For The First Womanager.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Ain’t you tired of hearing clichés
What could drive you quite insane
Diatribe and lies about bad hair days
Blokes use to try an nullify our brains?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 What’s needed is a woman’s touch
So why not install one as your boss?
Who’ll rule the squad like a mother did or does
With “Oi you, it’s a give and go, then shut yer bleedin gob”

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Should a woman tell you how do it
Would you question her knowledge on the ball?
Fed humble pie (in defeat) would you simply chew it?
Even if, a womanager says “Eat it all?”

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I’m a liberal bloke with a feminine side
Or so my fairer sex mates would say
Whilst our game’s in need of some womanly guile
To bring a secular industry up to date.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 In that last bastion of male chauvinism
At the Sweet F.A in Soho Square
Have they heard of the term blatant sexism?
And what’s more worrying, do they even really care?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 How many Ms A.N.Others (ref) or lineswoman
Would we realistically expect to see
Officiate here in the Premiership next season?
Yet we constantly harp on about respect and equality.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 The day will come, we know it will
When a shattered glass ceiling moves us on
To a team being managed by a minority or even better still
The best applicant suitable for the job.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Karen Brady M.D. over at Upton Park
Almost immediately comes to mind
Had she taken coaching exams and achieved high marks
Would we see her standing along the touch-line?

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Anyway enough of this, coz it really looks
Like we’re way behind the likes of France
Where a team by the name of Clermont Foot
Have given womanager Helena Costa’s career a right kick start!



For Helena Costa. The bright light that shines at Clermont Foot.

Stay well, be lucky and keep smiling.
