Quartered – Barnsley v Chelsea

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We knew it wouldn’t be easy
On a day when underdogs bite pedigrees
Anyone who thinks it a foregone conclusion
is barking
Up the wrong trees

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We’ll have to hound them man for man
And hope we can take the lead
On paper, we’re just lightweights
Let’s give them headlines to read

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The rain came down in buckets
The wind tore past in sheets
The away fans tried to make like a crowd
As they sank deeper in their seats

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 It’s a time for cynics to feel magic
The Champions dealt the death knell
Every team dreams of Wembley
Chelsea will have nightmares of Oakwell

Notes

BARNSLEY : 1 CHELSEA: 0

Congratulations to Barnsley FC, for giving Chelsea the old heave-ho and for giving hope to all us ‘little’ teams. Success tastes sweeter when you don’t have a sugar daddy spoon feeding the club.

And would you believe it – Man United dumped out by Portsmouth, and Cardiff making mincemeat of Middlesborough.

This is not just the FA Cup, this is the real FA Cup.
