Gross judgemental error

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 By tube he arrived at White Hart Lane
Brandishing a travel card, signalling the beginning of a tumultuous reign
The saviour who would again make the mighty cockerel crow
You see this once mighty club had reached an all time low
‘I vill bring back the glory days”, the mood was bullish
As the faithful licked their lips with utmost relish
But the Gross reign was the personification of a full scale disaster
The cracks were deep, more was needed than just plaster
A respectable reputation earned at Grasshoppers Zurich
All burnt to cinders like a wayward match flick
His outbursts singled him out as a modern day king kong
At least he bought back Klinsmann for a final swansong
With regards to his hollywood looks, many were not keen
Realistically, he would never grace the cover of GQ magazine
In short Herr Gross had proved to be a beligerently lost cube
As he was sent packing, of course on the tube.
