Leeds Dug Deep for a Point against the Mancs

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Leeds dug deep for a point against the Mancs
But honestly the draw was mainly thanks
To shaky rearguard action without Rio
Which meant United lacked their usual brio

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 When little Gary Neville spat his dummy
It showed that staff relations ain’t that chummy
And with the Gunners cruising swiftly past
Sir Alex may be wondering if they’re arsed

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The close-ups show he’s not a happy bunny
And no way is the situation funny
No no it wouldn’t do at all to mock
Cos some expensive heads are on the block

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 There’s hair-do’s that will need some urgent drying
And in the changing room the boots are flying
Becks did the right thing getting off the scene
Cos when the pressure’s on the boss gets mean

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 But as for Leeds they challenged the Dark Lord
And took some points that he can ill afford
The fellowship defied the mighty Scum
And made them take a tumble on their bum

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 They went right to the gates of Cirith Ungol
And luckily for them they didn’t bungle
With aim that’s true young Smithy hit the net
And caused the Stretford orcs to rail and fret

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 For several weeks the Reds have just stood still
To lose that lead must be a bitter pill
I’m struggling here to keep Leeds in the frame
But hey with their form, frankly who’s to blame?

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 I suppose with every point that’s in the bag
Their situation’s marginally less dag
But face it all improvement is comparative
So let’s await developments in the narrative

Notes

This one’s a kind of holding operation until something
more interesting comes along in Leeds season. The
fixture was of course Man U 1 : Leeds 1 on 21 Feb
2004.

It’s all a bit humdrum at present, but nonetheless a
good result for the lads which needs to be recognised
as far as allegiances permit.

Gary Neville spectacularly lost it during this game.
