Live for moments –
glorious goals, leg stretching saves.
Panic over dramas –
fights for possession, triumph and trophies.
Watch from our sofa
(beer and insults in hand)
edge of our seat, knuckles bitten to bone.
Ninety minutes of heaven and hell.
Emotions rubbed raw, cut
and bruised heart for the sake
of success that is not of our making.
We’ve screamed better tactics,
begged for certain subs,
but we’re miles away,
no influence at all.
