The Journeyman

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 knows he can’t sustain his pace
over ninety-odd minutes,
that’s he best used in cameos
as a last-ditch sub,
when his famous mazy dribble
might rescue a point.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 It’s time to do those UEFA badges
and turn from the wise old pro
into the Gaffer’s right-hand man,
to be learnt from, respected,
subject to hilarious practical jokes
and feared in equal measure.
