The Greatest Team Never To Win A Title

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Their challenge fell away at Easter
With games against Leeds, Man U and Arsenal.
How cruel the fixture computer can be.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 They lost the FA Cup Final Replay
On penalties, having led till injury time.
Their Captain wakes in nightmares
With his hands about to grasp the trophy.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The greatest team never to win a title:
Their ghosts cry in the bars and clubs of England
Remembering the early leads they squandered
The defence that was almost invincible
The striker sold at the wrong time of the season
The goalkeeper who was not quite brilliant enough.
