Red noses on football fans
Boxing Day fixtures

Freezing on the terraces
Worn under a coat

hungover from night before
Hair of the dog please

Your best player on way out
Gutted once again

Now he’s gone to his new club
Better leave it blank

So why then has he left us ?
Something wrong somewhere

Football season very long
Rollercoaster ride

On up the Championship
Keeping positive

Hope your team brings you some joy
