A Football Poem: Let’s All Hail Pep Guardiola

A derby at Old Trafford,
with two Manchester
Both Man City and Man
United – will they use
their subs?

Mourinho verses
Guardiola, are fierce
rivals, that’s for sure,
But there can only be
one winner – the game
won’t be a bore.

Will Wayne Rooney
prove his doubters
And win the game
for Man U – and sing
a cheery song?

The atmosphere is
electric – as both
teams both want
to win.
But tempers on the
pitch, really do wear

Even the referee –
is feeling so divine,
But the referee’s
assistants are
stressed, their job’s
are always on the

So the game has now
kicked off – I will
now predict the score,
A two one win for
Manchester City,
who could ask for

This is a little setback
for Mourinho’s football
They cannot win every
game – that’s within
your dream!

But both teams are
still good friends,
as they shake hands
and give a smile.
But deep down in
their soul – they want
to run a mile.

Hail! Hail! Hail! The
Manchester City win.
Now let the good days
start – and losing is
a sin!

Pep Guardiola, is
smiling – and has
every reason to
He knows by this
result – he has nothing
at all to fear.
