Rhyme Seven of the Hyundai A-League

-

A round full of action, a week full of thrills

A plethora of drama and a couple of spills

Round Seven saw football that was memorable and tough

Surrounded by games that were forgettable; rough

The Perth Sydney match looked a cracker pre game

But both teams failed to light up their flame

Chances were rare as both went the retreat

Some blamed the tactics, most blamed the heat

Perth sweltered through a hot summer’s day

Leaving Arnold fuming about the scheduling of play

None the less Sydney remain in the four

Keeping up with pace setters Victory and Roar

Perth on the contrary have now slipped quite low

Given expectations this was a very a big blow

Their one win has come at home to Adelaide

A team so poor at present, even rhymes don’t fit

But enough of the negative, there was good stuff I say

The Pheonix and Wanderers produced a dazzling display

It was tense and mostly level all through the night

Before Bridge unleashed mayhem near the end of the fight

The crowd reacted strongly with a thunderous roar

His goal meant their winning streak extended to four

Victory were impressive early in their clash on Thursday night

Before having to withstand a mini Mariners fight

Finkler was devine with two goals in the first half

His second a screamer, a scorcher, a laugh

The ball curved majestically round the six man wall

Many assumed this goal would trigger a Mariners downfall

But the men in yellow fought and persisted till the end

Their determination proof this team can still ascend

Seven rounds are now complete but the journey has just begun

Will the title go to Melbourne, Sydney; Perhaps anyone?

Even strugglers Adelaide can overcome their position

Although it will take hard work and a possible transition

So as I say goodbye today and conclude until next time

Here’s my final message, I guess my final rhyme

Support the football passionately but avoid being conniving

And even if you do support too hard, it won’t be as bad as drink driving
