A Christmas Carroll

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 He came down amongst the ‘cockney mafia’
His hair like long and tousled raffia
And whilst we warmed ourselves on coals
Of a sudden he started scoring goals
Hail the big Geordie lad, built like a barrel
For today is born a Christmas Carroll



On the rare occasion of Andy Carroll returning to goalscoring habits for the Hammers v Swansea – December 6th 2014. The ‘Cockney mafia’ is a reference to the somewhat prejudiced way Newcastle fans reacted to the London born ownership and management team at their club just before selling Carroll to Liverpool,.
