Transfer Deadline Day

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Twenty four hours of deals
in they come, out they go
some to the Premier League
others to divisions below.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The fans are getting edgy
will their best player leave ?
the manager’s staying tight lipped
has he got something up his sleeve ?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 We need a top player urgently
is Lionel Messi up for sale ?
how about Ronaldo then
seeing Coventry missed out on Bale?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 It’s getting close to the deadline
and no news of anyone coming in
the gaffer says he’s in no rush
even though his squad is wafer thin.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 That’s it, the window’s now closed
the transfer shop is now shut
has your favourite player gone
or is he now staying put ?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 So did your club splash the cash
is your new striker on a hundred grand ?
don’t be silly, we don’t shop at Harrods
we have to make do with Poundland !



A very interesting day in the Football Calendar with all it’s comings and goings.

You hope your club keeps hold of your better players, but you know deep down one or two will leave.

Must be great to shop in Harrods though !
