1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The Chairman and directors were delighted,
The interview was going rather well.
The search for a new head coach at United
Was nearly done, as far as one could tell.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 They’d liked his transfer policy suggestion,
They’d liked his most unusual approach.
