A Great Result Indeed

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The crowd was small [because of greed?]
And colder than a naked Swede,
But Lille and Shelbourne did proceed
To serve up some fine fare indeed.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The Lille lads seemed a different breed,
Played football with a fluent creed.
‘Twas no surprise they took the lead,
And things looked very grim indeed.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 In that dreadful first half, we’d
Looked always likely to concede.
They picked us off with pace and speed,
And looked so very sharp indeed.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 It caused our stony hearts to bleed,
That fickle fate should intercede.
Those howling torrents did recede
And things got very calm indeed.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 But Shels responded to the need
And paid the game more careful heed.
And twice, bold Jason Byrne was freed,
Though finishing was poor indeed.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 And as we, with our gods, did plead,
Eventually they did accede,
And helped young Fitzer to succeed
By scoring twice with flair indeed.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 The Gallic lads, no longer geed
Up by their coach, just went to seed,
As down the slippy slope they ski-ed,
And looked quite vulnerable indeed.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 And so the tie is nicely teed,
Despite the things that one might read.
The lads can certainly exceed
All expectations. Yes, indeed!
