Club or Country?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Who cares if England play like wimps,
When Swindon win away at the Imps.

I’ve never used the word wimp in conversation or in writing…I try to avoid constructs of masculinity…but what rhymes with Lincoln? Anyway, my serious point is…nothing about the nation-state being an anachronism etc…or perhaps it is…is this the age of the death of international football? Are supporters, let alone players, becoming rather more wedded to club competitions? Whp pays the piper etc…
