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.
