They Are Joking?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The BBC
act with alacrity
we react with incredultiy
the Corporation cannot see
the hilarity of punditry
by muppetry

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 How embarrassing
to see his cheesy grin
the expertise he has to bring
Croatia – how not to win
doesn’t go out when it’s raining
although he’s reptilian

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 It still hurts
started off dead certs
but we’re not fit to wear Euro shirts
our faces are rubbed in the dirt
as McLaren will bluster and blurt
spanner in the works!

Notes

Disbelief as McLaren joins 5Live to be an ‘expert’ summariser for Euro 2008. Of course the bloke has to earn a crust (the two million quid can’t be expected to last forever) but I’d rather have seen him selling umbrellas at Wimbledon.

It won’t be long before he’s back working in football management – he’s
certainly got a thick skin.
