Almost got the 5-a-side team now
With a gnarled, snarling, churlish (and ancient) sweeper
Just need a spritely, bouncing keeper
The Thinker, sharp and combative
The Bull, charging around up front
Heart on his sleeve
Desperate to achieve

And Paddy, where will you fit?
At the back, alongside your daddy?
In goal? Leaping, and reaping, praise
Covering for your da, in too much of a hamstrung haze
Or linking between your brothers?
Bright, breezy, tough as teak
A glut of glittering goals to seek?

And who to fill the number 5 shirt?
Tough as old boots and ready to dish the dirt?
To drive us through the rain and pain
An engine, that just keeps on churning
With an ambition, a hunger, that’s brightly burning
Who chivvies and consoles
Steady at the controls
The floodlight, who constantly beams
Her way, into all of our darkest dreams
