What A Difference A Week Makes?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Reel them Blue flags in
Take it on the chin
Standing in a down-pour spare a thought
For those that never came,
Who couldn’t bear to brave such rain?
They’ll never know emotion of this sort.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Look up to darkened skies
Through gutted what if eyes
I’d have bet me house our Frank was sure to score
It just wasn’t meant to be
I mean. They scored all three
If Frank had scored we might have lucked a draw.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Clap your hands to praise the boys
In a cacophony of noise
To let them known such dire days are rare
When next we win again
We’ll sing and cheer their names
We’re still on top, it’s them what put us there.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Last week we were it
The title in our mitts
According to which tabloid hack you read
This week-end we’re also rans
And all the best laid plans
Have gone amiss and title dreams are dead.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 There’s a long, long way to go
Who’ll win it? No one knows
A season isn’t judged on just one score
Next weeks? Another day
We’ll turn up come what may
This battle may be lost but not the war.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 As the rain comes teeming down
In an up north sodden town
We head towards the exits with our hopes
That we’ll rise up to win again
Play on through barriers of pain
As Ancelotti shakes hands with that Sparky bloke!



I dedicate the above poem to both sets of fans at Eastlands yesterday. Some of whom must have got a right soaking. As according to Alan Green on the wireless, “there’s bit of uncovered seating at one end where the fans get treated to free pac-a-macs” for having to sit there in the rain?? Is this true? Free raincoats with a match ticket..what next?
Cushions, blankets and proper toilets.

Judging by what was shown on the telly last night, and listening to the wireless earlier in the day, Chelsea could have been at Eastlands for a week taking shots at The City goal and not scored. So we’ll just have to put this away defeat down to that great poet…Larkin.
