Ode To Roy!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We’d ‘Arry’ this and ‘Arry’ that
‘Arry’ walks on water
Now Hodgson’s chose, will ‘Arry Acks’
Change coats and try reporting?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Was The Spurs man ever interested?
Was his hat thrown in the ring?
Spurs fans point to ‘Arry’s’ china’s in the press*
Slaughtering their season.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 We’re tired of Prima Donna’s
Umbrella’s and short terms
Mercenary Johnny Foreigners
Yeah we’ve had our share of those.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 So at last we’ve employed an English bloke
With a knowledge or our game
Who’ll obviously know when to go for broke?
Or to change the way we’re playing.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 A real patriot stood on the touchline
I mean, how long has it been
Since an England manager stood and mimed
Out of tune to God Save The Queen?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Hodgson has real experience
He’s tactically astute
Has a Ramsey way of dealing
With the media that’s cute.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Yet the most important characteristic
In Roy Hodgson seen to date
Is when the FA asked: “Are you interested?”
He didn’t even hesitate!



London newspapers, it has to be said, aint too happy about this latest England appointment, believe me. They lumped (gambled) on ‘Arry’ big time. Who cares what they think, two or three months from now they’d have been stabbing their man in the back anyways.

This bloke (Hodgson) has a cute way of going about his business, and getting the job done. He’s a pretty smart operator who will change things quickly if Plan A ain’t working out on the field as well, and how long is it since we had one of those at the helm?

Some Liverpool fans thought he was sacked too quickly, and given time (yeah that word) would have turned it around for them eventually.

*China is cockney slang for China Plate…mate!

Go well and be lucky.
