Michael, back on form

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Owen
without knowin’
how
1-2-3 kerpow
breaks his duck
not down to luck
but sheer class
and the odd sublime pass
from his mates
as the floodgates
open wide
and the snide
comments from his detractors
give way, to smiles from his benefactors
12 games without a goal
but on the whole
just a blip in his career
undoubtedly, we’re
indebted
as he netted
to his cool composure
bringing closure

Notes

Sept 28th 2002 : Man City 0-3 Liverpool
Michael Owen scored a hat-trick after 12 games without a goal
Then scored another hat-trick away to Spartak Moscow, in the Champions League, 22.10.2002
And he’s been on a healthy scoring run since
