The Perfect Save

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The Perfect Save can kill a game,
more so than the perfect goal,
the Perfect Save can change a match,
can shatter outfield souls.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The pursuit of the Perfect Save never dies,
it takes casualties as the game grows,
sometimes it’s safer to settle for less,
as Shilton surely knows.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The Perfect Save is beautiful but dangerous,
sometimes evokes blunder,
showboating by number ones,
that piece of goal-mouth wonder.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The Perfect Save needs the perfect shot,
the save etched with defiance,
Banks v Pele?
That’s the sort of non-compliance
