In A Fix

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Allegations of impropriety
Meet with fans incredulity
The law of probability
Is that we were beaten fairly

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Can’t understand the to-do
After Norwich-Derby ended 1-2
Mud sticks but so does glue
Surely our result was honest and true

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 It’s not odd that we didn’t win
Accusations made of meddling
It remains our persistent sin
We can’t score goals, can’t knock them in

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 With eyes upon us, we played Wolves at home
Proceedings gone through with a fine toothed comb
Delirious waving of giant hands of foam
We beat Wolves 5-2 to inspire a poem!

Notes

Winning 5-2! That really does need investigating! Why are we so bad and so good all in the same week and sometimes even in the same match. That’s why we love football.

The Norwich v Derby match in October is being investigated by the FA after allegations relating to match fixing and irregular betting patterns were made. Please hope it’s all proven to be without foundation and soon – our game doesn’t need more bad publicity.
