1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 England have a tendancy to lose,
often makes me blow a fuse,
so much failure upon which to muse,
like how we lost to Les Blues.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Some idiot said it was the Prem,
that we , us, were training them,
the French, but the problem stems,
from none of these witless gems.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Apart from Beckham, the entire squad,
play in England, how very odd,
that we should blame the foreign star,
but without them we wouldn’t get far.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The problem is laziness, like John Terry,
never misses a game for Chelsea,
boasts about how he’ll suffer when he’s forty,
because (for club) he plays through injury,
often can’t be bothered with international duty,
wonders why he lost the captainacy,
insulting english players is blasphomy,
by some so go ahead, blind nation, shoot me.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Problems arise in our League,
it’s something that we must concede,
only decent Penalty taker’s Owen Hargreaves,
learned that at Bayern Munich, I believe.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Foreign signings make the Premiership shine,
without them we’d be in decline,
only the cream of the crop rise to the top,
that’s how it is and it shouldn’t stop.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 For Blatter’s opinion, I do not care,
idiocy driving me to despair,
Quotas? Is he unaware,
that it isn’t even legal? Or fair.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 The problem is arrogance, the problem is greed,
it’s nobody knowing what we need,
it’s the constant looking for someone to blame,
it’s not just getting on with the game,
it’s thinking we’re better than we are,
it’s the incompetence of a so-called “star”,
it’s the fact that we can’t defend a lead,
and rarely have one, and are apt to concede.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Let’s not waste time,
Timewasting is a crime.
Let’s not blame players from another nation,
for our own, self-induced obliteration,
Let’s get on with it,
try to keep our players fit,
Let’s use actual tactics,
and from what I’ve seen,
Let us please select Rob Green.
