Born Again Sven

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Like many others
I was never convinced
By the ‘ice man’

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Too many England games
Of dashed hopes
Boredom and false dawns

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Yet Man City fans
May well have found
The answer to their woes

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Don’t get me started
On Thaksin ‘Frank’ Shinawatra
That’s for other prose

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 No, this is for Sven
Despite pecadillos and
Front page indiscretions

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 There is passion
Of a different sort
On the pitch at Eastlands.
