They like parties and nights with other blokes’ wives.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Footballers don’t like poems,
You wouldn’t expect the gaffer to rhyme,
Or to use rhythm or meter,
When he shouts at the team at half time.
(Except, of course, for John Sitton,
Whose words were almost sublime)

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Footballers don’t like poems,
I don’t think they think they’re quite right.
No, footballers don’t like poems
Though I hear Alex Revell might.
