My inbox has been flooded this week, with a message from our division 5 captain Nigel Gardner, catching the eye headed “All bets are off” and then came a clever response from Neville Layhe headed “It’s only a game”.
- Nigel = All bets are off !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
FORGET THE THRILLA IN MANILLA,
FORGET THE RUMBLE IN THE JUNGLE
FORGET MAYWEATHER V PACQUIAO
FORGET LEONARD V HEARNS
FORGET ROCKY V CREED
GET ON DOWN TO THE MALS FOR THE BIG 1.
ITS WHAT THEY’VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR ………………………………
IS THE PRICE RIGHT????
DOES THE RENEGADE PACK A GRENADE???????
IT COULD GET DIRTY, ITS TUESDAY NIGHT AT 7.30,
ITS B v C TO TOP THE LEAGUE,
IS IT THE STEW IN CREWE, IS IT THE PALS AT THE MALS OR FOR SOMEONE WILL IT BE A
BLUB AT THE CLUB
Ringside seats are free. But the drinks aren’t!!!!
- Neville – It’s only a game
It’s civil war down at the Crewe Clubs Clan,
Where they’ll fight it out down to the very last man.
Stone wall attack meets Sicilian kill,
Whilst Roy Lopez wrestles with a Benoni Bill.
If your pawn falls in passing and takes a trip off the board,
And your bishop met a mishap whilst you went to the bar,
Make your knight do a fork before it gets gored,
And centre your castles before going to the war.
After 55 moves when your flag’s about to go,
And everyone’s finished except you and your foe,
Take time to reflect that it’s only a game,
Win or lose come tomorrow you’ll still be the same,
Like me still unheard of whilst searching for fame.
