New Season of Promise

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Kick off
We have lift off
Pessimism worn off
Consigned to last season where it belongs
We’re looking to hit the play offs

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Half time
We have half pints
Of Bovril
Or soup for the other half
Half hearted players, half baked tactics
Doing everything by half measures

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Full time
Full blooded comeback
Full scale effort
Full montys all round
Walking home from the ground
Its 2am and full moon
Looking forward to a full English
Three sausages, two rashers, two eggs


That great feeling when it’s still all to play for and when anything is possible.

I am pleased to announce that we cannot fail – though we may qualify for deferred success and be proud of that achievement.
