1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Only the keeper to beat
but he pulls the ball wide,
how could he miss from there
“has he got something to hide ?”

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 That’s not like him at all
he’s usually mild mannered and fair,
but he’s gone and got sent off
“what the hell’s going on there ?”

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The referee’s having a nightmare
some of his decisions are queer,
now he’s given a dodgy penalty
“come on ref,what’s happening here ? ”

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Only seconds left in the game
they just need to hold on for the draw,
“oh no, he’s put through his own net
what did he do that for ? ”

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 “Is it me just suffering from paranoia ?
but I swear that this match is a fix,
because we’re bottom of the Conference
and we’ve just hit Barcelona for six ! “



I ended it on a lighter note but all this match fixing news is serious stuff.
It makes you wonder how long it’s been going on ?Then again in the sixties several players got jailed and banned for it so it’s nothing new.
But it stinks nevertheless.
