Loftus Road ’82

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 From the way Simon Stainrod does his keepy-uppy tricks
on the bouncetastic Omniturf pitch

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 — the centrepiece an over-the-head juggle
nonchalantly caught by his nape—

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 you would never suppose that not fifteen minutes before,
in Huckleberry’s on the Uxbridge Road,

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Sheffield-sharp in a three-piece chocolate suit,
he ordered a cheeseburger deal to go

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 and, from under his mullety-wedge, nodded towards us
a wordless hello as he left.
