Blanchflower

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 He was a footballing hero before
I knew of other football heroes,
a Northern Irishman before
I knew there were Northern Irish,
a Double Champion when
Tottenham Hotspur won
both Cup & League. Spurs?
Incredible you say. . . !
Indeed! Fabulous deeds
achieved when Blanchflower
strode the pitch! Dannah!
Danny. . . Blanchflower!
