Will The Real Directors Get Their Fingers Bernd?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Last night helped erase the memories
Of a boring La Liga title win
“We want excitement in our game” said the Real dignitaries
“So Capello goe’s, let’s get Bernd Schuster in”.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A hundred and twenty million euro’s spent
On youth, on flair and class
No more has beens at Estadio Bernabeau
Put out to expensive grass.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 They could have scored a hatfull
On any other night
As Schusters team were magical
To watch, a pure delight.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The manager was an icon
Of out-standing attacking play
Who took no bull from anyone
In his midfield glory playing days.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Will Madrids directors leave Bernd be
To get on with the job in hand?
They’d be wise to recall that when West Germany
Tried to tell what to him to do
He retired with, “That’s it, auf weidersein, I’m off
To pursue my club career in Spain as planned”.



After watching a terrible away performance from Chelsea up at Villa Park yesterday, albeit with some terrific young England prospects in a promising Villa side it has to be said.

I later switched on Sky and caught the Real Madrid match. Madrid were a different class altogether, a real (sic) joy to watch. So much so our son was off to the bookies this morning to have a double on them to win La Liga and the Champions league, and after last night’s quite frightening display of all out attacking football, I for one wouldn’t bet against them, but will the interfering old power crazy board at the Bernabeau let Bernd Schuster get on with and finish the job of building them an exciting new attack minded team for the future?

That remains to be seen from what’s happened in the past.

To mess around with Schuster as the poem suggests is not a good idea as the West German football federation found out to their cost when he refused to play for his country again after a falling out with them and went off to Spain to pursue his domestic club career there, where he went on to become one of the truly great visionary midfield generals of his day a la Gunter Netzer and co.
