Clough as Morrissey

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 This charming man
Spoke football words of wisdom
‘Bigmouth strikes again’
Screamed the big ‘ed lines
When the Revie broke
Dragged down to earth
Charity Shield ’74
The end was nigh
‘Frankly Mr Shankly’
Sighed the Future Forest saviour
“I started something I couldn’t finish
I Know It’s Over
Please Please Please
Let Me Get What I Want.”

Notes

Reflecting on ‘The Damned Utd’ – Michael Sheen captures Ol Big ‘Ed brilliantly. Brian Clough – love him or hate him he was a football genius.
