Tactics Not Included

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Owing to injuries, suspensions and, er, tiredness
We put out a team of footballers, assorted
Everybody played out of position
It seems Plan Z had to be aborted

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Without our striker Earnshaw
We’re suffering a severe goal drought
Off the boil since August
Unlike a supreme Brussels sprout

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Goals this season are like thumbs
You can count them on the fingers of one hand
We can’t afford the big name heroes
And we’ve loaned out our young own brand



While we were fighting at Preston, losing 2-1, our starlet striker Ryan Jarvis was busy scoring a hat-trick for Leyton Orient.

Youssef Safri was ‘too tired’ to play. Not to worry Safs, we were all asleep by half-time.
