United We Grieve

by Venky

Losing to Palace and coming up cropper against a determined Hammers

Failing to score against Newcastle, and against Astana just about saving the Bloopers;

Now trailing Bournemouth with 45 minutes left to play

Ineffable is the grief caused by Man U to us supporters as they totter and sway

If this calamity continues I will be rendered a nervous wreck;

Unlike the courageous boy who stood atop the burning deck

Brilliant Venky. And I know for a fact, for the devoted football supporter, ineffable is the grief when their team is hammered.

Thanks Much! It is exasperating indeed to see your side go down a dark tunnel.

Hey, my side. I’m no supporter of any side. Football’s not my thing πŸ™‚
