Hunger and Being “Up For It!”

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 In that F.A.ntastic televised cup tie
Were the Luton players hungry

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 What, did they have a barren December?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Nah. Harsh reality had struck the Bedfordshire side
Truth is we’d all be bleedin hungry

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 With no greengages* since September!



*Greengages, cockney slang for wages.

How can you expect a team to turn up and put it in, if they’ve had no wages, since September?

That makes the performance of the whole Luton team and the fans, in the cup tie all the more mind-blowing.

What a sorry state of affairs.

PFA, where are you?
