Mac the Fox

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Maclaren does a U – turn
Screeching of his tyres
Miles away was heard.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 “It’s not a gimmick!” the England boss insists.
“Beckham the player
I’ve selected,
Not Beckham the showman” says Mac.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 With the words
“Beck’s will be the star
In Tallinn against Estonia”,
The old fox
Not only kept the fans off his back
Against Brazil at Wembley
And also keeps his job
Until after the match against Estonia.


In response to critic who regard Steve McClaren as a novice.
