Missing a point

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 You got the points
We’re upset
it’s a temporary thing
soon forget
but what you didn’t get
let’s not forget
is the point.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He “touched” his face
be a man
take it with grace
take a stand.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But to dive
oh how the skies fell
caught in the headlights
caught in a train wreck.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 For his charity
I’m a donor, I’ll give
take my kidney
so that he may have a chance to live.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Sure others have feigned
it’s in the game
but all the same
it is a shame.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 But for their sake
it’s advantage gained
but to make a man miss games
that’s insane.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 With your King’s road ransom
and all your King’s road men
Hope you manage to put poor Roben together again.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 You got the points
We’re upset
it’s a temporary thing
but don’t forget
the glorious history
of the glorious reds
but in our shadows you’ll always remain.

Notes

Poet’s Note
“No-one denies that Reina shouldn’t be sent off (the tackle is worthy of yellow at worst…even though he got the ball…but o.k. yellow is fine).

He raised his hands but Roben made sure the nail firmly hammerred into that coffin………..”etc

Editor’s Note:Totally happy to print your poem..you are entitled to voice the way you see things .Please note – I have shortened your notes at the end slightly, in order to reply and because as we are not about sparking a frenzy here on this one.(and we all know how many htyings L’pool have won)far more than Chelsea… all we are syaing ..like it or notr is Raised hand -off!
But you’re right about the rest and diving!
…the only problem with Diving (and also every Ref’s problem in Europe ) is no-one can prove that Arjen or anyone ever actually dived can they…?except maybe that calssic Rivaldo corner when he was thrown the ball ..it hit him on the leg..and he clutched his face falling!!!
…..(not until we have sophisticated pitch-side strength in the hand registering technological evidence !)
so for now go well..lively debate though!..
One thing’s for sure..Liverpool are a million time better this season than last.. and have put United and Gooners temporarily into the shade..!
