When It’s Not Your Night.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 On sojourns away
Terrace soothsayer’s say:
“A travelling goal should suffice”.
Then the cynics amongst us
Put you down in the dumps with:
“Yeah but… tonight could be one of them nights”

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 As baying partizan fans
Holding flares in their hands
Give abuse to the boys on the field.
We’ve him protecting the sticks
Makes all kinds of ricks
Thus exposing our Achilles heel.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Then the man in the black
Won’t confirm or detract
That their scorer was two miles offside?
As his partner in crime
Who’s alleged runs the line
Seeks a flagpole behind which to hide.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Then the dug-out erupts
Travelling boss does his nut
At misdemeanour he’s seen on the pitch.
Then confronts fourth official
Him what refs with no whistle
For explanation for what was injustice.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 When fourth ref sheds no light
On concerns or his plight
Will boss angrily storm back to his seat?
Then like us right put out fans
Prepare contingency plans
For the return leg at our place, next week?



I’ve now seen it all, after catching the highlights on the box last night from the Porto v Arsenal and Bayern Munich v Fiorentina ties on the same night in the Champions League! At least I’m glad to say that both beaten teams will have another chance to put matters right in the return legs.

Both referees should be given their cards, one of them was in charge when we played and lost to Barca last season, and the other reffed the Ireland v France World Cup catastrophe in Paris!

Gabriel Marcotti (Ace pundit on ITV) said ruefully that both of the afore mentioned are going to the World Cup, if they are then Heaven help us all.

Our very own Graham Poll was bad enough in the last one but those two jokers from last night really did take the biscuit!
