Time’s up?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It’s the arched eyebrow
That’ll be missed the least
In a results orientated business
Failure is such an unsexy beast

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Where second is nowhere
And fourth the absolute minimum requirement
For this cataclysmic collapse
Could doubtless trigger an early retirement

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 “Carlo, please try Darlo
Carlisle, Oxford or Reading”
Envisaging an animated Abramovich…
“Cos tis away from Stamford Bridge your career must be heading!”


At time of writing :
Dumped out of the FA Cup, losing at home to Everton on penalties
Lying 5th in the Premiership
Admittedly still in the Champions League with a plum tie in the last 16, vs Copenhagen tomorrow:

But confidence at an all-prime low….

(as in, “all-time” would be a ridiculous statement, as we’ve been a lot lower in our history.
But “all-prime” as in where we are today compared to winning the double less than 12 months ago!)
