Don’t condemn Dida

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 All order has left the game,
it’s descending into chaos,
the players aren’t the ones to blame,
aren’t scaling heights of bathos.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Before you say he was diving,
remember, if you care,
that when Milan were thriving,
he was hit by a flare.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 No one condemns the Celtic fan,
for slapping a keeper,
the stupid man,
Dida’s a legend not the grim-reaper.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 How can you condemn the victim,
for going down with too much ease,
leave alone the man who’d hit him,
a little respect is needed, please.



the bottom line is pitch invasions are just not taken seriously enough. they endanger the players and are horrendously stupid. How people are having a go at Dida I do not understand, it’s ridiculous, including UEFA, who shouldn’t even be considering punishing Dida. In contrast with all the incidents of over-zealous policing on the terraces last year, this shows a complete lapse in security that is unacceptable. Dida obviously did not fake injury with about 1 minute left in the game.
