Monsieur Wenger’s Rage

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A s the family of football hail him a footballing Professor
R ed rages, not the the norm with Monsieur Wenger
S uccess, a byword of the mercurial one’s career
E xuding sparkling mineral water, not so the traditional beer
N ever have we seen him so animated as against the Claret
E nvy and rage had him reaching for a heavy rounded fleurette
W est Ham, a place where passion runs en bloc
E njoin and agree, Professeur’s emotions ran amok
N ow the time he did his best Mourinho impersonation
G reat story for the hacks, gleefully scribbling with jubilation
E nd this farce scream the blazer brigade
R eal fans pray this witch-hunt won’t become a point-scoring crusade

Notes

All winners are bad losers. Wenger is a true footballing giant who has revolutionised the Premiership with his expertise and artistry. The game owes him.
