Mr X’s Blue and White Army

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 They said we were ungrateful,
When we sacked Allardyce.
Now Marco Silva cannot say
That he’s been treated nice.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But football is a business,
For sentiment no room,
So poor old Marco had to go,
‘Cos relegation looms.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 “Nil Satis Nisi Optimum?
What is this joke, this jest?
No satisfaction do you get,
You’ll never be the best.”

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 To such jibes we have long grown used,
Our critics never rest.
Yet still we cry “Come On You Blues!”
With unabated zest.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 We Bluenoses are loyal,
As faithful as they come.
As true as any you might find
In London, Leeds or Brum.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 We’ve had much to put up with,
Yet we don’t stay away,
For Everton we shall support
Until we’re in our graves.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 5/12/19

Notes

At time of writing I do not know who the next permanent (i.e. not caretaker) Everton manager will be, hence Mr X.
