Ode to a Lost City

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I don’t love you any more
You’re spineless and I don’t care if you score
No checking results on Teletext
No looking to see who you play next
There’s no fixture list upon my wall
No season ticket on which to call
You can no longer make me look a fool
In a Canary hat and yellow kagoule
My rattle is silent and so is my voice
No more in tune with the Barclay Boys
Time will tell if my passion has died
Or if wishes are Granted it could be revived

Notes

Peter Grants appointment as Norwich City manager is welcome as far as I’m concerned. He is alive with effort and enthusiasm and I am sure he will get the job done and kick our lot out of their comfort zone.

There are those who say ‘he has no management experience at this level’. He hasn’t been sacked for being no good either – many of the other candidates were. No man plays for Celtic for 15 years without understanding the true meaning of football – good luck Mr Grant.
