Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool
A match in which all players excelled, and which we probably should have won, were it not for the annoyingly excellent equalising goal of an ex-Blue. Nevertheless, a game packed with skill and a day which ended in such personal joy.
Saturday 29 September 2018
If Carlsberg did birthdays, they’d do it this way:
A trip to the Bridge on a fine Saturday,
A pretty good game even though we conceded,
But defence in fine fettle was just what we needed.
And afterwards, heading to Babbo to dine,
An evening with friends, some nice food and fine wine.
Then came a surprise that was better than best.
Our Geezer turned up and I truly felt blessed!
To celebrate with me he’d given his time,
And this made my birthday unique and sublime.
I thought I was dreaming, but no, it was true!
The Man Of The Match, and his gorgeous Brubru
Were sitting beside me on a night I will treasure,
Their kindness is something I can’t even measure.
Now, players can sometimes get negative press,
And so this occasion was a time to redress
And show the whole world how a player should be.
My own Carlsberg birthday Luiz gave to me.
