The Smell of Fresh Panini Stickers

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Remember the smell of fresh Panini stickers
The exhilaration of tearing open the pack
Peeling away at the corners
Cautiously setting them in the lines

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Remember the smell of fresh Panini stickers
And that celestial illuminating emblem
The jewel of the packet
Worth at least a dozen from Dunfermline

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Remember the smell of fresh Panini stickers
The playground bazaar
When all you needed was Ian Rush
You only had two Waddles and another Grobelaar

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Remember the smell of fresh Panini stickers
The nifty tactical swap
Transactions, trades and barter
Final transfers at the old bus stop

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Remember the smell of fresh Panini stickers
Saving up the pennies
The rush to the corner shop
“Another three packets, please!”

I thought this poem would be apt, after the transfer day dealings!
I wonder how many sticker albums Harry Redknapp managed to complete!
