"Seven bums and fourteen legs,
a brazen ecstasy which begs
the question some of us are asking -
is Peter Goulding multi-tasking?"

The draw for the European Championships

Don't think its quite the easy draw everyone is making out. Sure the group is winnable, but I daresay they're saying the same thing in Moscow and Bratislava. Depends which Ireland turns up, I suppose. And remember both Scotland and Northern Ireland came a cropper in Skopje in recent years...
Looking back over my football poems, I can find one about Russia, from our exploits in Euro 88, one about Slovakia from the Staunton era and the famous "I had a Macedonia."
Strangely the football teams of Armenia and Andorra have yet to inspire me to verse
