Interesting or What?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A sigh of deep relief
Released on Copacabana Beach
Fills the air as Nay Ma swoops to score
Yet yer man was the proverbial mile off-side
As camera angles on the half-way line
Clearly show yet are blatantly ignored.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 An earlier tantrum by the whining star
Earn him a well deserved yellow card
For shall we say a bit of a hissy fit?
Add to that his penalty shout VAR turned down
When he self wrestled in slo-mo to the ground
Made the cynic in me think…should such a hair-cut even still be on the pitch?


In Brazils opening game of the last World Cup, if memory serves me well? Nay Ma should have been sent off for blatant use of the elbow, on an opponent, yet he wasn’t. So were we looking at a bit of diplomatically put…Deja Vu – by way of preferential treatment – last night to keep the current golden-boy of Brazilian football – and sponsored icon – out on the pitch? When…in my humble opinion he should have been sent off for the dodgy coiffure alone, oh and two bookable offences…and he wasn’t the only one.

Go well, be lucky and keep smiling.
