studded with glory

keep saying it
try to get used to it

the bells chime….

for the first time!!!

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 just when it looked like
we had history repeating
and the usual bleating
and blaming the cheating
up steps big Jordan
and with Pickford competing
the curse we’re beating
and booking our seating
at a Quarter-Final meeting!!

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Hands together…

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 We prayed against for the tease of pennos
We prayed that Cuadrado had a mare
We prayed that James would be injured
And that Kane played without a care

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 We prayed that Pickford didn’t have to pick
Any ball out of a net
We prayed that Rashford wouldn’t be rash
And that we all had a winning bet!

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 We prayed that Walker would be racing
We prayed that Stones would stand tall
We prayed that the Bury Beckham
Could bend it around a wall

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 We prayed that Ali wouldn’t dally
We prayed that Hendo would keep it tight
We prayed that Sterling would cash in
But above all
We prayed that we’d win the good fight!

Notes

Tuesday 3rd July, 2018

England 1-1 Colombia
England won through 4-3 on penalties – the first time ever! (at a World Cup).

Someone listened to (most of) our prayers!
Now:
All join hands on Saturday!!!

Pickford, Kane, Trippier – the stand-outs for me.
I also thought Raheem Sterling had a great game, answered a lot of knockers.
