What’s The Fuss?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Poor old Andy Gray
He’s twinned with brontosaurus
Sacked for having his say

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 It’s just the way it is
Doesn’t matter to me
Whether you’re a Mister or a Mizz

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 It’s football, we like a bit of banter
We like to have a good old moan
It adds some fizz to our Fanta

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Shock horror, the lino is a she!
OMG The End is Nigh
It’s all too much for me!

Notes

My name is Sharon and I am a girl. There, I’ve said it.

Why the fuss? The likes of Andy Gray exist to satisfy the appetite for antiquated, chauvinist babble. Some people like it. Let them get on with it I say. Us grown-ups can decide who we listen to/what we watch. I go to all Norwich City home games and sit in a predominantly male crowd, I have been going since 1979 and my grandmother used to go to the The Nest in the 1920’s. Football is the game of the people and even women are people!.
