You’ll never sing alone

Louis Tomlinson played for Doncaster Rovers reserves tonight.
For those who don’t know (how could you not?), Doncaster Rovers is a football team (soccer, if you’re trans-Atlantic) in the second tier of the English League. And their reserve team is the club’s second team; those not quite good enough to be in the first team. In the second tier. So second squared, really. This is football to the power of four, where the bigger the number, the worse it is.
Who’s Louis Tomlinson?
I’ve no idea.
Yes I have, really, because I heard it on the news. He’s a member of the boy band, One Direction.
Someone came from Mexico to watch him play. Mexico? People don’t come from Mexico to Doncaster to watch the first team play. So what is this strange power Louis wields? I don’t understand it, but then, I’m old. I’m old enough to have a theory why this came about in the first place.
I think this is Yorkshire having a dig at footie rivals in the South. I think this is a revenge attack for a horrible, horrible thing that first happened back in 1987, and then again in 1990.
“Diamond Lights” and “Fog on the Tyne”. Google at your own risk if you’ve no idea what’s going on.
Tottenham Hotspur’s Chirpy Cockerel should hang its head in shame. Letting Hoddle, Waddle and Gascoigne have a go at the UK charts might have seemed like ‘a bit of fun’ at the time (no, it didn’t), but look what it’s come to now.
I think a red card is in order, before someone really gets hurt.
