To All Deluded Burnley Fans

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 To all deluded Burnley fans
Alright – so you went top!
But so did Stoke last season
before going on to flop.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Your confidence is premature
have you ever heard of Bash?*
And though we’ve had a shaky start
Beware the white backlash.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Reality will be painful
but what’s really going to hurt:
Is the whipped in cross from Eyresy*
And the killer goal from Kurt.*


*Steve Basham, David Eyres and Kurt Nogan.

I should explain that Eyres and Nogan were both sold to Preston by Burnley and over the next three seasons, between them, they helped destroy Burnley each time the teams met. Nogan in particular couldn’t stop scoring against his old club (much to the Burnley fans chagrin)
