Last nights prep was thorough
Die Bayern team fired up
Peps ex protégés were lack lustre,
Staid and in a rut.
Jupp Heynckes clever strategy
For that short pass Barca game
Left their lauded midfield floundering
In a swamp where it hadn’t rained?
Lightning give and goes are crucial
To Lionel Messi and his mates
But The Allianz ain’t The Camp Nou
With that lush green hallowed baize.
At four nought, they was lucky
I shouted Penalty out loud twice
As Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery
Raced down wings where wingers thrive.
Bayern simply oozed with class
Despite a doctored pitch
When playing Guardiola’s game on grass
Next year, Die Bayern could be Kings?
So it’s over to The Camp Nou
For what should be a wonderful second game
And should Heynckes take Die Bayern through
Will he toast his groundsman’s name?
