Churchill in goal, a safe, sure pair of hands,
Isaac the newt and Fleming the phial line up
As the full backs to lend that scientific touch.
Centre backs Nelson and Wellington; nothing
Gets past them.
The midfield general is Monty, directing Ops.
Creator supreme has to be the boy Will, pulls
All the strings – a star performer.
Wide men Constable and Turner are classically
English. That Scouse duo up front John and Paul
A telepathic combo, music to our ears.
Boss of this unit, a tough task. Only Cloughie
Could do it.
