Notes

Notes: A heroic couplet is a traditional form for English poetry, commonly used for epic and narrative poetry; it refers to poems constructed from a sequence of rhyming pairs of iambic pentameter lines.

In this case the heroic 4-4-2 formation so beloved of football poets, purists and passioante purveyors of the Beautiful Game.
