We want Change!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 On the one night …
We have a dealmaker living the dream
As envisaged by Martin Luther King

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 And across the pond
An arbiter dashing the dreams
With decisions that sorely sting

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Soon Obama and his cronies
Will dictate the fate of so many
Right across the globe

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Meanwhile the whistle blowers
With their baffling interpretations
Send players early to disrobe

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Change is-a-comin’
For Obama will bring drama
In the good ol’ USA

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Resistance is high
But FIFA must bring consistency
For all on the field of play

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Can we change attitudes in football?
Yes we can!

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 So let’s hear it loud and proud
From every football fan!

I don’t like criticising referees – but –
I’m perplexed after seeing (only highlights mind) last nights Champions League action.
In particular : sending off Deco for taking a quick free kick – where on earth is the advantage to the attacking team?!?!?!
And in the Liverpool game : Stevie G fouls the centre back and wins a last minute pen!
And at least 3 decent shouts for handball against Liverpool and a couple against Atletico, all in the box, no pens given.

Plus –
I wanted to be the first in with a football poem and Obama 😉

Oh alright then (after checking), the first in with a football poem and Obama (as President elect) 😉
