Sledge Hammers and walnuts

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The air of Palermo proved too much in the end
Will Jose Marcello Pardew stay or go?
Or will current form drive him round the bend
Retire to Spain, indulge the cointreau

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Excuses, excuses, distributed galore
Do two world class foreigners make such a detrimental difference?
Especially when both are part of the Argentinian core
Or are the Hammers guilty of sitting on the fence

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 “I’ll do it my way” says a bemused Par-draw
“We have family values” screams a union Jack clad fan
“Over my dead body” he screams like a Jackdaw
Excuses, excuses galore, resign and top up your tan

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The fact is the Hammers are destined to remain a team from the pub
Contented to forever remain an underachieving club
