Another One Bites The Dust.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Over morning tea or coffee
A decision’s just been made
Where a gaffer’s to be shown the door
After barely seventeen games.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Did local butcher have the casting vote
When this manager got the chop
Or did some rich kid in a cashmere coat
Use boardroom clout to stop the rot?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Who knows what really happened
To be honest do we fans care?
That boardroom clique is sacrosanct
Who knows, what goes on in there?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 If there’s four or five teams in the hunt
For Holy Grail that’s called the title
Why did a mid-table boardroom take a punt
On novice Paul, for it’s Prem survival.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Was to over react really necessary
Is the trapdoor about to slam?
Only weeks ago, Paul Ince impressed said clique
Now he’s the sacrificial lamb.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 What about the plight of upcoming managers
Is there a future in our game for them
Or like Chelsea will we always turn to a foreign handler
To bring us fans the success, that we crave for in The Prem?

Notes

Seventeen games. Can Paul Ince really be judged on his ability, as a manager, to look after Blackburn Rovers over such a short period of time?

Most fans know that if the results ain’t coming, then this time of the year is when the axe is gonna fall on some-one’s napper, so that the new bloke (who ever he may be) has got time to get said club out of jail, before the end of the season.

What does the last few weeks tell us about the new crop of managers in our game?

Are we heading toward a monopoly in The Premiership of foreign coaches, being as Paul Ince has just lost his job at Ewood, then how many managers of teams positioned near his former side are about to join him and become part of the seasonal cull?
