1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Sitting in the stands at the match
Listening to the fans all around me
Not saying anything myself, just listening
Taking in all of the talk that’s going on.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The chap next to me is an “expert ”
Knows more about the game than anyone
He has an opinion on everything
Even the price of the pies.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The couple sitting in front of me
Moan, and groan, and whinge, non stop
I hear that they are season ticket holders
So I’ve got to put up with them all season.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Behind me sit four teenagers
They don’t appear to be watching the game
Because all they talk about are girls, clubbing,
Fighting, and cars, anything but football.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Glad to hear the half time whistle
Can go and have a beer, and some space
But no, all you hear are moans, groans, whinges
Is it safe to take Paracetemol with lager ?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Back to the seats, and the second half
The moaners have shut up, we’ve scored
Even the teenagers are hugging each other
But the “expert ” reckons it was offside.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Then it’s all back to normal again
The whinging has started up, they’ve equalised
Just like the “expert ” said they would
The teenagers are talking about girls, and clubbing.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Final whistle blows, we hold on for the draw
In the Supporters Club after the match
I spot the moaners, and the “expert” at the bar
There’s so much a man can take, I go somewhere else !



We all have a moan now and then at matches, but some of these supporters never shut up, they have got it down to a fine art !
