Roll of honour (not including the caretakers)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 When Machin was boss
We won 5-1,
But he soon got the boot
And now where’s he gone.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Kendall was dazzling
When he arrived,
But he never stuck around
Much to everyone’s surprise,

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The scouser from Everton
Did really well.
Then Swales hired Maddock.
Reid’s departure left a smell.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Brian Horton! Brian who
More like. No idea.
He couldn’t save us from
Relegation (that was abundantly clear).

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 A World Cup winner
But never a first choice,
The man from 66 – naive
With a squeaky voice.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Coppell was manager
For 32 days,
But the enormity of the task
Left him confused and dazed,

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 When Clark took over
We were optimistic.
But he never delivered.
It’s that simplistic.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Royle was City
Through and through,
He put us back on the map
From the despair of League 2,

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 King Kev was hailed
As something of a messiah,
Yet 50 million later
It was still looking dire.

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Now enter `Psycho`
With much to muse.
We wish him luck.
Let’s hope things improve.
