The 4 Musketeers (One for All and Six for One)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 are we in some new moon
are we peaking too soon
can these forwards just never keep still?
from Fulham to Arsenal
from the Bridge to Newcastle
is six-nil the new one-nil?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 and where are the tedious boring old days
when we clung to our leads for dear life
when without any fuss
we would park up the bus
and time-waste to simply survive?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 so let’s not start slating defenders
those nets are all waiting to fill
may the next musketeer
be more cavalier
and make six-nil the normal one-nil

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 let the pundits all bang on forever
with their tedious breakdowns and blame
thank god you can’t hear
all that stuff in your ear
when you’re actually there at the game

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 let’s turn a blind eye to posession
let’s dance like they do in Brazil
no more with the boring
go on with the scoring
now six-nil’s the new one-nil?


Being as superstitious as most footie fans, I just hope this silly reflection isn’t the kiss of death. Four 6-0 matches already: Chelsea ,Arsenal, Newcastle and Fulham and that’s only from Premier League sides. Calm down guys. No go on……let it rip.
