At Riverside

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Height of English Summer,
Team of dwarfs,
Hearts of lions.
Not afraid to mix it up,
In physical match.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 McDonald and Emnes linked up
– Boro’s first goal,
Sluggish after interval
Score one – one.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 54th Minute superb through ball,
To Rhys Willams – Boro’s second goal
But unable find the killer.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Portsmouth used three subs
Boro none,
Ninety minutes, three points bagged
– Fans rejoiced, but
Extra time added
Five minutes of nail biting horror
Kanu has acres of space
Boro defended too deep
Dodgy bounce
Another sickening stoppage time goal
Typical Boro
Bagged points lost.
