Europe’s to blame – That’s topical !

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I remember back,
in the glorious day,
one game at home,
then one away.
Finals disappointing,
all about the “journey”,
it was football at
its most elementary.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Then they decided
to have a league,
not only for champions,
on this they agreed.
All domestic issues
were brushed aside.
Take the t.v money,
cash before pride.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 To dissenting voices
this is the retort,
kick a ball in a park,
if you want “sport”,
it’s all about business,
and increased revenue,
you’re just reactionary,
afraid of what’s new.

After reading the reports of the latest discussions between UEFA and the ECA. I am now convinced that the champions league, will change the game, and not for the better.
