Nil-Nil The Bitter Pill

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Did I mention
The tension
At Carrow Road
As Southend ‘The Bottom Side’ United
Came to play
On Boxing Day

We’re not doing too well
This season
Norwich ‘The Slippery Slide’ City
Avoiding the sales
To watch the final nails
Being banged in on our season
When they should be banging in the goals


Robert Earnshaw is the leagues top scorer yet City are 17th and in danger of falling into the relegation quicksand. We need to buy a new team but sadly we’ll probably sell Earnie to do it.
