It used to be about football

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It used to be about football
Not the way a footballer looks.
It used to be about football
Not vast sums for Ghost-Written Books.
It used to be about football
Not a trashy Reality show.
It used to be about football
Not Photo spreads in ‘Hello’.
It used to be about football
Not the wives and girlfriends.
It used to be about football
Not all these worrying trends.
