Time To Get Serious – At Last

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 right – it’s back
Sven’s at County – City are the new boys under the palm trees
AFC Wimbledon and Luton are in the Conference
and don’t get me started on Newcastle

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 so – you’ve got the new kit – in your mind
renewed your season ticket -in your mind
bought everything going – in your mind
memorised the fixture list -in your mind
laminated it up to A3 and yes..
emphatically marked in PERMANENT pens
all televised away games – if you’re that lucky
on your Greenpeace /Official Club Calendar

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 and that’s the rest of the year
and probably the rest of ..
your ‘supposed’ precious-life sorted
those with partners tread carefully

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 and how will it go – who knows?
will the changes come to fruition?
wil my key still turn my ignition?
will we put on an exhibition?
i have my usual nervous suspicion

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 “one swallow doesn’t make a summer” Kevin Keegan..
and still “we continue to continue.. to pretend
that life will never end – and flowers never bend
with the rainfall ” Simon & Garfunkel

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 but look – as Aussie pundits are loathe to say
we’re still here in our 10th year
different keyboards everywhere
different countries different divisions
same old free verse rhyming decisions
but basically ‘same old same old same old’
for us all and be honest…
we love it and hate it don’t we?

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 and just think this time next year
the World Cup will be but a memory – i n your mind
those with sumer weddings beware
oh no time to get a 2010 wall chart!

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 .



Sorry. Just had one of those “I’ve just realised it’s the start of a new season moments” .
