Its Said In Shed!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Its said in Shed we are well read
In Camus and Genet
We get these looks when we take books
On trains to go away

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Our reading matters to us
As learning is our call
Or else how are we to understand
This game that is our all

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Its words that describe
The wonderfull thrill
You get at every match
Could you say the same for cricket?
I doubt as much

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 So all scribes who give us jibes
About knowing sweet FA
Get out of that bar you write from
To watch us home and away!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 peace.



Just a little stab in the back at the so called hacks who sometimes never even bother to make tracks to matches as they write their stuff from varous bars looking at the bottom of jars! As well as the fact that they assume everybody who goes to’The Football’ is an uneducated yob!

Oh he of little knowledge that comes from newspaper college!
