Days Like This (we can do without)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Leading with the elbow –
Not a pretty sight
And all too indicative
Of a mucky modern blight

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 And the fact that it was Rooney
Who landed the blow
Peeves all the purists
And fills us with woe

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 For he knows, and we know
That he is a role model, like it or not
And it’s from the very top
That we have to quell the rot


The title?
My favourite Elbow song ūüėČ

Poem in reference to last weekend’s incident where Wayne Rooney elbowed James McCarthy of Wigan – and got away with it.

Not only on the pitch – but also the FA did not prosecute post-match.
Fergie defended the referee’s decision.

But then showed his true hypocritical self by going apoplectic in midweek when David Luiz got away with body checking Rooney & Hernandez in Utd’s 2-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge.
