Played well at the start
Until 2002.
People used to cheer
While they drank their beer,
But now they all shout “Boo!”

Notes

Written after that appalling penalty miss by Ian Harte that sent us crashing out of the World Cup 2002 to Spain. I was 11, and it was that (the world cup, not Ian Harte’s miss) that got me interested in football.
