Home Matchday Live Seen Them Given

Seen Them Given

during the Premier League match between Huddersfield Town and West Ham United at John Smith's Stadium on January 13, 2018 in Huddersfield, England.

When goalkeepers are reaching up,
Protection often comes their way,
With soft free kicks for nothing done,
I’ve seen them given, not today.

And tackles when the player’s studs,
Collide with shins, as part of play,
No malice, but a foul for sure,
I’ve seen them given, red today.

That argy-bargy in the box,
As forwards try to break away,
But find themselves brought to the deck,
I’ve seen them given, not today.

Late tackles, when the ball’s not there,
Thus stopping any flowing play,
Are part and parcel of the game,
I’ve seen them given, not today.

The blame is not at Brighton’s door,
They won, at last, a game away,
Nor Huddersfield, who always tried,
I saw them give their all today.
