What Coach?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 He coached our club for ten years, Steve Foley
Though we had a specialist for our goalie
Our defence used to be quite holey
But they worked hard and improved slowly
Then Norwich sacked Steve, putting him on the dole-y
Then things got worse and he signed for lowly
Ipswich
In East Anglia that’s the ultimate Judas switch
But Steves nostrils flared and began to twitch
The chance to take six points off Norwich
Showing them he’s got the needle and aims to stitch
Up Nigel who released him from the City pitch
Only time will tell…

Notes

Following his singling out from a team of failure Foley was upset at his sacking, particularly as City were headhunting a replacement before they had committed the deed. Foley has now joined Ipswich. Cue a rise in their fortunes as they reach the play offs. Norwich will play the part of the write offs.
