Arriving early to take in the warm up
As security searched through me bag
I wondered how fifty mill would stack up
In a pre-match with our first team lads.
Like minded fans in their hundreds
Crept towards electronic gates
As blue shirts brought bearing: F.Torres moniker
Adorned all gathered there and his mate.
On my shout to enter the turnstile
Me credit card ticket glowed red
Turning and trying again with a smile
Security told me “Sorry your ticket is dead”.
“Take a walk around to the ticket office
They’ll issue you a new ticket now”
So any chance of seeing a 50 mill Torres
During pre-match was definitely out.
Making me way round the stadium
Peeved I might miss the start of the match
Though in hindsight (a truly wonderful thing)
I might have been much better off as it happened.
So yesterday’s destined to history
We never turned up and that’s fact
Like last season’s double a far away mystery
With no way of turning it back.
The future though could be interesting
Could the strength of the big four or five wane?
Though right here and now what us Blues fans are interested in
Is our number nine, F.Torres (El Nino) by name!
