Theo (‘Thierry’) Walcott

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The plaudits
Come thick and fast these days
Yet football heroes’ dreams can dissolve
Quicker than salt off the back of a slug
And whilst Theo put in a performance
Worthy of a laurel
Ask ‘Stan’ Staunton
About being yesterday’s news.

Notes

Lots of predicatable ‘England’s Thierry Henry’ being bandied about today about young Walcott’s performance last night, nowt like press and public getting carried away!

The master’s boots are not so easily filled.
