No Goals

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The nil-nil draw,
often forgotten,
mostly bemoaned,
scuffed shots and
crosses to nowhere at all.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Keepers love it,
because that elusive,
hard-fought clean-sheet
is worth ten goals
to us.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I’ve defended it before
because a great save
is better to watch
than a hat-trick.
but this brand,

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 the Arsenal style
0-0, is notable
for nothing but the lack
of decent finishing
from us

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 and the lack of decent
anything from them,
a small moral victory
no consolation
because clean-sheets

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 alone are not enough,
we need our strikeforce
back to it’s best,
without omission,
if Europe is our destiny.
