Champions League Haiku

 src=
The first leg of the semi-finals are here and the papers are dominated by Chelsea's trip to Liverpool; with the little matter of Barcelona's game against Manchester United to come. What better time could there be for a second ill-advised attempt at football haiku. After the first attempt at poetry Squarefootball was hacked, with the article database irretrievably trashed within a week by a far eastern ninja crew. So this may be the second and last of its kind!

Reds: been there, done that
Want to be outsiders, but ...
Know that's just an act

First leg at Anfield
Can end a tie, ask Inter
Confidence revealed

**

Chelsea are dreamin'
But need a goal to get to
Moscow with Roman

Avram wants trip too
So what price a Lamps special
Off a shin or two

**

TH tries sulking
'I'm not the Ars'nal Henry'
True, you're not scoring

Still Barca show glee
Ignore the struggling Frenchman
They do have Messi

**

Ferguson needs more
He always does, always will
Looks to superstar

Viva Ronaldo
Time to dominate big time
New El Beatle, no?
