Blue’s On Fire… At The Mestalla

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Despite a punk hair cut defying the odds
With that save to remind us of Banks
We leave The Mestalla with thoughts of a quad
Joey Cole restored fit to our ranks

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A hostile reception had said we would fail
In our quest to put the mockers to bed*
But a brave referee who was right on the nail
Made sure that the game was well led

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The fans were a credit to both teams
So it’s right we should give them some praise
Now it’s back to the business of doubles and trebles
A quad if it all goes our way?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 If it does goes pear shaped, as it could, then that’s that
Our journey’s been tense and exciting
We’ll ponder on that when such time should arise
But right now? We’ve been struck by blue lightning!



* ‘The mockers’ in this instance is a slang term for a jinx or bad luck.

Another great night for two of the three English teams left in the Champions League and one more who should go through, tonight.
