Football Stewards

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 In their bright fluorescent jackets
they think they own the place
they look at us football fans
with a smirk upon their face.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 To me they’re not football people
they just like to strut about
standing in groups just staring
“sit down in your seats,” they shout.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 They’re supposed to assist the police
and help to keep things quiet
but with their stormtrooper approach
can almost start a full scale riot.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 There must be some good ones
but alas they’re extremely rare
most of the fans at our ground
just don’t want them there.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 So stewards just leave the fans alone
in fact please just don’t come at all
your just a load of sad bully boys
who haven’t a clue about football !


I don’t know about other fans but the stewards at our ground really can get you irritated with their attitude, they act like pub bouncers instead of football stewards. They love to stir up trouble when it’s not there, and when some fan confronts them they group together like playground bullies making things worse. And can there be anything more annoying at a match when they block your view ? We pay to watch a game they don’t, so I just wish they’d go away and leave us all alone !
