The Physio

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The glory of football
In the matches we love
The breath-taking goals
The tip of the glove

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But a club is a body
Of myriad parts
The backroom the boot room
Not just its stars

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The steel of the midfield
With strength to endure
But the back of the physio
The strongest of all.
