Time To Get Real…. Lads!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 In these times of dire painfull reality
Where people are losing their homes
We’ve been offered a Real Madrid casualty
A forty million squid unknown
Has this madness spiralled out of control?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Gonaldo had signed a new contract
To stay for another four years
And the word he had givens
Been re-negged, gone back
On, to the envious gasps of his peers.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 With players at leisure, to do as they please
For who, when, where and what for
Will they ever feel the pinch, like the punters they bleed?
As they trawl down the road of “How much will you pay me?
That’s not enough, my agents been offered lots more!”

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Our transfer market’s out of proportion
To the harsh reality of a sane and real world
Where can’t afford punters have to watch money with caution.
So you cosseted players wanting more and more gelt
Had better tread carefully, as the gravy train, you’re all riding on
Could very soon…… come to a halt!


It seems to me if you’re name is Ron or Rob or whatever, your value has gone up tenfold overnight, in this close season. Who is this bloke Robinho, Chelsea are interested in? I, for one have never heard of him.

Rons off to Meelan, past his prime, out of sorts and favour at the Camp Nou, with one last massive payday in his back pocket. And the price? Give me a break.

Is Robme Keane really really worth twenty milion of an Anfield fans or any fans money?

Last but not least the Ronaldo deal, what’s that all about? Contracts, it would seem, as they say, ain’t worth the paper they’re printed on.

It maybe time, at last, to get real lads, the gravy train of greed amongst over inflated players and their conniving agents. could be about to come off the rails……big time!
