Scary times

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I have never known a time so scary
Where football came to a halt
And should the season end so soon
It won’t be football’s fault
This nasty man-made virus has caused all sport to cease
And even the Champions League;s in doubt
Which is Uefa’s top show-piece

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But spare a thought for the lower leagues
Where clubs rely on gates
If no one enters through the stiles
Some will be in dire straits
But this could go on longer yet
Much longer than most though
How will clubs survive this mess
To pay those players they bought.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Instead they’ll have to sit this out
In times of house arrest
Football may never be the same again
And could leave most clubs oppressed
It’s a very worrying time for clubs
Without money they can’t get by
No income received and staff to pay
No TV rights from Sky

Notes

Never known a time where such a virus has stopped all football world wide.
