Different tears come
At different times
Some gush
And others flood
Some happen when you're in a rush
And some even fall
When you're not in love
These tears can't be classified
There's no need
They're in me

Poem for Andy Cole

You scored my favourite goal
Do you remember the one
The ball came in from the left
Or was it the right
One touch
And the crowd were on their feet
You blinked
And I missed it

Poem for Paul Scholes

The little magician
Popping up where you'd least expect him
Sometimes with his head
Other times his toes
He could use anything
He was such a good technician

Poem for Roy Keane

Your reputation
Went before you
Whenever you took to the field
We were all scared 
You might lose it
But I always knew
You were a puppy
In a wolf's skin

Poem for Ryan Giggs

Expert dribbler
Better than most
You used to drive your mum berserk
Dribbling all the way from Pentrebane
To Whitchurch

Poem for Nicky Butt

The Guv'nor of Gorton
The northerner of South China
The free agent of Preston

Poem for David Beckham

You went to L.A.
For a holiday
They've got some nice shops
And Mickey's just across the Bay
But nothing beats the Trafford Centre
On a Saturday
