Euro 2012 D Day Minus 3

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 And so,
days before a major Finals,
an Irish midfielder breaks ranks,
skips past the despairing lunge
of a thick-skulled manager,
and runs to the arms of the press,
complaining about training.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Quite unprecedented, of course.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Oh, Aiden,
ask poor Kevin Foley if he thought
training was too draining.
I’m sure the Black Sea in June
is very beautiful. Can you imagine yourself
stretched out, dozing on a sunbed
as we take the field in Poznan?
