Jaws of victory

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 An unlikely and mammoth Israeli victory
Guaranteed gold for the merry men of John Terry

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Croats at fortress Wembley – let there reign no fear
A posse of pretenders, Macedonia made disappear

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But… snatching certain defeat from the jaws of victory
Is an English custom, bemusing all and sundry

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Thanks to Macca we tried the great Scott Carson
His person was shredded, left like a victim of arson

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 And where was Hargreaves when the defence needed protection
As Macca threw the kitchen sink to all out action

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 A Croat victory cost Bilic a premiership position
But for Blanc’s best mate Italy’s on the horizon

Notes

Only in England, only in England – Euro 2008 will be poorer for it
