VILLA-NELLE

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Do not play Angel out wide left or right,
Delaney’s head will drop at close of play.
Fade, fade again with fourth place out of sight.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Though Sorensen and Moore will keep it tight,
Because they have no target they will say:
Do not play Angel out wide left or right.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Good players, in position, may shine bright
But lack of service makes them go astray,
Fade, fade again with fourth place out of sight.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Solano trapped, then set the ball in flight,
But saw too late that Pablo was away.
Do not play Angel out wide left or right.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 When Hitzlsperger’s shot soared like a kite
Poor Djemba-Djemba knew he’d rue this day.
Fade, fade again with fourth place out of sight.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 And you, O’Leary, promised us the heights.
Instead of lifting cups we kneel and pray.
Do not play Angel out wide left or right.
Fade, fade again with fourth place out of sight.

An old poem that’s well past its sell-by date.
Couldn’t resist the opportunity to use the title, though.
A big assist from Dylan Thomas there.
