Beating the Bolton Curse

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Ten men faced an impossible task,
0-2, was a big ask,
45 minutes to turn it around,
to beat the Wanderers in their own ground.
Substitutions and the Arsenal sings,
because Adebayor is a talisman and Walcott flies down the wing.
and nobody scores against Bolton from corners,
tell that to Gallas and the Reebok stadium’s mourners!
Penalty! Van Persie’s back!
2 each and we’re on the attack,
we are known for scoring late goals,
in the dying stages, to shatter souls,
Samuel, own goal on 90 minutes,
title race? we’re still in it!
Bolton Curse been put to bed,
we’re still fighting, we’re not yet dead.

Notes
