Stamford Bridge Retirement Home?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We used to have a football club
T’was in the Royal borough
Two championships we won back to back
It was looking good for tomorrow

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We thought we’d like to change it round
And this I can’t condone
We’re no longer now a football club
But a footballers retirement home

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Coming to the end of yer career?
Feel yer time is up?
Get yer agent to gizz a bell
Then we’ll sign you at our club

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Age is so important
You must be twenty eight plus
We’ll pay you dough your mind to blow
If you come and play for us

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Three year deals, brand new wheelchair wheels?
Don’t matter much to us
A zimmer frame before the game
With a Prada suit? No fuss

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 There’s rack outside the dressing room
Where you can park yer sticks
Where two age concern representatives
Will advise you on new hips

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 A hundred and thirty grand a week?
Is sure some pension plan
To an over the hill kinda idol
Who thinks he’s still “The Man”

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 What chance has any young player
Who comes to join our club?
Sadly days are long, long gone
When you met yer idols in the pub

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Yes London is the place to be
In the lovely Royal borough
Where the first eleven are too old to train
But Mourinho don’t seem bothered



I pays me money so I can say what I like!

As Alan Hansen says “Football? It’s all about opinions”!

A short term fix is on the cards or so it seems to me.
