Reds Grab Last Gasp Winner

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Scoring a playground goal,
He’s sheer exuberance :
Searing last minute strike
Before the History test –
Roy of the Rovers stuff.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Young man, now dressed in red,
Still finds that drive and pace
For final do or die
And a Champions’ League embrace –
Wayne of United stuff.



(Champions’League Semi-Finals, 2007)
With his looks and exploits, Rooney is ripe to become a 21st. century comic book hero!
