the Hand of Hurt

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 the goals that hurt –
the ones you concede
they stain and sully
and make you bleed

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 the goals that hurt –
the ones so jammy
underserved and so offside –
a double whammy

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 the goals that hurt –
that lose the cup
that make us sick
and then hole up

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 the goals that hurt –
all the more
are the ones received
to the loudest roar

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 the goals that hurt –
they bring such shame
and all we do
is apportion blame

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 the goals that hurt –
they cut to the core
and all they do
is leave us feeling sore

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 the goals that hurt –
oh so cruel
for us – calamity
others drool

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 the goals that hurt –
the ones so cheated
especially where
justice is never meted

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 the goals that hurt –
like the Hand of God
Diego’s not deity
but a little sod

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 the goals that hurt –
“la main de dieu”
so cruel and heartless
it bids adieu

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 the goals that hurt –
pain won’t subside
and yes Thierry
our respect has died

Get over it ….

was Roy’s message.
Sorry suddenly seems to be the easiest word.

First Thierry apologises on the pitch to Richard Dunne, and the next day to the public for an “unintentional” handball.

And now today Roy Keane apologies for his rant on Friday.

Some apologies just ring so hollow …..
