1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I am here
In the changing room,
Feeling the fear
Down in the gloom.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Last to be chosen
Playing for 2 hours,
My dreams are broken
Wish I had magic powers!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Given no credit
But thinkin’ I’m the best,
In my football kit
But needing a rest.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Number 10 I wear
But we are beaten,
Without a care
They were cheatin’.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 So off we walk
To the changing room,
After match talk
Full of doom!


When I was a teen I used to play 5 a side football. In our first game we were beaten 28-3 by a team called ‘The Rock’ the winners of the game met the players at Anfield so it was gutting for us not to win. We did get a trophy for our efforts and for the record I scored a great goal from the halfway line!!! :o)
