Grandmasters

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 They are like two grandmasters,
Ferguson and Wenger –
Not to rule out
Liverpool for a moment –
But look at them. The absolute
Peaks of their profession,
Facing each other like
Those Cold War combatants
Thirty years ago.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Three titles and The Treble for Man U
Since Arsene last touched silverware.
But nobody is calling Arsenal boring any more.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Sir Alex has his mind games sorted out.
Remember Kevin Keegan? Use the media
Or it will eat you up and spit you out.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 My money’s still on Arsenal, because
Four times on the bounce is just impossible.
Or is it? We’ll know soon enough.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Meanwhile, they face each other down,
Ferguson and Wenger, like two Grandmasters
Aiming for the ultimate. Checkmate.
