Eight Out Of Ten?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 As the beautiful sight of the blue and the whites
Warmed up on a newly laid pitch
I paused at gate eight with a few of me mates
In awe at its lushness so rich

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 As me seat came in view, I was puzzled just who
Had left an envelope on me seat
Were they advertising next seasons increases already?
If so me heart near missed a beat

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 T’was with some trepidation and a slight hesitation
I opened the envelope quick
T’was not about an increase in the seat prices next term
But a bunch of score cards very thick

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Each one was like the ones on the telly
That one would see in say the Olympics
You know the ones I mean where the judges deem
Who’s dived properly or who’s flopped on their bellies!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Can a fourteen stone geezer be pole axed by a breeze sir?
To obtain what’s a quite unfair pen
Will we soon see the day when both sets of fans have a say
In accompanying a red card with a white a card
Saying “For diving he gets eight out of ten”?



As Alan Mac has already suggested this is getting right out of order. Didier Drogba had scored two goals at the Bridge yesterday when just near the end of the game he was hustled out of getting a hat-trick by Richard Dunne who was just too strong for him.

Drogba went down like he’d been shot holding his face, I’ve not seen the replay, so I can’t say if he was genuinely hurt but the home fans just started to boo him for not getting up and getting on with it. In the meantime we all started to sing the praises of the late sadly departed Peter Osgood who had lumps kicked out of him and never complained, cos Drogba was on the deck as if pole axed for so long!

Big up to the Chelsea fans for booing him, we don’t like to see the opposition doing this kind of thing so it’s high time we started having a pop at our own players who do it, trying to con the referee and gain an unfair advantage!

Fair play too, to Danny Mills who spoke to the referee to try and stop him booking Joey Cole for a pretty timid tackle that Cole had made on him, all to no avail. But at least he tried.

More of this please.
