Its not all to do with money
Though money can buy the best
A brand new car or second hand? Its irrelevant
But the driver? Thats the test.
Open cheques have signed some dreck*
In recent seasons past
But the manager is the catalyst
Tis he who sets the cast
Like a sculptor he moulds, then shapes,
The team he wants to see
Not all gaffers have this vision
It seems pretty plain to me
How many teams are nearly bankrupt
Its not just two or three
Blinded by a visionary
Whose illusions we can’t see?
The boss gets fired, a new ones hired
With a jigsaw thats not finished
The new bloke has to sort this out
Whilst watching where they finish
Each team has a budget
That the board veto to spend
Its not always spent wisely
As is the current trend
When things go north
As they can of course
Do the players take the can?
No, its the manager
With the p45 in his hand!
