The Fan With The Flask

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The season is ending
a strange one without doubt,
being played behind closed doors
no fans seen or heard to shout.
Football needs it’s supporters
the lifeblood of the beautiful game,
they belong inside our stadiums
without fans football is not the same.
Let people back in next season
making sure they are all safe and sound,
instead of pumping in fake noise
you’ll have real atmosphere in the ground.
No more of those cardboard cut outs
sat there emotionless in a seat,
they can’t go through a fans real feelings
when they watch a last minute defeat.
So it’ll be good to see that bloke again
wearing his colours with his well used flask,
shouting and swearing at the referee
but with his face hidden behind a mask !
