Can you hear the Drums?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Revered and adored
Listless and bored
Hodgson to the sword
Form now restored

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Sudden form upturn
King Kenny’s return?
Or agent head turn
Latter, I’d discern

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Nicknamed the kid
Came from Madrid
£35 million quid?
Insulting first bid

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Your Interest expressed
Spent Friday depressed
Void of all zest
Then transfer request

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Liverpool spurned
For London you yearned
No 9 jersey burned
50 million we learned

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Oligarchic financer
Wages enhancer
Agents the cancer
What is the answer?

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Your colour now blue
Get a lion tattoo
Decorum undue
Have a careful debut

Notes

Sometimes this football business just gets you down.
Adios Fernando.
