Twelve Points of Christmas

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 On the first day of Christmas my true love has to be
The beautiful game I know as footie:-

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Twelve strikers scoring
Eleven pairs of studs on flooring
Ten touchline tantrums
Nine tactical conundrums
Eight enormous egos
Seven managers getting the heave-ho
Six free-kicks and corners
Five away fans
Four stands a-singing
Three points Santas bringing
Two half-time pies and a cup of tea
and a fine time to be a Canary



Forget the socks, chocolate snowmen and novelty jumpers – most fans just want three points when their team plays. Seventeen days of Christmas football – that’s a twelve point carrot – be interesting to see who’s sitting next to who at the table after that lot – remember there’s still half a season to go – bring it on!
