One Of These Days: A Full Back’s Triolet

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 All angles of approach were wrong;
James said ‘One of these days, you’ll play on the floor’,
but I was in the far corner: it was two on one.
All angles of approach were wrong.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The midfield was cross I was clipping it long;
I tried to look up and play what I saw.
We were like musicians on different songs,
James said: ‘One of these days, you’ll play on the floor.’

Notes

An overrun full-back’s frustration at the half-time critique.
