Charlton 14/8/04

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 What a start!
The towering twins of Okocha and Pedersen
Dazzled the Reebok faithful,
And outshone the Charlton cohorts.
JJ and Henrik, a brace apiece.
The artistry of JJ Okocha
And the incisiveness of Henrik Pedersen.
Four goals to one,
But it could have been a dozen.
Top of the Premiership for twenty-four hours,
Then drop to second
(Purely on alphabetical order)
As Arsenal beat Everton,
Also by four goals to one.
Ah well, such is life at Bolton

Fulham beckons the Travelling Trotters to London
