Paulton Rovers – Get the Map!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 This time it’s different
Norwich City are the ‘giants’
We only need to win the game
It’s hardly rocket science

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The underdogs are all called Rover
Paulton Rovers to be precise
They play in purple and for a poet
That fact ain’t too nice

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Nothing rhymes with purple
They’re causing us problems already
Paulton Rovers are “living the dream…”
With the nation watching, on telly

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The neutrals will root for Rovers
For us to be the weekends shock stat
Norwich City aren’t going to Wembley
But please make it back to the hat!



Paulton Rovers v Norwich City – Saturday 7th November 2009
KO 12.45 ITV1/Radio Five Live Sports Extra/BBC Radio Norfolk.

Tomorrow, Norwich City’s cup run could be over, two rounds and two months before it normally starts. It’s weird this, because I always support the ‘little’ team in a Cup game and we are a little team really. But Paulton Rovers are much littler and the romantic in me would like a replay so we can welcome them to Carrow Road!
(yeah I know, I should be careful what I wish for…)

I can just see the headlines though.. “Paulton Wonderers” if they beat City….always love the FA Cup….Editors
