Is this seat taken please.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Crowded dug outs, like pre-match pubs
Physios, Masseurs and Seven named subs
Sports scientists, kit men, fitness coaches
All vying for seats, as kick off approaches.
Managers, assistants, and statisticians
Interpreters, and the clubs physicians.
Disputed throw in, tensions increase
Fourth officials remit is to keep the peace
Stadium security, try to do their bit
Block fans view as there’s nowhere to sit.
Managers clash in bad tempered feud
Language colourful and often lewd
One’s well out of order, and for his crime
The club reacts with a hefty fine.
Time to limit the numbers
Down at pitch side
Bring back good manners……And restore some pride.



I hope we have heard the last of the unsavoury Pardew incident after this weeks decision by the F.A.
