Surrounded by empty seats
mates not bothering to turn up
even our drummer boy was absent
welcome to the Third round of the Cup.
Still at least I could sit where I liked
and even the stewards were polite
they seemed to enjoy the emptiness
but to me it just didn’t seem right.
Outside there was a big demonstration
our fans wanting the owners out
I felt like I crossed a picket line
when I heard a “come and join us” shout.
But I don’t understand the business side
it just goes over the top of my head
and even though I back what they’re doing
I just want to watch the football instead.
Inside we took a very early lead
so was this going to be our day ?
for an hour we were the better team
then they scored against the run of play.
Then they scored a flukey winner
so that’s us for yet another year
and while the protest was still going on
I said good luck and went off for a beer.
Still we can now concentrate on survival
win some league games and move on up
the main thing is staying in the Championship
anyway we’ve already won the F.A.Cup !
