Jargon*

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 This game of ours got technical
Linesmen became assistant referees
Ruptured anterior cruciate ligaments
Used to be dodgy knees

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Trainers replaced by physios
Kit man bowed to sports scientist
“He spurned a gold plated opportunity”
Used to be “He missed”

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 You’re not knocked out of the Cup
You’re concentrating on the league
Midfielder and manager had a spat
But he’s dropped due to ‘viral fatigue’

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Central defenders clatter in
The official gives a foul for ‘obstruction’
Striker leaves the field of play
His probosis needs reconstruction

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 But the thing to really do it for me
Will be when the referee says
“an infringement by the defending team has taken place in the area in front of their goal and so I have decreed that the attacking side shall have an unrestricted shot at goal”
Instead of “Penalty”!!!

Notes

Jargon* has a different meaning in Norfolk – run slowly for physical exercise.

Happy New Year Everybody.
