Teenage Kicks

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 So England go on through
while playing not that well,
can they lift the trophy ?
only time will tell.
Yet with only two goals scored
but an impressive clean sheet,
they aren’t a fluent attacking side
yet becoming hard to beat.
But Southgate’s looking to the future
with youngsters full of tricks,
in Jude Bellingham and Bukayo Saka
it’s not old heads but teenage kicks.
Now for the knock out football
will the Three Lions go on the attack,
or remain defensively minded
be rigid and tight at the back ?
They’ll be playing again at Wembley
verses Germany, Hungary, Portugal, or France,
I’d fancy them against the Magyars
but the others could lead us a merry dance.
But football is a funny old game
anything can happen as we all know,
it’s like being a long suffering Coventry City fan
you learn to go with the flow.
So can England win the Euros
and leave us supporters on a high
or will it be here we go again
it’s been like watching Crispin’s paint dry !

Notes

Inspired by Crispin’s poem here’s some verses on England’s Euros journey so far. I still can’t see them winning the tournament, but stranger things have happened as I remember Greece shocking the football world. Fingers crossed !

 

Editor Note; Actually my poem was inspired by your poem ‘Here We Go Again’ Kev!  Crispin
