MANAGERS

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The only loyal managers
are the crap ones.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Ardiles took us to Wembley-
then forgot to get back on the coach!
(Should have counted his legs
then we’d have known he was a cockroach!)

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Fat Ron brought up the Jewellery Quarter
then sold off our two biggest gems-
took us to the edge of greatness;
left us in the heart of darkness.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Hartford promised us a Kingdom
but then left us for a Queen.
He saw us as a stepping stone
but no longer to be seen…

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The only loyal managers
are the crap ones.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Bye bye Buckley and Burkinshaw-
off you pop back to Huddersfield and Grimsby.
Thanks Saunders, for selling class
and replacing them with the dross of Division Three.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Bobby Gould- you were so bad
you deserve a verse all of your own:
so bad we cheered the opposition
so bad we couldn’t beat Hartlepool at home!

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 You think I’m joking?
I only wish I were.
One sad state after another.
I should know, I was there…
