Do We Count ?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Sponsors for this, sponsors for that; sponsors for
Everything from balls to bootlaces. And they all
Get their mention in every programme. Corporate
Generosity gets priority treatment for pretty much
the whole thing. But we’re still here, in the seats
Every home game – the biggest sponsors of all…

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Offering loyalty and commitment, but not money in
Bucket loads (ticket prices excepting). Do we count ?
We moan and groan, we don’t wear suits and smiles
All the time. We don’t meet the players, we’re kept in
The dark, at arm’s length. Our opinions acknowledged,
But that’s as far as it goes; Such is a fan’s lot in 2007.

No, we don’t.
