I need a more scientific approach,

I’ll hire a foreign gentleman,

the media will love him,
and his continental game.
He’ll come in — with sexy tactics,
do away with the British graft,
so sod off Mr Manager
while I go and have a laugh. ”

REMEMBER THE YEAR WE WENT UP TO THE PREM?

AND YOU MADE ME SIGN A CONTRACT,
UNTIL MARCH OF 2010.

17 Leave a comment on verse 17 0 SO I’LL MOVE ONTO ANOTHER CLUB,
AND PRACTICE MY FOOTBALL CRAFT,
AND WHILE I CASH MY CHEQUE EACH WEEK,
IT WILL BE ME ‘AVING THE LAUGH.”
