Getting Things Off My Chest Part Two

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 And what about the casual part time supporter
Who turns up out of the blue and sits in your seat
That’s the one you’ve bought a season ticket for
And not for a fairweather “fan” from off the street.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 And why do clubs keep changing their kits ?
Then charge you forty quid just for the shirt
You know that they’re worth about a tenner
And half the shirt is covered in a silly advert.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Please can England next time have a manager
That’s from England and not from a foriegn land
What’s wrong with having a home grown boss
Instead of being stuck with one we can’t understand.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And can we just have one commentator
When covering a game on the radio or T.V.
Their incessant gibberish can ruin the match
Whether it’s Arsenal v Chelsea or Crewe versus Torquay.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Who’s great idea was it to change the ball ?
And in doing so went and ruined the World Cup
It ended up flying all over the pitch like a balloon
Turning the tournament into one mighty cock-up.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Still I’m fine now I’ve had a good moan
And looking forward to our next match
But I’ve decided not to pay an electricity bill
So I can afford a programme and a nice bacon batch !


That’s it now I’ve got it all of my chest, now I’ll have to balance it out with some positive things from our great sport, there must be some I can list !
