Bakayoko sent to Coventry!
Oh yes, my dream has come true
For I hate to see any waster
Turning out in my beloved Royal Blue
Leave a comment on verse 2 0
Alas and alack
It turns out to be Walsall’s Amadou
And not our Tiemou slacker
As part of this deadline day ballyhoo
Leave a comment on verse 3 0
Though he may yet depart
For we hear he could be Milan bound
Leaving on a jet plane
If the money for a loan can be found
Leave a comment on verse 4 0
Good riddance say I
And welcome to Kepa the Keeper
I know nothing about him, but at £71m
He’d better be a leaper!

Another worrisome thought:
Kovacic is our second incoming defensive mid
It’s bothering me that
Kante could be gone if PSG bid!
Leave a comment on verse 6 0
And oh! If only someone would take Morata
For him I’d easily accept a penny
Yet even at that price, would there be any takers?
I’ll confidently bet you – not many!
Transfer Deadline Day.

Poem & save!
We got our first colour tv for that Mexico World Cup.
The best ever as far as I’m concerned, on so many levels.

So many great lines here Nicholas ..and a big welcome to Football Poets. Keep on and more please.
I’m really interstged to know where you live now…and which period you lived and played in – in S.Africa and where? I lived there during apartheid long before Mandela’s release – running a New Age clothing shop on Claremont Cape Town 1972-1979 (as you do!) Now I still perform poetry live and drum on the terraces with a New Age (Vegan) club in League Two (and the next village) Forest Green . Keep on my friend. C
