Three Teams Worse Than We Are

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 At least we’ll be here a year from now because
there’s three teams worse than we are
who deserve to go down.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 You can park your bus in our midfield,
drive a tractor through our defence.
Slalom freely our wide-open flanks,
test our goalkeeper’s positional sense.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 We’ve failed to replace our ageing stars,
and our recruitment policy is a farce.
Our tactics have lost the plot,
and our corridor of uncertainty runs box to box.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 We’re rubbish and we know it,
but there’s three teams worse than we are
who deserve to go down.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Trouble is, every time we say those words,
they come with a creeping sense of doubt.

Notes

Something I’m sure we can all recognise. Palace make me think this pretty much every season!
