Leeds Heavy 4 Goal Thrashing by the Toffees

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Leeds heavy 4 goal thrashing by the Toffees
Must surely mean that poor old Reidy’s off ’e’s
The odds-on favourite to win the sack race
Resulting from United’s very slack pace

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 His team played like a pack of Humpty-Dumpties
While bad-mouthed by a baying crowd of numpties
Their on-loan squad’s a terrible dog’s dinner
And sad to say they don’t look like a winner

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The stellar qualities of Roque Junior
Were not in evidence, what could be loonier
Than building on this pick’n’mix farrago?
What’s needed is a crap import embargo

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The old guard are harrumphing with displeasure
They’re feeling the disgrace in fullest measure
Let’s face it Reidy’s destined for the big chop
As Leeds accelerate towards the big drop

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 When Leeds at last declare administration
Twill be a great relief to all the nation
The 80 million debt is all on paper
And doesn’t justify this endless caper

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 And I know what you Tykes are thinking
Leeds aren’t the only major club that’s sinking
The difference is the Toon put 5 past Breda
And Leeds are lumbered with old monkey-heeda

Notes

I’m chronicling Leeds terrible year of 2003/04. This
one was one of the three “Heavy 4 Goal Thrashings”
they suffered in the Autumn: Leicester, Everton and
the Arsenal – and a major contributor to the
spectacular slide to the bottom of the Premiership.

Everton 4 : Leeds 0 on 27 September 2003
