Football Manager Poetry

Top Football Manager poems for World Poetry Day written by FM fans.

March 21st is World Poetry Day and the official Football Manager account on social media had a go at a poem, inviting FM fans to share theirs as well.

Here's the relevant tweet

A newgen arrived with flair and acceleration,
Already fully capped by his nation,
Touted as the perfect wonderkid,
But the board went and accepted that bid.

Then more people responded to contribute their Football Manager poems for the cause. You can read some of them below.

Top 20 Football Manager Poems for World Poetry Day

Just one more game
The results have been bad ,the manager is to blame
Just one more game
I promise, I can turn it round again
Just one more game
I am the right man, I do proclaim


You're stats are falling rapidly
In FM terms at 30 you're getting old.
You're not in any core social groups
And you're even going bald.
You're not training very well & you're even getting curves
There will be no new contract...
Enjoy life rotting in the reserves.


My team's 3-0 up,
no way we will yield...
Then a voice from besides me says
"we are being overrun in midfield!"


I went to Torquay and had a great day,
competed in League One
oh how we’d won,
but now I must say
I demanded more pay,
and they gave me the sack
now I will never go back.


There once was a manager who managed so well
How did he do it? No one could tell
On came the final, like a seductive gal
"A team meeting is needed to boost the morale"
The assistant was stupid, he thought he was the boss
"I shouldn't have trusted him" I thought after the 0-2 loss


A crushing defeat,
Journalists persistent,
I gather my thoughts,
And send my assistant.


I searched intently for the perfect system
But the preset options just didn't list 'em.
So I tried instead, a clean slate experiment
That kept getting hammered, to my club's detriment.
I decided instead to cut the fuss
& channeled Mourinho, to park the bus.


My newgen promised me 5 stars
I thought he could take the club far,
Now he ended up on 3,
and as I booted him out of the club, I hurt my knee.


Results at a loss
The boards a dross
Vote of confidence bound,
Means pack your bags I've found.


I went and managed Newcastle,
Player morale became a hassle,
So I sold them all to become united,
I got sacked.. 'squad dynamics' they cited.


He had the flair, he had the pace
I played him twice a week.
Now his hamstring's torn
my chance is gone
goodbye Champions League.


A squad list with info and stats there before us
All managers should be happy to join in our chorus
When looking to find, our plea is so solemn
Please let us properly resize that column!


Newgen or Regen I don't care
As long as he passes shoots and dribbles with flair
In front of a defence that I need to invest
Ideally for Free like Taribo West
Formation set to 4-1-2-1-2
Mark Kerr, Lamptey and Freddy Adu
I feel the title getting nearer
Cherno Samba, To Madeira


Defences he'd regularly terror
But I made a cardinal error
'Well done on that cap'
And he gave me a slap
Now his starts are significantly rarer


I signed a young lad from Brazil,
He had pace and finishing and skill,
Cost me 8.5,
but when he arrived,
His value went up to 42mil.


A flurry of offers, to the board, I pray,
A frantic end to our deadline day
A lad from Brazil, another from Wales,
From Spain, Germany, offers prevail
And now I sit weeping, wage bill attrition,
Accidentally signed 'em for the same position.


I received an invite to speak to the press
Left my assistant to deal with the request
The answers he gave them, they didn’t impress
And squad morale is now far from the best.


Roses are red
I expect nothing less
Than a champions league title
By using Gegenpress.


He asked again for a chat,
My reserve forward on the bench sat.
Unable to please I let him go,
To a rival why I do not know.
Come derby day tied at the death,
All waiting with abated breath.
Stoppage time shot with deadly curve,
Scored the winner, the ungrateful reserve. 


There once was a man that resigned,
In a FM network game he was behind.
He asked the board to sign Mbappe,
His Leeds results had been crappy,
Now he's a meme, the internet's unkind.


So there you have it. Our top 20 Football Manager poems for world poetry day.
