Mike Newell – Played the Fool (And Lost 1:0)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Bad loser, bad manners
As he panned the official
Running the line
Her crime
Was to be female
The fairer sex
He couldn’t deal with her justice
Poor Mr Newell
He’s only good for one thing
Managing a football eleven string
And he’s not even very good at that
He would not survive in business
Where his type are long finished
Mr Newell – time to wake up
And smell the coffee
I’m sure a little woman will bring you a cup



Dinosaurs are not extinct.

Many men agree with Mr Newell but at least have the sense to keep quiet. It’s a fact of life that the best man for the job is often a woman.
