Sure, We Were Only Kidding…. Ourselves!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Suppose I shouldn’t really comment
Cos I didn’t catch the whole of the game
As all hope got dashed in Moscow
And our chance went down in flames

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Only thing I had to tell me how
We got beat on plastic sod
Was a bloke who’s really lost the plot
As he blubbered:”We wuz robbed”.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Sitting on on a one nil lead
With a goalie who’s a vampire*
Is a dicey game to play against a team
With Gus Hiddinck as the gaffer.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 As I listened to Steve’s whining
Whilst watching match of the day
I could hear the fans demanding on the wireless
He must go now, and do so right away.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The two Al’s were praising Joey Cole’s
Performance as a full back??
Sorry boys when you need at least two goals
Joey Cole should be out on the wing
Supplying your attack!

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Still the dreaded vote of confidence
Has been anounced today
What price that barren McClaren’s gone
By the time, the mighty Croatia come to play?



*Vampire, terrified of crosses or cross shots!

I was at an exhibition, for work, yesterday, at Earls Court. Some of the blokes there, at the show, were catching the match on line, so as soon as I heard, from one of them, that Rooney had put Ingerland one nil up, I thought, to meself, that’s it they’ll go on and win easily now!

As the show was coming to an end and I walked to the exit there were about five minutes left and everybody was doing their nut watching the end of the game on a big screen! Everybody except me, that is, who didn’t watch the whole match, and after catching the highlights on M.of.T.D last night I’m blimmin glad to say that I didn’t!

In closing I have to agree with the person who posted a view about the television interviewer who grilled Steve Staunton ceaselessly about his resignation after the Republic’s terrible one all home draw with Cyprus.

Staunton had gone on air to give his frank and honest opinion on the short-comings of his team, unlike some managers yesterday, and this bloke just kept pestering him to say when he was going to jack it all in.

Stauntons self control under extremely provoking cicumstances has to be admired.

Who’d be a football manager?

Not apparantly Steve MacClaren, for much longer, after getting the old FA kiss of confidence from Brian Barwick earlier today.
