But is it art?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Who will doodle, who will dart?
Who will add the glitter, who will act the part?
Who will flounce at the easle, who will play with all their heart?
Who will be abstract, who will display finishing smart?
Who will be ripping off ears, who’s likely to depart?
Who will produce Sunflowers, on a pitch not fit for a cattle mart?
Who will act as Constable, who will upset the apple cart?
Who will be an Impressionist, who will make a difference right from the start?
And who is it will be claimed as Master, the Special One who sets the teams apart?

Inspired by the closing quote from a news item on the BBC website today :

The referee for Chelsea’s Champions League match against Barcelona has told both managers to complain only to him.

“If the manager has any criticism of me I want him to say it to my face,” referee Terje Hauge told The Sun.

“I want Jose Mourinho, and all managers, to talk to me after the game before going to his news conference.”

Last season, Chelsea boss Mourinho sparked controversy by accusing Barca’s Frank Rijkaard of speaking to the referee at half-time at the Nou Camp.

The referee on that occasion was Anders Frisk, who later quit the game after receiving death threats as a result of the row.

Norwegian Hauge added: “Of course I was thinking about what happened to Anders Frisk when it became clear that I would be the referee in this match.

“I know Anders well. It is natural for us Scandinavians to stick together and we are good friends.

“It is a shame he is not a referee anymore because he was one of the best.

“I know this is a match with history but before I blow the whistle it is a blank piece of paper.”
