Were white hankies waving in the breeze
At the Bernabeau last night?
As Gunners lead by Thierry Henry
Blasted home team out of sight
The scoreline not a true reflection
Of the chances Arsenal had
To embarrass said Galatico’s
In their fortress like type pad!
“The first English team to win there”
Said pundits on the screen
As “One nil to the Arsenal”
Rang out o’er hallowed field of green
ZZ resorted to kicking
As the home team were found out
As a rather ordinary La Liga outfit
Was this the Madrid we’d heard about?
Over three thousand Gooners
Pilgramaged to cheer the boys
As their loudly lauded terrace tunes
Echoed over Ultra’s noise
“A young team in transition
That’ll take some time to gel”
Last night those young boys turned into men
As the Bernabeau was quelled
