Ninety: In Instalments

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 When each game is analysed
It is found
That the actual playing time
On the hallowed ground
Is less than sixty minutes

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Our first team lacks lustre
This season
Their actual playing time
Amounts to treason
Cometh the hour, goeth the men

Notes

It’s not just their shirts that are numbered. Worthingtons job is on the line, however unreasonable this may seem. He can only be scored on results; past glories are filed under history and that’s not a popular subject among fans.
