You couldn’t make it up

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We are bottom of the division
and struggling to stay afloat
trouble on and off the pitch
fans and board at each other’s throat.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Us fans have been told not to worry
new signings are on their way
a couple of strikers and a defender
all in place for the game on Saturday.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But you really couldn’t make this up
our leading scorer is being sold
he’s being replaced by a loanee
a young lad who’s Nineteen years old.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 All our good players have left us
the best are always out the door
so no wonder fans get frustrated
watching sides that are weak and poor.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 My beloved team is in turmoil
us supporters are full of anxiety
worried as to where we are heading
and the future of our club Coventry.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 But we’re all in this fight together
as this isn’t the time to run and hide
and even though we’re all hurting
we’ll continue cheering on our side.

We were told we’d keep hold of players and get a couple in to strengthen the squad, so they go and sell our striker to Boro and they wonder why fans stay away !

We have never been able to keep hold of quality players going back to the Seventies, and this trend has continued.

Anytime a player shows promise we all go: “he’ll be off soon” – and we are always right !
