friendly ire

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Shorey looked assured
Robbo was done by a lobbo
Seaneen cannot be ignored
Micah’s just the jobbo

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But we must not Pander
To the ne’ersayers
We have who we have
Now it’s up to the players



International Friendlies – in preparation for the forthcoming Euro qualifier fixtures

England 1 – 2 Germany
Denmark 0 – 4 Ireland
Bulgaria 0 – 1 Wales
Scotland 1 – 0 South Africa
N Ireland 3 – 1 Lichtenstein (Euro Qualifier)

Germany – last team to beat us at the old Wembley,
first team to beat us at the New Wembley –
How we cling ever more to ’66!

‘Seaneen’ – Irish vernacular for ‘little Sean’ or ‘little John’

Germany’s winning goal scored by their debutante left back, Pander, who struck his shot like a missile from a Panzer

In Ireland, we celebrated our victory in Aarhus, with Madness’s “Our House” played on the radio!
