Oh Dear Thierry-You win hands down.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 He questions Ref’s decisions
with a wag of the finger,
a shake of his head and a non, non, non.
But now Mr Henry we question you,
because what you did
was so very wrong!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Your sublime skills
that grace the field of dreams
will become a distant memory.
We teach the children,
fair play, respect,
there’s no need to cheat,
there’s no ‘I’ in team.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 You say that there was no intention,
It was not deliberate.
Your body language told a different story,
a Press conference
with subdued regret.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 You handled the ball,
not once but twice, just to make sure.
A moment of desperation
for the team that does not deserve to be there.
There will be no replay of the game,
Or (we hope) your un-gentlemanly conduct monsieur….
