Our favourite eleven
Across the whole land
Aberdeen to Devon

Carrying all sorts
From hoodies with ASBOs
To lawyers from courts

Spot a coach of oppo fans

Ha ha ha, Loser.

That was never off-side
All at once from the stands
A hundred broken hearts cried

Quick pint, Pukka Pie

Pass and move, goals galore
Doesn’t matter how many
We always want more

Toasting the win
Our strikers on top form
While their back four caved in

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 The defeated fans shrug
There’s always tomorrow
We toast our victory
While they drown their sorrow
