12 Days of Christmas
Written by SpiritOfJohn on Saturday, 3rd Dec 2016 11:55

To celebrate the festive season, here is a version of a familiar Christmas song with lyrics that could be sung by Marcus Evans.

On the first day of Christmas Mick McCarthy gave to me
A point when we should have had three.

On the second day of Christmas Mick McCarthy gave to me
Two shots on target
And a point when we should have had three.

On the third day of Christmas Mick McCarthy gave to me
Three midfield battlers
Two shots on target
And a point when we should have had three.

On the fourth day of Christmas Mick McCarthy gave to me
Four years of hoofing
Three midfield battlers
Two shots on target
And a point when we should have had three.

On the fifth day of Christmas Mick McCarthy gave to me
FIVE GOAL ATTEMPTS
Four years of hoofing
Three midfield battlers
Two shots on target
And a point when we should have had three.

On the sixth day of Christmas Mick McCarthy gave to me
Six passes completed
FIVE GOAL ATTEMPTS
Four years of hoofing
Three midfield battlers
Two shots on target
And a point when we should have had three.

On the seventh day of Christmas Mick McCarthy gave to me
Seven loans and freebies
Six passes completed
FIVE GOAL ATTEMPTS
Four years of hoofing
Three midfield battlers
Two shots on target
And a point when we should have had three.

On the eighth day of Christmas Mick McCarthy gave to me
Eight million for Mingsy
Seven loans and freebies
Six passes completed
FIVE GOAL ATTEMPTS
Four years of hoofing
Three midfield battlers
Two shots on target
And a point when we should have had three.

On the ninth day of Christmas Mick McCarthy gave to me
Nine stupid nicknames
Eight million for Mingsy
Seven loans and freebies
Six passes completed
FIVE GOAL ATTEMPTS
Four years of hoofing
Three midfield battlers
Two shots on target
And a point when we should have had three.

On the tenth day of Christmas Mick McCarthy gave to me
Ten changes for cup games
Nine stupid nicknames
Eight million for Mingsy
Seven loans and freebies
Six passes completed
FIVE GOAL ATTEMPTS
Four years of hoofing
Three midfield battlers
Two shots on target
And a point when we should have had three.

On the eleventh day of Christmas Mick McCarthy gave to me
Eleven fans still singing
Ten changes for cup games
Nine stupid nicknames
Eight million for Mingsy
Seven loans and freebies
Six passes completed
FIVE GOAL ATTEMPTS
Four years of hoofing
Three midfield battlers
Two shots on target
And a point when we should have had three.

On the twelfth day of Christmas Mick McCarthy gave to me
Twelve players tweeting
Eleven fans still singing
Ten changes for cup games
Nine stupid nicknames
Eight million for Mingsy
Seven loans and freebies
Six passes completed
FIVE GOAL ATTEMPTS
Four years of hoofing
Three midfield battlers
Two shots on target
And a point when we should have had three.

Congratulations to Mick and the team for equalling Sir Bobby's 1976 record. Let's hope they can go one better at Burnley. 8

Excellent, should be adopted, mind you with the dwindling crowds it would not be heard.

Spiritofjohn - i salute you

Manchester United have the same song but it's only about Eric Cantona

I assume that's so it makes it easier to learn - counting backwards from 12 can be hard enough
