Leeds United 2015

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Tallest floodlights now long gone
Plastic seats to sit upon
No more standing, no more crush
Three course meals and corporate plush

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Robot turnstiles, insert card
Behave yourselves or else you’re barred
Pricey programmes, balti pies
Players’ wages on the rise

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Segregation, us and them
GFH and Bates FM
Massimo, Italian gent
Football League insist he’s bent

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Massive East Stand sparsely filled
Was it worth the cost to build
West stand, Elland Road and Kop
The dreary trudge back to the top

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Fanzine culture, made its mark
Fanned an anti-fascist spark
Noel Blake and Vince Hilaire
Strength and power, skill and flair

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Social media, Twitter Whites
Blogs and Facebook bragging rights
Damned United, streaming live
Merchandise subscription drive

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Still the passion, still the pain
Sunshine, thunder, wind or rain
Come what may we’re always there
Dirty Leeds – our cross to bear
