Listen to Your Manager

Be first to the ball! Pass it!
Get it down and play!
Put it out! Clear it!
No, the other way!
Spread out! Take a man!
Come on, get stuck in!
Give it early! Keep it tight!
Knock it down the wing!
Tuck your shirt in! Pull your socks up!
Tie those bloomin' laces!
Wakey, wakey! Get you head up!
You're not at the races!
Hold the line! Don't turn your back!
Turn and face!
Back door! Skills! Roast him!
Use your pace!
Winners! You can do this!
Who are you marking?
Peep! The ref's whistle.
At last, the game is starting.
