The Tartan Army

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 What fate befalls
The brave and the bold
Busby Stein and Shankly
Watch from heaven’s terrace
Along with the eyes of a nation
Newly emerging

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 From the chrysalis
Of Bremner Dalglish Johnstone
Names etched on hearts and boots
No longer a laughing stock
But feared contenders
Argentina long forgotten

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 And now Italy
Football’s gatekeepers
Unbending resolute
Rehearse ‘catennacio’
The stage prepared
The curtain rises
Play on….



This match in November is massive.
