Poor relations.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The kitty is empty
Purse strings are tied tight
The club has issued a statement
Revealing our plight.
No more big money signings
Goodbye Michael Owens
Next season we’ll rely on
Free transfers and loans.
With no extra additions
And the squad paper thin
On academy youngsters
Our hopes we will pin.
Is this the way forward
Will others follow our path
Or will those at the top table
Just sit back and laugh.
Another season long struggle
For the poor now awaits
While the elite with their billions
Score Sevens and Eights.
