Pay up…..Look happy.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Before this season is over
Before the last ball has been kicked
Before our frustrations have ended
Before the last turnstile has clicked.
Our clubs will send out reminders
That our money for next season is due
Pay by cheque or direct debit
The choice they shall leave up to you.
They may say we have frozen our prices
Or they have increased by just Ten per cent
They will insist our support is so vital
And try to tell us it’s money well spent.
They will include a nice glossy brochure
And a voucher to spend in the club shop
But what can you get for a Fiver
It is hardly shop till you drop.
And of course the future is rosy
Our clubs are determined to win
One of the three major trophies
Cameron and Blair call it spin.
