Buying The League

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 After last season’s disappointment,
When things just didn’t work out,
Fosun have made the decision,
There’ll be no more messing about.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 So calling on Jorgé Mendez,
To consult his little black book,
The players started to arrive,
And Wolves took on a different look.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Nuno Espiríto Santo arrived,
And brought his coaching team,
But when I saw the quality of the players,
I thought it must be a dream.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Loans for Bonatini, Jota and Boly,
And John Ruddy on a free,
But Fosun’s cheque book had to come out,
To get the other three.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Roderick Miranda and Barry Douglas,
Cost a paltry four and a half mill,
But the seventeen million they paid for Neves,
Makes him the star that tops the bill.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 With the twenty-five million spent last season,
That’s a forty-seven million spend,
But the bad news for all our rival clubs,
Is that here the story doesn’t end.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Today Fosun announced,
That they’re prepared to still spend more,
To bring in a top class striker,
One that can score goals galore.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 When Man City bought the Prem title,
And then Chelsea followed suit,
I was disgusted like everyone else,
But now I don’t give a hoot.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 I’ve suffered years of mundane football,
Hoofball, huff and puff,
Now my eyes and brain have joined forces,
To scream enough’s enough!

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 I yearn for Premiership football,
Perhaps Champions League one day,
And for the first time in decades,
It feels like we’re on our way.



It’s a funny thing that clubs like Wolves and Boro’ have been heavily criticised for spending so much money this summer but when fans of Derby and Hull have watched the quality of the football that Wolves are now playing, whilst their team is being overrun, they have been much more complimentary. It is said that money can’t buy success. Sadly, that is not true but rather it’s a case of you get what you pay for.
