Sham let – thine own self be true

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 This is football: to thine own self be true,
And you must follow, as the bonus the pay,
Thou canst not then be false, to the new man-
ager.
Farewell; this guessing season seeks not the truth to be!

Notes

inspired by the unwritten rule in football journalism, that all rumours should link players to follow their managers to new clubs,
witness Chelsea : Mourinho, Ferreira, Deco, Morientes, Carvalho, et al

also inspired by this weekends headlines about Arsenal’s tax dodging bonus schemes
