Samaritan Phil (Brown)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Inquest pre massacre at mighty Anfield
City strolled down to the Humber
One of the world’s prime suspensions
To try halt their Premier slumber

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Whilst team Hull sought “clarity”
During a river walk last Wednesday
Said Phil, “we saved a girl actually”
“Considering her future shall we say”

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Buoyant deed may not suffice
Tigers for the drop many will wager
And with that therein endeth
The story of the 40 plus teenager

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 With a grim 4 points from 7 starts
Good old Phil we cheered, ah bless!
A break for the Tandoori tan
Or simply a forlorn Tigress?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Number 7

Good old Phil – Hull’s greatest ever manager deserves a break and an overdue run of good form.
