Forest not Greener for Rob

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Graham Taylor rolls in his Vicarage grave
As he hears how Watford sinned.
Elton puts his head in hands
And sings Candle in the Wind.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The International football break
They now call the Watford Gap
The time it takes to fire the coach
And another one to tap.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Rob Edwards he left Forest Green
To Watford he did go
He thought the Forest would be Greener
How little did he know.
Ten games into the season
From the playoffs one point back
The bozo Pozzos did decide
To give poor Rob the sack.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 They say in New York City
You’re ten feet from a rat or roach
And in other places in the world
You’re near a former Watford coach

Notes

Watford have now fired another coach. The last seven have averaged 17 games. I believe the Pozzo family have had one less coach in their ten year tenure than West Ham have had in their whole history.

A thank you to Crispin for putting the image of my book, “Once Upon a Rhyme in Football” on the home page. It’s 232 pages of nostalgic poems, pictures and short introductions. The book can be obtained at
Amazon.co.uk or just Amazon.com Go to books and put in the title.
Again a big shout out to all at footballpoets.
John
