Apology not required

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 There are times when the head’s not right
And the mouth gets muddled
When the truth is disguised
Because the brain is befuddled

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 When the real cause is a miscarriage
Then football’s ‘justice’ is not an issue
Ireland’s mistake cannot be censured
Indubitably. Now please, pass me a tissue



Breaking news … Stephen Ireland issues an apology for the real reason why he returned home, thus missing Ireland’s game vs Czech Republic.

I wondered why the radio reports had quite covertly changed to describing Stephen Ireland’s absence as due to the death of ‘a family relative’ when it had first been widely reported as due to the death of ‘his grandmother’.

My heart goes out to Stephen and his girlfriend at their loss.
