Wenger and Kroenke- An Accident Waiting to Happen?

Being an aging hipster (cough) I have copious amounts of old Billy Bragg on my iPhone. No apologies for that.

As I drive around, if I flick the car media player, my player seems to default to a random alphabetical playlist. I am a technophobe and have never managed to change this. So soon after The Jam with  ‘A Bomb in Wardour St’ comes a Bragg classic ‘An Accident Waiting to Happen’.

No matter how much I love the track from 1991, which essentially is a love song, I simply cannot listen and sing along to the chorus anymore, without one of two faces coming to mind – Usually Wenger, occasionally Kroenke, depending on my mood.

See if this accident is waiting to happen to you…….

Goodbye and good luck to all the promises you’ve broken
Goodbye and good luck to all the rubbish that you’ve spoken
Your life has lost its dignity, its beauty and its passion
You’re an accident waiting to happen

Time up and time out for all the liberties you’ve taken
Time up and time out for all the friends that you’ve forsaken
And if you choose to waste away like death is back in fashion
You’re an accident waiting to happen

Goodbye and good luck to all the promises you’ve broken
Goodbye and good luck to all the rubbish that you’ve spoken
Your life has lost its dignity, its beauty and its passion
You’re an accident waiting to happen
You’re an accident waiting to happen

Ah well! I’m glad I got that off my chest!

Here is the whole song for those who fancy a sing-along. You may find yourself singing TIME UP AND TIME OUT, with particular gusto or you may not……………..

Cheers for the sentiment Billy, even if you are a Hammer..
