Sound bites

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 “Never Surrender!”
If Ian Paisley had brought his undoubted passion
into football
we’d never have been able to rob him of possession

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 “We’ll fight them on the beaches”
If war – hadn’t been the catalyst
Winston would have had us competing with Brazil
for a scoreline by the shoreline

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 “I have a dream …”
If Martin Luther King had been English …
more than Gullit and Tigana
we could have had Anderson, Batson, Barnes, Alexander, Rosenior, Curle, Palmer, Ferdinand …
nevertheless, the Premiership still awaits, Paul Ince

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 “Buuuurrrrpppp!!!!”
Unfortunately as sound bites go
we had Gazza
as an icon

posted up on the 40th Anniversary of the assasination of civil rights leader Martin Luther King
