Transfer Speculation

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Transfer speculation
In the summer it runs rife
Nods, winks, hints and rumours
It’s part of football life

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Are we playing six across the middle?
It certainly seems that way
With so many links to midfielders
There’s a new one every day.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Today we’re linked with Coady
Yesterday it was Wood
We need to bust the budget
And sign somebody good.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Kuszczak’s signed a new contract
I’m sure I heard that news
But now I see he’s upped and gone
His contract’s now with Blues.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 McDonald’s off to Fulham
I hear a second bid’s afoot
Then the Gaffer says: No that’s wrong
McDonald’s staying put.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Perhaps we’ll try again for Bamford
A striker in his prime
And though we’ve tried and failed before
He’s sure to come this time.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 The gaffer denies everything
That’s his usual way
“He’s not a player on our radar”
Then he’s signed the very next day.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Some Prem clubs want Afobe
But he’s the one we want to keep
So you better be talking eight figures
‘cause he’s not coming cheap.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 And so the circus rolls along
And as the season’s getting nearer
The clubs get a bit more desperate
And players just get dearer.

Notes

I hate this time of year. The fans know we need 5 new players. The Gaffer knows we need 5 new players. So just get on with and get them signed! Roll on August 8th!
