A Time of Change. C.V

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 So the whipping boys prevail
As England leave Brazil
Having just a point nicked in the final game
T’was the only thing they won
After two weeks in the sun
Yet I’m far from down. I thought we did okay.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I could write you ream on ream
On changes needed to the team
Or maybe even giving Roy his cards
But experts more astute than me at this
(Who scoff while advertising crisps)
Have said enough, which I find quite bizarre.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The wind of change don’t suit us all
But it’s obviously needed when we fall
Every time a tournament comes around
I’ve seen some players at first hand
In this World Cup, and Hodgson’s plans,
Comfortable, especially playing it on the ground.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I’ve watched some wonderful give and go’s
Two pacey wingers, (remember those?)
An elegant central midfielder with a shot
The option of three who can attack
and with a bit of tinkering at the back
I can see where Hodgson’s going with this crop.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 So this ain’t the time for being morbid
What I’ve seen so far is going forward
Toward a wonderful day for us punters on the street
So give the team a chance to bond
Welcome change and give a positive response
Toward a time of looking upward not downbeat.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 So for the slights and his taking of the piste
From the clown, our game’s made extremely rich
Sitting smugly in the studio while he scoffs:
You didn’t get to win The Golden Boot you nit
Cos Belanov scored more bleedin goals than you did
It’s time to get over it, and like the England team move on.

Notes

Rant over, except to say that, hopefully, when the next tournament comes along, surely something will have been done about the so called television experts getting their outlook (at least toward the teams from these islands anyway) at the very least a little bit more positive.

Always with the negative waves.

Stay well, be lucky and keep smiling.

Peace.

Kev.
