Mr Holloway At Last You’ve Finally Gone!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I wake in the morning by way of a change
And the first thing I do is turn on my radio
Before moving off to my kitchen for some breakfast
Which I plan on eating whilst listening to the headlines
And then it comes, a surprise to brighten any day
The wonderful news that he has gone and our hero
Will take charge until the end of the season

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Holloway, or should that be secret agent Olly,
You’re gone and all I can feel is relief, joy and
A little resentment it wasn’t any damn sooner
It shouldn’t have lasted this long, he should have gone
After our Boxing Day humiliation
It ruined my time at my parents and my Dad was going truly insane

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Unravelling conspiracies that would even put the X-Files to shame
About some of his transfer dealings, tactics and training sessions
The constant changing of formations to bamboozle our players
The loan signings of rubbish, middle-aged fat men to play up front
When they can’t pass, head or hold the ball up, let alone score a goal
Or the recent news that we’ve had more injuries in training than we have in matches

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 It’s all truly weird and to top it off
We have his constant babbling to the press about how it ain’t his fault
It’s the police for not allowing more of our fans in, he claims one day
And then after another defeat it was all the players fault
But, he promised, that will all change once I bring my players in
So January came and a clear-out took place and guess what happened…

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Nothing, everything stayed the same
The team kept on losing and soon a new low was reached
The longest stretch at home without a win since the club was founded
Just for those not in the know that’s now 130 years ago.
But finally, this morning, the news came and suddenly life seemed easier
And maybe at the weekend something good will happen?
