Return of the saviours

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Coming out of retirement
Makelele & Zidane
For to help France
Jump out of the frying pan

The Republic of Ireland
Meet like with like
Bring back their own firebrands

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 A midfield packed with experience :
Brady, Dunphy & Giles
Just don’t expect ’em
To run for miles and miles

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Bill kicks off ; “So Eamonn, What do you think of the oppo?”
“Not great – nothing to be afraid of
Once Roy gets a rumbling
We’ll soon see what they’re made of”

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The Irish captain
himself a returnee
aims his sights higher
just inches above the knee

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 “Zizou and Ukelele may be Musketeers
but we’ll blunt their blades with our labours
and with our steel and our guile
they’ll be no match for our sabres”

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 “Now that we’ve ditched McCarthy
they’ll have no wish to embroil
in any physical mullarkey
and their tactics we will foil”

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 “For once Roy is in motion
he knows how to treat ’em mean –
then we’ll deliver own rapier
step forward Robbie Keane”.

on the news that :
Zinedine Zidane and Claude Makelele are coming out of retirement for France.

Bill : Bill O’Herlihy – RTE’s equivalent to Des Lynam

And his first choice punditry team :
Liam Brady, Eamon Dunphy & Johnny Giles.

Eamon Dunphy wrote Roy Keane’s biography and wasn’t a fan of Mick McCarthy –
and reminds us of both facts, at every (shay) given opportunity.
