Saints Not Winners

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A match
To light up the sunset of the season
Thrown in to a box of fireworks
The atmosphere crackled like a bonfire
Referee blew his whistle and then stepped back
In the midst of an each way attack
Screamers and whizz bangs
Ooh aah hit the post
An evening of scoring
But who would score most?
Eight goals, and then penalties
Where else shows such drama?
FA Cup Final: Chelsea v Man U –
I predict – will be marginally calmer

Notes

Derby v Southampton play off semi final finished 4-4 on aggregate
Derby won 4-3 on penalties

The play-offs are football at its best, come on Big Two – show the nation what you can do – live on BBC One.
