Turning Point?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Now down to the dirty dozen
Remaining games we need to win
How many points to make us safe?
Survival hopes are looking slim

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Turnout is still capacity
Turnstiles counting their chickens
Hoping to turn over the opposition
Are the words on the wall ready written?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Waiting for the team to turn it on
Wandering when the tide will turn
Strikers take it in turns to miss the sitters
The clock ticks on as stomachs churn

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The P-word used to mean Promotion
Or at second-best Play-offs
Now it’s a Perilous, Precarious Position
Where do fans turn when hope is lost?

Notes

Norwich 1: Burnley 1

We’re a pessimistic lot in Norfolk . We’re already reaching for the black armbands with 12 games and 36 points to go.

We jist caan’see wear awin’ll cum from

We’re only happy when we’re moaning!
