Silly Season

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Three cheers
had barely died down
we raised our glasses, then our eyebrows
as our player of the season for the last three years
put in a transfer request
who would have guessed
that Holt would want to go

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 How many brand new issue replica shirts
Are waiting in wardrobes, unworn, benign
Bearing the name of Holt, number nine

Notes

Norwich City have enjoyed three great seasons. Now we have furure, speculation, rumours abound, unrest in the camp…welcome to a Premier League close season.
