Mendez shot has crossed the line.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 All around the ground they roared
as Mendez shot his thunderbird
but the linesman undeterred,
claimed he never saw or heard.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Mendez shot was super fine
with open eyes they gasped…they froze.
But the linesman’s eyes were closed.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 All around the ground the same,
Spurs were victors of the game.
Where’s the justice from this night?
Is the linesman ever right?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Spurs were cheated out of sight,
reinstate the points tonight.
Review the game, a new decree,
use androids now to run the line,
and set those free, who cannot see.

Notes

Would Arsenal and Manchester United be treated in the same manner?
Do high profile clubs exact more recognition from those who monitor and regulate the game?
