Ultimate grudge match at the Lane
Elimination game to see who is best
Where no amount of outrage is outrageous
As combatants are put to the test
Not one, but fourteen with previous
Stepped out on the Cockerel’s pitch
Numero uno was the return of the Sol
Followed by countless who’d made the switch
Would the scourge that was Tony Adams,
Fire up Gunner Kanu and Pompey?
Would Defoe bite the bullet and bag three?
Or would it be Harry Kari houdini?
Sean Davies, Kaboul, Peter Crouch
There’s White Hart star Johnny Metgod
Kevin Bond and Jaws Joe Jordan
Sentinels of the first team squad
But if you think the rest got it pretty bad
Think of poor Saint Gareth Bale
Twenty starts and not a win in sight
Pure bad luck, just on a mammoth scale
