1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 That lad Sturridge, he’s so cool
Clint Hill taken for a fool
Why isn’t his head hung in shame?
This is no longer a fair game

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Adam Johnson’s in the box
Thinking of who he’ll outfox
Ahead Chris Baird and falling snow
Who put him down? We’ll never know?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 A dive inside the Chelsea area?
No, not that cad from far Bulgaria
The Serb removes his leg to show
Daniel Wellbeck, callous throw

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 All the Spurs fans gaily sing
Bale goes marching down the wing
Agger takes his leg away
Here’s hoping he’ll stay up one day.



The game is plagued by cheating but it’s become far worse in recent weeks.

I wasn’t even going to write about it because its endemic but when I saw that Alan Shearer on MOTD last Saturday night condoning Adam Johnson’s blatant dive, that was the last straw.

Cut it out.
