Through An Old Man’s Eyes

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 No more negativity,
No more fearing the worst
No more thinking after three wins
The bubble is going to burst.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The players are full of confidence
The way that I should be
But after years of disappointment
It’s very hard for me.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I am very old you see
Have supported Wolves for years
And just when things are going well
The season usually ends in tears.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Nuno who? Never heard of him
He’s our manager and I’m told
That he’s brought in lots of players
Who aren’t very old

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 I see these boys run onto the field
And they tell me it’s my team
I shake my head, does not compute
This surely is a dream.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 My Wolves have never played like this
They’re just huff and puff
They don’t dominate other teams
Playing this mesmerising stuff.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 They ping the ball left and right
Just as fast as it can get
And before I see what’s happening
They have it in the net.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 1 Who are all these young talents
Happy to don the old gold
Where has Jodi Craddock gone?
Don’t tell me he’s been sold.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 I never really liked the Chinese
Not their customs or their food
But one thing you can’t deny
Their businessmen are shrewd.

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 And now that they own my club
I’m as happy as can be
Because now we’re making progress
The way we ought to be.


There is a buzz around Molineux now the likes of which I have never witnessed before. Happy days indeed!
