Player of the month?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Donny Rovers once went three Championship months
winning pretty much every week
Manager of the month?
O’Driscoll didn’t get a peek

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Now we’ve a forward who
scored in five on the trot
James Hayter’s his name
and his form is red hot

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 He joined us from Bournemouth
and sewed promotion seeds
By scoring at Wembley
in the final against Leeds

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Such a great scoring streak
is not bad for a guy
Who also helps us defend
by chasing out wide

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Scored at the Madejski
and away at Burnley
He notched against Portsmouth,
Millwall and Swansea

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 He isn’t the biggest
but he’s good in the air
Leave our number twelve unmarked
if you dare

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Hayter is awesome
He’s one we can trust
His name on the teamsheet
is always a must

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 No nonsense, not fussy,
just honest hard graft
Will he win Thursday’s award?
…don’t be daft!

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 It’ll be Caulker or Holt or Taarabt
though don’t worry Hayts
You’ll get no recognition
but we know that you’re great
