1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 To own the goal – and surrounding box
Is the aspiration, the striker’s aim
The achievement of which
Brings everlasting fame

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 An owned goal – be it deflection
Scuffed, or toughed, or just being in the vicinity
Doesn’t bother the fox in the box
They just hanker for divinity

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 An owed goal
A striker’s payback, after a drought
Or return from injury, or revenge
But usually dedicated, to the supporters who doubt

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 An Owen goal
So familiar to the Kop
Who cherish the memories
Of days when they were top

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 So to own a goal
Strikers find fit and proper
But at the wrong end?
Crouchy comes a cropper!
