A Football Poem: Wishing the best of luck to Big Sam Allardyce… He’s gonna need it

I watched the England
football game with
eager anticipation,
Knowing if they WON
the game – it would
cause a great sensation.

Their opponents were
Slovakia – who were
the better team,
They really should have
won it – do you know
what I mean?!

Big Sam Allardyce – he
looked so stressed out,
Maybe he was wishing
for a Wembley runabout!

His jaws were constantly
moving – chewing gum
like Alex Ferguson,
Then when England
scored their goal – the
match was then surely

But England didn’t
have the best of it –
their routine just
wasn’t there.
Slovakia sure did
match them – this
I really do swear.

The same old players
are chosen – without
any consideration,
What has happened
to the England team,
they show no dedication

England used to be
a class team – and
the manager knew
them well.
Every player did their
stuff – in fact they all
did gel.

Gone are the glory
days when all the
world admired us,
Now when England
do play – they cause
a terrible fuss.

The English FA keep
changing the manager,
they think that is the
‘But no matter who’s
in charge – England
are a disaster!

Gone are the years
of glory, Sir Alf Ramsey
did us proud,
Because England won
the world cup – as
they earned the cheering
of the crowd.’

I’d love to be more
positive, but it is so
very difficult.
But every time England
play – they really are
an insult!

Too much money is
on offer – especially
on their wages.
Just tell them now
they won’t be paid –
and watch them act
like the crazies!

England were very
lucky – they scored
right at the end.
I’d love to see them
play like Brazil – ‘oh,
the Brazilian blend!’

Sadly, we have the
same players – they
always look so bored.
They sure would win
my true respect –
especially if they

Twenty eighteen will
soon come round –
and another world
cup treat.
England will NOT be
there – because they
only admit defeat!

I don’t like being
negative – or being
a pessimist.
But can you just
imagine England
winning – there has
to be a twist!

I will leave you now
on a positive note –
and praise the new
England manager.
Good luck to big
Sam Allardyce – will
he make things

England in the World
Cup final – a 2018
super team.
But England winning
the golden’ world cup,
yes, but only if you
