Olé o nay

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Roy Keane
used to be part of a team
that was implored
by boss and fans
to “Put ’em under Pressure!”

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 now the ball
is firmly on the other foot
and there’ll be a certain sense
of schadenfreude
from many back in Cheshire

and beyond

“Put ’em under Pressure” – the anthem of Jack Charlton (as Ireland manager) and the Irish fans – it was even turned into a very successful World Cup song.

this poem – prompted not just by his current plight, but because my son was finishing up his school project last night – his subject? Yup, the Mayfield Manc.
