If I Had A Hammer

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 When we signed Dean Ashton
He was to be the thrust of our attack
The answer to our problems
To score the goals we lacked
We had our England keeper
And Ginger Pele at the back
Huckerby with direct pace
To outrun the chasing pack
The club has become complacent
Support of fans begun to crack
We’ve given all we’ve got to give
It’s time to give the man the sack

Notes

By selling Ashton it seems like the manager and the board consider this season over, while the fans were still aiming at the playoffs. Now that we’re no longer pulling together, I name this ship ‘Abandoned’.

Please don’t let Worthington spend any more money. Very few of his purchases make it to a regular first team spot.
