New Season

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The freshly mown grass, the shiny new kit;
The shiny new faces of our summer signings.
The first squad photo – all logos and optimism;
It could be a good year,
It won’t be a bad year…
Then it’s kick off time, again.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Fixtures out, contracts sorted (we trust).
Manager happy, fans happy too – a rare
Unity; It’s all up for grabs, again.
New opponents, welcome back the old
Tangerines – the Tower, the trams, the
Pleasure Beach, the Golden Mile await.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 And we’ll come out on top of the pile in ’07/08,
Just Mick my words – Merlin the magician
Will succeed where so many have failed.
A team of runners, of grafters; a team of
Strength, speed and no little skill. A team
For promotion…we dream, hope and pray.
