Tension. This is important.
World Cup Final, Champions’ League, forget it.
No contest.

Tackles. No quarter asked. Or given.

Space, Go Go Go…Mine Freddie, Mine; Switch
It ! ”

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Half time, change round. No respite. Ref gets
Agitated as tempers fray. Names are taken…
Pitch cuts up; ball bounces crazily, no smooth
Interpassing here. Scramble, scrap, fight for it.

Dave Boy, Run On. Make It Yours, Now Now…”

Some lost. For fun, sure. For real, without doubt.
