Championship Highlights

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A plastic bag is blown onto the pitch
And goes out for a throw in.
Gliding smoothly into the box,
Not the ball, a pigeon.
A ballboy is woken from slumber
By a wayward pass
The referee is nutmegged
And falls flat on the grass
Linesmans arms like windmills
Subbed due to severe flagstrain
Announcement on the tannoy
To cancel the away fans train

Notes

Some of the fixtures are so soporific you have to take enjoyment where you can. Norwich have booked themselves back into the Championship and it’s another season to relish.
