Nil-nil

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I saw the match on Tele that day
A fair result is all I can say
Man U gave all they’d got
And we know that’s quite a lot
But the Gunners clearly matched them all the way

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Viera and the aptly named Roy Keane
Were giants as they sought to urge their team
Ryan Giggs set out his stall
A welsh wizard on the ball
That he was out of luck was clearly seen

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Kolo Toure and the speedy Ashley Cole
Helped Jens Lehman guard the Arsenal goal
Along with Keown they held back
The Red Devils’ fierce attack
A fifty-fifty effort on the whole

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 With just about ten minutes left to go
Van Nistleroy and Viera stole the show
Near the six-yard box they clashed
To the turf the big men crashed
And Viera aimed a kick with his big toe

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Though he missed the striker by a mile
The ref did not see fit to smile
Viera of course began to talk
But with two yellows, had to walk
We’ve not seen him so angry for a while

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 The game was in its final throes
In extra time, all on their toes
When a penalty was awarded to Man U
Van Nistleroy hit the bar
That nearly started another war
The referee put hand to mouth and blew

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 We did not see much style and skill
But of passion and guts, we had our fill
These two great teams will meet again
Lets hope we see more of the same
Even if, like this time, its nil-nil
