A Football Association of Disassociation

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Still feeling raw post Cypriot shame
Keenly awaiting, ensuing blame game
Whole country united, “Stan must go”
Irish footballs reached an all time low
The 3 wise men were fair but blunt
Players were poor from Keane to Hunt
To be fair to them, no organization
This can’t be Stauntons true vocation
Do the decent thing say the lynch mob
End our pain, vacate the job.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He’d be stupid to quit said Liam Brady
Her throat was cleared by the Fat Lady
Oscar Wilde crept on to the 6 news
Will we get sense or one more ruse?
I didn’t pick him, it wasn’t my scheme
It wasn’t my world class management team
All ratification will be done by the Board
You’ll never catch us doing things untoward
Slithering forward, like a snake in the grass
Hands are now washed, Buck is now passed

Notes

Surely now Staunton cannot survive as FAI CEO John Delaney washes his hands of Staunton on the National News.
