Utd & Arsenal, neck and neck 2003

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 like Jack and Jill
they climbed the hill
but all that came tumbling
was rhetoric and rumbling

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 no broken crown
just Shearer’s frown
as the big head plaster
didn’t make him any faster

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 on they trot
and each they plot
yet another caper
to look stronger on paper

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 and though they pale
they daren’t fail
each victory vital
to ascend to the title



title race 2003, in nursery rhyme stylee

coming down to the wire, between Man Utd and Arsenal
with the usual mind games being played out by Ferguson and Wenger

Newcastle kept up a spirited attempt until 5 games to go
Captain Alan Shearer sustained a cut head in the North East derby v Sunderland that required a huge big bandage
