I’ve Two Priceless…Gems!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Me two priceless goal gems are Oranje
Eighteen carat (sic) shiny and sparkling
One was for Ajax, the other for Holland
Both fashioned by Marco Van Basten.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 One was what’s known as a bycycle kick
And t’other? A quite unbelievable volley
So those shining gems in me memory stick
Coz to my mind, Van Basten was Vincent Van Gogh
On the canvas that’s the eighteen yard box

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Anything else? Is sheer folly!



Only in my opinion, of course!

Me other fave goal is Igor Belanov’s against the Belgiums, for the USSR in The World Cup. A poem or two about that’s, up here already.

Check out YouTube, tap in Marco Van Basten’s name and you can see for yourselves what a class act this bloke really was. One of the doyens in the art that is goal-scoring at the very highest level. The two I’ve mentioned here, are on there as well.
