Euro 2012 III : First up

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 First up
A commentators nightmare –
Poland versus Greece is manageable
Until you get to the teamsheet – and the vowels get mangled and tangled….

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Papastathopoulos, to Papadopoulus, to
Poponeontopofus, for a headed opener
Then Szczesny, to Piszczek to Blaszczykowski to Polanksi
And perhaps we’ll be treated to home-nation romanski !



Only one of them is made up!

And written before kick off

Posted up mid-match.
One – all at time of posting, one man each sent off, Greece just missed a penno
