My club is making me ill

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I’m feeling down in the dumps
struggling to get to sleep at night
people say I’m looking tired
in fact I don’t feel at all right.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 My doctor has given me some pills
and advised me to take a long break
he said my team is bad for my health
and to stop going for my sanity’s sake.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Whatever I’ve got must be catching
because a lot of Coventry fans are bad
this illness is linked to watching the City
and it leaves you feeling tearful and sad.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The only cure is to keep well away
or in the end I will go completely insane
so being a supporter of the Sky Blues
can seriously do damage to one’s brain.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 But even though I feel sick as a pig
and my blood pressure is sky high
I’ve decided to keep following my team
even though their performances make me cry.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 So football can be bad for your health
and leave you feeling really blue
but once a fan always a fan
because this is what we do !



My club are having yet another lousy season so far and fans are brassed off with the board and lack of signings, in fact most fans are predicting relegation.

As I’m a long suffering hard bitten Cov fan – I’ve heard it all before.

But even though this poem is a bit over the top I know what it feels like to be run down and depressed following your club.
