Plea to Thierry Henry

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 S’il vous plait, Thierry Henry
We need your magic today
Dribble thru their defence and
Put the ball away

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Top left, bottom right
Make that net bulge tonight

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Give us at least two –
Maybe three goals
One will no longer do
‘cos Keown is getting old
And Cygan – well, where has he gone

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 There is something in our
defence that we lack
Lauren’s good, Cole is too
But they too prefer to attack
(Sometimes defenders have to sit back)

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 We’re counting on you Monsieur Henry
make that Russian defence pay!!


A poem written before last night’s Arsenal – Lokomotiv match. We needed goals. Thierry was unable to oblige however. Still, a point away isn’t bad!! As for Keown – great match!!
