A Football Poem: Manchester City slay Crystal Palace

What have you been taking Manchester City? You slay that strategy on Crystal Palace!

Playing with someone you subconsciously believe dominates,

One knock down, becomes the comfort zone or the safe place.

The fear on Crystal, quite visible, couldn’t cover what needed to be covered.

The smile on Guardiola vibes, “slay boys this is a walkover”

Divided attention, misplaced concentration, can make you pay heavily.

Will City win be repeated? Not every day we get lucky.

Some days come indeed with good luck, or to some, bad luck.

Kompany? Reminds me of sales, when you just hit target after a long time,

It’s about the numbers, no numbers no next season; Not for Manchester City.
