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.
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.
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.
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.
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 ?
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.
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.
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 !
