Adios T.C. Who’s He?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Sticking it to a fading giant bereft a fight
On a rain-swept Stamford Bridge last night
The home side come to realize their class
Revenge is sweet, so the saying goes,
On a former custodian, once kept goal
Deemed now as a right snake in the grass.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Another night, shooting sights aligned
The old adage…take your bleating time,
Five or six at least might have blitzed their sodden net?
Pay-back to a, let me take a hike, or I’ll go on strike,
Sloped off to Madrid, like a tea-leaf in the night
Us paying Partisan’s, in the stands won’t let forget!


Leaving us like a Lover spurned
Ain’t no way to say goodbye?
Plus a refusal to play, we later learned
Turned us off this Belgian guy.

Tea-leaf. Rhyming slang for thief.


Stay sage, Bode well. Adios T.C y Real.
