Pressure Point?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Is Old Red Nose feeling Keeganed
As the pressure starts to mount
Will hairdryers be reeling
If those points in front run down?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Will dressing room walls be tea stained
As an old bloke’s nerves get frazzled
Will Berbatov and young Rooney Wayne
Stay fit enough to climb back in the saddle?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 If The Gel boy gets his self hurt
Will he place all blame on him
As their season turns from bad to worse
With a “we should have won it” run in?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Mind games and Chinese whispers
Sly digs and Gawd knows what?
Are they ploys to disguise an achilles heel
Wizened knight seen in his squad?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 As a fan whose team had a gaffer
With far, far too much to say
I’d prefer our man shut his mouth and manage us
For the wages our club pay!



Firstly the imaginary sight of Old Fergie and Big Sam as Cissie and Ada: with their curlers in, overalls, arms folded and false teeth stuck out. From the poem by…Red. Is just…blinding and would be a great charity stunt for next years Red Nose day?

I thought when Jose (mind games at play) Mourinho left these shores this kind of stuff would cease but it seems it hasn’t.

Fergie taking sides to have a pop at someone, through the media when he decides to talk to them that is, is nothing new, but is he doing it to disguise the fact that his teams bottle might be going, when we’re after all about to become embroiled in one of the most frenetic finales to a season for years?

The plot….. thickens as they say.
