Two Black Bosses In The Football League

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 we’ve come so far now that’s what they say
done so much now to drive it all away
but through my letter box a leaflet on the mat
it made me wanna make myself a smoothie with my hat

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I read this article I couldn’t quite believe
two black bosses in the football league

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 all of those heroes all of those stars
how many chances did we give John Barnes
Cyrille Regis Luther Blissett names we can sing
ended up not doing anything

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 everything’s changing now watching from the stands
Asian players black players spreading ‘cross the land
but we need pioneers with coaching aspirations
to break through and bring alive the next generation

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 but way down at Brentford and Peterborough too
the only black managers .. they’re the only two
for Leroy Rosenior is making his place
and Keith Alexander can proudly show his face

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 I read it in an article I couldn’t quite believe
two black bosses in the football league

it’s not just about players..and managers either….refereess,,coaches,,admin staff, security,programme sellers…
