Comments from the Stand. 1.

That number six is useless,
He's no better than my daughter.
I tell you, man, I'll be surprised
If he's able to pass water.

That never were a penalty
Never in this world.
It couldn't be
'cause number three:
He tackles like a girl.

That should have been a booking.
He came in from behind.
Definitely a yellow card.
Ref, you must be blind.

How on earth did you miss from there?
You were only two yards out.
Call yourself a striker -
No wonder we've had a goal drought.

What sort of bloomin' markin's that?
The cover was too slow.
Their number nine had so much space
You'd think he got B.O.
