH?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 What a crazy French farce, that is stupid, lacks class
Where a replay could be on the cards
I thought Platini would wake up EUFA at long last
From it’s out dated ideals of the past?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 As everyone blames one another
For all that went wrong on the night
Lets hope this French farce is sorted out fast
And that the the Man Yoo fans got home alright!


*Eds, not sure if this Francais is correct, so if you know better, feel free to change it!

All sorts of stuff on the wireless about this. Ticket forgeries, touts selling tickets to fans for the wrong ends of the ground, loads of fans, from both teams, travelling without tickets and trying to get in to the ground. Frightening, listening to the match, after the events of the past!

The idea that the Lille team could, do as one of the Arab teams did in the World Cup a few years ago, walk off the pitch, en masse because a decision went against them, on the night seemed ridiculous.

But they(Lille) seem to be serious about getting the match replayed and their campaign to do so is gaining momentum by the day.

This game, if it is replayed, could be a first radical course of action by the former French midfield maestro, now head of EUFA… Michel Platini.

What was Fergie trying to say or do to Gary Neville, pitch side, as the French team contemplated au revior? Weird.
