Staring At The Pitch and Thinking….

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We’re in with a shout
We’ll be winners, a rout
Goals? By the shed load for fun.
No matter who plays
Other team will be slayed
Then we’ll rest on our laurels triumphant.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 There’d be sleek give and goes
Incisive blows
Dealt to the others sides portals
We’ll attack down both wings
Become champions or kings
Given time we could well be immortal.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 We’ll score goal of the month
Get scant praise in The Sun
Laud it like some Jack the Lad
We’ll be on Soccer A.M
For the way we win games
And Helen Chamberlain ain’t half that bad.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 In post victory pubs
We’ll raise pints of suds
Toasting our idols and scoring
Then half cut drift off home
Reliving each moment
Of the day and our seasons new dawning.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 We’ll leap from our seats
To pay homage like priests
As the scoreboard lit up when we scored
Then we’d all raise our hands
Do a jig in the stands
We were Gods no mere man could ignore.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 As proud fans we would sing
Cheer, shout and fling
Plaudits from high on our idols.
Then as half past three came
A mere third through the game
We’d be despairingly nigh suicidal!



When you arrive at the ground early (for a change) having ploughed through the ads in the programme, do you sit there wondering how the days proceedings are going to pan out, and if so does any one of the above go through your mind prior to the kick off?

Joe Cole came back, from injury, for us against Blackburn recently, and showboating crossed the ball with his heel. As it happened I thought to meself that’ll be on Soccer AM next Saturday morning and guess what? It was.
