Steve Sherwood was better!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Robert Green, Robert Green, diving through the mud
Robert Green, Robert Green, landing with a thud
Steals on the pitch
Gives to the (back) four
Robert Green, Robert Green, Robert Green

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He came to Nottingham Forest with a feather in his cap
A keeper never looking to let one slip
His stance was always ready and he kept his reflexes sharp
Never wanting to be outdone by a chip

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Robert Green, Robert Green, diving through the mud
Robert Green, Robert Green, landing with a thud
Steals on the pitch
Gives to the (back) four
Robert Green, Robert Green, Robert Green

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 He called the greatest strikers to a shootout in front of goal
They vowed to score for the fans
But they got little joy and few celebrations on the whole
And yet he’s still not part of Capello’s plans

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Robert Green, Robert Green, diving through the mud
Robert Green, Robert Green, landing with a thud
Steals on the pitch
Gives to the (back) four
Robert Green, Robert Green, Robert Green

Notes

Well – we’re certainly not singing Scott Carson’s praises, and that’s for sure!

(Written the day after England beat Germany 2-1 in a friendly in Berlin, where a Scott Carson and JT mix up led to a very soft goal).

Following on from English Banana.
Yes – Non Humphries is offically Robert Green’s #1 fan.

Seeing as today appears to be Robert Green homage day, the contribution above sprang to mind.

And the title?
A tongue-in-cheek reference to a keeper from many moons ago – who started out as Peter ‘The Cat’ Bonetti’s understudy, then went on to make his name at Watford in the seventies and early eighties. His surname fitted the ditty!
