To Lose, To Wreck

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 One day your team will be the best
Taking the points in a mighty goal-fest
They win everything going, luck is blessed
Even the title for footys best-dressed

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Now and again they lose touch with the rest
Many a game they failed to impress
Fighting a stern relegation test
The manager goes bald under the stress

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Worn with pride, the club emblem vest
Fund-rasing dinner, VIP guest
Testimonials feather their nest
But someone has to be the losingest

Notes

Losingest – least successful.

This lovely word revealed itself to me through my favourite anorak hobby of readng dictionaries.
