It’s good to be back

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Been out of the game these last seven weeks.
For reasons quite boring and trite
The telly’s not bad with the Croats or Greeks
But you can’t beat the live Friday night

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 With the country all gripped in a fever
While Irish players huffed and they puffed
Explaining to daydream believers
As to whether it’s pumped or it’s stuffed

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The Olé brigade sing a powerful ditty
While average players stand by
But I’d rather be shouting for City
Than some field in far off Athenry

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 It’s Derry this week with Jonah McCourt
Curragh Road with Lucas and dad
Joining my brethren in sacred support
To watch my dear City, how bad?

Notes

For various reasons I haven’t seen Cork City in 7 weeks.
We’ve had a three week mid-season break here in Ireland for the Euros (shouldn’t have bothered).
This week we’re at home to Derry, live football I can’t wait.
Jonah McCourt is our Derry exile Michael, who hasn’t seen his Derry side win yet this season. Long may that continue.
