Count To Ten & Count The Clichés

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 keep your feet upon the ground
the plans of mice and men
are worse than all the clichés here
breathe and count to ten

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 try to curb emotions
nothing’s cast in stone
don’t say that it’s over yet
keep your dreams in tow
don’t celebrate too early
the die is not yet cast
wiser to remember
lessons in the past ~
don’t live in the future
keep your powder dry
many a slip twixt cup and lip
we’ll know by and by
and do refrain from saying
you feel it in the air
wake me when it’s over
pinch me when we’re there

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 don’t cross bridges early
see what Winter brings
last word’s not been spoken
‘til that lady sings
not the time to speculate
one game at a time
keep on doing what we do
it’ll work out fine
we’re not down to brass tacks
season isn’t done
put that ol’ champagne on ice
battle’s not yet won
keep on digging out results
never change your tune
deja vu will never do
don’t let’s peak too soon

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 so keep your feet upon the ground
the plans of mice and men
are worse than all the clichés here
just breathe and count to ten

Chester 1 Forest Green Rovers 2 ~ 03.09.16

About keeping your feet on the ground really or any of those classic football ‘don’t get carried away’ clichés you/your manager/pundits can come up with. After a defeat and a draw and bolstered by some fine new attacking-minded players FGR make it 6 wins in a row v Chester away .

Now in their 19th year in this League, they will once again think and ask themselves …is this the one? Scary shades of last season when FGR won their first 8 National League Vanarama Conference in a row, ended up 2nd to Cheltenham and still missed out in the end losing 3-1 to Grimsby, who finished 5th in the Wembley Play Offs . ( Only one go up automatically from this league, the next 4 fight it out in the play-offs. Cruelty personified.)
