Plymouth Argyle’s Best Friend
Plymouth Argyle were on a losing streak
They lost fifteen matches on the trot.
The manager tried all the formations
Bought new players but still
The losing streak continued.
After twenty losses the manager was fired
After thirty losses the next manager lost his job.
The Chairman’s desperate pleas for help
Were answered by a powerful wizard.
Who gave him a demon and
Said ‘It’s your lucky mascot’
But must be taken to every match.
They won all their next ten matches
Even beating Manchester united 10 – 0
Arsenal 8 – 0 and against Chelsea 5 – 0 in the cup.
The Chairman was interviewed and
Asked how was the transformation achieved?
He replied ‘Don’t you know,
Demons are Argyle’s best friend.’
