a central midfield – not a slacker –
a centre half, say
send Keane on his way,
and Kean we can flog to the knacker…
When Delph and Iwobi are shifted
and Bernard and Besic are sifted
then Theo and Yannick
we can lose and not panic
it’s not as though either is gifted.
Gomes? I think he could still play,
Virginia & Olsen can both stay,
yet need not be replaced
he can come off the bench now and then, say.
I’d like to see more of young Branthwaite,
Nkounkou and Gordon I quite rate,
(should they lower the tone
they can go out on loan,
which is fair enough in its own way, mate.)
Assuming we get no more frees in,
all the rest – we can keep for next season,
when we scale the great hights
of those cold Thursday nights…
(let’s hope Carlo sees sense in my reason).
