A tactical plan to combat chronic time wasting

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Time is very precious; we have nothing else but time,
So watching Dundalk wasting it seemed very like a crime.
Whene’er the whistle sounded, they would tap the ball away
And seemed to take a lifetime just to get it back in play.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Of course, they’d had a man sent off, which buggered up their game
And yes, if roles had been reversed, I’m sure we’d do the same,
But really! Any neutral fans would hang their heads and sigh
To watch the antics of the players as precious time slipped by.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But is it fair to blame Dundalk? For Shels knew what to do
To stop the feigning injury that started right on cue.
All it needed was a bit of skill and self-control
To take the ball down Dundalk’s end and stick it in the goal.



First game of the season – Shels 0 Dundalk 0
