3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 it’s only at the back-end of the season
that we’ll really see the front-runners;
rewind
foresight here and now,
might just crystalise the Gunners?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 or perhaps we’ll be seduced
pre-campaign
by the billions from Roman urns
and Chelski’s free-flowing champagne?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 but elsewhere, ambition also burns
will it be the striped Magpies
who manage to steal away
with the cherished Premiership prize?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 or will the pride of Merseyside
Houllier’s reds
regain their former glories
and tear the opposition to shreds?

when all are invited
it’s hard to see anyone winning
other than United

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Who shall prevail
as the winds blow stronger
and the nights grow longer?

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Who shall prevail
as the pitches freeze
and ditches fill with trees?

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 Who shall prevail
when grounds are covered in snow
and morale is running low?

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 Who shall prevail
when the turkey and stuffing
seperate the perky and puffing

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 Who shall prevail
as we enter into Spring
and centre from the wing?

14 Leave a comment on verse 14 0 Who shall prevail
as the light returns
and ambition brightly burns?

15 Leave a comment on verse 15 0 Who shall prevail
as we spy the finishing post
and see, just who wants it most?

16 Leave a comment on verse 16 0 Blessed be the triumphant
for when everyone else has failed
only one team will have prevailed!
