Oh Shut Up Motson!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 “It’s worth thinking about, if David Beckham was fit
Shaun Wright-Phillips wouldn’t even be playing”
Sometimes John Motson really takes the biscuit
With the ridiculous things he’s after saying.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 ‘The lad done great’ as Emlyn Hughes said
So get behind an exciting team’s new dawn
And speaking of LA’s David Beckham
When did he, last venture that far forward?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 A closing word for The Villa’s Gareth Barry
On a really sound impressive game
It goes to show McClaren, that there are those who can
Do it in an England shirt, without the need to be a ‘name’.



As the actor Donald Sutherland aka Oddball in the film Kelly’s Hero’s says “Always with the negative waves Motson”. Or was it Moriarty?

Anyway really lovely to hear the singing ringing around the national stadium last night in spite of Motson. If you ever go to Wemberly pray there’s no action to speak of just after the interval as you’ll probably still be trying to get in to the loo’s or queing up for refreshments well in to the second half.

Some fans when I was there, made their own arrangements, but we don’t need to go into that here!

Bring on the Russians, Czechs, French and anyone else who may be playing against the home countries this week.
