Cajole, patrol, control
Firemans pole, oriole
King Creole, stroll parole
Droll vole, whole soul
Sole shoal, doleful foal
Speaking role, Billy Joel
Noel stole an arctic roll

Notes

Hurrah for the language of football. Simon Lappin, midfield Scot for Norwich City, says ‘most of the English lads don’t understand a word
I say, so Big Daves got no chance’. Big Dave is David Strihavka from the Czech Republic. He, after just two months, has basic English. It would no doubt take me a couple of millenia to get a grip of his native
speak.
