The table doesn’t lie

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It’s neck and neck at the top
A thrilling two way tie
The rest can only watch and wonder
For the table doesn’t lie

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Advantage to the holders
As two tense teams vie
A superior goal difference might tip the balance
For the table doesn’t lie

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But we chasers mustn’t relent
So far we’ve tried and tried
It’s not for us to give a fig
That as yet the table hasn’t lied

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 We must hope and pray for a slip up
Playing for more than just our wounded pride
So that we might be improbable winners on the last day
Of the infamous season the table lied!

Notes

Season 2007 / 2008

Two games to go : Utd & Chelsea level on points,
Holders Utd have a superior goal difference

Must check my facts – but I don’t think Chelsea have been top of the table once this season? (Hence the last line ūüôā


Editor’s note :

Chelsea were in fact top of the table at the end of August 2007, after 4 games.
