In Memory of Phil O’Donnell

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Getting ready for the footy
Packed scarf and tickets
On the way

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Getting ready to play
Packed kit and boots
Team bus arrives

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 On the terrace banter
Meet up with mates
Programmes and opinions

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 On the pitch sorted
Everyone ready players warm up
Waiting for the whistle

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 After the game back home
Win or lose whatever happens
There is always next week

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 After the game no one speaks
Win or lose it doesn’t matter
Life and death is more important than football.

Notes

RIP Phil. Thoughts and prayers with your family and friends at this sad time.
