England: Fan the Flames

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 McClaren: he of one formula
Team flagging, chequered history

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Then injury struck, struck lucky
Drafted in players full of bottle
Glass seemed half full, like the stadium

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Corporate area of empty seating
Deluxe sandwich and central heating

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 While the suits filled their bellies
Real fans watched on telly
Dream England, no. Team England yes!



Sometimes its lucky that a managers first choice selection is unavailable and that ‘kids’ get the chance they deserve. Well done to the team, hoping that an unchanged line up is announced for Wednesdays game.
