Buy Buy

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 When I was a kid
A football shirt was hard to find
The two sports shops in my city
Sold hockey sticks and shin pads
Nothing fancy, nothing ‘designed’

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Best you could hope for was a scarf
Knitted by your Gran in the wrong shade of green
and the wrong kind of yellow
And it had pockets and a sleeve
Just right for a fashion conscious teen

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Nothing to buy and no cash to buy it
Those were the days, fervent passion
There was no club shop, no merchandise
No frills or fancies – just fans
I’d like to buy goals but they’re rationed

Notes

To avoid relegation from the Premier League, Norwich City have to score goals against Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and/or Arsenal. ‘Bye then Prem, see you again some time…

It has to be said that City are as likely to score against the above four teams as any other team in the league. Exactly. ‘Bye then.

We are not resigned to relegation but fans are asking if the club is going to issue white flags and brown trousers for the next home game.

Gosh isn’t a week a long time when you’re hovering just above the drop zone?
