"There's only one Neil Clement!"

Last updated : 12 January 2010 By Wba-mad Editor

The 6th January 2010
It became official on that day
So it seemed the perfect opportunity
To honour you in this way
Ten years is a long, long time
consistency is so hard to do
But throughout all that time
We could always rely on you
A quiet man about the place
until you laced up your boots
You let your football do the talking
With a most impressive left foot
You joined us in 2000
And helped to keep us alive
Then you were again on-hand
For the great escape of 2005
The Premier League beckoned
In 2002 and four and eight
Every time we stepped up a division
Clem you were just great
Three hundred games for the Baggies
A milestone for any player to reach
Now you can use all that experience
Imagine the skills and tricks you can teach
I wish you every possible success
I'm sure every Albionite does the same
A great player transferring to coaching
Neil Clement simply must stay in the game
