England World Cup Rap
From early days our playing ways were purely practical
No intent to reinvent or cement something maturely tactical
Allardyce and others like him are surely too didactical
And people are surprised when England’s tournament time is anticlimactical
We had the nightmare of Nice against an immutable Iceland
So might there be a cease to the FA’s usual silence?
Guus Hiddink on a 2-year plan was clearly warranted
If they did it that super man would have been sincerely restorative
But oh no, the blazers running the show, appraisers of what they know
They amaze us when they fix their gazes like lasers on the safe-choice pro How’s it looking?
What, they’re cooking the same old recipe??
Trevor Brooking shouldn’t be touching England’s football destiny!
St George’s Park gives us a sort of spark and a modernity
But until we fulfil, thrill and win to nil v Brazil and Germany
There’s still many corners for turning and reforming of learning FA earnings are concerning so I’ve a yearning to bring Barry Hearn in
And while we’re at it, let’s get Sir Clive Woodward and Simon Jordan
There’d be no boredom with him as the foreman, blazers would be discordant
So Goodnight Vienna, put it right whenever – then we’ll know he tried
Raw plans become deep-fried, stored into the C: Drive and we thrive – that’s good enough for me, Clive!
We should incorporate ideas for debate, get former England players on board and their former mates
And they could formulate concepts, and inaugurate a new forum – they’d all be equal, no subordinates!
I’m sure we can find a role for Harry Redknapp – he’d be top, top class
And give Gazza something to do – keep him off the bottle and the shot glass
I believe in Southgate to lead us through the challenges we now face
I tell my housemates we won’t be outrun or outpaced
We got youthful flair – that much is truthfully there
It’s not just useful, it’s crucial in an extra-time affair
It is fruitful and shouldn’t be unusual when a World Cup’s in the air
So give it your approval if you’re not a neutral, and like me, you care
And through the door without pain, we can score against Spain
Breed more of those with a football brain, and the three lions will roar again!
