Who no-one else is chasing
Who doesn’t care about low wages
Who just loves to play and score goals.

Old enough to bring experience
Young enough to bring pace and enthusiasm
Who’ll come to us because we are a “Big Club.”

Who can command a goal area
But will sit on the bench game after game
Whilst the man wearing No 1 takes all the glory.

And I’ll tell you of this club’s glorious past,
I’ll sell you a dream of Premiership success,
I’ll convince you that money isn’t everything,
That passion is what it’s all about,
That this club is a family, all pulling together,
That this team is a winner but you will make it better,
That this is a team that can’t fail – invincible!

Notes

Dedicated to Jez Moxey who, when the scouts have done their job, has to somehow convince a player that Molineux is where his future lies even though we pay some of the lowest wages in the league. An impossible task but one that Jez seems able to accomplish from time to time.
