Lost The Plot?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Chavasse Park
Stood high on the banks
Singing his praises
Offering our thanks

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Cardiff, Dortmund
He never walked alone
The hero then
He was one of our own

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 When illness befell him
The tributes came
Life is more important
Than any football game

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The “oxygen” for him
A mission to make us great
Supporters unforgiving
Point the finger of fate

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 “We’ll never be Champions.
He’s done all he can”
Ridicule was to follow
For a brave and gentle man

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Graffiti and banners
Signs of the times
“Lost the plot” soundbites
One of many media crimes

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 The team he left behind …
Was it really that poor?
Ask the Milanese
They know the score

Notes

For Gerard Houllier, about to win the French League Title with Olympique Lyonnais and in the Quarter Finals of the Champions League. I hope they win it for him.

Merci beaucoups.
