Traffic standstill

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 In the outside lane, there’s a lad spoonin’ in breakfast
In the inside lane, there’s a dame, applying make-up in her Beamer *
Stewing in the centre lane, there’s myself, penning
“Stan can – do Robby jobby”
As ever, the inveterate football dreamer


Beamer = BMW

2 hours to cover a 45 minute journey!
Media spotlight on the story that Steve (Stan) Staunton is to get the vacant Ireland manager’s job.
With Bobby Robson as his right hand man.
And Kevin Macdonald on the coaching staff.

Did you hear the one about the Englishman, the Irishman, and the Scotsman?

Some people think the FAI are havin’ a larf –
but I think if Staunton can be mentored in the same way that Mourinho was, Ireland could be onto a winning combination.
