We’re Smoking!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 After being hotly tipped by three pundits on ITV
A blistering display by Hodgson’s charges
Leave’s the under fire gaffer (what is it with our press?)
To (ignore the knives) and consider getting the cigars out.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 As a totally fired up England
Led by a hot Spur, and smoking Townsend
Quickly stub out any threat offered by Montenegro
Thus lighting up the pathway to The Show in Brazil.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Was there really any need to drag Wilshire
Into the simmering cauldron of a Wemberly night
At the dog-end of proceedings though,
As he quickly ran out of steam, and then disappeared
In a puff of smoke.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Meanwhile Joe Hart the tip to be No 1 this summer
Kept his head (‘n’ shoulders)
Dispensed with that ashen face of late and did nothing
To draw any undue attention to himself!



A Big Up goes out to Roy and the lads. Blinding!

Thanks for the kind and generous words of support, they’re greatly appreciated.

Go well, be lucky and keep smiling.
