……TO HOLD THEM AT ONLY 4-0 !
(My first non-political , ’sporting’ post : tongue-in-cheek , as you’ll notice but , if we can’t slag ourselves then we’re in worse condition that we thought we were !)
The two lads that work with me on this blog are in the depths of despair as I write this : they are now listening to some soccer pundits/’experts’ on the television who are desperately attempting to explain why it is that this Free State soccer team have just lost 4-0 to Spain - apparently , it is mostly someone else’s fault !
I can safely predict that there will be HUGE demonstrations of relief in the streets of this ‘alice-through-the-looking-glass’ State tomorrow and that a State-wide holiday will be declared by the losers - the ones in Leinster House , that is - in recognition of the fact that the team only lost by four goals , and not by the 27 that Spain deserved.
Anyway : we haven’t lost everything in regards to the soccer talent and skill that ‘our team’ possess : I believe that Robbie and those he takes to the pitch with will at least be declared the ‘First Team To Be sent Home’ , and no-one can now take that ‘victory’ away from us. Not even Robbie and Co, it seems… !
Thanks for reading - and no more ’sporting posts’ from now on - promise….!
