Made it to the ground
At the dodgy end of town
And bought my soggy pie and chips
The expectation in the air
Turned quickly to despair
When we saw the names upon the team sheet
No-one knew who they were
Why they were playing here this week

The rumours went around
That one of them was found
Playing for a Premiership club
But it was not as it appeared
As the extent of his career
Was two minutes as a second half sub
And the promised healthy body shape
Looked more like a face with mumps

It’s an own goal
Another own goal
Another loss and
Another moan
And at the end of 90 minutes
It’s 200 miles to get back home

The new player in defence
It doesn’t make much sense
Last week he was playing up front
And the owners bright idea
To get sponsored by a beer
Backfired as a publicity stunt
As I swear I saw the goalie passed out
Last night down the local pub
