1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Who knows what will happen when England play Sweden
Nae more Turnips v Swedes that’s fae sure
And yon Southgate in his smart waistcoat
Put that ghost of ’96 to sleep
A lesson in patience resilience indeed
But most of all
When meeting disaster with triumph
Perhaps this is the still the English way
Amidst the hullabuloo
Quietly doing the right thing.



A lovely lesson from Gareth Southgate in using patience resilience and determination to deal with failure on the road to success.
