Unbelievable tekkers!!!!!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Like many, I’m a battle hardened ol’ pro –
not as in the paid echelon of the game type of pro
but more as in erstwhile player
and full on, full time fan

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 It takes a lot
to get me out of my seat.
But every now and then
even I
sad cynic as I am
get pleasantly surprised
with an OMG moment
“Did you just see that!?”
“I don’t believe it!!”
“WOW!”
“Blimey, I’m glad I witnessed that!!”

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 And just like Roy –
it would have been preferable
to see it done
against different opposition –
but you have to hand it to the lad
in fact I doff my cap
to Zlatan Ibrahamovic
who had me up and hopping around
just like when Gordon Banks made THAT save
just like when Zola clipped in his fancy flick
just like when Denis Law had his back-handed back-heel moment
just like when Carlos Alberto finished off the ultimate team goal
just like when Marco van Basten, had us gaspin’
just like when, Cryuff turned
just like any peach of a Pelé pearl
just like Zidane’s final bow

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 but they didn’t make immediate waves
across the twittersphere
or immediately acquire ‘ledge’ status
in social media circles
and this is my only attempt to ‘like’ it

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 But to prove I’m not an ol’ dinosaur
and can get with the program…

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 So by jingo
I’d better update my lingo
And join in with the other rubber-neckers…..

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Unbelievable tekkers!!!!!!!!

WOW!!!

Zlatan Ibrahamovic scores all 4 goals as Sweden beat England in Malmo, in a friendly, 4-2.

But that last goal !! 30 yard bicycle kick!!!!
