Title Challenge Over?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Its not hard to understand the offside rule,
our challenge is undone by fools,
tyrants in black who often get it wrong*
and yet their ruling stand so strong.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Undone from the outside by underhand
tackles which were surely planned,
ruined, ruined by sheer bad luck,
the Arsenal machine has come unstuck.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Undone from within, from the inside
within our squad some lack resides
Undone, undone I can’t console,
all because some won’t shoot at goal.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Is it over? I’m duty bound to say NO,
duty bound, yet perhaps I know so.
And hope and hope that I am wrong
for we have waited far too long.

Notes

*As in the (possibly fatal) Birmingham game in which Diaby was ONside.
