T’would seem the two footed tackle
Is back en vogue again
Where some over commited maniacal
Could really cause a bloke some pain.
Of course John Obi Mikel
Should have been dismissed
He could have snapped Phil Neville’s leg
The mere fact that he missed
By miles. Is neither here nor there.
Sitting there like an eejit
With a beaming smile on his mug
The Everton players to be fair to them
Pleaded on his behalf “Oi Ref don’t send him off”.
And the home fans putting their hands together
For a round of applause,
As he trudged toward an early bath
Under the cosh and down to ten, because of him,
Are they having a bleedin laugh?
Nearly down to nine much later
As Ricky Carvalhio lost his head
With the kinda tackle that just three weeks ago
Caused his early au revior in red.
Avram Grant must be going meshuggena*
With the lack of discipline
In our first team squad
I notice he couldn’t bear to look at him (Mikel)
As the guilty culprit sauntered off.
Our resources are stretched already
Due to injury and the African Nations
So three match bans due to red card hot heads
Just now. Ain’t doing us any favours!
