Conspiracy Theory or VARsh Reality?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Corner kick in his mind
Eyeballs the monitor behind
Before racing back on to the field…
Vlad appears on the miniature screen
Snarling, broody like, mean,
“Right sunbeam this here’s the deal…

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Your blossoming movie career
Finishes here
Unless them French boys get awarded this pen
I’m meeting McDonald in Helsinki this week
Could pull a few Hollywood strings so to speak?
Or there’s the Gulag my son, then again…”?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Said pen gets knocked in
France go on and win
Croatia’s complaints – like their hopes – disappear
In a Moscow hotel bathroom mirror
A referee takes time out to deliver
His winning speech for The Oscars next year.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Does the above make any sense?
Or am I talking absolute nonsense?
Well…no-one’s saying you have to believe me?
But this here conspiracy theory
Holds more credence, I’m sure you’ll agree,
Than yesterdays VARsical World Cup reality?


The theory above suggested – last evening – by a geezer in West London I know, knows a geezer, etc, etc. Me? Being gullible I’ll believe anything. But…theres no smoke without fire as they say.

Watching Vlad and that bald lad from FIFA
Getting all pally, in the bullet-proof prior to the game
Gave me a right queasy interior as kick-off drew nearer
I’m still somewhat at pains to explain?

Go well, be lucky and keep smiling.
