Sorry cop-out

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 No such thing as a rest day!

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 The reserves will get a good run out today:
Washng, ironing, hoovering
Emptying the bins, cleaning windows
And some good saves – at Tesco

Kick about with the kids
Kudos with the wife
Bar-b-q al fresco

On the teamsheet for tomorrow:
Beer, sofa, remote control –
Kicking off with the obligatory tv dinner

14 Leave a comment on verse 14 0 But injuries and suspensions
Have seen some major casulaties;
No Rooneymania, no Bending over Backwards for Beckham
And we can tearfully discount, England as a winner

17 Leave a comment on verse 17 0 I have to hold my hands up –
Like so many others
I was backing the Argies
Until those post penno bargies

18 Leave a comment on verse 18 0 How could we have discounted ‘Les Blues’?
With Henry, Zidane, Vieira, Makelele et Thuram?
Is it a case of : where age withers
Money dithers?
