Go In Goal?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Go in goal? Upon my soul
All right then, giss them gloves
I’ll take that Harry Gregg
Down a peg or two
Tony Macedo? He’s a mug

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Gary Sprake? He’s a fake
Ron Springett? He’s quite good
Jack Kelsey, Well lets just see?
Frank Swift? He would and could

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Jim Standen gave it all he had
Gordon Banks was lithe and lean
Gil Merrick and his film star looks
Tommy Lawrence was just mean

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 That Bill Brown got quickly down
Peter Bonetti was The Cat
Petar Barota gave me heart attacks
Phil Parkes was where its at

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Bob Wilson? Good as anyone
Gordon West was swell
Peter Shilton? Not impressed
David Seaman, to a couple of chips he fell

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Pat Jennings was as safe as houses
Alex Stepney awesome frame
Willie Foulke was the butt of all them jokes
“Who ate all the pies?” his fame

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Bert Trautmann, brave as any man
Ray Wood was pretty game
But the best keeper of them all?
Lev Yashin was his name
