Looking for a Knockdown

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I`ve been looking for a knockdown
Since 1966
A shimmy or a nutmeg
In me little bag of tricks.
I`ve curled it
And I`ve chipped it, but
I can`t turn on the flame;
My final third is dismal
There`s a much more pressing game.

Notes

My interest in football was , like many, galvanised by the build-up to the World Cup. First match: Wolves 1 Crystal Palace 1. Davey Burnside equalising in the second half. What useful stuff we remember…for we are blokes.
