Where’s your famous atmosphere ?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Talk of atmosphere watching football
Then your search shall be in vain
Forget the new Emirates
Or the oldWhite Hart Lane.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 And you will find little fervour
Among the prawn sandwich brigade
Stamford Bridge and Old Trafford
Avoid like the plague.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The Upton Park bubbles
Have became rather flat
And Boro fans go to the Riverside
For a nice quiet chat.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Goodison and Anfield
Once both cauldrons of passion
But scouse wit and humour
Now on the ration.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 And the Parks of Ewood
Villa and Fratton
Along with the rest
Follow a similar pattern.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 The Gallowgate end roar
From Geordies once so devout
Now reduced to a whimper
With little to sing about.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 And the JJB Stadium
Resembles a chapel of rest
Please bring back the terraces
True fans now request.

Notes

Like the Lionel Bart song say’s ‘Fings aint what they used to be ‘
