The Usual Suspects

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I have to say I didn’t choose the Netherlands.
I thought that Italy would be their ‘better thans’.
But all the other three
are still the pool picks I did see.
if I’d have picked La Roja, I’m sure I’d have wetter hands.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 You didn’t need a crystal ball for Germany,
and though the tactics of Brazil are hurting me,
not like we haven’t seen a
side who can’t beat Argentina.
Pride will only serve to guide the hosts to third. You’ll see.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 So, now we’re left with suspects who are usual.
The only doubt’s the one has Neymar’s shoes to fill.
And when the tale is fuller,
it’s just Messi. It’s just Muller,
and Germany will triumph with its twos to nil.

Notes

This tournament, as great as it has been, only ever really teases for places 2-32. The F8 meeting is coming to a close. Is membership open or closed? TM
