Strachan The Genius

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Genius!
Sheer genius
There are no other words
For Gordon Strachan, the Sly Fox,
Has finally fathomed Boro’s strength
Used it ruthlessly, without compassion
To bag seasons’ first maximum points.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 TV torture …
Boro’s small-screen shocker …
Snooze-athon …
Desperate game …
Phrases uses by wordsmiths
To defend their titles as football pundits,
Who can not fathom
The football genius of Gordon Strachan.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The plan is simple
Put everyone to sleep
Assign one or two home players
Special mission – to stay awake,
Score only, after rigor mortis has set
In the opposition,
Simple but brilliant
– Plan of a genius.



After Sheffield Utd 22.August game.
