It’s The Roon and Ron Show

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 20 minutes left. As tight a 3rd Round FA Cup Tie
As it is ever is when Man United play Villa
With nothing to spare and neither defence
Giving an inch.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But then the cry is ‘Rooney’
And it is as though a secret door
Giving access to acres of space
Has opened in the centre of Villa Park.
Giggs with a lightning cross –
Ronaldo side-foots the opener –
Then Rooney strikes from the edge of the box
A screamer which the keeper didn’t see.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Half an hour after the game
I expect Villa are still wondering
What exactly happened.
