1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It’s becoming the eighth wonder
of the modern world-
how we can keep on winning
and still stay eighth!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Don’t misunderstand me-
I’d have settled for eighth
at the start of the season
(I’d have bitten your hand off
like a rabid dog after the first three games)
but I can’t help thinking-
we should be top three!
Top scorer should be Hughsie;
promotion should be a guarantee.
The top flight should be where we deserve to be.
Champions League? Just you wait and see!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Or am I getting carried away
by three points on the road
at Gillingham?
And, in reality, will we be
eighth forever?


Mid season, 2001/02 – the year afetr Megson started at the club and hopes of promotion to the Premier League were high….
