The perfect poet (as footballer)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 There’s poetry in his toes
Verse in his feet
A cadence to his canter
And purpose to his beat

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 There’s a tempo to his torture
A rhythm in his running
An ode could explode
With a couplet to his cunning!

dedicated to all the jinking wingers who have excited over time –
Stanley Matthews, George Best, Charlie Cooke and Jimmy Johnstone, among many, stand out,
but Pat Nevin is my own personal favourite.

Cristiano Ronaldo looks set to join that list.
