Boredom

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Going for promotion is exciting
Trying to nick a play off place
Even fighting a relegation battle
Is better than nowt to play for.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 My team has got the points in the bag
Safe near the middle of the table
But it’s more interesting and lively
When every game is a six pointer.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 You’re listening out for other games
Sporadic cheers breaking out
Nerves are stretched and taut
Fingernails chewed to the quick.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 You remember what it feels like
To escape relegation by one point
Memories of a final day great escape
Or you got promotion with a goalless draw.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 So enjoy those final day occasions
Embrace all those ups and downs
Because it’s a lot more exciting
Than a team going through the motions.

I have to admit it, I’m a little envious at teams and their fans with something to play for now, either at the top or the bottom.
It can be nerve wracking, but when your team gets the desired result, it is great. Since my club realised the play offs were out of reach, they have bored us rigid with lacklustre performances, they are already lying on the beaches !
