Take The Money & Run ( a Reserve Side)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Now ‘Arry’s quite a bloke I know
John Lennon was the same
They both sang out with Mind Games
Ev’ry now and then

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He reckons Sandra (‘Arry’s wife)*
Could score the ones ‘they’ miss
Can you just see the passion
That touchline vibe and kiss?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 So pity poor old ITV
Who forked out out for Man U
Only to hear that Spurs Reserves
Will now be there for you

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Of all the cup-ties we’d have chose
Like Fulham up at Kettering
It’s always Man United on the box
when others would be better-ing (ouch!)

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 And all those Spurs fan traipsing up
A hundred quid a piece
To watch some B team do their stuff
When will this madness cease?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 And meanwhile Fergie’s talking up
Whenever cup-ties loom
The usual mounting injuries
The same old doom and gloom

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 They talk about Respect The Ref
But what about The Fans?
And as for ‘same old’ ITV..

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Please revise your plans!

* (Sandra (Mrs) Redknapp!) In case you missed it Harry reckons his “missus” could put away the chances squandered by Bent and co.

What a rip off for starved Terrestrial TV and travelling Spurs fans!
Not happy about Harry and Spurs (allegedly) putting out
the “weakest team possible” at Old Trafford. Unless it’s mind games.
Oh right they’ve got one mickey mouse final against Man USA ,so stuff the FA Cup then? . Cheers! And now (just like when Internationals come around) suddenly (surprise surprise) United have 8 new injuries (allegedly)… who will all be miraculouslty fit next week , no doubt?

The Man U-Spurs Cup tie is being shown live on terrestial TV (yawn) .So both club take half the gate money and let fans buy match and train tickets .Does that mean Man United will put out a reserve team too? It’s ‘take the money and run.’ Half each for a cup-tie with a 70-75,000 crowd!) + TV money…it shouldn’t be allowed……what credit cruch ?(in football!!!!)
It took us long enough in the Cup, to stop the switching of little grounds to bigger grounds , now this..money money money eh.
