Wanderers wonderland

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Wanderers, destroyers of footballing dreams
allardyce’s infantry will run you out of steam
An eclectic mix of merceneries, bargains and journeymen
Lost causes? They all rejuvenute in Big sam’s den
Not quite Wimbledon but you get the drift
They’ll grind you, and hurt you, execution is swift
The champions league may be the holy grail
Bolton in the Champions league? Maybe when I’m frail
You call them hoofers, too physical, an unfashionable team
but hey in a democracy everyone can dream

Notes

Bolton are the ultimate bogey team. They will nosedive spectacularly if Big Sam leaves. Also have one of the best chairmen in football (after Steve Gibson I’d say) Mourinho once accused Liverpool of being more physical than Bolton. I still don’t know whether it was a compliment or insult.
