The New Year’s Day Fixtures

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I planned to spend the day alone
With Sky Sports
To see the demise of the
Russian revolution
The beginning of their end
Living for Gerrard’s
Finest hour
The Scousers taking all
In front of the kop

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Between live games
I planned to watch the
Scores flashing up
And switch to
Radio five live
Also on the box
To hear the goals go
Into Dean Kiely’s net
A Thierry hat trick
I was willing to bet

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I planned to sit in front
Of the box still
As ‘boro battled ManU
Their old student manager
Showing his old teacher
How to win – again
Giving Sir Alex nada

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 But even on
New year’s day
Things don’t always

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The day was still
The goals were sound
First second and third
Three points all around


a day staring at the screen. ready for the homestretch and many arsenal points (with fewer for chelski)
