Is There Anything Worse Than……

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 when you know they could play all night
and they still wouldn’t score.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 when the only entertainment is in the banter of the terrace
and not on the pitch.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 when the wind changes direction
and seems to blow the rain directly into your face only.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 when the loss of form is measured
in months not matches.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 when the drive home involves
passing coaches of two-fingered gloating opposition fans.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 when ironic cheers ring round the ground
at the winning of a corner, a free-kick… a tackle.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 when the quality of the subs bench is indistinguishable
from the quality available on the front row of the terraces.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 when defenders leave spaces for buses to drive through
and strikers would be lucky to hit Row Z.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 when your mates decide they’ve had enough
and you have to go up the match all alone.

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 But, worst of all by far, can there be anything worse
than not being able to get a ticket
and having to listen to it on the radio at home?
