Oi Blondie! Pick On Someone Yer Own Size.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Stuck on me stool near the home fans
A loose ball lands where I’m sat, from the pitch
I throw it back a.q.a.p to a grateful Wolves man
Who chucks it right back in to play double quick.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 All of a sudden this bleached blonde headed geezer
Starts giving me shed loads of abuse
I’m sat stuck in the cold and almost in tears
As this big bully boy really lets loose.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The pundits at Sky thought it funny
To keep focus on my getting slated
As this geezer smiled at his mate, then carried on running
Down the touchline, post I getting berated.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 It’s not as if there seconds left on the clock
When this herbert started giving it large
To a young bloke like me, as he ballboys for Watford
I suppose he thinks he’s a bit of a card.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Dunno his name, he never started the game
He was obviously a Watford team sub
But when me mum get’s his number, she’ll drop him in lumber
By writing pretty strong words to our club.



This was totally bang out of order. Watford v Wolves at Vicarage Road on Saturday night. The ball goes out of play, early in the second half, I think, the ball-boy chucks it back in to a Wolves player who takes the throw in. This big blonde bloke, who’s warming up, comes running down the touch-line, tearing into the ball-boy for giving the ball back so quickly. The ball-boy was almost in tears from the rollicking he got, as the sub runs off smiling with his team-mate. Sky, who thought it clever, to keep the camera’s on the distraught young fellow’s slating made it even worse by joking about the situation.

If the Wolves manager Mick McCarthy had chucked the ball back to a Wolves man quickly, would Blondie have berated him?

Somehow I don’t think so.
