When Cristiano made his sensation return to his former home, Old Trafford from Juventus, Peter Drury was heard saying:
“It is Ronaldo. Manchester United. The Theatre is living its dream. Madeira, Manchester, Madrid, Turin & Manchester again. Reeved in Red. Restored to this great gallery of the game. A walking work of art. Vintage, beyond valuation, beyond forgery or imitation, eighteen years since that trembling teenager of touch and tease, first tiptoed on to the storied stage, now in his immaculate maturity, now CR7 reunited.”
At the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, Drury’s commentary was majestic that fans bowed to his wordplay and commentary after Siphiwe Shabalala scored the tournament’s first goal.
“It’s Tshabalalaaaa! Goal, Bafana Bafana! Goal for South Africa, goal for ALL Africa! Jabulani, rejoice! Bafana Bafana have popped the first cork, on their day of days!”
“𝘐𝘵’𝘴 𝘛𝘴𝘩𝘢𝘣𝘢𝘭𝘢𝘭𝘢𝘢𝘢𝘢𝘢𝘢! 𝘎𝘰𝘢𝘭 𝘉𝘢𝘧𝘢𝘯𝘢 𝘉𝘢𝘧𝘢𝘯𝘢! 𝘎𝘰𝘢𝘭 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘚𝘰𝘶𝘵𝘩 𝘈𝘧𝘳𝘪𝘤𝘢! 𝘎𝘰𝘢𝘭 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘈𝘓𝘓 𝘈𝘧𝘳𝘪𝘤𝘢!”

On the final day of last season, Manchester City made a big comeback against Aston Villa and Drury produced a masterclass poetry that shook the whole globe.
“From the brink of despair, elation. How dare ye who thought they could relinquish the title on the final day. Four titles in the last 5 years for City. A blue bound jaggernaut textbook of buoyancy, the scintillating science of sports, precision engineering, stylish and glossy football. The stuff of stellar champions. Congratulations Man City, the Premier league champions 21/22.”
