Our first game of a new season
Shown live on Sky T.V.
Kept the attendance down.
But us who made the effort
Us loyal hardcore followers
Got behind the team as you should
The hot weather was a nice bonus
Jackets left behind at home
Some wearing the new shirt.
The new signings bedded in well
Especially the full back from Chelsea
Calling him the next Ashley Cole.
Roy Keane was all hot and bothered
Bet he wishes he was still playing
Said his defenders were too soft.
Glad we held on for the win
But it’s a long long season ahead
It’s a marathon not a sprint.
Still the fans all left happy
Now it’s the Carling Cup
Far too early I reckon.
Still a nice start to the new season
Better to win than lose
Just wish more “fans” would turn up !
