Ronald Koeman’s Blue and White Army

Our time is drawing nigh,
Our Faith has never wavered,
Our hopes are running high.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Tradition? We’ve tons of it!
Ambition? By the bucket!
Our name? It echoes round the world
From Nanking to Nantucket!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Our Stadium is Goodison,
A Grand Old Lady she!
Though somewhat on the run-down side,
We’ll never ever leave.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Nil Satis Nisi Optimum,
It’s on our Crest once more!
(And if you don’t know what that means,
Your Latin’s pretty poor.)

The ‘Pool, The Arse, Man U,
Apart from Leicester City,
All other teams in Blue.

From the lazy Mersey’s rive,
And we bid new converts welcome,
All you need do is believe.

This is the third poem in a series – to appreciate it fully, you should read the earlier two – Rob Martinez’ and David Moyes’s… but I am probably asking too much.
