Guess who?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Subliminal, to a degree –
early comparisons
had him marked out as a Pele
then at different stages
Osgood, Cooke
Bell, Book
Rivelino, Rivera, Gerson
(all pre Merson)
Puskas, Cryuff, Best
Gascoigne, Hoddle, Robson, Lineker;
This changeling
this persona non-grata
grew smarter
and with age
into Fergie, Wenger, Mourinho …
then mixed in Frost, Wordsworth, Shakespeare…

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Subliminal, you have to agree
we’ll keep it our little secret
just between you and me



Happy Birthday – Will Shakespeare 23.4.09
