Like Father, Like Son ?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Echoes of that Big Mouth across his muddy ground
In Derby – ordinary players did extraordinary things
To please Brian, such was his magnetism in those
Days of flares and glam rock (with thanks to Peter).
He was the first Special One, now it’s up to the son
Of a legend. Can he, will he do it ? The Boss upstairs
Will shadow him; “hands out of pockets, young man”.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Maybe less shouting, more cajoling these days. You
Just can’t humiliate and belittle millionaires, any more.
They wouldn’t stand for it, Brian. So move on, speak
Softly but surely. Your players won’t Strike for you,
Not in the miilitant sense, anyway…and it’s not homely
Burton. It’s a club with a past, with a history; the Rams
You know. So good luck, Nigel – you’ll need it, for sure.
